Chatton 1.5 miles.
A delightfully pretty, stone-built semi-detached cottage in the historical hamlet of Chillingham, in a unique position just a short stroll from Chillingham Castle and wild cattle park.
Set on a quiet, leafy back road to the castle, with the peaceful gurgling of a brook running by, this cottage is a perfect destination for a small family or as a romantic retreat for couples.
This cottage has two good sized bedrooms, a ground floor bathroom, well-equipped kitchen/diner and a cosy sitting room with woodburning stove for those chilly nights.
To the front there is a shared enclosed garden area, and a rear, private enclosed seating area, somewhere to stretch your legs and put your feet up after a busy day exploring this exciting region.
The pretty hamlet of Chillingham is steeped in history, occupying a strategically important location between two feuding nations; many a famous medieval king has passed through the hamlet to rest his weary men at the castle.
There are walks and cycle routes along picturesque roads on the doorstep of the cottage, which is also well positioned for exploring the rest of this vast county.
To the west lie the Cheviot Hills, with bracing walks and challenging cycle routes, and to the east the Heritage Coastline with its miles of sandy beaches and daunting castles including Warkworth, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh, Alnwick and Holy Island.
This cottage is ideally placed for exploring this beautiful county at any time of year.
