A delightful, ivy-covered stone cottage situated on the outskirts of the Northumberland National Park, in the pretty and secluded village of Great Tosson.

Step into the modern fitted kitchen, with its pristine white units and sleek granite worktops offering ample preparation space to cook up a storm for the whole family!

With all the rooms being on the ground floor, you will have easy access to three brightly decorated bedrooms; two doubles and one twin, served by a family bathroom.

Each bedroom offers matching bedside tables and lamps, ideal for some late night reading and have delightful views across the countryside.

About the location


Alnwick 10 miles.

The capital of Coquetdale, Rothbury lies on the north bank of the famous salmon and trout river, the Coquet, and is dominated by the heather clad Simonside Hills. It is an attractive, small market town and its proximity to Northumberland’s National Park ensures excellent local walking. Stone houses, typical of the region, line the town’s steep main streets and there is a good range of shops on offer. With a golf course, public tennis courts and cycle hire close by and a variety of great houses and gardens to explore, including Cragside, Alnwick Castle (home of the Duke of Northumberland), Wallington Hall and a host of famous castles, this great location has plenty to offer. Hadrian’s Wall, Kielder Reservoir and Forest and the sandy beaches and dunes of the coast are also within easy driving distance.
