  • "Really enjoyed our stay in an immaculately clean and welcoming cottage which was well equipped and very comfortable."

    The welcome pack was one of the best we have experienced and I must say the information pack left with where to go and what to do was great. The hot tub was maintained daily, but we were not disturbed at all by the owners. Overall everything was very good and I would recommend this cottage as a restful retreat within easy reach of all the lovely areas of Northumberland.

  • "The cottage was perfectly positioned to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Northumberland."

    It was a very comfortable and we relaxed from day 1. Hot Tub was great after a good walk & the garden was a perfect sun trap as we had a very hot sunny week. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider returning

  • "The property is really lovely Laura & Paul provide excellent communication and present the Cottage to a very high Standard."

    The little garden and Hot tub are an additional gem. The welcome pack is beyond doubt the best we’ve ever had! The hosts are on hand whenever you need them and nothing is too much trouble. Excellent Hosts 5⭐️ Our only suggest would be to state in the Facilities that The “Smart TV” only provides Apps and has no basic channels live. You get used to it but it gives clarity to prospective clients.

  • "We have just come back from a week at Crag View and would echo what others have said about the cottage being both delightful and comfortable."

    The large, homely living room was lovely, and the kitchen was superbly equipped. The hot tub was a real treat at the end of the day, and spotlessly clean, whilst the secure enclosed garden was perfect for our small dog. That said, we were unprepared for (and not used to) the noise from the A68; HGV’s during the week and motorbikes at the weekend. For that reason, we will not be returning. If this cottage were away from the road, it would have been a 5 star review because everything else was just perfect. When we complained to Sykes that the photographs of "views across the fields" were a bit misleading as they cut off the road, the representative rather (un)helpfully said that it was our own fault for not doing our homework as the listing gives a link to Google Maps. So, don't be like us, do your homework. In our defence, our original booking somewhere else was cancelled by Sykes and Crag View was our only alternative option at short notice. If you don't mind road noise you will love this cottage.

    Like home from home and in such a lovely location too. After walking in the day then hot tub in the evening followed by sitting around the log burner was a perfect day. This was February, I bet it’s even more fantastic through Spring and Summer. We would 100% return and recommend.

  • "This is a lovely cottage renovated to a very high standard."

    The main bedroom is incredibly comfy, the hot tub was perfect after a long walk. The property is toddler friendly as it's mainly all on one level and carpeted. The owners were also incredibly friendly and quick to respond to any queries we had.

    Spotlessly clean, well equipped and above all, warm and comfortable. The photos on the website don't do it justice. The welcome hamper was very generous and thoughtful, the stove fire was a real highlight and the jacuzzi was a real luxury. If you want relaxation and a chance to unplug from the world, with a friendly pub less than 100m from your door, come here.

  • "From the moment we opened the front door of the cottage we were blown away."

    Entry into a very large living room with modern furniture and a big inglenook fireplace with log burner. The kitchen is newly fitted, with all the mod cons and kitchenware that you could hope for. Bedrooms were clean and well fitted, although we only used the main bedroom. King size bed (very comfy), fitted wardrobes, iron and board, hairdryer, Hoover all provided. Bedding and towels provided. Garden was neat and tidy and we made full use of the hot tub and chimnea. Hot tub was serviced daily by the owner, who is a really friendly guy. All logs/kindling provided. Can’t forget to mention the welcome pack on arrival with tea/coffee/sugar/biscuits and a bottle of fizz (and a bottle of milk in the fridge). Our dogs loved it, and the garden being fully walled means the garden is really secure. We will definitely be back to Crag View again. Highly recommended.

The property

A delightful, single-storey, stone-built cottage, situated in the seemingly timeless village of West Woodburn, opposite lush fields and farmland.

Renovated to a high standard, this lovely end-terrace property is spacious and comfortable, boasting light and airy living space for a couple or small family wanting to escape to peaceful Northumberland, while also being well-placed to discover the Northumberland National Park, coastline and Scottish Borders.

Entering the property from the rear entrance, you will find a well-equipped kitchen, with a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and cooker for you to prepare meals for the group, which can be enjoyed in the dining room/sun room, a bright space which looks out onto the lovely garden.

The cosy sitting room has soft grey carpets, along with leather sofas and an armchair, placed around a coffee table and facing the stunning inglenook fireplace complete with warming woodburning stove, while the corner TV can provide added entertainment.

There are two double bedrooms with ample storage space, while one has fitted mirrored wardrobes, and a family bathroom with shower over bath completes the layout.

Outside there is off-road parking for one car and an enclosed reaer garden with a raised decking area, complete with hot tub and furniture, perfect for ending your day with a touch of luxury, along with a spacious lawn and further outdoor furniture, gathered around a delightful chiminea, ideal for staying toasty on a cooler evening outdoors.

West Woodburn provides a village pub and post office, while the nearby historic village of Otterburn, with its stunning views over the North Tyne Valley, is a haven for walkers and cyclists.

Head into the Northumberland National Park to find Kielder Forest and Water, superb for fishing, horse riding and nature watching.

Kielder Water and Forest Park, along with the adjoining Northumberland National Park, have been named as home to the largest area of protected night sky in Europe; the Dark Sky Park is the first of its kind in England, and one of largest in the world, while Kielder Observatory is a key visitor attraction.

One of Britain's most popular attractions, Hadrian's Wall, an English Heritage Site that stretches 73 miles between coasts, is just 15 minutes' drive from the property, while the lively city of Newcastle upon Tyne is within easy reach, home to shopping, eateries and bustling nightlife.

Drive up to the Scottish Borders for stunning countryside and attractions such as Melrose Abbey, Jedburgh Abbey, Castle Jail & Museum, Mary Queen of Scot's Visitors Centre, Neidpath Castle and Glentress Forest in Peebles and Floors Castle & Abbey, Kelso Abbey and Kelso Bridge in Kelso.

With so many opportunities for exploring on your doorstep, make Crag View your holiday base for a Northumberland getaway.
