  • "Twincote is a delightful cottage, conveniently situated on the main road between Wooler and Milfield with great views over the valley."

    The cottage is clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Perfect for a couple. It was nicely warm on arrival and the woodburning stove was an added bonus. The welcome pack was smashing and included an Easter bunny and Easter eggs. Thank you. WiFi would make this the perfect retreat. We came last year too and will certainly come again.

  • "Had a very relaxing holiday at Twincote."

    House was very clean and homely with nice little touches. Loved the inglenook fireplace which was set for us to use. It was a very cosy place without the fire but was lovely to sit with a roaring fire which we both loved. Big thank you for the wine and chocolate biscuits that were left for us. We thoroughly enjoyed both and would highly recommend this quirky home which was close to all the places to visit Yvonne and George

  • "Despite the weather we enjoyed our visit and as already stated a lovely cosy cottage."

    Clean and well kept. Only problem we could see is that the parking area is tight if you have a big or estate car. Would highly recommend to anyone.

    We can depend on the weather for letting us down but we're pleased you were able to have a lovely holiday in Northumberland. Thank you for your recommendation too, appreciated. Property Owner

    Drive for car only suitable for small cars. Would definitely stay again if in the area. Central for visiting many attractions.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have trimmed back the bushes in the parking bay so that it is back to its full size and can accommodate larger cars again. Pleased you had a lovely holiday Property Owner

  • "This is a good base for visiting lots of places."

    Twincote is a nice little place, however if you are a tall person (or even shorter like myself at 5’3”) there are a few bumping head hazards. My husband at 6’3” spent practically the whole 7 days walking stooped over. Getting in and out of the shower was a task in itself. The Cottage had quite an off putting old smell when first walking in. The kitchen sink wasn’t too clean,I felt the need to clean it myself, the dishcloth was quite dirty afterwards. We actually left it cleaner than when we arrived. It was brown from I suspect tea/teabags being left/tipped down it and there was food crumbs stuck to the bottom of the bowl. The upstairs however, was spotlessly clean. The bed & pillows very comfortable. Had no qualms about sleeping on it. Great to have a parking space but very difficult to park in it as quite tight, especially as it’s on a very busy road. Wouldn’t suit a bigger vehicle.

    Hello, I truly apologise for the shortfalls you found in the kitchen. We were on holiday ourselves so had different cleaners do the cottage and obviously didn't do the task in hand to our usual high standard. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the 'quirky' features of Twincote and i hope the bumped heads weren't so bad. We have since trimmed back the foliage around the parking bay which has cleared the parking bay so that it easily accommodates larger cars. Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage with everything you could need."

    It was clean and comfortable. The view is wonderful and the sun room and binoculars a bonus. Very friendly owners. A very thoughtful welcome pack. Quite a busy road but off road parking a real bonus.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. We hope you were able to catch sight of the barn owl hunting over the fields in the evenings? Property Owner

    Home was spotless and had everything you need for a stay. Nicely decorated and provided a comfortable base to come back to after a busy day visiting all of the local attractions or walking in the beautiful countryside around Wooler.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback it would be lovely to see you again. Property Owner

    Wooler was about a mile from Humbleton and well worth investigating. The owner had been very thoughtful, leaving everything you could need. The area, of course, was a walker's paradise. Enjoyed every moment there. Fred and Helen

  • "We had a wonderful few days at Twincote."

    The cottage was perfect for a couple. It is well equipped, comfortable and beautifully furnished with exquisite taste. Easy off road parking for one car. The woodburner was a bonus but not really needed as the electric heaters were excellent. The sun lounge was delightful with fabulous views across the valley. WiFi would have been an added bonus, but it kept us off the Internet for a few days. Overall, we would definitely book again and recommend the cottage without hesitation.

    Very well equipped kitchen. Towels, tissues, cleaning bits, wood etc. all to hand. We took lots of self catering bits with us but it was all there. Amazing. Gorgeous fireplace, we enjoyed sitting in front of that each evening. Great free view TV. Well situated for visiting Cragside, Bamburgh, Lindisfarne etc. Hoping to go back and stay again.

  • "Low ceilings a significant down point in an otherwise lovely cottage."

    Parking access difficult from busy road. Low wall could be removed to widen car park space. A better information pack would help. I.e it’s one thing to tell how to turn hot water on. It’s another to find it when not told where it is! Small thing, but would have been helpful. This cottage had least info and most unclear of any cottage we have stayed in.

    The cottage was everything we expected and more the views were magnificent although the sign on the door said a small cottage we thought it was larger than we expected, a great centre for exploring the area and coast. We would highly recommend this to anyone.

    It is ideally located for visiting the many castles, such as Alnwick, Bamburgh, Chillingham and Dunstanburgh, and the wonderful coastal sites such as Holy Island and the Farne Islands. The only slight negatives [hence, 4 stars, rather than 5] are the lack of wifi, and the need to manoeuvre round the sloping ceilings in the bedroom and ensuite - but we had a lovely holiday at this charming cottage.

The property

Settled on the outskirts of the historic market town of Wooler, at the foot of The Cheviots, rests this characterful one-bedroom cottage, Twincote.

Enjoying close proximity to the rural delights of Northumberland National Park as well as the England/Scotland border, Twincote makes an excellent base for a couple looking to explore the delights of this sought-after area.

A private off-road parking space greets you upon arrival, making unloading your belongings and settling into your new home-from-home an easy task.

Stepping inside, be charmed by the characterful interior of the open-plan living/dining room, where a rustic woodburning stove sits within an inglenook fireplace, enticing you to cosy up on the sumptuous corner sofa with your better half as the flame crackle nearby.

Moving through the ground-floor, discover the well-equipped kitchen, where an elegant breakfast bar invites you to share a bottle of wine with the designate chef as they get to work on preparing a romantic meal for two.

The adjoining sun room provides an idyllic spot to enjoy an evening tipple, whatever the weather, whilst you can make use of the gravelled front garden in the warmer months.

A well-presented double bedroom can be found tucked beneath the sloped ceiling of the first-floor, where an elegant Velux window will flood the room with natural light in the morning, whilst you can get ready for the day ahead with a blissful soak in the en-suite bathroom.

The heart of Wooler rests a short distance from Twincote, where you'll find a bustling high-street home to all of your local amenities, including hearty cafes, traditional pubs and handy takeaways, ideal for those evenings where you fancy a break from doing the cooking, whilst you can stock-up on essentials at the convenience store as well as the new Whiskey distillery in Wooler called Ad Gefrin.

Enjoying a rural position at the foot of The Cheviot Hills, you're in an outdoor adventurers paradise; wrap up warm and enjoy a peaceful stroll through the scenic greenery of Wooler Common, lace up your walking boots and hike to the summit of Humbleton Hill, or take a step back in time and discover the remnants of Hadrian's Wall, running nearby through Northumberland National Park.

The town of Coldstream is easily accessible, resting just over the border in Scotland, home to Coldstream Museum, Hirsel Golf Club and the iconic Coldstream Bridge, whilst Alnwick Castle can be found in the opposite direction, famed as the backdrop behind Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the Harry Potter movies.

A memorable retreat to the country for two awaits at Twincote.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
