    The Forge at Long Horsley was excellent. The added extras were a lovely surprise and a thoughtful touch. It was very good as a base to get to other places. We will book this accommodation again.

The property

This lovely single-storey, stone-built cottage is centrally located in the Northumberland village of Longhorsley, just 14 miles south of Alnwick and five miles north of Morpeth.

Comfortably furnished throughout this cosy cottage makes a great base for exploring this delightful area.

The small kitchen has all that is required to rustle up a simple supper which can be enjoyed in the dining area and then relax in the sitting area whilst planning your next day’s activities.

After a busy day out and about, there is a charming bedroom with an en-suite shower for a welcome retreat at the end of the day.

To the rear of this pleasant cottage there is a pretty garden with furniture, an ideal spot for unwinding with a cup of coffee and a good book.

The friendly village of Longhorsley has all you could want for a stay in the countryside and is within walking distance of two pubs, both serving good food and real ale, and a useful local store.

Why not take a short drive to Longframlington with its award-winning grocer's store and butcher's shop?

Alternatively, have a day out exploring Thrunton Wood, just the spot for a woodland walk or mountain biking - the spectacular views of the Cheviots from the top are worth the effort.

To the west lies Rothbury, with Cragside Hall, a very popular National Trust attraction, and all within easy reach, as are the delights of Northumberland's ancient castles including Warkworth, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Alnwick with its amazing gardens.

This lovely cottage is perfectly located for touring the beautiful, unspoilt county of Northumberland.
