  • "A lovely, dog friendly place to stay if you want to visit the beautiful Northumberland coast and further."

    Well appointed cottage, quiet location but only a short drive to the A1, lots of places to walk the dogs, and a really nice shop and pub a few hundred yards away. Friendly owners, we will definitely be back!

    Thankyou for your feedback and look forward to welcoming you back! Property Owner

    Good secure garden for our dog, who loved playing with the owner’s dog. The welcome pack (including dog treats) was great. One of the best information packs we’ve seen for a long time!

    It was lovely to meet you all - the dogs certainly enjoyed racing around the garden! Thank you for the great feedback especially regarding our information and welcome pack - we always aim to support local businesses Property Owner

    Shared garden but we didn’t see anyone the whole time we were there which was nice. Lovely size too for our 2 dogs. Stay was perfect lovely location, quite area, clean cottage. Only downside was the closest takeaways or supermarkets were in Morpeth but we actually liked it, it added to the experience being away from everything. All in all, 10/10 would definitely stay again. Anyone with dogs especially, this is your place! Kyle and Katie

  • "Our third visit to this cottage!"

    All great as usual apart from flaky wifi a couple of days, but this is something outside the owners control. Longhorsley is ideally situated for trips around the county, and Morpeth is only 10 minutes away if you want retail therapy. Local pub does good meals also. An ideal spot to explore the county from. Highly recommended.

    Thank you for your feedback - apologies for Wi-Fi intermittent issues due to the weather (windy and rain). Great to see you both again and enjoying the area and some of the lesser known places this time (Chillingham Castle) - hopefully see you again in 2024 Property Owner

    We arrived to a lovely welcome pack of essentials plus treats for our dog. The home was spotless and had everything you could possibly need and more. The use of the garden was lovely... you got to watch the village life go by over a cuppa of a morning. Clare and Scott go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and carefree making this place a must for anyone looking for a bit of Northumbrian beauty. We will definitely be returning.

    The Village Shop does lovely freshly made sandwiches and a great breakfast in a box. The welcome pack in the cottage was really generous with bread, milk, margarine, biscuits, fudge, apple juice, hand made dog biscuits and lots of bits and bobs such as shower gel, condiments etc. We visited Craster and did the walk to Dunstanburgh Castle, Cragside and walked up to the lakes, Wallington with its lovely walled garden and river walk, Druridge Bay which is a great beach for the dogs, we visited Amble and had a mooch around the harbour and shopping pods. All in all we had a nice relaxing break.

  • "Off road parking limited when used by other local residents."

    Security to property could do with being improved,door locks ,window latches.

    We have read your feedback and would like to respond with regards to your comments. Due to the cottage being situated on a quiet side gravel road it is used between 0830-0900 and 1500-1530 for locals to drop off/collect their children from the local lower school. After these times there is easy parking at the front of the property and the road is only used by people living within the immediate area. Regarding security of the cottage part of the charm of the 17th Century Grade 2 A listed cottage is that it maintains the original sash windows with all the latches being in full working order. The door locks have also been recently upgraded. We also have installed a high spec security system which is situated at the back and at the front of the cottage . The electric gates on the back of the property ensures that the garden and the rear of the cottage is secure. Property Owner

  • "We had a good feeling about The Old School room upon booking and, my word, we weren't disappointed."

    Where do I start - The building on this quiet little road, facing the walled vicarage has been around since 1751. We were situated in what was the old reading room. It was a joy to behold. Small, but big enough for the 2 of us and plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. Very well appointed for cooking (although we only had breakfast indoors), relaxation with many games stored away and topped off with Sky TV. The single beds were very comfortable aided and abetted with 2 fluffy pillows to sink into. We did a couple of walks from the doorstep and quenched our thirst and appetite at the Shoulder of Mutton, a must for Real Ale enthusiasts. The location is ideal for touring up and down the coast where we managed to concoct a few nice circular walks of varying distances. Morpeth, only 7 miles away, is a lovely clean & compact town with the Old Bakehouse off Newgate Street well worth a visit for a hearty lunch. It was our 4th visit to explore the beautiful Northumberland area and the The Old School Room will certainly feature in our plans.

    We really appreciated the free biscuits, milk and bread on arrival. The bottle of wine in the fridge was a lovely gesture too, although we didn't drink it on this occasion. A few minor improvements would have improved our experience: - somewhere to hang up our coats. - the sofa bed was pretty uncomfortable unfortunately. Alas, I fear this is just sofa beds, and it's no worse that others I have slept on. Mountains of cushions all over the place meant the place was very untidy in the morning. - we couldn't shut the bathroom window fully. - Because of the shape of the window the blinds didn't go all the way to the top and consequently the bedroom was very light. However, we understand that other options would detract from the lovely decorating. Worth bearing in mind if you or your children need darkness to go to sleep. - we didn't notice there was no dishwasher! Oops! These are all minor suggestion however. The cottage was well equipped, clean, and comfortable with a nice selection of books and DVDs too. It's a lovely village in a great location provided you have access to a car, and there is a lovely play park for the children a short walk away. Thank you.

The property

This Longhorsley cottage is part of a delightful, converted, stone-built, former schoolhouse adjoining the owner's home in the pretty village, ideally situated in the heart of the Northumberland countryside, just 14 miles south of Alnwick and 5 miles north of Morpeth.

The Old School Room was the school and parish room up until 1751, and still has its original bell tower.

This cottage is comfortably furnished and well-appointed throughout with wooden floors and original windows, and makes a great base for exploring this delightful area.

To the rear there is a pretty garden with furniture, an ideal spot for unwinding after a long day out and about.

The friendly village of Longhorsley has everything you could want for a stay in the countryside; within walking distance is the local pub, Shoulder of Mutton, serving good food and real ale, and a useful local store.

Longframlington is only four miles north on the A697 with its award-winning grocer's store and Rothbury Butchers at Highley Gate.

Bywell shooting ground and Burgham Park Golf and Leisure Club lie just two miles to the west, whilst a few miles' drive north will take you to 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, the first home in the world to be lit by hydroelectricity, and a very popular National Trust attraction.

A little further away enjoy the delights of Northumberland's ancient castles including Warkworth, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Alnwick with its amazing gardens.

The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is 40 miles north, here you can visit the Lindisfarne’s 16th century castle – the island is accessible from the mainland at low tide by means of a causeway.

This lovely cottage makes the ideal base for touring all of Northumberland's attractions throughout the year.
