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.
