  • "Had a wonderful time there."

    There were just the 2 of us staying for a peaceful break.So ideal.Good position for travelling into Kielder or back towards Bellingham.Spent most of the time at the table having our meals and looking out to see the lush green view and listening to all the different birds.....saw buzzards, osprey, oystercatchers, amongst others. Travelled up to the Scottish Border - that's as far North we got. If you want a peaceful, relaxing cottage to stay in - I would recommend it.

  • "We had a lovely week at Fox Cottage."

    We arrived late due to unexpected snow to find the wood burner lit and the cottage warm and cosy - a welcome surprise! Fox Cottage is beautifully furnished with every detail though of to make it a real home-from-home. The Pheasant Inn pub next door is a real treat (booking essential) and the surrounding area is breathtaking. We'd love to return when the weather is warmer to enjoy the outdoor area. A real gem!

    The welcome hamper was exceptional as were the provision of toiletries etc. The recent introduction of the hot tub is a plus. I think Jill is an excellent host.

  • "The bungalow was beautiful, spotlessly clean and very well equipped."

    The WiFi was good. First holiday for us with a dog and this was made to feel very easy and welcoming by the inclusion of a welcome doggy corner. The gravel garden was safe and enclosed. A welcome human hamper was also most welcome. The location is perfect for a lovely quiet holiday with lots of walking locally. Nearest small local shops 8 miles away, larger supermarkets about 40min drive. A beautiful location. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this bungalow to anyone, we would definitely are a return visit. Thank you for a wonderful week.

    The whole cottage exceeded our expectations it was furnished to a very high standard. Excellent having 3 bathrooms so everybody had their own bathroom. 2 en-suite plus lovely roll top bath with spectacular views of the countryside The cottage was warm & inviting especially when the roaring log fire was lit in the evening. The walk up the hill opposite the cottage was great for our dog Ted especially in the mornings Perfect location to get away from everyday life & fully recharge your batteries in peace & tranquility. Plenty of different Walks around keilder water only a few minutes drive away. Some suitable for a mobility scooter especially keilder waterside visitors centre. Lindisfarne ( Holy Island) & Beamish living museum both approx 1hr 30mins away & well worth a visit. Pub few minutes walk away but didn’t use it as we had the dog with us. Lovely extra touches including welcome basket including cheeky bottle of Prosecco not forgetting a lovely welcome for Ted including dog bed towel & blankets, dishes treats & toys ( Ted will definitely be booking again.) such attention to detail by the lovely owner Jill . It was all much appreciated & we will definitely be booking another stay.

  • "Probably could do with more refrigeration space as some way from the nearest supermarket."

    We did have a problem with the hot water/heating on a Sunday morning however somebody arrived very quickly to resolve the situation. It was an ideal location for exploring the water/forest and the observatory.

    The cottage is situated in a lovely hamlet in the surprisingly beautiful Northumberland countryside. With stunning country walks with breathtaking views all around us , it’s been a perfect holiday for myself, my new husband , our 17 year old son and our little dog Pocket. This beautifully restored and well equipped bungalow style cottage has been both cosy and luxurious. We would definitely rent this cottage again.

The property

Falstone 0.7 miles.

Fox View Cottage is a stone-built holiday home set in the quiet village of Stannersburn near Falstone, an ideal base for families and friends to explore the Northumberland countryside.

Make your way through the front patio and into an entrance porch, kicking off your muddy boots before settling down in the open-plan living space.

Here, the chef of the group can throw together their best home-cooking in the well-equipped kitchen before setting the table for a family dinner, whilst an alternative dining arrangement can be found on the elevated patio outside, perfect for alfresco dining.

You can also enjoy a soak in the hot tub on the patio, from which you can gaze at the twinkling stars at night in the beautiful dark sky.

Once dinner has been cleared away, get comfy on the plush furnishings or relax on the handy sofa bed and let the woodburning stove warm your toes as you flick through films on the Smart TV.

Also on the ground floor is a gorgeous king-size bedroom which benefits from its own en-suite shower room, ideal for those with limited mobility.

The rest of the rooms are found on the first floor, comprising a double with an en-suite shower room and a twin with lovely views, both offer ample storage and are served by a sumptuous bathroom with a relaxing freestanding bath.

Soak up the surroundings of Stannersburn and enjoy a romantic stroll around the encompassing countryside landscapes, from here you can head out on peaceful walking trails and challenging cycling routes over to Kielder Water where you can try out watersports.

The charming village of Falstone is under a mile away, boasting a quaint shop and tea room, as well as a country pub, great for stocking up on essentials and tucking into an afternoon pub grub.

Local attractions include Kielder Forest Park, the unique Northumberland International Dark Sky Park, Hadrian's Wall, and the Heritage Coastline further afield.

Alternatively, explore the encompassing Northumberland National Park, admiring breath-taking views and spending days out visiting the attractive hotspots of Bellingham, Newcastleton, Carlisle, and The Holy Island of Lindisfarne further afield.

About the location

FALSTONE

Bellingham 9 miles; Newcastleton 24.5 miles; Carlisle 49 miles.

The delightful village of Falstone lies at the foot of Kielder Water, the largest man-made lake in Northern Europe, and on the edge of Kielder Forest, the largest forest in Northern Europe. With probably the best ‘dark skies’ in England, and one of the most tranquil places in rural England, the area is ideal for outdoor activities. There are many signed walking paths through the forest, with the 26 mile Lakeside Way around the lake, as well as higher level fell walks. There are cycle tracks with different routes to suit a variety of abilities, plus fishing and an abundance of wildlife in the area, with red squirrel, roe deer and many bird species, including the Osprey. Hadrian's Wall is an easy drive away and there are many castles and fortified houses in the area, reminders from the times when the “Border Reivers” raided the Anglo-Scottish border. National Trust properties, including Wallington Hall and Cragside are also just a scenic drive away from this pretty village.
