  • “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 ...

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.
