    “A very pretty cottage with lots of potential but it has numerous issues.”

    We ...

    We have been left feeling that we have been ripped off as it was not as advertised. This property suffers from damp. Despite the owners numerous attempts to mask the smell we returned home having to wash all our clothes even those we did not wear. Be cautious, the floors into the bathroom and kitchen are not level, the wooden flooring abruptly ends. Additional parking only in the pub car park (next door) and the space allocated to the cottage it not clearly marked. The bathroom needs a total redecoration, it is really poorly finished. The double bed is less than a foot off the floor (although the mattress is very comfortable). The location though (Powburn) is centrally placed for great adventures exploring. Must see/visits: The Breamish Valley“ we did a walk to Linhope Spout Waterfall (1.5 miles from where you park“ a little rough underfoot in places) and then stopped at Ingram Cafe for a bacon sandwich (such friendly staff). Craster Seafood Restaurant “dog friendly and amazing food. If you are lucky, as we were, you can see dolphins from the shore at Craster on your walk to the castle there. The various castles/ruins around the area. Kelso “just over the border in Scotland.” The local beaches The local scenery/clear skies at night - amazing. Sycamore Gap on Hadrian’s Wall (was in the film Robin Hood Prince of Thieves) “ steep going in place

The property

This beautiful, double-fronted cottage is located in the square at Powburn village, in Northumberland.

It is the ideal retreat for a family of four or group of friends looking to explore National Parks, nature reserves and the beautiful coastline.

Once you have found hidden treasures, discovered a network of walking trails and historic sites, return to share a relaxing break together.

Step straight into the entrance hall and through to the living room, which plays host to a lovely dining area set in one corner, a lovely space to socialise with your loved ones.

Relax on the sofas in front of the woodburning stove and tune into the TV to stream one of your favourite movies.

The kitchen is home to modern, integrated appliances for you to cook up a delicious meal and there are French doors out to an enclosed garden area.

The ground floor is complete with a bathroom, featuring a shower over the bathtub and a modern finish.

Climb the stairs to a choice of two well-presented bedrooms; a double and a twin, offering flexible sleeping arrangements and soothing décor.

There are bedside tables and lamps, so you can enjoy an evening read before bed, as well as ample storage space to stow away your belongings.

Powburn is home to a village shop, however there are a wider range of amenities in Wooler, easily reached by car along the A697.

It plays host to a number of pubs, bars and eateries at the foothills of the Cheviot Hills.

You are also situated at the edge of Northumberland National Park and have all the delight of Alnwick and the coast at your fingertips.
