  • “Lovely cosy cottage close to lots of great places- Alnwick Castle, Bamburgh.”


    Log burner makes lounge area cosy and warm in the evenings. Beds and bedding great, plenty of clean towels. Cottage warms up very quickly with the warm air heating. WiFi signal good. Lovely to have bread, scones, milk & butter when we arrived. Owner was lovely - lots of helpful information given over the phone. The only negatives for us were a lack of dishwasher (which we were aware of), and the electric shower wasn't very powerful. But this wouldn't stop us returning. Lovely stay- thank you.

The property

A cosy end-terrace property in the rural village of Powburn, nine miles from Alnwick.

This lovely cottage is ideal for couples or small families wanting a countryside break in the heart of the beautiful county of Northumberland.

Set just four miles east of the Northumberland National Park, this property is set over two floors, with one twin and one king-size double bedroom on the first floor, whilst the bathroom is on the ground floor.

The open plan living area is perfect for family holidays; what could be better than preparing supper and chatting around the kitchen table.

On those chillier Northumbrian nights, why not get the woodburner going and curl up and relax with your loved ones?

There is also a small sun room to the front of the cottage which is perfect for storing coats and boots.

There are a number of walks from the doorstep with the Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park tantalisingly close and are just waiting to be explored.

Alnwick Castle and Gardens are just ten miles away whilst a little further afield, the beautiful Heritage Coastline with castles galore will provide a wealth of history and endless beaches.

A perfect cottage for a countryside break.
