  • "David and Sheila are fantastic hosts."

    This is the 2nd time we have been to the cottage and it was as beautiful as before. Everything you could need is supplied, very comfortable and like a "home from home". We would recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a base or just somewhere to chill out.

  • "Cottage was in a good location for exploring Northumberland."

    It was great that it had private parking. The Kitchen and bathroom could do with some updating and freshening up. The cottage could really do with a proper deep clean and a redecorate as was quite scruffy in places. We did have to wash up some of the crockery and cutlery before we could use it! Some positives - the beds and bedding were comfortable. Sofas were comfortable. Good size for what we wanted, and had all the equipment we needed.

  • "Wonderful cottage to stay in, clean and well presented and equipped."

    The cottage is deceptively big and although there is no back garden there is a lovely seating area at the front and the added bonus of a private parking space. Ideally situated for exploring Northumberland and the Scottish borders. We will be back. Thanks Steve, Steve, Leah, Ange and Bunty the dog.

    The cottage is comfortable, although the single downstairs dining, kitchen, lounge living space is small. A good base if you intend to be out and about. A friendly introduction by the owners on arrival with wine and shortbread welcome pack.

    Great location to visit local attractions and the town has all you need and also a local coop two mins walk away. House was well equipped and had plenty of games and books to hand. Only one thing that it was missing was the washing machine although I was told that we could use the one at number 27 two doors up. Thanks for a great stay

  • "David and Sheila kindly left us some milk, water, biscuits and fizz so that was a lovely welcome."

    The cottage was comfortable and well equipped. The beds in the twin room were very comfy and provided a good night's sleep. There were plenty of books and games aswell as lots of info about the area. Disappointed that the photos and description didn't mention that the outside seating area was not enclosed, especially with having a dog. Also, I think that downstairs should not be carpeted as in the kitchen area it is quite stained. It was a bonus having a parking space as Wooler, which is a lovely little town, could get busy and parking becomes a premium.

  • "Perfect little place for visiting a lot of historical sites."

    Wooler in itself is a lovely place, with a few lovely pubs, a hotel which does a fantastic Sunday lunch, a Co-op in easy walking distance for all your culinary needs. We did have a slight issue the day before our arrival. The owners of the property contacted us to advise of a boiler issue. (No hot water) It did not stop our enjoyment of our holiday albeit no hot water to soak in a bath after a day walking the area. A kettle on all 3 floors was provided plus a free Sunday lunch for our inconvenience. Would certainly stay again at the property.

    It is quite small, but very comfortable for a couple. The beds look brand new, and the king size bed was very nice indeed. It would best suit either a couple or a family with primary aged children, as the only bathroom is through the main bedroom, though there is a toilet and a washbasin near the other bedroom. The stairs are very steep, so perhaps not so suitable for small children or the less mobile. The owners live nearby, and are very helpful.

The property

Situated in the delightful town of Wooler in Northumberland, is this lovely terrace cottage, 31 Peth Head, set over three floors in this pretty row of traditional stone built cottages.

It is wonderfully suited to a family or couples, with its three floors of carefully decorated rooms and use of original features such as wooden beams.

The property journey begins in the open-plan living space, with your eyes immediately darting to the striking teal sofas set around the electric fire and TV, a perfect place to spend a rainy evening, being warmed in front of the fire.

Behind this is the dining table for four so you can share a meal with the family, cooked up in the pretty light and bright kitchen containing all the essential appliances you need, cleverly maximising the under-stair space.

At the top of the stairs on the first-floor is a handy cloakroom containing a WC, just across from the twin room which has storage space and a walk in wardrobe, a TV and a window with views out to the village and hills beyond, and benefiting from a vanity unit with basin and mirror in the corner, the understairs cupbaord on the first floor houses drying facilities.

Continue up to the second floor when it's time to get some shut-eye and find the beautiful and spacious master bedroom, complete with floral curtains and matching cushions, along with solid wood furniture in-keeping with the property's vintage style, with an en-suite bathroom adjoining the room.

To the outside at the front of the house is a patio area with table and chairs, where you can sit out on a sunny evening for some alfresco dining.

The town of Wooler is a great base location for keen walkers who are looking to make the most of the Northumberland countryside, and wanting to visit the Glendale, Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park for some fantastic walking and stunning scenery and views.

To the east is the magnificent coastline of Northumberland which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with great trips to be had to Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Seahouses harbour, or the birdwatcher's paradise of The Farne Islands.

Whatever your reason for visiting this northern part of England, you will love coming home to 31 Peth Head every evening.
