  • An idyllic 19th century stone cottage nestled in a secluded and picturesque woodland, offers superb views of the Derwent Valley
  • Perfect for exploring Hexham, Hadrian’s Wall and the heart of the Northumberland countryside
  • An ideal holiday base for nature-lovers, birdwatchers, keen walkers, cyclists and sightseers
Property code: CN195

With stunning views of the Derwent Valley, this fantastic 19th century stone cottage provides a real retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. With guest access to the surrounding 900 acres of private woodland, forest paths and beautiful countryside, The Deeps presents a true rural idyll set in its own half acre of enclosed land. Staying at The Deeps also offers guests some fantastic opportunities to stargaze in Europe’s largest Dark Sky Park and the local shops, restaurant and pub are close by.

This is the former home of British comedy actor Rowan Atkinson and is situated along a private road near to the hamlet of Hunstanworth in the Derwent Valley. The beautiful little village of Blanchland, which is within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is only 2 miles from the property. It is very popular with guests wishing to walk in the surrounding countryside or sail and fish on Derwent Reservoir. Birdwatchers are also regular visitors to the area with sightings of Red Kites and Lapwings occurring frequently. There are some shops, a post office, a tea-room, a great pub and old parish church in the village.

Nearby Hexham and Corbridge, delightful market towns, and famous Hadrian’s Wall are only 11 miles to the north of this property and definitely worth a visit. The historic university town of Durham is about 30 miles away and a fantastic day out for all the family with plenty of restaurants, river walks, rowing, Durham Castle and Durham Cathedral. Beamish Open Air Museum, ideal if you have children, is only 15 miles away.

Slightly further afield is the metropolitan city of Newcastle Upon-Tyne. Why not take a walk along the quayside to take in some of the famous sights of the city?

This cottage accepts two well behaved dogs.

Lovely cottage. Everything well catered for. Our autistic grandson had the time of his life playing freely in the garden but mostly the paddock. He only had 1 night of disturbed sleep which is a massive thing for him. The remote location affords stunning views. We will certainly be back at some point
