Bright and modern single-storey cottage next to farmland with captivating views of The Cheviot Hills, stunning sunsets and official National Park Dark Skies. Perfect getaway for a family or couples.

Pack up your hiking boots for a stay in this Northumberland walker’s paradise. Located at the northern brink of the Northumberland National Park, this farmhouse property is within effortless reach of an endless selection of fantastic waymarked walking routes, the stunning scenery of Scottish Borders towns and the dramatic seascapes of the Northumberland Coast AONB. This single-storey accommodation happily hosts four guests and up to three dogs making it the perfect selection for an outdoorsy family or adventure-ready group of friends to rest, recharge and enjoy one another's company before heading out on daily excursions in the surrounding areas.

Fully decked out for you to make the most of your stay, we can assure you that your time here will be spent in comfort. Step up into the open-plan living space to be greeted by underfloor heating, a delight for cold toes in the winter months. A utility room presents an abundance of space to store wet coats and muddy boots – don’t forget to use the outdoor tap to clean off paws or wellies before heading inside. Once you’ve slipped into something more comfortable, you can spend your night in the open-plan living space or out on the decking. The patio space is furnished for al fresco drinks and dining with views of Northumberland all around you, a wonderful way to end a day before heading off to one of two bedrooms.

Stay well connected when staying here, jumping in the car to spend time in the tourist hubs of Kelso (9 miles), Berwick-upon-Tweed (17 miles) or the Northumberland Coast (18 miles). Step out late at night to discover the unrivalled night skies of the neighbouring Northumberland National Park (1.5 miles), enjoying an evening stroll with stars twinkling up above.

A beautiful, well presented modern cottage in a very quiet area. It was very clean on arrival. We have loved our stay here despite the bad weather. The Bothy is on the side of the road and you do hear the cars go by but the road is so quiet that it does not bother you. A welcome dog walk is just across the road. Kelso is about 15 minutes drive awayRead more with a supermarket there. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Hide

A lovely cottage which was well equipped and cozy. It is set in a quiet location, although on the side of a road it is not very busy and did not affect us at all.
