  • Spacious stone-built country Northumberland cottage close to a village pub
  • Stunning views, birdlife, and dark skies from the balcony and sunroom
  • Enjoy river walks, Hexham and Hadrian's Wall country, and return to relax in the enclosed garden
Property code: 88443

Surrounded by fields and near the confluence of two rivers, this wonderful stone-built cottage is the perfect rural retreat for a couple or family in the heart of the Northumberland countryside. Ramble along riverside walks, explore the nearby Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and discover a vibrant city known for its hospitality.

Step into this delightful cottage full of original features and feel instantly at home. Exposed stone walls are found throughout, and chunky wooden beams overhead add to the sense of rustic charm. From the bright and airy kitchen/diner that’s great for socializing to the cosy living room with its warming wood burner and the adjacent sunroom, there are plenty of places to relax and unwind whilst spending time with loved ones. Outside is a raised lawn with a patio positioned in a sunny corner, great for your morning coffee or an evening sundowner on the comfortable garden furniture. Soak tired legs in the pretty, blue-panelled bath before heading to bed in one of two inviting bedrooms, one on the ground floor and the other upstairs under the sloping eaves for the roof.

Located near the confluence of the North and South Rivers Tyne gorgeous walks begin at your doorstep. There is a popular pub half a mile down the road, and the nearby market town of Hexham (3 miles) provides a wide range of shops, pubs, and restaurants. Visit Hexham Abbey and enjoy afternoon tea in the courtyard, followed by a stroll around scenic Sele Park. Walk a section of Hadrian’s Wall or explore the breathtaking scenery and pretty villages in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which begins 7 miles away. The city of Newcastle (23 miles) is a fantastic place to spend the day with an amazing array of shops, bars and restaurants to peruse alongside a buzzing café culture enjoyed by some of the friendliest locals you are ever likely to meet.

The cottage was great location,lots to see and do in the area.We know the area so we took our friends out and about. Shame the boatside pub had been shut in the village for refurbishment as its a lovely place to visit. Instead went to Sun inn in Acomb village lovely food and atmosphere.

Wonderful cottage. Photos didn't do it full justice! Never stayed in a holiday cottage with so much equipment - masses of pots, pans, utensils, glasses. Towels and bedlinen very good quality. So warm - especially in the kitchen with only underfloor heating! Had to turn down radiators upstairs once we had warmed through. Some evenings we didn't evenRead more light a fire although the weather was awful with driving rain most days and so so so windy! Would definitely recommend this cottage. Hide
