Stylish cottage with views for miles of the valley, forest, stunning sunsets, and super starry night skies with access to sixty acres on the doorstep. Perfect for families, friends, and couples.

Located in the grounds of a sixty-acre country estate in the Tarset Valley in the Northumberland National Park with access to beautiful countryside and woodland from the doorstep, this charming former farmhouse offers quality accommodation in a stunning and tranquil area. Walk to nearby Black Middens Bastle House and the Sidwood Trail. Enjoy a range of outdoor activities such as cycling, walking, mountain biking, sailing, windsurfing, and kayaking on Kielder Water. Explore Kielder Forest's many trails and the Dark Sky Park’s breath-taking nightscape with millions of stars overhead. Visit Bellingham (7 miles) for shops, pubs, and restaurants and the Hareshaw Linn Waterfall, and head to nearby Greenhaugh village for a drink and dinner.

The beautiful stone-built cottage has been lovingly refurbished and tastefully furnished and decorated with wood flooring throughout and quality finishing touches. The main living accommodation is on the first floor to take advantage of the stunning views along the Tarset Valley and surrounding open countryside.

At mealtimes, the kitchen has everything you need to make a tasty meal with an electric range-style five-ring hob and double oven, a built-in microwave, a fridge/freezer, and a dishwasher.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
