This secluded stone cottage has everything for nature lovers – superb views of the rolling Cheviots, a pretty river minutes from the front door and a prime spot to view the region’s fabled dark skies.

Cheviot Cottage is a modern cottage situated in the scenic village of Alwinton in the Northumberland National Park. This cottage is ideal for countryside lovers, walkers and guests looking for a peaceful location with plenty of beautiful Northumberland attractions to explore! Star gazers will also enjoy staying here as it is part of Europe’s largest dark skies park.

Surrounded by unspoilt countryside, close to Harbottle Forrest and the River Coquet Cheviot Cottage is part of the Low Alwinton Cottages. The cottage is one of three stone built cottages and there are also three Scandinavian log cabins, all offering private enclosed gardens and off road parking. Anglers can test their skills on the River Coquet - famous for its challenging fishing. Or, simply soak up the wildlife; black grouse, ospreys and otters all being reported close by. If you prefer to venture further afield, just over an hour’s scenic drive will take you to the fabulous Kielder Forest, England’s largest forest and home to northern Europe’s largest lake.

Alternatively, another 40-minute scenic drive will take you to the popular market town of Alnwick, home to Alnwick Castle, one of the largest inhabited castles in Europe (made even more famous by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts and ITV’s Downton Abbey) and also to The Alnwick Gardens, featuring the renowned Tree House restaurant. You may also want to spend some time browsing over a coffee in of one of the largest second hand book shops in Europe, Barter Books, with its model trains pottering along above you head. A must vist in Alnwick!

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.
