Enjoying an elevated location with views across the rolling countryside, tastefully finished and just perfect for couples looking to get away and enjoy Northumberland, whatever the time of year.

For a truly romantic getaway along the historical Hadrian's Wall, stay at this cosy property deep in the scenic Northumberland countryside. Located between the North Pennines and Northumberland National Park, it's perfect for those who appreciate Mother Nature's finest creations. Go mountain biking, rock climbing or hiking in breathtaking scenery by day, followed by evenings curled up by the wood burner with your significant other. On clear nights, head out to your private decking and point out star constellations to each other in this International Dark Sky Reserve.

The holiday home is part of the owner's property, but you won't be disturbed at all during your stay. Enter your rural haven through a garage door – you'd never have guessed a cottage hides behind it. There's an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner where you can cook together before sitting down to food; this area is where you'll create those special holiday moments. Outside, a beautiful south-facing garden with spectacular views over the surrounding area awaits – on sunny days, sit out there with a novel and a hot drink, absorbing the stunning scenes between pages.

There's plenty of interest right on your doorstep. If you're a history fan, wander to Vindolanda (1.5 miles) and Housesteads Fort (4 miles), two fascinating Roman archaeological sites. You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a walking trail nearby; head north to the national park (2 miles) or south to the North Pennines AONB (10 miles) and explore low-lying mountains, sweeping valleys and vast expanses of beautiful moorland. To experience the largest forest in England and the biggest manmade lake in northern Europe, pack a picnic and spend a day out in the breathtaking Kielder Water and Forest Park (35 miles).

Low ceilings could be a problem for taller people and water temperature was dangerously hot - the owner did warn us about this. Lovely peaceful location,relaxing and close to lots of Roman sites and walks,owners were helpful but not intrusive.

Reviewed by Adrian 1st July 2019

The only issues is that there is no dining table so you have to eat at the breakfast bar, and the ceiling upstairs is low so anyone over 5'10" tall is likely to bump their head

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.
