Courtyard Cottage is a beautifully furnished holiday cottage, set in the grounds of Riding Hills Farm, on the outskirts of Riding Mill. Perfectly formed, this compact annexe style cottage has been well designed and offers a separate kitchen, open plan living/bedroom with a small, en-suite shower room and is an idyllic retreat for couples. The cottage is on one level, with just three broad steps up to the entrance, so is suitable for guests with restricted mobility. The kitchen houses a beautiful Everhot range cooker with 2 large ovens, cast iron hot and simmer plates with an integral grill. The living area is tastefully decorated and has two comfortable armchairs and a 42-inch smart TV. The bedroom area has a king size bed and leads into a small, en-suite shower room, with wash basin and toilet. There is a designated parking space a short distance to the rear, together with a delightful picnic area overlooking the uninterrupted countryside surrounding Riding Hills Farm.

Riding Mill stands on the south bank of the Tyne, sixteen miles west of Newcastle and five miles east of Hexham. The village has a welcoming pub, the Wellington, which has a warm and cosy atmosphere, traditional British food with great service.

Also within the village is Riding Mill station, dating back to 1835, where the original building still stands and is fully operational, connecting you along the Newcastle to Carlisle line. For a unique experience, why not book the ‘Passage to India Train’ which departs from Newcastle and passes through Riding Mill, to connect you to the award-winning Valley Restaurant at Corbridge.

Just four miles away is the beautiful historic village of Corbridge, with a range of interesting Roman sites to visit and St Andrews Church in the centre with its Saxon window, Roman arch and Norman door. The village has innovative and interesting shops, pubs and coffee shops and its bridge dating back to the 17th Century – the only bridge to survive the great flood of 1771 – ‘such was the height of the water that during the night persons stood on the bridge and washed their hands in the river’ – (WJ Palmer 1882).

There are some great local places to eat and drink nearby, including the Wellington (1 mile), the Duke of Wellington (5 miles), the Angel of Corbridge (4 miles), the Manor House (7 miles) which are all great pub/restaurants and of course, Wheelbirk's award winning yummy Ice Cream parlour is only 10 minutes away by car - a must visit!!

Bed linen, towels, heating and hot water are all included.

I stayed at Courtyard Cottage in Riding Mill and I had a super time. A very nice pub is around 1 mile away and the pub is right next to the train station which will take you into Newcastle. The place we stayed was small, but cosy and perfect for an individual or couple. The host is charming and very helpful in all ways he can be with good local knowledge. A worth while trip!
