If you’re planning on visiting the vibrant city of Newcastle, accommodation options like ours combine city access with all the comforts of home. Hill Top Cottage is a cosy, modern cottage for up to 4 people in 2 double bedrooms, with 2 bath/shower rooms located just outside the village of Lamesley - and better yet, you’ll find a fantastic local pub (The Ravensworth) nearby, which serves food. Access to the city of Newcastle upon Tyne is an easy drive from the cottage, and you’ll be within easy reach of the A1 motorway - for access to the beautiful county of Northumberland.
This is one of our most ideally situated Newcastle cottages - with Northumberland’s stunning heritage coastline and pretty, coastal villages and castles to the north, while the historic Cathedral City of Durham and many Areas of Outstanding Beauty (AONB) can be found to the south. Put simply, there are countless sights and local attractions to see during a city break in the North East!
When it comes to self catering, Newcastle upon Tyne is packed with suitable accommodation options. Hill Top Cottage is a recently built, detached, stone-built self catering property set in pretty, open countryside - with ample parking, spacious garden and patio areas, and a unique, purpose-built timber-frame gazebo (where you can enjoy a meal outdoors, or invite friends to join you for a drink and a BBQ). You’ll find horses grazing in the nearby fields from time to time, and breath-taking views across rolling hills.
The Angel of the North is a short drive from here, and retail lovers will be positively spoilt for choice at the Intu Metro Centre - just a 15-minute drive away - with a large Sainsbury’s nearby for your day-to-day needs. The greatest draw when it comes to cottages near Newcastle is, of course, the chance to explore the bustling city centre - which you can reach in just 20 minutes by car - making this the perfect place to stay during your city break.
Free guest Wi-Fi, bed linen, towels, heating and hot water included.

Nice and warm and finished to a high standard. Had everything we wanted, we loved the locations and friendliness of the owner Massy. We intend to try to stay here next time we visit that part of the country. The cottage was clean, warm and well appointed. Was everything we needed. Massy was very friendly and left us alone when we did not need him. We really enjoyed our stay there.

Bright, spacious and clean. Was a comfortable place to stay. If we ever come back to the UK will book and suggest to friends. Our Host was lovely, very helpful when my son became sick. The cottage was a home away from home, very comfortable.

Very clean, well maintained, all round it exceeded our expectations and we were thrilled with our choice. Very clean all round. Cupboards, windows, curtains and bedding all very clean. We were very impressed with the cleanliness. Our stay at Hilltop Cottage was everything we could have wanted. A lovely greeting from the owner, a fridge with water milk and a complimentary bottle of wine and a box of cakes was so appreciated by us all. We will definitely return and we were sad to have to leave and return home as we were enjoying our holiday in the lovely North East. Beamish and Hadrian's Wall are must see attractions as well as the beautiful beaches and of course the Angel of the North. The standard was so good it felt like home, can't wait to return!
