Superbly located for walks and leisure in the Northumberland National Park, these stunning cottages are run by the owners and have some of the best views in Northumberland. Each property leads directly out to a myriad of footpaths and bridleways with sheltered valleys, hidden waterfalls and dramatic hills, rich in wildlife and recent archaeological finds.
This idyllic setting in the Breamish river valley and Cheviot foothills is a superb base from which to explore this historic County with its wealth of castles and historic houses. The market town of Alnwick is a short drive and just beyond are all of the beautiful open sandy beaches and coves forming the Heritage Coastline, including Holy Island and the Farne Islands, renowned for bird watching. We also have an interesting choice of inns, bistros and country restaurants in the surrounding area. Ingram café lies five minutes walk away as well as home cooking on site - pizza night and tasty arrival meals.
The Retreat offers a truly unique experience. An oasis of peace and tranquillity inside the National Park with private swimming spa pool actually inside the cottage.
This former stable block has been totally remodelled to create the most luxurious, secluded, spacious, two-person detached holiday cottage you can possibly imagine, complete with its own internal swimming spa pool with resistance currents and jacuzzis.
Gate Lodge is detached single-storey and includes a private quality hot tub and infrared sauna - the perfect luxury contemporary bolthole for celebrating any special occasion in high style and including especially a honeymoon or anniversary. Soak in your own private hydrotherapy hot tub gazing up at the stars then follow this amazing experience by relaxing in the deep heat of your private, indoor infrared sauna.
