Winner of North East England Tourism Self Catering Property of the Year 2016, Woodside Lodge is a secluded 5 star Gold holiday home nestled in the gardens of an 18th century cottage, five miles south of Hexham, with far reaching views over pastureland and a wild life pond towards Slaley Forest, Dukesfield Fell and Hexhamshire Common.
It provides a peaceful and contemporary retreat ideally situated for exploring the spectacular landscape of the North Pennines AONB to the south west, to the north the Northumberland National Park, the world heritage site of Hadrian’s Wall and Kielder Water and Forest Park, and the Northumberland coast, while Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead are twenty miles east.
The half vaulted living space has a light and airy sitting area with a leather sofa, flat screen television with Freesat, contemporary fireplace, DVD player and ipod dock. Wide bi fold doors lead on to the terrace, with views over pasture and woodland.
The granite topped kitchen/diner is fully equipped with an induction hob, electric oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, washer dryer, and a comprehensive range of kitchen utensils.
A door leads off the living room into the bedroom, again with views over the fields and the pond, and stylishly furnished with a super king size bed which can be made up as two singles on request, oak wardrobe and side tables. Non allergenic duvets and pillows and pure cotton bed linen add to the experience.
The adjoining fully tiled shower room has a large walk in shower, wash hand basin and loo.
Outside there is a large decked area where you can sit and enjoy the tranquil views over the farmland , with a dining table and chairs, parasol, barbeque, and planters. Here you can sit and enjoy the views, or take a stroll across the field to the wildlife pond and watch the birdlife - in spring the curlews and lapwings gathering on the meadow, while in the summer the swallows swoop and dive over the grass, and buzzards soar lazily over the woodland.
A separate lockable dry storage area is available for bulky items such as walking gear, bicycles etc.
