Overview

Nestled at the edge of a magical and beautiful private lake The Boathouse has been converted to a very high standard and will be available from May 2017.  A haven for wildlife and the perfect base for your holiday in Northumberland you are in an area very popular with walkers and cyclists. The cottage is in a peaceful and secluded location with only the wildlife and the occasional fisherman to disturb you.  With superb historic places such as Wallington Hall, Belsay Hall, Cragside or Alnwick Castle and gardens all within easy reach.  The famous, wild and beautiful Northumberland coastline is also within a 40 minute drive, so who could ask for more?

 

Imagine yourself sitting in front of the roaring log burning stove on those cooler evenings and looking out at the lake through the magnificent picture windows that truly bring the outside into your living room.  Or sitting on the glass fronted balcony watching the wildlife while you sip a glass of wine and watch the beautiful sunsets across the water.

 

The cottage itself has two spacious double bedrooms each with its own en suite shower/bathroom.  The kitchen is well equipped with all you could want for your holiday.  Two nearby pubs will welcome you and for more sophisticated dining you are only a few miles from the lovely market towns of Morpeth or Rothbury or from Ponteland.  For those wanting a busier day or evening out Newcastle or the Metro Centre at Gateshead are readily accessible with shops, restaurants, cinemas and theatres. 

 

It may be possible to arrange some fishing on the well stocked lake if you want to give it a try – get in touch and we’ll see what we can arrange for you.  If you are interested in bringing your horse on holiday with you get in touch and we can help you to put together a bespoke holiday package.

 

Pets will be allowed at the owner’s discretion as she needs to be confident that the wildlife won’t be disturbed by their presence.  We truly look forward to welcoming you to The Boathouse.

If you are interested in taking your horse(s) on holiday with you get in touch and we may be able to help you to benefit from riding in this glorious countryside.

Road directions

From Newcastle take the A696 towards Jedburgh.  Towards the end of Belsay Village, after the shop and the school, take the second right turn signposted to Scots Gap and follow the road for just over 6 miles to a T junction on the B6343 (left to Scots Gap and Rothbury/ right to Hartburn and Morpeth).  Turn right and follow the road for 2 miles.  You will go past a farm on your left and then is a sharp right hand bend followed shortly by a left hand bend - the entrance is the next turn off on your left (opposite a farm track).

Fabulous


JCH124, North East
The Boathouse is one of the nicest places we have stayed in over many years of renting holiday homes. The location is quiet and peaceful in a small wooded copse facing a private lake. The boathouse deck is the full width of the property and offers views of the lake and the wildlife visiting it from both the lounge and master bedroom. We enjoyed our morning coffee watching the swans and ducks and in the warmer weather it must be a beautiful place to sit and have a meal or a glass of wine. The property is warm, clean and well equipped with modern appliances,good quality furniture and linens. We felt very at home snuggled in with the log burner on. On a clear night the dark sky is filled with stars, perfect for stargazers. The location is perfect for exploring Northumberland with 2 excellent National trust estates close by (Wallington Hall and Cragside), Kielder forest, Alnwick Castle and the beautiful coastal beaches. The towns of Morpeth and Rothbury are worth a visit both having independent retailers, pubs and tea rooms. We loved staying here and have booked to return next year.

Secluded and peaceful


Tim T,
The Boathouse is the only property on the lakeshore, it is surrounded by trees and is some 70 metres from a quiet access road with ample parking and is ideally secluded - it is private, peaceful and a little islolated. It is excellently furnished and equipped. It has a very good range of clean and usable white goods, crockery & kitchenware (no scratched & black pans here); comfortable & clean chairs, dining table, armchair, sofa and generous double beds with quality bed linen. The TV is quite modern being a Samsung curved OLED & though no satellite, the TV Prime and Netflix apps give additional programme access if you are able to sign in. The lakeside has a balcony for the full width of the house which extends out for the living room area and is a wonderful spot for a morning coffee or an evening tipple whilst watching the swans or geese - beware though as the swans expect to be fed! Overall the house has a lovely quiet, clean and warm atmosphere. I have only one small criticism - the underneath of the beds and sofa were not cleaned & had plenty of dust and dirt, there was even a used pair of socks under one of the beds! However, in the overall context this was a minor detail, as in respect of location, quality and equipment this is one of the best places we have ever stayed in the UK or Ireland.

Not to be missed!


Msteel1163, Lacock, United Kingdom
We have just enjoyed a wonderful week staying at the Boathouse and were delighted with the location and the standard of the accommodation. It was an ideal starting point for trips to many of the sights in Northumberland, both inland and on the coast and, despite the quiet and peaceful location, it was close enough to towns such as Morpeth to avoid being isolated. The beauty of being able to gaze out across the lake and watch swans, ducks and geese (and the occasional otter) only adds to the attraction. Would highly recommend to anyone thinking of spending time exploring Northumberland.

Excellent

The Boathouse was absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Felt very welcomed and the homemade cupcakes were a fab treat! The view of the lake was stunning and our cocker spaniel spent all day in the woods! Had the best holiday ever!

A very special place


Devonal247, Crediton, United Kingdom
The Boathouse is delightful, comfortable and secluded with no near neighbours. Everything we needed was provided and spotlessly clean. Watching swans, tufted ducks and other wildlife through the huge Windows or while eating a meal on the decking was a treat. Lots of places to visit nearby. We plan to return soon and will recommend this to friends who want to stay somewhere special.
