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.

As others have said, this rental is top quality rental and incredible value. Gill & Neil have built and furnished this lodge to the highest standards of comfort, warmth, fittings and fixtures. You want for nothing. From everything needed in the kitchen (including microwave containers, tinfoil and cling film, heaps of cooking utensils and pans, lovely quirky crockery, a wide range of cleaning cloths and fluids) to the Porcelanosa bathroom with Tisserand body wash and moisturiser, the fluffiest White Company towels and bedrobes. The comfy bed had the rarest of treats in holiday rentals (or hotels); a flat sheet under the duvet, and pillow & mattress liners. Even a pillow spray to help sleep. There is a large south facing terrace but if you can drag yourself away, Hexham is only 10 mins drive and the huge range of tourist options in this area are easily reachable. As for eating out, spoilt for choice around the Lodge and within Hexham itself. Speaking of which, Gill welcomed us with a fantastic hamper of treats - fresh scones, jam, butter, shortbread and chocolate. Also vases of garden flowers. Gill and Neil are attentive yet totally unobtrusive hosts, and Bill, their dog, is beyond delightful. We could have spent the fortnight just reading and watching the sheep (and new lamb) in the field below us had we not had to explore the area with a view to moving there in the near future. We are thrilled that this will mean we must book to stay again!

Once again we visited our favourite place to stay Woodside Lodge. This really is a little haven from the stresses of life. Gill and Neil have created a five star oasis. It is immaculately clean, equipped with everything we could need and very well maintained. We were fortunate to have warm weather in February on our last visit and often sat with the bifold doors open, admiring the new lake/pond and local wildlife. Gill and Neil are very helpful and offer suggestions when requested but are also sensitive to allow us to enjoy the privacy of the lodge. Gill is amazing, as she always accommodates my special needs (I am chemical and perfume sensitive). We never used to holiday in the same place more than once ...until we found Woodside Lodge! I can not recommend this self catering accommodation highly enough and we are already looking forward to our next visit.

Perfect country retreat

The 3rd time we have been here and we have booked again for September! Lovely conversion with everything you could want. Great scones on arrival! Gill and Neil make you most welcome. Great to get away from noise of town life.

Perfect getaway in a beautiful, peaceful setting with wonderful hosts

Anita N,
Woodside Lodge is a perfect getaway for anyone looking for a peaceful stay in a beautiful setting surrounded by woodlands and fields filled with wildlife. There are barn owls that regularly visit the field next to the Lodge, Gill and Neil have recently established a large wildlife pond, and there are deer in the woods nearby. Gill and Neil are wonderful hosts who can give you lots of ideas for your stay, where to visit, walk, good pubs nearby - and Gill makes the most heavenly cakes too! The lodge itself has everything you could need and more - the very large walk in shower is bliss after a day spent exploring! I've stayed twice now, it's even more peaceful in winter time and there's still lots of wildlife to see and places to visit. I'd highly recommend staying at Woodside Lodge and have passed on a link to Woodside Lodge's website to a number of friends. Thank you Gill and Neil for a perfect stay as always.

Top rate accommodation with fantastic attention to detail. We received a very warm welcome from Gil the hostess who showed us round the excellent accommodation. It is beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The view from the bifold doors was beautifully uplifting, we saw daffodils and hyacinths and sheep and rabbits and ducks on the pond; it was so relaxing. The surrounding area is also wonderful to drive around with lots of attractions to visit. We would certainly recommend it 😊
