Wooler House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 5. 2 bedroom 1 bathroom

My stone cottage is 10 minutes walk from the Cheviot National Park, and on the St Cuthbert's Way long distance footpath. In a large village it is close to the high street with a post office, 2 banks, a supermarket and several pubs and restaurants. Handy for touring the Scottish Borders as well as the Northumberland coast and Roman wall attractions.

The house itself has two bedrooms with a double bed in each, and a folding single bed in the bigger room. The kitchen boasts a new gas boiler for central heating, new fridges and gas cooker, and is fully equipped for self-catering. A gas fire in the living room boosts the heating in colder weather. The back garden is quiet, with views over the hills and there is off road parking. Plenty of guidebooks and maps await the explorer, whether on foot or in car, with TV to catch up with news and entertainment back at base.

Sheets and towels are provided, and the key person, who lives locally, can be contacted for further needs and information, and if bread and milk are needed on arrival.

Wooler is real walking country, and you can walk the Northern Cheviots on some days without meeting another human being, although, as my son has pointed out, the sheep more than make up for this! The Berwickshire coastal path is a jewel, with dramatic cliffs at St Abbs Head, and romantic Fast Castle, and another longdistance path is the Border Abbeys way, taking in Kelso, Jedburgh and Dryburgh.

For the historian and archaeologist, Northumberland shows vivid and tangible signs of the pre-historic, and then the Celtic, Roman and Anglo-Saxon imprints on its soil.The Border wars, with Flodden and the Border Reivers, immortalised in prose and poem of Walter Scott, are a further story to explore. Scott's home at Abbotsford, Scotland,a 30 mile drive, has to be seen, but so has Alnwick Castle, only 16 miles away, home to the Duke of Northumberland, and once home of Harry Hotspur, of Henry the IV Shakespearian fame. And Cragside, 19th Century stately home of Lord Armstrong, founder of Armstrongs shipyards, the first large house to run on hydro-electricity only 20 miles away, is an excellent rainy day visit. Holy Island is even nearer, at only 15 miles, with a tidal crossing to make it a dramatic visit.

Bird and nature lovers are catered for with walks and excursions organised locally. I have seen plenty of red squirrels here, but am still hoping for sight of otters, which require an early start!

The Cheviot Centre, housing the Tourist Office, organises many walks and outings, as well as promoting local business and industry.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The house has a real character to it and is perfectly situated in Wooler. It proved an excellent base for walking and running in the Cheviots, and is just a short walk from the common.

The owner was always very helpful and easily contactable. A place we are sure to return.

UNA CASA TRANQUILLA ED INCANTEVOLE

  • 5 of 5

Volendo visitare la regione del Northumberland e la città di Edimburgo abbiamo scelto questa sistemazione e non ce ne siamo affatto pentiti. Abbiamo visitato tutta la zona che va dalla contea di Durham, Newcastle upon Tyne, fino ad Edimburgo passando per la costa e le campagne.

Si trova a circa 25 km da "The Holy Island of Lindisfarne" ed "Alnwick Castle", luoghi degni di nota da non perdere.

L' appartamento è composto da due ingressi (fronte e retro), soggiorno, cucina e stanzino al piano terra, due camere da letto matrimoniali ed un bagno al primo piano.

La casa si trova a pochi metri dal centro del paese, da tutte le attività commerciali della zona e ai margini del Northumberland National Park.

Non dispone di connessione wi fi gratuita ma è possibile acquistare il pass di accesso a pagamento tramite la connessione disponibile in loco "BT Wi-fi with Fon", basta accedere al sito e scegliere il tipo di pagamento in base ai giorni di utilizzo, un' ottima soluzione veloce ed efficente.

Una location consigliatissima ed una sistemazione di ottima qualità.

Se sarà possibile ci torneremo senza alcun dubbio.
