Transport links are close by, Morpeth, 5 miles away has a main line train station for links to Newcastle or Edinburgh or further afield. There is a local bus stop a short walk away. Newcastle International Airport is only 15 miles away.
The immediate local area includes some great river fishing and some of the best cycle routes in Northumberland. There is a great local park for the children nearby, and for the dogs a popular riverside walk just minutes from the front door leading through the Wansbeck Riverside Park. Northumberland is also host to some fantastic golf courses all within close proximity.
The Northumberland coast, some of Britain's best, is within walking distance along the riverside path of the Wansbeck. With Bamburgh and Seahouses to the North and South Shields and Whitley Bay to the south you won't know which way to go.
With Morpeth only 5 miles away and the likes of Rothbury, Alnwick and Hexham a short drive you will be spoilt for choice for days out.
So come and visit, you won't be disappointed. Breathtaking scenery, splendid coastlines, historical stories at every turn.
Northumberland has a magical coastline and some of the most remarkable views and walks that the UK has to offer. Local attractions include the World Heritage site of Hadrians Wall, the Castle and award winning gardens at Alnwick, (famous now for Harry Potter) the castles of Bamburgh, Warkworth and Dunstanburgh, the Woodhorn mining museum and Holy Island of Lindisfarne.
Theses historic sites have more recently been used in the film and T.V Industry with the likes of Vera, Downton Abbey, and of course Harry Potter and Transformers.

Very happy with the accommodation. We were a party of 5 (3 adults, 2 children) but felt very comfortable. Fresh milk in the fridge, bottles of water and cereals on the side and lots of fresh towels - all very appreciated.
Would stay again and highly recommend
Great location, beautiful property with great surroundings. Had a fantastic time and would highly recommend.
Great hosts. Lovely location
Only stayed for two nights. Wish it had been longer. Already planning our next visit.
Extremely comfortable & spacious.
Kitchen had all you needed. Good to know if you are staying for longer than 2 nights
I especially liked the other touches such as the lovely fresh white roses & the breakfast & drinks hamper & biscuits.

Very nice; we loved it!
We loved this house and wished we could've stayed longer than 2 days. Our family of 5 fit comfortably, the kids loved the PlayStation and games. There's a playground right across the bridge that they loved too. The bed in the master room could've been bigger and newer but otherwise everything was great! Our hosts were very nice and had a jug of milk and breakfast items waiting for us. That was greatly appreciated! We also loved the fresh vase of roses on our dining table. They definitely went above and beyond. Thank you! :)
Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The bed, a standard double, in the master bedroom is in keeping with the character of the house and the furniture, part of a matching set. But with a brand new mattress.
Thank you again
Ian & Anita.
