Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Beautiful newly built stone cottage in the garden of owner's residence. The cottage which sleeps 4 is separated from owner's house by a number of fruit trees and a willow tunnel, to aid privacy. There is 1 double bedroom with King size bed, adjoining the main bathroom, which has wet room style shower and a free standing bathtub. The living and kitchen area are open plan with stairs leading up to a mezzanine floor with 2 single beds and an en-suite shower room. The bannister and balustrade are clear glass to give a good spacious open feeling. We have recently had dedicated BT broadband/wifi installed.The back of the cottage overlooks the attractive village green and the front has pretty uninterrupted views of rolling hills. Situated in a scenic village in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the north Pennines. The cottage is well placed for many fabulous walks, cycle rides from the doorstep and local attractions including the Hadrian's Wall, with Housesteads Fort and Vindolanda only 15 mins away. Our Village Pub has been temporary closed but has now reopened under new ownership serving fine ales and tasty grub. Within a 5 min drive there are several stylish cafes serving locally produced food. The local Allendale brewery is also close by.
If you enjoy walking there is no better countryside than the Allen Dales. There are many wonderful walks starting at the Cottage door, along the river Allen or over fell.

About this location
The Northumberland region
Just over an hours drive will take you to the stunning east coast with its amazing beaches and castles. One in particular is Alnwick Castle, one of the largest inhabited castles and has dominated the town since medieval times. It’s now famous because it doubled for Hogwarts in the Harry potter films. The gardens open from January 21st and have a huge water cascade, the largest tree house in Britain, and even a poison garden. The huge metro shopping centre is less than an hour’s drive, and the city of Newcastle just a little further. The regenerated waterfront has lots of picturesque buildings along with its famous seven bridges, including the unique £22 million millennium tilting bridge. Many family attractions include the Grade 1 listed Theatre Royal which has just been taken back to its Edwardian splendour. The city’s life science centre, which is awash with hands on displays, interactive games and demonstrations. The discovery museum also has lots for children to see and do. ( and it’s free ) Also the great north museum and the Baltic Centre for contemporary art.
The village of Allendale which has 3 pubs, shops and 2 cafes, one being a newly built art centre, is 1 and a half miles away. Allendale is a quaint village and is famous for its Tar barrel Procession and fire on New Years Eve. The garden cottage is a good base to explore the delights of Northumberland. A 25 min drive will take you to Hadrian’s Wall and the Roman ruins at Vindolanda, a key military post on the northern edge of the Roman Empire and one of Europe’s most important archaeological sites. The museum that opened last spring has state –of –the –ark-design and audio visuals.
Less than half an hour’s drive is the Killop Wheel mining centre, another popular children’s attraction. Just 1 hour drive is the stunning Lake District and is a must to visit while in this area. The same driving time will take you to Kielder National Park, the biggest man made reservoir in England, with it’s many attractions. Closer to the Garden Cottage is the lovely market town of Hexham, approximately 15 min. drive. This pretty market town with its beautiful Abbey was voted, just a few years ago as the best place to live in England. It sports good shops/ supermarkets, a leisure centre with 2 pools, play areas and ten pin bowling. Also a variety of eating places- Indian, Chinese, Italian, and also English.
