House | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 5
This beautiful country estate offers the perfect 'home-away-from-home' in England's most rural county. Each pretty cottage and private garden is out of sight of any other property. Close to Northumberland's Heritage coast, these secluded cottages have been renovated throughout to provide cosy interiors with wood-burning stoves - perfect for warm winter breaks.
Farm Cottage boasts its own gin-gang, a circular outbuilding once used as a mule-driven mill. The charming Stable Cottage, draped by a copper beech, was once the coachman's home. Over the bridge lies Garden Cottage set inside the old walled garden. These three cottages are located in a tranquil pocket of beautiful rolling countryside, under vast skies where the sun rises over beaches and sets onto the moorland of the Cheviots. An ideal country retreat, just 3 miles from sparkling white sandy beaches and close to Northumberland's magnificent castles. Charlton Hall's ancient parkland makes for perfect scenic walks. Guests can stroll along the Shippton Burn, which runs under stone bridges, filling the trout lake before meandering to the sea. They can also explore woodland bursting with bluebells and wild flowers in spring and summer; and see nesting buzzards, roe deer, foxes, badgers, hares and weasels – all abundant here due to careful environmental management. A cross country course takes guests who wish to bring their horses through woods and fields. The nearby beaches are also excellent for riding and dog walking.
Additionally, West Lodge is a single-storey cottage nestling behind beautiful stone pillars at the entrance to the estate, screened by mature woodland and handily placed for touring just 100 yards from the single-carriageway A1. Local attractions include Holy Island, the Farne Islands, historic Berwick-upon-Tweed, Alnwick Castle and Garden, the Heritage coastline and castles. Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Edinburgh are just 1 hour by train.
Guests arriving by air met at Newcastle Airport (40 minutes by road) by arrangement. Shops 6 miles.
