A French door leads from the kitchen to the patio area with table, chairs and BBQ, where you can sit and enjoy the stunning Cheviot hills and open countryside.

Children can safely view the livestock - cattle, sheep, llamas, hens and horses! Little boys will dream of driving massive tractors and machinery and becoming farmers. But why limit the dream to little boys! Little girls can be equally fascinated. They can all safely cycle near the cottages- wind in their hair, sun on their faces and enjoy the freedom .
