Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Stoney Law is a newly upgraded property set in fantastic open countryside. This generously sized, detached cottage has four bedrooms and can accommodate up to 6/7 guests. It offers delightful and spacious holiday accommodation and would be just perfect for larger families or for the gathering of friends. A lovely feature of Stoney Law, which will certainly appeal to guests, is the light-filled conservatory. This enjoys a soothing outlook over the mature gardens and is the perfect spot to enjoy that early morning coffee or late evening glass of chilled wine. Whilst enjoying a picture-perfect rural location away from other properties, Stoney Law is only 1.5 miles from Catton Village and just 3 miles from the small but bustling town of Allendale. Essential amenities are therefore relatively close to hand should guests have the need to drag themselves away from this delectable holiday property.

Northern England region
The northerly county of Northumberland is a hidden gem of totally unspoilt countryside and wonderful long stretches of pristine sandy beaches. If you want to stretch your legs and breathe in clean country air this is the place for you, with miles of wide open spaces and magnificent views. The county has three distinct sub regions; a coastline stretching some forty miles with quiet sandy beaches and pretty coastal harbour villages. Inland visitors will find dramatic rolling moorland and forests, much of which is National Park and to the south of the region is the famous Hadrian's Wall which runs coast to coast and is now a World Heritage Site. Apart from Northumberland's natural assets the county is steeped in history and has had a turbulent past which is characterised by more than its fair share of castles and ancient hill forts, some of which were built to repel Viking invaders. It was also the scene of the border wars and conflicts between the English and Scots in the 14th-16th century.
New visitors to this gorgeous region of Northumberland and further west are generally taken aback at the scenic beauty of the largely untouched landscape. The area has a ‘wilderness' feel to it and as one might expect, the quality of walking and cycling available at numerous venues is superb. Highly recommended is a visit to Alston, located only 13 miles away and at 1300 feet above sea level, England's highest settlement! Alston is the boarding point for the South Tyne Railway- a delightful way to explore the beautiful countryside, which is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Outdoor enthusiasts and bird- watchers should visit the mighty Kielder Reservoir. The former because of the wide range of activities available at Kielder water which include sailing, fishing, kite-surfing, walking and mountain-biking. The former because it offers the chance to view Ospreys, one of our rarest birds of prey, in their natural habitat and which are currently nesting at the site. The visitor facilities at Kielder are first class and there's even a night-sky observatory open to the public located nearby! The delightful market town of Hexham is only fourteen miles away and this has a superb range of amenities including several large supermarkets, leisure centre, award-winning cinema and theatre centre, good selection of food and drink outlets and specialist shops. Highly recommended is a visit to the remains of Hexham Abbey. This enjoys a riverside location and is steeped in history. West Northumberland is ‘Roman' country and an amazing array of roman remains can be viewed at several sites located nearby such as Housesteads Roman Fort, Vindolanda and the former Roman settlement at Corstopitum. Of course the ‘jewel in the crown' is the remaining sections of the Roman Wall, officially designated as a World Heritage Site, which can be inspected at a number of viewpoints in the county.
