The cottage is the perfect peaceful hideaway, and yet only a few minutes' walk from the centre of the lovely market town of Hexham.

The kitchen is well equipped and also has a dining area.

There is a downstairs WC.

The sitting room has a real- flame effect gas fire.

The sitting room has a SMART TV and "freesat", so guests can go out and about and catch up with favourite programmes at times to suit themselves , and we also provide access to NETFLIX so there is really no need to pack all those Thomas the Tank dvds to amuse the kids!

One bedroom has "zip'n'link" twin beds, so can provide either twin 3 foot single beds or a super-king 6 foot double,

Further details outdoors

The Sele Park is 10 metres from the cottage, with views of the Hexham Abbey and the Tyne Valley and lots of space to walk, play with the children or just relax in a beautiful setting.
