From the owner

Stonecrop is a much loved country cottage with a beautiful garden and small orchard in a stunning part of rural Northumberland. Many of our guests return year on year.

It is within easy reach of Hadrian’s Wall whilst being secluded, and surrounded by wonderful walks, woods and fells. There is direct access from the garden, across our adjoining field to the South Tyne river, where guests are welcome to wander and explore and enjoy the peace and quiet, the bird life and the natural beauty.

The Cottage is a listed, stone built property, dating back to 1760. It retains much of its original charm and character. The cosy lounge has a log stove in an inglenook fireplace, and the light and attractive kitchen is cosy warm with underfloor heating. There is a small cloakroom with separate WC, and adjoining utility area downstairs with a study and sofabed.

Upstairs there are two comfortable double bedrooms and a single room with bunk beds. The bathroom is well equipped. The Cottage has good wifi.

The attractive gardens surround the Cottage on three sides and include a large rear garden (with sand pit) together with an established orchard - all of which are wonderfully private. From the garden, there are lovely and uninterrupted views across the valley and onto the fells above.

The property is idyllically situated in the quiet hamlet of Eals, which is a cluster of about a dozen houses, situated along a no-through road. The South Tyne river runs alongside and forms the perfect backdrop. The valley is heavily wooded with lovely, unspoilt countryside all around.

The valley is a haven for birds including curlews, oyster-catchers, cuckoos and snipe. The birds on the various feeders in the garden are also very special with regular visitors including siskin, woodpecker and mistlethrush. At night you will often hear owls and herons. The night skies are as good as anywhere in the Country.

There are super walks from the doorstep in all directions including along part of the Pennine Way, and also along a now disused section of the former Haltwhistle to Alston railway - which makes for an excellent trail or cycleway.

You can take the popular South Tynedale narrow gauge railway line from its Alston terminus to Slaggyford - only 2 miles from the Cottage.

Stonecrop is located within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and is conveniently close to Hadrian's Wall and the Northumberland National Park. It is also within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales, the Scottish Borders and the English Lakes. Ullswater, for example, is about a 40 minute drive away.

The house has been the much loved holiday home of the present owners for the past 60 years. If you are looking to escape the madding crowds then Stonecrop really does provide the ideal retreat for children and adults alike.

We are happy for you to bring a dog (max 2) providing they are well behaved. For further information about the Cottage go to our own website - search for Stonecrop, Northumberland. Ours is the whitewashed one.

We also rent out a lovely garden flat in the centre of Edinburgh - please contact us if you're interested or look online on this site at property 9283937.
