Description from owner

Description

We bought The Longknowe 20 years ago, as an isolated roofless ruin, really little more than a pile of stones inside the Northumberland National Park, but five generations of our family have now been associated with this area and we knew that we would never find anything again in such a great location.

It has taken years of work but today Longknowe is a comfortable, renovated, stone cottage in a magnificent Northumbrian setting. It sits on its own in an isolated valley. It makes a wonderful self catering holiday for summer or winter. It works well as a peaceful retreat for a couple or small family (with a substantial reduction in rental, except in high season) or it can accommodate several generations or 2 families. At all times you have sole occupancy of the site. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with power showers, an AGA, two small sitting rooms, a large farmhouse kitchen and open fires. You can rent 2 or 4 bedrooms. It also has a modern shepherd's wagon with 2 bunks for

It makes a wonderful self catering holiday for summer or winter. It works well as a peaceful retreat for a couple or small family (with a substantial reduction in rental, except in high season) or it can accommodate several generations or 2 families. At all times you have sole occupancy of the site. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with power showers, an AGA, two small sitting rooms, a large farmhouse kitchen and open fires. You can rent 2 or 4 bedrooms. It also has a modern shepherd's wagon with 2 bunks for summer use. Maximum numbers are 10 in summer. It is 7 miles to the nearest shop, 15 miles to the open, sandy beaches of North Northumberland. The Farne Islands are close by. On a clear night the stars shine brilliantly. You can cycle or walk into the hills on public footpaths from the front door. We are happy to accept one dog by prior agreement only.

The house sits on its own, you do not share the site with anyone else while you are there. The nearest neighbours are about a third of a mile away.

The house can be rented in three different ways. You can take all four bedrooms, sleeping up to 8 maximum, and pay the quoted price on the rental rates. You can rent 'half the house', all the public rooms (kitchen and two sitting rooms) plus the queen sized bedroom and the bunk beds, for a substantial reduction at all times, except in high season, when we only rent the whole property. No-one else will share the site with you. Lastly in summer, mid May onwards, you can also rent, for an extra £100 per week, the Shepherd's Wagon. This is in the back field about 30 yards from the house. It has two bunks, electricity and is double glazed, but it doesn't have running water, so it is like comfortable camping, and ideal for teenagers. There is also a renovated barn on site, which is not available for use.
