Opening status: Soft/partially open
Our COVID-19 measures:
We reopen to guests 21/8/20. In addition to a comprehensive risk assessment, guest info & updated cleaning procedures/PPE etc, we've increased the time before cleaner enters cottage after guests have left to 24 hours for bookings already in place & to 72 hours for new bookings until March 2021. This is safer for cleaner & for our guests as the longer time before cleaning and guests means that Covid19 will more likely have not survived, even before extensive cleaning schedule as per PHE/govt guidance. As a doctor myself I have ensured that guidance adheres to available scientific guidance.

About the area

Discover Northumberland

If it’s history you’re after, there’s heaps of it in Northumberland. On Hadrian’s Wall you can imagine scarlet-cloaked Roman legionaries keeping watch for painted Pictish warriors while cursing the English weather and dreaming of home. Desolate battlefield sites and hulking fortresses such as Alnwick, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Warkworth are reminders that this, until not so very long ago, was a contested border region. The ruins of Lindisfarne bear witness to the region’s early Christian history.

Northumberland also has some of Britain’s best beaches. On summer days, and even in winter, you’ll see surfers and other brave souls making the most of the coast. Inland, there are some great walks and bike rides in the dales of the Cheviot Hills and the Simonsides – just hilly enough to be interesting, without being brutally steep. There's dramatic scenery in the High Pennines, where waterfalls plunge into deep valleys, and there are swathes of heather-scented moorland. Northumberland National Park covers over 400 square miles of moorland and valleys with clear streams and pretty, stone-built villages. It’s just the place for wildlife watching too. You’ll find flocks of puffins, guillemots and other seabirds around the Farne Islands, and seals and dolphins offshore.
