Blackpool Farm Cottage
4 bedrooms, sleeps 8
There are plenty of attractions within easy reach of this cottage, including Alnwick Castle, Cragside House and a Dark Sky National Park. This detached, comfortable and spacious holiday home is set on the edge of the owner’s working farm within lovely countryside, yet is within easy reach of the A697. The property has beautiful views and walks from the doorstep over to the village of Longhorsley. A lovely restaurant can be found within a mile. This large cottage has two wood burners, one in the living room and one in the kitchen/dining room, so ideal for cosy nights in. The small village of Longhorsely has a village shop and pub and is only 2 miles away.
This is a great location from which to explore the many visitor attractions within easy driving distance. Alnwick Castle, featured in the Harry Potter films, is only 14½ miles away and is a great day out for all ages, Rothbury, 8 miles, has a pretty riverside and a nice selection of pubs and cafés, as well as the National Trust’s Cragside House. Druridge Bay is only 14 miles away, and Otterburn is 22 miles, where you can travel onto the acclaimed Dark Sky National Park, perhaps visiting Kielder.
The pretty and historic town of Morpeth, 9 miles, has plenty of pubs and shops, as well as a swimming pool and rowing boat hire on the river. Trains can be taken, if you wish to leave your car behind, into Newcastle or Edinburgh from Morpeth for great days out. The Heritage Coast can easily be reached from here, where there are miles of unspoilt beaches peppered with castles. Blackpool Farm Cottage is great location for exploring the whole of this diverse and unspoilt county. Beach 13 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.
