The Smithy Cottage
1 bedroom, sleeps 2
Weekly holiday lettings and short breaks off-peak minimum. of 3 nights.
A perfect holiday cottage for a couple has been created from an original farm smithy in Wooler, Northumberland. Awarded 5 stars by Visit England, The Smithy nestles in the Glendale Valley at the edge of the National park. Positioned 16 miles from both Berwick Upon Tweed and Alnwick, both fantastic for shopping and history, and just a half hour from Northumberland's beautiful Heritage coastline, this luxury cottage is in the grounds of the working farm where the owners live. Walking, fishing, riding or cycling are all on the doorstep of this fabulous holiday home. There is also a tennis court on site for guests' use, and opportunities for trout and salmon fishing in the river that runs through the farm.
There are two other larger cottages available in the same location, sleeping 4 and 8 (10) respectively.
The cottage is perfectly placed for exploring Northumberland - the mystical holy island of Lindisfarne, Bamburgh Castle, The Farne Islands and the Scottish Borders are within easy reach. Northumberland has some of the most unspoilt and under populated landscape in England - where mountains, sandy beaches and hidden coves are all within a short drive.
There are beautiful walks from the doorstep of the cottage - with an abundance of marked routes including Linhope Spout and Routin Linn, or a walk in the Cheviot Hills where you'll hardly see another soul.
St Cuthbert's Way also passes close to the cottages.
If two wheels is more your thing, the Pennine Cycleway goes by the cottage, making this the ideal cottage for a pit stop. Bike hire is available locally, and can be arranged by the owners.
The area boasts some fantastic marine wildlife - the Farne Islands, off the coast of Seahouses, make ideal diving for all levels - tuition is available.
This is the ideal cottage from which to escape into the wilderness - if you're looking for a holiday cottage for a large group on a special occasion why not rent 2 or 3 cottages togethe
