A lovely stone built cottage in the small village of Powburn, close to the Cheviot hills. The cottage, many years ago a stable has an open fireplace. Great for relaxing by after days out in the national park.

The space

Powburn is at the foot of Northumberland's Cheviot Hills. Our cottage is very near the turn off for Ingram valley. Both country and coast are easily accessible. Numerous castles on the fabulous Northumberland coastal trail frequented by walkers and cyclists are on your doorstep, as well the large cities of Newcastle (50 mins) and Edinburgh (1hr 30mins). It is a fabulous area for walking cycling or exploring by car. Great cycle and walking routes are accessible straight from the front door. The Alnwick castle made famous by Harry Potter is 8 miles away. Alnwick also has a pool and leisure centre. 5 minutes walk takes you to the nearest shop for provisions, there is even an extensive antiques emporium there as featured on the BBC antiques road trip program. Our property was originally used as a stable and was converted many years ago into a 2 bedroomed stone built cottage. It is set back from the main road with a gravelled square to the front of the property. It can accommodate 4 people. The cottage is centrally heated by LPG and has a new combi boiler supplying heating and instant hot water, this is included in the price. There is a comfortable cosy lounge with open fire and 32ins HDMI TV with freeview and a DVD player that also plays video tapes! There is an Initial supply of wood and coal . A small selection of card and board games suitable for all ages are there for your use. There are 2 bedrooms of similar size one with a king size bed and the other has 2 single divans, suitable for children or adults, which can be pushed together to make another large double bed if desired. There is good storage for clothes and suitcases in the bedrooms from inbuilt cupboards.

The accommodation was just as advertised. Easy to meet our host with prompt communication throughout the process. We really enjoyed the area including driving over to the coast and time in Alnwick. Kitchen and bathroom facilities were excellent and the open fire looked great. Nice warm accommodation, lovely bathroom and definitely recommend it.

A lovely cosy cottage with everything you could need for your stay. Matt was a great host and met us on arrival despite our delay in traffic. Perfect place to stay to enjoy the area...the children enjoyed the box of games too and the biscuits on arrival!

Matts place was a neat, cosy cottage in a great spot. It had everything we needed and was very convenient for visiting and exploring the local area which I have to say is beautiful. Matt gave us advice on a great local walk and a couple of other beauty spots we would never have been aware of if he hadn't said. We really enjoyed every moment of our stay there and would be happy to visit again in the future.

A lovely, comfortable cottage in quiet village location. Hosts are welcoming and helpful. A good base for exploring countryside and coast. I would highly recommend it, particularly for a family group.
