Enjoy the tranquility of a peaceful rural location in a pleasant village nestled in the heart of scenic Northumberland. We are within reach of Hadrian's Wall, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, and sit adjacent to the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park. We are two minutes from National Cycle Route 10 and offer secure storage for bikes. Regretfully we do not accept pets. Continental breakfast provided. Please note - there is a step in the shower room and another into the dressing area.
Rose Cottage Barn was converted in 2016 and includes an ensuite shower room and a sitting area. It is very peaceful and enjoys views over the garden and beyond. The Barn is connected to the main cottage where we have lived for the last three years.
Guests have a separate, private access to their bedroom and en suite shower room in the barn annexe, via a boot room which adjoins the main house. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the barn and a mini fridge and toaster in the boot room; breakfast is provided on a continental 'help yourself' basis. There is a pulley 'Sheila Maid' airer in the boot room to dry clothes. Guests have their own private seating area in the garden with a bench, table and chairs for sitting outside to enjoy the view and of course the amazing dark sky!
Interaction with guests
I live at Rose Cottage and work from home. I or my husband, Tony, will usually be able to welcome guests personally depending on their time of arrival, but we are just as happy for guests to arrange to collect the key and let themselves in. I am very happy to advise guests on anything that will help them have an enjoyable stay. We can offer a complementary collection and delivery service from Hadrian's Wall by prior arrangement for 'Wall Walkers' and those without their own transport .
Other things to note
We are on a rural, slow speed, rather than an urban super high speed broadband connection and mobile reception can be erratic at times. The perfect excuse for being out of contact whilst you relax!
Although the curlews have now returned to the coast after their nesting season the skylarks are still in full voice and the swallows and martins are swooping in acrobatic displays. We have great spotted woodpeckers feeding their young in the garden.
The harebells, scabious and knapweed are in full bloom now in the verges - a beautiful sight!
- Please leave outdoor footwear in the boot room
