A peaceful rural retreat, offering self-contained studio accomodation for 2 people. Traditional stone building, fully renovated in 2018, offering light, airy, well-insulated accomodation with central heating and traditional woodstove.

The accomodation has a comfortable standard, futon style double bed with brand new extra thick mattress and ample space for clothes storage, with a full-height single wardrobe and chest of drawers. There are two comfy chairs by the woodstove, as well as a dining table and chairs in the small kitchen area, which includes a 2-ring electric hob, microwave, fridge, sink and cupboards with a good range of cooking pots and utensils, crookery and cutlery etc . There is wi-fi available and a TV set up for dvd use and netflix only, as well as an FM/DAB radio with CD player and bluetooth. Our modern bathroom has a spacious walk-in shower, basin and toilet. Outside, guests are able to enjoy a large patio area with table and chairs and a stunning open view. They are also welcome to sit in the adjoining garden.

The bothy is a smoke-free and pet-free space. We use ecological cleaning and laundry products and offer a choice of feather and synthetic bedding, so this is a low-allergy environment.

Hexham, Northumberland, United Kingdom

The Bothy is in a small hamlet, surrounded by open fields, about 5 miles south of Hexham. There are many stunning walks straight from the door and we are about 20 mins drive from Hadrian's Wall.

The picturesque village of Corbridge and the market town of Hexham are both about 15 mins drive away, offering a range of independent shops, pubs, restaurants and historic buildings (including Hexham Abbey and old Gaol) to explore. The nearest local pub is about a 25 min walk along country lanes. Slaley golf spa is about 10 mins drive away.

I and my partner Katrina very much look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful self contained rural retreat. We aim to provide guests with all they need to have a comfortable and relaxing stay. Whilst being available to offer any support guests may require we are also mindful of the importance of giving our guests privacy. Both Katrina and I have a strong sense of connection to the natural world and feel deeply privileged to live in such a beautiful landscape. I have many years experience working as a herbalist and we are currently developing a large herb garden in front of the Bothy. We are both keen gardeners and jointly run a gardening therapy project nearby for people experiencing mental health difficulties. We also make a range of home-made herbal products which we market as the Heavenly Herb Company. We were both recently ordained as interfaith ministers and are inspired by supporting others to access their own deepest well-being.
