Description

Alcedine is in the ideal location for exploring Northumberland, Durham and the borders, where you will find activities for all the family to enjoy.

Alcedine is conveniently located at the gateway to Northumberland and close to Tyne and Wear; two great areas where you will find plenty of activities for all the family to enjoy. Situated just a few miles from the A1, there is quick and easy access to all of Northumberland’s coast and castles. Similarly being just minutes from the A69 and ‘Military Road’ there are a myriad of Roman heritage sites within a short drive. Running through Ponteland village and up over the Scottish Border, (less than an hour’s drive away), the A696 offers a scenic drive over the moors for access to the vast wilderness that is the Northumberland National Park.
Set in the affluent area of Darras Hall, Alcedine offers spacious and thoughtfully furnished accommodation, perfect for all the family. The semi-detached property is set in a tree lined area with private drive and plenty of parking. A large secluded garden to the rear is ideal for relaxing in during the summer months. The dining room with large patio doors offers a lovely sitting area overlooking the garden.
Located one mile from Ponteland village centre, Alcedine is far enough out to be in the countryside but close enough for easy access to a wide selection of local bars, restaurants and shopping. The historic towns of Corbridge and Hexham are close by and half an hour’s drive takes you to the coast where you can visit the Heritage coastline, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s just a short distance from the vibrant city of Newcastle and Gateshead’s Quayside (Tyne and Wear Metro park and ride is just ten minutes away), quite simply the best of all worlds. Newcastle International Airport is five minutes drive away and the Newcastle (North Shields) Ferry Port is just a half hour drive. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    We had fairly high expectations when we booked this cottage and we're pleased to say that Alcedine exceeded them. Little touches such as milk waiting in the fridge upon our arrival, tea, coffee, sugar etc. also in supply and a nice packet of biscuits too, made us feel very welcome. There was everything you could possibly need in the kitchen with all sorts of equipment to hand. The downstairs shower was heavenly with plenty of towels provided. The owners had thoughtfully provided books, games, dvds etc. which proved handy as the weather was not too great when we stayed! The garden was beautiful - shame we could not make the most of it. The owners were not intrusive and had left some helpful literature about local attractions. Overall, we were very pleased with the property and would happily recommend it to others wanting a peaceful break.

    Had a lovely family break in Alcedine. The house is in a lovely area, spacious enough for 6 adults and has a fantastically well-equipped kitchen. Just a short drive to the nearest shops etc. and a great location for 'seeing the sights' - the beautiful Northumberland coast, countryside, and Hadrian's wall. Would definitely return and recommend.
