Relax amid spectacular and dramatic scenery in this gloriously unspoilt part of Northumberland. Lying within the Northumberland National Park and enjoying panoramic views over Whitelee Fell National Nature Reserve, the cottages are former shepherd’s cottages on the owner’s sheep farm, renovated to a very good standard and retaining lots of character. Oak (ref 16498) and Birch (ref 15841) have beamed living room ceilings and all three have inglenook fireplaces with multi-fuel stoves for a warm and cosy atmosphere as well as power showers in the bathroom. There are wildlife cameras which feed live pictures direct to the flatscreen TV in each cottage, so you can watch barn owls, badgers and other wildlife. The area is rich in wildlife and ideal for walkers. Whitelee Farm is an idyllic base for exploring the Roman wall, Lindisfarne, Alnwick Castle, Kielder Forest Park and the Scottish borders. Newcastle and Edinburgh are within an easy drive. Shopping in Otterburn and Jedburgh, both 15 minutes away. NB: 15841, 16498 and 80119 are in close proximity to each other and can be booked together to accommodate up to 13 people.

    A very warm welcome from the owners John and Jill set us up for a very enjoyable stay. The location was absolutely stunning and central for many places but quiet just as we like it. CCTV showing the wildlife is a bonus for wildlife fans and is a good selling point as we have not experienced this in other cottages we have visited previously. The cottage was very comfortable and surprisingly bigger than we expected. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Birch Cottage.

    Warm welcome by the owners John and Jill. Upon arrival all the rooms were cozy and warm. There was tea and coffee, milk in the fridge and a nice bottle of wine. Felt really welcome. Extra bonus is the wildlife webcam, we saw owls and 6 badgers on our the tv. Will definitely book again.

    A comfortable cottage in a lovely rural setting. The owners were most friendly, helpful, and informative. One small niggle: we would sometimes run out of hot water during the daytime if, say, running a bath. Otherwise we had an excellent holiday in every respect.

    Very comfortable cottage, peaceful surroundings and great scenery. Added bonus were the external cameras which captured the local wild life - badgers, foxes and barn owls being the star attractions! Jill and John (the owners) were great hosts, very warm and welcoming. Will definitely be going back.

    A lovely cottage in an excellent location containing everything you would need for a relaxing holiday. Stunning views and walks from the property with the added bonus of wildlife cameras showing images via the TV. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly, they really do go that extra mile.
