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.

    We had a lovely time at Birch Cottage. John and Jill are wonderful, friendly hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. They support local businesses and have a range of locally sourced beer, preserves and ice cream for you to try and buy and believe me, it's all top stuff. When we arrived we received a really warm welcome and were given a tour of the cottage. The cottage was toasty and warm as they'd pre-lit the wood burning stove, which was much appreciated. The cottage is just lovely and it instantly felt like home. The views from the bedroom are stunning. There is Wildlife TV for you to tune in to and we were treated to watching visits from the Badger, Fox, Pheasants, Partridges and the Wood Mouse... Be warned though, Wildlife TV is a time waster and you'll find yourself glued to it for hours watching all the antics unfold. All in all we had a great time and will definitely be back.

    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.

    Not happy sharing it with the mice!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We would like to apologise for your mousey experience. Our barn and tawny owls normally do a good job controlling the pesky mice. The owls recently had their quarterly review. This was raised with them. They also send their apologies.

    Lovely cottage, friendly helpful owners. Could have a little more kitchen equipment and larger mugs but that's nit picking. We would definitely stay again.
