The picturesque hamlet of Kilham enjoys a tranquil and peaceful setting and is surrounded by stunning open countryside. This small cluster of cottages was originally designated for farm labourers and Black Bull Cottage has been recently refurbished with a complete makeover to now offer self catering holiday accommodation to an excellent standard. This cottage is deceptively spacious courtesy of a newly built but sympathetic L shaped extension and gives a wonderful blend of character and charm with all modern amenities desired for contemporary living. With the added convenience of being all on ground floor level, Black Bull Cottage is particularly well equipped with youngsters in mind. The fully enclosed garden is a haven for children to play. The large sitting room has exposed beams and a cosy multi fuel stove nestles within an inglenook fireplace. There is also a pot bellied stove in the kitchen for extreme weather conditions or power cuts and the kitchen and both bathrooms are heated by electric under floor heating with additional electric heaters in all other rooms.
On the fringe of the Northumberland National Park, Kilham is situated 7 miles NW of the friendly market town of Wooler and 12 miles SE of the delightful cobbled Border town of Kelso. This is a truly remarkable setting. Surrounded by miles of rolling hills and open countryside yet easily accessible too, Black Bull Cottage is set in a unique location of North Northumberland yet only a handful of miles from the border into Scotland.
Black Bull Cottage offers the quintessential country retreat surrounded by breathtaking rural scenery and offers an excellent base to explore both North Northumberland and the Scottish Borders too.
Attached to Angus Cottage (CC323023); both can be booked independently or together to accommodate the gathering of family and friends.
