Guests are welcome to wander through the 20 acres of open farmland and woodland which belongs to the farm.
Horse riding and trekking can be found within walking distance of the properties. Elsdon is a quintessential Northumbrian village, a complete example of a medieval settlement in this stunning area which is overlooked by hills on all sides, amidst rolling moors and grasslands. Enjoy the many ways to experience the qualities of the National Park, sample local produce from a farmer’s market, walk in the footsteps of the Romans on a National Trail, climb the crags, cycle the byways or even join in with the music and dancing at a local show. The market town of Rothbury is 13 miles and Otterburn is only 4 miles. The stunning Northumbrian coast and the must-see Hadrian’s Wall is less than an hour’s drive. The Scottish Borders and Kielder Water Forest are around 30 minutes away. Fishing is available at Caistron Lake. Shop and restaurant 3 miles, pub 1 mile.

Advertised as having lovely views the window sills are about 3 feet from floor the walls are extremely deep as you would expect from a farm building but as such seeing out of them is very difficult if a small person,to open a window or draw a blind you have to virtually climb up onto sill to reach handle and blind cord,as for lovely views from property there aren't any unless you want to drive a good way. Beds ok but no pillow protectors on and rugs at bedside death traps they slip as soon as you stand on them. The only door which closes properly is the door to double bedroom although it does scrape across tiled floor making it noisy and hard to open and close.All other doors do not close this includes the shower door. The kitchen was adequate with cutlery plates etc. You have to open oven door to access cutlery draw,oven trays leave a lot to be desired so cover them with foil,the hinged recess to the oven door could not have been cleaned for a very long time the grease and food crumbs are in abundance I was surprised the door actually shut. 2 2 seater settees dated and uncomfortable the television adequate but small and probably early 2010 when purchased.Intergrated fridge with small freezer box extremely dangerous as when opening it it tended to jump out of place almost coming out of space in which it was housed. Advertised as having lovely walks etc nearby forget it my circumstances are that I walk with 2 walking sticks or use motability scooter therefore I assumed there would be local pathways I could use there aren't any. Owners living opposite cottage advised me that they would be there promptly at 3pm for me to collect key at 3.45pm after wandering around I found owner in nearby field who said his wife should have been there but had gone shopping, he had left his phone at home therefore our ringing him was fruitless. All in all a disaster left on Thursday and would probably have gone even earlier but was meeting family members late Tuesday so stayed the extra 2 nights. Have over roughly 15 years have booked cottages all around the country and have never been so disappointed in accommodation will in future do alot more research into dwelling and surrounding areas, have never needed to before but after this catastrophe will be doing just that.

The cottage is in a beautiful location and an excellent base for exploring the Northumberland Nation Park. However the cottage is in need of a ‘makeover’, decor is in need of a refresh and the kitchen area needs updating. The standard of cleaning was poor, something of a worry in these times.
