Description

Traditional family cottage with picnic tables in grounds, ideal for exploring the Scottish Borders and Kielder Forest both easily reached.

These charming holiday cottages (refs W43047, W43048, W43199 and W43200) are located close to the country village of Elsdon, nestled within the Northumberland National Park which is an AONB. Picnic tables are scattered amongst the pretty grounds for relaxing, whilst admiring the lovely views. Set in this tranquil, peaceful development, it is an ideal base for walkers, cyclists and touring in the unspoilt surrounding countryside. 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.
Cobweb Cottage (ref W43047), Broomstick Cottage (ref W43048), Piglet Cottage (ref W43199) and Grooms Cottage (ref W43200) can be booked together to accomodate up to 12 guests.

    A cosy well appointed cottage. Over equipped in some ways as I felt that a dishwasher was unnecessary. Very sheltered situation which was good because we were staying when the first two autumn storms blew. A good base for exploring Northumberland and e Scottish Borders. Strange not been able to access the Internet via wifi and the phone signal was also weak, but that is a trade off with a rural location.

    There are other cottages on site but this review is just for Piglet cottage which we occupied for 7 days from 8th September 2018. The owner was only onsite on Saturdays so unable to correct faults. Because of small windows downstairs the atmosphere was claustrophobic in the lounge and you needed lights on when it was overcast, the windows cannot be opened or closed unless you stand on a chair as the sill is so deep. The 2off two seater settees were particularly uncomfortable especially the leather one which had a slippery covering so unable to get comfortable and continuously trying to sit upright as you sliped down. Was unable to sit in them for more than an hour and ended up going to a nice bed to get comfortable. The shower door has dropped due to wear so unable to close it by pulling the door closed. Managed to get the door closed by pushing the right hand side top corner towards the wall. Took 2 days to figure out this solution. The problem is that there is a pivot on a black plastic block in the top right hand corner that needs replacement as it or the receiving piece is worn hence door has dropped. The TV sound card needs replacing as the TV continuously buzzed which spoiled viewing. As the owner was not onsite until Saturdays went without favourite evening programmes. The central heating/hot water boiler is inside the cottage and disturbs the tranquillity of the cottage as the noise level is excessive. Could also hear the next door boiler. The king size bed was very comfortable with more than adequate wardrobe and cupboard space. The upstairs single bedrooms are suitable only for children as adults will hit their head on the steeply sloping roof. Had to exchange a blown light bulb when we arrived but there are no spares available so used one from an area not being used. This lack of attention to detail is not reflected in the cleanliness of the cottage. No towels are supplied so come prepared but the welcome chocolates were well choosen. The cottage is central for the Roman sites,Alnwick and Lindesfarne. Berwick is about 1.5 hours away as is the Beamish museum which is a must see. Corbridge is lovely with a proper bakery/patisserie see Grants bakery website. Also has a wonderful fruit and vegetable shop. The supermarket is Co-op and not worth the visit as choice is poor so stock up else where. Jan Scott

    We enjoyed staying at Piglet Cottage. The cottage was clean and comfortable with everything you need except you need to bring you’re own towels. This is perhaps something the owners could consider for the future. The cottage is ideally located for exploring Northumberland. We recommend visiting the Bird in Bush pub in Elsdon.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Piglet Cottage (and Northumberland in general) and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others. It is clean, comfortable, equipped with everything you would want from a holiday cottage, and the location is superb. Our hosts had left us a box of Matchmakers for our arrival, which was a nice touch. We would definitely return.
