These two delightful holiday cottages (Refs MRA and MRB), each with its own history, are tastefully converted from former barns dating back to the 1600s. Retaining character and charm, they lie in a peaceful setting overlooking countryside with many cycle tracks nearby. Ideal walking and fishing country, yet close to famous attractions - visitors can step back in time at the Beamish Open Air Museum or visit the Metro Centre (a shopper’s paradise), Hexham (with its glorious abbey), Durham City (a city of contrasts, with its fine cathedral and designer shops), or the Northumberland coast, which are all within an hour’s drive. The medieval castle of Raby has a 200-acre deer park and is a firm favourite with visitors. An ideal location to explore all the surrounding AONB. Shop 500 yards.

A lovely, very spacious cottage in a great situation. The cottage is very well equipped and we have had two thoroughly enjoyable holidays there.

We had such a great time at this cottage. It is a great base for exploring the area - (Beamish, Diggerland, Lightwater Valley, Bamburgh, Alnwick Castle, Seahouses, South Shields and the Life Centre in Newcastle). Cottage was exceptionally clean and the host was so helpful and kind. We hope to return.
