Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


This property is just 70 yards from the local pub, and is nestled in the unspoilt countryside, with idyllic views towards the National Park.

Built in 1840 as the local village schoolhouse, this charming and quirky end-terrace holiday home is set in peaceful unspoilt countryside along the A68. With great views towards Northumberland National Park and Hadrian’s Wall Country, it’s the perfect base for exploring what is said to be England’s friendliest county. The cottage retains its original character, including features such as an inglenook fireplace with multi-fuel burner and additional electric heaters in all rooms. At the end of a day’s sight-seeing, you can settle down on cooler evenings in front of the TV and roaring log fire to plan your next trip out. The Old Schoolhouse is only an hour’s drive from the coast and in easy reach of many famous attractions, including historic Cragside, Alnwick Castle, Hexham Abbey and Kielder Water & Forest Park. Kielder is a popular destination with walkers, cyclists, water sports enthusiasts or fishermen, and its International Dark Skies Observatory is a must for star-gazers. There are two dog-friendly pubs nearby offering good food and ale, and Bellingham is just 6 miles away, with further amenities including a post office, bank, local shops, tea rooms and restaurants. Nearest shop and restaurant 2 miles, pub 70 yards.
