Winnowshill is located close to Derwent Reservoir, set within the beautiful Pennine valley near to the Durham and Northumberland border. The reservoir is 3.5 miles in length with a thousand acres of clean and open water, which is devoted to wind surfing and sailing with five generous slipways for easy launch. Golfing enthusiasts will delight in the ample choice of several prestigious courses close by, one being the superior De Vere Slaley Hall. Ramblers and cyclists will enjoy exploring the heather moorlands with rugged uplands which include some of the highest, wildest and most beautiful scenery in the country. Hamsterley Forest provides miles of lovely forest walks leading to High Force; England’s largest waterfall. The historic market town of Hexham, dominated by its majestic abbey offers an abundance of amenities only 15 miles and the pretty village of Corbridge renowned for its specialist shops and quaint tea rooms is 12 miles. Bowes Museum, Raby Castle, Beamish Museum, Vindolanda, the Roman Site at Corstopitum and Housesteads Roman Fort Museum are all interesting historic attractions within easy driving distance. The vibrant city of Newcastle, well-known for its global, cultural pursuits and the extensive shopping facilities at the world renowned Gateshead Metro Centre, along with the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, the Baltic Centre and the Sage Gateshead music venue are only 20 miles east, ensuring The Derwent provides a peaceful retreat in an excellent central location for discovering the best of Northumberland, County Durham and Cumbria.

The cottage was cosy and comfortable and we really enjoyed using it as a base. We did have to drive everywhere as the cottage is in a remote location with local amenities further away.

Accommodation very good. Would have preferred accessible walking routes from the property away from the road

Good holiday cottage - the location is fairly remote and the nearby lake isn’t easy to access, but it’s very clean and well appointed, and the kitchen is great.
