Drive three miles from the main road along the valley floor, then up one of the Upper Coquetdale hills to 1400 feet above sea level. Your semi-detached stone-built cottage is one of two together and is off-grid, with electricity sourced from wind turbines and solar panels and water from a borehole.
Find a living area with wood-burner and endless logs, books and games for rainy days and a barbecue in the garden. Terri and Matthew live on site and will leave you a swish hamper from Tully’s of Rothbury and a bottle of champagne – plus milk, bread, eggs and butter.
Walk for miles, bring your dog, cycle and bird-watch. The nearest pub is four miles away, shops and restaurants are in Rothbury, 14 miles away; the Scottish Borders are nine miles over the hills and wide sandy beaches are near enough for a day at the seaside.
