You will be happy here, deep in the rural bliss of Northumberland with its bleating sheep and spectacular views. The Smarts look after you beautifully in their elegant Georgian farmhouse surrounded by a charming garden and on the edge of the village. You have your own comfortable sitting room with open fire, and delicious meals are taken in the handsome dining room; do stay in for dinner – local lobster, fish or game perhaps? Margaret is an accomplished cook. Sleep soundly in your view-filled bedroom under a proper eiderdown and savour the total peace. Hadrian’s Wall is near, and the Lakes close enough for a bracing day out.
