Delight in unbroken views of grazing sheep, the rugged Cheviots, sunsets and open skies from your cottage garden with stone terraces; the partly castellated 1820s cottage awaits through a gate and up a track in delicious seclusion. Enter through a lovely comfortable garden room (with space to leave your outdoor clothing) and into a light, colourful open-plan living/dining room divided by a roaring wood-burner (logs provided) and with plenty of generous seating in creams and terracotta checks, and books; dull days will be heavenly here with vistas from each window. Extra family or friends can join in comfortably at the large wooden table and cooks will thrive in the uber-sleek kitchen with its double oven, ample preparation space and extra table. A bedroom downstairs is fresh with lemon walls, leafy green fabrics and a warm bathroom with Pecksniff’s goodies. Upstairs: two more bedrooms, one bigger, both beautifully furnished, well-lit and sharing the second bathroom. Young friendly owners Sophie and Jabin are nearby if you need them; you can walk, picnic in the woods, visit marvellous Alnwick. Blissful, tranquil.
