No wonder Geordies are generally happy – they’ve got this lot on their doorstep: unbroken views of green fields, sheep and clumps of woodland, open skies, the Cheviots, white and long sandy beaches, frothy green sea, mysterious old castles. Your timber-framed space with cedar cladding is light and airy with a gigantic picture window in the open-plan sitting room; sit warmly and safely by the wood-burning stove in winter and the moody weather will put on a show.
This is a great place for a group of friends – the kitchen is sociable and you’ll find wine, fruit, cakes, a local newspaper and fresh flowers waiting for you as well as some basics. Bedrooms are large and light and all have their own doors to a decked area of the garden.
Spill outside on sunny days, set up the barbecue in the evening and become part of the view.
