West Cottage, Southlands Farm

Hexham, Northumberland

In a small row of cottages, a beautiful conversion. It's a brisk walk to a superb pub, or choose a homemade supper from the honesty freezer


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


What were once a byre and granary have been beautifully and sustainably converted into three cottages; this one has a patio off the living area. Enter a lovely, light, inviting space with heated floor tiles, linen furnishings, buttermilk walls, a colourful kilim, a wood-burner for cosiness. A soft-green kitchen at the far end is decked with sparkling new pans, an antique dresser holds pretty china and you eat at a pine table. Delightful hosts Charles and Dee leave you a generous hamper and can deliver a delicious full English or continental breakfast, too; reluctant cooks may choose a home-cooked supper from the honesty freezer. (There’s also a shop on site, selling their own pork and beef.) Immaculate bedrooms have wooden floors, wool blankets and grand views over all that bucolic bliss; bathrooms are white with fabulous showers. Tempting to sunbathe in the orchard on a lovely day but spread your wings and you’ll discover grand castles and beaches. A brisk 20-minute walk brings you to a pub with a foodie reputation, and there are some surprisingly good shops in Hexham and Corbridge. Top-notch!
