The cottage is all double glazed and gas central heating / hot water, gas fire in lounge. Externally the shared rear enclosed garden is half gravelled and half grass with parking for 2 cars, patio set and the use of a gas barbecue. The half walled garden to the front has fabulous views to the south. Linen and fuel included in the rent and beds are made up for your arrival. Free Wi Fi Sorry no pets Set in the heart of Northumberland's rural country side Mordue's is the perfect place to get away from it all and recharge your battery's yet only three and half miles from Thropton away for petrol and 2 eating places The Cross Keys & Three Wheat Heads and five from Rothbury and within easy reach of all the tourist attractions Northumberland has to offer. If you prefer not travel we have several walks which can be done from the cottages where you will see the abundant wild life deer, owls, buzzards sparrow hawks and many species of birds. Bouldering (Callaly) Mountain Biking , Walking (Thrunton Woods, Simon side Cheviots and many more) Cycling (we are a mile away from route 68) In April there may well be lambs to feed or watch a lamb being born. In June/July see the sheep being sheared. Watch Mirk our over enthusiastic young collie learn the tricks of the trade on how to round the sheep up (not always getting it right). See the combine cut the crops and the bailer bale the hay and straw. Feed the free range hens. Our Jack Russell loves to go for walks; Tigger likes a game of football. Historic Market Town of Alnwick 20 minutes drive for Alnwick Gardens and castle, our beautiful coastline 40 minutes drive with an abundance of historic castles to visit, You can Visit Holy Island (when the tide times are right) Take a boat trip from Seahouses out to the Farne Islands. You can also visit the Scottish Borders, buy some cashmere in Hawick. Northumberland has so much to offer!!!!! PLEASE NOTE WE ONLY TAKE SHORT BRAKES WITHIN 2 WEEKS OF THE ARRIVAL DATE IN PEAK SEASON, please message me for prices etc. More

Very comfortable cottage with all necessary amenities. A beautiful setting, and Helen was very welcoming and helpful in recommending local pubs and shops. Any visitor must buy some of her delicious gins.

Tranquility, that's the reason we have returned again and again. That and the welcome that we receive from Helen and Leslie. The cottage is in a wonderfully quiet location with amazing views and is very comfortable. Simonside is framed in the lounge window which overlooks the delightful cottage garden. It is well located for visiting the coast or the hills. We are walkers and have yet to exhaust the range of routes in the Cheviots and the coastal path. Looking forward to our next stay!

Quietly situated about 5 miles from Rothbury and within easy reach of the coast and the dales, this farm cottage is very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. A warm and friendly greeting is always guaranteed from the owner who is on site. We have been many times since our first visit some 5 years ago and will be going back again for the second time later this year.
