We're lucky enough to live in one of Northumberland’s most scenic valleys, in a county renowned for its unspoilt rural and archaeological landscapes, beautiful beaches and unique heritage. Our luxurious self-catering holiday cottages enjoy a peaceful setting in the traditional farming village of Branton, with the magnificent Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park on the doorstep. From purple heather on rolling hills to sweeping sandy beaches along a stunning coast, Northumberland really does offer some of the best walking and touring country in England. Whether you're looking for solitude in beautiful hill country studded with ancient hill forts, or interested in wildlife watching and beachcombing on spectacular seashores, or exploring the turbulent past of this historic border country through the prism of historic castles such as Alnwick, Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh and Warkworth, our self-catering holiday cottages are perfectly situated for all these and more.
Here are just a few of our favourite places, which you can get to quickly and easily by car:
Ingram Valley - 5 minutes
Alnwick Castle and Garden - 15 minutes
Northumbrian coast and beaches - 25 minutes
Cragside (National Trust) - 15 minutes
