Sleeps 6


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. The kitchen is off here so whoever is cooking won’t feel left out – they’ll also find clean lines, cream cupboards and plenty of equipment. Bedrooms are all on the same floor and there shouldn’t be a quarrel over who has which – they’re all lovely and all big and all have their own super bathroom and door to a decked area of the garden. The building, in isolation at the top of a rugged drive, is next to an older house (also rented as a holiday home) but cleverly designed so you can’t see it – the feel is still private. Underfloor heating keeps you warm in the most cutting weather, spill outside on sunny days and become part of the view.

Its a very special place. All you hear is birdsong, the wind, nature. There's no light pollution. If you want to relax, read and walk... It's the perfect place.

Albert, Cotswolds

Have had a lovely week - weather has been kind and have managed lots of super walks. Fantastic views of the countryside - have thoroughly enjoyed watching the sheep


A great weeks holiday, weather superb. Thank you for arranging that! Loved the sheep and pheasants.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Lydia Achard

  • Northumberland offers wild coastline, a string of sandy beaches, historic castles and forts, secret surf spots, chocolate box cottages and quaint harbour towns combined with dynamic mountain range scenery that will take your breath away.
  • Head to the picturesque seaside village of Alnmouth to discover bijou galleries hidden down cobbled streets. Don’t miss the renowned Art Festival in the summer which showcases over 70 artists, live music, street food and children’s workshops.
  • Enjoy a boat trip to the Farne Islands, one of the best spots to see a wide range of sea birds in the British Isles. It's the biggest Grey Seal sanctuary in England and one can find Puffins more plentiful here in season than almost anywhere else in the UK.
  • Saddle up and enjoy country hacks near the banks of the nearby River Till to galloping in the heather on the moors overlooking the Cheviot Hills and cantering along the white beaches of Holy Island with one of the friendly local riding schools.
  • Northumberland has more castles than any other county in England. Many of these castles, including Warkworth, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Lindisfarne, stand guard along our dramatic coast.
  • With more than 30 miles of beaches, a galapagos of islands, hidden coves and designated areas of outstanding natural beauty. Head over to Beadnell beach, a hub of activity where you can enjoy windsurfing, waterskiing, coasteering, canoeing and sailing.

The estate has been family owned for many years; it's run by Lydia, who also manages a local shoot. She worked for Scott Dunn in London for several years before moving back up here with her young family, so she knows exactly how to look after people and to organise the holiday they want. She will meet and greet - unless you prefer to let yourselves in.
