Holiday Cottage Description
This stone built former shepherds house has been lovingly and tastefully renovated. Outside there is a walled and fenced garden and two buildings, one with a deep freeze and ample storage for bicycles should you wish to take advantage of the quiet private roads, the other houses the washing machine and tumble dryer and a large raised sleeping platform for dogs in a separate kennel area. Dogs are allowed downstairs in the house only. The property is fully central heated and carpeted throughout. The cottage has a garage and amble car parking space. College Valley is a private estate, there are four letting houses, a YHA youth hostel and a well equipped Community Hall which is licensed for weddings and other functions. It is possible to book the whole Valley for events. Wooler is host to the Glendale Show, held on Bank Holiday Monday at the end of August. This agricultural show is popular with both locals and holidaymakers; it celebrates many aspects of rural and farming life, and provides a fun day out for all ages. The Heritage coast is just 20 miles. Grouse shooting and stalking by arrangement. If you would like to bring your horse with you, it can be arranged or take a ride from nearby Kimmerston Riding Centre across the sands to Holy Island. Bike Hire available nearby. Although there is no television reception within the College Valley, DVD’s can be watched on the televisions provided in the cottages. All the properties let all year and are available to start your holiday on any day of the week, the only specification being a minimum letting of three nights. Due to the remoteness of some of the houses it is occasionally impossible to get safe access in deep snow, in this case a refund will be given or an alternative date offered. Coldburn is a popular cottage which regularly gets booked up. Have a look at our blog on the cottage (read more button on this page) and look through the testimonials.
