Holiday Cottage Description
This romantic cottage sits in one of the most beautiful locations in the foothills of the Cheviots, surrounded by totally unspoilt scenery and an abundance of wildlife. College Valley is a private estate running north from Cheviot. 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. The peace and tranquillity of the College Valley is unsurpassed. Access to the area is restricted and there is little to spoil the enjoyment of what must be the quietest place in Northumberland. Visitors can walk out in every direction and spend a day in the hills with the knowledge that every comfort awaits their return. This is truly an idyllic hideaway, accessed by a private single track road, the nearest habitation being some distance away. Wooler is 11 miles. The coast 20 miles. Riding and bike hire nearby. Stalking and horse livery by arrangement. 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. Can be booked with codes 396 Hethpool Mill, 344 Dunsdale House & 489 School House.
