A private nature reserve is the highlight of this traditional stone cottage nestling under the hills in a tranquil corner of the Northumberland National Park. The reserve - immediately opposite - is rich with wildlife including rare red squirrels, swathes of wild flowers, trees and a sun-dappled stream. The cottage is surrounded by spectacular unspoilt scenery, yet is only 7 miles from Rothbury where all services are available. Walk straight from the door into wild "open access" land with heather moorland, woods, rough pasture and rivers: find the woodland waterfall and prehistoric archaeological sites, admire stunning views from the hill-tops. Stroll to a 17th Century fortified house, or take a short drive to waymarked trails and a medieval well. Come back to a log fire and watch the window bird table which attracts numerous species. Central location offers easy access to Alnwick Castle and Gardens, National Trust properties, Hadrian's Wall, Kielder Water, the coast and Scottish Borders.
