Description

Located in the hamlet of Humbleton near Wooler, on the border of the Northumberland National Park, Homildon is an extremely attractive traditional cottage dating back to the early 1800's. Nestled in a secluded hollow, it provides a sense of isolation while still being within easy reach of local amenities. A bridleway leads from the door into the National Park and the famous St Cuthbert’s Way.
The large rear garden offers a peaceful haven looking out onto historic Homildon Hill. The current owners use the property regularly as a retreat, and have updated the facilities to meet the expectations of today's holiday makers.
