The College Valley runs north from the top of Cheviot, the renovated old mill is at Hethpool across the College Burn. This stone cottage provides exceptional accommodation in which to relax and enjoy the solitude and exhilarating sense of freedom found in the valley, which is a sanctuary for wildlife and home to a great variety of flora. Starting from next to the cottage the Harrow Bog is the largest semi natural ancient woodland in the Northumberland National Park. Walkers who seek unspoilt and natural landscape with spectacular scenery need look no further. There are four challenging circular Hillfort Trails in the College Valley - Hethas Hike, Ring Chesters Round, Four Forts Foray and the River and Ramparts Ramble and many other walks of varying difficulty or you can just wander down to the stream. Close to Hethpool Lake. Hethpool Mill has grown more and more popular each year.

Wonderful cottage in beautiful surroundings. Well worth the money.Mrs Brenda Plant - 2nd September 2019
As usual, so welcoming when we arrived (thanks to all concerned). Saw wild goats, adders, slowworms, curlews, heard cuckoo, larks, lapwings, deer. Bees providing constant background hum. So good to listen to the soundscape.
We came looking for peace and tranquillity and certainly found it in an all too short stay. Lets hope the next time is longer. Thank you.
