Description

The former College Valley School has been lovingly renovated to accommodate four people. The property is fully central heated and carpeted throughout. Outside there is a private enclosed garden (dog proof) with expansive views up the valley to Cheviot. The cottage has a garage and there is plenty of parking space. Dogs are allowed on the hard floored areas in the house. The College Valley is an exceptional place, a magical hidden gem in today's world, once seen never forgotten; twelve cars are granted permits to use the private road system each day so traffic is unlikely to be a problem. The cottages are literally sitting on the foot of the Cheviot Massif in the National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. At night the only light is from the stars and moon. Northumberland National Park Authority, Kielder Water & Forest Park Development Trust and Kielder Observatory Astronomical Society were awarded the title of Northumberland Dark Sky Park in December 2013, making Northumberland, Europe's largest Dark Sky Park. There are wild goats, deer, peregrine, buzzards, ravens, kestrels and many others. If you are quiet you may be lucky enough to see one of the most charming residents, the red squirrel. This is a perfect spot for all the countryside has to offer; walking, fishing, golfing, riding, cycling, bird-watching, historic houses, gardens, churches and castles or for driving the short distance to the coast where there are beautiful beaches, Holy Island and trips to the Farne Islands. Wooler is 10 miles, the village is friendly and offers a wide range of shops selling locally produced meat, bread and vegetables. There are several good pubs and restaurants in the area, nearest bar/restaurant 8 miles.

Can be booked with code 317 Coldburn Cottage, 344 Dunsdale House and 396 Hethpool Mill.

BOOKINGS CAN START ON ANY DAY OF THE WEEK AND LEAVE ANY DAY WITH A MINIMUM LET OF 3 NIGHTS.

Reviews

This is a large traditional cottage which sleeps six comfortably, one room is a bunk bed. The rooms are spacious, there is a large garden at the rear for kids to stretch their legs. It's a functional well equipped cottage with lovely age about it, some of the floors do squeak but that's character. The hob is a convection device, I found it very good especially with a cracking Ikea none stick frying pan, low heat and no oil did eggs wonderfully. The back door is gorgeous! There is a good pub 50 yards away but not a lot else, if you are coming to this area you really do need a car, there is lots to see but it's spread around. We loved the area, we were lucky with the weather so we got two days at the beach. We had the heating on for water but the radiators off, we like a cooler house and the windows opening, the birds singing in the backyard was lovely. Richard and Judy, Hull - 2nd June 2017
