About this property

This cosy retreat is nestled in the heart of scenic countryside, combining the amenities of village life with the unspoiled wilds of the border region, with many famous landmarks nearby.

The cottage is one of four properties built on the site of old colliery yard in Scremerston village. Located in England s famous border region, Northumberland boasts one of the UK s most ancient landscapes, from Neolithic burial mounds to the famous Hadrian s Wall and also encompassing beautiful national parks. Whether cliffs, coastline, hills or forest, there s plenty of perfect wild places for a hike or a pleasant stroll and some of the best long distance walking country in Britain. It s not far across the border to Scotland, with day trips to the borders as far as Edinburgh, a definite possibility for holidaymakers, as well as excursions into the wilds of the Scottish Highlands or the fabulous coastline of the western borders. Out to sea, there are plenty of manmade and natural wonders to explore: Lindisfarne is the main settlement on Holy Island, accessible by causeway at low tide, which is home to a famous abbey that's one of the earliest Christian sites in England. The island itself is a walker's paradise, with excellent bird watching to be had with its resident wading and sea birds, as well as migratory visitors making themselves known at various times of year. The ground floor embraces an open plan design that incorporates a lounge/kitchen/diner. The fully equipped kitchen has an induction hob and electric oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, washer/dryer, dishwasher with a separate dining area with seating for four guests. There are comfortable sofas in the lounge area to relax into at the end of the day. There's also an electric flame effect fire, in a feature fireplace, and a TV/DVD. Completing the ground floor layout is a contemporary style fully tiled, spacious family bathroom with bath, walk in shower cubicle, toilet and handwash basin. Large fully glazed patio doors lead out to the private deck with garden furniture. Upstairs are two comfortable bedrooms in the eaves: one double and one twin, with sloping ceilings / ample head height. Outside, the property includes a generous courtyard and garden with several picnic sites spread over the well manicured grounds and a private decked area for outdoor seating. Of most interest to guests with children, the property features excellent facilities for playing, including a large play paddock and a play area for children, which includes a slide, swings and a trampoline.
