This idyllic cottage, situated in a wonderful location, close to a working farm and stunning scenery, traditional and cosy everything you could want to unwind and relax.

The cottage, close to the border with Scotland, has magnificent uninterrupted views across farmland and the Northumberland National Park. Watch gliders soar over the Cheviots. Take a short drive to the lovely market towns of Wooler and Kelso offering restaurants and local activities to include golf courses and a race course in Kelso. The Cheviot Hills offer outstanding walking, the vistas are breath-taking and provide a delightful ‘get away from it all’ activity. A great destination to enjoy cycling, gliding, golf, and walking. Holy Island and Bamburgh Castle are about a 45 minute drive away and Alnwick Castle famous for the Harry Potter films and its spectacular gardens are also close by.  Edinburgh is about an hour and a half drive away from the property.

Venture through the front door into the entrance hall, kick off those boots and hang up your coats, head off to your left and you will find a cosy lounge where you can relax in front of the lovely wood burner and plan where you are going to explore the following day. Enjoy a meal together at the dining table or simply take a seat and admire the view. Leading off the lounge is the kitchen with electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and microwave.  The washing machine and a further freezer is located in the out-house just yards from the front door.  Venture back through to the hallway and you will find two beautifully furnished bedrooms one with a king size bed and one with twin beds, views onto the garden and grazing horses in the adjacent paddocks. Also, off the hallway is the bathroom with a shower over the bath, basin and WC.

Heading outside from the sitting room and to the rear, you will find a pretty enclosed garden with a lawn, flower borders and a table and chairs to enjoy al fresco dining with something delicious cooked on the charcoal BBQ. You may find a friendly pony or donkey wandering over to say hello. To the side of the cottage there is a gravelled area to park up to three cars, wood store and a bike storage area.

Excellent dog walks across fields leading you to the river.

This is a beautiful holiday cottage. Clean, comfortable, private and very sympathetically furnished. The generous and thoughtful welcome basket was such a nice start to our stay. We rented e-bikes from Kelso which was a wonderful way to explore the local area with only a little effort required. This is a place to slow down in, reflect and restore.

We enjoyed some chill time at this cottage. Very peaceful and comfortable. The lounge was cosy and warm. The bedrooms were beautiful and bedding was very snuggly. We'd definitely recommend the Gamekeepers Cottage. Ideal for chill time and also for walkers. The animals were friendly too. A really relaxing time was had by us all.
