This newly refurbished cottage is a perfect base for a weeks holiday in Northumberland/ Scottish Borders. Also very well equipped for a rainy week with a dedicated games room / lounge area. The cottage has been converted from an old building so has high ceilings and lovely sash windows. Quiet village and friendly people. Really helpful owner.
