Beautifully presented romantic cottage with a gorgeous garden and seating area, ideal for visiting the countryside and coast. Perfect for a couple or two friends using both bedrooms.

This pretty property for two provides a wonderful get away from it all, where you can completely relax and wind down. Spend time in the beautiful garden or sitting under the covered seating area with your favourite drink and in the evenings cosy up together in front of the wood burner. Days out can include The Alnwick Gardens and Castle and the traditional market town of Rothbury at the foot of the Simonside Hills and home of beautiful Cragside. From there, venture into the Northumberland National Park for fabulous walking and scenery and you can easily head to Wooler for the Cheviot Hills and on to the Scottish Borders. Head East for the beaches at Alnmouth, Embleton and Bamburgh with so many more between.

Access to the cottage is down the garden path with many shrubs and plants either side to guide you to the door. You will come into the open-plan kitchen/diner, bright and airy with dual aspect windows and is equipped for making your meals in with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine. You can enjoy your meals together sitting at the dining table. The cosy lounge has comfortable furniture and a warming wood burner, which will help you wind down and relax while you catch up with a film or two on Smart TV. Heading up the stairs the charming master bedroom has a king-size bed and plenty of space for your things. There is also the twin bedroom so you can chose which room you want to use. Take a restorative bubble bath after your days out exploring and there is a hand held shower attachment to help with washing your hair and a WC.

Outside, the garden beckons with a patio set for two and a superb covered seating area in the corner where you can enjoy the views. Parking is off-road and private inside the gate. Please note this property has a private water supply.

The cottage was in very good order and clean when we arrived. A decent supply of wood for the stove was provided. We found the heavy duvet too hot, but this was easily rectified by using other blankets provided. Its location was convenient for travelling to the nearby towns of Rothbury and Alnwick, but was isolated despite being by a main road. ThiRead mores suited us fine, but may not suit everyone. As it was wet and windy much of the time (we stayed over Christmas) we didn't use the outdoor seating. Hide

This was our 3rd visit to Clematis Cottage. It is ideal for our needs being located within driving distance of all of the attractions Northumberland has to offer. The cottage garden is a real gem and great to sit out at the end of the day. There is some road noise but not a real problem. Would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family.

Absolutely fabulous holiday in Northumberland. The cottage is fantastic, very well equipped and quirky and a perfect base for exploring this wonderful county. The garden is amazing, really tranquil with a gazebo allowing us to sit outside despite some poor weather. We will definitely be visiting again

Idyllic little cottage. Small, but very comfortable and in a perfect location for visiting the many sites of interest Northumberland has to offer. We were a little concerned about some reviews mentioning road noise, but surprisingly for us (we live in a quiet rural village ourselves) it caused us no bother at all. The only downside I can think of iRead mores the very slow broadband. At less than 1Mbps, use of the internet is very restricted. Hide

Enchanting cottage furnished with stylish decor many items from a time gone by. Fantastic summer house in a stunning cottage garden frequented by many birds. Quiet setting even though it is just off a main road which makes the many attractions in the area very accessible. Possibly the best National Trust property in the area only 4 miles away. 5 StRead morear. Hide

This cottage is very well placed for touring Northumberland. It is very well equipped and spotlessly kept. The garden is idyllic, including a comfortable sheltered zone to sit and enjoy the planting and the afternoon/evening sunshine. Bird life abounds. Plenty of information is provided by its thoughtful owner. Parking is private and convenient.

The cottage was very well equipped and the beds were beautifully comfortable. As it was October the duvets were very warm and the bed linen was clean and crisp. We used the log burner every night, which gave heat and a lovely warm glow. Even though the cottage was situated on a crossroads, we never really noticed the traffic noise. We were well basRead moreed to visit many of the Castles, especially Chillingham , which was not well publicized, but a fantastic find. Had a lovely week here. Sure to return. Hide
