Sitting in the beautiful rolling farmland of the Till Valley on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, No. 9 is an ideal place to escape busy schedules and enjoy a tranquil break in a glorious setting. Light, bright and perfectly positioned, the cottage has been immaculately renovated throughout and is an idyllic spot for families or friends to rest, relax or take a leisurely break walking, cycling or exploring the great outdoors.
The pretty interior is tastefully presented using a restful mix of heritage colours and neutral furnishings in a contemporary cottage style. The charming sitting room enjoys lots of natural light and features a toasty log burner for evenings in or chilly days, while two double sofas provide a snug area to unwind with a good book.
There is a dining area for four guests and the kitchen comes well-equipped for holiday living. The cottage has two comfortable double bedrooms accented by pretty cushions and throws - one with zip and link beds which can be configured as a superking or twin as desired.
The cottage sits at the end of a row of fine sandstone cottages tucked away on the peaceful surroundings of Crookham Eastfield Farm, with a pretty lawned garden to the front of the property which is ideal for sunny al-fresco dining in the warmer months.
The accommodation sits on one level and therefore may be suitable for guests with restricted mobility.
