On the very border of Northumberland National Park, Homildon Cottage is an attractive traditional cottage dating back to the early 1800s. Sleeping up to eight, it offers seclusion and tranquility while being only 15-20 minutes walk from Wooler.

The cosy heart of this family house is a well-equipped kitchen with a large farmhouse table and cherry red AGA, a perfect place to share a convivial meal or sample the local treats from the welcome basket. A comfy sitting room with vaulted ceiling and vintage wood burning stove offers a welcoming space to stretch out and relax or enjoy time indoors with one of the many board games. There is also a large flat screen TV and internet Blu-Ray DVD. A conservatory doubles as a light, bright and airy second dining space while a study comes equipped with a monitor and fast broadband to work or play. Or simply settle in a comfy chair, read a book and watch the rabbits and birds come and go in the garden!

The house lies out of sight at the end of a short dead-end track – ensuring the only passing ‘traffic’ is the occasional walker or farmer. A large rear garden is a peaceful haven looking out onto historic Humbleton Hill, with a decked dining area seating eight. This and the neighbouring wooded wetland attract a wealth of birds and wildlife to your door. The Northumberland National Park is less than a minute’s walk away with St Cuthbert's Way within 1km. A separate stable provides a multi-games table and lockable leisure gear storage.

The current owners use the property regularly as a retreat, and have updated the facilities to meet the expectations of today's holiday makers. Master bedroom with en-suite shower & toilet, a further double and twin bedrooms, while fourth bedroom is a striking beamed attic room. Newly renovated family bathroom. Third WC off the utility room. Well behaved dogs are welcome.
