Comfortable stone farmhouse in magnificent upland setting

Located in: Mindrum
The Longknowe was a complete ruin when the current owners bought it 20 years ago. After a long association with Northumberland, they knew this was a once in a lifetime opportunity because of its location.

They have renovated it completely, effectively building a new house inside the old walls. It is now a comfortable, warm stone cottage in a magnificent Northumbrian setting. It sits on its own in an isolated valley. It makes a wonderful self-catering holiday for summer or winter. It works well as a peaceful retreat for a couple or small family (with a substantial reduction in rental, except in high season) or it was built with the idea of being able to accommodate several generations or 2 families. At all times, however, much or little of the house you book, you have sole occupancy of the site.

Longknowe has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with power showers, a large farmhouse kitchen with an AGA, two small sitting rooms, with folding doors so that it can be made into one room, with open fires. You can rent 2 (Queen sized room with bunks rooms) or 4 bedrooms (plus a double bedroom and a twin room). It also has a modern shepherd's wagon with 2 bunks for summer use. Maximum numbers are 10 in summer (plus babies in cots) and 8 in winter. There is an enclosed paddock that surrounds the house for your use. Longknowe is 7 miles to the nearest shop, 15 miles to the open, sandy beaches of North Northumberland. The Farne Islands are close by. On a clear night the stars shine brilliantly. You can cycle or walk into the hills, on the public footpaths and byways from the front door. We are happy to accept one dog by prior agreement only

The house sits on its own, you do not share the site with anyone else while you are there. The nearest neighbours are about a third of a mile away. The house can be rented in three different ways. You can take all four bedrooms, sleeping up to 8 maximum, and pay the quoted price on the rental rates. You can rent 'half the house', all the public rooms (kitchen and two sitting rooms) plus the queen sized bedroom and the bunk beds, for a substantial reduction at all times, except in high season. No-one else will share the site with you. Lastly in summer, mid-May onwards, you can also rent for an extra £100 per week the Shepherd's Wagon. This is in the backfield. It has two bunks, electricity and is double glazed, but it doesn't have running water, so it is like comfortable camping, and ideal for teenagers. There is also a renovated barn on site, which is not available for use.
