Homildon Cottage is beautiful, a traditional and much loved holiday
home on the fringe of the National Park with direct access onto a
bridleway and St Cuthbert’s Way. This child and dog friendly property
is very well equipped with four bedrooms accommodating eight guests.
Interiors are beautiful - the kitchen has an Aga, there’s a vintage
wood burning stove in the sitting room and the sunny conservatory
/dining room is perfect for chatting with a glass of wine over dinner.
Step outside and lose yourself in the delightful garden - a lovely spot
for breakfast with views to Homildon Hill.
The cottage is in a secluded spot, but not isolated, the village
amenities are a short walk away in Wooler. A bridleway leads from the
door into the National Park and the famous St Cuthbert's Way.
This is a designated Dark Sky Park where the only night light is from
the moon and stars. Wildlife is excellent too, look out for wild goats,
deer, peregrine, red grouse, ring ouzel, buzzards, ravens, kestrels and
red squirrel. Fishing, golfing, riding available nearby. Visit historic
houses, gardens, churches and castles or head off to the coast - a
short drive away and stroll along the beautiful beaches.
