GARDENERS COTTAGE, BURNFOOT HOLIDAY COTTAGES, NORTHUMBERLAND
Brand new in 2022, Gardeners Cottage is a luxury self-catering holiday cottage on the edge of Northumberland National Park, near Alnwick, Cragside, Hadrian’s Wall and Rothbury, as well as Bamburgh, Craster and Seahouses on Northumberland’s Heritage Coast.
Tucked away in the south-west corner of Burnfoot, next to The Hideaway, this two-storey holiday cottage has south-facing views over a burn where kingfishers, egrets, deer and otters are regularly spotted. An ideal base for family holidays in Northumberland.
Large open plan living and dining room with stunning views south through stone mullioned windows and a large, glazed door. The sitting area features vintage leather chesterfield sofas, a traditional stone inglenook fireplace, contemporary Danish wood burning stove, flat-screen television with Freeview, DVD player, and shelves of good books.
The kitchen area features an impressive oak dining table, and an exceptionally well-equipped kitchen with integrated stainless steel hob, oven and chimney hood, dishwasher, washing machine, free standing fridge freezer and microwave oven. There is direct access from the kitchen to the fully enclosed south-facing garden.
Accessed from the living area is a large storage cupboard for boots and coats. Alongside is a door leading to ground floor bedroom with double bed and oak furniture, with a large east-facing window for morning sun. Next door is a shower room with a large shower enclosure, basin and wc.
Accessed from the other side of the sitting room are stairs to the first floor.
Bright landing lit by a conservation rooflight.
To the right of the landing is a light airy bedroom in the eaves with a king size bed and single bed. It has a fitted wardrobe and oak furniture – with conservation roof lights granting lovely views of the burn and meadows beyond.
To the left of the landing is a compact shower room with basin and wc, and beyond that is an L-shaped twin bedroom in the eaves with two single beds, oak furniture and windows to three sides allowing superb valley views.
Some rooflights are above beds so you can lie back and star gaze in complete comfort (we’re in Europe’s largest dark sky park) but you can rest assured you won’t be woken early in the morning as all bedrooms have flush fitting blackout blinds in rooflights, and blackout curtains where there are windows. All beds have pocket-sprung mattresses and Egyptian cotton sheets.
Free Wi-Fi is available throughout this cottage for use with your own smart phone, tablet or laptop; and there is a travel cot, high chair and stair gate.
To the side, Gardeners Cottage has two reserved car parking spaces directly outside the entrance.
Accessed directly from the living area is a south-facing fully enclosed garden with a terrace and furniture – the perfect place to enjoy the beautiful valley views, with sunshine throughout the day and into the evening.
