From the Dragons Den there are lovely walks for miles along bridle paths and public footpaths along the banks of the Hart Burn. Visitors will delight in exploring the seven acres area of rural woodland, designated of ‘Great Landscape Value’ and plays host to a rich and varied wildlife including red squirrels and otters to the rear of the cottage. The woodland lies over millstone grit, which outcrops as precipitous cliffs in parts, curving along the side of the river Hart Burn. At the curve of the river is a deep pool known as the Baker’s Chest, reputed to have been used to hide silver and valuables during Viking Raids. Discover the magical cave locally known as The Grotto and take time to search for the chest full of lost treasure at the bottom of the Cobblers Pool! Visitors will enjoy experiencing the grandeur of Wallington Hall; a National Trust property with a farm shop and walled garden only 4 miles west and Belsay Hall is also well worth a visit. A special attraction near Cambo and a must for keen gardeners is the lovingly tendered Herterton Garden as featured on Gardeners World and in Country Life magazine. There a wide array of amenities in Morpeth, 7 miles east and the picturesque village of Rothbury, found nestled at the foot of the Simonside and Lordenshaw hills is known locally as ‘The Gateway to the Northumberland National Park’ only 13 miles North. Other interesting attractions close by are the English Heritage site at Brinkburn Priory and the National Trust 1,000 acres estate property at Cragside. The World Heritage Site at Hadrian’s Wall within the most Northerly National Park is a mere half hour drive west. The bustling market town of Alnwick, dominated by its majestic castle is home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy!) and offers many facilities within an hour’s drive, including a cinema / playhouse and a wide array of inns, shops and restaurants. The Alnwick Garden is popular with tourists; it includes a Grand Cascade waterfall, a Poison garden and a restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe. Or take a trip to the vibrant city of Newcastle and the extensive shopping facilities at the world renowned Gateshead Metro Centre only 20 miles south.

It was a lovely location, very peaceful with plenty of wildlife in the area. We saw 2 deer on the road not far from the cottage which was beautiful.
The new owners were very nice and helpful. The cottage was lovely and we felt at home their for our first family holiday. The local information was excellent, he even showed us in his car where the nearest fish and chip shop was!
