Description

Situated only a mile from Hadrian’s Wall and enjoying spectacular uninterrupted open views across the wild and wonderful Northumbrian countryside nestles The Horseshoe; a charming self-catering cottage in a beautiful rural setting. Forming part of an idyllic complex of four other holiday cottages, the accommodation within The Horseshoe is conveniently placed all on ground floor level. The property is well presented throughout. The full length glass doors in the lounge enhance its bright and airy ambience and drinks in the simply stunning vistas. The private patio is the idyllic spot to dine alfresco and watch the sun sink. Every effort has been made to ensure these delightful cottages offer eco-friendly accommodation. Dogs are particularly welcome to The Horseshoe; a wild grass meadow has been designed with your pet in mind.  Enjoy a morning scamper through the field opposite The Horseshoe or an evening stroll and listen to the call of the curlew soaring high above. The Horseshoe boasts an elevated position in the very heart of ‘Hadrian’s Wall Country, set within England’s largest Heritage site - the most northerly of National Parks. 
The Horseshoe can be booked independently or together with Tackroom Cottage (CC334059), Stable Cottage (CC334060), Granary Cottage (CC334061) and The Farmhouse (CC334080) to accommodate the gathering of family and friends.
