Description

Nestled in the picturesque small village of Greenhaugh, within the Northumberland National Park, Annie’s Cottage sits at the end of a small terrace and offers beautifully presented self-catering holiday accommodation to an excellent standard.  The lounge boasts a cosy wood-burning stove; idyllic to snuggle in front of and watch the flames dance after a day exploring the stunning surrounding countryside.
A friendly greeting regularly welcomes visitors to Greenhaugh where a good pub serving food is a mere gentle stroll from Annie’s Cottage. Walkers and cyclists can enjoy circular  routes from the cottage door, passing by wildflower meadows and bastles, and the wild and un-spoilt Border Reiver countryside of the Northumberland National Park. Star gazing enthusiasts will revel in the spectacular dark skies which can be viewed from the cottage (even from inside through a skylight), while the award winning Kielder Observatory is within easy reach.  The picture postcard village of Bellingham is only 4.5 miles away and offers many local facilities, including a tourist office and heritage centre with a highly regarded 18-hole, par 70 golf course located on the cusp.  The Woollen Mill at Otterburn is popular with visitors 8 miles east.   Cycling, watersports and ferry trips are only a small sample of the  outdoor activities that can be arranged at Kielder Water – Northern Europe’s largest man-made lake – which is cradled by Kielder Forest Park, nearby.  The historic market town of Hexham, dominated by its majestic abbey offers a wide array of amenities and is well worth a visit.  The World Heritage site of Hadrian’s Wall Country, England’s largest Heritage Site within this most northerly of National Parks, including the visito attractions of Vindolanda and Housesteads, is within easy driving distance.   Annie’s Cottage makes an excellent base to explore the many delights across Northumberland and gives easy access to the Scottish Borders too.

About the local area

Northumberland's western edges contain some of its most spectacular destinations, and the Kielder and Redesdale region is no exception. While the countryside is remote, and all the more beautiful for that, there is a wealth of activities on offer for everyone.

Kielder Water & Forest Park is the site of Northern Europe's largest man-made lake. There are also acres of forest to explore. Purpose-built walking trails create perfect forest walks to see a wide range of rare wildlife including the native red squirrels, deer, otters and badgers.

Dedicated mountain bike tracks including a bike skills area scatter the area. Water sports enthusiasts can take to Kielder Water from Easter to October and the lake offers a great challenge to keen trout anglers between March and October.

However if a relaxing stroll is more your thing, you can strike out on your own and explore Wild Redesdale, a great place just to enjoy nature in its most natural form, following in the footsteps of the Romans while hearing the call of Moorland birds.

Kielder is also an ideally placed for exploring the rest of Northumberland, Cumbria, Hadrian's Wall Country and the Scottish Borders.
