Only 6 miles from the pretty market town of Rothbury with friendly tea rooms and pubs, is this charming semi-detached holiday home. Set on the Holystone Estate amongst open countryside, 700 yards from the main farmhouse. This former groundsman’s cottage has been totally renovated and has a charming sun room/dining area to maximise the surrounding view, and a cosy wood burner for those cooler evenings. Overlooking open countryside towards the stunning Northumberland National Park, Squirrel Cottage offers well-presented and attractive accommodation in a tranquil setting. This delightful cottage enjoys a rural aspect situated on a working farm near the friendly hamlet of Sharperton, found nestled within the wild and beautiful Coquet Valley. The picture windows in the sun room enhance the views in this bright, spacious room and the cosy wood burning stove is perfect after a day exploring the countryside that surrounds Squirrel Cottage.
A charming sitting area to the front is a suntrap where you can relax and admire the views. Fly fishing for brown trout, sea trout and salmon for two rods along a private stretch of the River Coquet, can be arranged directly with the owner. Ramblers and cyclists will enjoy discovering the many bridle ways and footpaths which surround the property. The cottage is ideally located to explore the Northumberland National Park and Kielder Forest and Water which is located in the international Dark Sky Park. The picturesque heritage coastline is easily reached and Alnwick Castle is an easy and pretty drive for a day out. Cragside House and gardens is only 6 miles away in Rothbury.
