Woodpecker Cottage is a stunning transformation from a traditional farm workers cottage into the ideal three-bedroom holiday cottage. The cottage features an open, spacious living area to enjoy, alongside three bedrooms which are furnished with beautiful original pine furniture.

Woodpecker Cottage offers the perfect setting for families, couples and groups of friends and can be booked with the adjacent Skylark cottage with which it shares a suntrap courtyard setting. You can begin your day looking out onto the nearby Kyloe hills, bathed in morning light whilst listening to a stunning chorus of birdsong. The cottage provides the ideal base for exploration and adventure, with a variety of walks from the doorstep. Its location means it is perfectly positioned for the stunning Northumberland coastline, castles and countryside. As evening draws in, enjoy a glass of wine in front of a roaring wood burning stove; a starlit walk along the country lanes or take advantage of the opportunity to toast marshmallows round a campfire in the paddock, or sit on the tree platform and watch the sun go down.

The living room is a lovely, light room in which to relax and escape. See some of our amazing local birdlife visiting the feeders, including the owner’s hens through the garden window. Curl up on the cosy sofas in front of the wood burner and get lost in your favourite book. Sit down together around the dining table overlooking the South facing courtyard. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a dishwasher and full laundry facilities. There are three bedrooms, each with organic percale cotton sheets and a warm down duvet. The man principal bedroom has a handmade bed created from beautiful warm elm wood. The large sash window creates a light spacious room rewarded with open views across our small paddock and woodland. The second room is fitted as a single, again with a handcrafted continental pine bed and the third provides a double room. All bedrooms have beautiful wooden flooring, original doors and pine furniture to create a welcoming atmosphere.

Woodpecker Cottage has a large bathroom with underfloor heating, roll-top bath and walk-in shower. Plenty of hot water is supplied by the biomass boiler. There is also a separate utility room with an additional toilet and hand basin, as well the owners pride themselves on ensuring the cottage is clean, using eco cleaning products throughout. The cottage has its own garden with a seating area, and you could enjoy a campfire in the paddock opposite the cottage. For children there is the opportunity to make dens in the woods, pretend to be knights in the castle on the tree platform and collect their own eggs from the free-range hens. The owners also offer felt making and bread making courses for children and adults as an extra to your holiday experience.

About the local area

Wooler is a small, stone-built town on the edge of the Northumberland National Park and at the foot of the Cheviot Hills. It is one of the main towns along the popular long-distance footpath of St Cuthbert's Way, which runs between Melrose in the Scottish borders and Holy Island.

Situated in the northern part of the county close to the Scottish border, Wooler is an excellent base for a holiday or for exploring the surrounding countryside. With quiet backroads and bridleways in the area is ideal for many activities, including cycling, horse riding, fishing and rock climbing. To the east is the magnificent coastline of Northumberland, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The coast offers spectacular scenery from Bamburgh Castle and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne to Seahouses and the birdwatcher's paradise The Farne Islands.

The town itself has interesting and specialist shops and cafes. There is an abundance of local food, grocery stores and a working pottery studio, making Wooler the leading shopping centre in the area. The rich flora and fauna are held in high regards.

To the North East you'll find the Ford and Etal estates, an area that offers visitors everything from its own steam railway line to Northumberland's only thatched pub. The estate is superb for outdoor enthusiasts and footpaths and bridleways criss-cross the area. Cycle hire is available locally and there are numerous pubs, tearooms and restaurants offering refreshment when you've done your exploring.

Situated to the west of Wooler are the Cheviot Hills marking the border with Scotland. They are the most northerly hills in England and cover some 400 square miles. A large proportion of these predominantly green, rounded hills lie at the heart of the Northumberland National Park. These hills offer a wild and romantic landscape to explore.
