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.
