Description

Macey’s Cottage is located in the rural hamlet of Middleton Hall, only 1½ miles south of the welcoming market town of Wooler. This bijou detached cottage for couples is nestled in the grounds of what was once the old pump house and sits in a tranquil, rural spot. The accommodation is conveniently all on one level and its adjacent decked area is a lovely space to relax and enjoy the views.
There are many facilities available within the small friendly town of Wooler (known locally as Glendale; the inspiration for Postman Pat’s Greendale) less than 2 miles north. This is a popular destination for those who enjoy cycling, golf, horse riding and walking – the challenging route of the St Cuthbert’s Way runs close by. The elegant Georgian town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, which straddles the salmon rich River Tweed is 20 miles north. Also 20 miles south east is the cobbled market town of Alnwick. This historic market town is protected by its dramatic castle and offers a wide array of amenities. The Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction from where you can see the Grand Cascade waterfall feature and dine in the restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe! This is England’s borderland and is often referred to as ’the secret kingdom’. The Scottish borders are only 15 miles north. Beach 20 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

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.
