Description

This wonderfully appointed country cottage rests on the outskirts of the pretty village of Chatton, tucked between the picturesque National Park and the breath-taking coastline of Northumberland.
Flossy’s House promises a heart-warming stay for a family or couple looking to get away from it all and spend some time within an area of tranquillity but close enough to all amenities. Step into this characterful dwelling, offering everything you will need during your stay. Look forward to sinking into the 2 sofas with a well-deserved beverage in this charming, spacious living room boasting a wonderful blend of contemporary styling and traditional features to offer an idyllic space to spend your evenings relaxing in front of the Inglenook fireplace with elevated views overlooking the Kyloe Hills.
The dedicated chef will delight in this modern country cottage style kitchen with quality appliances on offer to help you prepare a hearty Northumbrian meal for the whole family to enjoy. Don’t fancy cooking? A short stroll will bring you to the local pub which serves a superb dining menu and a welcoming atmosphere to complement. Head upstairs where there are two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a king-size bedroom and a charming twin bedroom, each promising a delightful space to wake up to each morning. Refresh in the downstairs bathroom and take advantage of the large rainfall shower ahead of another exciting day.
Head outside to the shared cobbled patio area and enjoy a BBQ or some al fresco dining whilst capturing some pleasant sunsets. Head into Chatton; a gorgeous country village nestled in the pretty Northumbrian Valley, bordered by the Cheviots. The village has a great pub, recently renovated and it serves hearty Northumbrian dishes in a hunting-lodge inspired interior. The village store and Chatton art gallery compliment the quaint village atmosphere and the village green planted with pretty shrubs in the summer. Keen walkers are sure to be impressed by St Cuthberts Way, a 100-kilometre long-distance trail between the Scottish Borders town of Melrose and Lindisfarne off the coast of Northumberland, named after a 7th-century saint. The nearby town of Wooler is set along the last leg of the journey, so you needn’t traverse the full length. Wooler itself is just under 4 miles away and features a good range of shops, pubs, restaurants and facilities such as a post office and chemist.
If you fancy something exciting, why not visit Chillingham Castle just over 2 miles from Flossy’s House and book onto one of their ghost tours! Why not try something a little different? Discover your inner country-self and try clay pigeon shooting at Fowberry Moor Farm in Wooler, where they also offer wine tasting too! A short 20 minute drive brings you to the popular village of Bamburgh! Bamburgh is a stunningly attractive small village set on the Northern stretch of the Northumberland Coast. It is without doubt dominated by its magnificently striking castle that can be seen for miles around, giving the whole village a somewhat dramatic feeling.
Why not hit the waves yourself with a trip to the Farne Islands? Take a boat trip from Seahouses and see the medieval Pele Tower and Victorian Lighthouse, as well as the famous seabird colony. Depending on the time of year, you might catch a glimpse of the friendly seals and puffins that visit the islands’ shores. Golfers flock to Bamburgh, where the Bamburgh Castle Golf Club offers a particularly picturesque round. It’s short but tough and boasts some of the best views in the country!
Flossy’s House can be booked together with Farmside cottage (UK35018) to accommodate up to 8 guests.

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.
