A hidden gem on the edge of Northumberland National Park and centrally located to explore both coast and country, you enter an entirely different world as you approach the pretty hamlet of Alnham nestling in the Cheviot foothills – you begin to relax.
Blacksmith's Cottage has some of the best scenery in Northumberland for you to enjoy at your own pace – a total 'get away from it all' holiday. Take a gentle stroll, a longer hike will take you over the hills into Scotland, or a bike ride – a perfect way to explore this stunning landscape. Step out into a myriad of footpaths and bridleways with sheltered valleys, hidden waterfalls and dramatic hills rich in wildlife and archaeological finds. Alternatively, take the car and enjoy rural Northumberland without hardly passing another car or person, maybe having a break at a tea room suggested in one of the many varied itineraries offered in the cottage.
This wonderful National Park and Heritage Coastline with no dog restrictions is a perfect holiday for guests and their well behaved pets at no extra charge. There is a kennel and run available for guests who prefer a kennel or wish to have a few hours free knowing their pet is well cared for by Sue by prior arrangement. There is a warm water hose, bedding, bowls and towels available if required.
End your exciting day exploring Northumbria and relax in the traditional cedar wood Scandinavian Garden Sauna with Shower fed from the surrounding Cheviot hills - just a stones throw away from your cottage. All bookings include a complimentary Sauna session.
