Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Spacious 2 bedroom (both with ensuites) self-contained annexe, attached to main farmhouse, with hot tub for guests’ own use and secluded garden. Fantastic open views of the countryside with ample onsite parking and paddock for playing games. Excellent base for exploring the stunning Northumbrian coast and castles or nearby towns of Alnwick,Amble, Alnmouth or Morpeth.

The space
Owners live next door in the main farmhouse, and are very happy to direct you to interesting places to visit, good restaurants etc and are on hand should you need anything during your stay. However, the guest annexe is private and secluded and we will leave you to enjoy the surroundings in peace.

Bedroom 1
Located on the ground floor with level access to outside and throughout the rest of the ground floor accommodation. It can be set up with a large 6’ superking bed or 2 single beds and has its own large ensuite shower room. The shower tray is low profile for easier access. We have a toilet frame and shower seat available for guests who need them. The shower room and bedroom have sliding pocket doors, helpful for guests who use a wheelchair. One single bed can be removed from the room to allow more space if needed. Please let us know when booking how you would like the room set up.

Bedroom 2
Located on the first floor, with 1 superking 6’ bed and 1 single daybed and is suitable for use as a family room sleeping 2 adults and 1 child, if needed.

Spacious lounge with large sofa and flat screen TV, with Sky and Netflix available for guest use. Level access to outdoor space.

With steam oven, microwave, espresso coffee maker and dishwasher. There is a separate utility area with washer dryer.

Outside, there is a secluded, private garden with hot tub and panoramic views of the countryside looking out toward the coastline.

The property is of an open plan design and is mainly situated on one level, apart from access to the upstairs bedroom. There is level or ramped access to the French windows in the lounge and bedroom. The driveway is predominantly laid to gravel so some assistance may be needed if you use a wheelchair. The patio area is paved on one level and leads directly into the lounge. Please contact us before booking to discuss individual needs and we’ll do our best to help.

Hi, I’m Ailsa. I’ve been a host on Airbnb since August 2019. We are really enjoying being hosts. It was a leap of faith to begin with as we didn’t know what to expect, but we are glad we did! We love meeting new guests, having a natter and getting to know people and share our local knowledge. We always aim to provide a warm welcome and do our best to make sure you feel at home during your stay. We hope you love our county of Northumberland as much as we do and that you’ll come back and stay at our place again and again!

During your stay
We respond quickly to texts or phone calls should guests need anything during their stay. The property adjoins our farmhouse, so we are close at hand if needed, although we tend to give guests privacy to enjoy the place in peace.
