Nestled at the edge of a magical and beautiful private lake The Boathouse has been converted to a very high standard. A haven for wildlife and the perfect base for your holiday in Northumberland you are in an area very popular with walkers and cyclists. The cottage is in a peaceful and secluded location with only the wildlife and the occasional fisherman to disturb you. With superb historic places such as Wallington Hall, Belsay Hall, Cragside or Alnwick Castle and gardens all within easy reach. The famous, wild and beautiful Northumberland coastline is also within a 40 minute drive, so who could ask for more?

A haven for wildlife and the perfect base for your holiday in Northumberland you are in an area very popular with walkers and cyclists. The cottage is in a peaceful and secluded location with only the wildlife and the occasional fisherman to disturb you. With superb historic places such as Wallington Hall, Belsay Hall, Cragside or Alnwick Castle and gardens all within easy reach. The famous, wild and beautiful Northumberland coastline is also within a 40 minute drive, so who could ask for more? Imagine yourself sitting in front of the roaring log burning stove on those cooler evenings and looking out at the lake through the magnificent picture windows that truly bring the outside into your living room. Or sitting on the glass fronted balcony watching the wildlife while you sip a glass of wine and watch the beautiful sunsets across the water. The cottage itself has two spacious double bedrooms each with its own en suite shower/bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped with all you could want for your holiday. Two nearby pubs will welcome you and for more sophisticated dining you are only a few miles from the lovely market towns of Morpeth or Rothbury or from Ponteland. For those wanting a busier day or evening out Newcastle or the Metro Centre at Gateshead are readily accessible with shops, restaurants, cinemas and theatres. It may be possible to arrange some fishing on the well stocked lake if you want to give it a try – get in touch and we’ll see what we can arrange for you. If you are interested in bringing your horse on holiday with you get in touch and we can help you to put together a bespoke holiday package. Pets will be allowed at the owner’s discretion as she needs to be confident that the wildlife won’t be disturbed by their presence. We truly look forward to welcoming you to The Boathouse. If you would like to bring a horse with you on holiday give us a call - we can arrange that at the owner's yard, just a short drive from the Boathouse. More

About the neighbourhood
The area is very rural and the property is close to great local places to visit, for example Wallington Hall is close by as is Belsay Hall, Cragside Hall, Kirkharle Courtyard and Visitor Centre, Bolam Lake and much more. You are about 10 miles from the bustling market town of Morpeth and Rothbury, with its wonderful selection of niche shops, cafes and pubs is also nearby. If you want to visit Newcastle it is only about a 40 minute drive away, as is the Metro Centre.
Getting around
