The Bothy at Ivy Cottage, is a beautiful, centuries-old stone Shepherd’s Hut, situated in the hamlet of Red Path just a short drive to the popular town of Halthwhistle, with its busy train station and local buses connecting the town, and the area, to Newcastle and Carlisle. The Bothy is surrounded by dramatic countryside, woodlands and magnificent views as far as the eye can see, and sandwiched between The Kielder Forest, Northumberland National Park and the North Pennines AONB. ...The Bothy at Ivy Cottage, is a beautiful, centuries-old stone Shepherd’s Hut, situated in the hamlet of Red Path just a short drive to the popular town of Halthwhistle, with its busy train station and local buses connecting the town, and the area, to Newcastle and Carlisle.

Interaction with guests
We were first introduced to ‘Ivy Cottage’ the main house, when our daughter-in-law persuaded us to take part in the BBC programme 'I Escaped to the Country' in 2017 and House No 2, stole our hearts. We knew immediately that this was a special place to start the next phase of our life and that the ‘Bothy’ would make a wonderful Holiday Let for visitors from all over the world to this wild, beautiful and extraordinary county. We look forward to introducing you to all that Northumberland has to offer from coast to countryside - and to make your stay as comfortable and as enjoyable as we can, so that you'll want to return again and again.

Wake up each morning to Fearga's fabulous breakfasts, and retire each evening in comfort, and the tranquillity of the wonderful Northumbrian countryside. Wonderful location to discover the history and culture of this ancient landscape. We will certainly return.

Brilliant hospitality in stunning surroundings! The unique Bothy has to be experienced to be truly appreciated. Had the best night’s sleep for ages in the wonderfully comfortable bed and the breakfast the following morning rounded off a memorable stay. We will be back!
