Church Cottage was originally built in the mid 1800s as two cottages, at a time when the village had thriving trades with four working farms, a post office and general store, a nursery garden and a butchers. Now in a conservation area, the village is residential, but it still retains its charm and character, with a vibrant and friendly community of all ages.
This is an ideal holiday let for small families, couples, or friends to relax and explore the Northumbrian countryside near Hadrian’s Wall. Church Cottage is comfortable and homely, with exposed beams, an original stone feature wall and a wood burner. Tastefully renovated in a cottage style, with ample seating in the lounge, comfortable beds for up to four guests and Smart TV with Netflix, and free WiFi.
Situated next to St. George’s Parish Church and overlooking the Village Green, the cottage has an attractive outlook. A second Green with play park and space for children to play is only a “stone’s throw” away.
Parking is available for up to two cars outside the cottage – this forms part of the access road around the Green but has been informally established as the cottage parking. The Hadrian Hotel is the village pub, serving pub meals and also boasts the fine-dining Restaurant Hjem. Bringing the flavours and style of Scandinavia with some local wild foraging, this restaurant has been awarded the first Michelin Star in Northumberland!.
