Luxury two-bedroomed cottage in Tarset, nestled between Bellingham and Kielder in the Northumberland National Park.
The Stable was once home to three working shire horses and is now a fully refurbished, luxury bolthole, adjoining Knoppingsholme Farmhouse. (The Stable and sister cottage The Byres can be rented together to house 10 people.)
The beamed, open plan lounge/kitchen/diner is warmed by a roaring log burning stove: enjoy a glass of wine or a coffee, looking over a stunning country landscape. Polished wooden floors create a welcoming, rustic feel.
The front door opens onto a beautiful cottage courtyard, with open views and a traditional BBQ for lazy summer evenings. A batch of fuel is supplied to ensure cosy nights.
The kitchen area is fully-equipped with cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.
The master bedroom has a double bed and luxurious en-suite facilities with shower enclosure, WC and washbasin.
Twin bedded bedroom two also has an en-suite bathroom.
Nestled into the Northumberland Dark Sky Park, you may be treated to some of the most wonderful star gazing in Europe (weather permitting). Watch the Milky Way from your window!
A telescope is provided for nature’s dark sky show (refundable £20 deposit).
The cottage courtyard is fully enclosed, with garden furniture. There is off road parking for four cars. The cottage is on a working farm.
A pub and restaurant are within a country walk (1.5 and 2 miles). Bellingham (4 miles) has a golf course, butcher, shops, chemist, library, swimming pool and gym. The fabulous Kielder Observatory is 10 miles away, with nearby Kielder Forest and Water, Bird of Prey Centre, Salmon Farm and Leaplish Water Park. Opportunities for mountain biking, walking and fishing abound. Trains to Newcastle and Carlisle run from historic Hexham market town 20 miles away.
