    “We had a very enjoyable week at Sarah's Cottage which is very well appointed with comfortable spacious rooms.”

    There are walks from the doorstep and many National Trust and English Heritage places to visit. Hosts Sarah and Brian were very welcoming and informative and on arrival the pack of goodies was much appreciated. David, Celia & Molly.

The property

Morpeth 8.7 miles. Attached to the owner's home adjacent to the quiet Northumberland village of Hartburn, Sarah's Cottage is a beautiful two-bedroom cottage offering a relaxing retreat. Enjoying quality furnishings and interiors and settled within the owner's 14 acres of grounds, Sarah's Cottage is an ideal escape for two couples to the Northumberland countryside, within easy reach of Morpeth and the coast. Two off-road parking spots await you on arrival before you come to your own front door and into a spacious entrance hall, noticing the beautiful tumble limestone floors below. A cloakroom rests of this hall, before you continue through to find the pristine kitchen, recently fitted with sparkling granite worktops and dove cupboards, with a handy dishwasher among the integrated appliances here. Head into the living/dining room to relax with a woodburning stove settled in front of the sofas and armchairs and the Smart TV, whilst a dining table sits behind providing somewhere to gather at mealtimes. Patio doors open out onto a patio area to enjoy with seating here, while further into the garden, find a lawned area dedicated for guests among the wonderful grounds, with outdoor seating here too for summer fun. There are two staircases on either side of the property, each leading to a super king-size bedroom and a double which both enjoy light and bright interiors, Velux windows, and one showcasing a bespoke wardrobe made from stunning timber. Each also benefits from an en-suite, with one boasting a shower room, and the other a bathroom, with a lockable interconnecting door between the two. The village of Hartburn lies less than ten miles from the bustling market town of Morpeth where you'll find a host of shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy all settled around the winding River Wansbeck. Enjoy riverside walks, strolls through Morpeth's green areas or visit nearby Bolam Lake Country Park for a walk around the waters, canoeing or fishing for pike and perch.
