    “Overall a fantastic little break we had here.”

    House is stunning, room designs, interiors beautifully thought through. Garden is fabulous.. All the touches don't go unmissed ❤️ Few little negatives, it really could do with a full deep clean. Looks like most things that have been use and cleaned by previous guests were left, so alot of cutlery was dirty, ovens, lots of marks on walls etc. Let's the property down slightly. The garden is beautiful and has a nice wooden table but unsteady so not great for all. There is another corner sofa ...

    House is stunning, room designs, interiors beautifully thought through. Garden is fabulous.. All the touches don't go unmissed ❤️ Few little negatives, it really could do with a full deep clean. Looks like most things that have been use and cleaned by previous guests were left, so alot of cutlery was dirty, ovens, lots of marks on walls etc. Let's the property down slightly. The garden is beautiful and has a nice wooden table but unsteady so not great for all. There is another corner sofa but no outdoor cushions so very uncomfortable, also a Bbq would have been a great asset to this property during the spring/summer months . The location is fantastic, very quite, very pretty, overall despite the odd little issues as mentioned we had a wonderful extended family break. We would stay again and Thank you.

The property

Ponteland 3.6 miles. Nestled deep within the Northumberland countryside, in the charming village of Milbourne, you will find The Smithy. A luxurious stone-fronted dwelling, this attractive holiday home offers a fantastic base for any group getaway to the North East. Gather with friends on the plush grey sofa as you map out your plans for the duration of your stay, before flicking on the flat-screen TV and keeping nice and toasty from the heat of the woodburning stove. Make your way over to the stupendous kitchen, kitted out with sleek electrical appliances, such as two built-in double ovens and an impressive electric hob that sits happily within the striking kitchen island, and prepare a mouth-watering feast for all. Serve up at the breakfast bar, or for a more formal diner head into the grand dining room where you can enjoy a refreshing bottle of bubbly as you toast to the good times ahead. Continue the evening out in the garden, appreciating wonderful company as you indulge in drinks at the outdoor seating area whilst the kids remain entertained with a movie on the wall-mounted TV in the study. The ground floor is also home to a convenient cloakroom with a basin and WC, as well as a handy utility room where you can keep up on your laundry with the well-thought-out washing machine and tumble dryer. Choose to stay in one of the four beautifully decorated bedrooms located on the first floor, including a chic king-size bedroom styled with neutral hues and a pretty white wardrobe, along with an en-suite wetroom. Guests can also retreat to a second king-size bedroom complete with gorgeous mirrored furnishings and grey painted walls, or a twin bedroom with crisp white bedding and complimentary leafy tones, together creating a peaceful space to relax and unwind at the end of an action-packed day. Escape the excitement in the snug single, where you can admire the pretty blue and pink tones as you curl up in the plush grey armchair and lose yourself in the captivating narrative of your favourite book. Across the way lies a contemporary fully-tiled bathroom, home to a roomy walk-in shower and an attractive bath. Venture up the staircase to the second floor and be welcomed into a luxurious master bedroom boasting a spacious super-king-size bed with an eye-catching grey headboard, as well as the benefit of a fabulous en-suite bathroom and an additional dressing room, so you can take your time to get ready for an evening out on the town. The dressing room is also home to a handy sofa bed, ideal for flexible sleeping arrangements. When ready to explore the local area, be sure to stop by the imposing mansion of Belsay Hall, where you can wander the well-kept gardens to discover colourful flowers and admire the ancient greek inspired architecture. Pay a visit to the Kirby Hall Zoo to meet exotic animals and embark on magical trails, before heading off to Whitley Bay for a refreshing walk along the coast. Spend time in the city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and indulge in a delicious meal in one of the many well-established restaurants in the area. Explore the grounds of Newcastle Castle and the beautiful 11th century Cathedral of St. Nicholas Church, or learn of the local history at the Discovery Museum before crossing the famous Tyne or Millennium Bridge to Gateshead. Just a short drive away lies the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where visitors can enjoy breath-taking hikes through the luscious green countryside and discover miles of unspoilt landscapes boasting incredible views. Driving north you will find the charming market town of Alnwick, home to the historic Alnwick Castle which holds Harry Potter inspired events, something you and your little ones will delight in visiting. Sitting on the Northumberland coast, if you head further afield, it is no surprise that the village of Bamburgh is a popular spot for holidaymakers. With impressive historical sites such as Bamburgh and Lindisfarne Castle, as well as offering trips to Farne island - a birdwatcher's paradise. For an unforgettable family holiday to Northumberland, be sure to book a stay at The Smithy.
