The property

Tucked away in the quiet hamlet of Sheepwash near Morpeth, Northumberland, rests this delightful three bedroom holiday home, 2 Thompsons Building. Boasting an inviting and homely interior and enveloped by wonderful countryside, 2 Thompsons Buildings offers an idyllic base for both family and friends alike looking to explore the remarkable sights of the North East. Stepping into the property you're welcomed into a handy porchway, providing ample storage space to house your beach going essentials and walking gear, where you kick off you boots and wipe off any mucky paws before continuing through to the main areas of the cottage. Freshen up with a quick soak amongst the bubbles in the contemporary family bathroom, or make use of the convenient handheld shower to rinse off your sandy toes before heading through to the open-plan kitchen/diner, beautifully-presented with a traditional wooden décor and framing breath-taking views across the colourful garden, home to an array of amenities to assist in preparing a selection of tasty treats for the group to enjoy gathered around the snug dining table. If you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, head outside to the large well-maintained garden to indulge in a spot of alfresco dining, enveloped in the tranquil setting of the surrounding greenery and countryside. Stepping back indoors, after a busy day of adventures retire to the sitting room to put your feet up in front of the television and enjoy a movie night, warming the room with the electric fire in the cooler evenings. When the day draws to a close, climb the stairs where you'll find three delightful bedrooms, two double rooms, beautifully-appointed with stained antique wooden furnishings, maintaining the property's traditional character, alongside a light and airy single room, providing the perfect space to escape the excitement and delve into a captivating book. If you don't fancy cooking, take the short stroll to the Anglers Arms in Sheepwash serving delicious homemade meals in a cosy atmosphere or a 10 minute walk to the family run pizzeria, Raffaellos, in Choppington. Blow off some steam with a leisurely stroll along the Wansbeck River stopping for breakfast or lunch at the Riverside Pantry. This area is also popular for paddleboarding. You can cycle along the designated track which takes you to Newbiggin beach. A 30 minute walk over the fields takes you to historical Bothal with it's ancient castle and freshwater swimming. Travel further afield and traverse the moorland and sandstone hills that decorate the landscape of the nearby Northumberland National Park, home to the longest stretch of the historic Hadrian's Wall. Head south and a 30 minute drive will take you to Seaton Sluice with it's famous fish and chips at the Harbour View. Pack up your beach going essentials and enjoy a revitalizing dip in the refreshing waters at Blyth Beach, or if you'd prefer to stay on land, visit the town of Tynemouth home to a host of restaurants and beaches to enjoy.
