The property

Ridley Lodge is a beautiful, detached holiday home in West Thirston, a small village adjacent to Felton, amid the Northumberland countryside. Just paces away from amenities and the River Coquet for strolls, this pet friendly dwelling is ideal for a group or family, of seven/eight people. On arrival, upload your belongings from the off-road parking spaces and admire the stone-fronted property with its contemporary finishes. Enter the boot room, where you house your muddy shoes, ready for a rural ramble. On entering the hallway, the young ones can escape to chill out in the games room, complete with 45” Amazon Fire Smart TV with built in Alexa, retro Xbox and games, traditional board games and other activities to keep them entertained. At the heart of this home, is the spacious kitchen and dining area hosting everything you need for a self-catered stay, including a Range cooker, American style fridge and microwave. Gather round the bespoke dining table with its long benches and chairs to seat the whole group. Afterwards, why not soak in the secluded countryside setting, relaxing on the outdoor seating area, with a glass of wine. As the day draws to night, the patio doors lead into the tastefully furnished sitting room, with vaulted ceilings and sumptuous sofas, to enjoy a movie marathon with complimentary Disney+ subscription, on the the 65” Alexa enabled Fire TV. Admire the warmth of the wood burning stove and as eyes grow heavy, retreat upstairs and indulge in a leisurely soak in the stylish bathroom or opt for a hot shower to wash the day away. The property offers four bedrooms, with delightful bedding to sink into; choose between 2 kingsize beds with en-suites; a twin bedroom, which can be converted into a super kingsize on request, or a bunk bedroom, which is perfect for the little ones. Ridley Lodge is located near the famous Running Fox Artisan bakery for a special treat, as well as the fabulous Northumberland Arms to enjoy a crisp pint and home cooked meals. For a day filled with fun, visit the Northumberland Country Zoo to see furry animals, test your swing at Burgham Park and Leisure club or explore the medieval Brinkburn Priory and Manor House. Venture into the market town of Alnwick; here you can visit the famous Alnwick Castle, have a guided tour around the The Alnwick Garden Poison Garden and explore the delights of the enormous Tree House. Ridley Lodge is less than a mile from the A1 and is half way between Alnwick to the North and Morpeth to the South making it the perfect base for exploring the Northumberland countryside and coastline. For long-lasting memories, escape to Ridley Lodge.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
