    “Isolated situation.”

    Centrally placed in Northumberland so you can reach both coast and Hadrians wall areas. North is Wallington and Cragside two NT properties not to be missed. South is Durham City and Beamish open air museum etc. Roads are quiet. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped. Has an unusual boiler fed by wooden pellets. Welcome pack included muffins and Cava.

The property

Matfen 2.9 miles. Surrounded by countryside in the hamlet of Ingoe near Matfen, Northumberland is the quaint cottage at 5 Richley Terrace. The elevated position provides far-reaching, country views in a peaceful location, perfect for families, couples or friends seeking a relaxing escape in Northumberland. When you arrive, you'll find off-road parking for one car and an enclosed, front garden where you can dine al fresco and relax with a glass of wine, all while admiring the view. Be welcomed inside by the characterful sitting room with high ceilings, exposed beams, and sofas set in front of a gorgeous stone-built fireplace housing a woodburning stove. Moving through the cottage, there is a contemporary kitchen with everything you need to rustle up home-cooked meals, including an electric oven, gas hob, fridge/freezer, and a washing machine to freshen up your walking gear. Completing the ground is the first of two bedrooms, a sumptuous king-size bed with Egyptian cotton linen, a dressing table, and bedside lamps. Upstairs, the second bedroom is a twin with sloped ceilings, Velux windows framing the countryside, and built-in storage. When it's time to venture out, you'll find country walks from your doorstep around Ingoe, whilst the village of Matfen is a short drive away for dining at the Matfen Black Bull or stocking up at the Dulcissima coffee house and deli. For a family-friendly day out, choose from a variety of activities in the treetops at Go Ape Matfen! Nearby historic sites include Hadrian's Wall, which is a short journey from your cottage and has Roman remains of forts, towers, turrets and towns, stretching 73 miles from coast to coast. The spectacular Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens, the Roman village of Corbridge with Aydon Castle, and The Old Potteries are all worth a visit, whilst the National Trust's Wallington Hall has a beautiful walled garden and the Dragon cycle trail, a traffic-free and family-friendly route. A short drive brings you to the market town of Hexham where you can explore Hexham Abbey, picnic in Hexham Park, and choose from a range of restaurants and pubs such as Cilantro for tapas, The Tannery pub, and Danielle's Bistro for homestyle cooking. For more attractions, spend the day in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, brimming with museums, galleries, and a fantastic nightlife, or perhaps you'd prefer idyllic walks through the North Pennines AONB and Northumberland National Park?

MATFEN

Hexham 10.5 miles; Newcastle-upon-Tyne 18.2 miles; Sunderland 31 miles.

Situated in the Northumberland countryside is the village of Matfen, a charming settlement found just under twenty miles from the bustling city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Centered around the Matfen Burn is the heart of the village which is home to Matfen Village Store and Café, a welcoming spot to pick up your self-catering essentials, and Matfen Black Bull, a delightful country local pub for enjoying a well-deserved drink after a day of roaming the beautiful area. Just a few miles north is the historic Hadrian's Wall with a prehistoric standing stone located nearby, Stob Stone reaching around seven-feet high, a grade pit-stop during a walk, whilst the Roman road, The Devil's Causeway, passes the village to the west leading north up to Berwick-upon-Tweed, providing a great way to explore. Discover the Grade II listed Matfen Hall, now a country club and hotel with a golf club set within delightful grounds, enjoy an indulgent spa day here or play a round of golf on the excellent course. Adventurers can embark on an epic experience at Go Ape Matfen where you can jump through the tree-tops around the thrilling canopy rope course, whilst a session of quad-biking with Turboventure will really awaken the senses!
