    “Stayed in the Apartment for 6 people.”

    Lovely and spacious, bedding, towels, kitchen supplies etc. The stairway area was a bit dirty and didn't give a good first impression. The apartment itself was clean enough, although not spotless. Dusty skirting boards. We were only provided 1 toilet roll so recommend you take extra. 2 of the bedrooms don't have a mirror so we all had to use the one bedroom with a mirror when getting ready for a wedding.

    Lovely and spacious, bedding, towels, kitchen supplies etc. The stairway area was a bit dirty and didn't give a good first impression. The apartment itself was clean enough, although not spotless. Dusty skirting boards. We were only provided 1 toilet roll so recommend you take extra. 2 of the bedrooms don't have a mirror so we all had to use the one bedroom with a mirror when getting ready for a wedding. There was n iron, but no ironing board. For an apartment of 6, I thin mirrors, toilet rolls, and and ironing board is a pretty basic expectation. We were told we could access the apartment at 1pm. When we arrived at 1.30pm, the apartment hadn't been cleaned form the previous occupants. When we called, the Manager did resolve it straight quickly and said the cleaning company hadn't turned up. We went out, came back at 5pm and it was ready.

Benefitting from an open-plan living space, woodburning stove and close access to the local amenities, Butterchurn Apartment welcomes six guests to enjoy a tranquil escape to Northumberland. After unloading in the off-road parking space, ascend the staircase to your new dwelling, entering to be impressed by an inviting living area where you and your loved ones can congregate and debrief after a day of adventures. In the kitchen, get to grips with a great array of appliances before cooking up a storm for the whole family, to be enjoyed at the dining table; alternatively, if the weather permits, make use of a shared rear garden to delight in an alfresco affair. When the evening grows cooler, take refuge in the charming sitting area and cosy up in front of the roaring woodburning stove, ready to click on the TV and catch up on your favourite shows. If you’re seeking some much-needed R&R, slope off to the sleek bathroom and treat yourself to a long soak or warm shower before opting for either a super-king-size, king-size or twin to rest your head in.

About the location

OTTERBURN

Bellingham 7 miles; Alnwick 29 miles.

The delightful village of Otterburn, once the site of the famous 1388 victory of the Scots over the English, nestles close to the banks of the River Rede, between the hills and moors overlooking the North Tyne Valley. It offers excellent walking opportunities and is on a variety of popular routes for cyclists. Hadrian's Wall and the beautiful Kielder Forest and Waters are close by, providing fantastic fishing, horse riding and nature watching, amidst superb, tranquil countryside. Otterburn is the former home of a busy weaving industry, and the world famous Otterburn Mill marks the village's historic past. Nearby Bellingham, built predominantly from local stone and slate, houses a handful of pubs, shops and tea rooms and a highly regarded 18 hole golf course. Visit the nearby, majestic, stately homes of Wallington Hall and Cragside, or the historic market town of Alnwick, with its stunning castle and gardens, a mere 40 minute drive. Otterburn is a superb location for a relaxing holiday, any time of year.
