Immerse yourself in an off grid experience 1400 feet above sea level in the heart of the Northumberland National Park at Chaffinch Cottage. This luxury cottage benefits from sustainable solar and wind power, with its location in the Northumberland Dark Sky Park making it a destination for sky gazers from around the world.
Chaffinch Cottage sleeps four guests across two bedrooms. Set across one floor, the open plan living and dining room is the social hub of the property. In here those staying will find a comfy sofa and armchair sitting in front of the flat screen TV and wood burning stove. There is also a dining table and benches seating up to six people. The well equipped kitchen with granite work surfaces is complete with a single gas oven, gas hob, fridge with freezer box, microwave, and washing machine.
A calming palette of greys and whites is seen throughout the cottage and complements the sleek and modern finish. There are two bedrooms, one of which is a king size and the other has twin single beds. They share a family bathroom with a shower over the bath and a range of luxury Pentaligon products. As an extra added touch, those staying are greeted by a welcome hamper filled with local produce and a complimentary bottle of champagne.
Outside is a private enclosed garden is at the rear of the property, along with outdoor furniture and an environmentally friendly Outback barbecue in-keeping with the property’s ethos. Guests can sit out and enjoy an evening drink or alfresco meal. From the shared front garden you can also take in the breathtaking views across the surrounding countryside and the rolling hills of the Upper Coquet Valley.
Although located off the grid, it doesn’t take long to find nearby attractions. The village of Thropton has a shop selling essentials and also two pubs, including the Three Wheat Heads which dates back 300 years and has a cosy bar and a restaurant with fine dining. For those who want to eat out Clennell Hall in Harbottle is even closer and also offers occasional music evenings. The charming village of Rothbury is a little bigger and has a great selection of independent shops, a deli, bakery, and butchers.
The slower pace of life and vibrant energy of the hills soothes the mind, body and soul during your stay. With this in mind, the owners along with Nichola Lawson from Harmony Spa have designed a new dedicated Holistic Healing Cabin offering a wide range of treatments from aromatherapy massage to angel reiki for you to enjoy during your stay. This charming, rrustic, wooden cabin is heated using wind felled logs, which creates a warm and inviting space in-keeping with the ‘green’ ethos and enhancing a sense of well-being whilst at Kidlandlee.
