The detail

This beautiful former-schoolhouse perches 1400 feet above sea level and boasts breathtaking views across the Upper Coquet Valley in Northumberland. It has been classically styled inside, making a warm, cosy and welcoming place to relax after days exploring the many trails that begin at the front door.

Days cycling and hiking or discovering the local area are completed by evenings enjoying the luxury of the cottage, sinking into the large leather Chesterfield sofa in front of the roaring wood burner. Candles stand in the fireplaces, ready to be lit, their flicker creating a calm and dreamy atmosphere. Two large baskets of logs ensure the burner remains well-fuelled throughout the stay and oil burners keeps the stone cottage warm whatever the weather outside.

The stylish living room also boasts two handsome Club armchairs and a wooden dining table. Entertainment comes in the form of the family games and cards, whilst the television offers you a chance to enjoy a movie night in with your loved ones. Meals are easy to prepare in the modern kitchen where visitors also find a decadent welcome hamper on arrival, filled with goodies including a bottle of Berry Bros sparking wine.

At bedtime, choose from two good sized bedrooms, a twin and a master with a king sized wooden framed bed. Snuggly duvets and woollen blankets make for a cosy night's sleep and the remote location ensures nothing disturbs guests from a restful night. The master bedroom has a door leading directly out onto the patio, so wander out with a morning coffee, take in the fresh air and enjoy some quiet moments alone.

Both bedrooms and the family bathroom are situated on the ground floor making them easily accessible. The bathroom is a luxurious space to unwind in the deep bathtub. There is endless hot water, Penhaligon's toiletries and thick fluffy bath towels - where better to soak the bones after a day exploring the trails?

There are some lovely traditional pubs near the schoolhouse where guests can enjoy some great food and drinks beside roaring fires in historic hostelries. Three Wheat Heads comes highly recommended. It is a 300 year-old coaching inn with fine dining and a cosy bar. The Star Inn is just four miles away and does good pub food which is also available for takeaway. Or head over to Rothbury, a pretty village where visitors enjoy strolls by the riverside, picking up treats to cook back at the schoolhouse.

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.
