Former blacksmith's workshop, now a chic retreat in the idyllic setting of the Northumberland hills, within easy reach of some of UK’s most beautiful beaches.
Please note: minimum stay for this property is: 3 nights low season & 7 nights high season
This beautiful little retreat was once a Blacksmith’s workshop. Now, it’s a delicately assembled cottage that finds its home on the rolling hillsides of Northumberland, with a beautiful stone facade and orange tiled roof all neatly packaged in a private garden that affords inspiring views of the Cheviot Hills.
The cottage is well situated for ramblers and those who enjoy roaming the quaint villages, beaches and rural walkways of Northumberland. The Smithy is a flexible holiday home set all on one level The bedroom has a superking bed and comes with a range of comforting amenities such as a built-in wardrobe, dressing table and a fantastic rain forest power shower (in a separate shower room). The sitting room is exquisite with its charming exposed beams and the original open fire left over from when The Smithy was a blacksmith’s workshop. There’s also a long table that can accommodate up to 6 guests, HD TV, i-pod dock and DVD player, as well as a sofa and a double sofa bed - which makes this cottage perfect for those travelling in small groups or for when expecting guests. The private garden comes with a picnic table and a prim lawn that provides views over the nearby hills.
Exploring the area is an absolute pleasure, whether by foot, by car or even by horse - there are plenty of idyllic beaches to take advantage of along Northumberland's impressive 25 miles worth of heritage coastline, and history fans will adore the nearby castles, which includes the infamous Chillingham castle which is said to be the most haunted castle in Britain, and Alnwick castle which was used throughout the filming of the Harry Potter films franchise. Train enthusiasts should take a ride on the charming miniature steam railway which runs from Heartherslaw to Etal. We suggest you take advantage and disembark in Etal to explore the sights in the village which include an atmospheric 14th century castle and a pretty collection of thatched houses - mostly adorned with flowers and painted white - lending the village a dreamy fairytale-like atmosphere.
