Holiday Cottage Description
Imagine yourself sitting in front of the roaring log burning stove on those cooler evenings and looking out at the lake through the magnificent picture windows that truly bring the outside into your living room. Or sitting on the glass fronted balcony watching the wildlife while you sip a glass of wine and watch the beautiful sunsets across the water.
The cottage itself has two spacious double bedrooms each with its own en suite shower/bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped with all you could want for your holiday. Two nearby pubs will welcome you and for more sophisticated dining you are only a few miles from the lovely market towns of Morpeth or Rothbury or from Ponteland. For those wanting a busier day or evening out Newcastle or the Metro Centre at Gateshead are readily accessible with shops, restaurants, cinemas and theatres.
It may be possible to arrange some fishing on the well stocked lake if you want to give it a try get in touch and well see what we can arrange for you. If you are interested in bringing your horse on holiday with you get in touch and we can help you to put together a bespoke holiday package.
Pets will be allowed at the owners discretion as she needs to be confident that the wildlife wont be disturbed by their presence. We truly look forward to welcoming you to The Boathouse.
Some of the comments made by our early visitors to The Boathouse
"I would recommend The Boathouse to all who wish to step out of the business of life. Perfect for all who enjoy watching the wildlife, swans, geese, moorhens, bats - an ever changing view in a terrific location near Morpeth, Alnwick. Lots of National Trust properties to visit close by and fly fishing on the lake. Sarah is very welcoming and made us feel at home, the house was filled with gifts to welcome us, the property is a home from home, very comfortable with everything you could wish for. Enjoy, we will be returning."
"Situated on the banks of a lovely lake, the situation of The Boathouse was absolutely perfect. Sitting on the deck in the evening, watching the swans, ducks and geese on the lake was the perfect ending to each day. At the end of our stay we couldn't think of a single thing that was missing. The Boathouse was well appointed, scrupulously clean, and very comfortable. Next time we visit this part of Northumberland we will definitely try to stay here again."
"Paradise! I do not want to leave and I will definitely try to come again. Such a gorgeous spot. The Boathouse has been beautifully restored and acted like a luxury bird hide for us. Amongst other spots we saw 81 Canada Geese, 4 Little Cranes, 4 swans, Osprey, Buzzards, Warblers, bats, an owl and an otter!....
We also enjoyed trips to Newcastle, Cresswell Sands, Morpeth Park, Bolam Lake, a local forest"
