Holiday home The Birches is a detached cottage on the outskirts of Morpeth. The cottage sleeps ten people and has two bedrooms on the ground floor, one with an en-suite and one with use of the family bathroom on this level, and two first floor bedrooms, both with en-suites. The ground floor also offers a kitchen with dining area, and a sitting room with woodburner. Outside is off road parking and an enclosed garden with lawn, deck, furniture and a private hot tub. The Birches is just a short stroll from the amenities of Morpeth, and makes a great base for enjoying the coastline, countryside and attractions of Northumberland.
Area Morpeth is a beautiful little market town and is well placed to reach the countryside or the coast from its central location in the heart of Northumberland. The town has plenty to offer such as the ruins of a historic castle, parks, churches and an old chantry that houses a bagpipe museum. Further afield to the south lies the bustling city of Newcastle upon Tyne and northwards is the historic town of Alnwick with its castle and gardens, whilst over to the East, Druridge Bay has miles of glorious golden sands to be enjoyed by the whole family. Close by is the National Trust property of Wallington Hall and all around Morpeth there is good walking country with access to the Cheviot and the Simonside Hills, making this an ideal base for a holiday.
Region Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.
The house was one of the best we have ever stayed in, the quality of everything was first class. It was an ideal location for exploring Northumberland.
It was a lovely holiday home and we had a really lovely time here, there was plenty to go out and see and it was great for staying in - great outdoor and indoor space.
A spacious place, yet homely, with a helpful owner. There is a hot tub, easy to use. Warm, great fire, wonderful welcome pack and great porch for wet gear.
Fabulous place to spread out and holiday in luxury and comfort. We found the location great for last minute Christmas shopping and the hot tub was a huge bonus enjoyed by all. The owner was very friendly and attentive. We liked the attention to detail, cleanliness and presentation of the property.
A really gorgeous house; peaceful and well equipped, the hot tub is lovely, can't wait to go back!
The accommodation was superb and spacious. The standard of the fixtures and fittings was excellent. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.
The accommodation was fantastic, giving us communal time together but also personal space in our own rooms. The hot tub was a luxury we enjoyed in the dark cold foggy weather. The house provided everything we needed and even more. The owner was helpful and friendly.
The house was very well equipped, furnished to a high standard, with a helpful owner. Lovely secluded garden.
The house was everything we could have hoped for. Just wish we had more time there.
