West Nichold Cottage description

Holiday home
West Nichold Cottage is a detached cottage, situated on the owner's working farm near the village of Gilsland and Hadrian's Wall. The cottage sleeps eight people in three en-suite double bedrooms and one twin with family bathroom and separate wet room. Also in the cottage is a fitted kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with French doors. Outside is ample off road parking and garden with furniture. Situated in between the Northumberland National Park and Cumbria, West Nichold Cottage is a lovely family cottage ideally based to explore this lovely part of the country.

Gilsland is a small village with most of its houses in Northumberland, but the edges spilling over into Cumbria, and is home to a country inn. It is situated on Hadrian's Wall, and is ideal for exploring the north Pennines, Eden Valley, the Scottish Borders and even as far south west as the Lake District National Park. Gilsland lies within 10 miles of Housesteads Roman Fort and Vindalanda, famous for the Roman parchment letters and settlement reconstruction. There are numerous castle ruins close by including Blenkinsopp, Thirlwall, Bellister and Bewcastle. The pretty market town of Brampton is within a 15 minute drive and Carlisle is just 30 minutes away. For a great day trip, visit the Lake District National Park, or spend a day in Cumbria. The scenery in this area is stunning, with wide panoramic vistas looking out on the Roman Wall which follows the Whin Sill escarpment, making this quiet corner of England a walker's and cyclist's delight.

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.

We loved how remote the cottage was and the owners were lovely and welcoming! Perfect for a remote getaway with friends or for walkers and explorers.
