a luxurious five star Gold self catering cottage for two near Hexham, Northumberland

If you're looking for a retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life, or a romantic getaway in the country, then the cottage at Woodside  is the place for you. The handcrafted wooden lodge nestles in the gardens of an 18th century cottage in Hexhamshire, just five miles south of the historic Northumberland market town of Hexham, with tranquil views over pastureland and wetland towards Slaley Forest and the fells of the North Pennines National Landscape

There's loads to do and see, all within easy reach of Woodside; from the unmissable and spectacular Hadrian's Wall, to the World Heritage Site of Durham, or  exploring the Northumberland National Park, and the Heritage Coast. Closer to home are the vibrant and historic city of Newcastle upon Tyne, and the market towns of Hexham, with its Abbey dating back to AD674, and Corbridge, full of independent shops.  If you would prefer to stay closer to home, Hexhamshire is criss crossed with amazing walking and cycling routes, right from the front door.

Woodside is the ideal destination for two people who wish to spend time 'away from it all.'

A large and airy open plan contemporary living and kitchen area with wide bifold doors opens onto the decking where you can relax.  Enjoy a glass of wine or a barbeque and lose yourself in the far reaching views towards forest and fell, while watching the bird life on the pond.  

The main bedroom features a super king size bed which can be split to form two full sized singles on request.  The adjoining shower room has a walk in shower, thick fluffy towels and luxurious toiletries.

Full wifi and telephone coverage mean you're never out of touch.   

Things to do

Where to start?  History obviously, from Hadrian's Wall, to Lindisfarne, Durham and all the castles and stately homes (there are more castles and fortified houses in Northumberland than in any other county in England, a result of centuries of border warfare with the Scots). Or there's spectacular scenery in the Northumberland National Park, the Heritage Coast and the North Pennines National Landscape. For city and culture lovers: drive or take the train down to Newcastle  where you can shop, eat, go to the theatre or just wander and admire the  architecture, including Graingertown and the Quayside, not forgetting the iconic Angel of the North.  You won't be bored!
