Property Description

Silver Award from the Green Tourism Scheme.

Relax amid spectacular and dramatic scenery in this gloriously unspoilt part of Northumberland. Lying within the Northumberland National Park and enjoying panoramic views over Whitelee Fell National Nature Reserve, the cottages are former shepherd’s cottages on the owner’s sheep farm, renovated to a very good standard and retaining lots of character. Oak (ref 16498) and Birch (ref 15841) have beamed living room ceilings and all three have inglenook fireplaces with multi-fuel stoves for a warm and cosy atmosphere as well as power showers in the bathroom. There are wildlife cameras which feed live pictures direct to the flatscreen TV in each cottage, so you can watch barn owls, badgers and other wildlife. The area is rich in wildlife and ideal for walkers. Whitelee Farm is an idyllic base for exploring the Roman wall, Lindisfarne, Alnwick Castle, Kielder Forest Park and the Scottish borders. Newcastle and Edinburgh are within an easy drive. Shopping in Otterburn and Jedburgh, both 15 minutes away. NB: 15841, 16498 and 80119 are in close proximity to each other and can be booked together to accommodate up to 13 people.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Fabulous location, outstanding cottage, friendly & helpful owners. The webcam was amazing (as was the welcome bottle of wine). May 2012.
  2. A friendly couple that made us extremely welcome. A cosy cottage in beautiful surroundings that we can’t wait to return to. The Web cams are better than we ever expected. We would recommend this unreservedly. However saying that, we hope to book future holidays here and hope that there will be a vacancy now that the word is out. March 2012.
  3. The Oak Cottage was the most cosy cottage we have ever stayed in and just the ticket to. Feb 2012.
  4. An ideal location for anyone interested in exploring wildlife, walking and exploring the Northumberland National Park and Scottish Borders. The web cams bring barn owls right into your comfortable living room, the huge Whiteleee Nature Reserve is over the road and the owners could not be more friendly and helpful. June 2011.
  5. Fantastic property and the wildlife camera’s are amazing.We enjoyed watching the 6 Owlett’s fledge. The cottage was clean and very comfortable and the owners were very friendly. Walks from the door and birdwatching on the door step. The Swallows were fantastic! June 2011.
  6. Very nice cottage with secure garden, fitted out with good furniture and fittings. As sugested we saw the Owl chicks increasing from 4 to 6 during the week, we saw badgers feeding along with a fox one night all on the cctv fed to the tv. Very quiet location in a very beautiful part of the world. However if you are eating out you will need to travel 10 / 14 miles, as long as you know this its not a problem. Good store in Otterburn, the Hollybush Inn in Greenhaugh and the Pheasant Inn near Keilder are both worth a visit. April 2011.
  7. If you like wildlife, peace and quiet but with easy reachable distance to food and drink this is the place for you. Lovely owners who make you very welcome - loved it. Feb 2011.
  8. Clean, comfortable, well equipped, excellent location, friendly and helpful owners. Oct 2010.
  9. Spacious accommodation, well furnished, comfortable and warm. Very well equipped with good quality furnishings and furniture. Owners most welcoming and helpful. Sept 2010.
  10. Quietness of the area and the friendly ness of the owners. Aug 2010.
  11. It was exactly as depicted, the property was spotlessly clean, well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. May 2010.
  12. Very warm, clean and tidy. Owners live on the farm next door and could not be more friendly and helpful. Added bonus of a CCTV system with cameras in nest boxes and feeding stations so we had our very own 24 hour Spring Watch. April 2010.
  13. The peacefulness of the location was perfect. A lot larger than we expected and it was very warm and cosy. Nov 2009.
  14. The owners’ preparation, presentation, attention to detail, commitment to greener living and friendliness made a refreshing change. The property was well planned and laid out and was ideally placed for walkers and wildlife watchers. Sept 2009.
  15. Beautiful property, much nicer than pics! Oct 2009.
  16. We loved Oak Cottage, as did our dog, Hector, who was very taken with the fresh spring water. The cottage is very comfortable and the views over the hills sublime. We shall be back. Sept 2009.
  17. The owners where very friendly and couldn’t do enough for you. The welcoming tea & biscuits went down well as did the wine. Thank you for a wonderful holiday and we will be hopefully back soon. Feb 2009.
  18. A fantastic property, and we loved the wildlife camera’s. Cosy and comfortable and a delight to come back to after a day outing. The owners were very friendly and the little touches like a lit fire and bottle of wine on arrival were perfect. Feb 2009.
  19. The photographs do not do the property justice, it was a lovely place to stay and the snow made it a perfect winter wonderland. The owners were lovely hosts, really made us feel welcome. Jan 2009.
  20. We had a fantastic time at Oak Cottage. The property is in a beautiful location and the owners take great care and attention to the minor details that make the stay very memorable and unique. The wildlife cameras are unique and more interesting than we anticipated. Would certainly recommend as a fantastic get away. May 2008.
