A traditional cottage on the very border of Northumberland National Park, Homildon Cottage is available for self-catering breaks. Sleeping up to eight, it offers seclusion and tranquility – while being within walking distance of Wooler.
The cottage provides a blend of the old and the new from a cosy, well-equipped kitchen with AGA to a large sitting room with vaulted ceiling and vintage wood burning stove. The house lies out of sight at the end of a short dead-end track from High Humbleton with the garden nestling under Humbleton Hill.

We love to cook and the kitchen is well-equipped to make use of local produce! There’s also a large farmhouse table (seats 8), Miele dishwasher, fridge freezer, second fridge, oil-fired two oven AGA, and an electric hob with a further double oven

A master ensuite bedroom, a beamed double bedroom, a double bedroom with views over the garden, and a twin bedroom. All rooms have been recently re-decorated in a light yet rustic style.

Light and airy second dining space
Our conservatory has an impressive dresser and second farmhouse table for sitting with a coffee and crossword in the morning, or eating on a long summer’s evening
A separate space
A separate study provides a large computer monitor and desk provide a space to work if there’s a crisis in the office, or for the kids to set up their PlayStation. Or simply settle in a comfy chair, read a book and watch the rabbits and birds come and go in the garden!
Outside the House
