More About the Cottages

Our Northumberland cottages were developed from an 18th century byre and granary using Charles's skills as an engineer and Dee's creative background in fashion and textile design.

Their work sympathetically retains many original features and the historic feel of the place combined with very comfortable and high spec modern building design.

All three cottages form part of one traditional Northumbrian sandstone building, with a paved patio area outside including original feed troughs overflowing with cottage flowers. Each cottage has its own front door leading into its open plan ground floor space. The parking area is immediately beside the cottages.

These are very comfortable and cosy houses that work equally well individually or taken together to accommodate larger groups.

A Living History

Southlands is a small, 37-acre working farm with a story stretching back hundreds of years. We believe the farmhouse is one of a handful of mediaeval Northumbrian longhouses built during the reign of Henry VIII.

These days, the cottages are a little more insulated than they might have been then, and a lot more comfortable for our guests!
