A 2-Bedroom Northumberland Cottage with Mezzanine
A luxury living space in a traditional building with a modern twist. This is where would all love to live, but it's just not that practical for day to day living, but isn't that what holidays should be about?
The front door opens into the sitting room and kitchen / dining area. which are segregated by a wide spiral staircase, the banister continues, forming the balcony of the mezzanine floor twin bedroom.
The ground floor is tiled with ceramic tiles and has under-floor heating; upstairs there is oil fired central heating. The sitting room area is very relaxing with a “Jetmaster” wood-burning open fire and comfortably seats 6.
The hand made well equipped kitchen has fitted units and granite worktops. A traditional pine dresser contains all china and glass and the antique pine dining table has chairs for 6.
East makes an ideal space for 4 people, or rented along with Middle Cottage to create space for 6.

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!
