With polished granite worktops at the kitchen area and on the central island, there is a lot of working space. The stainless steel cooking range has 5 gas hobs and double oven, along with a microwave, so there is plenty of cooking capacity.

LocationCornhill on Tweed

The small village of Cornhill on Tweed sits on the river Tweed in England. The surrounding area is a beautiful mix of rolling fields and the stunning Cheviot Hills, making the village a perfect spot for getting away from it all! As with all the settlements in this area of the country, the village has a rich and turbulent history, thanks to its proximity with Scotland, during the Independence War. The nearby Flodden Battlefield pays tribute to this. Not far away is the English Trust’s Etal Castle ruins, and a bit further to the east, the ruins of Norham Castle, both strongholds during the raging wars. There are a small number of eateries within a few miles of the village, if you wanted to dine out during your holiday, and if you have youngsters to entertain, you may like to pay a visit to the Heatherslaw Ligh Railway, a steam trainline that runs to Etal Castle. 

Northumberland

The most northern of the English counties, Northumberland reaches from the Scottish Border along the east coast just shy of Newcastle, and across the North Pennines. This massive area is sparsely populated compared with other counties, and it is its awesome landscapes and scenery that make this region popular with visitors. Included within the county’s boundaries are the North Pennines, Northumberland National Park, The North Coast Area of Natural Beauty, Hadrian's Wall and many more spaces perfect for walkers, cyclists, wildlife enthusiasts and explorers. As with the Scottish border counties, Northumberland has a rich history of skirmishes and battles with the Scots, which has resulted in a large number of castle sites to explore. Many are ruins now, including the romantic coastal Dunstanburgh Castle. Others are beautifully restored, like the fantastic sprawling fortification of Bamburgh Castle, which was rebuilt in the 1800s. Some have remained in the same family line for centuries, like Alnwick Castle home to the Duke of Northumberland. This particular castle has starred on the television a number of times, including Harry Potter! There are a number of larger towns in the county worth visiting, including the picturesque medieval market town of Alnwick, the County town and administrative centre of Morpeth, and Hexham, home to the fabulous Hexham Abbey.
