Cosy Retreats are proud to present Exchange Cottage. This former telephone exchange (hence the name!) provides the perfect base for soaking up the history, sights and tastes of Northumberland. Now converted into a two-bedroom detached bungalow, Exchange Cottage provides spacious accomodation for both couples and families alike. The spacious lounge, with French doors out on to the patio and garden area, allows for total relaxation after a busy day of exploring. There is wi-fi throughout the cottage and the lounge includes two leather sofas, 32' flat-screen TV with DVD and Freeview and a selection of books, games and DVDs for those cosy evenings in. We're delighted to say that we can also now offer unlimited high-speed fibre broadband to our guests. There is a neat fold-out dining table if ...Cosy Retreats are proud to present Exchange Cottage.

We're delighted to say that we can also now offer unlimited high-speed fibre broadband to our guests. There is a neat fold-out dining table if you're eating in and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you will need as well as a dishwasher, washing machine, coffee maker, microwave, kettle, toaster, oven, gas hob and fridge with a freezing compartment. You will also find there's tea, coffee and milk to welcome you at your journey's end. There are two bedrooms in the cottage - a master bedroom with a double bed and twin bedroom with two single beds. Both bedrooms are incredibly spacious with good quality furniture. The master bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room with WC. In addition there is a family bathroom with a bath that has an electric shower over. Outside the cottage benefits from a private, fenced patio with a sturdy wooden picnic table and garden area - perfect for sitting out and the garden is ideal if you have little ones. There is a private parking space directly outside the cottage, which will accomodate up to two vehicles. There is also plenty of private, outdoor space at the cottage for storing bikes, scooters, surf-boards etc as well as an outside tap and hose for rinsing them down. The heating in the cottage is by means of gas central heating, the cost of which, as well as the provision of linen and towels, is included in the price. A travel cot and high chair are also available in the cottage, should you require them. Pets - The owners of Exchange Cottage are always happy to welcome well behaved dogs with responsible owners. There is a box of dog towels if you need them and we would ask that you bring your own throws/blankets if you would like to have your four-legged friends on the sofa for cuddles! Please note Exchange Cottage is available for short breaks all year round EXCEPT the May half term and summer school holidays.More
