About the neighbourhood
The property lies just outside the village of Elsdon in a beautiful unspoilt area of Northumberland; on one side the heather topped hills and the other sheep covered green fields. A wonderful area for walking and cycling. 2 3/4 miles (5 minutes) to Otterburn for weddings at Le Petit Chateau, Woodhill Hall and Otterburn Castle. 40 minutes to Newcastle, Hexham, Alnwick or Morpeth - or over the border into Scotland (nearest town Jedburgh). 35/40 minutes to Kielder Water and Castle. There is so much to see and do, whatever the weather.
Getting around
We are located next to the A696 which runs from Newcastle to Jedburgh. There are infrequent buses which stop outside the property going south in the morning Monday-Saturday and going north in the afternoon and evening Monday-Saturday.
