The Bothy

Immerse yourself in the Northumberland countryside at the Bothy, an idyllic retreat specifically designed to offer flexibility in its layout.

Whether a couple, four friends or a family or more, The Bothy will encourage you to relax and let those batteries recharge in the peace and tranquility of the Bowmont Valley. Located down a no through lane the views from the cottage are spectacular and offers a real 'get away from it all' experience.

Collective muted shades, a polished oak floor and wonderfully spacious kitchen/living room. Bedrooms complete with cheerful stripes and ginghams too, make this country lodge from WildPlum both welcoming and homely. In the neighbouring barn you find an indoor games room and indoor picnic area with a wood burning stove, table tennis table, pool table and even table football! Great for wet days!

The Bothy is loved by campers, walkers, fishermen, horse riders and cyclists alike. Some even come with their horses and make use of the adjoining paddock. The less adventurous love it too, just for the peace and quiet and to curl up in front of a roaring log burner with a good book. Such is the draw of this happy home.

  • "Great place for kids, dogs and adults. Tried to make an effort to leave the cottage in the mornings and go sight seeing but could have just stayed in and enjoyed the views, the games, the sheep and the hills. Thank you for the great hamper and making sure the cottage is well stocked. Thank you for thinking of everything!!!"
  • "Beautiful cottage, wonderful hosts, all set in a peaceful valley. We are looking forward to our 4th visit. Thank you"
  • "Great cottage in very peaceful and child friendly surroundings. A couple of requests mid-week were seen to immediately – thanks Corinne. Have stayed in Barley Hill up the road too and would recommend both."
