Reload this mapTraditional stone cottage, recently undergone modernisation, set on a working farm in the heart of Northumberland. Perfect for a tranquil country holiday but with many of the County's finest tourist attractions under 1hr away. Closer to home, enjoy fabulous walks, on-site massage and fishing on the river Rede (1 rod free of charge) or simply curl up with a good book in front of the log burning stove!
Old Town Farm is located 1 mile south of Otterburn in the Rede Valley, home to the infamous Border Reivers in centuries gone by. Otterburn is better known nowadays for its Woollen Mill and welcoming hotel bars and restaurants. The village shop is well stocked and nearby Bellingham has a traditional butcher, baker and Co-op. Or, by arrangement, try catching your own supper on the river Rede, a short walk across the farm fields.
