This cosy, beautifully presented apartment forms part of Tilery House, set on a hill overlooking the picturesque village of Chatton and the stunning Cheviot Hills. The property has been refurbished to a very high standard and guests can enjoy home from home comforts whilst being well positioned to explore all that Northumberland has to offer. For those looking to un-wind, why not spend some time relaxing in the living room reading or watching the wildlife that visit the garden (over 100 different birds, deer, red squirrels and boxing hares)? Alternatively if you are feeling more energetic, there are many walking and cycling routes starting from the doorstep (or in the National Park a 5 minute drive away), fishing at the nearby lake, tennis in Wooler or golf at one of the many local golf courses. Guests often choose to visit nearby castles or stately homes, others take a picnic to the beach or to one of the beautiful valleys. There is something for almost everyone (there aren't any nightclubs). Chatton is a 10 minute walk away, where you will find a post office, shop, church and our local pub, The Percy Arms, which has been totally refurbished over the winter.
