The Offshot is brand new for 2015. A pretty little studio barn conversion providing a unique bolt hole for two people. Right next door to our other cottage, Bucklaw Cottage. Part vaulted ceiling creates a light and spacious feeling, and exposed stone feature wall adds to the charm. Carefully furnished with bespoke sourcing of contemporary and retro style furnishings. Provides a romantic and luxurious hideaway. One room living with separate luxury shower room and fully fitted kitchen which features designer appliances. Leather corner sofa provides a comfortable seating area with the added luxury of a projector with freeview channels to add a touch of decadence. A vintage style record player with a selection of LP's gives another quirky touch. Large collection of reading material. King size...The Offshot is brand new for 2015.

Situated in a courtyard setting this stone barn conversion has a rural feel, yet is only a 10 minute drive, or a 20 minute walk away from the historic market town of Alnwick with all of its attractions and ameneties. We offer parking in the car park at the entrance to the courtyard.More

Interaction with guests
We do not actually live on site, but there are lots of contact details in the welcome folder inside the cottage if you need anything. We have a secure key box, the instructions and code will be sent a week before your visit. If you would prefer a meet and greet, we are very happy to provide that service if you let us know.
