Burnside Cottage, Burnside

Several readers nominated Burnside Cottage including Chloe Wanless, Bianca-Jade Smada and John Sharp.

A hot tub, wildlife and cosy interiors are some of the luxuries on offer at the cottage.

One Facebook review said: "Just got back from Burnside Cottage, absolutely amazing place. The house itself was unreal and so clean, had every little accessory and bit of detail you could ever need." 

Stanegate Hideaways, Henshaw

Rachel Mackenzie and Wendy Lee said their favourite place was Stanegate Hidaways.

There is either Stable Cottage or the three Hideaway Huts, named the Bothy, the Shieling and the Wainscot.

A review on Facebook said: "This place is so cute and Helen and Damien, the owners, have packed so much inside! It’s so cosy and so comfortable."

Wannies Retreat, West Woodburn

Described as a 'railway carriage full of delights' on the businesses' website, the converted railway coach has attracted celebrity attention from the likes of Robson Green, who visited the carriage on an episode of BBC's Weekend Escapes. 

Glen Harrison said: "Wannies Retreat is by far the best location and great owners. Robson Green agrees."

One positive Facebook review said: "We have just got back from an amazing two-night stay here. We were blown away by Annabel’s amazing special little touches to make the experience even more magical and wonderful than it already is."

Cedar Lodge, Stonehaugh

Nestled within the National Park, Cedar Lodge is close to various walking routes, waterfalls and boasts stunning dark sky views.

Gary Mayhew recommended the lodge. "A cabin in the forest in walking distance of the village bar," he said.

One review posted on Airbnb said: "We had a lovely stay at Cedar Lodge, it was super cosy & clean," adding "We also loved that there were towels, treats and a blanket for the dog."

Hadrian's Garden Cottage, Henshaw

One place recommended for 'spectacular outdoor space' was this cottage located near the Twice Brewed Inn.

One Facebook review said: "I can’t begin to recommend this accommodation highly enough. The cottage is cosy and spotless, beds are comfy, shower is powerful, fireplace is beautiful.

"And that’s not even me started on the spectacular outdoor space. The hot tub is divine and relaxing but the gardens, separate outdoor seating areas and views across Northumberland are quite something else."
