Fishing can be organised directly with Sweethope adventure. Off road parking for 2 cars\n\n Perched right on the shore of a beautiful lake known as Sweethope Lough extensively renowned for its trout and fly fishing nestles this pair of single storey crofts which provide charming self catering holiday cottages in an idyllic setting. Built with traditional Northumbrian stone this pair of cottages offers a truly rural hideaway with a unique view. Surrounded by miles of open countryside and woodland the properties are positioned on the exclusive Ray  Estate. Formerly owned by the great inventor and industrialist Newcastle born Charles Parsons the Estate was purchased by Viscount Devonport’s family in 1954. The Estate has since been painstakingly restored and developed over the years by Lord Devonport. \nSweethope Loughs are consisting of two Loughs Little Lough being 12 acres and the Great Lough and impressive 140 acres. Sweethope Crofts are positioned on the southern edge of the Little Lough. \nThe accommodation within each cottage is conveniently all on ground floor level and although they can be booked independently an interlinking door can be unlocked to accommodate the gathering of families and friends. The living space is open plan with exposed beams to retain their character. Relax in front of the cosy wood burning stove and watch the flames dance after a day exploring the flora and fauna in the surrounding area. Enjoy gazing at the stars study the wildlife and watch the birds that regularly visit Sweethope Crofts. " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/710/840/710954.jpg CC325022

    Beautiful setting right next to sweethope fishing lake. The best part is no internet, it makes us stop and take note of the world around us and slow down! We love it so much we have been four times. Chris is so freindly and helpful, if you need to know anything or need anything he is the font of all local knowledge. Beautiful walks and amazing night sky with very little light pollution. We are going again next year as it is such good value for money.
