Located in a small square, yards from the main street, The Hidden Cottage offers charm, tranquillity, and convenience. A feature is the cottage’s original range, now housing an electric convector stove with visual log-burning effect. It also provides sizeable, secure storage for cycles and a secluded, south-facing patio/lawned garden. The historic and picturesque market-town of Morpeth sits on the banks of the beautiful river Wansbeck. Because of the property’s central location, and the relatively contained area of the town-centre around two main streets and the river, exploring by foot is thoroughly recommended. Walking from the property onto the main streets reveals an extensive and excellent selection of restaurants, shops and pubs, featuring local and national outlets. The attractive town square transforms into vibrant, colourful action on market days.The river is always near-by, offering beautiful walks through attractive parks. The outstanding Carlisle Park displays floral beauty all year round, including in its famous floral clock. Proudly featured in the centre of the park is a fine statue of local and national heroine of the suffragette movement, Emily Davison. Further upstream the park develops into a recreational area with bowling greens, a skateboard park, a multi-sports court, a play area and a paddling pool. This area of the park is also accessed via the Elliot bridge, right next to the Sports Centre with its swimming pool. Boating on the river, feeding of the ducks and crossing the river using the stepping-stones are timeless favourite nearby.
Morpeth is the County Town of Northumberland and its location in the centre of the county opens up innumerable delights for the holiday-maker. A short drive takes you to the thriving metropolis of Newcastle upon Tyne, the ancient market towns of Hexham and Alnwick and the more than sixty miles of unspoilt, sandy beaches, from Tynemouth in the south to Berwick near the border with Scotland. Each destination has its own story, told by the many castles and historical features that favour the landscape, alongside quaint harbours and working ports. Especially recommended are Alnmouth, Seahouses, Holy Island, Bamburgh, Amble, Newbiggin, Whitley Bay, Tynemouth and Berwick on the coast and Rothbury, Hexham, and Alnwick inland. Away from the trunk roads Northumberland’s roads are quiet, leading to unspoilt villages in the foothills of the Cheviots. Morpeth has an excellent bus and rail service. The bus station is a five-minute walk from The Hidden Cottage, while the railway station is ten. Both have taxi ranks. Public transport opens up a wide range of possibilities to tour the county. Trains on the East-Coast main-line stop at Morpeth, offering day-trips to the heart of Edinburgh, Berwick, Newcastle, York, and the picturesque old harbour-village of Alnmouth – the coastal route via Alnmouth and Berwick-upon-Tweed to Edinburgh is particularly stunning.
Once you’re away from the trunk-roads, Northumberland roads are uncongested, often sparsely so. With your base right in the centre of town you can head off in any direction. Dropping down to the coast using cycle-paths if you like, opens up the coastal cycle route to the north and south. Such is the scenery along the Northumberland coast that many return year after year to explore and enjoy it. The beaches are golden and never congested, the many castles are legendary, and the coastal villages picturesque. In-land takes you onto the more remote roads and lanes of Longhorsely Moor, towards Rothbury in the beautiful River Coquet valley via the Simonside Hills, and beyond into the even more remote areas of the Cheviot Hills. This is a hilly area and well worth visiting for the magnificent scenery as well as the strenuous exercise, if that’s to your liking. Options for the rambler are endless.
