Following the damage in December 2022, we have refurbished the property throughout and tweaked the layout of bathrooms and bedrooms to make The Old Workshop an ideal space to explore Northumberland from…

Sitting Room

The comfortable sofas are a great place to relax and unwind, enjoying the warmth of the log burning stove (fuel for this is included). Or maybe you would prefer watching a film on the Smart TV with a glass of the local tipple in hand?

Dining Area

The large dining table seats six, giving guests plenty of space to gather around for a relaxed holiday supper. Or for wet and windy days, a place to play a board game from the selection in the cottage. 


With a new layout, the kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, oven, hob, microwave, slow cooker, kettle, toaster and plenty of cutlery and crockery. A full inventory is listed in the House Manual if you would like to check what we provide.

King Bedroom

A comfortable king-sized bed with reading lamps on tables to either side and views to the garden area. A wardrobe and dressing table provide plenty of space to house your holiday wear.

Bedding, linen and towels are provided within the rental cost.

En Suite

Off the king-sized bedroom, there is an en-suite shower room comprising of rainfall and adjustable shower heads, basin and loo. A heated towel rail and light up vanity mirror complete the space.

Twin/Super-king Bedroom

This room can now either be set up in twin or superking configuration – please specify on the booking form as the default layout is twin beds. This makes the property ideal for friends as there is the flexibility to accommodate various group dynamics.

A bright and airy room with two full-sized single beds, each of which has its own bedside table and reading lamp. Again, with wardrobe and dressing table.

Single Bedroom

A quiet space for one overlooking the garden with a small double bed – a little more wriggle room! Bedside table with reading lamp and a freestanding wardrobe.


This large and bright  bathroom accommodates a bath, separate walk-in shower enclosure with rainfall and adjustable shower heads, basin and loo. Again, with heated towel rail and light up vanity mirror. 


Hidden away behind the cottage is a private courtyard with neatly tended beds. The garden can be accessed from the dining area and has outdoor seating, tables and a barbecue for those warmer evenings. A super spot to sit, read and relax.
