Little Ivy B&B
We are pleased to announce that we will be opening Little Ivy, sister property to The Bothy at Ivy Cottage this year (open May to end of September only).
Little Ivy offers Bed & Continental Breakfast accommodation situated in the lower ground floor of Ivy Cottage, with beautiful views across the countryside. Ivy Cottage was originally the Farm / Estate workers cottage for the Blenkinsopp Hall Estate. The original building is over 200 years old and has been sympathetically enlarged and renovated over the past 14 years, to create an attractive stone cottage in an enviable location.
The lower ground floor area consists of Double Bedroom, Bathroom and a handsomely appointed and comfortable living room area with log burner, large screen television and comfy sofas for your sole use. There is no kitchen facility available on site and therefore self-catering is not wholly possible. The breakfast area will have a kettle, Nespresso coffee machine, toaster and microwave, small fridge along with all the necessary cutlery and dishes available for your use. If you wish to purchase take-away, or pre-cooked food (which can be heated in the microwave) from our local supermarkets, which many guests often do. We are also surrounded by an abundance of excellent local restaurants, pubs/bistros etc.
Little Ivy also has its own private entrance to the property and access to a pretty garden with outdoor garden furniture to relax in on a warm day and a small summer house, which will allow you to enjoy the outdoors, even if the weather is not quite tropical! There is also a Webber BBQ on site for your use, weather permitting.
Fearga & Graham Wright live above in the ground floor/1st floor of the Cottage.
For those who enjoy star gazing, Northumberland is the place to be – with little light pollution, the clear night skies are magical and the Bothy & Little Ivy are located in the heart of some of the best Dark Sky Night skies where you can view the Plough, Orion’s Belt or the Milky Way up close and personal from one of our onsite telescopes.
Fishing – No matter what kind of fishing inspires you, from steams to rivers and coasts, The Bothy and Little Ivy are surrounded by, and within a reasonable distance of, some of the best fishing in the County. We can put you in touch with our local fishing guide, who will advise you on every aspect to ensure you get the best experience possible.
