A front garden with seating area faces south, with an 18th century packhorse bridge spanning the Whittle Burn to one side and to the other the graceful churchyard of St Mary the Virgin where the famous illustrator and engraver Thomas Bewick is buried. The area is rich in history and well served by its attractive surrounding landscape, ideal for walking and cycling. The holiday cottage is well suited for couples, families and friends. The ground floor is made up of a newly fitted dining kitchen with dishwasher, oven, washing machine and fridge and a living room with an inglenook fireplace. The house can sleep five people comfortably in two double bedrooms which can be made up with either twin or double facilities. The larger bedroom has a store-away bed which can be set up if required. Located next door to the old Ovingham village post office, Elmhurst was built in the 19th century as the postmistress’s house. It has been newly renovated as a holiday cottage and finished to a high standard. It features all the amenities required for a comfortable holiday break: from wood burning stove in the living room to an outdoor barbecue in the quiet, enclosed yard to the rear. It provides an ideal base for a gentle, relaxed break or a family adventure exploring the Tyne Valley and Northumberland. More

About the neighbourhood
THINGS TO DO AND PLACES TO VISIT The county of Northumberland extends north from the Tyne and the town of Hexham to the border town of Berwick at the mouth of the River Tweed. Ovingham is well placed to access a wide variety of rural landscapes from the unspoilt beaches of the north east coast to the Cheviot Hills, Kielder Forest and reservoir to the west. Stunning countryside is crossed by quiet roads and cycle routes, bridle ways and footpaths. This is a landscape rich not only in natural and ecological features but abounding in historical interest with very evident archeological and historical remains from the Roman to the Industrial periods. The shops of Newcastle and the Metrocentre are easily accessible by rail or road. Newcastle’s
