A stunning, Grade II listed detached property dating from 1826, set in the Borders village of Rochester near Kielder Forest. Sympathetically converted to a very high standard, and formerly a Presbyterian church, this Rochester cottage offers character accommodation for a family or group of friends seeking a holiday to remember.
The spacious, open plan ground floor consists of a large galley-style kitchen, a dining area and a unique sitting area with comfortable sofas set around the original pulpit and toasty woodburner. A pretty family bedroom and cloakroom complete the ground floor of this Rochester cottage.
The first floor gallery level consists of a panelled parapet housed on square corniced columns around three sides of the room. The two comfortable, first floor bedrooms each come with their own staircase, plus the master room boasts it’s own en-suite, walk-in shower room and seating area, which overlooks the ground floor.
After a day exploring the beautiful neighbouring countryside, this historical, welcoming Rochester cottage will be waiting for your return, where you can stoke up the woodburner, curl up on the cosy sofas, and embrace the ambience of this wonderful old church.
Set in the centre of the Northumberland National Park, there is something to suit everyone, with endless country walks and cycle routes nearby, and just a short drive away, Kielder Water, the largest man-made lake in Northern Europe, provides a multitude of water-based activities. A little further, but still within easy reach, are the delights of the Heritage Coastline, Hadrian's Wall and the Scottish Borders. This Rochester cottage is a perfectly positioned base for exploring Northumberland all year round.
