The location was excellent and the cottage was more luxurious, comfortable and well equipped than any other cottage we had rented in the past. Especially liked the complimentary toiletries and welcome pack, particularly the homemade cake.

Tips from a local
Visit Chillingham Castle for the day, a fortified 12th-century castle with lavish state rooms, torture chambers and a formal Italian garden. It is still home to Sir Humprey Wakefield and his family, so on Saturday’s is is kept closed. The Medieval Castle Team Room is open to non-visitors too, if you wanted to skip the castle tour. Private tours can be arranged also if you want the full castle experience! Chillingham Castle is less than 2 miles from Chatton, just 5 minutes in the car.
Tips from a local
Why not hop on the train to Edinburgh for the day? It is so easy to reach from Berwick station, it’s only 40 minutes on the train and you are in the centre of the city. Check out this great little blog on some of the best things to see and do in Edinburgh. Our favourites are discovering the warren of Edinburgh’s hidden streets at Mary King’s Close, having cocktails in the Juniper bar and heading up there for the Christmas markets from the middle of November.

“We love the location of Percy Cottage, which is in the heart of rural Northumberland in the village of Chatton. It is ideally located to explore both The Cheviots and The Coast in Northumberland. The Cheviots nestle up to the Scottish Border, the landscapes are awe-inspiring and surrounded by wildlife and wilderness, it won’t disappoint explorers!
The cottage has been lovingly renovated and is decorated in a myriad of neutral tones personalised with curios, antiques, soft textures and subtle lighting, which creates a cosy haven to retreat and plan your next days adventure!”
