West Longridge self-catering cottages are securely tucked away on our family farm but mercifully out of earshot, offering a perfect holiday retreat! If you fancy a country idyll - your own Lark Rise/Candleford, with all the luxury of mod cons including wet rooms, 32” flat screen TVs, etc. - look no further!
Welcome to Longridge Farm Cottages the ideal place to spend a relaxing and comfortable break near Berwick-upon-Tweed. Set on our working family farm in rolling Northumbrian countryside West Longridge is centrally located for a host of activities. Just 4 miles west of the historic market town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, the charming stone-built cottages, have been decorated and furnished to high standards with particular attention paid to the design and furnishings, resulting in very attractive accommodation in this beautiful area. A warm welcome is assured, with afternoon tea provided on arrival.
The cottages enjoy panoramic views of the Cheviot Hills, and acres of beautiful countryside. They are open all year and even out of season are the ideal winter and early season retreat with their open fires and cosy soft furnishings. Adults and children alike will be fascinated by the pet llamas - Rowan and Mika. The friendly working collies are ever welcoming and George the rooster will sound your early morning call.
The cottages are ideally situated for enjoying the Northumberland coast, Holy and Farne Islands, Cheviot Hills and the Scottish Borders, with the advantage of being just one hours' drive from both Edinburgh and Newcastle.
Our mission is to provide Comfort and Cleanliness, which we make our priority. Each house is supplied with bed linen and each bed has a duvet and two pillows per person. Towels (1 bath and 1 hand per person booked - guests are requested to bring their own beach towels), tea towels, dish-cloths, dusters, a starter set of toilet rolls and cleaning agents are provided. The fuel is provided for the open fire and every house has a fuel allocation. We consider this a fair way of pricing - you the customer, are getting the best price possible and not subsiding other weeks.
There is a children's play area incorporating, swings, slides and playhouse. We request that children are supervised whilst using this area.
The cottages are 2½ miles from the nearest local Post Office and shops at East Ord. Berwick-upon-Tweed is only 4½ miles away has a good selection of supermarkets, shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a sports centre with swimming pool and arts centre. The long, sandy, Northumbrian beaches, such as Cocklawburn and Bamburgh, are only a few miles away.
There are a large number of country houses nearby, which are open to the public including Paxton House and Manderston. Floors Castle at Kelso, and Alnwick Castle (the location for the
'Harry Potter' movie) both make interesting day-trips. Children will enjoy Heatherslaw Mill with its narrow gauge railway or feeding the animals at Conundrum Farm Trail.
Berwick is situated in the Borders of Scotland and England and is famous for its unique Elizabethan walls and the splendid views of the town from 'Megs Mount' and 'Brass Bastion'.
Within easy reach are the Cheviots, which offer exceptional hill walking, the Farne Islands where seals and large numbers of seabirds are resident plus some excellent SCUBA diving.
