Property Details

The Space
Percy Cottage has a cosy living room with dark navy walls, a leather corner sofa and a log burner. The perfect place to enjoy a quiet night in, you turn on the flat screen TV to watch Freeview and snuggle up with your loved ones.

The kitchen diner features pale green walls and wood panelling to create a tranquil feel and fresh look. Fully equipped for self-catering stays, you’ll have everything you could need to prepare meals easily.

The cottage has two beautifully designed bedrooms. Both bedrooms feature king size beds and premium bed linens to ensure you have the best sleep possible.

Head to the family bathroom and you’ll find a quirky space with sloped ceilings, clashing print tiles and a skylight window. A WC, vanity unit and bath with overhead shower complete the room.

Host & Stay are committed to our owners that their homes are protected during guest bookings. For this reason, we require all our guests to transfer a Damage Deposit (refundable, subject to an administration charge) or, to purchase an Accidental Damage Waiver which will cover you for up to £500.00 of accidental damage during your stay.

Neighborhood
Percy Cottage is located in the quaint village of Otterburn in Northumberland. Located on the banks of the River Rede, it’s the perfect place to explore the Redesdale valley. You’ll find a number of pubs and restaurants throughout the village so you can enjoy delicious pub lunches and quiet evening meals. There are also a number of shops throughout the village including Otterburn Mill.

Otterburn is located in Northumberland National Park which is the least populated and least visited of all National Parks in England and Wales. It is also the most northerly and the most remote from large urban areas. During your visit, you may see native red squirrels, roe deer and a whole host of reptiles amongst many others!

Northumberland National Park also forms part of Europe’s largest area of protected night sky known as the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park. This is 572 square miles of protected sky where on a clear night, you can see millions of stars. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along one of the long distance moorland trails or cycle through the quiet wilderness. Horse ride through one of the many bridleways or get ready to sweat on a mountain bike blaze. Climb one of the challenging crags or paddle through a pristine river in a canoe. You won’t get bored of things to do!

Getting Around
The closest train stations to Otterburn are Haydon Bridge and Hexham, which are roughly 17 miles away. A number of connecting routes can also be found from these stations so getting to other locations around the UK could not be easier.

There are a number of bus routes through Otterburn. Hop on the 131 route which travels to Newcastle Airport and Newcastle Haymarket bus station.

Great location and well presented house<br/><br/>Minor quirks like having to pay insurance the day before the trip and not being told about this during booking. Simple touches like milk, coffee pods, matches, paper to light fire. Otherwise top marks

Beautiful cosy cottage the attention to detail with a beautiful mix of soft furnishings was amazing. Lovely warm log burner made it a wonderful place to stay. Would highly recommend ?<br/><br/>It was simply perfect couldn't fault it.

Gregg

Good location to wedding venues and nice quiet village in middle of nowhere<br/><br/>The shower is hard to get the right temperature and not enough hot water for 4 people, boiler had a over heat warning and property owners not willing to help just said wait an hour ending up fixing it our self’s (reset boiler warning)

Jessie

05/03/2024

Overall a great place to stay. I was in the area for a wedding and this was the perfect location, a quick walk from the venue. It was well decorated and had everything we needed. Fit 4 people comfortably in the 2 bedrooms. I managed to fix the hot water with the instructions they gave for resetting the boiler. The hosts had a professional come double check within a few hours to ensure it worked as well. I’d recommend if attending a wedding in the area.

Clare

Lovely cottage, perfect for our stay. Well equipped kitchen, lovely sitting room with log burner. <br/>Two good sized bedrooms with an additional room which we used as a dressing room to get ready for the wedding we were attending in the village. Bathroom had a great shower, plenty of hot water. Really enjoyed our stay. Would definitely stay again.

Nicoll

Gorgeous cottage and great for a short stay for local weddings. Check in is easy with a lockbox. Cottage was relatively clean but very dusty in some places, some bits are broken etc.

Sam

04/02/2024

Great cosy cottage for a February weekend. Location is in walking distance to the pub, shop and cafe. <br/>A few downsides however, the cottage has very steep stairs, some items in the kitchen were not cleaned from previous occupants and it is next to a loud road although it isn't overly busy with traffic. We were dissapointed that the heating had been switched off for our arrival, the temperature was only 10 degrees and with a 5 month old baby this was unacceptable, it took until late on the first evening to get back to a reasonable temperature. Communication with the host on this issue was poor.

Sue

28/01/2024

This was a beautiful house in a very friendly village. Unfortunately we had an issue which could happen to anyone in that the boiler decided to break. The owners contacted us as soon as we reported it and were amazing sorting out alternative accomodation and making it a wonderful weekend

Samantha

We booked Percy Cottage last minute as we decided to get away over New Year. We travelled with our two children and from the moment we walked through the door we felt at home. The decor is fab and we loved the property’s quirkiness. It’s a bit far out from the places we usually like to visit but the drives are always scenic - it’s not like encountering the M62 to be able to get out for the day! We’ll definitely return to Percy Cottage.

Michelle

27/12/2023

What a beautiful property! The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed to make a full Christmas dinner (they even provided the Christmas tree), the log burner was brilliant after a rainy walk locally and overall just a lovely place.<br/>My 2 things I would just note: the stairs in the property are pretty steep if you are travelling with children or have mobility issues and there is no flexibility with regafamily to check in due to their cleaning schedule so make sure you leave a little later or have a table booked at William de Percy across the road until you can get in at 4pm.<br/>Overall though fantastic little property and would definitely stay again!

Location was fantastic for having a wedding in the village

Nick

15/10/2023

The purpose of our stay was for a family wedding at the Hall just outside the village. The location was ideal and the checking in was smooth. The cottage was nice and well equipped. However, I'm afraid to say that our stay was spoiled by the cleanliness of the place. The bathroom had large amounts of black mould around the bath and shower head. The sink is very small and blocks up even with the plug open. This put my wife and daughter off using the shower and we had to go to the wedding venue to shower and change. <br/>Also there were cobwebs in the second bedroom, the grill pan and mesh were greasy, as was the door handle to the kitchen. <br/>At £518 for two nights, I would have expected a better standard.

James

Excellent Location and pub and restaurant nearby

Sean

We stayed at Percy Cottage for a wedding take place at the Le Petit Chateau, which is a five minute walk away. The cottage is stylishly decorated, well furnished, with comfortable large king size beds, the back bedroom was nice and quiet. The hosts very kindly provided coffee which was a nice touch. Hosts ‘stay’ were extremely responsive and clear with instructions. If you’re in need of accommodation in the area, I would have no hesitation recommended Percy cottage.

What a fantastic place! We absolutely loved it and it felt like home (&better). The place is nicely decorated and the kitchen is fully equipped. Probably the only mattresses I've found outside of home that did not ruin my back. Traffic makes the master bedroom a bit loud in the morning, but it is not intolerable (unless you're a light sleeper). All in all would definitely return and I can't wait to give their other locations a try as well. Thank you!

Lovely cottage situated approx 5minute walk from ‘Le Petit Château’ where we were attending a wedding. <br/><br/>The cottage is beautifully decorated throughout in a stunningly quirky but cosy theme. The property was lovely and clean. <br/><br/>I particularly liked the dressing room which was a handy space for getting ready for wedding.<br/><br/>I didn’t like the fact we couldn’t enjoy it longer! We were looking forward to making use of the cosy fire but we didn’t have the time. <br/><br/> Only suggestion would be to look at improving the lighting in the dressing room.

We stayed for the weekend with our 1 year old daughter and small dog and had a great time. Lovey cottage, clean and decorated beautifully. Has everything you could need (apart from a high chair - we had to bring ours which wasn’t ideal). Location is great - walking distance to all amenities in the village (pub, shop, cafe, wedding venue). There is also a village circular 3 mile walk on the doorstep which isn’t too difficult if you like walking. <br/>Some people had mentioned the noise from the main road. This would be an issue if you are a light sleeper, but a pair or ear plugs would do the job. Others have also mentioned the noisy pipes, this was an issue for us as it was fairly cold at night so had to keep the heating on low during the night for the baby, and she was disturbed several times by the noisy heating pipes, which are quite loud in the back bedroom. Obviously can’t be helped, but something to be aware of. <br/>Overall a great stay and would come again.

absolutely fantastic cottage.<br/>the décor is amazing.<br/>very well thought out with attention to detail.<br/>We booked this cottage as we were attending a two day wedding at Woodhill Hall and it all worked out extremely well.<br/>The added bonus of a dressing room was fabulous.<br/>Beautiful surroundings, perfect location.

Ciara

Cottage was beautifully decorated. Comments on the noisy road was very true and being an old building the pipes etc made a lot of noise in the back bedroom as well.<br/><br/>Had read a review that the garden was not secure as not attached to house. Since this was why we had booked as 2 dogs I checked a few days before and sent a screen shot of the actual review. I was assured it was secure but they failed to mention not attached and the lane was attached to the busy main road. This was very inconvenient for us as had to put dogs on lead to take to garden and the lock was broken so someone has to stand and hold the gate shut.<br/><br/>Bath didn’t drain after being filled so we couldn’t have a shower on the last day. <br/><br/>However the area is lovely and as I say the decor and attention to detail ok the surface is beautiful. Just a few things to make it perfect.

Abigail

The cottage was perfect for our stay, it was clean, cosy and warm with great style! The location was perfect for us checking out Otterburn ahead of our wedding this year. The property had everything you could need and was perfect for our dog.<br/><br/>It was missing a welcome hamper and basics such as milk and butter.

beautifully decorated and furnished<br/><br/>no sign of hospitality of any type in terms of a welcome pack, an info folder, wood for wood burner. it just felt that there was no form of welcome.

Jen

Beautiful property, decor and facilities were perfect<br/><br/>Messaged twice prior to staying regarding the constant emails I was receiving about completing ‘pre-stay vetting’ and particularly the £25/10 damage waiver that specifically states on the booking page is a £10 refundable deposit. It isn’t! I messaged twice and received no response other than automated emails asking me for the fee. Then when I had paid as the emails threatened a cancellation- I had no details about how to access the property- had to call on the morning to get these. Very frustrating and disappointing given the price of the booking. <br/>Also check out is really early

We had a lovely stay in this cottage. We needed to get away with our puppy whilst our kitchen was getting renovated! It was in a good location, really good local pub with excellent food, close to kielder for good walks! The cottage was really modern, comfy bed and furniture! Cosy on a night time to relax and chill! Clean modern kitchen to make your own meals also! Perfect for the two of us and our Labrador polly! Would definitely return next summer for a mini break! Thankyou.

We had such a nice time down at Percy Cottage! Was exactly what we expected! Cottage is decorated absolutely beautifully, and felt so cosy! It is pet friendly but is a bit unsafe as the gated garden isn’t attached to the house, but plenty of walks around the surrounding area. Only negative is how far away it is from supermarkets so ensure you have enough food with you. There is a lovely little shop just a few doors up for juice and firewood!

Lynne

29/03/2022

Percy Cottage is a gorgeous old stone house, full of charm, the interior decoration is fabulous. Its modern without being too new and the log fire is just lovely for having a cosy night in. <br/>The cottage was spotlessly clean, the heating was on for our arrival, the shower hot and all the cooking facilities you might need are there! The location is good, nice walks with the dogs and the local shop was open until fairly late which is unusual for a village, and the staff there were extremely friendly.<br/><br/>nothing, it was amazing.

Lovely stylish cosy property which is very well equipped. We enjoyed our stay and used it as a base to visit the Kielder Forest, Hexham, Amble, Warkworth and the coastal villages. Just a shame that it is on the main road and you can hear the traffic at night. The William De Percy Restaurant is good and just a short walk away but best to book ahead.

Lovely cottage, clean and felt v homely. Perfect for a walk to the pub or shop if needed and we used it as a base for walks, went to Kielder Water and also over to the coast (Bamburgh and Alnmouth/Alnwick for day trips). The cottage was perfect and really nice decor

Mark

Margaret

Great stay at Percy Cottage, everything very clean, beds comfortable, check in and out easy. Otterburn is a good spot to get different locations in Northumberland,, there is a good pub/restaurant and a well stocked local shop. Slight downside is the cottage is on quite a busy road and can be a bit noisy, especially in the morning.

Andrew

Lovely cottage in a great location.

Mark

14/08/2021

Well furnished and immaculately decorated property with a touch of class about it. Ideal location to access the best of Northumberland from coast to the moors of the national park.<br/>Garden is a lovely little sun trap but not so ideal for those who have dogs as isn’t fully enclosed to the back door and with being near a relatively fast road you can’t just let the dog out the back without supervision.

Ellie

We had a fantastic time, the cottage is beautiful. Lovely village location. Great pub and small shop in walking distance. Would definitely stay again.

My friends and I had a beautiful holiday and are happy for our selection. The place is immaculate! The communication was great and the check in process really smooth. Everything was really clean and the decoration of the place is pretty nice. There is enough room for a family or two couples and the neighbourhood is super nice and not noisy. You can certainly enjoy moments of peace and tranquility in this listing. The kitchen was superb and you can cook pretty much everything you want. Also, you can certainly enjoy watching a movie using the provided facilities. Highly recommended and the walks nearby can be spectacular.<br/><br/>Kind regards <br/>Kostas
