Overview

These cottages, in the grounds of The Old Rectory, a quarter of a mile north of the village of Wark.Built by Greenwich Hospital at the end of the Napoleonic Wars. The coach house provided stabling and accommodation to house the coachman and horses used by Naval Chaplains.The tranquil setting provides a fine base for walking and visiting a rich selection of places, including The Roman Wall-6 miles, Kielder Water-16 miles and with the Northumbrian National Park on the doorstep. Both the East coast and the Lake District are within easy reach-with miles of beaches stretching up to Lindisfarne and on to the Borders. The cities of Newcastle, Durham, York and Edinburgh are eminently accessible.

The conversion combines comfort with practicality without jeopardising certain original features which have been retained, so whilst you may enjoy the area you have peace and your own space to return to.

Great Place to Stay


Steve P, Aberdeen, United Kingdom
We picked this as a last minute holiday and I have to say that it was worth every penny. The location is excellent and well within walking distance of Wark. We could get to the pub in less than 10 minutes. Ideally suited if you are wanting to explore this area and is 60mins from Bamburgh and Alnwick; and 30mins from the Metro Centre. I have two small criticisms; the shower in the bath is useless so be prepared to have a bath rather than a shower; and secondly on no account should you turn off the cooker hood at the wall switch; as this also turns off the fridge. Other than that the cottage is well equipped; comfortable; safe and secure; and a great place to escape from life. P.s. The O2 signal in this area is non existent but wi-if is free so make sure you use Tu-Go or Whatsapp if you want to call or text.

Excellent Value Break


bluekwak,
Meeting friends from Scotland we met half way in Kielder. I arranged a two bedroomed cottage and chose the Stable at Wark. What a stunning location. It is not well signposted from the road but it nestles on the outskirts of Wark behind the Church. Convenient to Kielder and other tourist spots in the area it is great for wildlife; otters in the local river and osprey on the Kielder reservoir. The cottage is cosy and well presented. We couldn't fault it. Certainly large enough for two couples and a small child. More than this would have been a struggle but as it's only advertised as for four you can't say you weren't warned!
