About Walking Holiday Cottages

We operate our own self catering walking holiday cottages in Northumberland on the edge of the Cheviot Hills, and there are a number of long or short walks direct from the door that afford spectacular views and offer the opportunity to witness a wealth of wildlife.

Many of our guests are enthusiastic walkers, and we not only provide OS maps, but also printed leaflets and notes of our own on what to see along the way.

In late 2013 we created The Cottage Cooperative, which has a number of websites like this one to help guests find the exact type of cottage they want.  Cottages listed on our websites are owned by like-minded members who abide by a genuine code of advertising and are committed to offering a high quality service to guests.

For this reason there will never be hundreds of cottages on this website, but as members must agree to our standards before advertising, you should enjoy more peace of mind when booking.  We may well not yet have a cottage of the size you require in the area you want, but please check back as membership is growing slowly but surely.

All of the cottages in the Walking Holiday Cottages collection are are listed on this website not only because they have a good walks close by, but also on the understanding that each member must provide directions.

All you should have to do is arrive and walk!
