About Faith's Cottage

Faith’s Cottage is a gorgeous dog-friendly stone cottage nestling in the peaceful Northumbrian countryside, ten miles from Morpeth, in the hamlet of Longwitton. With space for eight guests in four bedrooms and three stables on site, there is space for everyone in your family, even your favourite four-legged members (two dogs are welcome in the cottage and more can be accepted providing they are happy to live in the heated dog-kennel with run).

Northumberland is a fantastic holiday destination, particularly if you love being outside. The landscape is breathtaking with beautiful stretches of rugged countryside and golden sandy beaches. Faith’s Cottage is close to the Simonside Hills, nestled between the Northumberland National Park and the coast, with an excellent variety of footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes nearby. The beach is half an hour’s drive away with Druridge Bay, Cambois, Cresswell and Lynmouth Bay all being within 20 miles of the cottage. Kielder Water and Forest Park is less than an hour's drive, offering plenty of activities including family-friendly nature trails. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is also within reach but make sure you check the tide times as it is only accessible by boat or causeway.

Hadrian’s Wall is one of Northumberland’s biggest attractions and only approximately half an hour drive. Constructed in 122 CE to separate the Roman territory in England from the Pictish lands in Scotland, it is a magnificent ruin with a fascinating history. Chester’s Roman Fort and Museum in Chollerford is an excellent place to see the wall up close, as is the Housesteads Roman Fort and Museum at Haydon Bridge near Hexham, and there are the ruins of a Roman town at Corbridge.

The Metro Centre (for those who like shopping) and Alnwick Castle are around half an hour from Faith’s Cottage. Alnwick Castle was well known even before it was used to portray Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films, and later in Downton Abbey, and has been owned by the Percy family for over 700 years. It’s an excellent attraction offering a full day of fun for the whole family. Alnwick is a charming market town with a great choice of shops, museums, galleries and places to eat. Slightly further afield are Warkworth Castle, Dunstanburgh Castle and Bamburgh Castle.

Faith’s Cottage is the perfect holiday cottage in Northumberland, providing a high standard of accommodation that warmly welcomes families, dogs and horses. Centrally located, the cottage makes it easy to relax and enjoy all of the best Northumberland attractions.

Accommodation Comprises:


  • You will feel at home from the moment you step foot into the welcoming entrance hall.
  • Spacious sitting room with large sofas where everyone can relax and chat around the electric 'wood effect' stove or watch television. Exposed beams, stone walls and oak floor offer the perfect amount of rustic charm, while still being stylish and comfortable.
  • Sunny conservatory providing a second living room where parents can escape for a peaceful drink and enjoy the views of the garden.
  • The farmhouse kitchen is the beating heart of the home. A wood burning stove makes it feel cosy even on the most bitter winter day, while the long wooden dining table easily seats eight people - perfect for long suppers chatting about the days adventures. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, electric oven and stove. Windows overlook the Simonside Hills.

  • Another double bedroom with king-sized bed. This room also has exposed beams, a dressing table and chest of drawers, bedside tables and reading lights.
