Where is the nearest pub?
The Queens Head at Glanton or Tankerville Arms at Eglingham, both 7 – 10 minutes drive away.
Is there a good restaurant nearby?
There are many restaurants, country inns, cafes and bistro’s in the surrounding villages and in Alnwick itself. The Tankerville Arms at Eglingham is a scenic seven minutes drive from Ingram and is a characterful coaching inn offering good interesting Northumbrian food. You can eat in the bar or the restaurant and children are welcome.
Where are the cottages in relation to one another?
We have eight cottages scattered around our peaceful mature grounds. Please look at the cottages ‘site plan’ which you can find under Your Stay. The aerial drone footage on our home page also shows the setting.
Can I park outside the cottage?
Yes, there is ample parking beside each of the properties.
Can I walk directly out from the cottages?
Quiet country lanes, open access land by the river Breamish (also a Site of Special Scientific Interest) and an excellent choice of Public Footpaths, Bridleways and Permissive Footpaths lead directly from the cottages. In your cottage you will find a file containing fourteen printed illustrated walks most starting from Cheviot Holiday Cottages. There are also a collection of walking guides describing walks in the area and along the Heritage Coastline.
How far is it to Alnwick and the beaches?
Alnwick Town lies twenty minutes drive to the east. All of North Northumberland’s beautiful beaches are within thirty to forty minutes drive from Ingram and part of the excitement is to explore the numerous quiet country lanes and villages on the way there and back!
Do I have to take out cancellation insurance?
Although we do not make it compulsory, as a good many guests already have their own, we do strongly recommend it to cover you in the event of having to cancel. For those who do not, we can suggest you contact PJ Hayman on 02392 419843

Do you accept dogs?

The properties we accept well behaved dogs are Bluebell Byre, Barley Mill and Honeysuckle Cottage. There is an external water tap and hose in the courtyard and also a warm hand held external shower available for your dog and located in the main stable courtyard adjacent to rectory drive gates.
