Situated just a couple of miles south of Alnwick in Hampeth, Dexter Cottage is in a terrace of former miners’ cottages, originally built for the workers at Whittle Colliery.

Recently renovated in 2019, it boasts a really tranquil space that we ourselves love spending time in; a genuine home from home.

With its location adjacent to the A1, the major road route through Northumberland, Dexter Cottage makes an ideal base for exploring both coast and country, and everything in between.

Location

Shilbottle, England, United Kingdom

Northumberland is the most beautiful county to visit and explore; from the Heritage Coastline and abundance of castles and beaches, to the rugged countryside of the National Park. Visit the bustling harbour towns of Seahouses and Amble and sample the local fish and chips, or venture inland to the traditional market town of Rothbury in the heart of the countryside.

At only five miles away, Alnwick Castle & Gardens is the closest attraction to Dexter's Cottage. The castle itself featured as a backdrop for two of the Harry Potter films, while the magnificent gardens attract visitors from all over the world.

Such is the convenience of the A1, the North East's major city, Newcastle upon Tyne, is only 30 miles away; even Scotland's capital of Edinburgh can be reached in a couple of hours by car, which makes for a great trip in itself.
