The Old School
Recommended by Karen, this 18thcentury stone property is set in beautiful gardens just a few miles' drive from the Northumberland coast. Its three luxurious bedrooms are comfortingly homely and guests also have access to a sitting room with books, maps and guides as well as a TV and DVD player.
