♥ What we love that makes Coldburn special…..
- The walled garden surrounded by trees makes it very private.
- The stream running through the garden for children and adults alike to enjoy.
- A garden full of birds, and lots of other wildlife right on the doorstep.
Can’t recall how many times we have visited the valley, but each time is like the first wonderful stay. We love the peace and the quietness, we love the wildlife, many birds, hares, deer and a very special barn owl sighting. Walks in the valley are spectacular – the dogs are very tired!
The cottage is always warm and cosy and the College Valley team always make sure it is super clean and welcoming. Many, many thanks to you all. We have been feeding the birds this week to help them get ready for winter. See you again soon Coldburn.
Our ninth visit to College Valley and our second stay at Coldburn Cottage – our holidays here never disappoint.
The cottage, as always, was beautifully presented and spotlessly clean in arrival. Everything you could possibly need is provided so “thank you”! The addition of wi-fi is much appreciated too.
We’ve had some wonderful walks this week and even the weather has been kind.
Can recommend the Market Tavern in Alnwick and the Lord Crewe in Bamburgh for food and the welcome received.
This is Roscoe’s favourite place on the planet!!
Thanks again…..we’ll be back!
What a wonderful cottage. Fabulous scenery and peace and quiet. We had a really lovely stay in the College Valley for our daughters wedding. It was all perfect. Thank you for just making our stay so comfortable and welcoming. Loved it all.
Our third visit to Coldburn and it’s just as lovely as the first, if not lovlier. Thank you to Ros for making this cottage so spotlessly clean and welcoming. As ever, far too short a visit but our main purpose this time was a re-ascent of Cheviot as part of a challenge to climb to all the highest points of the National Parks – Cheviot was the last and was, predictably in cloud/mix of wild and beautifully sunny autuminal weather which makes the hills glow, and all the rain made the river crossings on walks extra fun!!
Fitted in a visit to Hay Farm to see the incredible Clydesdale horses, such a friendly place and the horses are magnificent. College Valley has a very special place in our hearts and again we are bereft at having to leave the beauty, solitude and utter peace……we’re trying to bottle it before we get in the car!!!
Meant also to say, how helpful and informative the boom of information is on the history of the valley, particularly all the plane crashes. We’ve never taken the time to read about the valley in detail before and it’s even more interesting now that we have, thank you for making the effort to do that! And if we weren’t already well and truly married ages ago, we’d definitely do it here if we had our time again!
A better than perfect way to relax and rejuvenate, the feeling of wilderness and peace surrounds you at Coldburn Cottage. Everything here to make you comfortable; didn’t want for anything. Changeable weather added to the joy of it all……keeps you on your toes. In the space of one week we had swum in the North Sea at Bamburgh in glorious sunshine and tramped the Cheviot Hils in waterproofs with the wind gusting around us. We are returning home better people. Thank-you.
Awesome. Comfortable. Warm. Stunning views and walks. Me happy. Dogs happy. Will all come again soon 😊
Thank you to Ros Harris and Mr and Mrs Iveson for keeping the cottage so lovely and inviting, beautifully clean and being so helpful with a last-minute booking!
Coldburn is an absolute haven of peace surrounded by stunning scenery even when the rain monsooned down for 2 days, the sounds of the now torrents of water rushing over the waterfall were wonderful. Very sorry to leave. Thanks to all concerned for the chance to stay in such a beautiful place.
The weather has been glorious, a bonus. We have had a wonderful time. Monty the dog thought he had gone to heaven, burn and big garden.
The valley is beautiful and the cottage so comfortable. I will be back.
Traveling by Car:
From the South:
Leave the A1 for the A697 north of Morpeth, signed for Coldstream. Stay on the road until a couple of miles north of Wooler; at Akeld buildings there is a left turn signposted to Kirknewton and Yetholm. Turn left and follow the road for three miles. Go through Kirknewton and over the little bridge, just after the bridge there are some cottages on the left. At the end of the cottages turn left, signposted to Hethpool.
From the North:
Take the A697 south from the A68. Cross the bridge into England at Coldstream and through Cornhill and Crookham. South of Crookham take the second right – soon after the left to Ford Castle – Go past Flodden and over a cross roads, pass several buildings on your left and at the bottom of a hill where the road swings round to the right turn left, which is actually going straight on. Cross the river and when you come to a T-junction turn left. Follow the road past Kilham until you come to a row of cottages on the right, immediately before the cottages turn right signposted Hethpool.
The Valley is not easily accessed by public transport, however the East Coast mainline stations of Alnmouth and Berwick are within easy travelling distance. Regular bus services are available to Wooler from each station, and, if willing to continue, a bus can be caught to Kirknewton. From there you would have roughly an hours walk to the Valley.
