Riding Cottage is a 4 Star Gold Cottage and the first holiday cottage we created.

The Cottage

Riding Cottage has a relaxed spacious open plan country style, with wood burning stove, comfy chairs & sofas along with games, books & DVD's - ideal to relax with a glass of something after a busy day! Fully equipped with high quality furnishings, little extras, fully equipped kitchen & Free Wi-Fi.

Riding Cottage sleeps up to 4 people over 2 stunning bedrooms, which both enjoy en-suite facilities & exposed beams. Both bedrooms have zip and link system beds so they can easily be set up as either king-sized beds or twin singles.

Outside the cottage you can enjoy the private and secure patio garden which is real sun spot!  There is also ample free parking.


Lots of guests add a farmhouse breakfast to make their stay extra special.  Or why not order your evening meals? These can be provided when ordered in advance. There is a fully fitted kitchen so you can of course self-cater here too.

The cottage was spotless with comfortable sofas and beds, a well appointed kitchen and a very home from home atmosphere

Louise at Riding Farm is an excellent hostess. I was made to feel at home immediately upon arrival. The cottage accommodation is excellent and location tremendous. My future choice between a standard hotel or Riding Farm ...No competition!!!

Excellent very clean & friendly accommodation. Will definitely use again even though we have family living in Newcastle

3rd time on business at the Riding great place to stay near enough for all you could need but far enough away to be peaceful. Fantastic hosts.

Super Cottage hope to return again soon everything you could think of has been done thank you

Such a warm and comfy bed, great shower, lovely breakfast, worth the extra. Lovely people, great view, warm welcome -  thank you.
