MR FOGG’S COTTAGE, CORBRIDGE

Planning a Valentine's Day getaway? Mr Fogg's cottage in Corbridge is a snug, rural hideaway, perfect for two...

Dating from 1640, Mr Fogg’s was originally a blacksmith’s house with his smithy next door and another small, adjacent cottage. The random stone walls were built with ancient rocks stolen from original Roman structures around the village and the bent oak ceiling beams date from the sixteenth century.

Over the years, the property changed into a single house, with the addition of the kitchen downstairs and a modern bathroom on the first floor. Today, it makes for sweet getaway – perfect for couples, or even close chums, wanting quality time spent in rural loveliness and charming surroundings. Original artwork hangs on every wall, carefully-selected fabrics enhance the tastefully-selected furniture and the country views are to-die-for.

After a tiring day exploring Northumberland, settle in in the living room; sink into one of the two sofas, relax in front of the wood-burning stove, enjoy a well-earned drink and listen to a CD or two, or watch your favourite TV shows, on the large smart TV.

The property’s fully-fitted kitchen comes equipped with everything you need to create romantic suppers and quick-fix lunches before afternoons spent exploring beautiful Corbridge. Think electric oven with induction hob, an Nespresso coffee machine, microwave, fridge and freezer, sink with adjacent dishwasher and a washing machine with dryer. Glassware, crockery and cutlery are all provided and you can feast in the cosy dining room.

Upstairs, you’ll discover two bedrooms. The master guarantees a peaceful nights’ sleep, offering up Egyptian cotton fitted sheets and duvet, plus a large wardrobe, stylish dressing table, full-length mirror, TV, CD player and Wi-Fi. The smaller double bedroom available is for children or occasional guests and guests can request two single beds.

Finally, pamper and rejuvenate in the modern bathroom, complete with large walk-in shower and double-ended freestanding bath.
