'Welcome' Home To A Whole House Share/Self-Cater

Ad ref# 529014

This is a delightful terraced Countryside Cottage with a traditional front lawn garden and rear gravel garden, which is useful for entertaining on sunny mornings-to-evenings and for small barbeques/outdoor space with garden furniture, fire pit and fairy lights.

Perfect for professional or person relocating to the area. We have limited dates available for Winter- Spring 2024 short term Holiday Lets (please email for details due to high demand).

There is ample off-road parking with considerate use*. A secure Garage is available, by separate agreement. Space for outdoor clothing storage / a bike can be used. It is a fully alarmed, safe and secure, happy home.

It is a household for working Professionals, not partygoers or students seeking adventure, games or gaming 24/7. The Cottage has a tranquil atmosphere hence why it works for Professionals who may work unsociable hours, or need extra rest or green space to relax. We immediately back onto great fields for Woodland walks and views of Cheviot / Moors.

The Cottage is less than 300 metres from the bus stop(s) to Alnwick / Berwick / Newcastle, where the nightlife is admittedly better; but here is a great sanctuary after work. Bus accessibility in the area for commuting/sight-seeing is very good. It is also c. 2 miles to train links on East Coast main line (25 mins Newcastle/50 mins Edinburgh/3.5 hours London), and the very gorgeous beaches of Alnmouth/Amble Harbour.

The Cottage is in the traditional part of the village near to the pretty St James' Church. The Village has a sociable Community Hall with events/activities, skateboard park, private Gym (as well as c. 1 mile to Willowburn Leisure Centre), 2 Shops, Chemist/Post Office, Restaurant, and a Pub/The Running Fox coffee shop.

Supermarkets in the area deliver groceries to the door. Our closest Suermarkets are Marks & Spencer's Food Hall, Turnbulls Butchers, Sainsbury's & Aldi. Co-Op Lidl, and Morrisons, plus independent/artisan producers are also nearby.

Online Shopping (including deposit to a safe place at the Cottage) is also available. Please note that ordinary mail post is strictly to a postbox at the Alnwick depot for our privacy and convenience.

The Cottage is fully-furnished, and we would like to share with someone who is a happy and confident individual, and who is an appreciative/caring person.

Food/Meals are own responsibility/by mutual consent. There is a Galley kitchen with all crockery, utensils and dishwasher provided. There is an upstairs reading-Dining area /downstairs Living room (with large fireplace) to share for meals and socialisation. Some household sundries are also included for convenience.

High quality Bedding/Linen/Towels are provided, but welcome to bring your own. Please note that you are responsible for own laundry (with wash machine, line or drier available, & steam generator iron for use) and for own room vacuuming / cleaning. These services can be performed for you, at a small additional cost.

All utilities/service bills are included. However any Telephone (or private landline/internet home working - with set up and usage costs) are your own responsibility.

WiFi, Internet (all areas), & Amazon Prime - Fire TV (downstairs) are included (although Movie/other media purchases are by additional pre-approved limits/method of payment).

Deposit is refundable (waived only by prior agreement) in full provided terms, rent, keys returned, cleaning/inventory completed, and own bills are fully discharged.

Pre Reservation of Room is only accepted when min 50% of rent is paid in advance. Some flexibility with arrival date, but 'no show' means deposit is forfeited.

Rent is payable in advance PCM, preferably by Bank transfer or other agreed method. Receipt is provided.

Notice period is strictly as per payment to rent pcm (i. e. 4 weeks advance notice), unless other specific pre-agreement (2 weeks is minimum notice required to cease rental, or £300 in lieu of earlier termination). Lentor decision to terminate is immediate.

Insurance is your own responsibility, please.

I work locally and nationally, so hope to leave the cottage in 'safe hands' when I'm away. I am tidy, and respectful of others' privacy, although more than happy to share cooking or suggest trips out.

Sorry, the Cottage is unsuitable for Couples, although occasional vistors / overnight guests are very welcome by prior agreement.

No hot meals, no animals, no outdoor clothing or shoes are allowed in the upstairs bedrooms, thanks. Please benefit from the available Dining and Utility spaces.

No Smoking in, on or around the house, garden or premises. No drugs.

Garden maintenance is also included in the rent - so really everything is there to be enjoyed with mutual respect.
