Boltslaw Cottage is a self catering cottage set in the peaceful surroundings of the North Pennine Hills, near the village of Blanchland. The cottage is within easy reach of Hexham in Northumberland. The cottage retains many original features whilst having comfortable furnishings.


The living/dining room is comfortable and cosy with two sofas, ideal for spending an evening by the fire and includes a phone, flat screen TV with Sky Freeview, DVD player, a music centre and a WiFi hub. The kitchen is equipped with washer/dryer, fridge freezer and food processor.

There are two bedrooms, one a king-size and one twin. The garden has wonderful views and includes garden furniture and is suitable for barbecues.

There is plenty of space to run around and explore, with walks straight from the door, and the burn across the road is great for children (and Dads) to play and dam up!" A recent visitor's 8 year old son (who has stayed previously) jumped out of the car saying "This is my favourite place in the whole world"! Recent slightly older visitors have enjoyed the wildlife including red squirrels, curlew, lapwing and various owls. Rare moorland birds such as snipe and woodcock may be seen if you are patient.
