South Lodge is a beautiful Grade II listed building and was built in the 1820s as the gatehouse to Longhirst Hall near Morpeth, Northumberland. With 3 bedrooms, 2 bath/shower rooms, sitting room, dining room and kitchen, South Lodge can sleep 8 people (10 with the sofa bed) and is ideal for 1 or 2 families wanting to explore the beautiful coast and countryside of Northumberland. A cot bed and high chair is also available.
South Lodge has central heating throughout and a wood burning stove in the sitting room and a stove in the dining room for extra atmosphere. It is set in its own 2 acres of mature woodland which is free for you to explore. At the right time of year help yourself to the home grown soft fruits in the garden. Make use of the barbeque or relax and take in the tranquillity of the woodland in the summerhouse or sit under one of the majestic trees in the woodland garden. South Lodge is perfect for children (and their grown ups!) to do den building, hide and seek, bug collecting (equipment provided) and nature watching. If you peek over the stone wall at the weekend you are likely to catch a game of cricket next door.
We have provided a wide selection of traditional games for you to play (indoor and outdoor) and there are many books of all types and for all ages for you to read. If you find yourself fully engrossed in a fiction book you have picked up but your stay is ending, you are very welcome to take the book with you and then post it back when you have finished.
At South Lodge your comfort is our priority. We provide you with comfy beds, cotton and linen bedding, duck down pillows and quilts and cosy blankets.
