    AND BOOKING
    A recent conversion of Hemmel Retreat (the low occupancy version of The Hemmel) here just opposite Stay Northumbria HQ. Originally a stone built barn used for stabling working horses it has been used since the 1830's. Now fully refurbished and extended The Hemmel offers luxury accommodation with a huge amount of space on two levels. An open plan spacious kitchen dining area with ceiling beams, and in the lounge traditional arched windows, and a picture patio door overlooks farmland, to the sea and the Farne Islands. A mix of quality tiled floors to the ground floor and sumptuous carpets upstairs, provides a warm welcome, along with every modern convenience tucked away behind the traditional styled wooden doors throughout, and beautifully styled kitchen units. Two lovely first floor bedrooms offer sleeping for four. With an ensuite shower-room the master bed is a super king double , a second double bedroom is Super king or Twin room, with use of the main bathroom with its pristine white suite - large bath below a window looking out to sea, a walk in shower, basin and toilet. Heating is underfloor and a traditional wood burning stove in the lounge proffers the ideal for cosy retreat for autumn and winter breaks. The pretty enclosed garden & patio area is on the seaward side of the property. Two, off road parking spaces are offered. Sorry no pets or smoking.
