The Dod, Powburn, Alnwick, NE66 4JL
Our 2 cottages are on a working hill farm approximately 3 miles from the main Sandstone Way route, closer still to NCN 68 The Pennine Cycleway, and metres from 1 of the Sandstone Way loops. Although there is no minimum stay, it's far more economical to stay for a few days which can easily be filled with different routes from the doorstep. If you need a day off from cycling, there's unlimited walks around our 1800 acres plus much more beyond.
Converted in 2019 from a byre and kennels, our 2 cottages provide comfortable accommodation for sole use. Both properties have a fridge, freezer, TV, The Barn has a DVD player, both have log burners, background central heating, outdoor seating, barbecue and an outdoor firepit. Dogs allowed downstairs (3 on The Barn, 2 in the cottage). Ample parking and lockable storage for approx 10 bikes.
For road cyclists, the driveway is passable leading to NCN route 68 1.5 miles away. You can travel for miles without having to touch any A roads. Pam is a keen road and mountain biker so can provide information on routes, cycle friendly cafés, repair shops and cycle hire.
