Heather Cottage at Burgham

Just 15 minutes from the delightful town of Morpeth with it’s quality selection of shops and 15 minutes to historic Alnwick, home to the famous Alnwick Castle, Gardens and Treehouse.
Heather Cottage is as perfect in winter as it is in the summer, with the wood burning stove in the open plan living area for chilly days and frosty nights, and the lush green and evergreen trees surrounding the cottage creating a beautiful backdrop on dewy spring mornings or balmy summer nights.
