Stunning 2 Bedroom, Sleeps 4, secluded cottage with open country views
About Tory Dodd
We are family run farming business who acquired Shortflatt Farm in 2015 and we completely re-furbished the cottage the to a high standard. Myself and my mother in law Marjorie run the cottage ourselves and we both live within 4 miles of the cottage, so near enough to be contacted if necessary but keys are left for guests on arrival along with welcome cake!
Tory Dodd purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Tory Dodd chose Newcastle upon Tyne
Set in the heart of Northumberland, the cottage is a perfect base to explore all areas. It boasts the advantage of being secluded and set on its own in beautiful countryside but also within 5 minutes of the village of Belsay, 15 minutes of Ponetland and 30 minutes to Newcastle. The Coast and the Scottish Borders can both be reached within the hour. The cottage is very spacious, with fantastic outdoor space and the lake can be explored but is a good distance away from the cottage for safety reasons.

Just a fab place to stay
Arrived at Shortflatt Farm in the dark so couldn’t see much of the outside. Inside the cottage is beautiful, it has everything you need. Fully equipped kitchen, great dining room with lots of light and beams. Comfortable living room with a log burner and that was the best thing to cosy up at night in front of the fire. Everything was provided for the fire too, husband loved it! Very steep stairs to the bedrooms but there are hand rails on both sides, had to put the stair gate up as the dog thought it was an adventure to go up some stairs as he isn’t allowed at home either 😀� The bed was really comfortable, bedrooms great sizes and the whole cottage is decorated beautifully. Great communication with Tory before and during our stay, she left us some home made mince pies and slow gin which was very nice. The only thing I would say is that the cottage could do with another comfy chair in the living room, only 2 of us so it was fine but there’s only really 3 comfy seats as the chair is too low to sit on all night. Oh and a hot tub would be nice 🤣� The views and the peace and quiet made it the most relaxing weekend we’ve ever had. The dog loved the garden and the space around the lake. We will definitely return so thank you Tory for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home xxxx

5 day break to Shortflatt Farm Cottage
Just what we needed, what a fantastic find. Beautiful cottage, very well equipped and great location. We would absolutely recommend this cottage and will certainly be back for another visit. Thank you
Beautiful cottage in beautiful countryside!
Perfect place for a relaxing break, stunning scenery and beautiful walks. Secluded but close enough by car to attractions. The cottage itself was very comfortable and cosy with everything you would possibly need to make your stay relaxing. Very peaceful
Fabulous weekend break
Absolutely stunning property, spotlessly clean and so comfortable. Beautiful homemade ginger cake was awaiting us which was a lovely touch. We will be returning!
