About Paul and Eileen Lyons
Paul and Eileen Lyons own and manage the cottage and have lived next door since 2010. We enjoy the outdoors and country life, enjoy travelling and are very fond of Austria, Germany and Switzerland, and of walking in Britain and in the Alps. We enjoy meeting people and look forward to welcoming guests. We love this area and like to see people enjoying all that it has to offer. It's good to see weary people, settle in, unwind and recharge their batteries while they are here . Paul also speaks good German and we hope to introduce European guests to the pleasures of Northumberland.
Paul and Eileen Lyons purchased this cottage in 2012
Why Paul and Eileen Lyons chose Wooler
We love the tranquil, peaceful location of the cottage and yet it is only a mile from all local amenities and within easy reach of city life at Edinburgh or Newcastle upon Tyne. We first saw and photographed the cottage within a full rainbow, and when a few years later it became for sale, decided to go ahead and buy it. During winter 2014/15 we restored the original inglenook and alcove and fitted a new log burner. During winter 2015/16 we have enlarged the garden a little and extended the stone walling.
What makes this cottage unique
Relaxing, comfy cottage with splendid views, guests often say it is like a 'Home from Home' and consistently give it a high rating. The location in rural, North Northumberland makes it ideal for exploring the National Park, the sandy beaches, castles and fishing ports of The Heritage Coastline, Alnwick with its castle and gardens, the Beautiful Scottish Borders and The Tyne Valley. Walk from the cottage, locally or into the hills. Potter round the shop's on Wooler's independent High Street, visit local attractions, have a day further afield or simply relax at the cottage which has a huge collection / variety of books, plenty of games and lots of 'Craft Materials' for guests to use......try knitting or crochet or simple collage. We debated long about whether to include WiFi, as some people like to escape the digital world for a while, however after a successful trial in 2017 it is now included. People can choose to switch off if they wish. Do try Doddington's award winning cheeses and ice creams, Craster kippers, or fresh fish from Eyemouth via a mobile van, good quality meat from the local butchers, sweets from the old fashioned sweet shop. Wooler also has several Antique Shops. Enjoy lovely sunsets, chill out by the log fire, have a Drink or a Meal in Wooler or one of the nearby villages. We are in the Northumberland Dark Sky Park and benefit from clear skies without light pollution, so stargaze from the cottage to the awesome skies.
