The small and popular market town of Wooler, known as the ‘Gateway to the Cheviots’, lies 8 miles from the cottage and was listed in the Sunday Times ‘best places to live’ list.
Wooler is situated in one of the more sparsely populated areas in England, however Edinburgh to the north and Newcastle to the south are still easily accessible. Berwick East Coast mainline train station is only eighteen miles away. With its extremely low crime rate, vibrant community spirit, down to earth friendly people, independent shops, and local services, it is easy to see why Wooler is so popular amongst tourists and residents.
The town has excellent local amenities which include Cheviot Farm Bakery, TR Johnson Butcher, The Good Life Deli, The Chocolate Box, Ad Gefrin Whiskey Distillery, The Co-op Supermarket, Budgen’s Convenience Store and numerous independent pubs, cafes, and restaurants. Schools include Glendale Middle School and Wooler First School; both have excellent reputations.
