About Peel Bothy

This little cottage is close to Hadrian’s Wall and perfect for exploring Northumberland.

Peel Bothy is a sturdy single-storey cottage perfect for a couple and two dogs. It was built in the 1850s and a plaque above the door records its opening by the late Queen Mother. Just a stone’s throw from Hadrian’s Wall, this cosy holiday cottage is the perfect base from which to explore wild Northumberland.

Step outside and make the short trip to the UK’s most famous Roman construction. Explore the wall before heading home to warm up infront of the log burner. 

Peel Bothy is situated on the edge of the Northumberland National Park. Take advantage of the area’s dark skies and enjoy an evening gazing up at the stars or have a trip to The Still Discovery Centre. A short drive away is Allen Banks and Staward Gorge, a fairy-tale woodland with miles of walking trails.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
