Nestled in the heart of the picturesque Northumberland countryside, Little Cygnet is a contemporary haven boasting a sleek design and a distinctive black wood exterior. Positioned proudly alongside the serene lake, this modern single-story retreat promises an idyllic escape surrounded by nature's beauty.

Upon entering Little Cygnet, you are immediately captivated by the stunning floor-to-ceiling windows that frame a breathtaking panorama of the lake and the expansive fields beyond. The uninterrupted view offers a front-row seat to the graceful swans gliding across the water and the playful otters, who make occasional appearances with their curious heads bobbing above the surface.

The interior of Little Cygnet is a harmonious blend of style and functionality. The large open plan living, dining, and kitchen area epitomizes modern luxury, equipped with all the essentials to ensure a comfortable stay. The kitchen, seamlessly integrated into the space, features top-of-the-line appliances, including an oven, hob, microwave, and dishwasher – a testament to the high standards set by this property.

The dining area, adorned with contemporary furnishings, invites up to four guests to gather and enjoy meals in a convivial atmosphere. The living area is a haven of relaxation, boasting an expansive L-shaped reclining sofa positioned strategically to soak in the spectacular views. A large flat-screen smart TV adorns the wall, complemented by a fully functional log burner, providing warmth and ambiance. A starter pack of logs is thoughtfully provided, with the option to purchase additional logs for an extended cosy evening by the fire.

Stepping through the side door leads to the pièce de résistance – a generous timber balcony that wraps around the front and side of the property. The perfect vantage point to bask in the tranquillity of the surroundings or relish a morning coffee with the lake as your backdrop.

Little Cygnet accommodates its guests in two luxurious bedrooms, each furnished with a king-size bed for a restful night's sleep. The front bedroom boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, offering a unique opportunity to wake up to the enchanting lake view. It comes complete with its own ensuite featuring a spacious shower, toilet, and wash basin.

The second bedroom mirrors the opulence of the first, with its own ensuite designed for indulgence. A large shower, toilet, and wash basin are accompanied by a ceiling window that allows guests to stargaze from the comfort of their bed – a celestial touch to the already mesmerising views. Little Cygnet promises a sophisticated retreat, where modern luxury meets the tranquillity of Northumberland's natural beauty.
