Schoolhouse south facing view

The Schoolhouse is a self-catering cottage, located in Fenwick, 7 miles from Holy Island.

The ground floor is wheelchair accessible offering a spacious open plan kitchen/diner, seating alcove, south facing living room with views onto open countryside, log burning stove, single bedroom equipped with an electrical profiling bed, ceiling hoist, large en-suite wet room and an adult sized changing/shower bench.  

The first floor has three bedrooms: double with en-suite, twin room, single room with queen sized bed and a spacious family bathroom.  The Schoolhouse is a great place to stay for families, walkers and cyclists – it’s open to everyone, whether you need the additional accessible features or not. 

The property is detached, enjoys stunning views onto open countryside, has a private rear garden and off street parking for two vehicles. It’s in easy reach of Holy Island, and the Northumberland coast from Berwick, Bamburgh, Beadnell Bay and beyond. Inland there’s great days out at Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Ad Gefrin in Wooler, the Ford and Etal Estate as well as the Scottish Borders with Floors Castle and Paxton House. 

The Schoolhouse opened in 2020 and adapted to offer Accessible Stays in May 2022. In 2023 we were awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the North East of England Tourism Awards New Business Category. A huge thank you to all our guests who have helped us on our way.
