Location and Directions

Location and Directions for Chevy Chase Cottage:

Chevy Chase Cottage is located on a slight incline, some two minutes stroll from the centre of Wooler.

Wooler sits on the banks of Wooler Water, a tributary of the River Till and ultimately the River Tweed.  Wooler and the surrounding area are steeped in medieval history and just a short drive from the historic towns of Alnwick, Berwick upon Tweed and of course the unspoilt Heritage Coast and Scottish Borders.

Further afield lie the major cities of Newcastle upon Tyne and Edinburgh which are both easily accessible via quiet uncluttered roads that lead from Wooler.

To the west lies the Northumberland National Park (4 miles) covering some 400 sqaure miles, it is designated an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’ and is the least populated of the English national parks.  It’s four scenic valleys, Beamish, Harthope, Coquet and College, recently voted the most tranquil location in England.  The National Park provides some of the most spectacular walking in the country with it’s vast expanse of grouse moors, where splendid solitude abates.
