Continue through to the sleek kitchen, a space that has been fitted with a washer/dryer; fix up a tasty meal for two that can be savoured at the nearby breakfast bar.

When night falls, cuddle up with your partner on one of two leather sofas in front of the crackling woodburning stove.

Relax in the enclosed rear garden with a glass of wine as you watch the day go by and look back on the wonderful break you're having.

The Hunter's Inn pub is less than a mile away, stop here for a delicious meal before walking down the Heddon River to Heddon's Mouth Beach for a quiet afternoon by the sea.
