Out and About

Yellow House is well situated in the heart of Northumberland, England's rural border county, on the edge of the National Park. The area has recently been recognised as the most tranquil place in the country. Nestled in the Cheviot Hills it is the ideal base for walkers, cyclists, horse riding, outdoor sports or those wishing simply to enjoy the spectacular scenery.
