Friendly Hound Cottage

The Friendly Hound Cottage, Ford Common is located in a quiet, rural location with fantastic views to the open Northumberland countryside. Welcome refreshments can be enjoyed in our garden summerhouse - a great way to unwind after a long day's touring.

All rooms are bright and spacious and offer all the thoughtful extras that add a touch of luxury to your holiday experience.


Breakfast is normally served between 8.00am and 9.00am, (other times can be arranged), and has been described by our guests as "especially excellent". We take pride in using locally produced ingredients and offer a vegetarian option if desired.

Eating out

Eating out in the evening is no problem as there are several excellent pubs and restaurants within easy reach.

Arrivals / check-in

It would be appreciated if guests could aim to book in between 3.30pm and 6.30pm.

Our hospitality extends to your motorbike too!

In addition to ample off-road parking we offer overnight garaging, a hosepipe for washing your bike, visor cleaning and drying facilities for your riding gear.

Should you prefer not to ride or walk for your evening meal we have an arrangement with a local taxi service at very reasonable rates. Just let us know if you would like us to book this for you.

Our wonderful location also makes the Friendly Hound a great base for touring both Northern England and Southern Scotland, so check out the routes!

Group / long stay discounts

With this in mind we have special offers for groups or longer stays; please ask us for more details.

Local attractions include Ford and Etal Estates, Holy Island/Lindisfarne, historic castles and market towns, and the beautiful Northumberland coast.

Travel a little further and you can soon be in the Scottish Borders, Kielder Forest and the North Pennines. The ferry port at Newcastle is just 60 miles away.
