Cross Rigg Developments, based in Ashington and which owns a number of properties around Northumberland, is making the offer to ex-service personnel who have fallen on hard times.

As part of its Beat the Freeze offer, it is offering low cost accommodation that includes gas central heating and water.

Among the properties available are at St Cuthbert’s Court, in Ashington; Turning Tides in Newbiggin; and at Riverside, in Stakeford.

And the company is also offering a special deal for anyone else looking for somewhere to stay this winter.

It is offering two weeks rent with two additional weeks free from now until the end of January, with prices starting from £90.23 a week.

A spokesman said: You never need to worry about being warm this winter.

“Also with our housing scheme there is no admin fee and you can spread your bond over 12 months so people with low income and on benefits can move in from as little as £180.46.

“We also have the Halls at Ashington, where prices start from £75 per week but with low utility costs, with buy two get two free offer.”
