If you’re a fan of the great outdoors, escaping to the coast in pursuit of less polluted air can help significantly improve both your physical and mental health. Use your time off work to spend some time outside of the city, away from the noise and busyness of everyday life and immerse yourself in all that a trip to the coast has to offer.  
Our extensive collection of Northumberland coastal cottages means there’s no shortage of luxurious places to stay among this Area of Outstanding Beauty (AONB). Whether you’re hoping to spot rare puffins on the Farne Islands - located just a stone’s throw from the village of Seahouses - or discover colourful wildflowers at the historic Dunstanburgh Castle, Northumberland is brimming with natural beauty.
