5 Reasons to Book a Cottage in Northumberland

Posted 28 Sep 17, written by Amanda Lambert

Tucked away in the North East of England, Northumberland is one of the country's hidden gems - with its beautiful beaches, unspoilt countryside, rich history and eclectic market towns attracting visitors year after year.
Unsurprisingly, with so many things to see and do in the area, it makes a fantastic destination for a whole host of occasions - be it a significant birthday, romantic weekend away or business trip. In this post, we’re sharing why you should be booking to stay in quaint home-from-home cottages throughout the region.

1. Make birthdays brilliantly memorable 

When a birthday rolls around, especially a big one, it’s always nice to push the boat out. Whether you’re looking to say goodbye to your 20s in style, embrace your 40s with grace or simply get away from it all on your birthday, a cottage in Northumberland can provide you with the perfect birthday venue for friends and family. From seaside fun at one of our cottages in Craster or Alnwick, accommodation options mean you’ll be perfectly placed to experience the very best of the region - whether you’re staying in the county or by the coast.

2. Rustle up some romance

Why not show your other half just how much you care with a romantic short break in Northumberland? Recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), there are plenty of breath-taking beauty spots to explore while you’re here. For instance, cottages in Alnwick provide a fantastic base for making the most of the local area with some picturesque romantic walks and magical attractions like Alnwick Castle with The Treehouse Restaurant. You’ll also find a great selection of restaurants in the town, but with self-catering in Alnwick, you can enjoy an intimate meal for two without having to leave the privacy of your cottage.

3. Enjoy lovely long weekends

Of course, you don’t have to wait for a special occasion to book a break, you can get away from the daily grind with a long weekend - and, in Northumberland, you definitely won’t be disappointed. Immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring countryside, castles and gorgeous sandy beaches, all within easy reach when base yourself in holiday cottages in Bamburgh or other key locations. You’ll also find a selection of dog-friendly cottages in Bamburgh, so you can bring your four-legged friend along for a holiday, too! 

4. A rustic retreat to start married life in peace

After a busy wedding day, a staycation ‘minimoon’ or honeymoon to Northumberland could provide the rest and relaxation required to get married life off to a perfect start. Indulge yourselves with long lie ins, romantic beach walks and quiet picnic spots, with holiday lets in Bamburgh and Alnwick providing the perfect place to spend quality time together as newlyweds. In your very own slice of British paradise, you can keep the outside world at bay, making privacy and romance the order of the day.

5. Have a home-from-home while travelling

Heading to Northumberland for a wedding, event, or even a business trip? Well, why not make sure you have the ideal home-from-home while you’re away by choosing cottages in Northumberland over busy hotels? With a fully-equipped kitchen, comfortable, homely surroundings and a whole lot more, you can make the most of your time in Northumberland and feel right at home throughout your stay.
