Adorable cottage in a charming village near the beaches, golf and numerous delights of this beautiful area. Perfect for a family or couples.

Sitting on the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming cottage is great for avid beachgoers. A quaint home-from-home, this abode has all you need to enjoy both cosy, relaxing evenings, and lively nights. Sleeping four guests over two bedrooms, and two dogs, adventure the days away in the sand and sea before returning for an al fresco evening and a peaceful night’s sleep.

Make your way inside via the rear door and step inside to begin unpacking your bags. Stock the kitchen cupboards with provisions and find everything you need to rustle up picnics and cook three-course feasts. The fridge has an icebox so you can cool your tipple and raise a toast to the chef after plating up and choosing your seat at the table in the lounge/diner. After long days, snuggle up on the sofa or the armchair and switch off in front of the TV to rejuvenate, or continue spending time in the fresh sea air and enjoy time on the patio, reached by walking across a shared access area and up a few steps. When it’s time to settle down for a good night’s sleep, climb two steps to the bedrooms, both of which are decorated in light, fresh tones. Skylights let natural light into both rooms and have blackout blinds to help you close your eyes and dream. There is off-road parking for two cars.

With a plethora of beaches to choose from, set up camp for fun-filled family days by the sea. Leave the car behind and enjoy a 2-mile stroll to Low Newton-by-the-sea and marvel at the majestic remains of Dunstanburgh Castle. A top destination for entertaining all the family, make the 10-mile journey north to Bamburgh for a game of golf on the green, a visit to the Grace Darling Museum, a day on the beach or a trip to Bamburgh Castle with its fantastic sea views. For a different castle experience, channel your inner Harry Potter at Alnwick Castle (8.5 miles) before visiting Alnwick Gardens.

A great location, two pubs and a hotel in the village, with small shop and visiting fish and chip van on Thursday. A brisk but short walk to the beach and coast path. A lovely cottage with good facilities, the wi fi was more reliable than we get at home. Our host kept in touch by text which was great. Somewhere we would definitely return to.
