Property code: OC-NB082

This pretty cottage, situated in a pretty village just 1 mile from the gorgeous Northumberland Coast AONB, is the perfect romantic retreat for couples or small families. Sleeping three over two tranquil bedrooms and with one dog welcome, the whole family can enjoy adventures here. Take walks along the Northumberland Coast Path (1 mile) or spend the day at Longhoughton Beach (5.5 miles).

The property, which was built in the 18th century, is cosy and welcoming with an open-plan style. The kitchen diner has a cheerful, cottage-style feel with orange and cream tones, while peaceful, neutral decor in the lounge beckons you to sink into the sofas after a long day out and watch your favourite show on TV. Up the wooden staircase, two gorgeous bedrooms await; charming pastel colours will help you drift off to sleep in either the double or the single bedroom – just watch your head in the eaves. The bright bathroom has a shower over the bath which is ideal for quick rinses or long soaks to ease aching muscles after a hike. Outside, there’s the perfect spot for your morning coffee on a bench in the courtyard, surrounded by established plants and flowers.

Make sure you visit the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle (2 miles) where you’ll get great views from the top of the tower. The Alnwick Garden (6 miles) is home to one of the world’s largest wooden treehouses that kids will love. Take a boat trip to the Farne Islands with Golden Gate Boat Trips (10 miles) to go bird and seal spotting, or stay firmly on land and build sandcastles at Embleton Bay (3 miles) instead.

The cottage was pretty and the location was great for walking and going to the harbour to fish, and for walking to the castle. It is not far from Howick Gardens too, which are lovely. It was handy having the Cottage Inn next door for a meal. I couldnt get a signal or calls on my O2 phone but could on husbands phone, which is EE. A shop owner saiRead mored there is talk of putting a phone mast in at some point. Hide

All excellent and we had a great time. My only comment / issue was the amount of cobwebs and a few spiders lurking about. Particularly one right next to the bed and over the shower. Also the double mattress / bed wasnt great, noisy and a bit thin.

The bathroom was in need of a thorough clean. The shower head I cleaned myself to remove the black slime and the shower curtain was badly stained. The bed was very uncomfortable and affected the quality of our sleep so much we went out and purchased a mattress topper. Overall the Cottage was a good base but this early in the season it didn't feel lRead moreike it had been thoroughly cleaned for a long time. Hide

We've been to Larch Cottage several times before and love coming back - it ticks all our boxes for comfort, price, size, location and, of course, there's a very good pub 3 doors down! Thank you for another really good, relaxing break.

We did have a problem with the cottage during our stay, nobody`s fault and it was sorted out, but I think not as efficently as it it might have been & resulting in us having to stay in and wasting a day so I don`t feel I can give a higher score.
