Property code: OC-GD1023

A colourful and characterful stone-built cottage perched in the charming village of Lucker. Explore the Northumberland coast and beyond when staying at this lovely property before coming home to nights in front of the fire and al fresco dinners in the garden on warm evenings.

Vibrantly decorated with a home-from-home style throughout, this characterful country cottage will offer an inviting welcome from the moment you cross the threshold. Enter into the spacious, open-plan living room to find excellent lounge, dining and kitchen facilities. Sink into the comfy sofa and unwind to the hum of the Smart TV and the crackles from the wood burner. Find the kitchen to have a contemporary feel as you prepare tummy-warming dishes and serve them up around the stylish dining table. Make the most of sunny evenings by sitting out in the courtyard with a chargrilled BBQ feast and a glass of something cool and crisp. When heads begin to nod, take the cottage-style stairs up to the first floor to drift off in the king-size or twin-room. The family shower room completes this floor.

Lucker, a charming village just 1.5 miles away, is a wonderful place to spend a few hours at the local gastropub with a few award-winning dishes and pints of real ales from Alnwick Brewery. Spend memorable days in the village of Bamburgh (4.5 miles) away. It's jam-packed with things to see and do, including miles of white sandy beaches, a golf course, renowned walking routes and its castle. Avid movie and history buffs will be itching to see the magnificent medieval fortress, Alnwick Castle, recognised by millions as the wizarding school of a popular film franchise. At the same time, keen walkers will want to explore the coastal path in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Comfortable clean cottage. Stayed in very windy conditions and the noise around the bedroom window quite annoying. Parking was an issue as there was no clear indication of which spaces were available.

It's a great little place, the heating is great and the hot water is endless and instant both from the taps and the shower. The wood burner is a welcome touch but as it says you need to provide your one logs, you will need a lot. They are sold at the garage at the top of the road. The only downside was it's not possible to walk anywhere from the cRead moreottage unless you walk on the roads which are windy and narrow so not ideal for safe walking. Is it a great base for exploring. Can highly recommend the Castle pub in Bamburgh. Hide
