Situated near Bamburgh Beach and the imposing Bamburgh Castle, this quirky property is a fantastic holiday home for families to explore the beauty of the Northumberland coast.

Sitting all on one level, the heart of the property is the open-plan living space featuring a wood burner, a selection of seating and a dining area, perfect for families. The kitchen has an element of countryside charm, with wooden countertops and bright cupboards making an enjoyable space to cook up a meal. The first of the bedrooms is a comfortable king-size room benefitting from an en-suite double shower room. For younger guests, the twin room is a cosy option with a large wardrobe and a chair for storytime. For ultimate relaxation, the family bathroom features a luxurious free-standing slipper bath with a tall window allowing light to pour in.

The perfect location and a lovely home to come back to - either after a walk along the beach returning via the village for a drink, experiencing the wildlife of the Farne Islands or visiting one of the many spectacular castles. Dolphins just offshore one evening were a bonus. We couldn't have asked for more.

I was pleased with the booking procedure and the fact that Original Cottages sent timely and clear reminders concerning the booking. Isobel Cottage was a delight. It was our second visit and we hope to return.

Because the property was all ground floor level we expected it to be disability friendly as both myself & my husband have mobility issues. We found it difficult to negotiate to the front door as the o initial steps were difficult & no handrail. The main door steps are far too narrow & the step up into the house was far too steep bordering on dangeRead morerous. Again no handrail. I spent the week being very anxious that my husband was going to fall. The front door was impossible to lock so we had to leave the house unlocked each time we went out. Surely this should have been picked up by the cleaner. The en suite bathroom was also far too small to negotiate for anyone with mobility issues. It should be stated in the property information that it is not suitable for the elderly or those with a disability. The lounge settee & chairs leave a lot to be desired for older people. Hide

Lovely cottage, high quality furnishings - a couple of niggles. I requested the singles joining up - not. Heating not on in second bedroom so very cold first night. Bathroom radiator didn't work and outer doors difficult to lock and bolt. Otherwise perfect

Lack of drawers in bedrooms. Nowhere to hang wet towels in shower room. Cottage was cold on arrival and heaters took overnight to warm the space hence first evening was cool
