Property code: OC-NB1986

This contemporary cottage is set deep in rolling countryside within Howick Hall Gardens & Arboretum, the ancestral seat of the Earls Grey since 1319 (after who the tea is named) and a garden lover’s delight. You are welcome to walk dogs before 10.30am or after 6pm in the arboretum and have direct access to the gardens (no dogs permitted) during opening hours. The farming hamlet of Howick itself is set just inland from the North Sea and looks out onto the majestic ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle, 2.5 miles to the north, and to distant views of Coquet Island, 13 miles to the south. A 14-mile coastal footpath between Beadnell and Alnmouth passes near the village, offering some of the most outstanding coastal scenery in the country.

The decor of the cottage is of a high standard throughout. Enter through a side entrance and into a hallway leading to the downstairs shower room with underfloor heating, and the country-style kitchen with a dining area and views onto the garden. There is also a good-sized cloakroom on the ground floor where you can store coats and shoes. The lounge includes comfortable seating and has an attached sunroom with views out onto the rear garden. An external utility room is accessed from the side of the property and there are two bedrooms upstairs with lovely views – a king-size and a twin (the twin beds can be made into a super-king-size bed on request). The charming bathroom features a shower over the bath.

The wonderful rear garden includes outdoor furniture and is a great place to relax on summer evenings – ensure you make the most of the grounds of this magnificent estate as well during your holiday.

The property is set in a beautiful location close to the coast and surrounding countryside. It is well equipped, clean and comfortable and we were made very welcome. Little extra touches such as dog treats and a towel were really useful. We had a fantastic holiday and cant wait to come back.

lovely property in a peaceful rural location. Large garden for dogs and able to walk in the arboretum nearby. The beaches in this area are unspoilt and dog friendly. Plenty of places to visit and able to sample some lovely seafood in dog friendly pubs/cafes.

This is our second visit to this cottage which is just right for us in the right location. Anna the housekeeper prepares the property superbly and makes sure we are made welcome and leaves us feeling assured should we have any problem. That is why we are returning again in September.
