In the heart of Warkworth, which is less than 1/2 a mile from the cottage, is a quaint village with lots of amenities, including a great range of pubs, restaurants and independent shops. The beautiful English Heritage owned medieval castle sits high on the banks of the River Coquet and is a lovely place to spend some time exploring and learning about its fascinating history. You could also take a river trip and visit the nearby Hermitage, carved into the rocks.
The popular seaside town of Amble is just 5 minutes drive, where you can enjoy the bustling harbour village which offers great shopping opportunities with its unique outlets and Spurelli award winning ice cream parlour.
