Even though the weather hasn't been great this week, it didn't stop us from thoroughly enjoying our holiday with our two Labradors. We have done our favourite walk to Football Hole more than once and played with the dogs in the sea. One day it was misty on the coast so we did a lovely walk in Thrunton Woods. The colours of Autumn were beautiful andRead more the smell of pine was particularly strong as they were felling trees. After we drove into Rothbury which is very pretty, and had some lunch. You can walk along the river bank here - it is another lovely walk. Good food is always high on our agenda when visiting this area. We have found some great places to eat. We especially love The Ship at Low Newton, The Potted Lobster at Bamburgh and the Bistro at St Aidens Hotel in Seahouses . Hide

The location of the cottage on the beach is outstanding. The area is peaceful compared to the other beaches along this part of the coast and there are lots of fantastic walks from the doorstep. We discovered the bird hide close to the cottage which added to our evening enjoyment. Overall a great family holiday.

We always enjoy our holiday here.The cottage has the best position in the whole of Northumberland! The cottage itself wants for nothing- beautifully furnished.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
