This is an excellent location close to the beach and perfect for a relaxing holiday and walks.

Reviewed by John 12th October 2019

The cottage was very well equipped.The location by the sea was superb - it meant that we could access the beach whenever we wanted to. The heating was adequate once we had been provided with additional heaters. Because there were only two of us the price did seem rather high. Overall we had a lovely holiday.

Lovely, well equipped cottage in beautiful location. Our two boys loved being so close to the beach and spending their time hunting for treasure in the rock pools. A memorable holiday and we hope to come back.

A fabulous location, and a lovely homely place to stay. I experienced every kind of weather during my holiday and the cottage hit the spot every time - for lazing late in bed and enjoying the stormy views from the cosy lounge on the rainy days, or for getting straight down to the beach or enjoying an evening drink in the garden when the sun came ouRead moret.

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.
