Beachcombers Retreat is lovely accommodation in a great location. We had lots of long, wonderful walks along the beach with our dog, who was in heaven. Best restaurant we found was the Old Boathouse in Amble, and Spurellis Ice-cream was fantastic. Highly recommend this holiday house for dog owners, and friendly owners live next door

Beachcomber's retreat is a beautifully kept house with excellent facilities. The home owners are very welcoming and friendly. We loved waking up every morning to a sea view and having a beach on our door step. Amble is about a 45 minute walk with 2 small children and a dog. Low Hauxley is an excellent base to explore the beautiful Northumberland coRead moreast or just a lovely place to relax. We rode broomsticks at Alnwick castle. Visited Holy Island, Bamburgh, Warkworth, Alnmouth and Amble. We really enjoyed our Puffin Cruise, (children were allowed in the wheel house, which they loved). Spurreli's ice cream, shopping at the pods, fish and chips were great in Amble. My husband enjoyed the real ale at the Mason's Arms in Amble. The food and real ale were excellent in the Red Lion in Alnmouth. Warkworth has some lovely little shops and Fenwick gallery has lovely art and jewellery. All the beaches are lovely and clean and relatively deserted. The North East welcome was brilliant, everyone was friendly. I would recommend this house to anyone, we've stayed in many holiday lets over the years and this one was superb. Excellent, dogs can stay in this house, but you couldn't tell. Everything we needed was there and added luxury on demand movies from sky And wi fi. Would definitely want to stay here again, due to the beautiful house in a peaceful location. Hide

Incredibly happy with our cottage - a perfect place to stay. The cottage was very clean upon arrival. The facilities were absolutely spot on. Loved our stay at Beachcombers Retreat. It's in a fantastic location - the sea views are amazing. Couldn't believe how wonderful the beaches are, especially Druridge Bay, Alnmouth and Embleton Bay. Boat trip Read moreto Coquet Island was wonderful. Loved the Ship Inn at Low Newton, Sea and Soil at Amble and the Seafood Shack at Alnmouth. Enjoyed walking around Warkworth (afternoon tea at Bertrams was lovely) and Alnwick (Barter Books in the old railway station is worth a visit). But of course the simple things in life are best and I'll never forget the evening walks along the beach with curlews, oyster catchers and redshanks calling as the sun went down. And all of this within a stones throw of the cottage. Wonderful. We have already recommended Beachcombers Retreat to friends as a place to stay in Northumberland. Hide

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.
