The perfect place to relax and get away from it all, this welcoming cottage is well placed to explore the magnificent Northumberland countryside and coast.

This cosy stone cottage is the perfect place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The welcoming property is found in popular Bellingham, a village perfectly-placed to explore the magnificent Northumberland countryside and coast, all the while surrounded by lush green landscapes and historic, Tudor-style buildings that line the streets.

The village, close to the North Tyne River, offers up a range of activities and things to see, with an 18-hole golf course, fishing and walking routes - including the Pennine Way and the Hareshaw Linn - a waterfall and the site of early coke blast furnaces nearby. A stay here also means you'll be just 12 miles from Hadrian's Wall, while there are more than 30 miles of beaches to explore, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (Northumberland Coast), many coastal villages, and the magnificent Bamburgh Castle.

Enter the cottage through the kitchen, of which the entrance is next to the parking bay. The kitchen includes an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and microwave, while there are plenty of storage cupboards to make use of. From the kitchen, a beautiful pine door opens into a lounge and dining area full of real country cottage ambience. A pine dining table, Welsh dresser, bookcase full of books, DVDs and board games are all available to enjoy while warming up in front of the wood burner. From the lounge, a door leads into the entrance hall where there are coat hooks and ample room for muddy boots and shoes, while the front door opens onto the street outside. Upstairs there are two bedrooms - one double and one good-sized single bedroom with wardrobe - and a bright bathroom with shower over bath and WC. An outside bench cries out for a morning coffee or glass of wine of an evening, while there is room for one car in the off-road parking space.

We enjoyed our long weekend at this cottage. The wood burner does make it cosy and the other heaters work well, meaning it is a pleasure to return to after a walk. It has a great location in Bellingham with pubs cafes and shops a short walk away. There are lots of good walks in the area so we'd like to return soon.

Delightful cottage, well equipped and very comfortable. It was very quiet which was a bonus. Excellent wifi connection. Good location with easy access to all that Northumberland offers. Useful amenities in the town and good food available at The Cheviot.

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.
