The cottage is fully equipped with all you need and the wood burner was perfect on a chilly night. The owners provided us the information we needed for a brilliant weekend break. There are some fabulous walks nearby and the pub across the road offers friendly staff and great food.

We had a superb week, weather was mixed but we enjoyed every minute. The cottage was brilliant, clean, comfortable & with nice touches. Loved the coffee machine with plenty of capsules for our use. The garden & games room was an added bonus, we enjoyed evenings sitting in the garden with a G&T. Lovely meals at Lord crewe Arms in Blanchland & the BlRead moreack Bull inn in Frosterley. A good day out at the Beamish Museum & High Force, all worth a visit. Beautiful walks will definitely be back 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.
