Beautifully presented romantic cottage with a gorgeous garden and seating area, ideal for visiting the countryside and coast. Perfect for a couple or two friends using both bedrooms.

Sitting between the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Northumberland National Park, this cottage offers a perfect base from which to explore. Sleeping four guests across two bedrooms, sneak away for a romantic retreat or bundle the family off for an escape from the hustle and bustle. Exuding country charm and character, this gorgeous abode is a welcoming home to return to after days in the great outdoors. Spend balmy evenings lapping up the last of the sun outside and sit beneath the pretty pergola.

Follow the shrub-lined path to the front door and step up and inside to make yourselves at home. The bright, open-plan living space invites you to sink into the comfortable sofas and relax a while in front of the TV. After unwinding, wander over to the kitchen area where there is all you need to rustle up a delicious meal which can be plated up either inside at the table, with the wood burner warming the space, or outside for an al fresco feast. After dinner, enjoy a soak in the tub in the first-floor family bathroom or freshen up with a shower before hitting the pillow to rest your head. The master bedroom has a lovely, fresh ambience and a king-size bed for a peaceful night’s sleep, whilst the twin bedroom is great for younger guests or a couple of friends. There is off-road parking at this property.

Wonderfully located for adventurous guests, pack up a picnic and head out for the day to explore your superb surroundings. Spend a day on the sand at Alnmouth (11.5 miles) or head to Warkworth (13.5 miles) for a sea swim, and visit the majestic castle. For a day of inland adventures, travel 21 miles to The Cheviot, the highest point in the Northumberland National Park, where your climb is rewarded with panoramic, far-reaching views. Just 16.5 miles away, Wooler is known as the gateway to The Cheviots and is a great place to begin your walk.

The cottage has a calm and peaceful atmosphere thanks to the tasteful decor which is simple but elegant. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly in response to any of our requests.

Cottage is conveniently located for many coastal and and country attractions. Has a pretty garden but let down some rather uncomfortable living room furniture and a cramped bathroom.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
