Delightful stone-built cottage nestled in the heart of this charming seaside village. Beaches abound nearby and everything you need is on the doorstep. A perfect hideaway for families and friends.

Head to this cottage for beach days galore. Sitting on the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, explore a different beach every day and scatter the sand with pawprints and footprints. The nearest sandy stretch is at Alnmouth and is less than a mile away, whilst the beach at Warkworth (5 miles) is great for surfing and sea-swimming. Exuding bags of country-cottage charm and farmhouse style, this pretty abode sleeps five guests over three bedrooms and is perfect for families looking to escape the hustle and bustle.

Make your way inside where you are greeted by handfuls of character and charm. The stable door, exposed stonework and roaring wood burner all welcome you inside with open arms and invite you to feel at home. The cosy lounge with plenty of sofa space for everyone to put their feet up, floral feature wall and warming wood burner is a lovely space in which to curl up and relax or to enjoy a family film night with the table piled high with popcorn. Light floods into the kitchen/diner through the orangery roof, and the window looks out over the patio, inviting you to cook up a storm and enjoy the calming ambience of this bright space. Dine at the table then head out to the patio and climb steps to reach the top deck. Sit with a tipple or take your morning coffee and the paper outside for a relaxing start to your day before the adventures begin. Freshen up in the ground-floor bathroom before ascending to the first floor to hit the pillow. The twin room is reached through the king-size bedroom, making it the perfect arrangement for families with little ones. There is free, on-street parking in the village.

With something to keep everyone entertained, the seaside village of Bamburgh (21.5 miles) is home to a beach, a castle and a golf course, all with fantastic views over the ocean. Just before you reach Bamburgh, is Seahouses (17 miles), from here you can hop on a boat and travel to the Farne Islands where wildlife and birdlife are abundant.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Gorgeous home from home. This cottage is in a great location in Alnmouth, 5 mins walk from the beach. It is beautifully done up, really cosy and clean with everything you need and good size bedrooms. We would definitely book the cottage again, thank you so much.

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.
