Pleasant characterful cottage, cosy in the evenings, especially with the log burner. In a quiet street close to the harbour and shops, pubs etc.

Reviewed by Sally 7th September 2019

Cosy well equipped cottage within easy walking distance of the shops, eateries and bus routes. Lots to see and do in the area.

Reviewed by Paul 24th August 2019

This is a very well equipped and cosy cottage which has the valued little extra touches of ample torches, books and items to make you feel at home. The central heating is excellent for chillier days and a wood burner is at hand in the lounge. The only recommendation would be for an en suite W.C in the main bedroom, which is massive. As there is no Read morefacility upstairs its a long trip to use the loo in the middle of the night. Hide

Very steep stairs could be difficult for some. Bit of a struggle to get a large suitcase up. Parking was very handy. Very close to the harbour. Well equipped cottage. Lovely large double bedroom, bed a bit firm for our liking.

Reviewed by Gerard 15th September 2018

This was a well presented cottage and equipped with everything required for an enjoyable stay. An ideal location with parking a valuable bonus. Perhaps not best suited for those with mobility considerations due to the location of the bathroom and layout of the stairs.

Thank you for letting us stay here. Bunk bed was AMAZINGLY comfy & I loved that we got fishing nets. I also loved that we had internet & I could use my ipad.

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.
