Attractive stone cottage within the Northumberland National Park, with stunning scenery, wonderful wildlife, and walking routes on the doorstep. This is a perfect retreat for couples, friends, and families.

Located on a quiet lane in the historic, riverside market town of Bellingham, this cottage is set in glorious countryside close to Kielder Water and Forest Park (18.5 miles). Stroll to the friendly village shops, pubs, and restaurants or enjoy walks from the doorstep along this pretty stretch of the River North Tyne. One such walk is the popular Hareshaw Linn Walk (1 mile) which takes you through ancient woodland and over six bridges to arrive at the breathtaking waterfall. Park at some of Kielder’s many beauty spots for spectacular scenery, walking and cycling routes. Head to the wildlife cabin at Tower Knowe Visitor Centre (10 miles) to see ospreys and the Kielder Observatory (20 miles) for an unforgettable Dark Skies experience. Visit Hadrian’s Wall (29 miles), Housesteads (17 miles) and the Roman fort at Vindolanda (19 miles).

Step inside this charming stone cottage for a warm welcome. You can hang your outdoor clothing and store your walking boots at the door before heading into the inviting lounge. The stone inglenook fireplace houses the cosy wood burner so you can sit and relax on the comfortable seating before thinking about dinner. There are books to dip into and fun games to play, as well as a Smart TV for your entertainment if you are planning a couple of evenings in or a movie night. A sliding wooden door leads through to the well-equipped kitchen and includes an electric oven and hob, a fridge with an icebox, a microwave and a washing machine. Upstairs there are two well-presented bedrooms: a king-size bedroom which gets the morning sun so is perfect for breakfast in bed with views over nearby gardens towards the river, and a twin bedroom with views over the pretty neighbouring gardens. The family bathroom comprises a shower over the bath and WC.

Outside, at the rear, there is a small, enclosed courtyard with a garden table and chairs where you can enjoy morning coffee.

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.
