Welcoming farm cottage with uninterrupted views of the fabulous coastline. Couples, friends and families will love relaxing, strolling on the beaches and exploring the major sights and attractions.

Tucked away amongst the Northumberland countryside, this spacious farmhouse cottage is perfect for friends or families who want to explore the area’s natural beauty. Surrounded by rural tranquillity, you have the best of coast and country on offer with quiet, picturesque beaches only a mile away. This north-east corner of England has something for everyone as it’s packed with history, natural beauty and wildlife. You can also hop over the border into Scotland, or perhaps take a train into the capital, Edinburgh.

Located at the end of a farm track on a working farm, this secluded cottage is light and airy with neutral tones adding to the sense of space. On entering, discard coats and shoes in the hallway before heading into the beautiful lounge to relax in front of the roaring wood burner and admire the views. The well-equipped kitchen/diner has yet more breathtaking views and plenty of space to cook and dine. Upstairs, there are two beautiful bedrooms and a gorgeous bathroom with a separate WC. Outside, there’s a north-facing patio with sea views and a private, south-facing walled garden. A summer house provides storage for bikes, if needed.

Follow the impressive castle walls around the historical town Berwick-Upon-Tweed (3.5 miles) and take in the views of the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that lies to the south of here. It has 30 miles of sandy beaches to discover, including Cocklawburn Beach which is only 1.2 miles from the property. With more castles than any other county in England, history buffs will be in their element, so be sure to visit Lindisfarne (12 miles), Bamburgh (18 miles) and Alnwick (29 miles). Wildlife enthusiasts can enjoy seal-spotting on Lindisfarne, whilst a boat trip to the Farne Islands from Seahouses (22 miles) will provide ample bird-spotting opportunities.

A well-equipped cottage. Spotlessly clean. Really good quality bed linen and towels were much appreciated. Also the sea views and the daily sight of a hare just outside on the grass!

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.
