We stayed in cottage 3 it was perfect. I cannot think of anything I would change everything had been thought of.

Reviewed by Donna 5th October 2019

The cottage was clean and tidy and well equipped apart from there being a musty smell in the kitchen. The dcor and finishings were of a good standard and the restaurant in the hotel and also leisure facilities were also very good. It was particularly noisy and busy on the Saturday that we arrived due to a wedding and we could not get parked near thRead moree cottage due to wedding guests parking in front which wasn't ideal. Overall we had an enjoyable stay. Hide

Lots of space and a green setting. Handy location and the bar menu includes tasty vegan and vegetarian options so you dont have to cook.

Reviewed by Anthony 16th February 2019

The cottage was situated in a beautiful part of the country and within easy reach of a number of places and attractions. As a whole the cottage was pleasant and warm but lacked a washing machine. (needed with small children when staying for a week) and the fire doors were somewhat heavy and closed with a bang. The availability of a good menu in theRead more hotel saved travelling out for the occasional meal in the evening. Hide

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.
