Dolphin Dream Cottage has been thoughtfully designed to make the very most of the beautiful surrounding scenery - with arched French doors leading from the well equipped kitchen to a private terrace and lawned gardens. The views towards Holy Island can also be enjoyed from the living room, where you’ll find a fantastic wood burning stove set in a stone fireplace - great for those cosy nights in.

Wow, wow, wow!!! Absolutely brilliant cottage in a superb location, with more home comforts than our home. Perfect location for our two small families and such beautiful views of Holy Island causeway from the kitchen window. Stay here and you wont be disappointed.

Wonderful quiet location, with great views.

The cottage is spacious, well cleaned and well equipped (top brand appliances). Comfort is good, but not brilliant: the sofas are not up to the same standard as the equipment, in terms of materials and back support. It's reasonable value for money: the quality broadly justifies what is charged. The location is very good: the lovely view sweeps downRead more to the coast, including the Lindisfarne causeway and the East Coast Main Line. The A1 is less pleasant, but it's mostly concealed.

Dolphin Dream is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Loved the walk along the beach at Low Newton and the walk to Dunstanburgh. The wild weather added to the enjoyment. We were very happy with the facilities and the property was very clean. The people I booked with over the phone were extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

An ideal location to visit all local and not so local places of interest. Cottage was 1 min from A1 route to wherever you wished to travel! Amble and Warkworth were very good indeed, but the favourites are still the walk from Craster to Dunstanburgh Castle along the coast, and the beautiful Low Newton, with the Ship Inn and the most wonderful beachRead more with views across Embleton Bay to Dunstanburgh....Northumberland is magical and the people are rather special too! Overall we enjoyed a great week in the cottage which met with everyone's approval! Got a mix of some great Northumberland weather as well -sea fret, sunshine, rain, wind - perfect! Hide

A beautiful cottage in a peaceful location with stunning vista views across fields out to Lindisfarne. Excellent facilities and very comfortable. Could suit small family.

Good location, safe garden, quiet. We visited at a time when many attractions were closed for the winter. However Bamburgh Castle and village and beach were open and perfect for a day. Alnwick Castle Gardens and restaurant were amazing. Beautiful. The area was perfect for our family holiday.

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.
