The cottage was ideal for our holiday and was in a beautiful setting. The kitchen was well equipped with space for our own food. The small patio with table was ideal for sitting outside and we could have used the larger garden close by. The owner was friendly and helpful.

Reviewed by Carl 8th March 2019

Ideally placed a few miles from Newcastle off the A1, close to excellent pubs serving food and Supermarkets, and only five miles from Beamish Muesum (which the owners provide you with a voucher for 25% off the entrance fee) Accomodation is excellent with a very comfortable double and single bedroom, a fully equipped open plan kitchen come sitting rRead moreoom tastefully decorated and benefiting from under floor heating, not the biggest bathroom but again very well equipped and spotlessly clean.

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.
