Delighted with the cottage, just refurbished in many parts. Lots of space. Very clean throughout. Very well equipped cottage, extra amenities brilliant. We will definitely consider coming back and will recommend to family and friends. Plenty of parking, wonderful welcome. We ordered our shopping to be delivered. We used the swimming pool facilitiesRead more, which was a lovely treat. The cottage is spacious comfy and extremely well equipped. We took the train from Berwick to Edinburgh for a day out at the castle and Scottish Museum. We also recommend the boat trips around the Farne Islands departing from Seahouses. For horse riding we went on a hack at Townfoot Riding Stables at Shilbottle, lovely horses and staff, extremely helpful, lovely countryside hack. Bamburgh Castle interesting and right next to the lovely beach. Alnwick Castle and Gardens were a fab day out, if the weather is good the gardens are super for kids. 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.
