Lovely cosy little cottage, ideal for the pup with the field to run around in right outside. Plenty of short and longer walks just a short drive away. Close enough to town but still felt really peaceful, and a lovely warm welcome!

A very nice property in beautiful peaceful surroundings. Location great, 5 minutes drive to Hexham with lots of facilities but completely quiet and undisturbed at the property. Good base for exploring the Northumberland area. Ideal for a couple wanting to get away from it all! NB dogs are allowed at the property which I didn't realise when booking Read moreand some dog hairs. Mostly clean but a couple of areas missed by the cleaner. Owner very quick to respond and get a new hairdryer when it broke. Hide

Firstly, location, excellent, down a single track road, then through a gated entrance. Big mown field to side of property, secure and great to let your dog run loose. Secondly, the accommodation, compact, kitchen, diner and living room all in one, but for 2, it's excellent. Comfy, bed, good shower. Can't really fault it. Our host is on site in mainRead more house, very friendly, not intrusive. A lovely place to stay. Not often I return to properties, but this one I would. Thank you. Hide

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
