This cosy retreat is nestled in the heart of scenic countryside, combining the amenities of village life with the unspoiled wilds of the border region, with many famous landmarks nearby.

One of four cottages built on the site of a former colliery, just a short walk from the local beaches and beautiful Northumberland coastline.

Perfectly located for enjoying Northumberland’s coast and charming towns and villages. The beach is a short stroll away, while the charming town of Berwick is within two miles. Here you’ll find a selection of independent shops and welcoming eateries wet within the original town walls built in 1588. The town was a favourite of artist LS. Lowry, and with its picturesque bridges and old buildings, it’s not hard to see the appeal. Attractions in the area include Bamburgh, Alnwick and Dunstanburgh castles, pretty little coastal fishing villages and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne which can be reached at low tide via the tidal causeway.

Sleeping four guests across two delightful bedrooms, one double and one twin, the cottage is comfortable and modern. With cosy beds, soft leather sofas and a private courtyard with garden dining furniture from which you can enjoy the vast, open countryside views, it is well set up for your relaxation. The bedrooms share a stylish bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle, sink and WC. The kitchen with its sleek design is well-equipped with everything you’ll need to make the most of the wonderful produce which is available in the local area. Featuring a dining table with seating for four, it is open plan with the lounge and offers an electric oven, hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer dryer and microwave.

Outside, a private courtyard looks out over the shared paddock area which has a play area with slide, swings and trampoline – perfect for the children to burn some energy while the adults watch on with a cool drink! The grassy paddock area is well-suited to outdoor games or picnics in the sunshine.

Due to current situation, unfortunately the outdoor play equipment will not be available.

A very good property in an ideal location for exploring North Northumberland and beyond. Just right for a family of 4, with all the essential equipment including very comfy beds, and homemade scones on arrival! Beaches within 5 minutes drive, and Berwick similarly for all facilities.

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.
