Ideally located just a short walk from stunning beaches, this complex of five-star cottages is great for family holidays or romantic retreats in the beautiful Borders region.

This charming cottage is one of four found in a woodland retreat just minutes from the beach. Found in the village of Scremerston, it benefits from expansive field views that stretch out towards the sea.

Scremerston was the hub of the local coal industry until 1944, and the present owners purchased the old colliery buildings to lovingly create this 5-star quality accommodation. Located on the original coaching route from London to Edinburgh, it lies within peaceful surroundings and is the perfect base to access all the local border towns and Northumberland’s unspoiled coastline.

Berwick, with its quirky shops, restaurants and independent cafes, is just two miles away. The town, surrounded by the original town walls built back in 1588, is steeped in history, and the painter LS Lowry was a regular visitor. He is honoured with the Lowry Trail that meanders around and through the town. A short drive away the historical castles of Bamburgh, Alnwick and Dunstanburgh await your exploration, or you can discover quaint picturesque fishing villages dotted around the coast. A trip to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, with its unique access across the tidal causeway, is a worthy way to spend some time.

The seaside property offers a large courtyard and a variety of sitting area/picnic spots to choose from. Children will love the large outdoor children’s paddock play area with a slide, swings and trampoline. The local shops, pub and a restaurant are just a mile away, so you can buy your provisions on the way before arriving any time after 4pm.

Inside the house, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner flows nicely through the simple colour scheme and is practical and comfy. There is a TV and DVD player for evenings in, and the kitchen is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, a washer dryer and a microwave. There are two bright and airy bedrooms, one a double, the other a twin, while the sleek bathroom has a separate shower cubicle, bath and WC. A private decked area at the back of the property is enclosed from the far-reaching views by a low-level fence and there is seating area upon which to while away the hours, watching and listening to the local wildlife.

Amenities include ample off-road parking and the bed-linen, electricity, central heating and Wi-Fi are all included. No smoking or pets are allowed at this property.

Lovely comfortable cottage in a great location, ideal for exploring Northumberland.

Reviewed by Mark 20th July 2019

The cottage was one of four that are built together. The two bedrooms were upstairs and the bathroom was downstairs. There was a double room and twin room ideal for our children. The kitchen was well equipped with a washing machine and dishwasher. The town is not to far away where Asda was a little further was Morrison's.

We received a warm welcome and Martin was attentive and very helpful. The lodge was cosy warm and had everything we needed. Its in a beautiful location just 5 minutes drive to Cocklawburn beach and easy quick drive to Lindesfarne. Berwick is 2 minute drive away with plenty of places to get food shopping. We would totally recommend Woodlands as a plRead moreace to stay and explore Northumberland. 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.

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.
