Tastefully decorated in a charming coastal style, this contemporary cottage is the perfect choice for family getaways with your four-legged friends.

Newton Halt South is just a couple of miles from two of the best beaches on the Northumberland Heritage Coast and a short walk to a welcoming local pub and shop. Low Newton by the Sea boasts the much-acclaimed Ship Inn which serves great seafood and has its own micro-brewery. Nearby is the award-winning Joiners Arms gastro pub from where you can walk to another amazing three miles of white sand which forms Beadnell Bay. Five miles south, Craster village and harbour has always been famous for its kippers but is now also equally well know for The Jolly Fisherman Pub and restaurant which sits on the edge of the sea and so, has fantastic views. These, like most of the pubs in Northumberland, are child and dog friendly. From Seahouses you can take a boat trip to the Farne Islands where puffins and seals abound but where dolphins are also regularly seen. Just 15 minutes drive is Alnwick with its famous castle and gardens but also a regular outdoor market, four supermarkets and local shops.

Newly renovated to a high specification with sound and thermal insulation, this seaside style cottage has a Scandinavians style, modern interior. There is free, high speed Wi-Fi and a large wall-mounted Smart TV. The property is centrally heated with the added benefit of a romantic log burning stove.

Outside there is an enclosed dog-friendly garden which gets the sun most of the day and right into the evening. There is little light pollution and so the dark skies are truly spectacular for star gazing! There is direct access to countryside and woodland walks, with abundant wildlife to be spotted, sometimes even from the comfort of the leather sofa. There is off-road parking for two cars and a shed to store beach stuff and bicycles. The cottage is situated off a small, private, cul-de-sac.

This cottage also welcomes up to 2 well-behaved dogs.

The cottage was attractive and stylish. However due to the inaccessibility of the shower it is not suitable for elderly or frail people with reduced mobility. The positioning of the microwave is at such a high level.

Terrific cottage perfect for Granny, me and my two children. Woodburner and open kitchen diner perfect for our needs. We had a fantastic stay. Not in a village and the nearby pub doesn't serve food other than Sunday when we were there. We would have liked one pub meal instead of cooking evenings but equipment sufficient for all we needed.

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.
