This stylish large country cottage is the perfect place for family gatherings. Light and spacious, it offers beautiful views, nearby beaches and wonderful days out at local historic attractions.

Rafters is a beautifully finished, stone-built holiday cottage in Beadnell - with a light and airy atmosphere and excellent facilities, making it the perfect choice for a fun, family holiday at any time of year. The cottage is located in a small hamlet called Tughall Steads, and is just minutes from the stunning Northumberland Coast - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) - with nearby beaches including Low Newton (just 6 minutes’ drive) and the popular Beadnell Bay (only 9 minutes away).

From here, you can enjoy the best of both worlds - with access to breath-taking, country landscapes and wonderful seaside villages like Low Newton-by-the-Sea - offering lovely beach walks where the ancient ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle provide a powerful backdrop, followed by some hard-earned food and drink at  locally renowned The Ship Inn. The peaceful countryside is right on your doorstep - while Beadnell’s beautiful beach and crescent-shaped bay are nearby, where you can enjoy watching or taking part in a range of exciting water sports sports (such as windsurfing, body boarding and kitesurfing, to name a few!).

There is an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and washing machine, and a table seating up to six guests. The spacious lounge has two large sofas where you can relax and a TV/DVD player. A feature fireplace with gas wood burner style fire is a comfortable place to cosy up to in the evenings, while watching one of the VHS films on the retro video player. Windows overlook the garden to the rear and the shared courtyard, parking area at the front. Stairs lead up to the master ,double bedroom with high ceilings and exposed beams. There is a TV in the bedroom and an armchair for your convenience. The two other bedrooms both have twin beds and a bathroom with bath and overhead shower, basin and WC complete the first floor.

Very homely and a great size. Loved loved loved the house, it has everything you need. We went as a family and it was very comfortable for all of us. The size meant that we were not falling over each other. Loved Seahouses village and beach and Bamburgh is stunning. Will definitely be back.

Location

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.
