The cottage was very comfortable and in a great location being close to Alnwick and the coast. Impressed with the air source heat pump and electric vehicle charging point. Easy booking process, frequent reminders and good level of info in the emails (door codes etc). We always enjoy Barter Books and Grannies Tea Rooms in Alnwick and you cant beat tRead morehe area for beaches and castles. Fish and chips in Seahouses is a must too - Lewiss in the best in our opinion. Hide

We had a nice time and enjoyed the cottage, being very spacious and quite well equipped (and great WiFi!), nice furniture and quite comfortable. Enjoyed the beaches, castles, Lindisfarne along the causeway, and more. Out on the boat to see the Seals lovely. Recommend the Joiners Arms, but there are many great pubs and restaurants around here.

We've never visited the area or considered it as a holiday destination before so we were surprised with everything Northumberland had to offer and we'll definitely be back! A lovely house ideally situated close to beaches but in a rural location with a great view of the stars of an evening. The beaches are amazing, beautiful and there's so many of Read morethem in such close proximity to the house. Excellent facilities, Mr W always takes his knives with him and usually feels like he's "making do with the kitchen facilities when we stay at a holiday home, but not with this one... Very impressive! We've never visited the area or considered it as a holiday destination before so we were surprised with everything Northumberland had to offer and we'll definitely be back!

Beautiful house with plenty of toys for my son to play with (he ignored all the toys we'd brought with us to entertain him!) Highly recommended, a real gem! Hide

The cottage was situated in a rural area affording peace and quiet. Many of the sensational beaches were only 10 to 20 minutes away. They were unbelievably empty most of the time. Our favourite places we visited were Newton by the sea, Cragside (fabulous) and Bamborough Castle

A well appointed cottage, with easy access to local beaches and attractions.

First impressions of the cottage didn't do it justice. The location is excellent and it is comfortable enough to relax in after a day of walking in beautiful Northumberland. The local beaches are gorgeous and castles well worth a visit, especially Alnwick for a day. All the coast is simply breathtaking....easily some of the best in the UK.

We enjoyed our stay in Northumberland. The cottage met all of our basic requirements and although it was a little remote away from the main village, it had good access to the A1 and was never more than 30 minutes away from local attractions.

Fabulous cottage, close to A1 to make travel to local areas quick and easy. User guide was great and packed with info and fantastic recommendations. Loved the toys and games to keep kids (and grown ups) busy when we were indoors. Would recommend to families or couples wanting a romantic break. Wish we'd had longer...

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.
