Overall the cottage is in an excellent location for touring around. The cottage is clean and the equipment is good but there are a few areas in the cottage that need some attention.

The cottage looked a little tired in places, though it was the end of the season. The main bedroom was rather small, but the bed was very comfortable. Apart from that, the cottage was exceptionally well equipped, and very clean and comfortable with no sign of any pets being there. The property is only minutes from the A1 so ideal for exploring the Read morecoast, and the Kielder Forest and moors can be visited in a day, and well worth the trip. I would definitely recommend this as a dog friendly cottage. Hide

The location of the cottage was fantastic for all of the delights which Northumberland has to offer. We had brilliant days at Alnwick castle, gardens, Bamburgh beach, Cragside and the Farne islands. We also did some lovely coastal walks and ventured inland to the national park. Would definitely come back to this area.

We chose this cottage for the location, for which we could not fault. A stones throw from the A1, castles and beautiful beaches easily reached. It turned cold while we were there but the house was lovely and warm once we worked out how to work the heating. A booklet of instructions about the house, heating and equipment would be good, also details Read moreof the nearest food shop, as they are few and far between. Sky, Netflix and WiFi was great And kitchen well equipped Hide

We enjoyed our stay, the cottage was in a great location for the places we wanted to go to. The cleanliness of the property however is of concern, particularly given the current Covid climate. Very little effort had gone into any form of cleaning, we are not a meticulous family having 3 energetic, outdoorsy children but the house could do with a hoRead moreover, dust and general clean. It also does not have a freezer as advertised and I would question outdoor storage. Hide

Nice house and a perfect base to explore the area. Comfortable beds all nice and clean. Plenty of room for six of us and our three dogs. Added bonus of swallow nest just above bedroom window which allowed a very good view of extremely busy parents.

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.
