Former fisherman’s cottage located within meters of the sandy beach and long promenade, perfect base for a family or couples to explore Northumberland’s coast, historic castles and beautiful countryside.

Only metres from a sandy beach, this coastal retreat is perfect for families who want to explore South Northumberland. Tucked away in the peaceful town of Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, this property offers you a seaside location without the crowds. Only a few hundred metres from the sea front and esplanade, you have a choice of eateries and shops on your doorstep, as well as a sandy beach to keep the kids happy. Looking across the bay, you can watch the sunrise, marvel at The Couple, a sculpture out on the breakwater, and keep an eye out for marine animals.

This beautifully refurbished fisherman’s cottage is light and airy throughout with plenty of charm. Although modest in size, it has everything you’ll need for a comfortable stay. You enter into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner where you can cook up some treats, snuggle up in front of the wood burner or gather around the table for a meal or a game. After a busy day exploring, head upstairs to tuck your kids into the quirky bunkroom before retiring to your well-presented king-size bedroom. Completing the accommodation is a family bathroom with a shower over the bath.

Newbiggin-by-the-Sea has lots to discover, including the Maritime Centre Museum and Cafe, or 2.5 miles away is the Woodhorn Museum which digs into Northumberland’s mining past. Unspoiled, sandy Cresswell Beach (5 miles) is also worth a visit or, if you’re birdwatchers, head to Druridge Bay (11.5 miles) which is a haven for nature lovers. Amble (13.5 miles) has a range of shops and eateries including the unique wooden retail pods in the Harbour Village. It’s also home to an annual Puffin Festival which celebrates the cute ‘clowns of the sea’. You can also walk 1.5 miles from here along the River Coquet to Warkworth Castle.

Lovely cottage, ideally situated for the beach & also to walk the dog ( far end of beach ). Very well equipped even down to the welcome pack & doggie treats. Lovely little town with supermarket, pubs, cafes & restaurants. Also a very good chippie & pizza places if you fancy a takeaway. We found it an ideal base for visiting Alnwick, Bamburgh & HolyRead more Island, also some local beauty spots worth a visit which are mentioned in the information file. All in all a relaxing stay & will book again. 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.
