This delightful stone built, detached holiday cottage offers couples the perfect coastal retreat in the traditional fishing village of Boulmer.

Discover the stunning Northumberland coast with your loved one while staying in this gorgeous seaside cottage for an unforgettable romantic break. This peaceful area can be discovered by foot or bike thanks to the scenic coastal path running the length of the county. Discover fun-filled days out visiting castles, observing sea life or sipping Earl Grey tea at its place of origin, then head back for a cosy night in with your partner. If you've got dogs, they can come along too as this property welcomes up to two canine guests.

This bungalow is a peaceful haven, with original features such as wooden ceiling beams that add to its charm. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is perfect for relaxing in, perhaps reading a magazine or watching some TV together. Meals just like at home can be prepared in the well-equipped kitchen. Outside, you'll find a patio with lovely sea views where you can enjoy afternoon coffee and cake while taking in the pretty surroundings.

In Boulmer, enjoy a quiet pint in the local pub or have a nose at the work in the small art gallery. Look out for the traditional wooden coble fishing boats, which are still used to catch crab, lobster and sea salmon today. To stretch your legs, wander along the coast to Alnmouth (3.5 miles), a picturesque village on the edge of the River Aln. Here you'll find painted houses and village shops to explore, plus a beach that's perfect for playing badminton or just lazing back on. Howick (4 miles) is the home of Earl Grey tea – head to the tea room to enjoy home-cooked scones with a cup of the world-famous brew.

The cottage was lovely and cosy, well positioned for the coastal path & all the lovely walks. Ideal for the dog with an enclosed garden to keep them safe, pub close by but not dog friendly but there is an outside seating area if the weather is dry. A lovely & relaxing stay.

Great location. 30 seconds from the sea. Very comfortable beds. Friendly owner. Great coastal walks in the area. Alnmouth nearby is an interesting place - as are Craster, Warkworth. Nice fish/chips at the Boulmer pub. Very good Coop at Longhoughton. Nice cafe in Alnmouth and an excellent meal at the italian style restaurant there (which also servesRead more fish/chips). 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.
