Very attractive and characterful cottage which is all on one level. A very interesting location with a wonderful garden and orchard which the owners of the property (live next door) are happy to share with you. Thoroughly recommended and hope to visit again in the future.

A lovely cottage, with private courtyard, just a few minutes walk from a sandy beach and 20 or so minutes walk from Berwick upon Tweed. We had a warm welcome from Judith on arrival who showed us round. Everything was very clean and tidy. We had a lovely stay

Very welcoming cottage with a lovely patio, good parking. Near the sea, very quiet, lovely garden view. Easy access to A1, shopping and Berwick.

Reviewed by H 22nd June 2019

A beautiful, comfortable property, with lots of thoughtful touches. Very close to the beach, with a village shop literally round the corner, and close to the bus stop for Berwick. The back yard is a pleasure to sit in on a sunny afternoon - and there are shelves full of books for rainy days. One of the nicest places we've stayed in.

A lovely cottage with a touch of luxury. Everything you could wish for in a holiday let. Probably more suited to a family with two young children than two couples due to the layout of the second bedroom.Lots of books and games, dvds, and cds to entertain you - plus a piano - but the beach is just around the corner! The seating in the lounge (a futoRead moren and an old chair) is uncomfortable and the only thing that lets the cottage down. Hide

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.
