Beautiful cottage in a pretty village, close to the fabulous Heritage coastline with breath-taking scenery and fantastic beaches on your doorstep. Perfect base to explore the spectacular Northumberland AONB.

Fantastically located for beach days, this home is a wonderful destination for lovers of salty, sandy days. Greeted by a lovely welcome pack, make yourselves at home and settle in the inviting, open-plan living space which creates a tranquil heart of the home, perfect for both sociable and relaxing evenings. Sleeping four over two bedrooms, bring your dog along and have a ball hunting out fantastic stick-chasing spots with all the family.

Climb two steps to make your way into this cosy cottage and leave any extra layers and shoes in the handy utility room, great for wiping down muddy paws after days out and about. Head through to the kitchen where a coffee machine is a welcome sight and there are plenty of appliances to help you cook up a storm. Dish up at the table beside the French doors or step down and onto the patio for an al fresco feast in the garden. Breaking up the space in the living area is a warming wood burner, perfect for lighting on chilly days after time spent exploring. Settle down in front of the TV or rifle through the cupboard which is stacked with games, DVDs, puzzles and books, before enjoying a family evening in the bright lounge. Say goodnight and climb stairs to the first-floor bedrooms, both of which have beautiful views over the garden. Enjoy a soak in the contemporary family bathroom before taking little ones to play in the treehouse (shared with other properties on-site). There is off-road parking for two cars.

Escape to the coast for a day full of sand, sea and surf. Make a splash in the water at Beadnell Bay (7 miles) where you can try your hand at water sports or hop on a boat from Seahouses (7.5 miles) to the magical Farne Islands which are brimming with wildlife, including seals and puffins. Take to the green at one of the local golf courses, including the course at Bamburgh (7 miles) which has magnificent sea views. Or visit Alnwick Castle and Gardens for a Harry Potter-inspired day.

We've just arrived home from a lovely, relaxing holiday at The Butterchurn. The cottage was equipped with everything you could need and more for a comfortable and stylish stay.

Care - This is a lovely, comfortable cottage which is well equipped, however the neighbouring hall is a wedding event venue and the surrounding cottages are owned and used by the guests. There is a live music licence until midnight, so please consider carefully before your stay.

Such a peaceful location enhanced by the fact its an end property with a lovely big garden. Great to wake up to the sounds of birds, including peacocks. Thoroughly enjoyed the lightness of the living room and having breakfast with the door wide open. Suited our family of three perfectly.

Unfortunately The Butter Churn wasnt what we expected - its a new build in a small housing development. That said, its a high quality, attractive new build and in a good location for exploring Northumberland. Would be good for a family with 2 small kids due to the playground but would be very cramped for 4 adults. The shower and bath are also tiny.Read more So it depends what youre after! 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.
