The Carriage House is a nicely presented, clean, light, comfortable and well-equipped cottage adjacent to the owners house. Its location made it a great base to explore the area. We particularly enjoyed Cragside House (NT) and Durham Cathedral.

Perfect cottage for a family. Very comfy and cosy with everything you could want for a holiday. Ideal location for visiting the beach and lots of other tourist attractions.

The cottage was in a good location to visit many different areas of Northumberland. The owner was friendly and helpful and offered advice on places to visit which would be easy for an elderly member of our party. She also gave us a full explanation of all the facilities in the cottage. The cottage was light, clean and spacious and en suite bathroomRead mores for both bedrooms was a bonus. The beautiful flowers lasted all week and the wine was a nice touch. Hide

A lovely spacious cottage with all the facilities you could need for a break away. Spotless, everything you could possibly need. Absolutely amazing week.

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.
