This cottage is one of the best we have stayed in. It is well equipped, super comfortable beds, fab shower and lovely toiletries, and good WiFi, which our kids appreciated. The arrival provisions provided by the friendly owner are a welcome touch. You can go on a gentle nature walk from the doorstep which the host has printed out on a beautifully iRead morellustrated leaflet, relax in the well maintained private garden or head out to explore Northumberland and the Scottish border region.

Although cottage was in a remote area, shops, beaches etc were only a 10 minute drive away. Couldn't have asked for more. And the cottage owner was in touch with us during our stay and left a much appreciated welcome pack. First class!!

The cottage was in a perfect location for us and able to go sightseeing every day. We got the train to Edingburgh on one day and had a great day there and looking round the castle - you need to book tickets before arriving and then collect.

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.
