Romantic retreat, ideally located in a friendly village in the heart of Northumberland, a perfect getaway for a couple and a comfortable base for exploring the whole of the county.

The location of this property makes it ideal for trips to seaside towns and unspoilt beaches like Alnmouth, as well as beautiful country villages and historic market towns and castles, like Rothbury and Alnwick. Walk to the village pub for a drink and a meal, with themed dining most days, and the village shop stocks just about everything you need. Enjoy breakfast or afternoon tea at the renowned restaurant/bakery in nearby Longframlington. Head to Druridge Beach and Country Park to stroll around the lake. Visit Amble’s fishing port for excellent seafood and Warkworth’s medieval castle. Morpeth has a good range of shops, restaurants and beautiful river walks and Newcastle’s bustling city life is an easy drive away.

Delightful cottage for two where the open-plan living space has been well set out, vaulted ceilings add to the sense of space and light, and thoughtful touches from the owner fill every corner. You enter the bright kitchen/diner where you can cook your meals, eat together and plan your next day’s adventure. The kitchen has everything you need including an electric oven and hob, a fridge, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. Walk through the arched wall into the well-presented lounge with a Smart TV and a stylish wood burner for warm, cosy nights snuggled up on the comfortable sofa. There is also an armchair if you prefer to sit and read quietly. There are windows on three sides and a door leads out to the rear garden. A door from the kitchen leads to the light and airy bedroom with a king-size bed. There is a small wardrobe for your things and a shelf and mirror where you can dry your hair. The window overlooks the rear garden, and a skylight fills the room with light during the day. The shower room has a glamourous, contemporary feel with a large shower and WC.

A door in the lounge leads out to the fully enclosed patio garden where you will find a hot tub in the corner where you can soak away your cares. A garden table and chairs are perfect for some al fresco dining or your morning coffees. A bike shed provides secure storage for your bikes, golfing or surfing gear. There is a bench seat out in the south-west facing, front garden too so you can enjoy some late afternoon sunshine. Parking for one car is off-road on the driveway, about 20 meters from the front door.

This is a little gem! Beautifully decorated and maintained. Everything you could possibly need is available. It is very clear that the owners have put real thought and care into the cottage and want their guests to want for nothing during their stay. Located in a quiet and pretty village with a pub and shop within a few minutes walk. The rear gardeRead moren is private, fully enclosed and so pretty. I would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to experience the beauty of the North East. 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.
