The cottage was just right for the two of us and dog. Easy access by car to the coast and inland. There is also a good bus service. Clean, comfortable and friendly owners next door. Great view over the hills. Covid restrictions meant no local information or guides available, but this currently applies everywhere.

Lovely compact cottage with outstanding views from the back. When we arrived there were two small bottles of Prosecco which was a nice touch. The cottage is quite a walk from the nearest beach in Alnmouth and all uphill coming back but is definitely walkable. Beach at Warkworth is well worth a visit. About 10 minutes drive. Lovely evening walk downRead more to the river with its delightful stepping stones. Followed river to viaducts and back up to train station, circular walk about 4 miles. Hide

This is the third time we've stayed at the Summerhouse and we hope to come many more times. The view from the picture window is simply mesmerizing - if the countryside and wildlife don't capture your imagination, the trains sweeping majestically over the viaduct will!

We stayed at The Summerhouse the last week in October and it had quite limited heat sources, advance warning to bring plenty of wood for the burner. That said you could keep the main living area pretty warm during the evening with the wood burner and a blanket.

A compact property in a lovely location, ideal for one or two people (and dog). Great views and ideally placed for countryside and coast. Our only gripe was that the fold down bed was not particularly comfortable. Its otherwise a great little property.

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.
