Utterly brilliant, clean, well equipped, comfortable, great location for sight seeing, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be going back again. Even the weather was great. Beaches in the north east are clean and unspoilt.

Rose Cottage is simply lovely, very cosy and comfortable with everything you need. Had a real laugh in the hot tub - recommend!. Also recommend eating in the Apple Inn in Lucker but book first as it is very popular. Thanks to Gabby for the shortbread and the welcome.

Very peaceful area. Lovely cottage with a shared hot tub. We were lucky as we had it to ourselves. Close to surrounding attractions. We were met by a lovely woman who showed us around and she left us some cakes too

Reviewed by Jim 13th October 2018

Perfect retreat location and a welcoming attitude from the contact on site. Warm property and well fitted with home comforts. A faster internet connection would be a bonus but who needs it on a rural break anyway.

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.
