The upstairs living area and kitchen is well appointed, spacious and comfortable. The outside balcony would be good to use in fair weather. As a couple we decided to make use of both bedrooms. The beds are doubles and against a wall. I think we would have struggled had there been four of us. The electric gates gave us security for the car.

Suitably located for exploring Northumberland. Whilst the bedrooms are rather small the upstairs open plan living space more than made up for it. We felt there were a few small improvements that could be made but despite these we would definitely look to return.

We don't feel able to give a review considering our comments above. Having stayed in a few cottages recently, it was clear to us that there is a lack of attention to detail here. It's a shame, because the location is good, the surrounding fields are lovely and the cottage is generally comfortable.

Lovely place to go to, good sized rooms, really homely, good cooking facilities (although we always take our own slow cooker and utensils.) If we didn't like it we wouldn't keep on coming back time and time again. John and Susan are a lovely welcoming couple and provide welcome goodies, they even put a Christmas tree up for us.

Whinneycook Cottage was fabulous. I don't think we have ever stayed in such a well appointed and creatively laid out holiday property before. It was spotlessly clean and spacious with plenty of room for ourselves and two dogs. The roof terrace was a real treat on sunny days with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. The property adjoins thRead moree owners house, but we never felt overlooked and the cottage benefits from the extra security of the owners electronic gates. Hide

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
