This traditional cottage enjoys a great location, in close proximity to one of Northumberland's best-loved beaches and with access to excellent stargazing and all the beauty of the Scottish Borders.

Windy Gyle is a lovely, welcoming traditional holiday cottage for two just around the corner from the long, sandy beach and promenade in the seaside village of Spittal, near Berwick-upon-Tweed and close to the beautiful Scottish borders. Spittal beach is said to be one of the best beaches in the whole of Northumberland and from it you can see the Holy island of Lindisfarne and even walk there along the golden sands and by continuing along the scenic coastal path. In the car, you can reach the stunning coastal village of Bamburgh for a visit to the magnificent Castle, Grace Darling Museum and great shops and restaurants in under 30 minutes. You can also walk the 10-mile coastal path all the way down to Creswell beach near Druridge Bay - making sure to stop for a lunch and drinks on the way, naturally!

The cottage is over 150 years old and has been lovingly refurbished by its owners with everything you will need during your stay. There is open plan living accommodation and modern kitchen facilities downstairs and a comfortable King size bedroom and a shower room upstairs. Outside to the rear, there is a spacious, south-facing patio area, perfect for sitting out in the sunshine or, enjoying a BBQ meal after a day out and about exploring the many nearby attractions.

The historic market town of Berwick-upon-Tweed is only a 4-minute drive and offers great days out. Walk through the ancient Quay walls to find the beach and pier, watch the boats coming and going along the river estuary, take a boat trip to see the local bird and wildlife. There are lots of fun festivals, sporting and cultural events taking place throughout the year and you can find plenty of independent, quirky shops, plus all the main shops within the town centre. Berwick’s train station can get you to Edinburgh and Newcastle for day trips and on your doorstep, Spittal has a great village shop close to the cottage and a pub too!

Perfect cottage, one of the best we have had and absolutely spotlessly clean.

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.
