Dating from around 1840, this property is one of the oldest in the village and has been sympathetically restored, retaining many of the original period features.

On the outskirts of the village of Christon Bank, just a five minute drive from the wonderful beaches of the Northumbrian Heritage Coast, lies the traditional stone built farm dwelling called Gabby Cottage. Offering tasteful, comfortable accommodation, this lovely little cottage boasts an open fire and multi-fuel stove as well as an established garden - making it great for visits throughout the year. Able to sleep a total of six people, this property is a great home-from-home for anyone looking to explore the wide rolling hills and fantastic activities this region has to offer.


We enjoyed the location of the property - it was great to be so close to beaches and castles. We also enjoyed coming back to the cottage - it provided plenty of space for our family and was very quaint too. We felt very at home!
Mrs Foster

A warm and comfortable cottage.
Mr Langthorp

A good centre for exploring the coast. We looked forward to coming back to our cosy cottage each evening.
Mrs Sudworth

Accomodation was perfect for a family holiday, well equipped kitchen. We did have a problem with the hot water but one phone call to the landlord and it was sorted within in the day. The location was great, short drive to Low Newton with the excellent Ship Inn pub and beach. Great for exploring Northumberland. Parking wasn't an issue but was on street and the road could be quite busy at times - just needed to keep this in mind with little ones around. All in all a fabulous comfortable stay in a great location.

Have just come home from the most memorable weekend away at Gabby Cottage in Christon Bank. On arrival what a lovely surprise to find two full vases of fresh flowers, bottle of white wine, Organic eggs and bacon, coffee, freshly baked bread and teabags etc. The attention to detail was just superb and the cottage is equipped to a very high standard. The weather has been superb and we were sad to leave. Would highly recommend this property to all. We all absolutely loved the cottage. Thank you to the owner for excellent service.
