Sandy beaches, lovely villages, the stunning scenery of the National Park and more can be found in this great holiday destination.


The cottage was so well situated for getting out and about; very accessible for everywhere. The cottage was lovely, all on one level, and a bathroom for each of the bedrooms was a godsend. The owners were really helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay there again!

Owner very friendly without being over intrusive. Good advice given on local walk and places to go. A really relaxing characterful cottage. Northumberland offers a wide variety of coastal and inland areas to visit and places to see, well worth a visit.

Location - proximity to beaches and other attractions. The cottage allowed two dogs to stay and the owner was a dog-friendly person.
