This 19th Century, single storey cottage can sleep four people in two bedrooms and is loacted near to Belford in Northumberland.

This sympathetically restored nineteenth century cottage, made from traditional stone in the rural hamlet of Bellshill, lies only two miles from the pretty village of Belford. A short drive from the sweeping Northumberland coast, this cottage has fantastic, panoramic views to Budle Bay, Bamburgh Castle and the Farne Islands, not forgetting the impressive Heritage Coast. Decorated in a crisp, modern style and tastefully furnished, this period home still manages to retain much of its old-world charm.

Excellent location. Just a few niggles.
Our main concern when booking this cottage was the potential for traffic noise as it's so close to the A1, but we needn't have worried as it was wonderfully quiet and the views to Bamburgh Castle were a real bonus. The house itself is very tastefully furnished and the main living space and dining area we found very comfortable. The kitchen is super small but all the appliances were fully functioning, although some families may miss the lack of a separate microwave. The beds in both bedrooms were the main problem for us, the mattress in the double room was too soft for our liking and the twin beds were not best suited to two young teenaged boys. We didn't find the outdoor eating space too appealing as the bbq was tipped onto the ground and the sight of a large gas tank close by was a turn-off. However the peaceful front garden with regular visits from rabbits was lovely. The wifi wasn't working for us, but we took it as an opportunity to unplug from the net for a few days. The collection of books, dvd's and welcome hamper were all very welcome and any minor issues we had were very promptly dealt with by the owner. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay and just a little extra care would have made it even more special.

Pheasant Cottage was clean and comfortable with every home comfort catered for. It was close to everywhere we wanted to go with the A1 very easily accessible.
Mrs Suttling

It was very handy for accessing coastal walks and also the Cheviots. It was just off the A1 but very quiet with outstanding views to Bamburgh and the coast. Sunrises, great skies and rich birdsong - an artist's dream! The cottage was very comfortable, warm, well appointed and overall excellent. There was a lot of care given by the owners so that their customers enjoy their holiday.
Mrs Wilson

As returnees, it was like coming home and even the neighbours welcomed us back. The cottage was superb as ever, even though it had been well used (according to the visitors book) over the last season. Both the owners and cleaner do an excellent job maintaining a very high standard. We will be returning again.
Mrs Woodhall

No complaints at all. The location was superb and our holiday was more than we expected. A very clean and comfortable property with peace and quiet and stunning views.
