Set near a tranquil Northumberland village by the coast, this spacious and stylish single-storey cottage for two is perfect for an idyllic holiday in picturesque surroundings.

The picturesque coastal village of Bamburgh is steeped in history, with Bamburgh Castle, once home to the Kings of Northumbria, just a short drive away, and the famous Holy Island of Lindisfarne is also easily accessible. You can also visit the fascinating RNLI Grace Darling Museum or St Aidan’s Church, the site of which dates back over a thousand years, and guests to this property can enjoy free entry to Paxton House. Bamburgh is also famous for its glorious three mile sandy beach as well as some wonderful shops, tearooms, pubs and restaurants. You will find miles of walking and cycling routes or you can visit the pretty village of Lucker or the picturesque bird sanctuary at Budle Bay.

Smartly clad in black shiplap boards, this property has the look of a Scandinavian summerhouse and is just as cosy and warm inside. On entering this lovely single-level ground-floor holiday home, which has been lovingly converted from a former agricultural building, you will find yourself in the bright and attractive open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Tastefully furnished, with comfy seating, TV and a traditional wood burner set on a reclaimed natural stone hearth, the light and airy lounge is a great space to relax and snuggle up in following a fantastic day exploring this fantastic area. You will also find a charming dining area with breakfast-bar style table and chairs, and the stylishly designed kitchen is fully equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge and cafetiere. Exploring this property further you will find a cosy double bedroom, and there’s also a shower room complete with walk-in shower and WC.

From both the lounge and the bedroom, French doors lead out into the garden, which has an enclosed patio area overlooking beautiful countryside with a small bistro table and two chairs, a raised flower bed and garden ornaments. There is off-road parking for one car in the shared parking courtyard behind the cottage. During your stay you might be lucky to catch a glimpse of a Northumberland red squirrel, from the comfort of the cottage. There is a special feeder outside the property where guests can encourage visits by placing hazelnuts in the special feeders. Sit back, relax and enjoy the sightings!

Popular Seahouses, known to many as ‘the village by the sea', is the ideal location for a seaside holiday or short break in Northumberland. This picturesque coastal village is an excellent base from which to explore the whole of the Northumberland Coast and countryside.

Famed for its picturesque harbour and panoramic views of the spectacular Farne Islands, the bustling fishing village of Seahouses features everything you would expect from a seaside holiday and more. All the beaches in the area are dog-friendly, while there is also a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted. For the adventurous, there are breath-taking coastal paths to trek or scuba diving to enjoy and for those interested in local history, there is a broad spectrum of historical landmarks to discover nearby including the magnificent castles of Bamburgh and Alnwick.

There are boats trips taking visitors to see the spectacular wildlife habitats on the Farne Islands all year round. But if you’d rather stay on land there is Bamburgh Castle Golf Club, one of the most scenic golf courses in Britain, or guided walking tours of the beautiful coast to indulge in. Helping to maintain the character of the village, the variety of independent shops provides a unique shopping experience as well as a great opportunity to get your hands on some delicious local produce.
