Superbly located on the dramatic Northumberland coast, this converted farm cottage offers comfortable beach-side accommodation, a sense of tranquillity and a wealth of outdoor activities.

This holiday cottage sleeping up to eight people forms part of a farm conversion in the charming hamlet of Low Newton.

Much of the area is owned by the National Trust, including the scenic coastal trail south to Cranston via Dunstanburgh Castle, which can be walked in around two hours. Low Newton itself features whitewashed old fisherman’s cottages and the famous Ship Inn, which features its own micro-brewery and serves delicious fare including fresh lobster from Newton Bay. Windsurf from the beach, play golf at a local course or drive to Alnwick to marvel at its ‘Harry Potter’ castle.

Accommodation in the three-bedroom cottage is all on one level and is accessed via the back door, which leads into a large kitchen with everything you need for your break, including a dining table seating up to six, microwave and dishwasher. A washing machine and tumble dryer can be found in the hallway. Both the lounge and dining room look out on to the picturesque dunes; the former features two comfortable sofas, TV and a selection of games, while the latter provides a quieter space in which to unwind at a table that seats up to eight. A door from the dining room leads to a large porch at the front of the cottage, perfect for drying rain-soaked clothes (this is Northumberland, so it’s likely!) and wetsuits. You will love the beach vistas from the two tastefully decorated queen-size bedrooms, while the third bedroom incorporates two sets of standard-size bunk beds. A bathroom with bath and WC is complemented by a separate shower room with WC.

The reason I have marked it down on value for money is having paid double what I have ever payed for a holiday let I expected more luxury. The cottage was clean, well equipped, comfortable and everything worked, except the hot water which we were without for the first 3 days, but for1000 and past experiences elsewhere I expected more.

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.
