This property sleeps four people in its two bedrooms and offers a family bathroom as well as a cloakroom downstairs. When you enter the front door, you are greeted with the stylishly decorated open plan kitchen, diner and lounge; perfect to accommodate a family. The kitchen is well equipped, with a great fridge/freezer, a Range Master-style oven and hob, and a microwave for you to whip up some delectable meals. And to the cottage's front, there is the set of French doors that lead out to the garden with a patio complete with wooden table and chairs. When you head up the stairs, you will find the two bedrooms one is a king size double, beautifully decorated with a window that looks out onto the estate, and the other a cosy twin. The family bathroom is upstairs, featuring a shower over the bath, with WC.


If you head out of the double doors in the lounge area, you will descend two steps into your lovely private garden space. There, you will find a patio with wooden garden furniture to relax on and a BBQ to work some culinary magic in the fine country air. The lawn is large enough for picnics and, if necessary, the children to play on, all enclosed by waist-high shrubs and flower beds. This allows a view of the grounds, with the green spaces, trees and pleasant buildings conjuring a truly serene atmosphere. Take a walk around to the front of the cottage, and you will find the off-road parking space that is your personal driveway. And if you venture further out into the grounds, you will find the other cottages and, of course, the marvellous Ellingham Hall. And let's not forget the amazing Treehouse play area that the kids will go wild over!

We spent a lovely week in Cloister Cottage. Well appointed and in a great location for visiting Northumberland. We enjoyed the quiet location but also felt part of a little community with the other cottages being close by. Lived up to the description online and we felt the directions were very accurate.

Sadly the weather was bad, however the location is very convenient for visiting the area and the local pub served great food. Only problem is that the village has no shop, so planning and morning papers becomes a challenge.

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.
