Lovely warm and cosy cottage, great location

Reviewed by Linda 8th November 2019

I would thoroughly recommend Poppy Cottage for a relaxing stay on the Northumberland coast. It lived up to my expectations. Its a lovely stone cottage, situated on the coast road, in a quiet location, overlooking a field with cows grazing, beyond which are the dunes and the beach. The sea was audible at the front, as were the Brent geese at the reaRead morer of the cottage. Its furnished in a modern, comfy style and the kitchen is well equipped (good sized fridge & freezer a bonus). Do hope to return. Hide

We had a lovely holiday in this warm and comfy cottage. It was marvellous to be so near the glorious beach, and the alpacas were a delight.

Poppy cottage was warm and spacious and well equipped. The beach is just across a field from the cottage. We enjoyed lovely long walks with our dog. We were visiting family who live locally so spent most of the time meeting up with family either in the cottage or their homes.

Poppy Cottage is very clean and welcoming. This is our 25th year visiting Northumberland and again despite the weather had a great time. Visited Cragside, Belsay and Wallington. Impressed with the improvement in Amble. It is a welcoming port. Overall loads of places to visit not long enough to do everything.

A beautiful cottage well equipped and clean in a great location. The beach is quiet and clean, great and safe for young kids. Attractions like Alnwick garden and the creepy Chillingham castle all within easy reach. Lovely seaside towns like Warkworth and Amble also close.

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.
