Located next to the church in a pretty Northumberland village, this snug, warm, traditional and romantic cottage for two retains all its old-world charm and is ideal for enjoying this stunning area.

From the picturesque village of Eglingham, a 15 minute drive will take you to the bustling market town of Alnwick, home of the historic Alnwick Castle and the world famous horticultural treat that is the Alnwick Garden. Alnwick also offers a wide range of pubs, restaurants and independent shops, including the largest second-hand bookshop in England. Nearby is the charming village of Wooler, which affords access to the foothills of the Cheviot Hills. Less than half an hour from the cottage is the glorious Northumberland coastline, with highlights including Bamburgh Castle, the RNLI Grace Darling Museum, Beadnell Bay, the harbour at Seahouses, charming villages including Craster and Low Newton, and boat trips to the Farne Islands and Lindisfarne.

On entering this delightful and cosy cottage, built for the Archdeacon of Lindisfarne in 1706 and retaining several original features, you will find yourself in the pretty and welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Tastefully furnished, with plenty of comfy seating, TV, DVD and a traditional wood burner, the light and airy lounge is an ideal space to relax in after a fantastic day exploring this beautiful area. You will also find a charming dining area, and the stylishly designed kitchen is fully equipped with an electric hob and 2 small ovens, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, slim-line dishwasher and a washing machine. The narrow stairway leads directly into the beautiful and spacious master bedroom, with a king size luxury bed, seating, and plenty of storage space. There’s also a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC.

Stepping outside, you will find the garden is deceptively large and has lots of interesting areas and places to stroll around, with lovely, mature shrubs, fruit trees and roses, including the beautifully romantic, deep cupped, pink 'Alnwick Rose'. There are two separate areas to sit outside and relax: the patio, which is immediately accessible from the kitchen and furnished with a table and chairs and also the sheltered, side courtyard area with park bench style seating. Parking is available in the lane directly outside the cottage.

Lovely bolt hole to come back to after exploring beautiful Northumberland. Cottage has all you need, lovely garden to relax in and the church clock isn't a problem, you soon settle into not hearing it. No local shop in village but main supermarkets amenities short drive away in Alnwick to stock up. Local pub does excellent food, very (dog) friendlyRead more and welcoming. Hide

A charming property with an enviable garden, perfect as a quiet base from which to explore the region. The old building is beautifully restored and offers a high level of comfort. Its worth noting that you need to be able to negotiate a steep stairway to the bedroom and bathroom. We had a wonderful holiday and our dog loved it too.

Beautiful cottage, full of history, set in a private lane by the gorgeous church. The pretty, well kept garden is fully enclosed, perfect for sitting out in with a glass of wine and perfect for the dog! There is a secure back gate with gravelled area for washing down the dog after walks up Tarry Lane - very close to the cottage - about a mile each Read moreway. For walkers this goes well beyond to open moorland with views of the Cheviots. The Tankerville Arms is a must, 200 yards away with great food. Hide

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.
