Welcome to Northumberland, the land where history, nature and charm collide to offer a holiday of your dreams. You can escape to one of our fabulous properties, ready to dive headfirst into a treasure trove of ancient marvels and unspoiled beauty. Trust us, Northumberland is not your average destination, it is a blockbuster adventure waiting to happen!

First up, the crown jewel of the north, Hadrian's Wall. This UNESCO World Heritage Site stretches across the county like a colossal history lesson. You can take a stroll along the wall, enjoy breathtaking views that will stay with you forever and explore forts such as Housesteads Roman Fort and Vindolanda.

The magical Alnwick Castle, aka the "Windsor of the North", is a cultural extravaganza where you will marvel at the architecture. Alnwick Garden is a world of wonder where you can get lost in beautifully landscaped grounds and pretend you are royalty for a day.

Nature lovers, rejoice! Northumberland National Park is your playground full of rolling hills, expansive moorlands and skies so dark they are a canvas for stargazing. You can hike scenic trails or become a birdwatching pro in the tranquil Cheviot Hills, the possibilities are as vast as the park itself. You will also enjoy a dose of coastal coolness on pristine beaches and dramatic cliffs. The wonderful Bamburgh Castle is perched on a rocky throne. You can take a boat tour to the Farne Islands and make friends with seabirds and seals.

Northumberland boasts a long list of charming market towns and picturesque villages. Hexham enjoys an ancient market square and the stunning Hexham Abbey. Its cobbled streets ooze nostalgia, with a blend of gorgeous Georgian and Victorian architecture. Corbridge, the quaint village along the River Tyne, is a haven for antique enthusiasts. It enjoys independent shops, galleries and quaint tea rooms where you can sip tea like it's the 1800s. Warkworth, with its medieval castle overseeing the River Coquet, is all about timeless charm. It is perfect for leisurely strolls along scenic riverbanks.

Northumberland doesn't just stay in its lane. It shares borders with vibrant cities and towns, like Newcastle upon Tyne. This dynamic metropolis, known for its cultural scene, shopping districts and the iconic Tyne Bridge, is just a stone's throw away.

Reviews

  • Comfortable. Everything up to a high standard.

    on 27/09/2023

    This was my first break away since the loss of my beloved husband, Ray. We have revisited places which held special memories, which has been wonderful. More importantly, we have had an opportunity to create more special memories in this beautiful house. My 5 daughters and I have explored the beautiful area, played games and laughed so much during these past few days, which has been such a tonic for us all. The house is like home from home! So comfortable and everything to such a high standard. You have put so much love and thought into everything. Tank you so so much.

  • Wonderful

    on 22/08/2023

    Wonderful house! Very well thought out and cosy. Immediately felt at home here. Great place to explore from and the best beds. Thank you for the experience. We will be back again.

  • Perfect base to explore the aerea

    on 19/06/2023

    Thank you for a lovely week in this wonderful part of the world. We had a lovely time in Seaside Cottage and the house is a perfect base to explore the area. Great BBQ weather

  • Wonderful stay

    on 04/06/2023

    We all had a lovely holiday here, including the dogs. The seaside was beautiful, specially at sunset. We went to Holy Island and saw seals and puffins. It was awesome! I also recommend booking at The Jolly Fisherman. Thank the owner for a wonderful stay at their beautiful house.

  • Wonderful weekend

    on 25/05/2023

    Beautiful and welcoming holiday home. We arrived to mil in the fridge and a wonderfully clean house - it did not stay that way! We had a lovely weekend with lovely weather. Did the boat trip from sea houses, saw lots of puffins and the seals were fascinating. Recommend taking a jumper though. Thank you for a wonderful weekend with lots of special memories.

  • Fantastic house

    on 28/04/2023

    Wow, what a place to stay. Great location, family friendly and a fantastic house to stay in. So many thoughtful and helpful additions with lots of good books. Definitely somewhere to come back to again.

  • A superb stay

    on 06/04/2023

    The house is just beautiful, so comfortable with a real home from home feel. Love the location and easy access to many places to visit. Just love all the extra touches in the house, so thoughtful, and the goody bag was a lovely surprise. The beds were so comfy so we've had a relaxing, fun and thoroughly enjoyable stay - we will definitely return.

  • Beautiful home

    on 08/11/2022

    Thank you for providing a beautiful home for a wonderful long weekend. The Jolly Fisherman was so good, we had to go twice! The Potted Lobster was great for a long Saturday lunch. A weekend full of walking, talking, eating and drinking. Great family time and we hope to be back.

  • The best holiday home in Northumbria!

    on 24/04/2022

    This was our 4th Northumbrian holiday and Seaside Cottage is by far the best holiday home we have stayed in. Warm, cosy, and well appointed.

  • Perfect

    on 27/02/2022

    8 of us stayed here for a delayed Christmas getaway. The house was perfect and lovely and cosy, despite two storms going on outside. Love the nice touches like the coasters and the basket of goodies. The house is on a quiet street and was plenty big enough for us all. The house has everything you would need and it was nice to have better than bog standard towels, crockery, wine glasses etc, and plenty of them too. Location is great for coastal walks, beaches, castles, food and the parking for two cars to get in and out easily.

  • Lovely house

    on 29/07/2021

    We had a wonderful stay at Seaside Cottage. Lovely house, 2 minutes from the ancient cliffs of Craster and Dunstanburgh. Love this area of Northumberland, stunning beaches, pretty villages, great pubs and ancient castles! Finally home after months of lockdown and Seaside Cottage could not of been better! Brand new, well decorated, comfortable and great facilities. We would love to stay again. The pub in the village, The Jolly Fisherman serves wonderful food and the fish and chip pop up is a great addition.

  • This is such a great holiday house

    on 29/06/2021

    Location could not get any better. There is a 2 minute walk to all local amenities and in particular the Jolly Fisherman, it's a must for food.

    The walks along the coast are amazing. On our walk to Dunstanburgh Castle we saw a pod of dolphins swimming off the coast.

    The house is exactly what we expected and more. The garden to the back is a great sun trap and the bi fold doors that open up onto it make it a perfect extension to the house.

    The living room is very cosy for a perfect relaxed evening after long walks if the Jolly Fisherman doesn't take your fancy for drinks.

    All in all it's the perfect base in a perfect location.
