Holiday Cottages In Northumberland To Rent

Holiday Cottages in Northumberland

Almost knocking on the door of Scotland, Northumberland is England’s northernmost county and is firmly establishing itself as something of a holiday hotspot. Book one of our Northumberland Cottages and you’ll find yourself in a region where the countryside is wild and rugged and the coastline is studded with beautiful, sandy beaches. An historic county, Northumberland is littered with remnants of its impressive past, such as the imposing fortresses at Bamburgh, Walton on Tweed and Alnwick, and the world-famous Lindisfarne Monastery, which you’ll find on the aptly-named Holy Island.

However, there’s much more to Northumberland than history. Wildlife buffs who use one of our Northumberland Cottages as a holiday HQ will find they have good access to the Farne Islands, which is teeming with puffins. There are also some good beaches there, so if all that twitching leaves you drained, you can relax by the sea.

Is Northumberland best for Families or Couples

When it comes to romantic breaks, Northumberland has a gigantic ace up its sleeve - the lack of light pollution gives an unparalleled view of the stars on clear nights, and parts of the county are designated as ‘Dark Sky Reserves’. Sitting outside one of our holiday cottages in Northumberland, with a cheeky glass of your favourite tipple and staring at the stars ticks all the right boxes. However, for couples who like to get out and about, there are some stunning little villages to visit, such as Alnmouth, Beadnell and Low-Newton-By-the-Sea. There’s also Hadrian’s Wall which, while it might not offer Disney-style hearts and flowers, is pretty impressive, and a memorable place for a proposal!

Families who’ve booked one of our holiday cottages in Northumberland will find they’ve got easy access to loads of local attractions. Warkworth Castle, Dunstanburgh Castle and Banna are ruined and crumbly enough to inspire little minds and get a bit of education in under the radar. If your kids need to burn off a bit of excess energy, there are some good, modern things to see and do, such as paying a visit to the Go Ape Centre in Matfen or a cycle along some of the many cycle paths. Alternatively, a visit to The Deep, a world-famous aquarium, makes for an easy way to spend a day out.

Christopher - verified booking

"Stayed at the cottage for 4 days early April.The cottage itself is at the end of a long rough track in the middle of farmland; Google Maps frequently said no route found, but just follow the small Tows Bank signs downhill and persevere with it. Street view helped, then add a flag and save the location yourself.Once at the cottage, the location and view is breathtaking; the cottage is perched 3/4 of the way up a deep valley side, with complete views across the valley to the other side, an open vista that goes on for miles and miles.The cottage is actually part of a complex of farm buildings and is sited in the middle of a small holding for sheep & chickens, run by a really friendly farmer, with the freshest possible eggs for £2.50 for a dozen. They are obviously free range, as the chickens roam around the parking area and the yard directly in front of the cottage, and often we had to get the children to herd them out of the way of the cars when we were setting off and returning. Being April, there was an abundance of very small lambs running around in the close by fields, visible through the windows.The driveway at the side of the cottage is narrow, but it was long enough to get two large family estates onto it. Getting out is tricky without beaching the car onto the mud slope, but with just a modicum of scrabbling and dash lights flashing, both cars managed fine.Once inside the cottage, all six of us were very impressed; it has a great cosy but nicely modernised feel to it, and we all relaxed with a coffee and biscuits straight away.Downstairs through the front door there is a porch area for removing boots and coats, hanging up dog leads, drying umbrellas etc.This leads into a hallway which connects the lounge, shower room and kitchen.The lounge is very spacious with comfy seating for seven, a TV, DVD, WiFi box and a solid fuel stove. Feels freshly renovated; still fluff coming out of new carpet. The chimney may need looking at; even with the damper open, a lot of wood and coal smoke kept coming back into the room.The kitchen is easily big enough for the six of us, but if your group is the full seven, there is no seat at the table. The kitchen kit and cupboards has a new feel to it, helped by a modern electric cooker and electric hob plus microwave and fridge freezer. The freezer is only small though. There is also a solid fuel stove, but we didn't use it. Couple of things to note are the extractor fan does not extract outside, so only has a limited effect to remove steam from pans, and there are no cupboards available to put food but plenty of room in the fridge and on the window sills.The shower room downstairs feels brand new; lovely fitted shower cubicle with lashings of hot water, new white ware, heated towel rail. Well finished off too.Upstairs, the layout for sleeping worked fine for us, two adults in a large main double room, two adults in a smaller double room and two children in a room that has bunk beds and a single bed. The children ran some sort of rotation system for who was in top bunk or the single bed.Most rooms are beautifully decorated; only pointer about the bedrooms is that the smaller double is looking a bit tired and could do with redecorating, although from the look of the other bedrooms, this room is the last on the list.There was also a bathroom upstairs, with a shower off the bath taps that clips in higher up the wall. The children were banished from this one, as there is no screen for the shower.Overall, we decided the cottage was 8 out of 10; very cosy, well heated with central heating, spacious enough for two children plus they played in the yard with wellies on quite a bit once the rain had stopped. There is ample stuff to do around and about; as ever, TripAdvisor, Google, whatever your choice will provide things to see and do and places to go.Only a handful of things stop it being a 10; no back garden for the little ones was our main issue; a group of all adults would be fine. The second double bedroom is not up to muster and the chimney/ stove in the front room needs a good coat of looking at. Also, the kitchen was constantly steamy, as the extractor fan doesn't extract steam."

"The cottage is dated, damp, worn and lacking in homely touches and modern facilities. Both the bathrooms had peeling wallpaper and mouldy grouting/silicone with locks that didn't locate; the living room furniture all showed signs of staining with worn arms (hidden by arm-covers); the plumbing made a horrific noise with a dangerously high hot water temperature, the taps over the sink in the bathroom were amusing - only 'just' managing to fill the sink as opposed to flooding the surround as they were too small for the sink; the kitchen window had a broken latch and often blew open; whilst seemingly well-appointed many of the items in the cupboards would not be used during a short self-catering break - eg gravy boat and cake tins whereas baking trays for pizzas would have been very useful! Having stayed at a bright modern apartment (in a Victorian house) in York on our way up to Seahouses arriving at Farne Haven was in stark comparison; simple things like shelves for toiletries in the bathroom and towel rails/hanging - especially bearing in mind the swimming pool and extra soggy towels this produced; the fold-out rail provided looked like it was 25yrs old - wonky with cracked and peeling plastic which would be so simple to rectify. The pool was very nice and thoroughly enjoyed by the kids, but again let down by broken showers perhaps brought to prominence by overbearing warning signs (if so dangerous why not just cap off?)The complex is in a great location with superb views and deserves to be brought up to a modern standard. I'm assuming the large 'For Sale' signs on the side of the building show the level of interest and investment that the owners are willing to give the property."

"Lovely clean and comfortable cottage. We stayed here with my parents, husband, 6yr old 4yr old and 11 month old. We had a few meals in The Anglers Arms pub which served delicious food and had great service. The house itself was lovely and the toy selection for the children was the best I’ve ever seen in a rental before. My 4yr old son was in heaven and went to bed every night with the oversized Chase pup. The only downsides for me personally were there was no mattress for the travel cot provided only the slightly padded base that was quite hard that came with the cot. This is the first time I’ve stayed in a rental before that didn’t have an additional mattress for the travel cot so this resulted in a few sleepless nights with my baby who usually sleeps through as she was so uncomfortable. Also there wasn’t a towel provided for her and the rest of us just had one large towel each. Thankfully I had brought one of my own for her so we were ok but everywhere else I have stayed they have provided a large and a small towel per person (including babies.) Also there was a lack of coat hangers and I had to take some from the kids bedroom but these are only very minor things and I am only mentioning them incase the owner wanted to improve on anything. A washing machine would also have been handy but it wasn’t the end of the world not to have one and I believe you could have used the one in the pub but we never did. Northumberland is a lovely place to holiday and we had some great days out. If you are travelling with young children a trip to The Whitehouse Farm Centre and The Alnwick Gardens and Castle is a must."

"The house was beautifully furnished to a very high standard. Very clean when we arrived and a bottle of wine from the owner was a welcome touch. As it was our first time in Northumberland we did a lot of sightseeing and it was so nice to return to such a lovely house after a fair bit of driving. It’s location of being a 100 metres or so from the promenade was lovely and we walked there at some point every day. You also have a view of the sea from the lounge albeit between the detached houses opposite. The owners were very helpful and were keen to ensure we were satisfied with the property.Whilst Newbiggin itself leaves a little to be desired we found it to be a nice base from which to operate to see Northumberland although being in the very south it does mean a bit of driving to explore many parts. This in no way detracted from the place as the coastal routes north from there are a pleasure to drive. Whilst we did not try too many eateries in Newbiggin we would recommend the Italian restaurant “Due Fretalli” in Newbiggin as very good and excellent value and we ate there twice.We visited Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Roman Vindolanda and the Roman army museum at Hadrian’s Wall, Lindisfarne and Banburgh Castle and Kielder Water and Forest amongst other places and really enjoyed them all. Whilst we had some rain overall the weather was kind which allowed us to appreciate the beauty of Northumberland.There are so many places to visit and we will undoubtedly return and would love to stay at this lovely house again."

"The cottage was lovely, but I had to go in and Hoover and polish, empty the fire and rinse the bath out! (The bath water was a very yellow colour) their was long dark hair in the master bedroom, none of my family are dark, so wasn't from us! I dont except to pay hundreds for a holiday to then go in and have to clean up on the first day! The bed in the master bedroom was very unfomy! The slats are not attach underneath so fall through constantly, i tryed to put them back on but cut my finger in the process. Their was a broken table in the living room, which was just balancing with a broken leg, lucky my husband noticed as it was sharp, the blankets in the living room absoulty stunk of dogs, I had to wash them all befor my children touched them. The blind that I assume was ment to be up in the kitchen was just rolled up and balancing over the top of the fire place in the kitchen leaving the cord just hanging down, the other blinds just had their cords hanging down aswell (very dangerous when you have children!) Theirs very little cupboard space and the kitchen table was very wobblerly (my husband had to tighten it all up) the track leading down to the cottage is very uneven and bumpy, please go very slowly or you may damage your car. On a plus side the views are beautiful and the farmer and the chickens are very friendly. Lots of nice walks near by."
