Holiday Cottages Northumberland
The Coast

Northumberland's long coast is a marvel. A true paradise for holiday makers. Endless sweeps of sandy beaches - usually fairly empty - are punctuated by mighty castles and romantic ruins. And the light is beyond spectacular.

And there's so much to do! Explore Berwick-upon-Tweed, Alnwick, Bamburgh, or the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Photograph the castle ruins at Dunstanburgh or Warkworth. Try Lindisfarne Mead, fresh oysters or Craster kippers. Take a boat from Seahouses out to the Farne Islands. Fish, sail, paddle, walk the beach, fly a kite or go kite surfing.

But most of all... relax!

Below is a small selection of holiday cottages Northumberland has to offer along this marvel of a long coastline.

They range from cosy hideaways for two, to lovingly equipped family-sized properties, to the grand and magnificent Middleton Hall with ten bedrooms and space to host twenty-four! 

Northumberland holiday cottages have it all: great views, great walks, beaches and harbours, secluded villages, tiny towns full of quirky shops... and oodles of lovely food and wonderful history. You all already know that I love Northumberland... so I won't even try to apologise for blowing its trumpet.

Did I managed to find one or two fabulous holiday cottages that want to make you go on holiday? I hope I have, because just looking through the catalogues made me want to pack my bag and head north. 

I remember a morning on the beach in Alnmouth, where a thick sheet of fog hung two feet off the ground as if someone had forgotten to roll it up the night before. I remember walking around Warkworth's great keep and exploring the tiny church that had seen a massacre. I love the second-hand bookshops in Alnwick, and eating fish & chips sitting on the sea wall at Seahouses. I recall walking up to Dunstanburgh Castle on the most perfect day of deep blue skies and bright sunshine, with the sea stretching out like a velvet blanket. Or almost getting stuck on Holy Island...

For us, Northumberland has too many wonderful memories to count. I hope you get the chance to make your own.
