Superbly located on the dramatic Northumberland coast, this converted farm cottage offers comfortable beach-side accommodation, a sense of tranquillity and a wealth of outdoor activities.

This holiday cottage sleeping up to eight people forms part of a farm conversion in the charming hamlet of Low Newton. Stroll a few paces from the property, through some dunes, and you arrive at a stunning stretch of silver sand. Much of the area is owned by the National Trust, including the scenic coastal trail south to Cranston via Dunstanburgh Castle, which can be walked in around two hours. Low Newton itself features whitewashed old fisherman’s cottages and the famous Ship Inn, which features its own micro-brewery and serves delicious fare including fresh lobster from Newton Bay. Windsurf from the beach, play golf at a local course or drive to Alnwick to marvel at its ‘Harry Potter’ castle.

Accommodation in the three-bedroom cottage is all on one level and is accessed via the back door, which leads into a large kitchen with everything you need for your break, including a dining table seating up to six, microwave and dishwasher. A washing machine and tumble dryer can be found in the cupboard in the hallway. Both the lounge and dining area look out on to the picturesque dunes; the former features two comfortable sofas, TV and a selection of games, while the latter provides a quieter space in which to unwind at a table that seats up to eight. A door from the dining room leads to a large porch at the front of the cottage, perfect for drying rain-soaked clothes (this is Northumberland, so it’s likely!) and wetsuits. You will love the beach vistas from the two tastefully decorated double bedrooms, while the third compact bedroom incorporates two sets of standard-size bunk beds. A bathroom with bath and WC is complemented by a separate shower room with WC.

Outside, There is a grassy area to the front of the cottage which is part of the National Trust.

The cottage was very well equipped.The location by the sea was superb - it meant that we could access the beach whenever we wanted to. The heating was adequate once we had been provided with additional heaters. Because there were only two of us the price did seem rather high. Overall we had a lovely holiday.

Lovely, well equipped cottage in beautiful location. Our two boys loved being so close to the beach and spending their time hunting for treasure in the rock pools. A memorable holiday and we hope to come back.

The location of the cottage is amazing - so close to what is a wonderful beach with views of Dunstanborough Castle. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped - the Wifi and Smart TV worked very well. This was out third visit and we will probably return again. ps The booking/office staff were really helpful and friendly .

A very clean and comfortable cottage with an unbeatable location - we had a great week.

Reviewed by Catherine 8th June 2019

A fabulous location, and a lovely homely place to stay. I experienced every kind of weather during my holiday and the cottage hit the spot every time - for lazing late in bed and enjoying the stormy views from the cosy lounge on the rainy days, or for getting straight down to the beach or enjoying an evening drink in the garden when the sun came ouRead moret.
