A Gorgeous Cottage in a Central Location

New to collection, Watermill Cottage is a period stone-built conversion from beautiful old farm buildings and an old water mill and is located in an ideal central location - perfect for exploring Northumberland in all directions, coast and country.

More photographs will be available in early January, however we can advise that it is beautifully furnished with great attention to detail and an incredibly cosy and comfortable cottage for exploring Northumberland from.

Close to the Northumbrian Heritage Coast with easy access to the A1 and magnificent coastline. Only 6 miles to the lovely sandy beach at Newton by the Sea and only 7 miles from the historic town of Alnwick, Northumberland’s Ducal town, where you'll find quaint cobbled streets, interesting shops, cafes and restaurants and the famous 'Barter Books'.

Iconic Bamburgh is just 10 miles from Watermill Cottage, with its magnificent castle on the beach. Trips to the beautiful Farne Islands can be taken from nearby Seahouses, where whole colonies of seals, puffins and other seabirds can be seen up close. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

This lovely cottage is available to book from Monday 30th December 2013. Photographs of the interior will not be available until January, however we can assure you that this gorgeous cottage is furnished and equipped to a luxury 5 Star VisitEngland standard.
