We have a collection of exceptional, luxury holiday cottages, all privately-owned and in the most enviable coast and countryside locations of beautiful Northumberland. Some are situated in the heart of medieval villages and towns like Warkworth and Alnwick – others are located in equally beautiful coastal and countryside locations including Rothbury, Bamburgh, Alnmouth, Lesbury, Amble, Beadnell, Seahouses and in the heart of the Northumberland National Park.
Northumberland is officially third in the ranking of England’s most loved holiday destinations, but we think if more people discovered the beauty and warmth of welcome here in Northumberland, it would doubtless become the first!
All of our cottages are hand-picked for their ideal locations, making any one of them the perfect base for discovering the beaches, islands, castles, historic houses, gardens and pretty villages of beautiful Northumberland. Whether you’re looking for a luxury base for a walking holiday, or you want to be within walking distance of a great pub, restaurant or fabulous beach, or you just want to get away from it all in a secluded luxury bolt-hole – ‘cosy’ or ‘contemporary’, ‘bijou’ or ‘grand’ – we have the perfect cottage for you!
Rarely will you find luxury holiday cottages presented to the incredibly high standards we have set ourselves and which others try to emulate. More luxury, more style, more comfort, more facilities, more for you and more for the kids. How about a wldlife safari? Horse riding on the beach? A spa pamper day? Or just a great walk on a fabulous beach and come back to relax in a gorgeous cottage with books, large flat screen TV’s, PlayStations and free Wi-Fi broadband internet access.
Unusually for luxury cottages, we’re also very happy for you to bring your dog to most of of them. Some even accept 2 or 3. We appreciate you won’t want to leave them behind – after all, why shouldn’t they have a great holiday and a taste of luxury too? We even provide little welcome packs for them too!
We do however, have a selection of ‘pet-free’ cottages too, so if you have an allergy to pets you can book one of these cottages with confidence as they have never allowed dogs to stay there.
If you have stayed with us before, you are automatically enrolled in our Loyalty Scheme which offers a 10% discount on all further holidays booked with us.
Once you have completed your first holiday with us, you will receive a loyalty discount code, which you can use when booking your next holiday online and offers a discount of 10% off the rental cost of your holiday. We cannot combine discounts however, so if you see a cottage with a ‘special offer’ discounted price, then we are only able to offer the highest of the discounts, not combine them both. If you cannot remember your discount code, just remind us when booking of when you last stayed with us and will match you existing booking to your new one to validate your discount.
