Description

This carefully modernised single storey cottage, frequently used by the owners, is a cosy retreat in a rural setting, yet only a short drive from the coast at Bamburgh with its magnificent castle and beach, or the historic Holy Island, just a few miles north.

Situated on the edge of a working farm just outside the old coaching village of Belford, Burn Bank Cottage is well placed for enjoying the delights of the local wildlife - around the farm deer and fox are often to be seen and from the cottage you can sometimes even spot red squirrels. The tranquil area is also a joy for bird-watchers with curlews, amongst others, frequently to be seen. From the doorstep there are lovely walks to be enjoyed, perhaps with your dog, along the open lanes or the footpath beside the stream up onto the moor behind. Back at the cottage the spectacular conservatory affords extensive countryside views behind the cottage, or cosy up to the traditional wood-burner in the sitting room.

Belford, less than two miles away, has a choice of pubs, hotel, newsagent, mini supermarket and craft shop with small gallery. Only a ten minute drive away is the small village of Chatton with an art gallery, post office/shop and a local pub, the Percy Arms. Why not call in on the way home from a day trip seeing Chillingham Castle, the Cup and Ring Marked Stones on Chatton Park Hill and the Wild Chillingham Cattle - all of which are only a short drive away from Burn Bank Cottage.

Reviews

Once again we are back at Burn Bank. It's just as cosy and comfortable as ever. Walks around the cottage brilliant just the place to chill out

Past Customer,

Excellent cottage lovely location. Well laid out , the conservatory on the has a lovely view. And the multi fuel stove keeps you lovely and warm.

Past Customer,

As Burn Bank Cottage is on a working farm it was perfect for us. The cottage itself was very well equipped it had everything we needed, it was very comfortable and having the conservatory was a definite bonus, we spent many hours sitting on the very comfortable chairs watching the wildlife. If you want to get away from it all this is the place for you, but you are only a short drive away from many of the attractions Northumberland has to offer.

Past Customer,

Our second visit to Burn Bank cottage; the first five years ago. A really beautiful and peaceful location amongst stunning countryside with lovely views, wildlife, some inquisitive cattle in the field next to the back garden and during sunny weather, amazing skies and sun sets. Very comfortable and well equipped inside and the large conservatory is perfect to sit and eat and relax whilst taking in the wonderful scenery. Walks on the doorstep to keep a happy holiday dog even happier. Also a perfect base for visiting many nearby beaches and inumerable local sights.l

Past Customer,

This was a return visit to Burn Bank. Cottage was comfortable cosy and warm especial when the stove as on.. Lovely walks and close to the coast.

Past Customer,

This was our first visit to Burn Bank Cottage. It's a lovely, spacious and well equipped cottage. If you like walking then you'll like this place as there is a lot of open countryside to explore straight from the front door (i.e. without having to get in the car). This is also a very dog friendly/safe cottage with a small and secure fenced-in garden. Clearly, the cottage is located on a working farm so there are the occasional farm vehicles passing by but this didn't cause any problems. In fact, because the cottage is well away from the road, up a track, it's actually very peaceful in deed. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to others and are looking to return, perhaps, at a different time of year.

Past Customer,
