Annie Oswald’s Cottage is one of the Bamburgh First collection of 17 different dog friendly houses and cottages under the same ownership with a consistent quality of interior design and attention to detail throughout. The interiors are professionally designed to suit each individual dwelling and the owner has tried to think of everything that will enhance the stay of every guest.

This former two story farm building provides fantastic accommodation over two floors. Downstairs is a large open plan living and dining area, and the two bedrooms are upstairs. It is one of six properties in Adderstone close to the pretty village of Lucker, which are part of the Bamburgh First Collection. These properties really are beautiful inside with wallpaper by the award winning Timorous Beasties, travertine bathrooms fully equipped kitchens with marble worktops and sitting rooms with cosy log burners with easy lighting logs. There is a patio outside with a Weber barbecue.

Inside the cottage guests will find some nice personal touches which include a tin of goodies, a bottle of wine, a voucher for a pound of the famous Bamburgh Bangers, a box of games including Scrabble, Monopoly and Cluedo, and the owner’s personal guide to the 21 best things to do whilst in the area. Netflix is also included as is a portable Bose Bluetooth speaker.
