This stunning cottage has a garden room with seating and cover from the elements so guests can enjoy the coastal views in comfort, regardless of the weather or time of year.

The traditional, quiet seaside village of Cresswell, at the south of Druridge Bay has one of the most impressive stretches of beach on the heritage coastline, with a 7 mile long stretch of golden sands. Druridge Bay is a paradise for watersports enthusiasts and a haven for birdwatchers with hides built especially for observing wildfowl in the Wildlife Trust Reserve, dotted along the coastline. History of the area is brought back to life at the nearby Woodhorn Museum and Country Park. Bird watching, fishing, watersports, cycling, golf, walking and sailing are all available locally, and trips to Alnwick, Morpeth, Newcastle and Edinburgh are all within easy reach.

This is one of the best-equipped kitchens we have come across, such a great selection of cutlery/pans/plates/cooking dishes - rarely found in holiday properties! Loved eating/drinking/sitting in the sun room at dusk, watching the sea as the sun went down.

Mrs S A,

We had a fantastic time at this cottage and would recommend it to anyone for whom it would be suitable

Mr Martin P,

Loved Northumbria lots to do and plenty of places to eat out that were dog friendly.

Mrs A C,

We took the train from Morpeth to Edinburgh for a look around the Christmas markets. Morpeth is a lovely town to have a stroll through. Beamish was great day out, we went on a Sunday when everything was open and had lovely day. It was so nice to come ‘home’ every night to this beautiful house. I will not forget sitting in bed every morning looking at the beautiful view from the bedroom window. Priceless!
