Croft Cottage is one of two beautiful traditional stone cottages cleverly attached to each other when totally rebuilt and completed in 2013. Finished to a high specification and boasting uninterrupted views of open Northumbrian countryside, the single storey cottage is located in the tiny rural hamlet of Newstead, on one of the Duke of Northumberland's tenanted farms, yet only a ten minute drive from the Northumberland's Heritage Coast and the village of Bamburgh with its famous castle, sand dunes and miles of unspoilt beaches. Ideally located for exploring this exciting region including the castles of Dunstanburgh, Warkworth, and Lindisfarne and of course Alnwick, the location for many of the Harry Potter films. The cottage is centrally heated and double glazed.
Croft Cottage is surrounded by a network of country lanes and public bridleways, making it ideal for walks and cycle rides from the doorstep. Alternatively, if you prefer to relax in your holiday accommodation, there is ample opportunity for bird and nature watching from the comfort of the cottage.
The cottage has a mix of contemporary furnishings and traditional features and benefits from Karndean flooring throughout the living areas and fully fitted carpets in the bedrooms. The whole cottage is an epitome of style. For larger parties up to 10, this semi-detached cottage can be booked with Pasture View, its next-door neighbour, for a memorable family holiday.

Lovely clean, cosy and well equipped cottage. Friendly and helpful owner. Homemade cake on arrival was really excellent.
Everything was perfect from start to finish! Sparkling clean, stylish and a perfect home from home. Highly recommended! Julie's cake was a perfect welcome and Julie was a perfect host. Thank you so much! We enjoyed every second of our holiday.
We loved our stay at croft cottage. It was our second visit here and once again we felt very welcome and at home. Julie is a wonderful host and the house itself is sparkly clean, homely and close enough to some of the bigger towns. With it being on a farm our boys loved waking up and watching the cows and sheep and tractors go by. I cannot recommend this place enough!
