    “The cottage was lovely - spacious , well-equipped, spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated etc.”

    One small thing for reference: One of the kitchen cupboard handles came off when I opened it (the one nearest the sink I think)?

The property

Nestled in the popular coastal town of Spittal in Northumberland, is this delightful ground-floor apartment, The Lazy Seal. Enjoying a central location with easy access to amenities, as well as the glorious sands of Spittal Beach, The Lazy Seal makes for a fabulous coastal retreat for a family of six and their canine companion. Be welcomed into the spacious sitting room, where you can sink back into the teal velvet sofas with a glass of wine and relax in front of your favourite film on the TV, as the woodburning stove crackles nearby. Whip up lovingly homemade meals in the fully-functioning kitchen, with a handy washing machine, perfect for popping sandy clothes on a spin after a day at the beach! Settle down around the dining table to tuck-in to the fruits of your labour, as you discuss plans for the adventures that lie ahead. Soothe tired muscles with a blissful soak in the bath, paired with your favourite book, before popping on fresh pyjamas and rustling up a mug of hot chocolate. As your eyes grow heavy, indulge in a refreshing night's embrace in one of three beautifully-presented bedrooms, two king-size and a bunk. Awake from a leisurely slumber, before packing up your swimming trunks, buckets and spades and heading straight for the beach, where you can enjoy a spot of fishing, a leisurely walk along the shores with your pooch or simply sitting back and taking in the stunning sea views. Wander over to Berwick-upon-Tweed, just a short drive or 1.6 mile walk, where you can visit the historical Main Guard Museum, hop aboard a boat and join a trip to spot the local wildlife of dolphins and seals or visit the traditional candy-striped style Berwick Lighthouse which proudly looks out to sea. Take your pick of welcoming pubs where you can treat your loved ones to a tasty pub lunch, allowing yourself a night away from the kitchen. Learn more about the local area at the Berwick Museum and Art Gallery or immerse yourself in history at the 18th-century Town Hall. Why not finish your day exploring the coast and immerse yourself in the spectacular sight of Bamburgh Castle looming grandly over the North Sea? This ancient village also has lovely shops, enticing tea rooms and easy access to beautiful unspoilt countryside. Lindesfarne also known as Holy Island is not far away, and is a must for any history enthusiasts, including any fans of the Vikings! Be sure to set time aside to visit Alnwick, home to the impressive Alnwick Castle which featured in the first two films of the popular Harry Potter series. Nearby, are the lush Alnwick Gardens where you will find a cascading fountain and a treehouse restaurant, as well as the poison gardens, home to the deadly nightshade. For a memorable evening, take the family to the Alnwick Playhouse to enjoy a live theatre performance in an elegant setting. For a home that will leave you wanting to return as soon as you have left, choose The Lazy Seal.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
