    “Lovely location although constant traffic and walkers along the lane means that as there’s no blind or window covering on lounge there’s very little privacy when sitting and relaxing.”

    Minor issue is that the Sofas in the lounge are a little well worn. Cinty has ensured that the facilities in the cottage especially in the kitchen are excellent. There’s nothing you could wish for that isn’t available. It was a nice touch on arrival to find a cheese board, coffee for the cafetière and fresh eggs from her own hens. The cottage is situated in an excellent area for exploring Northumberland and we even went up to the Scottish Borders. All told we had a lovely week.

The property

This delightful, semi-detached cottage sits in a splendid location overlooking Low Hauxley beach, 1.5 miles south of the busy fishing port of Amble. Set just yards from the beach, with wonderful views across the sea from the first floor, this is the ideal setting for couples and families seeking a relaxing seaside getaway. On the ground floor of this wonderful cottage is a well-equipped kitchen and a spacious sitting room with a dining area, exposed stone walls and a cosy woodburning stove for those chillier evenings by the sea. Make your way upstairs and you will find two welcoming bedrooms, along with a bathroom where you can enjoy a relaxing soak at the end of a long day touring the vast, beautiful county of Northumberland. The cottage is situated on the National Coast and Castles cycle route, so why not spend a day touring the superb castles of this historic area? On sunnier days, simply open the door and within a minute you will be on a beautiful Northumberland beach, so take the windbreak, dogs, children and a picnic and your day is sorted! To the north, the busy fishing village of Amble is easily accessible, with an array of pubs, restaurants and takeaways all serving good food and beverages. This beachside cottage is perfectly positioned for anyone wishing to visit the Heritage Coast and the surrounding area. Visit historic Warkworth Castle, just two miles away, take a leisurely drive to the coastal villages of Craster and Alnmouth, or explore popular Alnwick with its imposing castle. An excellent cottage for a seaside break.
