    “Lovely cottage very clean well maintained and decorated throughout.”

    Lovely surprise with a welcome gift. Kitchen well equipped Garden well kept and ample of space for parking. Only a couple of things front door was a bit hard to shut and lock couldnt open the patio doors although we had the keys. Didnt realise how much we would miss a walk in shower we already knew this before booking that there was no shower only a bath which was beautiful. Would have liked to have seen the owner. We did however enjoy our stay. Thank you

The property

Well-positioned on the outskirts of Shilbottle, a Northumberland village is Old Colliery Cottage, a stylish, single-storey abode. Within driving distance of the Northumberland Coast AONB and the Northumberland National Park, Old Colliery Cottage offers a wonderful base for exploring both the coast and country; three guests and a furry companion are invited. Benefit from ample off-road parking, where you can unload your belongings and head indoors to your new home-from-home. Be welcomed into the well-equipped, sleek kitchen, with all the necessities for a self-catered stay. Prepare delectable meals to be enjoyed around the dining table or throw open the French doors for an alfresco affair upon the patio, enjoying views over the spacious garden. Return indoors to cosy up for a film night, before catching some rest in one of two bedrooms, including a double and a single. Awaken to an indulgent soak in the roll-top bath, before heading into the village to stock up on the essentials, dine out and explore. Travel to the shoreline, taking in the golden beaches resting within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with Warkworth and Alnmouth both popular landscapes to relax upon. Nearby you'll also locate Alnwick Castle, enveloped by pretty, rose gardens and water features, recommended for touring, or head to the Bailiffgate Museum to brush up on your local knowledge. Northumberland Zoo, Druridge Pools, and the rural mansion of Cragside are all also within driving distance, recommended to add to your itinerary before returning home for sundowners. Experience all of this, and more, at Old Colliery Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
