Region: Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.
Town: Acklington is a village located just a few miles from the coast and its near neighbour Warkworth. The River Coquet meanders past the village, with a view from Guyzance Bridge. There is a limited bus and train service to Alnwick, Newcastle and Alnmouth, and the whole of the coast is within easy driving distance. Warkworth, 4 miles away, is a pretty village, dominated by the dramatic ruins of its 12th Century castle. The main street is lined with Georgian and early Victorian houses and there is an exceptional range of galleries and antique shops, a village shop-cum-post office, pubs, restaurants and gift shops to suit all tastes. Warkworth has its own stretch of sandy beach and a 9-hole 'pay and play' golf course. Also within easy touring distance are Hadrian's Wall, Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island, the Farne Islands, several wonderful beaches and Alnwick Garden with its remarkable water cascade.

Would recommend this cottage to everyone. They welcomed my dog and was also allowed in the pub. Food in the pub was excellent, we did not have to go anywhere else. Only downside 4 miles from beech. Although the beeches in area are really great. We were made very welcome and would go back again. John Mabbott

Good place to stay

Good place to stay, cottage well appointed and set up, lovely four poster bed, quiet area even tho the pub is only yards away. Good food in the pub. Downside - not much of a view from any of the windows, the bedroom window overlooks the pub's utilities area and from a personal point of view I'd've preferred a more remote setting away from the pub.
Very comfortable accommodation

the service was good and the home was ideal for us because we brought our dog and it was easily kept clean. the location and amenities were also good because they were nearby and the best thing was that they made our dog feel welcome not every place does that.

Very welcoming proprietors . Cottage was very comfortable and the pub next door was excellent for entertainment and choice of food. Surrounding area is wonderful , long sandy beaches and lovely little towns to wander around and historical sites to explore. Highly recommend this cottage for an unforgetable holiday.
