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: Chathill is a rural hamlet comprised of a farm and a few houses. It is situated 3 miles from Beadnell, which lies on one of the most beautiful stretches of Northumberland's magnificent Heritage Coast. Once a smugglers' haven, Beadnell is now a fishing village, popular with holidaymakers who come to enjoy its pretty harbour. Within easy driving distance of the nearby sandy beaches between Seahouses (where boat rides can be booked for the spectacular Farne Islands) and Bamburgh Castle, Alnwick, Holy Island and the Scottish Borders, there is plenty to see and do.

The owners were very welcoming, friendly and approachable.Kitchen well kitted out with utensils etc.
It was kind of 'home from home'. Good to have a supply of leaflets about the area as it was totally new to us. Especially helpful was the information sheet listing the various churches with contact numbers so we could contact someone to find out if it was the kind of Church we would enjoy.(and we succeeded!)
It was a quiet place in the country so there weren't any local amenities but it was just right for us. Lots of castles to visit and the boat trip to the Farne Islands was brilliant.
Only one negative - the wireless reception was very weak except in the entrance hall but this was adequate for our 19 yr old son's usage.
Though Remote, you wish to return to !
Hoping to book again next year

Warm, comfortable and friendly

Very quirky but cosy cottage. Plentiful supply of books, videos games etc for rainy day. The owners were very friendly.
Only one small complaint (as a non-pet owner) was the smell of animals inside the property. If pets are allowed in the cottage then perhaps a little more thorough cleaning is required.
Last minute success

I was looking for a last minute break to somewhere near alnwick and found this.
Although the owners were away, their arrangements with the neighbours for welcoming and looking after us worked great.
The house is very comfortable and warm, good amenities and a great location for getting out and about in Northumberland.
For our toddler, the mainline railway 50 yards from the house was a highlight - he loved watching the trains. If you aren't used to the noise of trains going past, you might not enjoy it. The beach at Beadnell is only 3 miles away. Buckets and spades were provided!
You need a car to make the most of this location - quite remote.
Overall, this was a great place for a break.
