Surrounded by fresh-water streams and pretty woodland, the rural village of Eglingham is full of the picture-postcard-charm that all holiday-villages should have. This lovely stone cottage with views of the open countryside is located on the edge of Eglingham. Renovated to a remarkably high standard, the décor of the house skilfully combines old-world charm with modern practicality and can be enjoyed throughout the year. Whether you fancy a summer break by the sea, or a Christmas Eve snuggled up by the pillar box-red AGA this lovely house can accommodate. The spacious living room offers an open fire, and for days when the weather isn't... at its best, there's a colour TV with video and DVD player. With a lovely, well-maintained garden, perfect for picnics beneath the apple trees, this cottage is a great place to bring the family.
Amenities: LPG central heating fired by AGA in the kitchen with open fire in sitting room. Electric hob, AGA, microwave, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, TV, video, DVD, radio/CD/iPod dock. Fuel, power & starter pack for open fire inc. in rent. Bed linen & towels inc. in rent. Highchair available. Private garden to rear with furniture & BBQ, mature terraced garden to front with views over village & countryside. Village tennis court close to cottage (free, no need to book). Off road parking for two cars. Sorry, no pets & no smoking. Shop 4 miles, pub 2 mins walk. Note: Mobile reception in the village is poor with the exception of O2.
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: Comprised of neat stone houses with well-kept gardens, a Victorian church, large pub and traditional restaurant, the village is a wonderful setting to try living life at a more leisurely pace. For those wanting to escape the hustle-and-bustle of the city, the surrounding hills and valleys offer fascinating walks through this vibrant countryside. Birdwatchers will enjoy trips to the Farne Islands which are rich with wildlife, though you don't have to go far to spot some interesting birds as closer to home, herons have been sighted in the Eglingham burn. For those who like history, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne is very close by, as are the castles of Warkworth, Chillingham, Alnwick and Dunstanburgh.
Additional amenities include: high chair, tennis court, cooker.Read more

This delightful cottage, (it was an old cottage not a modern building calling itself a cottage), was certainly a revelation. If all the properties we have stayed in were like this I would be overjoyed! Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated this well equiped cottage has everything, even nice big fluffy towels! My husband and I will do all we can to stay here again.

We enjoyed the views from this cottage, and use of the tennis court/playing field. It made a good base for exploring the area around alnwick and the beautiful beaches.
Happy and relaxed holiday

I thought the cottage was lovely, it instantly felt warm and welcoming. We travelled with a child and grandparent and everyone enjoyed the area and returning each evening to such a great cottage. The aga was fun to use, walks right from the door and an excellent inn almost opposite.
The cottage was clean and had lots of entertainment in it, cd's books, games and dvd's. A lovely introduction to the North of England

Sunflower cottage is a true home from home. Comfortable, spacious and (once we'd worked out the Raeburn) cosy. Eglingham is wonderful and a great base from which to explore all Northumberland has to offer. Although only there for a week, the cottage really made an impression. The first thing we did on getting home was book another week in the Summer!

The cottage was up to our expectations in all but one item. The toilets took too long to flush after use, even though there were two. Both took up to 1/4 hour to be ready for the next person.
We were warned that the Aga cooker was slow, so it was no suprise that our meals tended to be after their alotted time.
