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.

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.

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!
