Northumberland

From the sweeping coastline to the ancient forests, Northumberland’s stark landscape tells the story of its history. Along the border with Scotland, a series of walls and old forts are a reminder of the cross-country battles which took place hundreds of years ago; while the outposts and beacons along the coast are left over from Viking invasions.

Northumberland is famous for its abundance of castles from various points in history, and cottages with pools are never too far away from one of these iconic sites. The most popular of all is Alnwick Castle near Alnmouth , which is most famous for its starring role as Hogwarts in the first two Harry Potter films. Bamburgh and Warkworth Castles are also worth a visit, and Newcastle-upon-Tyne has a 2000-year old (haunted) castle in the centre of the city.

If you are staying at a cottage with a swimming pool near the coast, you will have access to some of the most beautiful walks in the country. The Northumberland Coastal Path runs from Berwick-upon-Tweed all the way to Cresswell in the south, passing through pretty villages such as Seahouses, Beadnell and Craster along the way.

Cottages with private pools are particularly popular with hikers who come to Northumberland to explore the Kielder Forest Park, and the North Pennines AONB. From Bellingham and Hexham there are some amazing countryside treks which will really show off the county in all its natural beauty.

But if you want to get to the heart of modern Northumberland, find a holiday cottage with a pool near one of the many rural villages. Most of the communities around East Woodburn , Rothbury and Otterburn are still dedicated to farming, and if you hang around the local pubs for long enough you will hear some fascinating stories about local history.

Whether you are staying at a beach-front cottage by the coast, or in traditional market town such as Morpeth , it won’t take long before you are under the spell of this unique part of England.

    "A gracious manor and cottages of mellow stone . . . between history-steeped hills and a coast of golden sands . . ."

    Standing proudly at the foot of the Cheviot Hills, on the edge of the glorious Northumberland National Park and only 15 miles from the alternating sands and rocks of the coastline, Akeld Manor cottages offer the perfect setting for a holiday in England’s fascinating and beautiful Border country. The gracious Manor House and its cluster of cottages and mellow stone buildings have been sensitively renovated and converted to create an outstanding collection of holiday properties – all with shared use of a superb choice of facilities. A leisure building houses a wide range of amenities (available daily, all the year round) which include an indoor heated swimming pool with changing and shower facilities, a Jacuzzi and sauna. There is a well-equipped multi-gym, too, and the first floor of the building features a large games room (with pool table, table tennis and football game) and a separate snooker room with full-size antique table. The cottages are set in acres of shared grounds, which offer space for relaxing and for children to play, and they lie within 2 miles of the shops and inns at Wooler.
    The Northumberland National Park stretches south through Kielder and Wark Forests as far as Hadrian’s Wall, and north to the Scottish border. Long stretches of sand can be found lining the coast south of Berwick-upon-Tweed (16 miles). At Beal (13 miles), the road to Holy Island runs gently down to the shore, where it becomes a causeway covered and impassable at high tide.
    These quaint cottages, some of which have originally been cartsheds and byres are charmingly set in small groups within the spacious and colourful grounds. The large Manor House (which provides accommodation for parties of 15), also has a splendid large walled garden allowing total privacy. The setting of these cosy cottages is intriguing, many with small courtyards and gardens, a truly interesting and imaginative conversion full of detail and character – the individual and tasteful interiors are delightful.

    "Views towards Bamburgh Castle over harbour and sea – within two miles of Beadnell’s sweeping sands . . ."

    With fine views across the little harbour and its working quayside (not Gull’s Crest or Crag End), Farne House Holiday Homes are within a few hundred yards of the shops, restaurants, inns and other amenities of the fishing village and colourful seaside resort of Seahouses. Converted and refurbished to extremely high standards throughout, the properties here are grouped around a central courtyard only yards away from a fine indoor heated swimming pool and sauna. Available all the year round, the pool has a constant depth of 4ft 6in and features a south-facing glass sun living room to one side.
    Within easy walking distance, the bustling harbour boasts a fleet of brightly painted fishing cobbles and a few larger boats, and the town itself provides a good range of facilities, including golf, sailing and horse riding. There are calm weather boat trips to the offshore Farne Islands, a wildlife sanctuary for puffins, oyster-catchers, kittywakes, guillemots and grey seals. The 28 islands form a nature reserve owned by the National Trust and, though half of them are submerged at high tide, landing is allowed daily in summer on the largest, Farne Island – where there is a nature trail, lighthouse and 14th-century chapel.
    At Beadnell, 2 miles to the south, the dune-backed sands of Beadnell Bay provide ideal conditions for water sports. Formerly an important fishing village and smugglers’ haunt, Beadnell now enjoys a reputation as a centre for sailing and has the unique distinction of being the only East Coast port with a west-facing harbour. The sandy beach running the length of the bay is safe for swimming and is overlooked by 18th-century lime kilns. In the village stands a three-storey, 16th-century peel tower, which now forms part of an inn. Five minutes’ drive to the north of Farne House Holiday Homes stands the mighty fortress of Bamburgh Castle, easily visible across the wide stretch of sand from Seahouses.
    Just a few miles further on is yet more historical, natural and scenic interest at Holy Island. Here, the fairytale Lindisfarne Castle was first a 16th-century fort, then a ruin which was redesigned by Edwin Lutyens in 1902 and is now owned by the National Trust.
    Inland is a country of massive hills and moors, fast rivers and great forests. Between the Cheviots and the sea, there is easy touring through fields of corn and pastures dotted with solid stone hamlets and lined by dry-stone walls which patchwork the countryside. Shops 500 yards.

    Entrance hall. Ground floor: Double bedroom. Twin bedroom. First floor: Sitting room with dining area. Modern kitchen. Modern bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. No sea view.

    The seven cottages at Farne House enjoy the use of a superb indoor heated swimming-pool provided for the exclusive use of only these cottages. Available throughout the year, and open daily for guests’ use from 8am-8pm, the pool has a constant depth of 1.2m (4ft 6in) and has been designed to the highest specification. It is heated and benefits from the latest purification and de-humidification system. With its sunny, south-facing glassed conservatory lounge to one side, this all-weather facility makes Farne House a fine choice for a Northumberland coastal holiday, whatever the season.

    "A gracious manor and cottages of mellow stone . . . between history-steeped hills and a coast of golden sands . . ."

    Standing proudly at the foot of the Cheviot Hills, on the edge of the glorious Northumberland National Park and only 15 miles from the alternating sands and rocks of the coastline, Akeld Manor cottages offer the perfect setting for a holiday in England’s fascinating and beautiful Border country. The gracious Manor House and its cluster of cottages and mellow stone buildings have been sensitively renovated and converted to create an outstanding collection of holiday properties – all with shared use of a superb choice of facilities. A leisure building houses a wide range of amenities (available daily, all the year round) which include an indoor heated swimming pool with changing and shower facilities, a Jacuzzi and sauna. There is a well-equipped multi-gym, too, and the first floor of the building features a large games room (with pool table, table tennis and football game) and a separate snooker room with full-size antique table. The cottages are set in acres of shared grounds, which offer space for relaxing and for children to play, and they lie within 2 miles of the shops and inns at Wooler.
    The Northumberland National Park stretches south through Kielder and Wark Forests as far as Hadrian’s Wall, and north to the Scottish border. Long stretches of sand can be found lining the coast south of Berwick-upon-Tweed (16 miles). At Beal (13 miles), the road to Holy Island runs gently down to the shore, where it becomes a causeway covered and impassable at high tide.
    These quaint cottages, some of which have originally been cartsheds and byres are charmingly set in small groups within the spacious and colourful grounds. The large Manor House (which provides accommodation for parties of 15), also has a splendid large walled garden allowing total privacy. The setting of these cosy cottages is intriguing, many with small courtyards and gardens, a truly interesting and imaginative conversion full of detail and character – the individual and tasteful interiors are delightful.

    "A gracious manor and cottages of mellow stone . . . between history-steeped hills and a coast of golden sands . . ."

    Standing proudly at the foot of the Cheviot Hills, on the edge of the glorious Northumberland National Park and only 15 miles from the alternating sands and rocks of the coastline, Akeld Manor cottages offer the perfect setting for a holiday in England’s fascinating and beautiful Border country. The gracious Manor House and its cluster of cottages and mellow stone buildings have been sensitively renovated and converted to create an outstanding collection of holiday properties – all with shared use of a superb choice of facilities. A leisure building houses a wide range of amenities (available daily, all the year round) which include an indoor heated swimming pool with changing and shower facilities, a Jacuzzi and sauna. There is a well-equipped multi-gym, too, and the first floor of the building features a large games room (with pool table, table tennis and football game) and a separate snooker room with full-size antique table. The cottages are set in acres of shared grounds, which offer space for relaxing and for children to play, and they lie within 2 miles of the shops and inns at Wooler.
    The Northumberland National Park stretches south through Kielder and Wark Forests as far as Hadrian’s Wall, and north to the Scottish border. Long stretches of sand can be found lining the coast south of Berwick-upon-Tweed (16 miles). At Beal (13 miles), the road to Holy Island runs gently down to the shore, where it becomes a causeway covered and impassable at high tide.
    These quaint cottages, some of which have originally been cartsheds and byres are charmingly set in small groups within the spacious and colourful grounds. The large Manor House (which provides accommodation for parties of 15), also has a splendid large walled garden allowing total privacy. The setting of these cosy cottages is intriguing, many with small courtyards and gardens, a truly interesting and imaginative conversion full of detail and character – the individual and tasteful interiors are delightful. Shops 2 miles.

    This property has been tastefully converted from a former stable block. Open-plan living/dining room with modern fitted kitchen area. Shower room with toilet. First floor: Double bedroom with en-suite shower room. Twin bedroom.

    "Ideal base for a family holiday...set between the Cheviots and the sea"

    Tucked away in a peaceful and secluded village setting, these five comfortably furnished holiday cottages are set in an idyllic location, only 5 miles from the spectacular Bamburgh Castle and one of the longest sandy beaches in England, and within a few minutes’ drive of Seahouses, where regular boat trips depart for the Farne Islands. Between the Cheviots and the sea, there is easy touring through the beautiful countryside with its numerous castles, stately homes and NT properties. Furnished to a high standard, and close to the owners’ home, Fordson offers single-storey accommodation and Ferguson is a detached two-storey cottage. The Mill House stands as a detached converted barn, with Waren View and The Granary Cottage forming an adjoining pair. This is an ideal choice for family holidays, with use of a very pleasant lawned area by a stream where visitors can enjoy barbecues. There is also shared use of the owners’ hard tennis court nearby.
    Warenford Village serves as an excellent base from which to discover Northumberland and the Scottish border country. Just 4 miles distant lies Budle Bay, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as an SSSI, with the ancient walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed (15 miles) and the Duchess of Northumberland’s ornamental gardens a short drive away. Created to rival the best in Europe, the gardens are contemporary in design and include waterfalls and cascading plumes set within landscaped grounds with themed planted areas. Also sure to delight both young and old alike is a visit to neighbouring Alnwick Castle, which served as the location for the Harry Potter films. Home of the Percy family, it stands as the second largest inhabited castle in England after Windsor Castle, with some of its rooms open to the public and displaying a wealth of decorative and fine art.
    Within easy reach, too, is Holy Island – renowned for its medieval religious heritage, priory and picturesque castle – and also known by its Anglo-Saxon name of Lindisfarne. Accessed by a paved causeway at low tide, the island is popular with bird-watchers and nature lovers, with the north-western portion of the island being maintained as a nature reserve, where terns, plovers and seals can be observed. Whilst on the island, a trip to The Museum of Island Life will reveal former living and working conditions there, and St Aidan’s Winery tempts visitors with its sweet concoction of local Lindisfarne Mead.
    There are quiet country lanes for cycling and several excellent golf courses nearby, as well as a selection of shops in Belford (3 miles) and good inns and restaurants in which to enjoy a family meal locally – the nearest pub with restaurant being just 30 yards.
    Guests may relax in our recently developed indoor swimming pool and sauna or work out in the gym, built close to the cottages. Shop/24-hr garage 1 mile.

    Spacious open-plan living/dining room with French doors to patio, wall-mounted remote-controlled electric fire and kitchen area.

    "Views towards Bamburgh Castle over harbour and sea – within two miles of Beadnell’s sweeping sands . . ."

    With fine views across the little harbour and its working quayside (not Gull’s Crest or Crag End), Farne House Holiday Homes are within a few hundred yards of the shops, restaurants, inns and other amenities of the fishing village and colourful seaside resort of Seahouses. Converted and refurbished to extremely high standards throughout, the properties here are grouped around a central courtyard only yards away from a fine indoor heated swimming pool and sauna. Available all the year round, the pool has a constant depth of 4ft 6in and features a south-facing glass sun living room to one side.
    Within easy walking distance, the bustling harbour boasts a fleet of brightly painted fishing cobbles and a few larger boats, and the town itself provides a good range of facilities, including golf, sailing and horse riding. There are calm weather boat trips to the offshore Farne Islands, a wildlife sanctuary for puffins, oyster-catchers, kittywakes, guillemots and grey seals. The 28 islands form a nature reserve owned by the National Trust and, though half of them are submerged at high tide, landing is allowed daily in summer on the largest, Farne Island – where there is a nature trail, lighthouse and 14th-century chapel.
    At Beadnell, 2 miles to the south, the dune-backed sands of Beadnell Bay provide ideal conditions for water sports. Formerly an important fishing village and smugglers’ haunt, Beadnell now enjoys a reputation as a centre for sailing and has the unique distinction of being the only East Coast port with a west-facing harbour. The sandy beach running the length of the bay is safe for swimming and is overlooked by 18th-century lime kilns. In the village stands a three-storey, 16th-century peel tower, which now forms part of an inn. Five minutes’ drive to the north of Farne House Holiday Homes stands the mighty fortress of Bamburgh Castle, easily visible across the wide stretch of sand from Seahouses.
    Just a few miles further on is yet more historical, natural and scenic interest at Holy Island. Here, the fairytale Lindisfarne Castle was first a 16th-century fort, then a ruin which was redesigned by Edwin Lutyens in 1902 and is now owned by the National Trust.
    Inland is a country of massive hills and moors, fast rivers and great forests. Between the Cheviots and the sea, there is easy touring through fields of corn and pastures dotted with solid stone hamlets and lined by dry-stone walls which patchwork the countryside. Shops 500 yards.

    Entrance from communal main hall. Ground floor: Double bedroom with sea views and en-suite shower room with toilet. Impressive wrought-iron spiral staircase to first floor: Sitting room with dining area and magnificent sea views from full-length picture windows. Small galley-style kitchen. Twin bedroom. Single bedroom. Bathroom with toilet.

    SUPERB INDOOR HEATED SWIMMING POOL AND SAUNA:

    The seven cottages at Farne House enjoy the use of a superb indoor heated swimming-pool provided for the exclusive use of only these cottages. Available throughout the year, and open daily for guests’ use from 8am-8pm, the pool has a constant depth of 1.2m (4ft 6in) and has been designed to the highest specification. It is heated and benefits from the latest purification and de-humidification system. With its sunny, south-facing glassed conservatory lounge to one side, this all-weather facility makes Farne House a fine choice for a Northumberland coastal holiday, whatever the season.
