Discover the best of both worlds, when you stay at Brier Dene End Cottage, with distant views over to St Mary’s Lighthouse and the sea, yet perfectly located in pretty countryside. Set on a quiet arable farm with a resident herd of Welsh mountain ponies, this charming, semi-detached holiday home offers a mix of old and new with local pieces of furniture and artefacts which reflects the owner’s high regard for the local area. Set only a few minutes’ walk from a very dog friendly pub, the cottage is ideal to return to and relax around the charming multi-fuel burner.
Perfectly located for exploring the whole of Northumberland, Tyneside and Durham with easy access to many of the roads leading to the top tourist spots in the county, this property is the perfect base for outdoor enthusiasts. Local beaches are within a couple of miles, with Seaton Sluice being only 2 miles away, with miles of golden sands and some fabulous eateries offering local produce. A beautiful walk from the door takes you to St Mary’s Lighthouse and the helpful owner has left plenty of information on local walks and cycle routes, with the Waggonways Cycle Path right on the doorstep.
Cullercoats and Tynemouth are nearby, where Tynemouth Priory, bespoke shops, fine collection of pubs and a great Sunday indoor market await. The pretty little cafés at Cullercoats are great to sit outside on a sunny day. Tynemouth’s award-winning beach is famous for surfers and holidaymakers who love to spend time here on a sunny afternoon out. The property is within easy access to the main roads, meaning you can head further up north to the beautiful Heritage Coast, where a visit to Alnwick with the famous castle and cobbled streets should not be missed.
Travel west to Hadrian’s Wall, where you can stop at a Roman fort or look at the famous tree in ’Sycamore Gap’ which was featured in ‘Robin Hood’. The vibrant city of Newcastle is easily accessible where you can admire the grand historic architecture or wander along the quayside, or perhaps pop into the Baltic for the wonderful views. After a day exploring this fantastic, friendly county you will be pleased to come back and relax in this welcoming and cosy cottage with lovely views and pleasant sitting-out areas. Beach 2 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

lovely little cottage in a quiet spot. Beach, shops etc are all a short drive - or a longish walk away. if you want peace and quiet this is for you - if you want night life then its not! Beehive gastropub down the road is well worth a visit but you need to book.
