The Northumberland Regional Specialist - Fantastic properties in the most favourable locations. No one knows Northumberland better!


With beautiful views over Collywell Bay, this property is perfect for couples and families looking for coastal walks and fun days out.

This spacious property is set in a small row of Victorian cottages overlooking Collywell Bay, just a few hundred yards from a choice of lovely pubs. Sit back, relax and enjoy lovely sea views from the lawned garden or the decked terrace on the first floor. This beautiful, contemporary holiday home really is ideal for friends, couples and families. Seaton Sluice is a hidden gem with a historic harbour, nature reserve and unspoilt beaches. You can enjoy walks along the coastline straight from your doorstep to St Mary’s Lighthouse and all the way to Whitley Bay and Cullercoats, with its lovely cafés. The vibrant seaside village of Tynemouth is only a few miles away with an abundance of wine bars, eateries and bespoke shops.
Head to Longsands beach, a nationally recognised water sports hub where surfers enjoy the spectacular waves. Nearby you’ll find the Blue Reef Aquarium and Tynemouth Park with its dinosaur themed mini golf, pirates maze and pedalo hire, which make for fantastic family days out.
Collywell Bay Cottage is ideally located for exploring the whole of Northumberland, Tyneside and Durham, with easy access to roads leading to the top tourist spots in the county.
There is easy access to the main roads that take you further north up the beautiful heritage coast where a visit to Lindisfarne or Alnwick Castle and Garden 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, featured in Robin Hood. Visit the vibrant city of Newcastle (easily accessible from the Metro station in Whitley Bay), where you can admire grand historic architecture, or wander along the Quayside or visit the Baltic Centre for some wonderful views. To the south, a visit to Beamish Museum or historic Durham are also within easy reach. Fishing is also available nearby. Beach 400 yards. Shops 500 yards, pubs and restaurants 200 yards.

    We had a fantastic time staying here over Christmas with the extended family. Sue had decorated the cottage and provided a Christmas tree which we were delighted with. The cottage is lovely and clean and felt like home as soon as we walked through the door. The views of the sunrise and sunset are incredible and the local walks from the cottage door are exceptional. The local pub - Kings Arms is a lovely traditional pub and very friendly. We hope to stay here again soon. 5 stars, 10 out of 10!

    Response on behalf of the owner; I'm really delighted to hear you enjoyed your Christmas stay at the cottage and look forward to welcoming you again on your next visit.

    Fantastic week in Colywell Bay Cottage. Property is beautiful, spacious and well equiped with everything you need. Dolphin watching from the balcony was a bonus! Great location with sandy beach, pebbly beach, pub and top notch fish and chips on the doorstep.

    Collywell Bay Cottage could not be in a better location. Our party of 7 comprised ages 18 to 84 and everyone was well catered for. The cottage has been wonderfully modernised and at night you can hear the sea from your bedroom. There are two living rooms so plenty of room for everyone. We were lucky to have a really sunny week and so made full use of all the patio furniture. The cottage was really well stocked with everything we needed. We had a wonderful holiday and would not hesitate to recommend.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Very glad you all enjoyed your time at our cottage. Thank you for a lovely review.

    Excellent. The house is absolutely beautiful. The owner has thought about everything. I could have quite happily stayed for longer. Good location. Places to walk from the door step. Amazing fish and chip shop close by as well as a good pub on the doorstep. Would definitely return.
