Vicarage Cottage might be tucked away on a quiet lane, but it is not far from the coast or the countryside that forms part of the Northumberland National Park. Better still, a gastro pub that is family and pet-friendly is only a two-minute stroll. If your mission is to stay put and really relax and rewind then this well-presented cottage is where you can do it in style. The outdoor area that catches the sun most of the day is ideal for alfresco dining and there is even a covered bench at the end of the garden if the rain sets in.
Once you’ve re-energised the area surrounding the cottage is your oyster. Short car trips will find you at award-winning beaches, ancient castles, and harbours where boats leave for the world-famous Farne Islands. Holy Island is under half an hour’s drive away and if you haven’t been before it is a trip that really should be on your to-do list. Just be warned that once the tide comes in it flood the causeway leading to the island and you won’t be able to make your return journey until the next day.
This is a charming Northumberland village with surroundings that are full of surprises from a Dark Sky Park to halcyon days on golden beaches that play host to stretches of pristine shorelines.
