This amazing holiday cottage has almost too many things going for it to list, but let’s try. It’s an original terrace building, made of stone, and right in the middle of a bustling village.
Also, that village is part of some of the most stunning coastline scenery in the UK. For dog owners, there is probably nowhere else better to take a holiday with your four legged friend.
The Northumberland Heritage Coast is right here, stretching 40 miles from Berwick to Amble. There are countless opportunities to take your dog or dogs for a walk, from the Blue Flag winning beaches to the signposted country trails.
A mile away is Dunstanburgh Castle. This sits overlooking the North Sea, as it has done since the 14th Century. Before that, the site was home to an Iron Age fort. The walk from Dunstanburgh to Craster, down the coast slightly to the south, has been voted one of the top 10 walks in the country. Try it with your furry friend, and reward yourselves with a visit to Craster village. This is home to the Craster Kipper, as well as a picture perfect harbour. Further north is Seahouses, which has dog friendly boat rides to the Farne Islands. It also has some of the best fish and chips you will ever taste.
The Farne Islands are run by the National Trust, and are a sanctuary for seals and seabirds, puffins being the most famous. The biggest of the Islands is Lindisfarne, also called Holy Island. This can only be accessed by a causeway, so check the tides if you’re going. Away from the coast slightly, Alnwick is a busy county town just 8 miles inland. This is home to hundreds of shops, as well as pubs and eateries to die for. It is also home to Alnwick Castle, aka Hogwarts. The town itself and Castle visitor attractions have plenty of chances to entertain yourself and your canine companion.
