Property Description

"...a fine, rural location where wildlife and natural woodland are waiting to be discovered"

These eleven charming holiday cottages (MQP, MQQ, MQR, MQS, MQT, MRJ, MRK, MTA, MVK, MVL and MVM) are set in a beautiful small development of traditional farmhouse and barn conversions close to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near the Northumbrian Heritage Coastline. Set in some 10 acres of peaceful and tranquil surroundings, the grounds are a mix of natural woodland with wildlife in abundance, courtyards, lawns and a traditional theme of Northumbrian Heritage throughout.
Guyzance dates back to 1242 and is a small hamlet located south east of Alnwick on the River Coquet amidst picturesque open countryside, yet close to all the main visitor attractions in the county. Warkworth is only 3 miles away with its hillside castle, charming small shops, pubs and river walks, while Amble, 5 miles, is a very friendly fishing port with a bustling working harbour and a new marina. Boat trips can be taken to the nearby RSPB reserve at Coquet Island. Alnwick with its mighty medieval fortress of Alnwick Castle - one of the finest in Europe and stage set for Harry Potter and Braveheart - is set in stunning landscape.
The cottages offer fittings of a very good standard and the décor is tasteful throughout each one. Each cottage is different yet each has its own sitting-out area with a barbecue to relax in after a day exploring the beautiful unspoilt coastline and areas surrounding this skilfully designed and tasteful setting. Newcastle city centre with its fine galleries, Centre of Life, Sage Centre, theatres and regenerated quayside area is only 30 miles away. The Metro Centre is only 30 miles distant. Shops and pubs 3 miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Lovely clean cottage with good facilities. Quiet location 10 minutes from A1. Bring eye covers as the main bedroom has a skylight with no blind!! Fantastic heating system... you will never be cold. Sept 2012.
  2. We stayed at Primrose cottage for a week in April and really enjoyed it. We were a family group of myself and my husband our 21 year old daughter and her partner and their English Bull Terrier Einstein. The cottage was lovely just like home. It was just what we were expecting, in a lovely countryside position, but not far from all attractions. We were very lucky with the weather cold but lots of sunshine. Einstein enjoyed the woods around the area and we all enjoyed the fabulous beaches and castles. We will certainly be returning. April 2012.
