Find cottages in NorthumberlandVisit Northumberland

Northumberland's distinctive and magnificent landscape offers something for everyone. From the breathtaking views of the Cheviot Hills to the often deserted golden sandy coastline; you'll find the magic right on your doorstep.

Spanning 1,935 square miles, Northumberland is a land of big skies and even bigger scenery. A cottage holiday here offers the perfect opportunity to explore medieval abbeys and rolling countryside, Roman remains and fantastic beaches. There's so much to see and do in this inspiring area, and a cottage holiday is the best way to do it.

Northumberland's most well-known attraction, Hadrian's Wall is rich in history and steeped in Roman heritage. A feast for the eyes, marvel as the 80 miles of fortified stone and archaeological wonders which offer a great insight into how the Romans lived.

Explore the ancient castles that sit along the atmospheric coastline and delve into the past at one of the many museums in the region. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne has great nature reserves and you may even spot the resident grey seals on the neighbouring Farne Islands. Northumberland is one of England's unspoilt regions; you'll find rare wildlife, diverse habitats and bustling seabird colonies, all virtually untouched by human hands.

There's nothing like exploring the great outdoors, and you'll find lots of stunning Northumberland cottages dotted throughout friendly towns and villages, all perfectly located for walking, hiking and cycling. With cosy pubs and welcoming inns along the way, Northumberland's extensive foot and cycle paths criss-cross over green pastures and open countryside. Sailing enthusiasts can cast off from lively coastal towns and fishing villages to take in the spectacular surroundings of the area's unspoilt and wildlife-rich coast. And if you like your watersports wet and wild, you won't be disappointed with Northumberland. Kayaking, waterskiing, powerboating and windsurfing can all be found here.

There's also some great fishing in the area, with popular spots such as the rivers Tweed and Tyne, both claiming to be the best Atlantic salmon rivers in Britain. But if you'd prefer a more relaxing pace of life, Northumberland is home to a wide range of speciality shops, markets and galleries. And from fish and chips to a la carte cuisine, there's a plethora of cafes, pubs and restaurants all serving up delicious home cooked food with the local produce grown and caught in the area.

"Views towards Bamburgh Castle over harbour and sea – within two miles of Beadnell’s sweeping sands . . ."

With fine views across the little harbour and its working quayside (not Gull’s Crest or Crag End), Farne House Holiday Homes are within a few hundred yards of the shops, restaurants, inns and other amenities of the fishing village and colourful seaside resort of Seahouses. Converted and refurbished to extremely high standards throughout, the properties here are grouped around a central courtyard only yards away from a fine indoor heated swimming pool and sauna. Available all the year round, the pool has a constant depth of 4ft 6in and features a south-facing glass sun living room to one side.
Within easy walking distance, the bustling harbour boasts a fleet of brightly painted fishing cobbles and a few larger boats, and the town itself provides a good range of facilities, including golf, sailing and horse riding. There are calm weather boat trips to the offshore Farne Islands, a wildlife sanctuary for puffins, oyster-catchers, kittywakes, guillemots and grey seals. The 28 islands form a nature reserve owned by the National Trust and, though half of them are submerged at high tide, landing is allowed daily in summer on the largest, Farne Island – where there is a nature trail, lighthouse and 14th-century chapel.
At Beadnell, 2 miles to the south, the dune-backed sands of Beadnell Bay provide ideal conditions for water sports. Formerly an important fishing village and smugglers’ haunt, Beadnell now enjoys a reputation as a centre for sailing and has the unique distinction of being the only East Coast port with a west-facing harbour. The sandy beach running the length of the bay is safe for swimming and is overlooked by 18th-century lime kilns. In the village stands a three-storey, 16th-century peel tower, which now forms part of an inn. Five minutes’ drive to the north of Farne House Holiday Homes stands the mighty fortress of Bamburgh Castle, easily visible across the wide stretch of sand from Seahouses.
Just a few miles further on is yet more historical, natural and scenic interest at Holy Island. Here, the fairytale Lindisfarne Castle was first a 16th-century fort, then a ruin which was redesigned by Edwin Lutyens in 1902 and is now owned by the National Trust.
Inland is a country of massive hills and moors, fast rivers and great forests. Between the Cheviots and the sea, there is easy touring through fields of corn and pastures dotted with solid stone hamlets and lined by dry-stone walls which patchwork the countryside. Shops 500 yards.

Entrance hall. Ground floor: Double bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet. First floor: Sitting room and dining area. Modern kitchen. Twin bedroom. Modern bathroom with toilet. No sea view.

  • Shared facility charge £27 (July – September), £38 (October – June) per week; pro rata per short break

  • Bed linen included (personal and swimming towels and baby cot linen not provided)
  • Cots and high chairs on request
  • TV (Freeview)/DVD/video
  • Microwave
  • Washing machine
  • Parking
  • Indoor heated swimming pool and sauna (open 8am-8pm daily, all year round)

SUPERB INDOOR HEATED SWIMMING POOL AND SAUNA:
The seven cottages at Farne House enjoy the use of a superb indoor heated swimming-pool provided for the exclusive use of only these cottages. Available throughout the year, and open daily for guests’ use from 8am-8pm, the pool has a constant depth of 1.2m (4ft 6in) and has been designed to the highest specification. It is heated and benefits from the latest purification and de-humidification system. With its sunny, south-facing glassed conservatory lounge to one side, this all-weather facility makes Farne House a fine choice for a Northumberland coastal holiday, whatever the season.
