Overview

A charming, stylishly refurbished stone cottage that’s a short stroll from one of the North’s finest beaches, Cheswick Sands.

Stylish interiors, a rural setting and sea views – Farm Cottage ticks all the boxes.

Farm Cottage’s name goes a long way to painting a picture of it: one of a clutch of traditional Northumberland stone cottages set amidst rural land outside the village of Cheswick, it’s every inch a welcoming refuge from the rugged landscape that envelops it.

A wood-burner warms the cosy open-plan sitting and dining room, the original fireplace topped by a section of an ancient pew salvaged from nearby Scremerston Church, while the lush front and rear gardens offer uninterrupted views of the surrounding fields.

Footpaths criss-cross the fields, encouraging walkers to set off directly from the cottage, which also sits a few paces off the Coast & Castles Cycle route, inviting cyclists to tackle all, or just sections of, the scenic 192-mile stretch between Newcastle and Edinburgh. Golfers will meanwhile discover Goswick Golf Club a mere five minutes’ drive away. 

However, Farm Cottage’s greatest draw is arguably the fact that it’s located less than ten minutes’ walk from one of the finest beaches in northern England, Cheswick Sands. This acclaimed beach, a seemingly endless expanse of white sand dotted with black basalt rock-pools and backed by dunes, offers hard-to-beat panoramic views and serves as a playground for families, dog walkers, kite-surfers and sand-yachters. Take a stroll along the sands on a clear day and you’ll be able to look north, past the spires and lighthouse of Berwick-upon-Tweed, all the way to the Border before turning to glimpse the Holy Island of Lindisfarne to the south.

Best of all, you don’t even have to amble down to the beach from Farm Cottage to soak up the views: you can gaze upon the ocean as you sip sundowners on the terrace and contemplate the Holy Island over breakfast in bed in the master bedroom.

Farm Cottage’s owners have styled the cottage immaculately, achieving contemporary yet welcoming interiors that echo (rather than shout) its seaside setting with timber panelled bathrooms, framed seascapes in the bedrooms and local scenes by landscape artist Scott Robertson in the sitting room.

More extensive amenities can be found in the Elizabethan walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed (7 miles) which has a mix of high street and independent shopping, as well as two large supermarkets, a Marks & Spencers food outlet and a good selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants, including The Maltings, a vibrant theatre and arts venue for an evening of entertainment.

Head a little further down coast to the very picturesque village of Bamburgh where you can enjoy fantastic seafood at The Potted Lobster for a superior eating experience; or the Victoria Hotel if you like great pub food and a cosy chat next to the fire.

The town of Berwick-upon-Tweed is also served by the main East Coast rail line with regular services to Edinburgh and Newcastle for a city day out.

Activities

Cheswick beach (0.6 miles) is a wonderful spot for families, walkers and water sports enthusiasts with some amazing conditions for kite surfing and sand yachting when the wind starts to blow. This includes miles upon miles of vast golden sands which leads north to Cocklawburn, and south to Goswick and Holy Island.

Walking and cycling in this area is a delight with an abundance of trails and waymarked routes suitable for all ages and abilities from family routes, leisure routes, and mountain biking trails with everything from easy coastal stretches to high energy treks along the course of the Sandstone Way which sits right on the doorstep.

Sitting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within the Lindisfarne Nature Reserve, nature lovers, birdwatchers and photographers will also be captivated by the vast variety of wildlife and birdlife right on the doorstep.

Nearby Holy Island is a hot spot for vast numbers of migrant bird species, including the chance to see the odd grey seal bobbing inquisitively in the sea or basking on the sand flats, while sightings of minke whales and white-beaked dolphins can also be spotted here in calm sea conditions.

The whole area is bursting with things to do, dotted by a trail of castles and fortifications interspersed with pretty seaside villages all the way up and down the coast. Head to Bamburgh where the dramatic outline of the castle is visible from miles around, or head to Craster to sample their legendary oak smoked kippers.

Visit the beautiful gardens at Howick Hall; or head inland to experience the medieval splendour of Alnwick Castle with its fantastic child-friendly activity programme inspired by the wizardly magic and broomstick antics of Harry Potter.

For country sports, 12,000 acres of shooting ground is available on nearby local Estates through a highly regarded shooting provider. This includes walked up shooting to high quality driven shooting pheasant and partridges. Duck shooting and roebuck stalking is also available. Walked up shooting from 3 guns onwards. Driven shooting from 120 to 300 birds a day. Catering and transport in field included. Fishing is available on the River Till and Lower Tweed, both just a twenty minute drive.
