Overview

Enjoy open-plan living in this spacious rural haven designed for two.

With stunning beaches on the doorstep, this one bedroom cottage is perfectly positioned to explore the beauty of the Northumberland coastline

With a tranquil location on an organic farm in the middle of the 2,500 acre Fallodon Estate, and within easy reach of Alnwick and Bamburgh, this charming one bedroom cottage offers an ideal base for exploring Northumberland’s dramatic coastline. Positioned alongside a historic water mill, you can simply switch off from the bustle of life and embrace this rural escape.

As soon as you arrive at Garden Cottage, you’ll note the attention to detail and the inspired design touches that flow throughout this interior. The open-plan living space forms the heart of this beautiful cottage and is generously proportioned, with plenty of room to enjoy cooking and dining together before curling up in front of the wood-burning stove to watch a movie. Sliding doors open onto the patio, where you’ll find garden furniture for al fresco meals, with a step leading to the fenced garden beyond, and this creates a lovely indoor-outdoor flow of space on warmer days.

The kitchen features Shaker-style cabinetry in a dove grey hue, with marbled worktops, complemented by oak dining furniture for a classic-contemporary look. Colourful rugs and patterned textiles and lampshades add pops of colour and personality to this open-plan space, alongside understated neutrals in the furniture. The wood-burner offers a cosy focal point alongside the relaxed seating, while the ceiling-height bookcase is filled with titles to browse, so you can light the stove (logs are provided from wood felled on the Fallodon estate) and curl up with a book if the weather shifts.

Indeed this interior has been designed with outdoor adventures in mind as the large hallway offers storage space to offload boots and coats, and it’s also the perfect spot to wipe down any canine companions – two dogs are welcome here.

Accessed from the living space, the bedroom features an elegant upholstered bed, and the warm, neutral colour palette is punctuated by sophisticated textiles, accessories and artworks, creating a sumptuous haven. The bathroom echoes this aesthetic and features a separate bath and a large walk-in shower, with geometric tiling adding a contemporary edge.

Both the heating and the hot water are provided by the biomass boiler that’s fuelled by woodchip harvested from the surrounding estate – a wonderful sustainable touch in this thoughtfully designed cottage. With spectacular beaches on the doorstep and coastal paths to explore, along with a wealth of historic sites, this is a place to unwind and recharge while discovering the beauty of this area.

Location

There’s no shortage of places to eat in the area, with everything from cosy pubs to comfy cafes, not forgetting some of the best fish and chips of course!

The hugely popular Ship Inn at Low Newton (3 miles) is renowned for great seafood lunches and its microbrewery, or try the Joiners Arms in nearby Newton By The Sea. Follow the coastal trail to sample delicious crab sandwiches at the highly regarded Jolly Fisherman at Craster (6 miles) or head to the lovely Shoreline Cafe for a steaming cappuccino and home-made cakes - muddy boots and dogs welcome! A must-visit is Robson’s Smokehouse, home of the famous Craster kippers as well as a wonderful selection of smoked delicacies, fresh fish, shellfish, cheeses and other delicious local produce from the Northumberland heartlands.

For evening dining, try the Potted Lobster at Bamburgh which has a fantastic reputation for producing exceptional seasonal dishes using the very best produce the area has to offer, while fans of the traditional British takeaway should head to Pinnacles in Seahouses (7 miles).

A little further afield, you will find a greater range of amenities in nearby Alnwick (9 miles) with an eclectic selection of specialist shops, including a deli, bakery, award-winning butcher’s, charming coffee and gift shops, as well as a number of large supermarkets for holiday provisions.

Activities

A leisurely two mile walk will take you onto the beach which extends to Low Newton-by-the-Sea and Embleton Bay, a breathtaking stretch of coastline just perfect for families where you can spend endless hours paddling, sandcastle-building, walking, surfing and body-boarding.

The Northumberland Coastal Path and National Cycle Route 1 also runs right through this area taking in scenic coastal paths for walking and biking and never-ending beaches all the way along to Beadnell Bay, which is also one of the best equipped places in the county for watersports. Backed by huge dunes which offer shelter for a cosy picnic on blustery days, the wide, golden sands of this horseshoe shaped bay make it a popular destination for families with options for kitesurfing, bodyboarding, coasteering and kayaking with a number of accredited schools and instructors across the area.

For golf fans, there are scenic courses at Foxton, Alnmouth, Alnwick and Dunstanburgh, while fishing enthusiasts can cast a line on the lake below the mill and in the Brunton burn that runs down to the sea - by arrangement with the estate office.

Sitting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, nature lovers, birdwatchers and photographers will be captivated by the vast variety of wildlife and birdlife right on the doorstep, or why not take a boat trip from nearby Seahouses where you will be enthralled by the thousands of breeding sea-birds and seals taking up every square foot of this incredible rocky outcrop, including over 37,000 pairs of characterful Puffins. Alternatively, Ross Links and Holy Island are both top spots for vast numbers of migrant species, including the chance to see the odd grey seal bobbing inquisitively in the sea, while sightings of minke whales and white-beaked dolphins can also be spotted in calm sea conditions.

History buffs will delight in visits to the grand stately homes and medieval castles of the area - Dunstanburgh, Warkworth, Bamburgh and Lindisfarne stand as reminders of the area’s turbulent past, or head inland to the magnificent Alnwick Castle for a super family day out. Here you will find an activity programme brimming with adventure where children can take part in all sorts of magic and mayhem inspired by the characters of Harry Potter or test their knightly courage in the Dragon Quest.

Finally, for garden lovers, a visit to the stunning setting of Alnwick Gardens, Howick Hall and Cragside is an absolute must, with spectacular colours and beautiful walks through the grounds.
