Beds made on arrival including good quality bedlinen, plenty of pillows and duvets and all towels included in price as are all light and heating costs and unlimited WiFi use. Dogs This is perfect dog-walking country. The beach alone stretches for enough miles to wear out the most energetic pooch and has great views of Coquet Island and the lighthouse for the humans. We are happy to accept well-behaved dogs but do confine them to the kitchen/utility area of the house.

Ideal house for Northumberland attractions

  • 5 of 5

Family of 6 and our dog staying in April. We Only had one dry day but did not let it stop us. Lots to do locally and across the road 5 mins walk is Druridge County park. Another mile to the beach. Beautiful house with shops locally and a very large garden and decking area. Would like to visit again in Summer to enjoy the garden more and longer walks.

The house has everything you need for children they have games, dvds and beach items. it is beautifully clean and in a quiet area.

Brilliant house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

All of us (2 adults, 2 teenagers, 1 10 year old and 2 dogs) felt completely at home from the moment we arrived. The house is perfect for families - it's spacious and has a beautiful garden. Loads of toys for younger children and very well equipped. Very close to the beach and in a great position for exploring the fantastic Northumberland coast. I'm sure we'll be back.

Druridge Bay

1 mile from Druridge Bay Beach-huge, clean and often deserted even in summer it is a perfect child's beach. Great for sandcastles, safe bathing and rock pools at low tide. You can walk for miles along its length with great views of Coquet Island and it's lighthouse. We are across the road from Druridge Bay Country Park which has a lake with many birds and lovely walks. Watersports are available and there is a cafe and 2 children's play areas.

We are 3 miles from Amble with it's harbour, market various shops and new indoor swimming pool with child's pool. We are a short drive to Warkworth with it's beautiful medieval castle, river walks and quirky shops. Half an hour brings you to Alnwick with it's award winning gardens and Harry Potter castle. Bamburgh, Seahouses, Craster and Holy Island are approx 30 miles north of us with good road links

Other Activities: bird watching
