About Dunes Cottage

Dunes Cottage sleeps up to four people in two bedrooms and is a mere shell's throw away from the beautiful Northumberland coast, making it the perfect place for couples and families who can't wait to explore this incredible landscape. Northumberland is known for its stunning sandy beaches which reach for miles, and the stretch between Sandbanks and Beadnell, where Dunes Cottage sits, is no exception. The pretty stone cottage is part of the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), a short stroll across the Annstead Dunes Nature Reserve to the water and within walking distance of many restaurants and pubs nearby.

The cottage is on a family-run farm approximately half a mile from Seahouses where visitors have ready access to places to eat, drink and shop. The harbour is the place to go for a boat trip to the Farne Islands, a beautiful nature reserve managed by the National Trust, where one of the UK's biggest colonies of grey seals live. It is also home to thousands of sea birds, including puffins, and offers a unique wildlife experience.

Beadnell is also just half a mile from Dunes Cottage. The water off the coast may be a little brisk, but it is incredibly clean and monitored weekly between May and September. Both Beadnell and Seahouses are shallow and popular for swimming, fishing and surfing. Beadnell is also a popular choice for kiteboarders and wakeboarders. The coast here is so long that it's rare to see more than a handful of people around you, even in the height of summer, while in winter you may have the beach entirely to yourself.

Nearby attractions include Holy Island, about half an hour's drive from the cottage or a relaxed boat ride from Seahouses. The beautiful island is considered the cradle of Christianity in the UK and is still a place of pilgrimage for those with strong faith. The causeway is covered twice a day so check the tide times before setting out. Bamburgh Castle a ten-minute drive north, while some visitors may recognise nearby Alnwick Castle from the Harry Potter films. Alnwick is an excellent choice for a day out as, in addition to the castle, it has a local museum, shops and places to eat and drink.

Walking, cycling and horse riding are just three of many ways visitors can appreciate first hand the beauty of the landscape. Local stables can arrange a horse ride along the beach, while there are miles of footpaths and cycling routes leading virtually from the cottage door. There are also five golf courses within a 20-minute drive.

Dunes Cottage is on a 600-acre family farm. It is one of several lovely self-catering cottages on the farm which can, depending on availability, be booked together to accommodate extended families or groups of friends. Please see their website for more information.
