About Set Square Cottage

Set Square Cottage   NOW 20% Discount Available  Steve and Mia's passion for their holiday home is everywhere you look. This welcoming property is in the peaceful hamlet of North Togston, barely a mile from Amble's spectacular beach and harbour. It's a perfect place for a self-catering holiday in Northumberland. It has room to sleep five people in three bedrooms. Outside you have a gravel courtyard with table and seating, and a contemporary country interior that families find both comfortable and practical.

Amble is a gorgeous coastal village. You're on holiday, so settle down with coffee and a slice of homemade cake in a harbour cafe as you watch the fishing boats unload their catch of the day. Stroll around  stopping at independent shops and eat a delicious lunch in one of the many restauarants and bars.  Watch the catch being unloaded and pick up a fresh fillet from the family-run Alliance Fish stall on the Harbour  You're only ten miles from Alnwick Castle, it is famous for its role as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films and Downton Abbey but infamous for its bloody battles and ghostly tales. We recommend a full day to explore Alnwick Castle and gardens as there is so much to see.

There are endless ways to entertain yourself when you stay at Set Square Cottage, no matter what time of year you stay. Children love poking around in the rockpools on the beach by the harbour, and the seven-mile stretch of sandy beach along Druridge Bay to Cresswell is a gorgeous spot to blow away the cobwebs or work up an appetite for a cosy pub lunch. Hire a kayak or paddle board from the surf school, or follow the traffic-free walking and cycling track from Warkworth to Almouth. Further afield, York, Durham, Berwick-Upon-Tweed and Edinburgh are all accessible by train from Alnmouth, and you can take a boat trip to Coquet Island to see the birds, seals and other sea life. There is a bus stop immediately at the bottom of the drive perfect should you not wish to drive. 

Set Square Cottage is completely private and self-contained. It's 30m to its sister cottage, The Old Corn Crush. Depending on availability, these can be booked in tandem to accommodate up to 11 people.
