About Sandpiper Cottage

Burnfoot Holiday Cottages offer an exclusive collection of exceptional holiday homes in a superb location on the edge of the beautiful Northumberland National Park. With the huge dark skies, wonderfully clean air and miles of stunning landscape of the National Park, and the spectacular Heritage coastline with its glorious golden sands (twenty three miles away), there are no shortage of opportunities to do as much or as little as you want at Burnfoot.

Nestling within a Site of Special Scientific Interest with glorious views over the Cheviot Hills, guests are assured a restful retreat to escape the hustle and bustle of every day life. The area is a haven for wildlife with deer, badgers, otters, owls and notoriously shy kingfishers to spot, along with sea trout and salmon that can be seen leaping out of the water when spawning as they battle their way up the babbling burns that pass through Burnfoot.

For those who want to discover Northumberland's many attractions, the holiday cottages are ideally placed for visiting Alnwick with its boutiques to browse and stunning castle; the peaceful market town of Rothbury; National Trust Cragside, a stunning Victorian country house and Hadrian's Wall, one of the most famous World Heritage Sites. Also within easy reach is the bustling harbour town of Seahouses where you can take a trip to the Farne Islands; Holy Island; Craster which is famed for its smoked kippers; Bamburgh with its golden beach fringed with sand dunes, sitting in the shadows of iconic Bamburgh Castle and Berwick-upon-Tweed which is just a stones throw from the Scottish Borders - the choices are endless and you are sure to want to return time and time again.

Beautifully converted, the holiday cottages are presented to a very high standard offering the perfect blend of traditional features with modern conveniences including oak doors, wood burning stoves, stylish kitchens and sumptuous beds, complimented by lovely Farrow and Ball shades. Outside has every bit as much appeal with plenty of space for the little ones to let off steam, swings, climbing frame, a slide, bike storage and an outdoor championship tennis court for guest use. Star gazing evenings with a local astronomer and beauty therapy for those who want some pampering whilst away can also be arranged.

Netherton is the local village and just a quarter of a mile walk from the cottages where you will find The Star Inn, a fantastic pub well known for its fine ale. The Pennine Cycleway is just a short pedal from Burnfoot and for the more adventurous mountain biker, a trip to Thrunton Woods with miles of tracks and trails is a must. When in season, some of the finest salmon and trout fishing is available on the nearby River Coquet and golfers can enjoy a round at Rothbury Golf Club (18 hole and five miles from the cottages). Why not get a birds eye view of the Cheviots and book a hang gliding lesson? With miles and miles of walking available on the doorstep, including paths that take you to the very heart of the National Park, along with some excellent climbing opportunities, there are no end of outdoor activities to satisfy the most energetic of outdoor enthusiast.

Whatever the time of year, a break at Burnfoot Holiday Cottages is sure to leave you relaxed, revitalised and wanting to return again.

Location (Northumberland National Park)

Each of the stone cottages have been thoughtfully converted to protect the fascinating heritage which connects the farm steading to Lord Armstrong, the English industrialist who once resided at Cragside Estate, for which the steading was once part of.

Sitting on the site where a cart shed once stood, Sandpiper Cottage provides a welcoming retreat for up to four guests.

Accommodation is split-level and comprises:

Ground floor

  • Open-plan living area which is well presented and cosy with space to dine, cook and relax. The lounge area has comfy leather sofas, a Freeview flat screen television, DVD player and iPod docking for guest enjoyment. A dining table seats four and the kitchen is well equipped with oven, hob with extractor above, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine and fridge.
  • There is also a large cupboard under the stairs for storing boots and outdoor gear.

First floor

  • Landing area adding to the sense of space.
  • Double bedroom with tables beside the bed, chest of drawers and wardrobe for clothes storage.
  • Twin bedroom which is exceptionally appealing to children with two single beds, television with DVD player on top of the chest of drawers and a toy box.
  • Family bathroom with electric shower (and screen) over the bath, WC and wash basin.

Outside: A small patio area for alfresco dining is accessed via the living area. Off-road parking in the courtyard car park.

Additional information: Wi-Fi internet access available in the cottage. Short breaks are available (three nights starting on a Friday and four nights from a Monday). Online booking available via the owners website - please click through. Heating, electricity, bed linen, towels and logs are included in the price. Cots, high chairs and stair gates available upon request. Up to two dogs welcome (please note there will be an additional cleaning charge of £25 for one dog and £45 for two).
