    Whilst the location is excellent in terms of accessing to the Holy Island, The Farne Islands and all areas along the coast between Edinburgh and Newcastle the apartment itself it is without views.Bede Cottage is directly on what is effectively a layby on the A1,it is directly next to a lorry park and petrol station ... so you win in some respects and lose out in others. The apartment is well fitted out, although the spiral staircase from bathroom, kitchen/lounge area up to the bedroom area is quite tight to navigate especially with a suitcase or two or if the bathroom is required during the night - so visitors need to be warned - a level of agility is required to negotiate the bedroom access. Otherwise the facilities are all you would expect, the welcome from the proprietor is warm and our stay afforded us an excellent introduction to the hospitality of Northumbria.

A former schoolhouse, these Beal cottages offer three cosy units, all well thought out to provide comfortable, compact accommodation for a Northumberland break.
