  • "As always enjoyed our stay even though this time my friend was affected by a bad leg and had difficulty walking."

    We left a day early due to this but would like to thank Deborah again for her hospitality and friendliness. We look forward to coming again in May next year. It is a lovely holiday cottage and extremely dog friendly. Many thanks Deborah.

    The sun room is lovely, its so relaxing. We spend most of our holiday in there. The owner now lives next door and is very approachable and also a dog lover. She regularly makes improvements and is happy to have feedback.

The property

Longhoughton 1.4 miles.

With a village pub and ground-floor accommodation for three guests, Finians Rainbow, resting in Boulmer, near Longhoughton, is an ideal Northumbrian getaway for a couple or group of adults.

Park off-road and unpack with ease into this lovely property, making yourself at home in one of the two sitting areas, beginning with a tastefully furnished sitting room with an electric fire stove to add a countryside cottage feel, as well as accents of blue complementing vintage furniture and leather sofas.

The second option is a lovely sunroom with a TV, where large windows allow in seas of light and views across the garden, as well as a second dining area ideal for family breakfast, and you can access the gravelled garden through double glass doors in the sunroom, a space with outdoor seating and pretty colourful shrubs for you to enjoy.

When mealtimes call, all of your culinary needs will be catered to by a spacious kitchen with tiled flooring and many amenities.

As the evening wears on, freshen up in the shower room before cosying up for the night in one of the two bedrooms, an airy double with storage and a single.

Boulmer is a lovely hamlet resting beside the sea, and there is a selection of local activities for you to enjoy, as well as easy access to a local pub, coastal views from Boulmer Steel and of course the stunning sandy Boulmer Beach.

If you need to stock up on essentials, then head over to Longhoughton, where there is a convenience store, or visit the town of Alnmouth, where there is a convenience store, as well as a selection of eateries, an art gallery, another sandy beach and a golf club.

From here, the historic market town of Alnwick is within easy reach, where you will be able to explore the impressive Alnwick Castle.

Make the most of the coast of Northumberland with a stay at Finians Rainbow.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Longhoughto 1.4 miles; Alnmouth 3.3 miles; Bamburgh 16.3 miles

Boulmer is a delightful fishing village resting close to the picturesque village of Alnmouth on the famous Northumberland Heritage Coast. Home to RAF Boulmer, the village has a volunteer lifeboat station and is a fine example of a traditional fishing village. There is a popular pub serving food but no shop here with the nearest convenience store in Longhoughton which is a few miles away. Just outside of Longhoughton, is the delightful village of Alnmouth which boasts miles of sandy beaches just waiting to be discovered as well as a good selection of shops and eateries and a golf course. Jump in the car for a short but scenic drive to Alnwick, famous for its castle and gardens, with attractions a little further afield including Dunstanburgh Castle, Howick Hall and Gardens, Northumberland Country Zoo, Farne Islands and Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre. Activities worth having a go at include golf at Alnmouth Golf Club, horse-riding at Slate Hall Riding Centre, surfing at Bamburgh Castle Beach and sailing at Beadnell Sailing Club.
