    “My wife and I had a lovely week at the cottage, it is warm.”

    well equipped and very comfortable. ...

    well equipped and very comfortable. It is situated in a very small village with hardly any through traffic. Perfect for a restful holiday. It is ideally situated to explore Northumberland and the Scottish Borders with Sea houses, Bamburgh Castle, Amble and Holy Island a short drive away. There is a fantastic village shop in Lowick, 3 miles away that is well worth a visit if you like top quality local food etc. Lowick also has 2 pubs that serve good food. Good Wi-Fi but poor phone signal inside cottage. WhatsApp works fine. The owners of the cottage are very friendly and helpful. We would recommend a stay here to anyone.

The property

Lowick 3 miles.

This delightful romantic retreat is situated in the charming, peaceful village of Bowsden, 3 miles from Lowick.

Once the home of the village blacksmith, this pretty, 200 year old stone cottage has been lovingly modernised to a high standard.

This welcoming single-storey, semi-detached cottage offers bright, sunny rooms, lovely home-made furnishings and an open fire for the odd chilly evening curled up in front of the television.

Outside there is a furnished patio area and a well-maintained, south-facing sheltered garden, perfect for sitting out with a book and a glass of wine, whilst enjoying the last of the evening sunshine and reminiscing about the day’s activities.

The perfect base for discovering Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, this charming holiday home is a great place to return to after a day exploring this beautiful county at any time of year.

The causeway to Holy Island is 10 minutes away, the Heritage Coast with its wonderful vast, sandy beaches, and the impressive castles of Bamburgh, Lindisfarne, Dunstanburgh and Alnwick are also all within easy reach.

The extensive range of maps and walking guides offer a multitude of ideas for rambles in the nearby Cheviot Hills, and cycle rides can be enjoyed along the quiet, picturesque roads of the area.

A comfortable, homely cottage for couples or small families within this superb part of Northumberland.
