  • "What a fantastic find!"

    This cottage is beautifully furnished, clean and welcoming. The wine, tea bags, biscuits were all welcome coupled with the cosy feel of the cottage made it extra special. The lovely bedrooms with nice new bedding were lovely, even our dog loved it. Great location in the village coupled with a lovely pub just made our holiday extra special, we will definitely be booking again. A big thank you to Vivian and Stephen for being a lovely hosts.

The property

Settled in the small village of West Thirston near Felton in Northumberland, is this splendid, detached cottage, Carinya Cottage.

Enjoying an open-plan layout and easy access to the local amenities, Carinya Cottage makes for an excellent dwelling for a family of four or two couples looking to explore the wonders of Northumberland.

Park-up in one of two convenient off-road parking spaces, before unloading your bags with ease and stepping into the property to begin your holiday.

Be charmed by the open-plan living space, sure to be the social hub during your stay, where you can look forward to creating exciting culinary dishes in the fully-functioning kitchen, with oven, hob, fridge/freezer and microwave.

Gather around the round dining table for four to savour a flavourful meal, as fizz is poured, and glasses are raised to a wonderful getaway.

If the weather is nice, why not make dinner an alfresco affair out on the private patio, where you can revel in the remains of the day’s sunshine.

As the evening cools, indulge in a refreshing shower before climbing into one of two sumptuous double beds to catch your rest.

Venture out to explore the nearby village of Felton, where along your way you will find the welcoming Northumberland Arms, 4-star hotel with restaurant and bar for when you fancy a night off from the kitchen.

A little further you will find The Running Fox, a popular coffee shop where you can sample a slice of cake and a steaming cup of coffee.

Followed by a leisurely stroll along the River Coquet.

For a fun-filled family day, why not make the short trip to the Northumberland Country Zoo, where you will find meerkats and snow leopards as well as birds of prey shows, promising a memorable day for all!

Take the short drive to the market town of Alnwick, home to the well-known Alnwick Castle which featured in the famous Harry Potter films and frequently holds events.

At the Castle you can wander the expansive gardens which include a poison garden that houses deadly nightshades.

Nearby is the Bailiffgate Museum, housed in a 19th-century church which details the town's rich history, a great way to learn about local life from past to present.

A sanctuary in the heart of Northumberland, choose Carinya Cottage.

The village has a shop, coffee shop, pub and restaurant, and is just 10 miles from Alnwick, with its Castle and now famous Garden, which features Europe's largest cascading water feature, an enormous tree house, a rose garden and an ornamental walled garden. The castle is also famous as the setting for Hogwarts School featured in the "Harry Potter" films! Alnwick offers a good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat and there is plenty to see and do, with miles of golden sandy beaches, numerous castles and boat trips to the famous Farne Islands all available nearby. Altogether a superb location for exploring Northumberland and its stunning Heritage Coastline.
