  • "Wayside cottage, was an ideal location to all surrounding beaches, walks and other villages within the vicinity - we did miss a local shop for basic requirements and ended up going to Seahouses to do a basic shop."

    We had a slight issue with basic cleanliness on some of the glasses and crockery, but otherwise a very, comfortable, warm and cosy cottage - I'm sure we will be visiting and staying in this area again, in the not too distant future.....beautiful part of the country

  • "Lovely short break."

    Wayside cottage was a little dated in places ( which we were aware of by the photos) but it was a clean warm cosy retreat. Lovely walks on the doorstep. Would return.

  • "Wayside is in a beautiful area ( one of our favourite places) and benefits from the great location, good sized rooms and an enclosed garden."

    The decor is a bit dated and compared to other properties we have stayed in in the area was missing a few basics eg hairdryer, oven gloves, spare rubbish bags etc These were minor inconveniences and we still had a lovely time there

  • "This is the second time we have stayed in Wayside and it didn't disappoint."

    Location is 5* and the cottage itself is just honest and lovely. Yes, it's dated but it is clean, comfortable and cosy (even though its spacious). Perfect when you have 2 children and a dog. The garden is magical for the children and really well maintained. The Ship, Football Hole, Beadnell Beach, Low Newton (with its amazing view of Dunstanburgh Castle) are all in easy walking distance. Everything else is an easy drive. The only thing it lacks is a tumble dryer but who wants to do washing on holiday anyway

  • "Yes please."

    ...... 1 …The hot water tap was scolding hot my grand-daughters. There should be warnings. 2 No slip mats in the showers or bath. 3 Toilet seat in en-suite was dirty and wobbly 4 Duvets in bunk-beds were uncomfortable for the children as they appeared to be for winter rather than summer. 5 The shower in the double bedroom was not working when we arrived. Good points. The garden was a delight. Wonderful beach just a short walk away. We enjoyed our stay but unless changes are made we would not stay there again.Mrs Linda Richardson.

    Large enclosed garden very useful with dog, also good for barbecue or just sitting. Joiners Arms virtually next door, beach at Football Hole about 15 minutes walk, beach and Ship Inn at Low Newton about 20 mins walk. Nothing to criticise at all.

    It’s comfortable, warm and spacious with a beautiful garden filled with birds. The location is fantastic, near two of the most amazing beaches (and pubs) you’ll ever see. We’ll be back.

  • "The cottage was ideally situated for us."

    A relatively short walk from the beach and the nature reserve and located approximately half way between Seahouses and Alnwick.The cottage is very well equipped with all the facilities we needed. We found the beds comfortable and the bathroom facilities good. We loved the garden and all the bird life in it. The Joiner's Arms is almost next door and provides excellent take away fish and chips. This was our second visit to the cottage this year.

The property

Resting in the picturesque village of High Newton near Newton-by-the-Sea in Northumberland, Wayside Cottage is a traditional cottage ideal for a family holiday.

The property is rustic in style and offers guests a warm welcome with a charming sitting room complete with woodburning stove, creating a suitably inviting ambience.

The country kitchen is fully fitted with an excellent range of facilities, so you can create delicious food for the whole family and when it’s ready to serve, step into the elegant dining table where a rustic table awaits.

This room is delightfully appealing with a feature fireplace and traditional wood adding up to make the room feel really warming and is somewhere you can imagine spending many happy hours tucking into hearty meals together.

The gardens are a particular feature at Wayside Cottage with plenty of room for the children (and any pets!) to explore, while the adults can pull up a chair on the terrace, sit back and relax, knowing the children are safe; this is what holidays are made of.

When it’s time for bed, guests can choose from two doubles and a single, or cool bunk beds for the children.

All are presented in a traditional style and offer a calming place to rest your weary heads.

Wayside Cottage is in the perfect location for getting out and about exploring with the pretty village of High Newton on the doorstep which has an excellent pub and some great walks as well as a beautiful sandy beach just a few minutes’ walk away.

Nearby Newton-by-the-Sea is just as attractive and well worth a visit with the popular fishing villages of Beadnell and Craster just a few miles away too.

Head out for a hike along any of the coastal paths in the area and you can’t fail to be impressed by the stunning sea views along the way.

Attractions worth a visit include Dunstanburgh Castle, Hadrian’s Wall, Bamburgh Castle, Northumberland Country Zoo and RSPB reserves at Hauxley and Annstead.
