  • "A lovely property with great views down to the beach."

  • "Perfect location."

    Clean, nicely turned out and has everything you need for a vacation. Nothing not to like about it.

  • "Great property idyllic location."

    We have already booked again for 2023. I just cannot find anything not to love about the cottage and the location. Views of the bay with Dunstanburgh castle in the distance from the top window. Parking behind the cottage where parking is at a premium. 100yds walk to the beach. Fantastic coastal path walks on the door step. On top of this 50yds to the fisherman's cottages with the ship inn nestled in the middle. The Ship brews its own beer, has great food, friendly staff and is a proper pub (recommend you book a table if you want to eat indoors especially in season). The cottage is comfortable and has everything you need including a large back garden.

    Perfect base for coastal walking and wildlife. Excellent pub on the doorstep with beer brewed onsite (the Sea Coal is an excellent stout). Will definitely return.

    ..close to the beach and for walks. Also, easy driving to local beauty spots. Very peaceful and relaxing environment and cottage was lovely and met all of our requirements.

  • "The photos didn't do the location justice."

    The constantly changing view of the sea, sky and Dunstanburgh Castle from the cottage was wonderful as was the incredible breadth of wildlife thanks to the nearby nature reserve. And yes, you can hear the sea from the cottage. We were also really impressed by the cleanliness of the beach and the quietness of the area. A wonderful holiday for anyone who wants to be somewhere quiet away from the crowds.

  • "The cottage is cosy and very convenient for Lindisfarne Alnwick and Bamburgh which are great places to visit."

    There is a lovely sea view from the front of the cottage and some great walks round the nature reserve and the beach. Good pub in the village which brews its own beer. We had a great holiday. The owner kept us really well informed right from booking to departing.

  • "Superbly situated,views across the bay to Dunstanburgh Castle."

    Cottage as described. Kitchen in dire need of a pair of scissors which actually cut, and a small saucepan. MIssed our dishwasher, freezer, washing-machine and dryer. Odd three single beds in front bedroom. Chest of drawers in back bedroom inaccessible as too close to the bottom of the bed, so no storage in that cramped room. Bathroom also cramped. Steep open-treaded stairs difficult for those with limited mobility, and unsuitable for young children. We had an enjoyable week's stay, but will not be returning due to the comments above.

    Many thanks for your feedback. We understand that you missed some of your white goods during your stay, however we do not advertise these items at this property. The photos on the website do show clearly the open tread staircase and the configuration of the bedrooms and bathroom. We will check the scissors and saucepans on our next visit and we thank you again for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is in a perfect location with wonderful views."

    Excellent for walking straight out to sandy beaches, rocky headlands, dunes and a local bird hide. Two nearby pubs with great food and lots of places to visit within a short drive or bus ride. The cottage itself is cosy and well equipped, spotlessly clean and ideal for a couple or small family. Bigger groups can rent next door too. Hope to return and will definitely recommend.

The property

This is a delightful cottage, superbly located in the much sought-after village of Low Newton-by-the-Sea, near Beadnell.

A former coastguard's cottage and within walking distance of the beach, this Low Newton-by-the-Sea cottage is a great spot for that family seaside break.

With a lovely wooden floor, open plan living area, comfortable furniture and spectacular views of the long golden beach leading to Embleton, this really is a gem of a cottage.

The large, front lawned garden with furniture, which is shared with 3B Coastguard Cottages next door, is a super place for children to play or for you to have a relaxing tipple whilst soaking up the spectacular Heritage Coastline.

This Low Newton-by-the-Sea cottage is only a short walk from The Ship Inn, an award-winning pub, where the green to the front of the pub is always busy with people enjoying a drink whilst watching the fishing boats in the bay.

A short walk from the property will take you to the National Trust nature reserve Newton Pool, a fresh water lake behind the dunes and a breeding ground to numerous birds.

Bird hides are provided, including one hide being suitable for those with limited mobility.

There are excellent walks in every direction; travel north for a good brisk walk along the beach to Beadnell or travel south and you reach Embleton Bay, Dunstanburgh Castle and Craster, where you can sample the delights of a crab sandwich in the Jolly Fisherman or pick up some kippers from Robson's famous smokery.

If you ever want to leave your cottage in Low Newton-by-the-Sea, there is so much to see and do in Northumberland, with Alnwick Castle and gardens, Holy Island, Bamburgh, Warkworth, Beadnell and Berwick all within easy reach.

This really is a superb cottage for that much-needed family break.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref: 27680 and together they can sleep 8 people.

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
