Explore Northumberland

This bijou accommodation offers a comfortable base from which to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty along the Northumberland Heritage coast.

An easy 15 minute stroll takes you down to Embleton Bay which was once voted the most romantic bay in England. From here you can walk along the coast to Newton By the Sea or Craster which is famous for its kippers. The whole area is rich in friendly pubs and cafes. Visit Alnwick , the Lionheart of Northumberland, with its cobbled streets, interesting shops and pubs (the castle was used as Harry Potters Hogwarts), or take a trip to the Farne Islands from nearby Seahouses. A day trip to Holy Island (the birthplace of the Kingdoms Christianity) is a must but check the tides!

Children are welcome at Poppy Cottage and a, high chair, cot and safety gate are available.
