Superbly located on the dramatic Northumberland coast, this converted farm cottage offers comfortable beach-side accommodation, a sense of tranquillity and a wealth of outdoor activities.

This spacious holiday cottage sleeping up to eight people forms part of a farm conversion in the charming restful hamlet of Low Newton. Stroll a few paces from the property, through some dunes, and you arrive at a stunning stretch of silver sand. Much of the area is owned by the National Trust, including the scenic coastal trail south to Cranston via Dunstanburgh Castle, which can be walked in around two hours. Low Newton itself features whitewashed old fisherman’s cottages and the famous Ship Inn, which features its own micro-brewery and serves delicious fare including fresh lobster from Newton Bay. Windsurf from the beach, play golf at a local course or drive to Alnwick to marvel at its ‘Harry Potter’ castle.

Accommodation in the three-bedroom cottage is all on one level and is accessed via the back door, which leads into a large kitchen with everything you need for your break, including a dining table seating up to six, microwave, Nespresso Coffee Machine and dishwasher. A washing machine and tumble dryer can be found in the cupboard in the hallway. Both the lounge and dining area look out on to the picturesque dunes; the former features two comfortable sofas, TV and a selection of games, while the latter provides a quieter space in which to unwind at a table that seats up to eight. A door from the dining room leads to a large porch at the front of the cottage, perfect for drying rain-soaked clothes (this is Northumberland, so it’s likely!) and wetsuits. You will love the beach vistas from the two tastefully decorated double bedrooms, while the third cosy bedroom incorporates two sets single beds. A bathroom with bath and WC is complemented by a separate shower room with WC.

Outside, There is a grassy area to the front of the cottage which is part of the National Trust.

The cottage was very comfortable and cosy. Unfortunately we missed the first night because the power was off and the village cut off by the storm. Although the cottage had been cleaned, it must have been difficult with no power. the cottage was beautiful, the setting was amazing and the village was beautiful. Great base for seeing the best of NorthRead moreumberland. Hide

Lovely clean, comfy cottage within a few minutes walk of the beach. We had a great stay - only down side was the queue at the Ship Inn to order lunch - 30 minute wait, although the pies were delivered within 5 mins of ordering. The Joiners Arms just up the road is highly recommended (very dog friendly) and their take away fish and chips also very gRead moreood. Hide

We love Beach Retreat. The easy access to the beach, coast path and RSPB hide; being close to the Ship Inn, but not impacted by its visitors makes it our favourite holiday stay. The sea was warmer than Cornwall in late June!

Beautiful location, with almost direct beach access, and lovely walks. Good pubs nearby. New double glazing is great, as is new heating system - very cosy, with lots of hot water. Expect cars parking next to your garden to be a problem, and there is no garden privacy. Bed 3 is very small, with 2 sets of bunks suitable only for very young children.
