Tucked away in a peaceful and secluded village setting, these five comfortably furnished holiday cottages are set in an idyllic location, only 5 miles from the spectacular Bamburgh Castle and one of the longest sandy beaches in England, and within a few minutes’ drive of Seahouses, where regular boat trips depart for the Farne Islands. Furnished to a high standard, and close to the owners’ home, Fordson offers single-storey accommodation and Ferguson is a detached two-storey cottage. The Mill House stands as a detached converted barn, with Waren View and The Granary Cottage forming an adjoining pair. This is an ideal choice for family holidays, with use of a very pleasant lawned area by a stream. There is also shared use of the owners’ hard tennis court nearby, and guests may relax in the sauna or work out in the gym, built close to the cottages.Ferguson is traditionally decorated throughout, the inviting living room with electric fire in arched stone surround and cosy furniture to snuggle into makes the perfect spot for relaxing with the family at the end of a busy day. The well-equipped kitchen/dining room will be enjoyed by the budding chef in your group. Upstairs are the three bedroom, two double rooms and one twin room, all with their own en-suite bathrooms meaning there will be no rushing to get ready.Warenford Village serves as an excellent base from which to discover Northumberland and the Scottish border country. Between the Cheviots and the sea, there is easy touring through the beautiful countryside with its numerous castles, stately homes, and National Trust properties. Just 4 miles distant lies Budle Bay, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the ancient walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed (15 miles) and the Duchess of Northumberland’s ornamental gardens a short drive away. Also, sure to delight both young and old alike is a visit to neighbouring Alnwick Castle, which served as the location for the Harry Potter films. Within easy reach, too, is Holy Island – renowned for its medieval religious heritage, priory and picturesque castle – and also known by its Anglo-Saxon name of Lindisfarne.There are quiet country lanes for cycling and several excellent golf courses nearby, as well as a selection of shops in Belford (3 miles) and good inns and restaurants in which to enjoy a family meal locally – the nearest pub with restaurant being just 30 yards.
