Set near a tranquil Northumberland village by the coast, this spacious and stylish single-storey cottage for two is perfect for an idyllic holiday in picturesque surroundings.
Only 1 mile down the road from this charming cottage is the pretty village of Lucker, where you can enjoy a meal at the local inn with your four-legged friend beside you. There are no steps in the cottage, perfect for tired legs after long days of walking, and there’s a homely wood burner which will warm your evenings. After countless games of fetch across the coast and countryside, your hound can put their paws up in front of the fire for a well-deserved rest.
At the heart of the cottage is the open-plan living area, a light and airy lounge/kitchen/diner. There’s plenty of space for a comfy bed or blanket in here, for hounds to retreat to once their bowl has been licked clean of dinner and they’re beginning to settle down for the evening. After your own meal at the breakfast-bar style wooden table, enjoy the glow of the fire over on the sofa. Scratch your top dog’s ears while you watch TV or a film, and in no time your dog will be stretched out and snoring, tired and happy from all the fun and fuss. Wake well-rested in the smart and stylish double bedroom and indulge in a re-energising soak in the shower room. If it’s a bright morning, take a hearty brunch and a bone for your pup into the enclosed patio garden. There are French doors in both the living area and the bedroom for ease. Outside you may even spot a red squirrel on the feeders.
Explore the Northumberland Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which will set tails wagging with its castles, ruins, and sandy beaches. Have a nose around the impressive ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle (12.5 miles) and sniff out the secrets of Bamburgh Castle (5 miles) with a visit to the dog-friendly castle grounds, Armstrong & Aviation Museum, Victorian Stables, and Tack Room Cafe.
