Full of charm and character, this cosy, beautiful and unique studio-style coastal cottage for two offers stunning views and is an ideal romantic getaway in the heart of the Northumberland countryside.
Set in the quiet and quaint hamlet of Bilton, the property benefits from a peaceful location while being only 1.5 miles from the coastal village of Alnmouth. There you’ll find a pleasant sandy beach for a stroll, as well as shops and several warm and welcoming dog-friendly pubs. Stylish and snug, the cottage is the perfect place for you to come and relax, while spending some quality time with your faithful four-pawed pal.
Inside, the cottage is bright and homely, with a nautical-style colour scheme and an open-plan layout. Thoughtful details and furnishings maximise the space: a clever triangular dining table for two where you can tuck into a romantic meal, plenty of shelving as well as a floor-to-ceiling wardrobe for storage, and a double bed that folds up to the wall. Whatever the size of your beloved hound, there’s more than enough room for their comfiest of cushions and a favourite blanket. While you’re enjoying the views from the large window over a glass of wine, or settling onto the sofa for a film, they’ll be curled up happily at your feet. Outside, dine alfresco in the patio garden while your dog basks in the sun, chewing on a toy and munching on a few treats from your pocket.
As well as the many beaches where your pup can chase balls and go for a doggy-paddle in the waves, when it comes to walkies follow the coastal path for the ruins of Warkworth Castle (4 miles) to the south, and Dunstanburgh Castle (9.5 miles) to the north. For something extra-special during your holiday, treat your top dog to a journey in style. Board The Aln Valley Railway (4 miles) for a romantic ride back in time to the days of steam.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
