Romantic Holiday Breaks and Cottages for Couples


Up until recently, our properties have all had at least 2 bedrooms - but some of you will only need one!

To recognise this, we have introduced several luxury cottages ideal for the romantic couple wanting to experience that romantic cottage holiday.

 Coastal Retreats@The Viking, in a prominent location overlooking the harbour in Seahouses, is perfect for couples and small groups.  Here we have a two bedroom apartment, Bluegrass which will appeal to those you love boutique hotel schemes and are looking for something a bit different from the norm.

  • The Beach Pad, Seahouses - ground floor ultra contemporary apartment with sea views and a short walk from restaurants and pubs
  • Coral Cottage at Budle Sands has two bedrooms and a lovely location within a small collection of renovated farm buidings. It makes an ideal cottage for couples. With a log fire and beatiful garden with superb sea views across Budle Bay towards Holy Island, this Coastal Retreat is proving popular.
  • The Milking Parlour near Bamburgh - renovated barn for 2
  • The New Dairy near Bamburgh - barn conversion, great for 2 - room for another if needed.
  • The Lodge at Shirewater in Embleton is a stylish romantic cottage in the grounds of a late 1920's country house. With one bedroom it is ideal for couples and also for couples with a baby in tow. 
  • Flying Ducks - quirky and stylish stone cottage in quiet hamlet outside of Bamburgh
  • The Forge, Tughall Steads. Small but beautifully formed studio style space with private garden overlooking fields
  • The Alnmouth Boathouse is just a few steps from the seafront in this lovely coastal village with sea views from the upstairs living room, just a short walk from pub and restaurant
