 Seahouses harbour

  1. Seafarer’s, Seahouses: sleeps 7

A perfectly placed cottage for visiting The Farne Islands, or heading north to Bamburgh, Seafarer’s is a traditional cottage with an arty feel at the heart of Seahouses old quarter. In walking distance of Seahouses beach, pubs, the harbour, shops and restaurants, it is just the place for those who would prefer not to use the car. Available: August 10-17 and August 27-September 3 (£1280)


3.The New Dairy, Bamburgh: sleeps 3 or 4

This boutique-style barn conversion is one of our Platinum Retreats and popular with couples or families with young children looking to relax in style. At just one mile from the beach and Bamburgh village it is close to some of Northumberland’s best attractions as well as to The Ocean Club private leisure club, of which membership is included in your stay (a small entry fee applies). Available: August 13-20 (£1325)

 Alnmouth village

4.The Alnmouth Boathouse, Alnmouth: sleeps 2

Just a few steps across the golf course from this intimate bolthole and you will feel the sand of Alnmouth beach between your toes. Located in the centre of this village with its well-known colourful painted houses, The Alnmouth Boathouse literally has everything on its doorstep from a fabulous deli and restaurants to its own train station if you wish to venture further afield. However, even if you just feel like enjoying the seclusion of this Retreat, its impressive sea views from the floor to ceiling living room windows will not disappoint. Available: August 20-27 (£890)


  1. The Lodge@Shirewater, Embleton: sleeps 2

The Lodge is a peaceful haven for a couple looking to relax, take strolls around the extensive grounds or wander down to the white sands of Embleton Bay. Its interior is no less spacious and summer nights couldn’t be more blissful here than spending them outside on the decked area enjoying some freshly cooked produce from the garden and greenhouse, which is complimentary for guests.

Available: various August dates (£1060)

 The Old Paper Mill

  1. The Old Paper Mill, County Durham: sleeps 2

A rural Retreat with two cities under half an hour away, The Old Paper Mill seamlessly marries relaxation from its hideaway base with all the entertainment of what Newcastle and Durham have to offer. If you’d rather just get away from it all, there are numerous walks from the door of this 250-year-old renovated stone mill for a real slice of country life. Available: August 6-13 (£675) NOW BOOKED
