Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Located only 2.5 miles from the busy fishing port of Amble, known locally as the ‘friendliest port', with all its amenities and regular boat trips off the harbour, is Railway Cottage. This is situated by a former railway line and would serve as an excellent base from which to explore the scenic splendour of the Northumberland coast and inland to the national park and beyond. The cottage has been newly refurbished and now represents excellent holiday accommodation. The ground floor open plan arrangement makes for easy living and a strong sense of space and light. The bathroom is generously proportioned and an ideal space for relaxing after a hard but enjoyable day spent sight-seeing. The property has a rural aspect with open countryside to its western elevation and a distant sea view from the first floor double bedroom.

Northern England region
The northerly county of Northumberland is a hidden gem of totally unspoilt countryside and wonderful long stretches of pristine sandy beaches. If you want to stretch your legs and breathe in clean country air this is the place for you, with miles of wide open spaces and magnificent views. The county has three distinct sub regions; a coastline stretching some forty miles with quiet sandy beaches and pretty coastal harbour villages. Inland visitors will find dramatic rolling moorland and forests, much of which is National Park and to the south of the region is the famous Hadrian's Wall which runs coast to coast and is now a World Heritage Site. Apart from Northumberland's natural assets the county is steeped in history and has had a turbulent past which is characterised by more than its fair share of castles and ancient hill forts, some of which were built to repel Viking invaders. It was also the scene of the border wars and conflicts between the English and Scots in the 14th-16th century.
Togston Barns is a friendly little hamlet nestled close to the neighbouring settlement of North Broomhill and located only 6 miles from Druridge Bay; the jewel in the crown of Northumberland's coastal Area of Outstanding Natural beauty and the location for a Nature Sanctuary and visitor centre. A wide range of water sports are available on the nearby Ladyburn Lake. The huge expanse of golden sand is just perfect for families and young children will love exploring the high dunes. A short journey up the coast will bring visitors to the dramatic castle fortresses of Warkworth and Dunstanburgh and inland lies the medieval market town of Alnwick, also home to a majestic castle and recently voted the best place to live in Britain. Alnwick Castle is probably better known as the location for Hogwarts in the first Harry Potter film. Further to the west lies the scenic splendour of the Northumberland National Park., the delightful market town of Rothbury and the National Trust property at Cragside- the first property ever to be powered by electricity.
