Sunflower Cottage Ref 1326
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
This lovely stone cottage with views of the open countryside is located on the edge of Eglingham. Renovated to a remarkably high standard, the décor of the house skilfully combines old-world charm with modern practicality and can be enjoyed throughout the year. Whether you fancy a summer break by the sea, or a Christmas Eve snuggled up by the pillar box-red AGA this lovely house can accommodate. The spacious living room offers an open fire, and for days when the weather isn't at its best, there's a colour TV with video and DVD player. With a lovely, well-maintained garden, perfect for picnics beneath the apple trees, this cottage is a great place to bring the family.

Northern England region
Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian’s Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.
Comprised of neat stone houses with well-kept gardens, a Victorian church, large pub and traditional restaurant, the village is a wonderful setting to try living life at a more leisurely pace. For those wanting to escape the hustle-and-bustle of the city, the surrounding hills and valleys offer fascinating walks through this vibrant countryside. Birdwatchers will enjoy trips to the Farne Islands which are rich with wildlife, though you don't have to go far to spot some interesting birds as closer to home, herons have been sighted in the Eglingham burn. For those who like history, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne is very close by, as are the castles of Warkworth, Chillingham, Alnwick and Dunstanburgh.

"So good, we're going back!"
Sunflower cottage is a true home from home. Comfortable, spacious and (once we'd worked out the Raeburn) cosy. Eglingham is wonderful and a great base from which to explore all Northumberland has… More

The cottage was up to our expectations in all but one item. The toilets took too long to flush after use, even though there were two. Both took up to 1/4 hour to be ready for the next person.We were… More
