Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Close to the edge of the meandering River Coquet as it journeys through the delightful village of Warkworth is the admirably named Riverwalk Cottage. Nestled down a tranquil lane close to the hub of the village this lovely, good-sized traditional, stone cottage simply exudes an atmosphere of homely comfort and well-being. The cottage has three beautifully presented bedrooms and a fresh, contemporary family bathroom complete with separate shower and Jacuzzi bath. The property has the practical benefit of an enclosed patio area where children and pets can be contained in safety. Internet access via Wi-Fi is provided and free off-road parking available close by at the riverside. Warkworth has a good range of amenities including several food and drink outlets, interesting shops and galleries and a dramatic castle which is managed by English Heritage. In addition to the relaxing riverside walks, visitors are but a short walk from the pristine sands of Warkworth Beach. Riverwalk Cottage is not only a sublime holiday property in its own right but a truly excellent base for exploring wider Northumberland.

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.
The coastline to the north and south of Warkworth forms part of the officially designated North Northumberland Heritage Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which extends to approximately twenty miles. To the south for example, lies the absolutely stunning Druridge Bay- commonly regarded as being in the top ten of the UK's most beautiful beaches- and a definite for the ‘must visit' list. Children will love playing in the high dunes and when batteries need recharging there is an excellent café facility in the nearby Druridge Bay Country Park. To the north visitors are simply spoilt for choice in terms of stunning beaches. Beadnell Bay offers approximately one mile of gorgeous sands and is a poplar centre for water sports with equipment hire and professional instruction available locally. Five miles further north is the picture-postcard village of Bamburgh with its magnificent stretch of heritage coastline and majestic castle. Highly recommended for a day out is the delightful market town of Alnwick. This dates back to medieval times and is home to several excellent visitor attractions such as the awe inspiring Alnwick Castle and the award winning Alnwick garden. The latter has the largest tree-house in Europe, numerous woodland walks, an amazing selection of interesting plants and several highly regarded food and drink areas.
