Westnewton Estate Cottage is a comfortable, well appointed home from home, offering an opportunity to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing holiday in the Northumberland National Park or, indeed an action packed holiday! Your choice. A traditional Northumbrian stone built cottage accommodating four guests in a double room on the first floor and a twin room on the ground floor. Each room has separate facilites making this an ideal choice for two couples to share. A shower room on the ground floor and a large bathroom on the first floor ensures no queing or long treks in the middle of the night!!
If your holiday is incomplete without your dog he/she is welcome to accompany you. There is an enclosed garden to keep your pet safe and lots of walks around this beautiful, private country estate for you all to enjoy. A short drive takes you to the Northumbrian coast where there are no dog restrictions on the beaches. The gorgeous long, golden sands of Bamburgh await.If cycling's your hobby we have secure bike storage and quiet routes to take around this beautiful area.
You can explore the Cheviot Hills from your front door - take a day's trip into the hills or a shorter stroll around the Estate.If you feel like a day at home enjoy the garden by day and the log fire by night. Watch the night sky in the midst of Europe's largest Dark Sky Park. Maybe you'd prefer to explore the Northumbrian coastline or visit the castles of the Scottish Borders a short drive away. Follow in the footsteps of Robson Green or call in on Harry Potter at Alnwick Castle. For quiet contemplation spend a day on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne or, nearer to home, sit in the tranquil ancient church of St Gregory the Great at Kirknewton.
Take a trip into the Scottish Borders and visit the famous Border Abbeys of Kelso, Dryburgh and Melrose all within an hour's drive. Or continue north up the coast to the St Abbs Nature Reserve, surf at Coldingham Bay and drop in for fish & chips in Eyemouth on the way home.
The coast to the south offers craggy walks around Dunstanburgh and Craster where you can sample the famous kippers. The Farne Islands beckon with their colourful, photogenic Puffins best seen via one of Billy Shiel's boat trips from Seahouses. Call in at the Ship Inn for a refreshing drink and yummy meal on your return. If you prefer your feet on dry land don't miss a trip to Low Newton with its micro brewery and atmospheric pub.
An outing to Berwick upon Tweed is a must. Walk the historic town walls and look out over the Tweed estuary to the Farnes and Holy Island. Visit the Maltings Theatre - scene of the premier of The Railway Man attended by Colin Firth who played the part of Eric Lomax, a late, wonderful Berwick man. Drop into the Town House and view the ancient jail, you might get to ring the bells as well.
For children a day at Pot-a-Doodle-Do is not to be missed where young potters are encouraged to make their own special souvenir. A short distance from "Doodle" is Paxton House, a gorgeous Adam property with well known picture gallery, walks in the grounds on the banks of the River Tweed. Finish off with tea and scrummy cake in the Stables Tea Room.
Just a few of the many delights to be savoured while at Westnewton. We would love to welcome you to Westnewton Estate Cottage and share the joys of this fabulous part of Northumberland with you.

"A real treasure"
We booked this at short notice, and it was done very efficiently. We arrived on a wet stormy night, and found we could light a fire, in a cosy little sitting room, and pull the comfy sofas round.… More
