Location description from owner
The England region
The outstanding natural beauty of the Northumberland Heritage Coastline draws many visitors who appreciate the rugged coastline, the many superbly picturesque castles, the vast and sandy beaches and the stunning landscapes. The castles of Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh and Alnwick are all within a short drive from Anchor Cottage, and the holy island of Lindisfarne is on the same stretch of spectacular coastline. Northumberland has more than 150 attractions to visit, ranging from castles and historic sites including Hadrian's Wall, stately homes and gardens, museums, and plenty of beautiful towns and villages to visit along the coast and in the countryside.The village of Cresswell in particular has spectacular scenery and a beautiful 7 mile long golden sandy beach, stretching from Cresswell in the south to the pretty fishing port of Amble in the north. Here in Northumberland the vast, unspoilt beaches are undoubtedly some of the cleanest and finest in the UK.
Cresswell village marks the beginning of a magnificent seven mile golden sandy beach stretching from Cresswell in the south to the picturesque fishing port of Amble in the north. Cresswell is a pretty little coastal Northumberland village, popular with bird watchers, walkers and nature-lovers attracted to the vast golden sandy beach. Situated at the southerly tip of Druridge Bay, it's peaceful yet within easy reach of all the attractions of Northumberland. Just 5 minutes walk along the beach from Anchor Cottage, there is an excellent cafe hidden behind the dunes, which offers a mouthwatering selection of cakes and scones, as well as hot and cold meals, including a superb full English breakfast. The National Trust owned Druridge Bay Country Park is just under 3 miles north of Cresswell and is a nature lover's paradise. It's wonderful to be able to enjoy the lake and the wildlife upon it, then walk just a couple of hundred yards through the dunes to the biggest beach in Northumberland, which is a magnet for walkers, bird-watchers, windsurfers and kayakers. There is also a nature reserve at 'Cresswell Pond', which has a superbly positioned hide popular with bird enthuasiasts for its rare bird sightings and for watching all the regular species of local and migratory birds. Cresswell also has a fascinating history; it has a beautiful church, and is home to architectural remains stretching back 6000 years, although the most obvious is the ruin of the medieval Pele Tower directly opposite Anchor Cottage. The village hall is the former lifeboat station, and Anchor Cottage itself has been home to generations of lifeboatmen's families.The spectacular sunsets on the beach are breath-taking, and the Aurora Borealis has even been seen on many occasions from Cresswell. If you were fortunate enough to witness it, the cottage's bench on the 'Bank Top' - (the water's edge behind the cottage) would be the perfect place to view it from. Meanwhile, for those who might hanker after the city after a few days on the coast, Edinburgh is a feasible day-trip by car or by train, and the buzzing city of Newcastle with its shopping, its thriving cultural and arts scene and its legendary nightlife is amazingly only a 30 minute drive to the south.

“Superb Cottage in a stunning location”
It would be so easy just to stay in the comfort of lovely Anchor Cottage and just soak in the views from the window or the sea front bench but it is also a great base for fantastic attractions within easy reach for a day out. We did both and loved it.
