Sandsedge Cottage is a coastal haven brimming with character and embraced by one of the most stunning Northumberland beaches. Taking its name from the sand dune grass, this charming barn conversion sits at the edge of a small cluster of stone cottages which have been carefully restored to maintain their period features whilst offering high quality, homely, Northumberland holiday cottage accommodation.
Inside you will find the evidence of this restoration with exposed ceiling beams and original stone work. The arched window in the lounge lets streams of natural light cascade in to illuminate the area, whilst the multi fuel stove ensures a cosy ambience is maintained. You will also find a television, DVD and CD player to keep you entertained, a fully equipped kitchen where you can perfect your culinary technique and a dining area for you to enjoy your produce.
There are three comfortable bedrooms; a twin, a double, and a bunk room suitable for children, all are tastefully decorated, complimenting the maritime setting. A spacious bathroom with a bath, separate shower cubicle toilet and wash basin serves the bedrooms.
The oil for the central heating, bed linen, towels, and electricity are included in the reasonable price of Sandsedge Cottage. To take advantage of the good weather, a BBQ and outdoor furniture are available, and there is plenty of storage for outdoor equipment in the garage and off road parking for two cars.
Sandsedge Cottage is an ideal base for exploring Northumberland and beyond. You will benefit from the best of both worlds as the cottage is in a tranquil setting but with the main roads only moments away, allowing easy access to Hadrian's Wall, the historic Berwick upon-Tweed, Kielder Water Park and all the castles and coastline in between. So for a comfortable and convenient retreat, book a stay here today.
