Our home

Our beautiful holiday cottage was built C1860 originally as two cottages which we have joined together and restored. It is located in the village of Longhoughton in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Northumbrian heritage coast, just a few minutes from the beach and the coastal path. The cottage sleeps 8 in luxurious accomodation, 4 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. It is our second home and is used as a holiday let, so no exchange would be possible in the school holidays. The cottage has been given a 5 star rating by the English Tourist Board, see our website on the Homepage. There is a very pretty enclosed garden, with outdoor furniture and barbeque. There are also bicycles and childrens toys. If you are travelling with a baby or young children we can supply the relevant equipment. We can also consider non-simultaneous exchanges as this is our second home.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a designer and a surveyor aged 54 and 43 interested in art, architecture, history. We like to be active and enjoy tennis, horse riding, swimming and long walks. Somewhere historic or near a beach or lake would be ideal. We have never swapped homes before but would like to go to Italy. However we would also consider alternative destinations. Idealy we would like to swap during school term time, perhaps September/October 2009, Spring 2010, but we are flexible on dates throughout these periods. We may travel with our brother and sister in law, we are all non smokers.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Northumberland is a beautiful county with spectacular landscapes, miles of unspoilt sandy beaches and more castles than anywhere else in England. Longhoughton is situated near the market town of Alnwick, with its historic castle, used for the setting of the Harry Potter films. It also boasts a beautiful garden and there are many other castles and stately homes to visit nearby. There is an abundance of wildlife on our coast and boat trips will take you to the nearby Farne Islands to visit grey seals and the many seabirds. Just a few miles up the coast lies Holy Island or Lindisfarne. There is a small mainline staion at Alnmouth just 5 miles away, from here you could travel to Newcastle 20 mins or Edinburgh in Scotland 1 hour 15mins. Newcastle is a busy city, well worth a vist for shopping, art galleries restaurants bars and nightlife. The cottage is only 23 miles from the Scottish border and the market town of Berwick is a tourist destination. Hadrians wall and the remains of its Roman forts are approx 1 hour drive away.
