Overview


Birdsong Cottage is a two bedroomed, finely furnished bed and breakfast. The name Birdsong will become apparent the moment you arrive, the birds are keen to be heard.

With fantastic access to the A1, a vista that will astound and a wonderfully furnished set of rooms Birdsong is an ideal retreat that provides a base for one to explore this historical region.

A traditional Northumbrian cottage in every sense. Run by Richard &  Sandra Beesley, you can expect a warm welcome to the cottage and an excellent breakfast in the morning!

At Birdsong Cottage we aim to make all our guests feel truly welcome and at home and are sure that they will enjoy a relaxing and memorable stay in this beautiful area of Northumberland.

With attractions such as the Alnwick Garden, Alnwick Castle and the stunning Northumberland Coast all close by, you can be sure of finding something to suit.

As a county, Northumberland has more strong houses and castles than anyother in England. But worry not, the county’s warring is long past! With such a variety of things to see, it’s no wonder Northumberland is dubbed “the secret kingdom”.

This affectionate title becomes apparent when simply taking in the view from Birdsong Cottage where one can see the magnificent Dunstanburgh Castle.A short drive to the south leads into Alnwick , Northumberland’s traditional county town and the seat of The Duke of Northumberland. With it’s imposing castle and the magnificent Alnwick Gardens along with a myriad of traditional shops, Alnwick (only 10 minutes drive from Birdsong) is well worth a visit.

Across to the east the dramatic vistas offered by the North Sea provide a unique and awe-inspiring site. The aforementioned Bamburgh Castle, once the seat of ecclesiastical power in Britain provides a good day out. Within a 15 miles radius of Bamburgh lie both Lindisfarne, accessible only by a causeway and also the world famous Farne Islands, home to a colony of more than 80,000 puffins during the summer months.

We can’t forget the Cheviot Hills that sit to the west of Birdsong cottage, part of the Northumberland National Park, the Cheviots provide a vast array of walks to suit all abilities.

Whatever your interests, with Newcastle a 40 minute drive and Edinburgh just over an hour away, you can be sure that Birdsong is an ideal base.

 

Accommodation

 

Haven suite 

Do you ever have the feeling you are looking for something – an “elusive something” perhaps something that feels like a “stolen treat” or just to cushion yourself from the world & wrap yourself in luxury for a day or two ? 

I think we all do don’t we?

From the luxurious  down duvet and pillows to the Coffee Connoisseur nespresso dream machine – Mmm – pure indulgence.

Throw in a gorgeous ensuite wet room,  Smart TV,  your own private Balcony & Hot Tub & we think we have the recipe just right for a little bit of self indulgence! So, if the wind just kind of pushes you this way – we would love to see you.

Complimentary breakfast is served to your room with a choice of Traditional Northumbrian Stottie stuffed with local sausage or bacon or you may prefer a selection of warm pastries & preserves.

With very low light pollution, the Haven balcony offers stunning dark sky views and if lucky an opportunity to see the Northern Lights.  

  

Swallows Rest

Complete with a 40 inch flat screen TV, spacious ensuite shower room and sumptuous king-sized bed which makes for an amazingly comfortable night. 

Swallow’s Rest offers a private patio accessed from the room where you can sit and enjoy the evening sunshine listening to the birds sing.

Peaceful and smells AMAZING


rachelaynsley, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Tucked away and hidden from the A1 we found the gorgeous Haven room at the B&B the perfect escape from everyday life. Lots of little hidden charms in the room itself, and the whole place smelt amazing. Lovely bathroom, great black out blinds and very comfy bed. Then there’s outside, we were expecting to be on first floor, especially when we knew about the hot tub. What a treat it was when we found out and the view from balcony and hot tub were stunning looking out over the garden and fields. We opted for sausage stotties (!!!) and they were delivered promptly as promised and were the perfect end to our stay....well not quite the end as it would be rude not to have another dip in the hot tub. Perfect night away for us. Thank you!

Everthing is thought of.


Martin Y, Orpington, United Kingdom
We had two nights here last weekend and it was fantastic, Richard and Sandra have thought of everything, looking in the drawer for the hair dryer my wife found the plaster, sun cream, and other essential things you never really think of. Bowl with sweets and crisps on the side with a bar of chocolate in the fridge. Recommended several local restuarants, gave us cab numbers if we needed them and information on the locality and places to go. Local information in the room. They have just covered everything and made us extremely welcome.

Amazing Jewel in the North East


Randen28, Bedlington, United Kingdom
Met by our very friendly hosts Richard and Sandra. Secret jewel for us now. Quiet location. Bed was great, hot tub great, so many little personal touches. The "cookie" jar, well, I munched it all (wife had no idea it was there....shhh!) Breakfast-big wow, very taste. Best stotties we have had in a long time. Internet speed was very good.

Perfect birthday treat


gailkennedy19, Blyth, United Kingdom
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. My husband booked the Haven suite to celebrate my birthday, everything was perfect. Lovely friendly welcome. The room was by far the best room I have stayed in and the hot tub was fabulous. Home from home - lots of lovely little treats left in the room - just making the stay that more special. Perfect surroundings - so peaceful and so relaxing. Breakfast was lovely and served to our room at a time of our choice. This place is a hidden gem and I would highly recommend it to anyone. We will definitely be back. Thank you �
