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.

Beautiful b and b!


Flamegirl1982, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Stayed here for an evening whilst attending a friend's wedding at Doxford Barns. The room is stunning and the hosts are so lovely. Everything had been thought of, with treats all over the room just waiting to be found; we very much appreciated the pringles and sweets when we arrived back late after the wedding! The toiletries were also much appreciated. Breakfast in bed was served at the time of our choice in the morning, which was a real treat. They even had veggie sausages and the stottie bread was divine. Richard suggested a lovely walk at Embleton Bay to clear the cobwebs-it was only about 10 mins away and we loved it. We would love to come back and stay in the haven suite with the hot tub-it is a truly beautiful and tranquil b and b. Thank you so much!

Lovely retreat for a relaxing break


LBowes80,
My husband and I have just returned from a stay at the Birdsong Cottage. As parents of three children and both with busy jobs we were looking for somewhere to escape for a night and enjoy some us time. On arrival we were given a warm welcome by Richard and shown to the Haven suite by Sandra. The room was beautiful with some lovely little touches that really made the difference. The room was equipped with a coffee machine, fridge containing water, orange juice and chocolate. Lovely fluffy dressing robes were provided and the wet room was well stocked with shower gels, shampoo and conditioner and body cream. Every little thing that you might need had been thought of. You get a choice of breakfast which is delivered to your door at your requested time - what a luxury to have breakfast in bed! We decided to go out for an evening meal in Bamburgh and Sandra kindly provided us with recommended taxi companies. Then it was straight back to the hot tub to relax under the stars. A thoroughly lovely place and one we will definitely return to.

Great stay and great hosts


AnitaBrabazon, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
We stayed here for one night while attending a wedding at Doxford Barns. This place is lovely; the room was very modern and excellently presented. Richard and Sandra are perfect hosts. There was an array of toiletries to use along with coffee and hot chocolate. There was also a small chocolate brownie each which was a nice touch, plus lots of other nibbles! We had left the car at the wedding venue with a view to walk back in the morning, but with the weather suddenly changing, Richard and Sandra very kindly offered to take us back to collect our car. Breakfast, of sausage and bacon stotties, cereal, mixed fruit, yoghurt and orange juice, was great and again nicely presented. It would have been perfect to enjoy on the terrace but it was a little cold having snowed the night before! A great stay and would recommend.

Just perfect!


sarah892017, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Thank you Sandra & Richard for a lovely stay - we could not recommend it enough! We were at a wedding at Doxford Barns and the cottage is in a great location to get to the venue. Sandra recommended a great taxi company to take us to and from the barns. Sandra & Richard are just lovely! Very welcoming and helpful, without being intrusive. We stayed in the Swallows Rest room which was really well equipped with a load of little extras! Had a great nights sleep in an extremely comfortable bed! The breakfast was fantastic - even better they bring it to you to enjoy in bed! Thank you Sandra & Richard for a great nights stay - we couldn't recommend it enough and will definitely be back!
