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

The perfect place to stay


Lauren F, Leeds, United Kingdom
Me and my boyfriend stayed at the birdsong cottage for a mid week break and we couldn’t have asked for anything else. The cottage it’s self is stunning, the room was perfectly clean, the owners showed us all the facilities; mini fridge, coffee machine, hot tub etc. It had so many cute little additional extras; all the coffee flavours you could imagine, drinks and snacks in the fridge, little brownies, straighteners, books and maps of the area, they really go the extra mile. The hot tub was amazing and the bed was SO comfy! We had a lovely view of the sunrise too through the big window in the room. The breakfast was one of the best sandwiches we’ve had! The owners were so lovely and welcoming making sure we had everything we needed, making suggestions of where to eat, giving us alternative routes if there was traffic, waving us off when we left, it’s definitely these little things that make somewhere stand out from others like this one, not to mention for a great price too. Thank you to the owners again for a lovely stay, we will definitely be back 😊

Visit for our minimoon


Rspokes, South Shields, United Kingdom
We can not thank Sandra and Richard enough for having us to stay at there beautiful cottage! We came for a relaxing one night stay after the night of our wedding and we had the most amazing time, we were welcomed with open arms and smiling faces, we were shown to the haven room which was stunning and has the most beautiful decor,it is located in such a fabulous place only 10 minutes to alnwick! We were given a selection of breakfast item's and a choice of time in which it would be delivered to our room in the morning (which was such a treat to have breakfast in bed) we would honestly give more than 5 stars if we could and we will 100% be back for our anniversary, we already can't wait to relax in the hot tub under the stars again Thank you to you both x

Fantastic Short Break


David G,
My wife and i had a 3 night break this week, and was greeted upon arrival by Richard and Sandra who were great hosts, we stayed in the Haven with the hot tub, the room was brilliant with nice little touches to make our stay very comfortable, good quality coffees and tea were available throughout, also the bacon stottie and pastries or fruit for breakfast were very tastie, towels were changed every day as well as the nibbles that were available for our use. Would definitely stay again if visiting Northumberland, Richard also gave us his advice about local attractions, nothing was too much trouble.Highly recommended.

Heaven in Haven


70MickP2018, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
We stayed in the Haven suite in Birdsong Cottage and we felt at home from the moment we arrived. Richard and Sandra made us very welcome on arrival and showed us up the suite. The room was more than comfortable with lots of personal touches with a lovely large shower room. One of best features was the hot tub on the private balcony, which gave great views of the night sky, breathtaking. A great breakfast was served in our room. Richard was even there to wave us off when we left.

Excellent standards


JebandCw,
My partner and I stayed here for one night on our way to Scotland. It was a last minute booking and the owners were very helpful in making sure we received the information we needed to find the B and B which was extremely well situated just off the A1 but also very peaceful. The B and B was extremely well furnished with a king-size comfortable bed and high quality duvet, pillows and bedding. The bathroom was large with an excellent shower. We received a very warm welcome from our hosts and helpful information about places to eat locally. Breakfast was very enjoyable and served in our room which set us up nicely for our long journey ahead. We would definitely recommend and stay again.
