Northumberland is renowned for its breathtaking World Heritage Sites and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the imposing Cheviot Hills to the west and the mysterious Holy Island of Lindisfarne to the east. Original Cottages is proud to offer visitors to Northumberland an exceptional choice of holiday properties ranging from cosy cottages for couples to larger holiday homes suitable for the whole family. Many of our properties are also dog-friendly, meaning that you and your pet can both enjoy Northumberland and its stunning views.
With 30 miles of golden sandy beaches and rugged coastal paths, Northumberland has also garnered an impressive reputation as a highly desirable coastal holiday spot. Seahouses for example, is a bustling fishing village and one of the region's best holiday destinations. Our properties boast easy access to the region’s beaches, with special cottages that include extras such as hot tubs, sea views and wood burners for cosy nights in.
In contrast to its impressive coastline, Northumberland is also home to some of the most unspoilt landscapes in England. The North Pennies are home to rolling hills, cascading waterfalls and acres of picturesque heather moors. Cottages in this region offer the combined benefits of a remote holiday home away from it all, with simple access to welcoming towns and villages with inviting local pubs and restaurants.
Original Cottages offers a truly customer-focused and friendly service and is proud of its history as a family business. Our local offices continue in this tradition and provide the expert local knowledge that allow Original Cottages to help you and your family to enjoy the perfect holiday experience.
