When the draw of sea, sand and big sky views come calling, the location of Beachcomber Cottage will be the star attraction.
Enjoy relaxed beach living and glorious coastal views
Sitting on the glorious golden sands of Goswick, this is a place where you can avoid the crowds and enjoy relaxed beach living with plenty of warming touches when the weather draws in.
Life here moves at a calm and gentle pace with little to interrupt the day. Here your very own sandy adventure playground is just a stone’s throw away where you can enjoy unhurried days with breakfast on the beach watching soaring kite surfers, or wander never-ending sands until the sun goes down.
Sitting at the end of a no-through road, the cottage has been decorated in a fresh, nautical style with a characterful beamed sitting room with sofa bed which can accommodate an extra 2 guests, and a homely dining kitchen where you can throw another log in the wood burner and relax in cosy, coastal comfort.
Originally built to avoid the prevailing coastal winds, there are no immediate views to the beach from the ground floor aspect of the property, however it benefits from expansive views towards the Cheviot Hills and Pennines. Large Velux windows to the upper floor bedrooms are positioned to take advantage of the coastal views.
Access porch with table and two chairs.
Dining kitchen with electric cooker, fridge freezer, microwave, washing machine, Nespresso Krups coffee machine. Please note there is no dishwasher. Dining space with seating for six. Wood burning stove with an initial supply of logs.
Sitting room with two large double sofas with electric living flame fire. Technology includes a flat screen TV with Freeview, Blu-ray DVD, sound system and radio/Bluetooth speaker. Selection of books, games and DVDs. One sofa can convert into a double sofa bed - this is available for use with a charge of £20.
Family bathroom with bath, separate power shower, heated towel rail, basin and WC.
Bedroom one with 6’ superking bed, side tables, chest of drawers, and hanging space. A large Velux window offers views of the beach (with blackout blind for undisturbed sleep).
Bedroom two with 3’ twin beds, side table, and chest of drawers. A large Velux window offers views of the beach (with blackout blind for undisturbed sleep).
Outside - Important
There is no enclosed garden space at the property. There is a grassed area to the front and rear of the property leading down to the beach which is approximately a minute walk from the cottage. There is garden furniture and bench seating but please note that a barbecue is not provided. The cottage is surrounded by farmland and the access road is in use by farm vehicles.
Please note that Goswick beach was a former munitions site during the second world war and while the hazard posed to the general public is considered to be extremely low, there are warning signs in place on the beach alerting the public to the potential dangers should any metal or unidentified objects be found.

A travel cot and Tripp Trapp chair are available on request. Children should be supervised in the area outside the cottage.
Two well-behaved dogs are permitted but should be kept to the porch and kitchen area of the property only. They are not permitted in the sitting room and bedrooms.
