Overview

This pretty Northumbrian cottage has been reinvented with a sophisticated new look, with plenty of space for couples or families to spread out and relax after a day of coastal exploring.

A perfect base mid-way between Alnwick and the golden sands of Alnmouth

Sitting in the heart of the pretty village of Lesbury with a village pub on the doorstep, this three bedroom property has plenty to offer those seeking a charming, coastal base.

The ground floor benefits from two reception rooms with lovely original features, including characterful inglenook fireplaces, ledge and brace doors, and oak beams. This is enhanced by soft natural tones and warm textures in heritage leather and tweed which give the cottage a sophisticated but understated elegance.

The kitchen benefits from the warming heart of an AGA, granite work surfaces and integrated appliances in a modern shaker style. This leads into a utility room and a private rear courtyard which is perfect for outdoor dining when the temperature starts to rise.

The harmonious scheme continues upstairs with two en-suite bedrooms, one with a super-impressive bathroom, and a separate double bedroom which offers a perfectly framed view of the village bowling green. All beds are finished with the finest duck down duvets when winding down and restful sleep sounds like a good plan.

Location

Sitting in the picturesque hamlet of Lesbury, there is a village shop for essential provisions, and a gentle five minute stroll from the property will take guests to the charming Coach Inn for good hearty food and real ales in warm, ambient surroundings.

The property is incredibly well placed, sitting just off the main A1 which runs right through the Northumberland coast. The nearby railway station at Alnmouth (0.5 miles) links to the main East Coast rail line, providing easy access from Edinburgh and the North, or from Newcastle and beyond from the South. Pick-ups can be arranged from the train station if required.

Guests will find a more extensive range of amenities in the coastal villages of Alnmouth (1.5 miles) and Warkworth (4.3 miles) which have plenty of restaurants, galleries, pubs, coffee shops and gift shops to choose from, all set amidst stunning surroundings.

Alternatively, a little further inland you will find an excellent range of amenities in nearby Alnwick (4 miles), home to the fantastic Alnwick Castle and Gardens and an eclectic mix of charming specialist shops where you can wander the cobbled streets and gift shops around the marketplace, or stop-off at one of the many quaint cafes across the area for a decadent cake and freshly roasted coffee.
