Peaceful, welcoming, a home from home, are the most frequent comments from guests to our three self-catering cottages. Situated adjacent to our 19th century rural inn, our cottages are ideally placed to enable you to explore beautiful Northumberland, with its many castles, country houses and miles of sandy beaches.
The inn itself is set in two and a half acres of grounds, just three miles from Druridge Bay, renowned for its extensive golden sands and Country Park. We are only 3 miles from the picturesque village of Warkworth,with it's dramatic castle and nine miles from Alnwick with it's castle and gardens.
There is a newsagent three miles down the road, with supermarket shopping available in Amble and Alnwick. Of course you are yards from our pub, where we serve meals seven days a week, if you would like a break from cooking after a day's sightseeing. There is ample parking outside the cottages.
Pets are welcome.
All on ground floor level All bedrooms with en suite shower room Rose Cottage - One double bedroom / single bed settee Stable Cottage - One bedroom with king size four-poster bed. Dove Cottage - Two bedrooms, one twin, one double.
The inn started off as a two up, two down farmhouse in the mid 1800s and then the enterprising farmer decided to add some more rooms and take in guests. It actually became a “hotel” in the 1890s with landlords staying for many years before moving on. From 1923 to 1954 The Webb brothers ran the pub, one of the brothers training racehorses on the site. Photographs of some of his winners can be seen on the lounge walls of the pub today. Before, during and after the second world war there was an R.A.F site two miles up the road and many of the officers, including Princess Margaret’s first love, Peter Townsend, visited the pub regularly. In fact, there is a Townsend Court in Acklington village. We have photographs of the R.A.F. camp on the walls of the pub.
Cottages can be booked through Sykes Cottages on
