Northumberland is a picturesque county well known throughout the UK for its stunning range of luxury accommodation, including log cabins, cottages and apartments. With many holiday homes offering amazing amenities such as wood burners, complimentary Wi-Fi and swimming pools, in which to make visitors’ experiences as comfortable as possible, there’s nowhere better to spend a week or two.
Perfect at any time of the day or night, having a refreshing indoor swimming pool in your holiday home is an obvious advantage. Beneficial for health as it is for enjoyment, it’s the ideal preparation for a day action packed full of adventures, such as visiting the picture-perfect countryside at Northumberland National Park or even just to relax, unwind and de-stress afterwards. A cottage with its own swimming pool is a great idea for a Christmas - New Year break; healthy walks, a bit of snow and lovely warm fun in the pool with the family.
Your swimming pool is not the only facility that can be enjoyed in your charming Northumbrian cottage. Depending on the cottage chosen, guests can also make the most of a private, spacious garden that is not just great for playing an array of sports amongst the tall, evergreen trees, but also in which to house a roaring BBQ and sit back with a chilled glass of wine or two on the outdoor patio. Away from the lush, green grass, panoramic countryside views and colourful sunsets, visitors are also given the opportunity to take advantage of the open plan living room. With a Smart TV and DVD player, top of the range music entertainment system and fully stocked bookcase, this is a place where you can really make the most of your Northumbrian night in! Alternatively, you can re-connect with friends and family over a fun-filled board game on the large oak dining table. The choice after all is yours!
After a peaceful night’s sleep in the cottage’s choice of well-lit bedrooms and a salutary morning swim, you will be ready to refuel yourself for a day out to prestigious landmarks like Hadrian’s Wall, Alnwick Castle and Gardens and the Angel of the North. Just as well then that your well-equipped kitchen is on hand to provide you with your favourite meals throughout the day. Offering a plethora of pots, pans and modern appliances, this modern-style room is known for being a hub of activity, especially with budding Chefs.
As soon as you walk through the front door into your Northumbrian holiday cottage, you’ll feel like you are a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life. This is only heightened from the impressive and traditional interior décor within the history-steeped four walls and the stunning outdoor features. Offering ample space in which to cater for large families as much as well-sized groups of friends, this is a home that can adapt to whatever taste or need, which is partly why being self-catered is such an advantage in these kinds of situations.
Northumberland is one of the most popular holiday places in the UK currently and with impressive features like swimming pools and hot tubs being installed in many properties, it’s a place that is most certainly on the up and up. So, get your bags packed and follow the Northumbrian trend!
