Northumberland is a wonderful place to visit for a self-catering holiday with your family. The northernmost county in England has a stunning coastline with long, sandy beaches, vast moorlands, rolling fields and verdant forests, and you can stay in a beautiful rural cottage with your family in the heart of it all!
These self-catering cottages in Northumberland come equipped with everything you and your family could want on a break in England. Firstly, they are well-located to suit what you need on your holiday, whether that means being close to a beach, or being within walking distance from a little village. They also have fully-equipped kitchens so that you can make the meals you like best and enjoy them in comfort with your loved ones.
For evenings in, the cottages come with flat-screen TVs and DVD players to watch a film together after a day of exploring, and some also have access to a private garden or a bubbling hot tub to soak in, to make your holiday even more special. Some are even dog-friendly, if you want to include the whole family!
Northumberland is home to the Northumberland National Park which covers around one quarter of the county’s land, so it is likely that you will take a trip here on your family self-catering holiday. Going on a long walk through the lush forests teeming with the sounds of wildlife is a great way to soak up rural life with your family, and you will love going home to your comfy and cosy cottage to relax in after a day of discovering just what Northumberland has to offer for you and your family.
The kids love beaches, and luckily for you if you decide to stay in a cottage in Northumberland, you will be spoilt for choice for day trips along the coastline to take the whole family to. The South Beach in Newbiggin is one of the most popular, with a promenade to stroll along and a sandy beach to watch the children build sand castles on, and dogs are also allowed on this beach. Another one to visit is Cocklawburn Beach, with grassy dunes, wild flowers in the summer and a mixture of sand and rock on the shoreline itself.
