The Bothy is the quintessential coastal retreat for couples!
Nestled at the end of a small and peaceful terrace and facing across open farmland towards the sea beyond, The Bothy is a listed building recently fully renovated to provide an excellent pied-a-terre. Snuggled in front of the wood burning stove after a romantic stroll along the glorious expanse of golden beach at Cheswick Sands, being a mere gentle walk from The Bothy.

About the local area

The hamlet of Cheswick is located on the extreme north east coast of Northumberland; this highly desirable destination is simply stunning. The tiny hamlet of Goswick, with its own magnificent seashore has a golf course a mile away and riding stables at the end of the no through road where a wander along the beach with a splash through the tide can be a wonderful experience. From the beach there is direct access to walk to the mainland side of the causeway (around 3 miles), which leads onto the tidal island of Lindisfarne, often known as Holy Island and the birth place of Christianity - it is swept by the North Sea but safe to cross twice daily via a metalled causeway.
The elegant Georgian town of Berwick - straddled by its salmon rich river Tweed - offers many amenities only 8 miles north and the picture postcard village of Bamburgh, dominated by its majestic castle is 13 miles south making The Bothy a delightful coastal base to explore both north Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.
The Bothy offers an idyllic and tranquil hide away for couples and will appeal to those seeking stylish accommodation in a beautiful rural setting yet giving guests an easy opportunity to indulge in the simple pleasure of strolling barefoot in the sand, inhale the invigorating sea air and watch the waves lap against the shoreline of this quiet and stunning stretch of north Northumbrian coastline

What our customers say about The Bothy

Victoria Crosbie -

Its got a clean modern look to it without losing its charm and rustic appeal.

K Farley -

Excellent cottage , very quiet, just what we wanted

C Sheasby -

The property was only small but was very well laid out. Clearly someone had given thought as to the best use of the space. The decorations and furniture were in keeping with the age and character of the property. The garden was well designed to be maintenance free and provided a usable area for eating outside.

M Mosses -

My partner and myself had a wonderful week over New Year, celebrating 2011/12. The cottage was just beautiful. Thank You

Well situated for the beautiful local beaches.
