Nestled at the end of a small terrace of three others, Mains Cottage offers stylishly furnished self-catering holiday accommodation. Situated on an 800-acre working arable and sheep farm, and adjacent to the owner’s home, it is within easy reach of the welcoming village of Belford where there are local facilities available including a small supermarket, three pubs and a café. The entrance to the cottage leads into a fresh and contemporary shower room and a well-designed kitchen/dining room. One step up and the rest of the layout is on one level. The master bedroom has the convenience of an en-suite shower room. There is a good-sized living room with lovely views across the fields to the rear, and a twin bedroom too. Giving an ambience of peace and tranquillity across open farmland, this is an idyllic spot to dine al fresco (barbecue supplied) and watch the sun go down.
Heading 10 miles west, you will reach the small town of Wooler, which snuggles at the foot of the Cheviot Hills, ideal for various challenging walking and cycling routes including the ‘St Cuthbert’s Way’, which runs close by. Travelling 6 miles west, you will discover the picture perfect coastal village of Bamburgh, renowned for its fantastic fortress and glorious expanse of golden, sandy sweeping beach. The larger towns of Berwick-upon-Tweed, to the north, and Alnwick, to the south, are equidistant at 15 miles away. Both towns offer a wider range of amenities. Alnwick Castle and Garden are also well worth a visit. Beach 4½ miles. Catch the train from Berwick up to Edinburgh Waverley to enjoy a trip to this vibrant city. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
Mains Cottage can be booked together with adjacent Moor View (CC313050) and Curlew Cottage (UK3012) to accommodate up to 13 guests.

About the local area

The idyllic country village of Bamburgh, ancient royal seat of the kings of Northumbria, is set in one of the most breathtakingly picturesque coastal regions in the UK. With trips to the Farne Island Group so close at hand from nearby Seahouses, Bamburgh is certainly one of the most sough after coastal destinations on the Northumberland coast.

The main attraction in Bamburgh is of course Bamburgh Castle, one of Northumberland's most iconic buildings. Spanning nine acres of land on its rocky plateau high above the Northumberland coastline Bamburgh it is one of the largest inhabited castles in the country and has won awards in the North East Large Visitor Attraction Awards and the Green Business Scheme. To prove its universal appeal, the castle was recently a finalist in TV's Britain's Favorite View competition.

A visit to this area is not complete without a trip to Lindisfarne (Holy Island), a tidal island which can only be accessed across the causeway when the tidal conditions allow. Holy Island has a national reputation as a wildlife haven and is home to a national nature reserve. As well as numerous rare birds, you may even spot the grey seal that are resident on the nearby Farne Islands all year round.

Dramatically perched on a rocky crag is Lindisfarne Castle is a small fortress first built in 1550 and today is looked after by the National Trust. Accessible over the causeway is at low tide only, and the island castle presents an exciting and alluring aspect.
