Description

As the crow flies, this pretty deceptively spacious cottage is under 2 miles from the coast, making it a superb base for friends and families to explore this fabulous region. Otadini Cottage is one of a small row of traditional terraced cottages in the village of Fenwick, but this cottage is anything but traditional as it has marble tiled flooring, with all principal living and sleeping areas having the benefit of electric radiators including the stylish second sitting room on the first floor. All downstairs marble tiled areas have electric underfloor heating, including the shower room. The bedrooms have antique French beds and high quality bed linen, and even glimpses of the sea towards Holy Island from the landing and second sitting room.
Cross the tidal causeway to Holy Island at low tide, or discover the fishing villages along the coast. Holy Island can be reached on foot, following St Cuthbert’s Way from Fenwick, and is approximately 6 miles. Nearby Lowick has two good pubs and local shop, with other choices also close by at Beal. Berwick upon Tweed, 10 miles away to the north, has a range of hostelries, galleries, supermarkets and an excellent small theatre along with historic Elizabethan walls. There are boat trips to the Farne Islands from Seahouses, a quiet sandy beach at Goswick, wonderful gardens with grand houses and castles at Paxton, Alnwick and Bamburgh and Edinburgh and Newcastle are under an hour by train.
For cyclists, your bikes can be stored in the garage. There are beaches within 8 miles by car, or Ross Sands can be reached by a 5 mile car journey, followed by a walk of around 1 mile over farmland and dunes. Shops 2½ miles, pubs and restaurants 2 miles away, and within easy reach by car and bicycle.

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.
