Ideal for a couple or small family, The Cockles is set in a pretty countryside location yet only a few minutes’ drive from the historic market town of Morpeth. Detached and set on the owners’ smallholding with horses, the property has a lovely wrap-around style decked area to maximise the sun after you have been out exploring all day. With many bridle paths straight from the door, it is also ideal if you want to walk.
The Cockles is a great base for exploring the abundance of visitor attractions within this friendly county, voted in 2018 by the Visit Britain Tourism Awards as the best county to holiday in. Morpeth itself has plenty of small restaurants, pubs and a good selection of shops, as well as a pretty riverside and a weekly market. Only a few miles from the start of the Northumberland Heritage Coast with miles of golden sandy beaches, with fabulous Druridge Bay only 8 miles to the east.
Head north and visit Alnwick Castle, 23 miles, famed for scenes shot for the Harry Potter films, or head up to Holy Island and Bamburgh with breathtaking views over the coast. Hop on a train at Morpeth and take a day trip to Edinburgh, and there is easy road access for Hadrian’s Wall (Vindolanda), 42 miles, and the Northumberland National Park. Other places to visit included Newcastle upon Tyne, 20 miles, and Kielder Water, 48 miles. Beach 8 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
