Description

Kingfisher Cottage is tucked away close to the river in this pretty, picture postcard village, popular with locals and visitors with great café’s and friendly village pubs. Everything is within walking distance in the village, so a stroll to the hillside castle, friendly village shop or one of the three good pubs in the village is a pleasure from this welcoming cosy cottage. Kingfisher Cottage is blessed with a good size lawned garden for relaxing which is unusual in this part of the village and has part castle views from some of the windows. The cosy wood burner is ideal for those cooler evenings and Kingfisher Cottage is perfect for couples or a small family of three with a generous double bed in the single room. The energetic can walk along the river to the very popular small town of Amble, only 2 miles away, with a hugely popular Sunday morning market, harbour, pod style shops, fish restaurants and marina. Cyclists are also well catered for with a convenient bike store.
Alnwick Castle is only 7½ miles away where a day can be spent at the Duchess’ water gardens and a trip into the castle (seasonal) famed for some Harry Potter scenes. The Heritage Coastline, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, stretches from here up to Holy Island, 33 miles away, where you can cross the causeway and step back into time. The coastline has miles of golden, unspoilt and often empty beaches awaiting, peppered with historic castles and friendly Northumbrian villages. Don’t forget to take a day trip south or west, taking in Hadrian’s Wall or the glorious Northumberland National Park, all easily accessible from Kingfisher Cottage. The local train station less than 4 miles and is perfect should you wish to jump on a train to Newcastle, Edinburgh or York with the trip to Edinburgh being particularly pretty along the coast.

About the local area

Warkworth is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque villages in the whole of Northumberland and not only has an excellent range of pubs, restaurants, cafes, art galleries and quality gift shops, but also a magnificent castle, located right in the middle of the village, to admire and explore.

The magnificent cross-shaped keep of Warkworth, crowning a hilltop rising steeply above the River Coquet, dominates one of the largest, strongest and most impressive fortresses in northern England. The castle's most famous owners were the Percy family, whose lion badge can be seen carved on many parts of their stronghold.

There are wonderful riverside walks alongside the pretty River Coquet which encircles the village, to watch the abundance of wildlife such as herons, foxes, migrating birds, and a vast, sandy beach with dramatic dunes and wonderful, far-reaching views up and down the Heritage Coastline.

Cyclists can enjoy an easy 18 mile day ride. The route has no major climbs and is featured in the recently published 'Sustrans Cycle Northumberland' booklet. Starting in the village, the route heads west inland on quiet lanes, and passes through Guyzance, Acklington and Broomhill. Rejoining the coast at the vast expanse of Druridge Bay and returning north via the fishing port of Amble.
