Summer Cottage is set just on the outskirts of the village of Warkworth in a quiet spot next to the owner’s home, set in a lovely large garden with a private sitting-out area to the rear. This semi-detached house is a lovely base for couples or a small family who want to be within walking distance of the village, ⅓ mile, but in a quiet spot with ample parking and no hustle and bustle. The village is dominated by the castle, which sits at the head of the village overlooking the street. The pubs are friendly and serve good food, and the cafés are popular with the locals too. There are also a couple of bespoke shops and a village post office and store. Make sure you visit The Hermitage, which was featured in local author L.J. Ross’ novel.
Nearby is the village of Amble, 2 miles along the estuary road, where you will find boat trips to Coquet Island, plenty of fish and chip shops, pubs, cafés, shops, beach huts and a superb Sunday morning market. Warkworth Estuary is the start of the Northumbrian Heritage Coastline, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty stretching along the coastline to Berwick-upon-Tweed, with miles of golden beaches and castles. Holy Island is also a best seller, but check the tide tables to access the causeway. It is just a few minutes’ drive to Alnwick where the Duke of Northumberland resides in the famous castle, and you can explore the castle which was used for some of the Harry Potter and Downton Abbey scenes.
Northumberland does not just have a spectacular coast, it also has a stunning Gold Tier International Dark Sky Park, famed for its dark skies and well worth a day trip. Hadrian’s Wall towards Corbridge makes an interesting day out, stopping off at various Roman museums along the route. All in all, visitors to Summer Cottage can travel off in all directions and still not see everything Northumberland has to offer. Beach ¾ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.
