Very comfortable King bed with lots of storage.

Enjoy the sea view from morning to night.
The snowy balcony in January.
You can open the bi-folding doors to welcome the outside in.
Even grey days look brilliant from Bank Top Cottage's balcony.
The cottage is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sea view.

Lovely position so close to the sea. We ended up eating in most evenings as why try and find a pub with a nice view when you already one . Everything in the cottage is top quality the sheets the towels etc etc

“Great cottage with uninterrupted sea views”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

As regular visitors to the area we expected variable weather and we were not disappointed.
Hail thunder and lightning one evening watched from this cottage was quite spectacular (we did have good weather as well). The cottage itself was well equipped and comfortable.
Appreciated the peace and quiet after days out. Would definitely return.

Thank you for your lovely comments.

That evening was a glorious sight; the sun seemed to be shining throughout the hail, lightning and thunder!

I'm so pleased you enjoyed Bank Top Cottage.

“Simply Stunning”

Just got back from a three night break at Bank Top Cottage...breath taking views and peace all in the comfort of a cosy little nest.
Tides were rough and high one of the days and it was magnificent being so close to the drama of nature.
Ideal place to explore Northumberland which is THE most wonderful scenic part of the world and even though I have ventured here so many times since I was little, it never gets boring. In fact it seems more and more gorgeous with every passing year.
The cottage is thoughtfully fitted out and attention to detail is spot on.
Northumberland is a spiritual place and this cottage is the place to enjoy it from. Cannot fault it...

Wow, thank you for the great review!

We're so happy you loved the cottage. Northumberland is a beautiful place to explore, and I agree that it never stops changing for the better!

The rough tides are our favourite weather in Bank Top Cottage, there's nothing quite like it, seeing nature at its best from the safety of indoors.

Kind regards, Ewa

Walk all day on the sands with no one in view. Visit the many castles and other historic sites and marvel with others at the ingenuity of our forebears.
Use the train and spend a day in Newcastle - walk the winking bridge and visit the Baltic Centre on the other side!
Shop in quaint Morpeth and enjoy a coffee or pint with friendly geordies.
Then retire back to the gorgeous cottage and wonder why you left the fascinating ever changing seascape.
