Light Pipe Cottage Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Set in sleepy Bowsden, 3 miles from Lowick in rural Northumberland, this single storey cottage is semi detached and has been modernised with care and attention to details to provide a terrific holiday home for a family, couple or group of friends to enjoy. There are two bedrooms, a double and a twin, and a fitted kitchen plus a separate dining room. The sitting room has another dining area, great for an informal supper, as well as an open fire for those chillier evenings. There is a small lawned garden and a patio outside the cottage, a great spot for a cup of tea or evening drink. Beaches, castles, gardens and wide open spaces are all very easily reached from this lovely cottage.

Bowsden is a small village in rural Northumberland, a scattered community with one main street. The nearest shops and pubs are in the nearby village of Lowick, 3 miles away. This area is home to a very varied range of attractions and activities, such as the mini steam railway of the Ford and Etal estate, the Kimmerston Riding Centre, and 8 golf courses within 20 miles. The lovely beaches and fishing villages of the Heritage Coast are a short drive, or spend time discovering the tree house at Alnwick Gardens or exploring the castles at Alnwick and Bamburgh.

Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tiedtogether by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.

Very clean and comfortable cottage, with off road parking.We had a very relaxing and peaceful stay at the cottage with everything there that we needed.Only a stones throw away from some of the best beaches and coast lines you will ever see,and at night you could almost hear a pin drop.Only criticism is the double bed was a tad to hard and took some getting used to, but this is down to personal choice.The kitchen and bathroom were functional and the living room cosy at night.Overall a great place to stay if you want to get away from the hum drum of everyday life,a good place to recharge your batteries.
