Rose Cottage is located in between historic Bamburgh and the rural farming life in Belford. Ideally situated between the Northumberland coast and wilderness of the Northumberland National Park, you really do have lots to discover. Surrounded by fields, trees and nature, Poppy Cottage has a lush, green backdrop. You can enjoy long, quiet walks and energetic hikes through the countryside. The area is packed with wildlife and even features a nature reserve, so birds like wildfowl and waders can be seen passing through in droves during the winter. Belford has a thriving and friendly market square at its centre brimming with restaurants and inns. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne can be seen from various points around the village and is within easy reach. It’s an ideal base for those wanting to partake in a spot of fishing and golfing. Rose Cottage is just a short 10-minute drive from the gorgeous coastal town of Bamburgh. Here you’ll find miles of stunning sandy shores and Bamburgh Castle, which is one of the finest castles in the country. Standing on the Northumberland coastline for over 1,400 years, there is a wealth of history to uncover.

Getting Around
Rose Cottage is located within 20 minutes’ drive time to beautiful areas within Northumberland such as Bamburgh, Seahouses and Beadnell. There are excellent travel links as the cottage is only a short distance from the A1. The closest train station is Chathill, which is roughly a 15-minute drive from Rose Cottage so local towns in Northumberland can easily be reached via rail. There are a number of bus stops throughout Belford. Hop on the 418 service to explore Bamburgh, Beadnell, Alnwick and Alnmouth amongst others. The X18 route travels between Newcastle and Berwick upon Tweed with stops in Morpeth, Amble and Seahorses. Newcastle Airport is roughly one hour away by car.

I had a lovely 3 days at Rose Cottage. It was warm very clean and comfortable. It has everything you need for your stay. It is set in a really quiet area, but in close proximity to the coast for going out and about. I had a lovely trip to the Farne Islands while I was there. I would highly recommend Rose Cottage to any for a long or short break.



lovely little cottage, cosy and well kept. quiet location with easy access to everything you need, would definitely recommend and plan to stay again.



It’s a lovely spot to get away. You’ll need a car to get to most places but your ten minutes from most villages / towns to visit, and there are walks you can do from the cottage too. Fantastic place, definitely recommend :D



Such a lovely, cozy and romantic cottage. Only 10 minute drive to the beach. Very quite and peaceful. It had everything we needed. The only suggestion, especially for the colder months, is to have some blankets as did get chilly in the evening. They do have a way of turning the heating up though which definitely helped. Other than that, we were very happy with our stay :)



Cosy cottage, extremely comfy bed, clean linen and plenty of fluffy towels.<br/>Decor a bit dark and could do with brightening up a tad.<br/>Problems with the lights on arrival, bulb had blown in the ceiling light and wall light switch didn't work.<br/>Two lamps in the living room weren't enough so it was a bit gloomy.<br/>Only one tea towel for the whole week, and kitchen could have been equipped a little better. Frying pan was burnt on the bottom, and saucepans were dirty. <br/>Cottage was otherwise very clean, but lots of cobwebs.<br/>Location was lovely and quiet, very peaceful and not far from Bamburgh.<br/>We enjoyed our stay, but a bit pricey for what we got.



Lovely quiet location, out in the sticks, postcode takes you right there. We had a bit of trouble with the key box, it’s a knack.<br/>Cottage is well equipped, perfect for a couples escape. <br/>We had read about the bird hide in other reviews, but couldn’t find instructions on where it was<br/>Out of the cottage turn left toward Bamburgh. 1/2 mile down there are some woods, go through the gate on the left and the hide is 300 yards in front. <br/>It’s well worth a trip, late afternoon is best.<br/>Red Squirrel, woodpeckers, yellowhammers, pheasants, mallards, moorhen all regular visitors.<br/>The cottage is ideally placed for Bamburgh, Seahouses Farne islands, Lindesfarne, Alnwick & Berwick would certainly recommend



It was a pleasant stay



Good communication, lovely to deal with, good accommodation. Would book again.



lovely cottage, clean and very tranquil and quiet.<br/>the cottage I feel needed up dating....decor etc very dark and old fashioned.



First trip away as a family and loved every second. Location was great, house was tidy, clean and so cosy. We would stay again in a heartbeat!



Clean, comfortable and well-equipped cottage in quiet, rural setting. Would highly recommend!



Lovely stay. Cottage really nice. Well equipped. Be aware listing is not actually in Belford but a 1hr 40m walk from there and a good 30-35m walk from Bamburgh if you are walking.



We enjoyed the cottage in it's country setting yet only minutes from Bamburgh. Watching the swallows just outside the cottage, the lovely flower baskets and pots made me smile every time we drove up to the cottage. The hide about 1/4 mile away was a lovely surprise and we saw red squirrels, greater spotted woodpeckers, coal tits etc here. The cottage was very well equipped, especially the kitchen. My husband was very pleased to find there was a 2nd TV in the bedroom so he could watch the motor racing! We had 5 wonderful days exploring countryside and coast without having to go very far. Though a little dark the living room was big for 2 people and it helped if the blind was as far up as it would go!



Absolutely fabulous!



Lovely cottage situated between the A1 and the beautiful Northumberland coastline. Would stay again



A nice accommodation providing an excellent location for visiting the local area.



We loved our stay at Rose Cottage. The location was brilliant, very close to Bamburgh and the A1 for getting to everywhere we wanted to go, but really quiet and tucked away in a small cluster of rural cottages. As others have mentioned, the decor is perhaps a bit dated but the cottage was very cosy and comfortable with everything we needed, the bed was big and superbly comfortable, there was lots of wardrobe space, plenty of hot water and the Wi-Fi was adequate for our needs, once we found the password. As keen birdwatchers, a highlight for us was the bird hide a short walk up the road, which we visited every day. We would happily stay there again.



Cozy and well situated to explore coastal Northumberland!



Great location for exploring this part of Northumbria.



This cottage is clean, comfortable and fitted out well. The location is quiet and rural, with little traffic on the minor laneways. The cottage is close enough to access a number of tourist destinations like Bamburgh castle, Lindisfarne, Alnwick castle and the coastal walks.<br/>If we travel back this way again I would try to reserve this cottage for a stay.



Very well located and peaceful place to stay :) We enjoyed walks trips to the beach, castles and seeing seals! Would recommend visiting Lindisfarne. The cottage was a comfortable and peaceful place to come back to.



Small cottage, well equipped though kitchen layout was not ideal. Great quiet location on a walking path and just down the road from a great little bird hide. Phone/wifi patchy. Would definitely recommend and stay again.



Good location. Functional and comfy cottage. We enjoyed our stay and would come back again.



We stayed 4 idyllic nights in Rose Cottage - so peaceful and quiet.<br/>The cottage is equipped to a very high standard and was spotlessly clean throughout <br/>Highly recommend



Brilliant little spot tucked out of the way, lovely and quiet. We would definitely recommend.



Great little cottage, amazing location- felt really remote but close to the A1 and to Bamburgh. Really comfy bed and useable kitchen (could do with a little better lighting in the kitchen, a better frying pan and a spatula). Lots of very hot water. <br/>15 minute walk to the local bird hide which was brilliant!



A lovely cosy cottage in a great location.



A great hideaway, remote and quiet but 2 miles from village life and Northumberland beaches.



Fabulous location. Very quiet but a short drive or longer walk as you desire to the beautiful coastline of Northumberland. <br/>Cottages well appointed and fitted the brief perfectly. Wi fi a little painful at times but not to the detriment of the whole experience.<br/>Throughly recommend if you are looking for peace , beautiful walks and total relaxation from the rat race. <br/>The bird hide was a hidden gem.



This cozy cottage is set very remotely which means peace and quiet stay that we really enjoyed. It's in a perfect spot to discover Northumberland.



A well equipped cottage in a great location. Wonderfully quiet. The decor is somewhat dated but the furnishings are new and the bed comfortable.



Cottage was clean, and in a good location, but facilities and decor were not really up to scratch for the price we paid. We had no working wifi, and the dishwasher mentioned in the listing did not exist. The main room was poorly lit, and the whole place just felt a little bit tired. But we were extremely glad to enjoy a holiday in beautiful Northumberland after months of lockdown winter.



Place was well located and spotlessly clean. Good assortment of things to cook with. We interpreted listing as having a useable fireplace (it's electric) however Andrew/Stay quickly refunded the rest of our stay as we decided to find somewhere with one instead. Really comfy bed and it was so quiet! Thanks for the milk and tea/coffee also.



Lovely place with privacy and not a long drive to Bamburgh, Holy Island and Seahouses.



We loved our stay at Rose Cottage. The cottage is warm, comfortable, quiet and has everything you need. Communication was always quick and helpful; check in and out instructions were comprehensive :) we would like to come again!



Cottage very clean and cosy, everything we needed comfortable and homely. Good spot for touring from.



Throughly enjoyed my stay here, a quaint little cottage not far from Bamburgh Castle. Beautiful scenery all around!



This property is in an ideal location for exploring the Northumberland coastline. It is a perfect distance from Bamburgh and the excellent beaches. The bird hide a short walk from the property was a real find. It is also close to many delicious eating establishments. Our stay was comfortable and relaxing in a property that did what is said on the tin.



Such a cute lovely little cottage in a great location. Really enjoyed our stay and shame we had to go home. Thank you so much Andrew



Lovely little cottage that was extremely clean. Close to some amazing sights



Lovely cottage and great location



Lovely cozy cottage in a beautiful location, was spotless upon arrival.<br/>Great value for money.<br/>Andrew was very quick to respond and very helpful.



Andrew was a great host, quick to respond and always attentive to any requirements we had.<br/><br/>Rose cottage itself is a lovely cottage, clean and cosy and set in a beautiful part of the world.<br/><br/>Would highly recommend to anyone.



A beautiful cottage in a fantastic lication aproximately four miles from Belford and three from Bamburgh aling beautiful country roads. Particularly loved the walk to Bamburgh and it's awesome beach. Thr cottage was warm and visy and had alk the amenities. It was spotlessly clean and so cosy with the fire. You couldn't ask for a livlier cottage and the hottub was lush. Patricia and Gabrielle were lovely and so helpful. A wonderful stay that really was soul and heart enriching. Thankful, we'll see you again. Couldn't recommend this cottage more highly. Andrew was very helpful too. Thank you Rachel xxx
