Fenwick Cottage, Whittingham, Alnwick, Northumberland

Fenwick Cottage, Whittingham, Alnwick, Northumberland (Sleeps 1 - 8)

Fenwick Cottage is in the pretty hamlet of Whittingham (pronounced whittin'jum), in the heart of Whittingham Vale and the Aln Valley in the county of Northumberland: England's most northerly county, blessed with some of Britain's most impressive countryside.

This stone cottage has been here for about 300 years but has been extensively modernised inside to ensure a comfortable stay. Northumberland is bordered by the River Tweed, Scotland to the north and the North Yorks Moors to the south. To the east lies the long and rugged coastline with the North Sea.

In the west can be found the Northumberland National Park, 400 square miles of lonely hill country stretching from Hadrian's Wall to the Scottish border: open moors, forest tracks, calm reservoirs and spectacular waterfalls all go to make a walkers paradise crossed by few roads.

The coastline between the outflows of the Tweed and the Coquet has been designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'; long uncrowded sandy beaches and pretty fishing villages. Coupled to this a wildlife habitat that boasts rare birds, seals and the occasional dolphin or whale and you have one of the most beautiful coastlines in the British Isles.
