Overview


Birdsong Cottage is a two bedroomed, finely furnished bed and breakfast. The name Birdsong will become apparent the moment you arrive, the birds are keen to be heard.

With fantastic access to the A1, a vista that will astound and a wonderfully furnished set of rooms Birdsong is an ideal retreat that provides a base for one to explore this historical region.

A traditional Northumbrian cottage in every sense. Run by Richard &  Sandra Beesley, you can expect a warm welcome to the cottage and an excellent breakfast in the morning!

At Birdsong Cottage we aim to make all our guests feel truly welcome and at home and are sure that they will enjoy a relaxing and memorable stay in this beautiful area of Northumberland.

With attractions such as the Alnwick Garden, Alnwick Castle and the stunning Northumberland Coast all close by, you can be sure of finding something to suit.

As a county, Northumberland has more strong houses and castles than anyother in England. But worry not, the county’s warring is long past! With such a variety of things to see, it’s no wonder Northumberland is dubbed “the secret kingdom”.

This affectionate title becomes apparent when simply taking in the view from Birdsong Cottage where one can see the magnificent Dunstanburgh Castle.A short drive to the south leads into Alnwick , Northumberland’s traditional county town and the seat of The Duke of Northumberland. With it’s imposing castle and the magnificent Alnwick Gardens along with a myriad of traditional shops, Alnwick (only 10 minutes drive from Birdsong) is well worth a visit.

Across to the east the dramatic vistas offered by the North Sea provide a unique and awe-inspiring site. The aforementioned Bamburgh Castle, once the seat of ecclesiastical power in Britain provides a good day out. Within a 15 miles radius of Bamburgh lie both Lindisfarne, accessible only by a causeway and also the world famous Farne Islands, home to a colony of more than 80,000 puffins during the summer months.

We can’t forget the Cheviot Hills that sit to the west of Birdsong cottage, part of the Northumberland National Park, the Cheviots provide a vast array of walks to suit all abilities.

Whatever your interests, with Newcastle a 40 minute drive and Edinburgh just over an hour away, you can be sure that Birdsong is an ideal base.

 

Accommodation

 

Haven suite 

Do you ever have the feeling you are looking for something – an “elusive something” perhaps something that feels like a “stolen treat” or just to cushion yourself from the world & wrap yourself in luxury for a day or two ? 

I think we all do don’t we?

From the luxurious  down duvet and pillows to the Coffee Connoisseur nespresso dream machine – Mmm – pure indulgence.

Throw in a gorgeous ensuite wet room,  Smart TV,  your own private Balcony & Hot Tub & we think we have the recipe just right for a little bit of self indulgence! So, if the wind just kind of pushes you this way – we would love to see you.

Complimentary breakfast is served to your room with a choice of Traditional Northumbrian Stottie stuffed with local sausage or bacon or you may prefer a selection of warm pastries & preserves.

With very low light pollution, the Haven balcony offers stunning dark sky views and if lucky an opportunity to see the Northern Lights.

Cracking place to get away from it all!


skinman123, Newcastle
My wife and I stayed here for one night in March 2017 and we had a brilliant time! Sandra and Richard welcomed us on arrival and the room was all ready for us. The room was a decent size and the wet room very stylish. There was some chocolate treats and sloe gin in the room on arrival. The hot tub was excellent and a great way to relax and switch off under the stars which were great as it was a clear night. Our breakfast order was placed on the evening and delivered fresh and bang on time at the time requested to our room, bacon stotties for the wife and sausage for me, with fresh fruit and orange juice. All in all we both loved it and wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Birdsong Cottage replied: Thank you for taking the time to post such a great review. Richard and I really appreciate it. We're delighted you were able to enjoy the beautiful Northumbrian sky, it's quite a sight. Hope you both enjoyed your walk and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Mrs and Mr Watson


lauratwed,
We stayed for a couple of days for our joint birthday weekend, we stayed in the haven suite it was amazing Sandra really went all out to make us feel at home by providing us with goddies in our room. The hot tub was amazing so relaxing and so private. The room was spotless. Gorgeous breakfast delivered straight to your room at a time you choose. This was our second trip to the Birdsong cottage and it was just as good if not better this time around. Such a lovely couple who own it. They both bend over backwards to make your stay so special. We will definitely be back next year. Highly recommend and worth every penny.

Birdsong Cottage replied: Thank you for taking the time to post such a great review. It was lovely to see you both again. Richard and I are really pleased that you both enjoyed you birthday weekend and look forward to seeing you next year.

Perfect Getaway

We had a fantastic stay at Birdsong Cottage in their Haven room with hot tub. Sandra and Richard could not have been more welcoming and our room was lovely, great wet room, really comfy bed and the hot tub made it for us. Lots of extras with choice of tea and coffee, homemade biscuits and fridge stocked with water, juice and milk - there was everything we could need. Breakfast was also delicious. Would definitely recommend and would love to return. Thank you for a perfect stay.

Birdsong Cottage replied: Thank you for posting such a great review, we really appreciate the feedback. Richard and I are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope that you come back up to enjoy many more walks in our beautiful county. Windy Gyle next time? Look forward to seeing you both again soon.

Perfect hideaway. Time out of mind.

On recommendation from a friend, we were delighted to find this gem. Very close to the A1 although, when you're inside, it seems miles from anywhere. Ideal location. Our hosts were lovely, friendly and welcoming. The Haven room was so cosy, the most comfy bed and bedding. I want to buy the whole lot for my bed! We were pampered with luscious treats of homemade buscuits, mini gin ( which was gorgeous and refilled every day), every type of tea and coffee you could wish for, a fridge thoughtfully filled with bottled water, fruit juice, chocolate and milk, great quality shower gels in abundance, little pots of cotton wool balls...... the treats were thoughtful, useful and endless. The wet room was a treat, and immaculate... and the outdoor hot tub under the stars!!!! Absolutely divine. The breakfast was immense and gorgeous. Absolutely everything about this beautiful place was so lovely. I would recommend this as the perfect, luxury break and we will definitely be back.

Birdsong Cottage replied: Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a lovely review. We really appreciate it. Richard and I are delighted that you enjoyed the little home comforts on offer and were able to appreciate the beautiful Northumberland Sky from the hot tub. Thank you for recommending us and we look forward to seeing you both again soon.

The perfect stay


fordhg1, Harrogate, United Kingdom
Superb from start to finish. Sandra and Richard welcomed us with open arms into their house as we spent a weekend in their hot tub room. They couldn't have done more to ensure we were happy and had everything we needed. Breakfast was served freshly cooked and absolutely delicious, straight up to the room. Our haven had so many extra touches, too many to mention which made it so special. Birdsong cottage is in a great location to explore the coast, with great recommendations from the pair. Without a doubt the best B&B experience we've had. If you want to visit Northumberland then look no further. Thank you very much for everything!

Birdsong Cottage replied: Thank you for taking the time to post such a great review, we really appreciate it. Richard and I are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you were able to explore our beautiful coast line. A boat trip out to see the wildlife on the Farne Islands next time? Look forward to seeing you both again soon.
