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.

A truly beautiful B&B


Mrsjoannecw, Ingleton, United Kingdom
We stayed for 2 nights in Swallows Rest and from the second we arrived until we left, we felt very welcome. The room, bathroom and outside area were all immaculate and every little detail had been thought of for you to have the best stay possible. It is very well located in the area to visit all of the local attractions. The breakfast provided both mornings was a highlight too for us and we were lucky to have good weather to be able to enjoy eating outside - and of course it is so clear why it is called Birdsong Cottage ....listening to the many birds who must also just love the beautiful garden here. Thank you for looking after us so well - we will let everyone know about your lovely B&B.

Birdsong Cottage replied: Richard and I are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and would like to thank you for taking the time to post such a great review. So pleased you were able to have breakfast outside and enjoyed listening to all the birds chattering away. We really appreciate when guests recommend us and look forward to seeing you both again soon.

Lovely B&B, highly recommended


snigglybear, Manchester, United Kingdom
We spent 3 nights in the Haven room and felt very well looked after. The room was very comfortable, and the hot tub was great! Breakfast was delicious and always promptly delivered. Although it is a little out of Alnwick, it was an easy drive and we enjoyed exploring various different pubs and walks in the area. I also really appreciated the extra little touches for my birthday!

Birdsong Cottage replied: Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a great review. Richard and I really appreciate it. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and were able to enjoy some of what our beautiful county has to offer. It was a pleasure to be able to contribute to your birthday and we look forward to seeing you both again soon.

Lovely B&B Lovely Hosts


Helen B, Stockton-on-Tees, United Kingdom
Fantastic cottage with a very apt name - birdsong cottage. Birds singing whilst having a dip in the hot tub, what more could you ask for? Sandra and Richard are lovely, friendly hosts. Breakfast was amazing and the room (haven) was stunning. Ideal location for visiting the beautiful Northumberland. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning.

Birdsong Cottage replied: Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a great review. We love our little chatters. Glad you did too. Looking forward to a Strawberry moon on the 9th. Hope to see you both again soon

Simply stunning- Sarah and Andrew


Sarah J,
A beautiful, peaceful bed and breakfast. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Stunning! The perfect place to relax with your partner on a little getaway. Owners are lovely and very welcoming. The bed is out of this world and the hot tub just tops it off perfectly. The views are amazing. Wish we could have stayed longer. Our new annual retreat 😊

Birdsong Cottage replied: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for posting such a great review. Richard and I really appreciate the time you have taken to write this. Delighted that you enjoyed the facilities and the views and hope you get to see more when you come back next year.

Perfect getaway


carolineandchris2017, Seahouses, United Kingdom
My partner and I have now stayed in the haven room twice in the last year, we only live 7 miles away from birdsong cottage which is why it makes the perfect place to relax and unwind, we cannot fault the room, it has everything you need and the hot tub makes it all the more special, the icing on the cake is Richard and Sandra who are so welcoming but not intrusive, the breakfast is outstanding and just what you need to start the day, we cannot recommend this beautiful cottage enough, we are looking forward to our next visit. Caroline and Chris

Birdsong Cottage replied: Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a great review. Richard and I really appreciate the feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your second stay with us and our breakfast. Hope all continues to go well and we look forward to seeing you both again soon.
