Our cottage which takes it’s name from the famous Longstone Lighthouse on one of the Farne Islands is situated in the hamlet of Detchant, between the historic towns of Alnwick and Berwick upon Tweed. The cottage which dates back to the 1800s, has been renovated to a high standard and provides well equipped and extremely comfortable accomodation with attractive gardens to both the front and rear of the property.
During your stay at Longstone Cottage, you will enjoy spectacular views over the rolling countryside towards Bamburgh and the coast, with views of Holy Island and the Farne Islands. This is an excellent base for walking, cycling, bird watching, golf, riding, water sports and visits to historic castles and houses. Alternatively explore the many sandy beaches and fishing villages along the Northumberland Heritage coastline.
Longstone Cottage has been in our family for many years & we genuinely love being able to share this wonderful accommodation with others looking to explore the beautiful countryside & everything it has to offer. We are extremely proud of our Four Star Self Catering Accreditation from ‘Visit England’ and we are sure that you will enjoy all of the home comforts our cottage has to offer.
Nestled in the hamlet of Detchant, between the historic towns of Alnwick and Berwick upon Tweed, you’d be hard pressed to find a better location than Longstone Cottage. Northumberland is often described as Britain’s best kept secret. Miles of golden sands, rugged coastline, open moorland and more castles than any other county in England.
We have had such a lovely week in the cottage and in Northumberland. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped. We loved the stove and the amazing views, especially in the conservatory.
We’ve had a fantastic week in this fabulous cottage on our annual pilgrimage to Northumberland. By far the best and most well equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. The views from the conservatory are fabulous. We hope to visit again (maybe next year!)
Fantastic cottage. Fantastic facilities. Fantastic views. This has been our second visit and we’ll hopefully be coming again (and again)
A big massive thanks to Richard & Pat for the use of this great cottage which was just perfect. Stunning views, great location, good information and books. You have thought of everything. Thanks
History, nature, lots of walking, good food and comfort when returning ‘home’. What more could you ask for.
Couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay.
Your cottage is amazing, didn’t want for anything. It’s clean comfortable and has amazing views. We cannot recommend it enough, an absolute Gem!
Many thanks for yet again a brilliant week.
We have had another wonderful week using your beautiful cottage as a base for our holiday in Northumberland. We all love coming back each year because as soon as we arrive we immediately relax as everything has been thought of – a relaxing cuppa, a comfy chair looking out over a spectacular view and books and games to entertain the children.
We’ll definitely be back! Many thanks.
