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 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’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
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.
Lovely spacious cottage in quiet area nicely furnished and well equipped. Nice garden full of wildlife with great views from the terrace. Ideal to sit out with drinks! Will definitely visit again.
Perfect location for wildlife and walking in the local area. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable break. The views are spectacular.
We have stayed at Longstone Cottage several times and return because the accommodation is very comfortable, well equipped, clean and in a beautiful setting. It’s location is excellent for local walks and cycle rides in addition to exploring the northern parts of Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.
Back again for our 5th visit – this time with extended family and it was a delight to show off “our” cottage. We will be back soon (we hope) to enjoy this wonderful cottage again.
Fantastic stay at Longstone Cottage.
Incredibly warm welcome from Richard & Pat.
The cottage was everything we needed and more. You are so well catered for, it really does take the stress out of packing.
The views are outstanding, you can lose hours sat in the conservatory just looking out at the scenery and wildlife.
Family of four, returning next year.
This was our third stay in this special cottage and it gets better each time. The cottage is situated in a peaceful hamlet with outstanding views over the rear garden to Holy Island.
The spacious accommodation is very comfortable, fully equipped and immaculately kept by the owners who go out of their way to make the stay as enjoyable as possible.
Of all the cottages we have stayed in this is the only one we have returned to, which says it all.
