Stayed at this cottage for my wedding at Backworth Hall. I hadn't even realised they existed despite growing up nearby. A definite hidden gem and absolutely perfect for what I needed. The location is fabulous (3 miles from the coast and just a short ride away from Newcastle), which was fabulous as we had family visiting for the wedding who also wanted to explore the area and they stayed in the next door cottage. The cottages have everything you need for a home away from home. They're beautifully decorated and have managed to retain all the charm of a small stone cottage despite having all modern amenities. Two bathrooms make it perfect for groups as well as families. The cottages also have well-kept gardens, perfect for enjoying a sunny evening with a glass of wine. There aren't enough nice words I can use to describe them.
