The View

During the summer months the cottage’s glass-fronted terrace gives you the perfect opportunity to dine outdoors with a view that stretches for nine miles up to the lighthouse at Coquet Island to the north. During the winter months the view can be enjoyed from inside the cottage with panelled glass doors allowing light to pour in from the living landscape of sky, sand and sea beyond the terrace. Our personal favourite season in Bank Top Cottage has to be winter; the reinforced glass-balcony and bi-folding doors give the perfect view of the stormy seas from the comfort and safety of the lounge.

The Bedroom

The bedroom in Bank Top Cottage has a king size bed fitted with Egyptian Cotton micro-fibre bedding. A wardrobe and two bedside cabinets give you storage for your clothes and holiday reading while a 22″ television with remote control and a DAB/FM Clock Radio with an iPod and iPhone dock offer you the opportunity to keep in touch with the outside world or simply to relax with your favourite music or films.

The Bathroom

The attention to detail that makes Bank Top Cottage a holiday cottage with a difference includes sensor operated lighting in the bathroom and a contemporary luxury shower and bath suite. With a built-in shaver socket, heated towel rail, two drawers for storage, a wall-mounted W/C and a selection of complimentary spa toiletries, the bathroom has been designed and built with luxury and your every comfort in mind.

The Kitchen, Dining Room & Lounge

The open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge at Bank Top Cottage allows you to make the most of the incredible view out over Druridge Bay and the sea all year round.

The Kitchen

Bank Top Cottage offers you a self-catering holiday with a stylish difference. The fully equipped kitchen has fitted black gloss units complete with a built-in Bosch oven/grill, induction glass hob, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge.

The Dining Room & Lounge

Beneath the original oak beamed ceiling of Bank Top Cottage a two-seater leather sofa and a comfortable armchair offer incredible views up and down the Northumberland coast. During the summer months the doors to the terrace overlooking the sea can be opened fully, bringing the outside in to the cottage. The lounge is equipped with flat screen television with built-in Freeview and FreeSat and a Blu-Ray DVD player. If you’re holidaying in the cottage during the winter months then the under-floor heating and remote controlled convection fire will ensure that you stay warm all year round.


The flagstone path to the front door of Bank Top Cottage has been laid using the original four hundred year old stones from inside the cottage. You can park on the gravelled area next to the cottages entrance, making it easy access for all.

Cottage History
