Welcome to our Northumbrian Cottages

Welcome to Northumbria Byways’ website. We offer a fantastic range of holiday cottages, specialising in Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, Cumbria, Durham and Tyne and Wear.

We offer a stunning collection of Northumbrian Cottages, with over 240 self-catering properties that are the perfect base for exploring the North East of England. Whether you are looking for a quaint fisherman’s cottage or a modern seaside apartment, a cosy cottage in the countryside or an old barn conversion, a Canadian style lodge or a shepherd's hut, we have something for everyone.

We have romantic cottages for couples, properties perfect for big families or large groups, and a range of cottages in the same area that can be booked together. We also have a selection of luxury properties, with access to private leisure club facilities, or cottages with hot tubs. Dogs are welcome almost everywhere in Northumberland, and over 150 of our properties are dog friendly meaning no one needs to be left behind.

With so much to see and do in Northumberland and the surrounding areas, more than a day is needed to explore. Many of our properties accept short breaks in the low season or on a last minute basis.

We have a variety of coastal cottages and apartments along the stunning Heritage Coastline, stretching from North Shields, all the way up to Berwick Upon Tweed. We have a fantastic selection of holiday lets in Seahouses - popular all year round with its bustling harbour, sandy beach and regular boat trips to the nearby Farne Islands. Bamburgh is another brilliant seaside location, with its beautiful stretch of coastline in the shadow of Bamburgh Castle, and its proximity to The Holy Island of Lindisfarne. We also have a great selection of traditional fisherman’s cottages in villages including Craster and Embleton, Amble, Low Hauxley, Cresswell and Alnmouth.

Moving inland we have some amazing cottages scattered throughout the Northumberland National Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which covers nearly 400 square miles and boasts stunning scenery, rolling hills, cascading waterfalls, and the darkest skies in the country.

The picturesque Hadrian’s Wall stretches over 70 miles and we have a selection of properties that are ideally situated close to Hadrian's Wall path, great for those who enjoy the outdoors.

For those who prefer to be immersed into the bustling market town life, we also have a range of homes only a short walk from shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants in areas including Alnwick, Hexham, Rothbury and Alston.
