Description

Bank Top Cottage is a unique & luxurious beach cottage for two, perfect for romantic coastal getaways.

The cottage sits on the tidal defences overlooking the 9 miles of Druridge bay in the beautiful county of Northumberland. The 180 degree sea views are forever changing and are a wonderfully relaxing sight at any time of year! The property is detached and all on one level with the parking right outside the entrance.

The cottage boasts a fully apexed open-plan lounge and kitchen overlooking the sea, with it's own private glass-fronted balcony that is perfect for guests to enjoy breakfast outdoors with nothing but the sound of the waves below.

In the bedroom there is a king size bed with Eqyptian cotton linen, a TV with Freesat, 2 bed side tables and built-in storage for your belongings. The bedroom window also looks out over the bay, you're spoilt for views from Bank Top Cottage!

The bathroom has a fully fitted contemporary bath and waterfall shower suite, heated chrome towel rail, vanity mirror and floating W/C.

White Egyptian cotton towels and bed linen are provided enough for two people along with mini spa toiletries.

Bank Top Cottage caters for those who want to get away from it all but is also perfect for those wishing to explore the county. Northumberland is filled with historical sites, the castles are magnificent - our favourites are Alnwick castle and gardens (Harry Potter was filmed there!), Bamburgh castle which overlooks miles of white sandy beaches and of course The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is a must see whilst you're in the area.

Due to the location of the cottage there is currently no internet connection but there is reliable 4G available (dependent on your carrier).

Guest Comments

"Stayed at this beautiful property for a long weekend celebrating our wedding anniversary.The accommodation was excellent, clean, modern and very comfortable with stunning views out to sea. A perfect place to relax, chill out and, rest with long walks along a gorgeous beach. Ewa was a perfect host with a lovely welcome then leaves you to enjoy a peaceful and uninterrupted break. Would love to return when possible. Highly recommended for a tranquil break."

"This is our second visit to this amazing seafront cottage, having spent our 40th wedding anniversary here last August. What can I add that has not already been said. This is heaven and it doesn't matter about the weather, infact the changing weather, sunsets, tides just make for a wonderful experience looking out from the lounge bifold windows. Always such a warm and friendly greeting from Ewa the host who has made this cottage into a luxury cosy and romantic retreat. (You only have to look at the guest review book) wedding anniversaries, honeymoons, even a proposal. We feel totally relaxed when we arrive here, just home from home. From the deck of the cottage we were so lucky to see a large pod of dolphins beyond the bouys hunting for food. It really doesn't get better than that. So much to visit within a short journey from the cottage. WONDERFUL. Thanks again Ewa and we hope to see you next year. Chris a s Steve."

"As I said in the guest book this cottage was a dream that was made into a reality and what a little gem it is It’s a good size with all the amenities you need just like home from home the views from the balcony are amazing we had breakfast near enough each morning except for one day as sadly it was raining and the sunsets of an evening really topped the day off .especially the evening we celebrated our 44th anniversary of our first date night of which we had our meal looking out at the sea. Not sure a local restaurant could provide the amazing view we had . we also did well with the weather so it was great to get about and about in this lovely part of the country as it was our first time to Northumberland lots of walking and visiting Bamburgh castle. Holy Island Alnwick gardens. Ambel Craster (make sure you visit the kipper smokehouse ) Seahouses the best place for fish and chips and Cragside this place is amazing beautiful scenery and great walks Thanks again Ewa. The cottage is beautiful and we had a wonderful week there I’m sure we will be back again"

"If you’ve found the website, you know you’ll be in for a treat, but it’s truly only when you get here you’ll fully realise what an absolute treasure this wonderful retreat is: simply fantastic! The most fabulous views and location; intelligently situated with both an amazing and sophisticated complete sea opening wall of a really classy (& easy to use/open/close) trifold door ceiling to floor, end to end, wall of glass:- providing the most magnificent views that then leads to a gorgeous viewing & dining deck, with lovely table and chairs. From the deck, you can see endlessly for miles, with the most stunning views of the beach (which is sandy and lovely - we walked for hours, and you could walk as far as you could). The sea view is amazing and seeing the tide come in right up to the cottage base (but below the base of the deck on the massive rock edge - wow! Really dramatic and smart) and even in the strongest of tides, inside the cottage, you are so protected from any weather, watching dramatic seas and sky with no wind or noise is magical. We had both ends of weather on our stay, to-die-for dark and eerie thunderous sky’s - so dramatic (but felt impenetrably safe in the cottage), and then within a day, lovely mid-May sun, enjoyed shorts & T-shirt (& even some sunbathing) and swims in the sea... , so hard to do justice in writing about, but just simply fantastic! The cottage is really cleverly designed, with very thoughtful furnishings and decorations, wonderful bathroom, bedroom and main room/kitchen diner, lovely ceiling with skylights and everything from the kettle to bedside radio are really classy and the whole cottage is so tastefully and cleverly set up... you won’t want for anything. An amazingly comfortable memory foam cool and supportive (almost weightless feeling) bed, is one of the chief assets, and we both slept so well every night - gorgeous. This is a really fabulous place to escape, relax and unwind. Peaceful, timeless, comfy, immaculately clean, welcoming (Ewa is a true host and her guests guide folder in the cottage is brilliant). All we could need. The local seaside hub and harbour (small and enticing) town of Amble (only a couple of miles north) is fabulously equipped with lovely restaurants, cafes, seafood suppliers (some of the best lobster we’ve ever had), smashing shops and harbour/sea edge beach-hut mini bijou and boutique shops (where we bought some real ‘life-treasure’ souvenirs of our seaside adventure). Bank Top Cottage is just a perfect retreat, where we’ve had one of the nicest breaks for many years. Perfect place, genuine owner host (so helpful and kind), can’t wait to come again. We miss BTC! Thank you Ewa."

"This was our fourth visit to Bank Top Cottage and as always we got a lovely warm welcome from Ewa. Such a beautiful tranquil place that will draw you back again and again. We have already booked our next visit to this wonderful home from home. Would highly recommend."

Louise N, May 2019

"Just had the most amazing week at Bank Top Cottage. Beautifully appointed, clean comfortable and cosy with panoramic sea views. Ewa gave us a warm welcome and made sure we had everything we needed. Falling asleep to the sound of the sea was so relaxing. The beach was fabulous and we walked for miles. Booked a return visit next year"

Christine H, April 2019

"A wonderful weekend in Cresswell, THE most beautiful cottage and views - looking forward to our next visit."

Tripadvisor Member, April 2019

"We had a superb holiday at Bank Top Cottage. It was spotlessly clean with everything you might need. The view was TOTALLY STUNNING. We loved every minute. Ewa was a lovely friendly host. There was lots to do in the area. Thank you."

Jackie D, April 2019

"Spent a peaceful long weekend at Bank Top Cottage. It is stunning - the cottage is modern yet cosy. Has everything you need and the attention to detail sets it apart from other cottages. But what makes this is the view. WOW! It’s honestly priceless and to wake up to that view was heaven on earth. Listening to the waves at night is my idea of heaven anyway! The area is stunning and we walked a lot - did a 9 mile walk to Amble along the beach and the coastal path which was lovely. Food wise - definitely check out the Drift Cafe about 250m from the cottage. Full English was spot on. Bank Top Cottage is truly a special place and we’ll definitely be coming back! Ewa was so helpful with showing us round and settling us in. Thank you!"

Kate B, March 2019

"A fantastic luxury cottage with wonderful views of the sea. The perfect place for a peaceful retreat. Beautiful sunrises and moonlight nights."

Tripadvisor Member, February 2019

"Unbelievable location. Stunning views. Quiet. Extremely peaceful. We'll visit again. Beautiful area. Thank you Ewa"

Tessa H, February 2019

"We enjoyed the most fantastic few days at this beautiful cottage which is in an idyllic location. Watching the changing tides and listening to the sounds of the sea so close to the cottage was so relaxing and the wonderful weather we enjoyed gave us amazing sunrises, sunsets and starry starry nights. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need and our host, Ewa gave us a warm and friendly welcome and we immediately felt at home. The cottage is ideally situated for exploring the surrounding area or just walking along the miles and miles of sandy beach. We visited Cragside, Rothbury, Amble, Alnmouth, Warkworth, Beamish and lots of lovely little villages in between, It was a pleasure to return to such a warm and cosy cottage at the end of the day. We will definitely return and would highly recommend Bank Top Cottage."

Tripadvisor Member, October 2018

"We booked here for our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed! We were up just after six each morning listening to the birds and watching the tide changing. The place was spotless and Ewa couldn't have been more accommodating. I would recommend this to anyone, talk about a "room with a view". Thank you, I'm sure we will return."

Michael K, September 2018

"A superior holiday rental for two. On the very edge of the sea with changing views as the tide ebbs and flows. The view at high tide from the kitchen/living room was reminiscent of being on a cruise ship. A lovely relaxing cottage in a quiet location. The cottage has been thoughtfully fitted out with quality items. Ewa’s attention to detail and helpfulness makes it all the more enjoyable."

Tripadvisor Member, September 2018

"This cottage is ideally located right on the sea front. It is also equipped and fitted out to a very high standard making for a first class holiday. It is located on a lovely stretch of Druridge Bay with lovely walks along the beach and also within easy distance of nearby attractions such as Warkworth Castle, Alnwick Gardens, Bamburgh Castle, and within distance for visiting Holy island. From the cottage decking you can watch a great variety of seabirds feeding in the rock pools as the tide goes out. All in all a great location for a holiday."

TripAdvisor Member, September 2018

"We spent a week in Bank Top cottage in August and found the accommodation to be of a very high standard. There is under-floor heating, modern kitchen and bathroom and the most amazing views from the glass balcony. In fact, during our stay we saw a dolphin leaping by in the water and a seal on the beach! There is an array of birds to see and the setting is so relaxing, yet within an hour (by car) to Alnwick, Lindisfarne and other sights. Morpeth is only 15 minutes away and is a lovely town with plenty of shops, a train station and is a pleasant place to spend an afternoon. Ewa greeted us at the property and is a lovely young lady who is keen to make your stay perfect."

TripAdvisor Member, August 2018

"We have just celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary at this wonderful cottage and wanted for nothing. Everything provided is very high quality which guarantees a very comfortable stay. Congratulations on a great design and imaginative use of space. Although the weather could have been better there are some lovely places to explore along the Northumberland coast within walking or driving distance. The views from the cottage out to sea are ever changing depending on the time of day,from spectacular sunrises to moody skies and sea. (see photos) Special thanks to Ewa for a very warm welcome. We hope to visit again if any spaces left!! This stay was booked 18 months ago. Thanks from Chris and Steve."

Christine, August 2018

"Perfect hideaway for two in an idyllic location. Waking to floor to ceiling sea views every morning was wonderful. We even woke to watch the sun rise over the sea one morning. We saw seals and dolphins from the veranda. We had the best time. Ewa was an excellent host. We'll definitely be re-booking."

Katy, August 2018

"We have just returned from a weekend at this stunning property. All the rooms are superb and the attention to detail is second to none. The views from the balcony extend all the way up the lovely sandy beach. You can just sit back on the decked balcony and enjoy the ever-changing scenery and wildlife or walk the endless miles of sandy beach. We walked approximately 9 miles along the beach to Amble which has a lovely fishing port and independent shops located in unusual pods. You can get an hourly bus back to Ellington on the X20. The bus stops are located on the high street. Then its an approximate half hour walk back into Creswell. Ewa is lovely and friendly and the property is a credit to her. Can't fault it. Definitely 5 star."

Janet, July 2018

"Ewa's meet and greet on arrival was lovely. Cottage is wonderful. View is amazing. Very relaxing break. Will be booking again"

TripAdvisor Member, July 2018

"Absolutely stunning. What a gem beautifully furnished with masses of attention to detail. Lovely just to sit and watch the changing tides."

Ken, June 2018

"Bank Top cottage was a beautiful, cosy, comfortable, modern cottage with a view to die for! We had mixed weather so witnessed the lovely beach view in both sunshine and windy/cloud, and it was equally as beautiful. The cottage was warm and cosy on those cooler days! It was ideally situated for sightseeing around Northumberland or just long lazy walks along the beautiful beach! Ewa (the owner) was the perfect host, very helpful and obliging. We most definitely will be visiting again! Thanks!!"

Melanie, June 2018

"Beautiful weather to explore the north east coast . The cottage was excellent for me and my wife, very comfortable, well placed to explore and relax . Recommend the accommodation and area for your main holiday and a short break . Host was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area...highly recommended."

Atkin, June 2018

"Perfectly situated on the beach. If you can tear yourself away from the views you can head to the various historical sites nearby. Lovely lovely place to spend a holiday and Ewa is a fantastic host. Thank you for looking after us and making our stay so special. We will definitely be back- what ever the weather! Can't recommend this place enough!"

Angela, April 2018

"Had the most amazing 5 days at Bank Top Cottage. It was beautifully decorated, so comfortable and had everything you could need. Would love to be back there right now enjoying the amazing views from the balcony"

Kathryn, March 2018

"Everything is just right about this place! The perfect get away! Cosy and comfortable to just relax and take in the view or a base for exploring the amazing local area!! Another visit is planned!"

Andrew, March 2018

"Leaving Bank Top Cottage today after a wonderful birthday weekend. A fabulous quiet and peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of life. Lovely coastal walks along the beaches if you can tear yourself away from the breathtaking view from the lounge. This was our second visit and we can’t wait to return. Thank you Ewa xxx"

Louise, February 2018

"We were recommended Bank Top Cottage but nothing could have prepared us for how amazing this cottage is! From the moment of booking Ewa was friendly, accommodating and professional. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and shown around the most beautifully appointed cottage we've ever stayed in. I'm sorry, Ewa, if I wasn't paying attention to you but I was mesmerised by the view, perhaps one of the finest in the country. The cottage sits on the breakwater with a glass encased deck giving a 180 degree view of the bay. I could have sat by the window for days watching the ebb and flow of the tides, the wading birds and the huge skies. The cottage was stylish and warm, offering everything you could possibly want. We booked a four night stay - I wish it was for longer so we'll just have to come back!"
