WHAT TO EXPECT
The sea-facing decked balcony has all-round coastal views of the changing tides and white sands of beautiful Cresswell beach, at the south-end of Druridge bay, Northumberland. Bank Top Cottage offers you a view like no other, filled with mile after mile of sky, sand and sea. It was awarded a Five Star rating from Quality in Tourism in January 2011.
During the summer months the cottage’s glass-fronted terrace gives you the perfect opportunity to dine outdoors with a truly unique sea view that stretches for nine miles up to the lighthouse at Coquet Island to the north. During the winter months the sea 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 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 FM Clock Radio with an iPhone dock and bluetooth connectivity offer you the opportunity to keep in touch with the outside world or simply to relax with your favourite music or films.
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 Duck Island toiletries, the bathroom has been designed and built with luxury and your every comfort in mind.
THE OPEN-PLAN KITCHEN & LOUNGE
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.
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. Due to not having a phone line running to the property, there is currently no internet connection, there is reliable 4G within the village should you need it. View our FAQ's page for more information.
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. We guarantee you will feel at home in this luxurious retreat.
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 shared gravelled area next to the cottages entrance, making it easy access for all.
Due to the rural location of the cottage, a car is advised.
The cottage sits at the south-end of the historical village of Cresswell, on the bottom edge of Druridge Bay in Northumberland. The cottage forms what was once called ‘Fisher Row’, built back in the 1700’s.
Cresswell is a beautiful fishing village with it's own ice-cream shop and cafe within walking distance. It is a popular area for anglers, walkers, cyclists, artists and birdwatchers, who enjoy the wonders of the natural coast for 9 miles up to Coquet Lighthouse in the North. Cresswell is also the start of a 64 mile coastal walk which stretches right up Northumberland’s beaches and seaside towns, to Berwick-Upon-Tweed.
A 15th century watch tower in the heart of Cresswell village that has been lovingly restored for the public to visit.
Warkworth is a short drive away - the castle, all the sandstone architecture, the many pubs & lots of gorgeous walks make this a great day out in Northumberland.
Bird watchers spot birds such as Green, Wood and Curlew Sandpipers, Ruff, Redshank, Greenshank and Spotted Redshank, Ringed, Golden and Grey Plover, Curlew & Whimbrel, Bar and Black-tailed Godwits and more.
Make sure you visit this beautiful island, home to Lindisfarne Priory, Lindisfarne Castle and lots of stunning scenery.
Easy access via the A1 to beautiful Alnwick, with the castle & gardens, Barter Books, the market, and all the cafes: it's a perfect day out.
