It's no secret that we are very lucky with the amount of wildlife around Bank Top Cottage. It's not even necessary to leave the property on most days to be able to witness some lovely sights: we often see pods of dolphins passing by, enjoying the warmer months in the north sea - just recently it was confirmed that Orcas were sighted in Druridge bay! Not to mention the wide range of bird life that visit the rocks at low tide. We love seeing the display of the local Cormorant, he often sits with his wings outstretched drying off after fishing (we can't help but think he's just showing off his lovely feathers!).
We were pleasantly surprised by our most recent visitor - a young seal pup sunbathing on the rocks below Bank Top Cottage!! They rested there for a few hours before swimming off and out to sea. Many of our guests have seen seals swimming in front of the cottage. They are a pleasure to watch, and so playful too, weaving in and out of the water. It's just another reason to book your stay in Bank Top Cottage, Cresswell, Northumberland.
