This year, I’ve hardly taken any holidays. Just a few days here and there for a break, but we’ve not actually been away. To say I was in desperate need of one was an understatement! As mentioned in a previous post, Rob & I took a short break up to Northumberland for a bit of coasteering. Now, I love a good adventure weekend, but at the same time, I wanted something cosy and cute to come back to after throwing ourselves off cliffs.
For those who don’t know what coasteering is, it’s basically a few hours in a wetsuit climbing, swimming, jumping off and scrambling across a dramatic coastline (with professionals) and is so much fun if you’re adventurous or just silly adrenaline junkies like us!
I highly recommend Adventure Northumberland who we went coasterring with. Zoe, our expert for the day, took plenty of pictures of our fun afternoon.
Either side of the coasteering, we spent the most cosy two nights’ stay at the beautiful Birdsong Cottage.
This was our room for the short stay, with the most amazing bathroom ever complete with plenty of candles and bottles of lotions and potions for you to help yourself to. I could’ve stayed in that bath all night!
Amanda was such a wonderful hostess and we’ll definitely be back for another weekend of coasteering with Adventure Northumberland and a stay at Birdsong Cottage. Amanda also had the most adorable pug named Sydney who loves to say hello!
There is another room at complete with hot tub and wet room, and a lovely little caravan at the bottom of the garden with the ducks and chickens available for hire too.
Everything from the decor and warm welcome from Amanda would definitely have us back there tomorrow. The bacon stotties were amazing for breakfast!
Make sure you check out the Trip Advisor reviews of Birdsong Cottage and the Facebook reviews of Adventure Northumberland to see what other activities they do if you’re not really one for jumping into the sea from a high level! We had such a great time away, I’m sure you will do too!
