Rising Sun Coastal Cottage Self-Catering

Holiday home
Rising Sun is an end-terraced cottage in the village of Christon Bank. This single-storey cottage has two double bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen diner and sitting room with woodburner. Outside is off road parking for two cars and a garden with furniture and BBQ. Rising Sun has the amenities of the village on the doorstep, and with the coast just a couple of miles away offering sandy beaches and historic castles, makes a wonderful year-round base.

Area
Eight miles north of Northumberland's picturesque market town of Alnwick, likes the charming village of Christon Bank. Not only are Alnwick's beautiful castle and gardens close at hand, but visitors to the area are also only a mere two miles from the lovely bays at Embleton and Low Newton by the sea. These wonderful bays lay on a strip of unspoiled sandy beaches and are only a brief drive from the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, and the other nature-rich Farne Islands. Set in the rolling hills, this lovely little village has a traditional, real ale pub, which also serves food, but for more variety of cuisine, the neighbouring villages also host a number of excellent restaurants. The Scottish Borders are within easy reach, as is the lively cosmopolitan city of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Region
Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.

Amenities
Oil central heating with woodburner. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, TV with Freeview, DVD, CD/radio, selection of books, games and DVDs.

Well equipped, very clean cottage which is surprisingly spacious but still manages to retain its cozy feel.. Short drive/cycle to a fantastic gastric pub and stunning beach where you can walk for miles. Excellent base to discover the whole of Northumberland and beyond... already planning our next stay!

A beautifully spacious and clean cottage, ideal for a family holiday.. It is very well equipped and with a lovely garden for relaxing in (and safe and contained for children) and has ample parking. Our only disappointments were the old and uncomfortable mattresses (the master bedroom in particular) and the lack of WiFi.

Syles rising sun was a real jewel! . The cottage layout lent itself beautifully to family living, in a wonderful secure location. the beaches and local countryside were easily accessible and rolled out before us like real eye candy. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

This is our fourth stay at The Rising Sun.. A little gem. Home from home with everything you need for a comfortable stay whatever the weather throws at you. An added bonus of an enclosed lovely little garden. Will definitely be back for visit number five.

The Rising Sun provided us with a wonderful base for exploring this part of Northumberland and it's stunning coastline.. The cottage had everything we needed and was well equipped and comfortable. The garden is really lovely with a sheltered terrace enabling us to enjoy a coffee (even in October!) whilst watching the wealth of birds that visited regularly. We had a fantastic autumnal break and enjoyed the cosy wood burner in the evenings.

This is a lovely, spacious cottage in a quiet location ideal for exploring the Northumbrian coast.. It also has a very pretty, well kept, private garden if you prefer to have a day in. Only downside is no internet.
Mrs Green

We had a wonderful time at this cottage.. If you are going to Northumberland you must stay at the Rising Sun. We only had to travel 2 miles and we were at the beach. The cottage was extremely comfortable and there was plenty of room, the garden is great to sit out in. We would definitely go to the Rising Sun again.

Rising Sun was ideally located for the local beaches, convenient for the A1 for trips further afield and Alnwick was only about 10 minutes away.. The cottage was beautifully presented, clean, practically laid out very family friendly. We enjoyed being able to get out into the beautiful countryside very easily, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage for a great family holiday.

This was an outstandingly superb cottage; the best we have stayed in in 25 years of booking holiday cottages.. The quality of the cottage and the attention to detail was wonderful. When looking to rent a cottage, you hope to find a place which is even nicer than your own home and just as comfortable - this fitted the bill and more. The pictures and décor were absolutely perfect and reflected the owner's exceptional taste. Add the fact that the cottage was so close to the very fine Northumbrian coastline and you have the perfect holiday package. Needless to say, we loved the holiday and would happily return at some later date. We shall certainly be recommending the cottage and the area to friends and family.

A beautifully styled and comfortable house. Everything we needed was in the kitchen, there was plentiful hot water and a shower with good water pressure. The garden was immaculate and perfect for eating out, relaxing and watching the birds. A lovely spot for a base when touring the Northumberland coast.
Mr New

The cottage was furnished comfortably for a family stay and had everything that we needed. It was larger than we anticipated and was only a mile from the exceptional coastline. The garden had space for the kids to run around in and the cottage and as a whole it was immaculately maintained. We would be back in a heartbeat.
