Holiday Rental House
A luxurious and unique beach cottage with an uninterrupted sea-view from the private balcony. Bank Top Cottage backs onto Cresswell beach where it sits on the tide defences at the south-end of beautiful Druridge bay in Northumberland. The position of the cottage means peace and quiet away from public access. The cottage boasts underfloor heating throughout, modern kitchen fittings and bathroom suite. The bedroom has a king bed with Egyptian cotton sheets & towels are included for two people. There is plenty of storage for your belongings. The cottage is 400 years old, but was painstakingly rebuilt using the original stone in 2010. The owners paid attention to every detail, from the beautiful tiled floors to the glass-fronted balcony overlooking the 9 miles of white sand beach to Coquet...A luxurious and unique beach cottage with an uninterrupted sea-view from the private balcony.
