A Stunning Self-Catering Holiday Cottage on the Northumberland Coast

Tide View is a beautiful Northumberland holiday cottage situated in the picturesque village of Lesbury, and is only a few minutes by car to the spectacular Northumberland coast and beaches such as Alnmouth and Boulmer, yet still close to the lovely market town of Alnwick, where you can visit the renowned "Alnwick Garden" and Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland and the setting for the "Harry Potter" films.

As this self-catering property can accomodate up to 14 people (smaller party bookings are available on a late deal basis), many of our guests have combined their holiday with memorable family celebrations, such as anniversaries and birthdays.

Ideal for golfing parties, Tide View is located within a 10 mile radius of some of Northumberland's finest golf courses which include Bamburgh, Seahouses and Dunstanburgh, all amid spectacular scenery, or if you prefer game fishing the cottage is located within easy access to the rivers Till, Tweed and Coquet.

The holiday cottage boasts a large, private garden with barbecue and picnic table. There is also a games room with pool and table tennis tables.

The "Coach Inn" village pub is approximately 500 yards from the cottage and has an excellent reputation for its fine ales and food.


Tide View was built in 1875 by the Duke of Northumberland to house key workers such as stonemasons and farm labourers who worked on his estate. The cottage took its name from its view of the river Aln at high tide as it meanders behind the picturesque coastal town of Alnmouth. For over a century Tide View along with the adjacent cottages became a well known landmark at the most easterly edge of Lesbury.

The village itself has been settled since before the 13th century, when it was a more important settlement than Alnwick. This has left a legacy of fine rural architecture with a predominance of stone built properties.
