Our 40 yrs experience means we know everything about cottages

A little bit about us

We have been letting holiday cottages for over 40 years and become known for our hands on, personalised customer service when it comes to booking cottages for customers and managing properties for owners. Our hand picked cottages are chosen for their uniqueness, quality, location, views, and above all comfort, with that home from home feeling. Located throughout Northumberland, you'll find choosing one only cottage a rather difficult task in hand. 

First time visitors are always surprised by the beauty but soon return regularly to the hidden gem on the coast. Northumberland is awash with a wealth of beautiful scenery, rambling hills, long beaches and enchanting villages. It’s clear to see why it is a popular destination for those wanting to holiday in a wonderful setting.  

Why Grace Darling?

Our business has grown over the years and so has our list of cottages. With over 200 on our website, all handpicked and chosen specifically for our customers, our cottages are award-winning and each one has been personally inspected and approved. From castle views and log burning fires to amazing landscapes and locations that will live with you forever, we definitely have something for everyone.

We offer the finest selection of self-catering holiday cottages in Northumberland. Areas renowned for their outstanding natural beauty, as well as being steeped in history, our visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to places to stay. You'll find exclusive holiday cottages dotted along this magnificent Northumberland coast in traditional fishing villages like Beadnell and Seahouses. With the most famous of them all, Bamburgh and its 18th century stone cottages, medieval church and historical Bamburgh Castle. 

All levels of accommodation are available and we know you’ll feel at home as soon as you arrive. From coastal cottages and small townhouses to a prestigious country manor in Bamburgh there’s something for everyone. Accommodations are suitable for parties of two to twelve people and there are several cottages situated together, perfect for families and friends planning a trip.

Our four-legged friends

We love dogs and so do the owners of our cottages. This means you don’t have to leave your beloved pet behind. Our site allows you to search for cottages which are suitable for dogs. And ones that are Pet Free. That way anyone with allergies can sniff out those cottages and have a sneeze free break.

Moving with the times

There are many ways to book your cottage with us. You can do it on the website via your laptop, computer or smartphone and of course, there's the good old fashioned telephone if you would prefer to talk to us. We're always at the end of a phone, or email, if you are looking for a cottage recommendation, have a question about the rooms or even the hot tub. We want to make your booking and your stay as easy, relaxing and enjoyable as possible.

Local Office

Our offices are located in Seahouses and Alnwick where our local and very friendly staff are on hand to help you with any enquiry and can help you find the perfect cottage. Give us a ring on 01665 721332.
