Dog Friendly Holiday Cottages


Welcome to our Dog Friendly cottages, we are Lucy, Bella and Joss and we oversee all of the dog services at the cottages.

We want you to enjoy your stay with us and have provided dog bowls, beds (if needed) and our favourite toys – tennis balls!! Each cottage has its own garden and we have thoroughly tested them to ensure that they are secure and no one can get in or out. If you do find a way out we do provide dog tags with the address and our owners phone number on so you can get back safely.

There are plenty of lovely beach walks from the cottages – and there are walking books provided in the cottages for your humans to look at. All of the beaches are dog friendly and even the pubs at the end of the walks are dog friendly too! Some even serve ‘dog beer and snacks’.

We hope that you do come and stay with us and if there is anything you need to know before your stay or whilst you are with us please get in touch.

Dog Friendly Pubs and Restaurants

In Northumberland you will find many places to eat which are Dog Friendly. In Beadnell, itself we have The Craster Arms and Beadnell Towers which allow dogs in whilst serving food. Both of these pubs are located within walking distance of all 3 cottages and the beach.

The Craster Arms is a warm and welcoming pub, serving fabulous food, in the heart of the village. It has a large beer garden where you
can sit and relax after a long walk on the beach.

Beadnell Towers dates from the early 1900’s and is situated in the village centre. Offers a warm welcome and great food.

Further afield we have The Joiners Arms at Newton by the Sea which is a fabulous family and dog friendly pub and serves great food and
amazing cocktails. You can either drive the coastal route to Newton or even better you can walk along the beautiful Beadnell Bay and enjoy a nice cool drink and a bite to eat before the lazy walk home – this is about 4 miles each way but the views and food are worth it.

The Mason Arms is located in Warkworth and welcomes pooches, I think they even serve dog friendly ice-creams 


Dog Friendly Places to Visit

The Northumberland coastline stretches for 103 km from Cresswell in the South to Berwick-upon-Tweed in the North and forms part of the ‘North Sea Trail’ a coastal walking route so you can discover all of the beaches and historical buildings along the way. We are extremely lucky because all of the beaches allow dogs all year round so you can bring your furry friends along. Many of the historical castles and places of interest throughout Northumberland allow you to visit with your dogs too.

Warkworth Castle
Dunstanburgh Castle

Alfie & Lu is a small family run business in the North East who provide a range of luxury bedding for dogs that are comfortable, stylish and practical as well as a selection of handmade accessories that will make your dog stand out from the crowd.

We are members of the Northumberland County Council’s Green Dog Walker Pledge

Green Dog Walkers is a friendly non-confrontational way to change attitudes towards dog fouling.

Northumberland is a welcoming place to responsible dog walkers whether residents or visitors but not a place that tolerates irresponsible dog owners. The aim of the Green Dog Walker Initiative is to change public attitudes so that it becomes socially unacceptable to fail to clean up after your dog i.e. they should leave only pawprints.

The Green Dog Walker Initiative relies on volunteers for its delivery and uses a non-confrontational ‘keep it friendly’ approach to encourage responsible dog ownership. We ask Green Dog Walkers to talk to other dog walkers, offering free poop bags, distribute GDW leaflets and encourage other dog walkers to also sign up to the green dog walker pledge.
