Welcome to Grace Darling Holidays. With over 40 years of experience, we specialise in offering beautiful self-catering properties along the picturesque Northumberland coast.
Northumberland combines natural beauty with ancient history, making it a truly special retreat. Our cottages cater to all, from couples looking for a romantic, luxury break, to families searching for a home-away-from-home. Properties in our portfolio – situated across quaint villages and settlements including Beadnell, Seahouses, Bamburgh and Newton-by-the-Sea – include everything from cosy cottages, barn conversions and townhouses, to one very special country manor. Even better, most are pet-friendly. Nearby attractions include World Heritage Site Hadrian’s Wall, striking historic castles, golden beaches, rocky cliffs and woodlands.
If you fancy a break further up north, why not try our apartments and holiday cottages in Fort Augustus? Based in a converted Benedictine monastery on the banks of Loch Ness, nestled in 20 acres of private gardens, each property is unique and unforgettable, combining original features with mod-cons. You can also make full use of the ‘Highland Club’ facilities, including a restaurant, bar, sauna, steam room and swimming pool. A children’s adventure play area, barbecue spots and croquet laws are just some of the other attractions on offer. If you want to venture out, don’t miss a visit to the Loch Ness loch, where legend states the elusive monster Nessie is hiding out...
There are also plenty of historic castles within easy reach for day trips, and Fort William and Inverness are nearby too. Or you might just want to take in the sights in this magnificent part of the world, with walks, a spot of fishing and a game of golf.
