Summer is pretty much over, and many of us are thinking about getting back to the daily grind. But don’t despair or get the post-summer blues, because you can book up many luxurious retreats in Northumberland over a weekend this autumn.

You can also think ahead to the half term if you are fixed to school holidays, and book up something to keep your mind off the office admin!

Here are some of the cottages you could book into this autumn:

Pet Friendly retreats – If you want to bring your dog with you (and why not? Northumberland is a very dog friendly place to be!) then Grace Darling Holidays has over 100 cottages that you can bring your dog into. For example, Duck Cottage in Beadnell is a great seaside bolthole set just behind the dunes of Beadnell Bay. You can get easy access to the sandy bay and enjoy drinks out on the south west facing patio. If you find the autumn evenings are not too cold, then the outdoor seating is ideal. Locally, you can find two pubs serving food and local ales along with two bistros which are within walking distance from the property. Why not book up here for the weekend, or look further ahead to the winter months and book up something here to celebrate the festive season.

Quirky Hideouts – If you want something amazing and quirky, Avala is the place for you. Sleeping up to 8 guests, this spacious property even has a private indoor swimming pool and is surrounded by a big enclosed lawn garden. This is a great place for a family to come at any time of year! What’s more, you will even get stunning views of the coastline from many rooms. Features also include 3 Flatscreen TVs, Large DVD library, Double oven and gas hob, Fridge and bottle chiller, Large Jacuzzi bath, Wood burning stove, Oil fired central heating, and is ideal for kids as it also has a travel cot and high chair at the property. This is a highly popular property, so booking in advance is essential!

Peaceful Getaways -Set right within the dunes of Budle Bay sands, Godwit is the perfect peaceful getaway for families or couples wanting some time out this autumn. It has a privately owned sandy beach, views across Budle Bay, and is the perfect place for walking, cycling, photographing and exploring. This cottage also has wifi if you really want to stay connected, plus all the self catering items you could want for making your own delicious food. This includes an electric oven, gas hob, BBQ, multi fuel stove and coffee maker. You can even order extras like a maid service or food deliveries to make it truly special.
