Our handpicked collection of around 60 design-led and individually-styled holiday cottages welcome you to our coastal region of Northumberland – an award-winning family destination renowned for its iconic castles, white sandy beaches and unique islands.
Named runner-up in the 2016 Family Traveller awards in the Best UK Accommodation Group category, Coastal Retreats was founded by a family of style-loving professionals who realised that even their children appreciated intelligent design and thoughtful touches on holiday. And so began a collection of style-inspired holiday properties in prime locations, along one of the family’s favourite coastlines, Northumberland. That portfolio has since expanded to include Retreats on the Scottish Borders, Newcastle and County Durham.
Children are welcome at most of our properties, with a child-friendly rating system directing families to the most appropriate choices. Our most family-friendly Retreats have games rooms, toys, dressing up boxes, play gardens and a specially designed children’s bedroom. These can all help the family holiday run smoothly, whilst parents relax in inspiring surroundings. We also provide a complimentary cot, high chair or stair gate as standard for use during your stay, and many of our Retreats have additional equipment such as sterilisers to push chairs.
Why families love it
From houses by the sea to barn conversions, our Retreats have a unique starfish rating highlighting those most suitable for your family.
