We all need a little break now and again to unwind from daily stresses, whether that be going abroad on holiday or having a weekend break in the UK. Based in Northumberland in the North East of England lies Cheviot Holiday Cottages, which are a collection of luxury holiday cottages including cottages for couples and Northumbrian self-catering holiday cottages.

The latest addition to the cottages is the retreat holiday cottage ideal for couples who are wanting a romantic getaway. The one bedroom cottage has been awarded the Enjoy England 5 Star Gold Award which emphasises the quality of the cottage. What makes this cottage special is the 5 metre swim-spa with twin Jacuzzi inside of the cottage, the private indoor swim-spa pool is overlooked from the kitchen which is separated by full height glass. For the cooler nights, the romantic escape retreat has an open fireplace upstairs in the oak-floored lounge which overlooks the Northumbrian countryside. The bedroom has a super-king sized bed with a luxury en-suite which has a wet room with a double-ended shower head. As well as all of the luxuries within the cottage, you have your own south facing patio and garden which is perfect for watching the wildlife on a morning as you have your breakfast. The romantic Northumberland retreat cottage comes with a pair of quality bicycles too so you can explore the woodlands and Cheviot hills; if you’re more adventurous you can follow one of the many trails leading to surrounding towns such as Alnwick or visit Seahouses and the Farne Islands.

If you’re wanting a family trip with the October school holidays approaching, Cheviot Holiday Cottages offer Northumbrian self-catering holiday cottages such as the Barley Mill which sleeps up to six people. This detached cottage was chosen by Visit Britain to set the example for the nationwide quality assessment scheme and the property overlooks the Cheviot Hills, Ingram Valley and St Michaels. To keep the children entertained there is a 40 inch flat screen TV on the wall with a DVD player, and in the other lounge there is a fireplace and log-burning stove, ideal for the cooler autumn and winter nights soon approaching.
