How to Plan the Ultimate Staycation

Whether you’re spending precious time with the little ones during their school holidays or escaping the pressures of daily life, plan a memorable staycation with the help of Stablewood Coastal Cottages.

Tip 1: Explore

From beautiful Budle Bay and picturesque Bamburgh, to the rugged folds of the Cheviots, there are so many breath-taking locations across Northumberland for the whole family to explore. Wherever your adventure takes you, make sure you are picnic-ready with The Northumbrian Hamper, a lovely shop in Seahouses that sells treats and tipples from over 50 local producers.

Discover our award-winning region with a wicker picnic basket in hand, ensuring you are expertly fixed with glassware, cutlery and crockery to equip you on your travels. Embrace your holiday with everything you could possibly need for a picnic – from the cosiest picnic rugs to cool-bags for tempting treats and refreshments. Nothing completes a picnic quite like locally sourced produce in our opinion. As you explore all that The Northumbrian Hamper has to offer, keep your eyes peeled for a few of our personal favourites: chocolate bars from North ChocolatesHadrian’s Wall Gin and cheese from Doddington Dairy.

Tip 2: Unwind

A staycation is the perfect excuse to unwind. Take a break and relax with our complimentary welcome gifts. Sit back and sip on a warming cup of tea while you tuck in to the irresistible handmade biscuits.

As you wind down, indulge yourself in a little – or lot – of our very own Lucker Gold, a smooth ale made just for us by our friends at Alnwick Brewery.

Put your feet up and dive into that book you’ve been meaning to read or take your relaxation outdoors and breath in that fresh coastal air.

Tip 3: Indulge

Set the stresses of daily life aside and indulge in a little down time at the spa. Upon arrival, each Stablewood Coastal Cottage guest is given a complimentary one-hour pass for either the swimming pool or fitness suite at Beau Monde Salon & Spa, an oasis of serenity in the heart of Lucker. 

Take advantage of the facilities at your leisure, and experience the sauna, steam room, hot tub and pool. Make the most of your visit and indulge in some well-deserved pampering – Beau Monde offer our guests 10% off services, treatments and luxury spa days, complete with fizz, afternoon tea and a deluxe 90-minute treatment.
