The leafy course is lush and green and very well maintained. The clubhouse serves hearty food and has a bar too, perfect for a just a drink or dining out.
As well as the immediate area being beautiful, Burgham Park is in a superb central location, just minutes from the A1, putting the whole of Northumberland – particularly the Heritage Coastline – in easy reach. The historic towns of both Alnwick & Morpeth are just 15 minutes away in either direction and there’s even a good privately-run animal park just down the road, which is perfect for families! Golden Poppy Cottage has something for everyone.

Map & Local Area
Golden Poppy Cottage is a stone-built luxury holiday cottage located within the grounds of prestigious Burgham Park Golf Course, so the situation is very quiet and peaceful, yet still so close to many of Northumberland’s gorgeous chocolate-box villages and interesting market towns, as well as the dramatically beautiful Northumberland Heritage Coastline.
The nearest village is the quaint and leafy village of Felton, most well-known for the artisan cafe, The Running Fox. Book in advance for fabulous afternoon tea and breakfasts – it’s incredibly popular! Their deli is irresistible with lots of delicious treats for dining in or taking home.
The nearest pub is the Northumberland Arms, also in Felton (a couple of miles up the road). This very popular pub serves fantastic food and a great selection of local ales in their newly renovated bar. Sunday lunch and dinner is served until 9pm on Sundays.
If you have children with you (or not!) pop over to the Eshott Animal Park just at the opposite site of the A1 to Burgham Park. This privately-run small zoo doesn’t have lions or tigers, but very interesting birds, wallaby’s, foxes and the most gorgeous donkeys. They even have a mini ‘race track’ with electric cars for children to play, as well as a little cafe.
The coast is just 18 minutes drive away at beautiful Druridge Bay and Country Park. There’s lots to explore whilst staying Golden Poppy Cottage and the location is perfect to easily reach the coast and country in Northumberland.
The clubhouse of the golf club is open until the early evening for bar meals and drinks, which is less than a 5 minute walk from the cottage. The golf course offers special deals for guests of Golden Poppy Cottage wishing to play on the course – more information will be available soon.
