Watersedge in Warkworth
A Gorgeous River-Front Cottage on the Banks of the Coquet in Warkworth
We are delighted to welcome the beautifully situated Watersedge to our collection of privately-owned, gorgeous holiday homes in Warkworth. Overlooking the River Coquet, this lovely family home embraces space and modern-living, yet has everything you need to embrace village life right on your doorstep.
Not only is this cottage incredibly well-positioned within the popular and very pretty village of Warkworth, it’s perfect for a family or friends looking to holiday together without living on top of each other. With three bedrooms each with their own bathroom, it’s ideal for couples.
The decor is homely and very comfortable, especially with the gas real-flame-effect fire being the main focus in the lounge. 2 well-behaved dogs are welcome.
Watersedge sleeps 6 guests comfortably in 3 bedrooms. 2 of the bedrooms are downstairs and 1 bedroom is upstairs. The downstairs bedrooms are a double bedroom and a twin bedroom. One of the bedrooms has an en suite and there is also a family bathroom. The master bedroom with en suite is on the first floor.
There is a laundry room and small patio area downstairs with access out to the rear lane.
The living area is open plan and on the first floor to benefit from the river views. The lounge area is very spacious and focuses on the large gas flame fire. 1 large or 2 medium size, well-behaved dogs are welcome at Watersedge.
The entrance into Watersedge is into an inner hall to leave coats and boots, then into the spacious main hallway with the wooden staircase leading to the living area upstairs. The 2 ground floor bedrooms, the family bathroom and the laundry room is accessed from this hallway.
This bedroom faces onto The Stanners and is lovely and bright. There’s lots of storage and plenty of space. The twin single beds are 3ft wide. Luxury linens and fluffy white towels provided, as well as a hair dryer.
The bathroom has a free standing bath and a large shower cubicle with small step up. There is a wash hand basin, WC and heated towel rail.
Double Bedroom & En-suite Shower Room
The second bedroom on the ground floor has a double bed (4ft 6″ wide). It’s spacious and has plenty of storage. The en suite has a shower cubicle with a small step up, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and WC.
The spacious laundry room is a great place for storing overflow bags and even better for dogs to sleep in at night, or to dry off after a walk on the beach! There’s a washing machine, separate tumble dryer, big sink and plenty of surface space. There is also a second fridge in here, in addition to the fridge in the kitchen upstairs. The iron and ironing board are stored here too.
Ground Floor Patio
There is a door out to the rear patio on the ground floor, accessed from the laundry room. The rear patio leads out to the lane at the back of the cottage. There isn’t an area to sit out here as it’s used purely for functional reasons – as there is a balcony upstairs – but the refuse bins are kept here and it’s great to use this entrance when coming in from a walk if you have muddy shoes or wet dogs, rather than entering into the main hallway.
Up the wooden staircase you reach the open plan living area with exposed beams in the tall ceiling. Here, you have the lounge area, dining kitchen and the master bedroom, as well as the balcony.
The kitchen is very well equipped with solid oak units and granite work surfaces. Here you can find all of the usual appliances such as a fridge, freezer, electric oven, gas hob, gas grill, microwave, toaster, kettle and dishwasher.
The dining table seats 6 and is lovely for gathering for brunch and evening meals.
The very spacious lounge is focused around the Scandinavian-style gas fire, which is a gorgeous focus in the room. There is a large, flat screen TV with DVD player, BT vision and BT sport, plenty of board games and DVD’s and a Bluetooth speaker. There are 3 sofas with plenty of room for everyone to spread out for a comfy night in front of the fire.
Master Bedroom & en suite
The master bedroom has a double size bed with 4ft 6″ mattress, lots of storage space, luxury linens and fluffy towels. There’s a TV too with Freeview and a hairdryer is provided. The en suite has a shower cubicle with a small step up, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and WC.
The small balcony has a table and chairs for enjoying the sun in the warmer months. It’s accessed from the lounge area and is very private.

Map & Local Area
Watersedge is in a gorgeous location within the equally gorgeous Warkworth Village. Voted the prettiest village in Northumberland, it’s not hard to see why.
Watersedge is a few yards from the banks of the river Coquet, which loops around the village as an oxbow river. You can walk around this river on a walk called ‘The Mill Walk’, which begins less than 20 yards from the front door of Watersedge. This gorgeous walk wraps around the very bottom of the castle hill and also past English Heritage Site, The Hermitage.
Alternatively, you can walk to Warkworth beach just 15 minutes away on foot. This 5 mile stretch of golden sandy beach is dog friendly all year round. Walk to the south and you will see the beautiful Amble harbour. Walk to the north and you reach Birling rocks with views over to Alnmouth and its row of ‘Balamory’ coloured houses.
The village of Warkworth has 4 great dog-friendly pubs, 4 restaurants, 2 cafes and a handful of gorgeous gift shops and an art gallery. Warkworth Castle stands proud at the top of the village which is open for visits.
Watersedge is perfect for a family or a group of friends to enjoy a taste of Northumbrian village life.

Tips from a local
On the outskirts of the village there is a stunning, hidden gem known by the locals as Black Bridge. Pass over the bridge to find a lovely little walk surrounded by luscious greenery. In the warmer months, this is a great spot for a paddle, a picnic and a spot of sunbathing. Be sure to keep an eye out for the rope swing too!
To find Black Bridge, head out along the Mill Walk from the cottage door, and follow the river right the way along past the hermitage. Head up the steep hill when the river path stops (passing by the waterworks on your right) and turn right on to Watersaugh Road. Follow this road right the way down to the bridge and caravan park. Turn left when you’ve crossed the bridge to head towards the rope swing, picturesque fields and riverbank walk.
Please note, if you’d prefer to drive to Black Bridge, there is a ford you can drive across, however it is essential you only attempt this at low tide, when the river is low and calm. This is again at the end of Watersaugh Road.

Visit Morwick Ice Cream Parlour
Just 2 miles from Watersedge, you’ll find a lovely little Ice Cream Parlour, sat right by the working dairy farm. Not only can you purchase their delicious, “Royal Double” range of ice creams, available in traditional cones, pots and even large take home packs, but you can see how it is made on site through the parlour viewing window. They also offer range of deliciously refreshing fruit ices, teas and freshly ground coffee. There is a carpark at the Parlour, a fun outdoor play area and plenty of outdoor picnic benches.
Please note, Morwick Ice Cream Parlour doesn’t have a card machine so be sure to take cash with you to avoid disappointment.

Have a go at Stand-Up Paddle Boarding!
If you fancy trying your hand at something a bit different, this is absolutely fantastic for a fun morning or afternoon out. Jon Nolan offers individual and group SUP lessons from Amble, and can bring you up the estuary to Warkworth Village, take you out on Druridge Bay Lake, or even take you out in the sea on Warkworth Beach. Once you’ve found your balance on your water legs(!), it’s a lovely, relaxing sport and a great way to view the surrounding scenery, from a whole new view point!
