About Cottages Near a Good Pub

We operate our own self catering holiday cottages near a pub in Northumberland.

Only a 10 minute walk away is award winning Star Inn – one of only twelve pubs in the UK to have appeared in every single issue of the Campaign for Real Ale’s Good Beer Guide since it was first published in 1974.  The Star has been in the same family since 1917 and a visit is an unforgettable experience, almost like stepping back in time.  Several of our guests stay in our cottages twice a year just to catch up with Vera, the octogenarian landlady.

Needless to say a visit to a good pub can be the highlight of a holiday, and helping to secure the future of these fast-disappearing social hubs must be a good thing.

In late 2013 we created The Cottage Cooperative, which has a number of websites like this one to help guests find the exact type of cottage they want.  Cottages listed on our websites are owned by like-minded members who abide by a genuine code of advertising and are committed to offering a high quality service to guests.

For this reason there will never be hundreds of cottages on this website, but as members must agree to our standards before advertising, you should enjoy more peace of mind when booking.  We may well not yet have a cottage of the size you require in the area you want, but please check back as membership is growing slowly but surely.

All of the cottages listed in the Holiday Cottages Near a Good Pub collection are listed on the understanding that it takes no more than a 20 minute walk to get to a local pub worthy of a visit.  The cottage either is that close to the pub or it simply isn’t – it’s not rocket science.
