The Farne Islands with its famous National Trust seabird colony is a short sail from Seahouses. Beautiful Bamburgh is frequently rated as one of the top ten beaches in the U.K. A mere two miles away is award winning picturesque Warkworth village with its golf course, restaurants, inns, small shops, river, beach and ancient castle. Boat trips to the RSPB reserve on Coquet Island leave from Amble, three miles away. Historic Alnwick with its spectacular garden and castle, recently showcased in Harry Potter films, is within easy reach (five miles). The bus to Alnwick passes the entrance to the grounds. Historic sites galore and contrasting coast and country offer a holiday full of variety in this charming family run cottage. Cleanliness, standards and attention to detail are very important to us and are personally supervised by the owner Carole Ann. We have been providing accommodation for 9 years and take pride in the cottage. We love to share our knowledge of the area and places to visit Dark Sky Friendly assessment from Northumberland Tourism.More
