Holiday Rental House
This 3 bed family house in the picturesque village of Longhoughton has fantastic sea views from the rear, a large fenced garden and is but a short walk to one of the finest and secluded beaches on the Northumberland Coast. Our location is ideal for walkers, cyclists, surfers and those who want to experience village life. We welcome families with children and can also cater for families with four legged friends. Arosfa House is superbly located at the beginning of a country lane which leads directly to the sheltered and secluded 'Sugar Sands' beach, this beach has been voted by the Independant and Telegraph as one of the best beaches in Britain, and the best kept secret in Northumberland.

Our location is ideal for walkers, cyclists, surfers and those who want to experience village life. We welcome families with children and can also cater for families with four legged friends. Arosfa House is superbly located at the beginning of a country lane which leads directly to the sheltered and secluded 'Sugar Sands' beach, this beach has been voted by the Independant and Telegraph as one of the best beaches in Britain, and the best kept secret in Northumberland. The rear of the house looks out onto farmland with fantastic views of the sea. Our home has a large fenced garden so ideal for children and the family dog to play. We have a lean to attached to the house which has a coat rack for wet clothes, towels for drying dogs, a tumble dryer and a secured bike rack for our cyclist guests. Parking is also not a problem with off street private parking directly outside the front door, enough for two / three cars. We have an outdoor hose and towels for taking care of mucky dogs so do not worry if they play in the sea. Sorry but we do not allow pets to go upstairs or sit on furniture. We welcome dogs in our home however they must be accompanied by responsible owners, if you like your pet on the sofa please bring a throw to protect it, and PLEASE ensure you clean any mess from the garden, our next guests may have small children and unfortunately the pet fee does not cover Rebecca the housekeeper or Ken the gardener picking up dog mess, if after your stay dog mess is found in the garden you will be notified and a charge of £10 will be levied against your deposit. As dog owners ourselves we think this is fair and not too much to ask. The housekeeper will make the beds depending on the amount of guests booked, however If only two persons are staying the housekeeper will prepare the main bed and small bed with bedding. Downstairs flooring is laminated and tiled, whilst upstairs is carpeted.

Twisting cobbled streets with an eclectic collection of individual shops are teamed with some of the country’s top attractions, including Alnwick Castle Dubbed the Windsor of the North, Alnwick Castle was the location for Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films. Home of the Percy family and Dukes of Northumberland since 1309, alongside is the Duchess of Northumberland’s blooming marvellous creation – The Alnwick Garden. Dine among the treetops of The Alnwick Garden in the fairytale setting of one of the world’s largest tree houses.
