Usually the lodge will be open with the keys inside ready for you to make yourselves comfortable on arrival, if we happen to be in we will of course come and say hi, but you are on holiday so we will not encroach on your precious time out. If you do need anything or any advise which isn't covered in the information within the Lodge please do catch us as you see us flitting about the place or just come and knock on our door, we're always happy to help!

We stayed here for a long weekend. The location was good as it was in easy reach to Alnwick and beaches. The downside was we didn’t realise it was above a garage and the ceilings were all very low, we kept bumping our heads. The...More

About the neighbourhood
Longhoughton is a coastal village a few minutes drive from the ancient market town of Alnwick. The villages of Boulmer, Lesbury and Alnmouth are also all within a couple of miles. We are right on Cycle Route 1, the coastal driving route and with fabulous sandy bays on our doorstep. The village is a working village with popular school and community centre. There is a Hairdressers, Co-Op supermarket, Church and Doctors Surgery. Just opposite Birdsong Lodge is a lane and a lovely walk up to Longhoughton old Quarry, a flooded quarry which is serene and beautiful especially in the spring time. Walking out of our driveway, turn left at the top and left again...one mile down to Howdimont Sands and Sugar Sands Bay. Arguably the best of the beaches
Getting around
The bus route that runs through the village takes you into Alnwick, or up to Seahouses via Craster. Cycle route 1 quite literally is on our doorstep.
