Description

Merrywind is a handsome detached property commanding incredible sea views in the highly sought after holiday village of Beadnell and is only 20 yards from the beach. Following a complete makeover throughout, this spacious property offers stylish and immaculate self-catering accommodation to a luxurious standard. The L-shaped open plan living area enjoys the friendly comfort of a wood-burning stove, idyllic to nestle in front of and watch the dramatic sea views from the large picture windows. The dining area leads to a cosy sun room, a pleasant space to relax and look out onto the rear garden. The contemporary kitchen is very well-appointed and there is also the convenience of a shower room on the ground floor. All three bedrooms are positioned on the first floor, two with sea views and one with the convenience of en-suite shower facilities. There is also an immaculate and fresh family bathroom. A fully enclosed garden makes a great place for children and dogs to play whilst dining alfresco and listening to the waves lap against the shoreline.

Beadnell is a well known holiday destination which offers local facilities including a village shop and family friendly pubs serving good food. Beadnell Bay is a glorious stretch of golden sandy beach and can truly be described as the jewel in Northumberland’s seaside crown; idyllic for a romantic barefoot stroll in the sand to listening to the waves lap against the shoreline and inhale the invigorating sea air. It’s also popular for watersports enthusiasts including sailing, sea kayaking, wind surfing and scuba diving. A small sandy bay speckled with rocky outcrops is a stone’s throw from Merrywind and leads to a long sandy beach that stretches two miles to the traditional fishing port of Seahouses where boat trips to the nearby Farne Islands, famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony, depart regularly from its harbour. Seahouses offers several charming tea rooms, amusements and shops with horse riding, fishing and golf on the links close by being only a sample of the many amenities available in this popular location. A further three miles up the coastline is the picturesque village of Bamburgh, which lies snuggled in the shadow of its majestic fortress and commands the power and presence of the seasoned television set it regularly becomes. Holy Island, the birthplace of Christianity and site of Lindisfarne Castle, can be seen from the unspoilt golden, sandy beach. Just a few miles inland is the bustling market town of Alnwick, with its own dramatic castle (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy!). Visitors will enjoy a trip to Alnwick Garden, a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden including the Grand Cascade waterfall and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe!

With three bedrooms and three shower facilities, Merrywind is an excellent choice for the gathering of families and friends seeking a prestigious coastal retreat to rest and refresh with easy access to one of the most glorious beaches in Northumberland, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

About the local area

One of the most popular holiday areas on the north east coast, Beadnell consists of three villages in one, Beadnell Harbour, the old Beadnell Village and Beadnell Haven.

The main attractions at Beadnell include its magnificent golden sandy beach, limekilns, small harbour, beautiful coastline, and views to the distant Cheviot Hills. During holiday times the beach is very popular with watersports enthusiasts that like to go diving, sailing, windsurfing, sea canoeing and waterskiing.

Countless coastal walks provide breathtaking views along this Heritage Coastline, especially between Holy Island and Alnmouth, with Beadnell being mid-way. Ramblers will delight in the miles of unspoilt footpaths, splendid beach and country walks. The varied terrain is easily accessible by foreshore and footpaths.

Just along the coast from Beadnell is the town of Seahouses where you can catch the boat over to the Farne Islands.

Once used as a pilgrimage for medieval monks, the Farne Islands are now a cherished destination for nature lovers from across the globe. The cliffs, stacks and grassy tops of this rocky group of islands come alive with sea birds between April and early August. Around 20 different species, as many as 100,000 birds in total, make their home here during the breeding season every year. Some of the birds you are most likely to see on the Islands include Puffins, Razorbill, Guillemots, Eider Duck, and Oystercatchers. The Farne Islands are also the habitat for some interesting and unusual plants. Several of the islands are covered with a layer of light peat, where most of the islands' vegetation is found. Common species to look out for include Borage, Survey Grass, Silverweed and Sorrel.

As well as offering the chance to access to Farne Islands Seahouses also has an abundance of things to do and see including bird watching, horse riding, golfing, cycling and watersports as well as gardens, castles and beaches to visit.
