About the local area

A further 3 miles up the coastline is the picturesque village of Bamburgh, which lies snuggled in the shadow of its majestic fortress and where Holy Island - the site of Lindisfarne Castle - can be seen from the wild expanse of golden, sandy beach. Just a few miles inland is the bustling market town of Alnwick, with its own dramatic castle, often referred to as 'The windsor of the North' and ancestral home to the Duke of Northumberland (film location for Harry Potter's Hogwarts Academy!) The Alnwick Garden - a spectacular contemporary interpretation of a formal garden and includes a Grand Cascade waterfall, a poison Garden and restaurant incorporated within the largest tree house in Europe is an interesting visitor attraction.
Noah's Ark is the perfect choice for those seeking a coastal retreat close to the harbour and who enjoy invigorating walks along the shoreline of one of the most glorious beaches in England - deservedly recognised as an Area of Outstanding Beauty. Noah's Ark sits close to Mermaids which can be booked individually or together to accommodate extended parties.
