Description

Sea View is an attractive stone-built terraced cottage situated on the eastern edge of Shilbottle. With open views across fields towards the sea on the horizon, this charming property enjoys a lovely homely ambience throughout. There is a cosy wood burner in the living room and the well-presented kitchen/dining room is also on the ground floor, and there are three bedrooms all with sea views and a shower room on the first floor. Shilbottle is located equidistant, being less than 4 miles away, between the historic market town of Alnwick and the pretty coastal village of Alnmouth. There is a variety of local facilities within this welcoming village all around ½ mile from Sea View, horse riding is available in the village as well as walks direct from the cottage.
There is also a wide array of amenities including a cinema/playhouse, restaurants, independent shops and a variety of pubs available within Alnwick. Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland, (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts!), is a popular visitor attraction, or visit the Alnwick Gardens; a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden, including a grand cascade waterfall and poison garden, and visitors can dine in the restaurant of the largest tree house in Europe. The picture postcard village of Alnmouth offers a variety of good restaurants, pubs and tea rooms. For sailing enthusiasts there are yachts available and small boat moorings within the sheltered estuary. Golf lovers will delight in the two courses close by; one being a fine 9-hole course adjacent to the beach and the other being a challenging 18-hole course at Foxton enjoying panoramic views.
Also, the towns of Warkworth and Amble are close by, both of which have excellent restaurants, pubs and shops. Visit the castle and beach in Warkworth, as well as the marina and quayside in Amble. From Amble, enjoy a boat trip round Coquet Island bird sanctuary.
Sea View is an excellent choice for those seeking a homely base that gives easy access to explore the beautiful 20-mile stretch of Heritage coastline designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the east and the wild and lonely expanses of the heather-capped Cheviot Hills to the west. Bus routes to Alnwick and Newcastle are available nearby and the Sustrans Cycle Route (route 1) is easily joined from the property. Good convenience store, pharmacy, post office ½ mile away. There is an Indian restaurant/takeaway and a pub 1 mile away.

About the local area

Alnwick is in the heart of Northumberland, famous for its unspoilt beauty, and is one of the most picturesque areas of countryside in England - with long sandy beaches, quiet friendly villages, the Simonside and Cheviot hills, well preserved medieval Castles, and gardens.

There are numerous Stately Homes in the area including the fantastic Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland and often referred to as "The Windsor of the north". The medieval market town originally prospered as a staging post, being only a day's ride from Berwick-upon-Tweed in the north and Newcastle upon Tyne in the south. It still retains many of its cobbled streets, narrow alleys and fine stone buildings which now house a range of specialist shops and family businesses as wells as some of what once totaled over 50 inns.

Alnwick Castle, the home of the Duke of Northumberland, provides a wonderful day out for all the family. It has magnificent spacious grounds designed by Capability Brown, domineering medieval towers, a 14th century dungeon, beautiful State Rooms and there are various museums covering the region's military and archaeological history. Next to the Castle is the spectacular Alnwick Garden where you can experience The Grand Cascade with its many weirs and fountains, The Ornamental Garden with more than 15,000 plants, The Rose Garden of walkways heavily scented with climbing and shrub roses, clematis and honeysuckle, and there are many 'secret' gardens where you can sit amongst the pergolas, fruit trees and individual pools. Because it is a continually developing garden with major projects always underway, it provides something new for those that return time after time.

The Alnwick countryside is also a great area for walking, short and long hikes, cycling, fishing, and in fact every kind of country pursuit. South east lies the valleys and heather topped expanses of Coquetdale and the Simonside Hills around Rothbury - a haven for hillwalkers and cyclists and a gateway to the Northumberland National Park.

The coastline of the Alnwick region consists of over 20 spectacular miles of golden sands, rocky outcrops and sand dunes which provide fun days out for all the family and peaceful beach strolls along the sweeping sands of Druridge Bay and Cresswell. Coastal villages include the lively harbour town of Amble, beautiful Warkworth with its magnificent castle, and picturesque Alnmouth, home of the oldest golf course in Britain.
