About the local area

The location of The Lookout is sublime! Boulmer (pronounced Boomer) is a particularly peaceful coastal village with very little through traffic.Once the haunt of smugglers it is one of the true Northumbrian fishing villages which remains virtually untouched by time. Meander along the waters edge and watch the fishermen return with their daily catch of lobsters, crabs and salmon.
A mere 6 miles inland from The Lookout is the historic market town of Alnwick, dominated by its dramatic fortress it offers a wide range of amenities including a playhouse/cinema, indoor swimming and an excellent array of restaurants, shops, tea rooms and pubs. Take time to visit Barter Books (one of the largest second hand bookshops in Britain) or discover the magnificent Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts!). Alnwick Garden; a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden, including a grand cascade waterfall and poison garden where guests can dine in the restaurant of the largest tree house in Europe is also well worth a visit.
Less than 3 miles walk along the beach is the picture postcard village of Alnmouth where a variety of good restaurants, pubs, tea rooms and gift shops for the discerning visitor can be enjoyed. Sailing enthusiasts have available yacht and small boat moorings within the sheltered estuary. Golfing enthusiasts will delight in the two courses close by; one being a fine 9 hole course adjacent to he beach and the other being a challenging 18 hole course at Foxton enjoying panoramic views. The Lookout is situated on National Cycle Route 1 making this property particularly suitable for keen cyclists with excellent storate for bikes and equipment being readily available.
The Lookout is perfectly situated to explore four Northumberland Castles of Alnwick, Bamburgh, Warkworth and Dunstanburgh. It is an ideal base from which to tour the stately homes of the Borders. En route, to sample the delights of the famous Craster kippers is Howick Hall, the ancestral home of Earl Grey. Within three miles of The Lookout, Howick Hall has magnificent grounds, and the opportunity to enjoy Earl Grey tea at the tea shop.
The Lookout is superbly placed for those seeking a peaceful retreat in an idyllic setting yet all within a two minute walk to the seashore of the beautiful Northumbrian coastline designated as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
