Lindisfarne View is situated just over a mile from Belford where there are local facilities available. A picturesque ten mile drive west takes you to the small, welcoming town of Wooler (known locally as Glendale - the inspiration for ’Postman Pat’s Greendale!), which sits at the foot of the wild and lonely heather capped Cheviot Hills. This is a popular destination for those who enjoy cycling, golf, horse riding and walking - the challenging route of the ’St Cuthbert’s Way’ runs close by.
Bamburgh, dominated by its majestic fortress which commands the power and presence of the seasoned film set it regularly becomes is edged by a beautiful expanse of golden, sandy beach and less than 7 miles east from Lindisfarne View. A mile or so up the coastline is Waren Mill; a hamlet steeped in history. Once an important port, its harbour has long since disappeared, silted up beneath the sands of the estuary. Budle Bay is a bird sanctuary and at low tide a vast expanse of mud flats is the home to countless thousands of sea and land birds making this location a haven for ornithologists. Take time to visit the elegant Georgian town of Berwick which straddles the salmon rich River Tweed only 15 miles north. The cobbled, market town of Alnwick, protected by its own dramatic castle is 16 miles south. Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction to admire the Grand Cascade Waterfall and dine in the restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe.
This is England’s borderland and often described as ’the secret kingdom’. The Scottish Borders are only 20 miles north making Lindisfarne View a decadent retreat to explore the Northumbrian countryside and the 20 miles of Heritage coastline designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty along with easy access to the Scottish Borders too.
