Description

Moor View sits amidst a small terrace of four, nestled on an 800-acre working farm on the outskirts of the friendly village of Belford, and has recently undergone a total makeover to provide delightful holiday accommodation.
There are lovely uninterrupted views across moorland from the rear of the cottage and far reaching views towards Bamburgh and the coast from the front. The master bedroom enjoys the convenience of en-suite shower facilities. Belford is located just over a mile away and is often described as “the Gateway to the Secret Kingdom”. It offers many facilities including shops, a tea room, and pubs renowned for serving delicious food along with an impressive golf driving range. The picture postcard coastal village of Bamburgh, dominated by its majestic fortress and wide expanse of golden, sandy sweeping beach is a mere 6 miles east. The small and friendly market town of Wooler sits at the foot of the Cheviot Hills 10 miles west; a popular destination for those who enjoy cycling, hang-gliding, golf, horse-riding and walking – the challenging route of the ‘St Cuthbert’s Way’ runs close by. Chatton Trout Fishery invites amateur anglers to fish without a rod licence in a picturesque 4-acre lake close by. The elegant Georgian town of Berwick which straddles the salmon-rich River Tweed is 15 miles to the north, and the cobbled, market town of Alnwick, protected by its dramatic castle is a similar distance to the south where there is a wide array of amenities available. Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction to see the Grand Cascade Waterfall and dine in the restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe! Take a trip to the vibrant cities of Newcastle upon Tyne or Edinburgh; both are only an hour’s drive or enjoy the journey by train from Berwick or Alnmouth.
Moor View offers delightful single storey accommodation in an excellent rural location making a great base to explore the north Northumbrian countryside to the west along with the Heritage coastline designated as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the east and the Scottish Borders north.

About the local area

The idyllic country village of Bamburgh, ancient royal seat of the kings of Northumbria, is set in one of the most breathtakingly picturesque coastal regions in the UK. With trips to the Farne Island Group so close at hand from nearby Seahouses, Bamburgh is certainly one of the most sough after coastal destinations on the Northumberland coast.

The main attraction in Bamburgh is of course Bamburgh Castle, one of Northumberland's most iconic buildings. Spanning nine acres of land on its rocky plateau high above the Northumberland coastline Bamburgh it is one of the largest inhabited castles in the country and has won awards in the North East Large Visitor Attraction Awards and the Green Business Scheme. To prove its universal appeal, the castle was recently a finalist in TV's Britain's Favorite View competition.

A visit to this area is not complete without a trip to Lindisfarne (Holy Island), a tidal island which can only be accessed across the causeway when the tidal conditions allow. Holy Island has a national reputation as a wildlife haven and is home to a national nature reserve. As well as numerous rare birds, you may even spot the grey seal that are resident on the nearby Farne Islands all year round.

Dramatically perched on a rocky crag is Lindisfarne Castle is a small fortress first built in 1550 and today is looked after by the National Trust. Accessible over the causeway is at low tide only, and the island castle presents an exciting and alluring aspect.
