Description

Spindlestone Mill is nestled in a tranquil setting, situated just over a mile inland from the stunning coastline this beautiful region is renowned for. This original mill and grain store has been cleverly converted into lovely holiday apartments (refs UK3161, UK3162, UK3163 & UK3164), which can be booked individually or together to accommodate a gathering of families and friends. Each apartment has a private patio, creating an idyllic spot to relax and listen to the rush of the water.
Waren Mill is close by and 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 home to countless sea and land birds making this location a haven for birdwatchers. The picture postcard village of Bamburgh, protected by its dramatic castle, is less than 3 miles away with its wide expanse of golden, often empty, sandy beaches. The tidal island of Lindisfarne, locally known as Holy Island, can also be viewed from this lovely village. A warm welcome greets guests to Belford, which offers many facilities including a golf driving range, just 3 miles away. Take a boat trip to the Farne Islands, famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony, from the harbour in the traditional fishing village of Seahouses, or enjoy the local pastimes of horse riding and golf on the links, just 5 miles down the seashore. The market town of Alnwick with its castle, offers many facilities, as well as Alnwick Garden, which is a popular visitor attraction for all ages.
In a peaceful, rural setting these apartments properties give guests an easy opportunity to also indulge in the simple pleasure of strolling through the sand of the Northumberland Heritage Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Beach 1½ miles. Shops, pubs and restaurants 3 miles.
The Gearings can be booked together with The Loft (ref UK3161), The Grain Rooms (ref UK3162) and Wheel Rooms (UK3164) to accommodate up to 26 guests.

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.
