Description

Immaculately presented throughout, this end-terraced Grade II cottage simply oozes character and charm. The owners, who live nearby, have paid great attention to detail whilst furnishing it, and the open plan living space on the ground floor has beautiful Karndean flooring. A wood burner ensures that a cosy welcome awaits guests regardless of the season.
Belford is a village well placed for exploring the area. With its own array of shops, pubs and a tea room, facilities are close at hand for the visitor, and golfers can practise their swing at the driving range. Trout fishing in relaxed surroundings can be enjoyed at Chatton, about 7 miles away, which offers four lakes. Other outdoor activities such as horse riding, cycling, and even hang gliding, can be found at Wooler, 10 miles. This small market town, known as the Gateway to the Cheviots, is popular with walkers, and the surrounding area offers outstanding scenery. For serious walkers, the more rigorous St Cuthbert’s Way passes close by.
Pretty villages are also in abundance, including Bamburgh, 6 miles, with its castle high on a rocky perch above the wide, golden sandy beach. Stunning Alnwick Castle, 15 miles away, is also worth a visit. As the backdrop of many films and TV programmes, this castle (together with its gardens and grand waterfall) draws many visitors, who can also experience dining in the largest treehouse restaurant in Europe.
For those wishing to venture further north, the A1 gives easy access to Berwick-on-Tweed, a border town with Elizabethan walls, and one of the finest examples of an 18th-century Palladian house, Paxton House. The River Tweed, which runs through the town, is known as one of the best rivers for salmon fishing.
Within an hour’s drive of The Corner House are vibrant Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Edinburgh, making this an excellent base from which to explore. Whether it is the north Northumbrian countryside to the west, the Heritage coastline (designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) to the east, or the Scottish Borders to the north, the choice is yours! Beach 6 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

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.
