The Watch Tower of this tastefully converted Grade II listed Norman mill is nestled within the picture postcard hamlet of Waren Mill and commands spectacular views across Budle Bay towards the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Access to this top floor property is via a private entrance leading up a flight of stairs to its main independent entrance. It has three bedrooms (en-suite to the master) and a family bathroom too. The Watch Tower is suitable for the gathering of families and friends, as well as those couples seeking a quirky retreat. The open plan living space is on the top floor where the spectacular views and vast array of sea birds can be admired.
Waren Mill and its surrounding area are 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 a haven for birdwatchers. The picture postcard village of Bamburgh, protected by its dramatic fortress, which has been a backdrop for several TV and film locations, is only 2 miles away. It has a wide expanse of golden, and often empty sandy beaches, where the tidal island of Lindisfarne, locally known as Holy Island, and the birth place of Christianity in the England, can also be viewed. A warm welcome greets guests to Belford, which offers many facilities including a golf driving range and is only 3 miles further inland.
Seahouses is a busy fishing village, with its harbour and boat trips to the Farne Islands, famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony, and always worth a visit. Try one of the many fish and chip restaurants in the town after enjoying a round of golf on the links, 5 miles down the shoreline. The market town of Alnwick, 15 miles, has a majestic castle and Alnwick Gardens with its Grande Cascade waterfall makes a lovely way to spend the day. The Watch Tower offers a superb coastal retreat in a peaceful setting giving guests an easy opportunity to indulge in the simple pleasure of strolling on the beach and enjoying the sea air, while watching the waves lap the shore of this stunning stretch of Heritage Coastline. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
