Description

Just 10 minutes drive from the fabulous coast at Holy Island, and with a secluded outlook over a pretty woodland garden which slopes down to a tumbling stream, Spindlestone Cottage is a perfect romantic hideaway. The welcoming wood burner provides a toasty winter retreat while the glassed front and private sunny patio make the most of the sun whatever the season. The myths of Northumberland are portrayed on the beams of the cottage with the Spindlestone legend also on the outside beams. One of a pair of cottages, Spindlestone was once the byre of a smallholding but is now delightfully comfortable accommodation for couples with a superb choice of activities nearby; hillwalking in the Cheviots, cycling on quiet local roads, climbing at the famous Kyloe Crags, fishing and golf. The historic walled town of Berwick-on-Tweed is 10 miles and Alnwick with its splendid castle and gardens, 22 miles. Explore the glorious coast or head inland to the Border towns and villages. Edinburgh and Newcastle are under an hour by train from Berwick. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

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.
