Description

Blue Caps is a beautiful detached property nestled in a peaceful cul-de-sac within the heart of the welcoming coastal village of Beadnell. Furnished and equipped to a very good standard this deceptively spacious cottage oozes the epitome of style. The large open plan living space centres upon a welcoming woodburner ensuring Blue Caps is a cosy choice regardless of the season. French doors lead to a fully enclosed south-facing patio area; an idyllic spot to dine alfresco. The contemporary dining/kitchen areas are very well equipped. With four spacious double bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms too, Blue Caps is a particularly suitable choice for extended parties. Two of the bedrooms (one king and one twin) are located at one ‘wing’ of the property leading from the living room, whereas the other two bedrooms (one king and one twin) are at the other, leading from the dining area – making this unique layout ideal for the gathering of families and friends alike. Beadnell is a popular holiday destination and offers local facilities including family and pet friendly pubs serving good food all within a gentle stroll from Blue Caps. A small sandy bay speckled with rocky outcrops is close by and leads to a long sandy beach that stretches to Seahouses, 2 miles north. The wide expanse of golden sandy beach Beadnell Bay is renowned for is a mere 10-minutes walk: a popular destination for water-sports enthusiasts, including sailing, sea kayaking, wind surfing and scuba diving. Beadnell Bay can truly be described as the jewel in Northumberland’s seaside crown; idyllic for a romantic barefoot stroll in the sand to listen to the waves lap against the shoreline and inhale the invigorating sea air. Two miles up the coastline is the traditional fishing port of Seahouses, where boat trips to the nearby Farne Islands – famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony – depart regularly from its harbour. Here there are several charming tea rooms, quaint pubs and shops with horse-riding; fishing and golf on the links close by being only a sample of the many amenities available in this popular location. A further 3 miles up the coastline is the picturesque village of Bamburgh, which lies snuggled in the shadow of its majestic fortress and commands the power and presence of the seasoned television set it regularly becomes. Holy Island – the birthplace of Christianity and site of Lindisfarne Castle – can be seen from the unspoilt golden, sandy beach. Just a few miles inland is the bustling market town of Alnwick, with its own dramatic castle (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy!). Visitors will enjoy a trip to Alnwick Garden – a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden including the Grand Cascade waterfall and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe! Beach 400 yards. Shop 300 yards, pubs and restaurants 400 yards.

About the local area

One of the most popular holiday areas on the north east coast, Beadnell consists of three villages in one, Beadnell Harbour, the old Beadnell Village and Beadnell Haven.

The main attractions at Beadnell include its magnificent golden sandy beach, limekilns, small harbour, beautiful coastline, and views to the distant Cheviot Hills. During holiday times the beach is very popular with watersports enthusiasts that like to go diving, sailing, windsurfing, sea canoeing and waterskiing.

Countless coastal walks provide breathtaking views along this Heritage Coastline, especially between Holy Island and Alnmouth, with Beadnell being mid-way. Ramblers will delight in the miles of unspoilt footpaths, splendid beach and country walks. The varied terrain is easily accessible by foreshore and footpaths.

Just along the coast from Beadnell is the town of Seahouses where you can catch the boat over to the Farne Islands.

Once used as a pilgrimage for medieval monks, the Farne Islands are now a cherished destination for nature lovers from across the globe. The cliffs, stacks and grassy tops of this rocky group of islands come alive with sea birds between April and early August. Around 20 different species, as many as 100,000 birds in total, make their home here during the breeding season every year. Some of the birds you are most likely to see on the Islands include Puffins, Razorbill, Guillemots, Eider Duck, and Oystercatchers. The Farne Islands are also the habitat for some interesting and unusual plants. Several of the islands are covered with a layer of light peat, where most of the islands' vegetation is found. Common species to look out for include Borage, Survey Grass, Silverweed and Sorrel.

As well as offering the chance to access to Farne Islands Seahouses also has an abundance of things to do and see including bird watching, horse riding, golfing, cycling and watersports as well as gardens, castles and beaches to visit.
