Lazy Puffin is a contemporary ground floor apartment situated in a block of six in the picture perfect coastal village of Beadnell. Set in the middle of another two blocks, these apartments are collectively known as Orchard Country Apartments and are idyllic retreats for couples. The accommodation within Lazy Puffin is immaculately presented throughout with a large, comfortable chaise sofa in the living room, granite worktops in the kitchen and a kingsize bed dressed in Egyptian cotton linen. Beadnell is a welcoming holiday village often acknowledged as the jewel in Northumberland’s seaside crown and where two pubs and a bistro serving foods are a mere gentle stroll from Lazy Puffin. The beautiful golden sands of Beadnell Bay are within walking distance and there are an extensive range of water sports, including sea kayaking, kite surfing and scuba diving readily available.
Only 2 miles north is the traditional port of Seahouses, where boat trips to the nearby Farne Islands – famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony – depart regularly. The village offers a further range of shops, pubs and tea rooms, and horse riding, fishing and golf are all available. A further 3 miles up the coastline is Bamburgh, which lies snuggled in the shadow of its majestic castle. Holy Island – the birthplace of Christianity and site of its impressive Lindisfarne Castle – can be seen from the wild expanse of sandy beach. Just a few miles inland is the historic market town of Alnwick with its own dramatic castle which is the ancestral home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy). Alnwick Garden boasts the largest tree house in Europe and is also a popular visitor attraction.
Lazy Puffin is the perfect choice for couples seeking contemporary holiday accommodation within close proximity to the sweeping vista of Beadnell Bay. The bay is nestled around rolling sand dunes and idyllic for those who enjoy strolling barefoot in the sand and listening to the waves lapping in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Beach 200 yards. Shop 200 yards, pub and restaurant 50 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.
