Horse riding can be arranged one mile away and boat trips to the nearby Farne Islands - famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony - depart regularly. A further 3 miles up the coastline is the picturesque village of Bamburgh, which lies snuggled in the shadow of its majestic fortress and where Holy Island can be seen from the wild expanse of golden, sandy beach. Around 12 miles inland is the bustling market town of Alnwick, with its own dramatic castle, often referred to as ’The Windsor of the North’ and ancestral home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy!). A wonderful tourist attraction is Alnwick Garden - a spectacular contemporary interpretation of a formal garden, which includes the Grand Cascade waterfall, a Poison Garden and the largest tree house in Europe!
Low Tide is a superb choice for those seeking a coastal retreat within walking distance of ample facilities and who enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the waves crashing against the seashore of one of the most glorious beaches in England - deservedly recognised as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
