Description

Megstone is a lovely detached house, situated in a development of similar style properties, on the fringe of the traditional village of Seahouses. The accommodation is exceptionally well presented throughout and enjoys a bright and airy ambience. On the ground floor, a living room leads to a dining room and a good sized kitchen. There is also a useful utility room with a washing machine. The first floor offers a family bathroom along with four bedrooms; the master enjoying the convenience of an en-suite shower room.
Seahouses offers a wide array of facilities including tea rooms, restaurants, pubs and shops, all within easy walking distance of Megstone. Boat trips to the Farne Islands run from the nearby harbour – the islands are famous for their nesting seabirds and grey seal colonies. Horse riding is available only 200 yards away and there is an impressive golf course on the links close by. The picture postcard village of Bamburgh, protected by its dramatic fortress, is only 2 miles north with its wide expanse of golden, and often empty, sandy beaches. From here, the tidal island of Lindisfarne, locally known as Holy Island and the birth place of Christianity, can be viewed. A further two miles up the coastline brings you to Waren Mill, which is steeped in history. Once an important port, its harbour has long since disappeared, silted up beneath the sands of the estuary. Visit the bird sanctuary at Budle Bay, a haven for bird watchers! At low tide, a vast expanse of mud flats are the home to thousands of sea and land birds.
The inland market town of Alnwick, offers many facilities including its own castle. Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction with its grand cascade waterfall, and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe! Megstone offers excellent self-catering accommodation for families and friends who wish to explore the Heritage coastline designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Beach 300 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 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.
