Description

Quay Cottage is positioned right on the harbour of the traditional fishing port of Seahouses and boasts stunning sea views across to the Farne Islands. The location of this adorable cottage is sublime. A quintessential fisherman’s cottage, the property has been restored to provide homely and tastefully furnished self-catering accommodation whilst offering a unique setting. The accommodation within Quay Cottage is beautifully presented with much thought, care and attention to the finer details. Both double bedrooms and the shower room are on the ground floor with the open plan living space on the first floor to capture the amazing sea views. A balcony leads from the living room to enable guests to inhale the sea air and watch the waves crash against the harbour wall.
There is a wide array of facilities available within Seahouses including tea rooms, restaurants, pubs and shops, all within a gentle stroll from the property. Watch the boats launch to the Farne Islands from the comfort of an armchair – the islands are famous for their nesting seabirds and grey seal colonies. Horse riding is available on the cusp of the village and there’s 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 and from where 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. Budle Bay is a bird sanctuary, and at low tide a vast expanse of mud flats is the home to thousands of sea and land birds, making this location a haven for bird watchers. The market town of Alnwick, with its own castle is a few miles inland and offers many facilities. Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction with its grand cascade waterfall and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe. Quay Cottage offers an idyllic coastal retreat from which to explore the 20 miles of Heritage coastline designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Beach 100 yards. Shop 150 yards, pub and restaurant 100 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.
