Description

Situated very close to the harbour in the traditional fishing village of Seahouses, Sandy Toes is a beautifully presented, terraced holiday cottage that oozes style and charm. The lovely living area has a large electric wood burner ensuring a cosy welcome awaits you regardless of the weather. Seahouses offers a wide array of facilities including tea rooms, restaurants, pubs and shops all within a gentle stroll from Sandy Toes. Boat trips run from the nearby harbour to the Farne Islands, famous for their nesting seabirds and grey seal colonies. The picture postcard village of Bamburgh, protected by its dramatic fortress, is just 2 miles north with its wide expanse of golden sandy beaches. The tidal island of Lindisfarne, known locally as Holy Island, can also be viewed from here.
Steeped in history, Waren Mill is a further 2 miles up the coastline. Once an important port, its harbour has long since disappeared, silted up beneath the sands of the estuary. The bird sanctuary at Budle Bay is home to thousands of sea and land birds at low tide when there is a vast expanse of mudflats, making this the perfect location for birdwatchers. The market town of Alnwick is a few miles inland and has a castle and many facilities. Alnwick Garden, a popular visitor attraction, is well worth a visit with its grande cascade waterfall and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe. Horse riding is available on the edge of the village and there is an impressive golf course on the links close by. Beach 200 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
Sandy Toes (UK3111) can be booked together with Salty Kisses Cottage (UK3114) to accommodate up to 12 guests.

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.
