Description

Strand Cottage is a single-storey, detached holiday property, adjacent to the owner’s home and located within the traditional fishing village of Seahouses. The open plan living space is bright and airy, with patio doors leading to an enclosed patio, an ideal spot to dine alfresco. Both bedrooms are beautifully presented, and there is a good sized shower room too. Strand Cottage nestles behind St Aidan’s, which faces directly on to the rolling sand dunes fringing the sea. A wide array of amenities are available within 500 yards, including tea rooms, restaurants, pubs and shops. 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 just a mile 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 just 2 miles north, with its wide expanse of golden, and often empty sandy beaches, and where the tidal island of Lindisfarne can also be viewed. A further 2 miles up the coast 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. The bird sanctuary at Budle Bay has a vast expanse of mud flats at low tide, and is home to thousands of sea and land birds, making this location a haven for birdwatchers. The market town of Alnwick, with its castle and many facilities, can be reached within a few miles inland. Perhaps visit Alnwick Garden, a popular visitor attraction with its grand cascade waterfall and restaurant within the largest treehouse in Europe. Strand Cottage makes an excellent base from which to explore this Heritage coastline, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Beach 50 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 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.
