Description

Holly Cottage is a stone-built conversion nestled within the picturesque village of Longhoughton, with the owner living next door and only 4 miles from Alnwick. Independent access to the property is via an arched doorway where full height glass windows enhance the bright and airy ambience throughout the open plan living space. The immaculately presented bedrooms are on the first floor, and both enjoy the convenience of en-suite shower facilities. Exposed beams in the master bedroom add to the character, and to the rear of the property there is a spacious enclosed garden, perfect for dining alfresco and where children and pets can play.

Longhoughton is only 4 miles east of the historic market town of Alnwick, where there is a wide array of amenities including a cinema/playhouse, restaurants, independent shops and a variety of pubs. Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts) is a popular visitor attraction, or visit the Alnwick Gardens, a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden, including a grand cascade waterfall and poison garden where guests can dine in the restaurant of the largest tree house in Europe.

The glorious wide expanse of golden sands at Embleton is only 5 miles away. Holly Cottage offers easy access to explore the beautiful Northumberland Heritage Coast, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to the east, and the wild expanses of the heather-capped Cheviot Hills to the west. Beach 1 mile. Shop 150 yards, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

About the local area

Craster is a small fishing village on the Northumberland coast and famous as the home of the Craster Kipper, a smoked fish exported to food lovers across the country. It has a small and attractive harbour and offers a view northwards along the rocky shore to the spectacular ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle.

Dramatic Dunstanburgh Castle was built at a time when relations between King Edward II and his most powerful baron, Earl Thomas of Lancaster, had become openly hostile. Lancaster began the fortress in 1313, and the latest archaeological research carried out by English Heritage indicates that he built it on a far grander scale than was hitherto recognised, perhaps more as a symbol of his opposition to the king than as a military stronghold.

This area is very popular with walkers and there are an abundance of footpaths to explore. The third stage of the Northumberland coastal path route starts in the village, heading north past the dramatic ruins of windswept Dunstanburgh Castle and onto the golden sands of Embleton Bay, keeping a lookout for the famous 'Andra Barton Rock'. Past the beach huts and on to picturesque Low Newton by the Sea, with it's village square and the Ship Inn, a perfect place to stop for well earned food and refreshments. Then to the vast expanse of Beadnell Bay and the village of Beadnell beyond, finally ending-up in the bustling holiday town of Seahouses, gateway to the Farne Islands.

Three miles up the coast from Craster is the village of Embleton, about half-a-mile from the beautiful bay which carries its name. The sandy beach is backed by dunes where a variety of flowers bloom: bluebells, cowslips, burnet roses and, to give it its common name, bloody cranesbill, amongst others.

Golfers can enjoy a good 18-hole links golf course overlooking the beautiful Embleton Bay.
