Description

Set all on one level, the Grade II listed Stable at Longhoughton Hall dates back to the 18th century and has been sympathetically converted into a charming cottage, set in its own area of the gardens of the Hall. Built from the local, golden Northumbrian stone this pretty abode showcases the original roof timbers. Large windows in the lounge area, replacing the original stable entrance gates for farm horses in the past, create a light and airy living space with a log burner ensuring cosy evenings. Two beautifully presented bedrooms await then a waken refreshed and choose from one of two immaculately finished bathrooms before beginning your day. Enjoy breakfast in the morning sun in the grounds of this magnificent retreat, a choice of two seating areas greets you, both perfect for a spot of al fresco dining. This extremely comfortable cottage is the perfect get-away with oak flooring and underfloor heating, quality furnishings and fittings, and comfortable designer furniture. Looking for a luxurious stay offering charm and history on the Northumberland Coast? Look no further than The Stable!

Longhoughton is a pretty, little coastal village, just 4 miles east of the famous, historic market town
of Alnwick which offers a wide array of amenities including a cinema/playhouse, restaurants, independent
shops, a variety of pubs and eateries. Home to the Duke of Northumberland and film location for
Harry Potter’s Hogwarts, Alnwick Castle is a popular visitor attraction and only a gentle stroll from
the town centre. Don’t forget to visit the Alnwick Gardens; a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden,
including a grand cascade waterfall and ’poison’ garden. A great day out for all the family and you can dine in the largest tree house restaurant in Europe.

Once you’re ready to begin your Northumbrian adventure, firstly head to the hidden bay at Sugar Sands
– an idyllic beach with views across to Dunstanburgh Castle, sited mid-way on the beautiful 20-mile stretch
of Heritage coastline designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Readily accessible by public transport, this characterful cottage is only 4 miles from Alnmouth and the ever popular village of Warkworth with its dominant castle, or head north and sample the world-famous kippers of Craster with the nearby walk to the iconic Dunstanburgh Castle, and beyond that, the iconic Bamburgh Castle and Holy Island.

For sports lovers there is loads to enjoy! With some of the best and oldest Links golf courses in the country
nearby, golfers are spoilt for choice. Walkers can enjoy St Oswald’s Coastal path and the more demanding
Cheviot Hills, enjoying views of iconic castles and beaches. Run Northumberland if you want to - country
paths, beaches and hills along with local Park Runs are there to be enjoyed. The Stable’s base at
Longhoughton offers a great location to cycle inland to the hills, along the coastal roads and the
famous Kielder cycling trails. Hit the water for a wide variety of water sports to get your adrenaline pumping!

Or if you’re after something a bit more relaxing, don’t miss the popular Farne Island boat tours where you can visit a bird sanctuary and spot the seals relaxing on the rocks for a truly memorable experience. Art and music feature highly in Northumberland and discover local galleries and live music throughout the
region.

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.
