Dunstanburgh View is one of two beautiful Whinstone cottages situated at Proctors Stead Farm, near the idyllic hamlet of Dunstan and less than a mile inland from the seashore at Craster. The cosy living room boasts a wood burner ensuring a warm welcome whatever the season. The immaculate kitchen/dining room is also on the ground floor along with the fresh bathroom too. Both bedrooms are on the first floor and there are stunning, far reaching vistas across farmland towards the sea and the atmospheric ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle on the horizon.
The ambience surrounding this pair of homely cottages radiates peace and tranquillity, yet the traditional fishing village of Craster is less than a mile away, home to the renowned ‘Craster Kipper’, a smoked fish despatched to food lovers across the country. The friendly village of Embleton is only a couple of miles north with its wide sweep of golden sandy beach which has won the public poll of ‘Beach of the Year’ in the 2017 BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards.
The wide stretch of golden sands at Beadnell Bay is only 7 miles north and is a popular destination for watersport enthusiasts, including sailing, sea kayaking, wind surfing and scuba diving. Golf can also be found nearby. Two miles further up the coastline is the traditional fishing port of Seahouses with boat trips departing regularly to the nearby Farne Islands, famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony. Visit the picture perfect village of Bamburgh, snuggled in the shadow of its majestic castle, just 3 miles further north.
Just 7 miles inland from Dunstanburgh View is the bustling market town of Alnwick, with its own dramatic castle (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy). Visitors will also enjoy a trip to Alnwick Garden, a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden including the Grand Cascade waterfall, Poison Garden, and a restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe!
The property is located on a small farm which includes a friendly, family run private caravan park, and has easy access to explore the 20 miles of Northumberland’s Heritage coastline, recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Beach 2 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
