Description

Seascape 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 toasty welcome whatever the season. The generous kitchen/dining room is also on the ground floor along with a convenient cloakroom. All three double bedrooms along with a superbly presented bathroom are on the first floor with 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. 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 Seascape 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.

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.
