Description

Situated at the end of a small cul-de-sac, only 200 yards from the sea front, this cosy semi-detached holiday home is an ideal base from which to explore the magnificent heritage coastline of Northumberland. The small fishing village of Newbiggin-by-the-Sea has the only east coast off shore statue, ‘Ebb and Flo’, which is set in the pretty bay. Relax and enjoy a coffee and an award-winning ice cream from the family run ice cream shop located in the centre of the promenade. The Maritime Centre at the end of the bay houses the old lifeboat, offers a café overlooking the bay and hosts regular exhibitions. Visit Newbiggin Lifeboat Station, one of the oldest in England, open to the public most Sundays, or enjoy free entry to the nearby Woodhorn Museum, which puts on regular events and holds genealogy records.
The historic town of Morpeth is only 8 miles away with bespoke shops, ample tea rooms and pubs and a riverside walk. 13 miles north, the friendly fishing port of Amble offers a popular Sunday market and small fish restaurants. From Amble follow the heritage coastline towards Craster, Beadnell and Bamburgh and soak up the golden beaches and unspoilt miles of coastline and castles. Catch the bus from the nearby stop and head into the vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne, where you can explore the quayside and the historic streets and shops. A train to the wonderful towns of Edinburgh or York can be taken from nearby Morpeth Station, or explore the beautiful countryside at the Northumberland National Park and Kielder. Hadrian’s Wall is easily accessed via the A69 where you can visit Corbridge, Hexham and the historic Roman forts. Castaway by the sea is ideally located for exploring the whole of this unspoilt, diverse and friendly county. Beach 200 yards. Shop and pub 175 yards, restaurant ¾ mile.

About the local area

The town of Morpeth is situated 10 miles inland on the River Wansbeck which flows through the town. Morpeth is a great central location at the heart of this beautiful county offering wonderful country estates, quiet unspoilt villages and a spectacular stretch of shoreline.

Within a short distance of Morpeth lie wonderful country estates and gardens like Wallington House and Belsay Hall, Castle & Gardens. Druridge Bay, with its magnificent seven-mile stretch of golden sand and dunes is only 20 minutes away by car. Also nearby is Woodhorn Museum Archives and Country Park where you can explore the rich industrial heritage that this part of Northumberland is renowned for. To the north of Morpeth stands Longhorsley, a typical example of a pretty, rural Northumberland village where the world's first self-raising flour was developed! To the west there are the parishes of Kirkwhelpington and Cambo - a beautiful stone-built estate village set amongst superb countryside.

Wallington Hall is home to magnificent grounds and gardens and a popular farm shop just down the road. Wallington, which is managed for the nation by the National Trust, boasts huge pre-Raphaelite paintings depicting the history of Northumberland, a display of dolls' houses and an enchanted secret garden.

Nearby you'll also find the picturesque village of Belsay which is the site of Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens, a stately home with beautiful gardens that hosts regular arts events. At Belsay you can explore a spectacular medieval castle and wander through thirty acres of stunning gardens.

Head out to the coast and you'll find Druridge Bay, with its magnificent seven miles stretch of golden sand dunes. There's also an adjoining country park with a large lake surrounded by woods and meadows.
