Description

Broughs House stands semi-detached and makes a great base from which to explore the coast and countryside; it is ideal for both couples or small families. Just 3 miles away is the friendly town of Amble with its working harbour, plenty of eating places and bespoke shops. The town has a strong local community spirit with a small beach and pretty little beach huts for hire, and has a busy Sunday market, popular with tourists and locals. Boat trips can be taken over to Coquet Island, a RSPB bird sanctuary.
Exploring is easy from here, with Alnwick only 10 miles away. Its castle is the location where some scenes were shot for the Harry Potter films, as well as the TV series, Downton Abbey. The town still has some cobbled streets and the Duchess Water Gardens are beautiful in the summer months, where you can admire the grand cascade waterfall and eat at The Treehouse Restaurant.
The picture postcard village of Warkworth, 5 miles, is dominated by the castle at the top of the street. Continuing up the coast you will reach Seahouses and Bamburgh, and further on is Holy Island, where you can cross when the tide is out (check tides). This whole area is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with miles of unspoilt golden beaches, castles and friendly villages, and Amble is situated at the start of it.
Hadrian’s Wall can be easily reached to the west via a good road network, and you can visit museums and see the wall where the Romans lived. Alnmouth railway station is just a few miles away, where you can leave the car and hop on a train to Edinburgh, York or Newcastle for a day’s sightseeing in beautiful cities.
Northumberland was voted the best place to holiday in the 2018 British Tourism Awards, and it easy to see why when you get here you are bound to want to return to this friendly, diverse, unspoilt county. Beach 2 miles. Shop 1¼ miles, pub 500 yards and restaurant 2½ miles.

About the local area

Warkworth is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque villages in the whole of Northumberland and not only has an excellent range of pubs, restaurants, cafes, art galleries and quality gift shops, but also a magnificent castle, located right in the middle of the village, to admire and explore.

The magnificent cross-shaped keep of Warkworth, crowning a hilltop rising steeply above the River Coquet, dominates one of the largest, strongest and most impressive fortresses in northern England. The castle's most famous owners were the Percy family, whose lion badge can be seen carved on many parts of their stronghold.

There are wonderful riverside walks alongside the pretty River Coquet which encircles the village, to watch the abundance of wildlife such as herons, foxes, migrating birds, and a vast, sandy beach with dramatic dunes and wonderful, far-reaching views up and down the Heritage Coastline.

Cyclists can enjoy an easy 18 mile day ride. The route has no major climbs and is featured in the recently published 'Sustrans Cycle Northumberland' booklet. Starting in the village, the route heads west inland on quiet lanes, and passes through Guyzance, Acklington and Broomhill. Rejoining the coast at the vast expanse of Druridge Bay and returning north via the fishing port of Amble.
