Castle View is located on the fringe of the picture postcard village of Warkworth, which lies snuggled in the shadow of its majestic castle and is surrounded by the River Coquet, which gently ebbs and flows close by. There are many facilities available within the village including quaint shops, charming pubs, several galleries and a couple of good restaurants. A short walk from the village leads to an extensive sweep of golden, sandy beach. Amble, known locally as ’the friendliest port’ is where fishing and boat trips to Coquet Island can be arranged only 2 miles away, to watch the puffins at play. The historic market town of Alnwick dominated by its own dramatic fortress offers a wide range of amenities, including a theatre/cinema, many restaurants and shops as well as an indoor swimming pool only 6 miles inland.
