  • With a private balcony where you can enjoy spectacular views day and night
  • Walk to the local beach, shops, bars and restaurants, plus Bamburgh and Beadnell from the doorstep
Property code: OC-T29085

From the doorstep, walk to the village shops, bars, restaurants and local activities, including crazy golf, guided walks and the golf course with its amazing sea views. The daily boat trips leaving the harbour take you to the Farne Islands, which you can see from the apartment. You will see grey seal colonies, puffins in springtime, and an array of sea birds in their natural habitat. Back on land, walk the coastal path northwards to explore nearby Bamburgh Castle (3.5 miles), with its expanse of sandy beach and colourful village life where you can try the restaurants, independent shops and bars. Head to gorgeous Beadnell Bay (3 miles) to stroll, rock pool and picnic in the dunes, and try the village bistro, pub/restaurants and seaside cafe. Discover Alnwick Castle and Garden (15.5 miles) and Holy Island (19.5 miles).

Enter this fabulous harbour-side property and step into the open-plan living space with wow-factor sea and harbour views from the wide, dual-aspect windows and balcony. The lounge area has a large, comfortable sofa and an easy chair to relax on after a day of walking and sightseeing, and a Smart TV with Sky awaits, should you want to enjoy a movie night. The kitchen has all the contemporary appliances you would expect to find in a quality property, and coffee aficionados will enjoy the Nespresso coffee machine. There is a dining table where you can enjoy the views during dinner. In the morning, take your coffee out onto the balcony with garden furniture to sit and watch the sunrise and see the fishing boats prepare for the day, and in the evening, relax and enjoy spectacular sunsets over the Farne Islands. The en-suite bedroom has a double bed, plenty of storage space for your things, and a wall-mounted TV. A shower room with a walk-in shower and WC completes the accommodation.

Outside, the generous glazed balcony has a table and seating for two, perfect for extending your day in the fresh air watching the sea life, stargazing and spotting the occasional dolphin.

The owners have made a very good job of creating a comfortable, well equipped, bright, contemporary style apartment from a former fisherman's cottage. This one benefits from a good end of terrace position on the upper level and a small balcony to sit out on overlooking Seahouses harbour and The Farne Isles in the distance. (The view from the livingRead more room is equally very good and can be improved with the binoculars provided!). Despite the central location we had no issues with parking on-street below the property during our stay. Ensuite has spacious walk-in shower with rainfall and wall mounted options. Good facilities to self-cater if that's what you're looking for and Co-Op is nearby for supplies. (Only an ice-box in the fridge so no option to stock up a freezer). Of the eating out options within walking distance we liked The Black Swan Inn (albeit quite pricey) and Insieme Restaurant. Plenty of others within driving distance when exploring the surrounding area. We had forgotten how tight for space it is in a double bed and early morning sunlight flooded the bedroom so we didn't sleep particularly well (despite there being surprisingly no noise issues for a central, seafront location). With a king-sized bed and black-out curtains it would have been pretty much ideal, but we still enjoyed our week-long stay in this very nice apartment in a very scenic and interesting part of the country. Oh, and a Farne Island trip with "Serenity" is well worth the time and money. Hide
