This charming cottage is one of four found in a woodland retreat just minutes from the beach. Found in the village of Scremerston, it benefits from expansive field views that stretch out towards the sea.
Scremerston was the hub of the local coal industry until 1944, and the present owners purchased the old colliery buildings to lovingly create this 5-star quality accommodation. Located on the original coaching route from London to Edinburgh, it lies within peaceful surroundings and is the perfect base to access all the local border towns and Northumberland’s unspoiled coastline.
Berwick, with its quirky shops, restaurants and independent cafes, is just two miles away. The town, surrounded by the original town walls built back in 1588, is steeped in history, and the painter LS Lowry was a regular visitor. He is honoured with the Lowry Trail that meanders around and through the town. A short drive away the historical castles of Bamburgh, Alnwick and Dunstanburgh await your exploration, or you can discover quaint picturesque fishing villages dotted around the coast. A trip to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, with its unique access across the tidal causeway, is a worthy way to spend some time.
The seaside property offers a large courtyard and a variety of sitting area/picnic spots to choose from. Children will love the large outdoor children’s paddock play area with a slide, swings and trampoline. The local shops, pub and a restaurant are just a mile away, so you can buy your provisions on the way before arriving any time after 4pm.
Inside the house, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner flows nicely through the simple colour scheme and is practical and comfy. There is a TV and DVD player for evenings in, and the kitchen is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, a washer dryer and a microwave. There are two bright and airy bedrooms, one a double, the other a twin, while the sleek bathroom has a separate shower cubicle, bath and WC. A private decked area at the back of the property is enclosed from the far-reaching views by a low-level fence and there is seating area upon which to while away the hours, watching and listening to the local wildlife.
Amenities include ample off-road parking and the bed-linen, electricity, central heating and Wi-Fi are all included. No smoking or pets are allowed at this property.
