Driftwood description

Holiday home
Only one hundred yards from the golden sand dunes of Beadnell Bay beach, this cosy ground-floor apartment is ideal for anyone looking for a proper seaside holiday. Well decorated in a crisp, modern style and nicely furnished throughout, this excellent holiday-home has access to a shared garden for when you fancy a change from eating in the sunny, spacious dining-area, and is able to sleep up to four people. Whether you're looking for a getaway with friends, or something for all the family, this well equipped, modern apartment is excellent. If the pubs and restaurants within ten minutes walk of the apartment don't meet with your approval, then there are plenty more to choose from in nearby Alnwick and Bamburgh, and with boat trips to the Farne Islands only minutes away there's something in the local area to please everyone.

Once home to smugglers, this quaint little fishing village is now popular amongst tourists and holidaymakers who come to enjoy the picturesque harbour and sandy beaches of nearby Seahouses. At just over a mile away, Seahouses provides the village with the majority of its amenities, such as supermarkets, restaurants and shops, though there is a small store in Beadnell itself. Seahouses also offers trips from the scenic harbour to the nearby Farne Islands, popular with wildlife enthusiasts and birdwatchers. Vibrant Bamburgh and historic Alnwick are close by with the latter playing host to a magnificentcastle and gardens, used as part of the set in the well-known Harry Potter films.

Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.
