Farne House Cottages - Gull’s Crest description

"Views towards Bamburgh Castle over harbour and sea – within two miles of Beadnell’s sweeping sands . . ."With fine views across the little harbour and its working quayside (not Gull’s Crest or Crag End), Farne House Holiday Homes are within a few hundred yards of the shops, restaurants, inns and other amenities of the fishing village and colourful seaside resort of Seahouses. Converted and refurbished to extremely high standards throughout, the properties here are grouped around a central courtyard only yards away from a fine indoor heated swimming pool and sauna. Available all the year round, the pool has a constant depth of 4ft 6in and features a south-facing glass sun living room to one side.
Within easy walking distance, the bustling harbour boasts a fleet of brightly painted fishing cobbles and a few larger boats, and the town itself provides a good range of facilities, including golf, sailing and horse riding. There are calm weather boat trips to the offshore Farne Islands, a wildlife sanctuary for puffins, oyster-catchers, kittywakes, guillemots and grey seals. The 28 islands form a nature reserve owned by the National Trust and, though half of them are submerged at high tide, landing is allowed daily in summer on the largest, Farne Island – where there is a nature trail, lighthouse and 14th-century chapel.
At Beadnell, 2 miles to the south, the dune-backed sands of Beadnell Bay provide ideal conditions for water sports. Formerly an important fishing village and smugglers’ haunt, Beadnell now enjoys a reputation as a centre for sailing and has the unique distinction of being the only East Coast port with a west-facing harbour. The sandy beach running the length of the bay is safe for swimming and is overlooked by 18th-century lime kilns. In the village stands a three-storey, 16th-century peel tower, which now forms part of an inn. Five minutes’ drive to the north of Farne House Holiday Homes stands the mighty fortress of Bamburgh Castle, easily visible across the wide stretch of sand from Seahouses.
Just a few miles further on is yet more historical, natural and scenic interest at Holy Island. Here, the fairytale Lindisfarne Castle was first a 16th-century fort, then a ruin which was redesigned by Edwin Lutyens in 1902 and is now owned by the National Trust.
Inland is a country of massive hills and moors, fast rivers and great forests. Between the Cheviots and the sea, there is easy touring through fields of corn and pastures dotted with solid stone hamlets and lined by dry-stone walls which patchwork the countryside. Shops 500 yards.Entrance hall. Ground floor: Double bedroom. Twin bedroom. First floor: Sitting room with dining area. Modern kitchen. Modern bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. No sea view.

A warm, cosy property with lots of space. Loved the nearness to the beach.

This is a really beautiful, unspoilt section of coastline and Seahouses is an ideal base for castles, beaches, boats and walking. Very comfortable and convenient (although parking could be a bit difficult). Ideally situated for shops and restaurants and the children enjoyed the pool.

Everyone in Seahouses very friendly, the flat was brilliant and having full access to indoor pool was amazing. We had one of the best trips that we have ever had.

Without a doubt the property is in an excellent location for all local amenities. The swimming pool was a great success with two children.

A most enjoyable couple of days and I recommend the Seafood Platter in the Olde Ship Inn - book early! Take the boat trip around Farne Islands, a trip to Lindisfarne is a must but be aware of tide times, and if you want a visit to a town Berwick on Tweed’s perimeter wall walk is great.
