Limpet Cottage description

Commanding dramatic sea views, Limpet Cottage sits in a small terrace perched on the sea front in the peaceful coastal village of Boulmer. Pronounced Boomer, it is a pretty coastal village with very little traffic. Once the haunt of smugglers it is one of the true Northumbrian fishing villages which remains virtually untouched by time. Meander along the waters edge and watch the fishermen return with their daily catch of lobsters, crabs and salmon. The historic market town of Alnwick is just 6 miles away. Dominated by its dramatic fortress, it offers a wide range of amenities including a playhouse, indoor swimming pool and an excellent array of restaurants, shops, tea rooms and pubs. Take time to visit Barter Books, one of the largest secondhand bookshops in Britain, or discover the magnificent Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts.

Alnwick Garden, a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden, has a grand cascade waterfall and poison garden, and guests can dine in the restaurant in the largest tree house in Europe. Less than 3 miles walk along the beach is the picture postcard village of Alnmouth, where a variety of good restaurants, pubs, tea rooms and gift shops for the discerning visitor can be enjoyed. Yacht and small boat moorings within the sheltered estuary are available for the sailing enthusiasts. For the golfers, there are two courses close by, one being a fine 9-hole course adjacent to the beach, and the other being a challenging 18-hole course at Foxton with panoramic views. Limpet Cottage is situated on a National Cycle Route, making this property particularly suitable for keen cyclists. This is a superb choice for couples seeking self-catering accommodation. It is conveniently all on one level and situated only a gentle stroll from the seashore of the beautiful Northumbrian coastline, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
