The Old Manse description

The Old Manse is a historic, stone-built, detached property situated on the fringe of the seaside village of Seahouses. The accommodation is spacious and boasts oodles of character throughout. The homely living area has a welcoming open fire and there’s also a cosy wood burner in the separate dining room. A French door leads to a bright and airy conservatory which wraps around the property offering a lovely light space to relax overlooking the private and mature garden. All four bedrooms are on the first floor, two with en-suite shower facilities and a family bathroom too, ensuring The Old Manse is a well-appointed property suitable for accommodating extended families or the gathering of family and friends.

Around a mile away is the renowned traditional harbour of Seahouses where boat trips to the nearby Farne Islands, famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony, depart regularly. Seahouses offers several charming tea rooms, amusements, pubs and shops. Horse riding can be arranged close by and fishing and golf on the links nearby is only a sample of the many amenities available in this popular location. A further three miles up the coastline is the picturesque village of Bamburgh, which lies snuggled in the shadow of its majestic fortress and commands the power and presence of the seasoned television set it regularly becomes. Holy Island, the birthplace of Christianity and site of Lindisfarne Castle can be seen from the unspoilt golden, sandy beach. Two miles south of The Old Manse lies Beadnell Bay, a glorious stretch of golden sandy beach, which can truly be described as the jewel in Northumberland’s seaside crown. It’s also popular with watersports enthusiasts and offers sailing, sea kayaking, wind surfing and scuba diving. Just a few miles inland is the bustling market town of Alnwick, with its own dramatic castle (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy!). Visitors will enjoy a trip to Alnwick Garden, a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden including the Grand Cascade waterfall and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe!

The Old Manse is an excellent choice for those seeking a prestigious coastal retreat to rest and refresh with easy access to one of the most glorious beaches in Northumberland, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
