Windy View description

Commanding spectacular uninterrupted rural views, Windy View, a charming single storey holiday cottage is perched at the end of a small terrace of three. This former miner’s cottage has been transformed to provide deceptively spacious and well-presented accommodation for couples. Being conveniently all on ground floor level, this delightful holiday cottage enjoys a relaxing and homely ambience. There is a welcoming wood-burning stove in the tastefully furnished lounge; idyllic to relax and watch the flames dance after a day exploring the pretty surroundings. The property benefits from an additional dining area where French doors lead to the fully enclosed garden. The lovely views can also be admired from the immaculately presented double bedroom. The smart galley kitchen and contemporary bathroom complete the picture.

Windy View enjoys a rural position, only a mile from the village of Shilbottle where local facilities are available. Windy View is located equidistant between the historic market town of Alnwick and the prestigious coastal village of Alnmouth, both being just over three miles away. Alnmouth offers a variety of good restaurants, pubs, tea rooms and gift shops. Sailing enthusiasts have yacht and small boat moorings available to them within the sheltered estuary, and golfing enthusiasts will delight in the 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, which enjoys panoramic views.

Alnwick, renowned for its cobbled streets, has a wide array of attractive shops, pubs and tea rooms, cinema/playhouse and leisure facilities offering indoor swimming. Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts), is a popular visitor attraction, or visit the Alnwick Gardens; a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden, including a grand cascade waterfall and poison garden. Guests can dine in the restaurant of the largest tree house in Europe!

Windy View is an excellent choice for couples seeking a peaceful rural retreat yet within easy access to explore the beautiful 20-mile stretch of Heritage coastline designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the east and the wild and lonely expanses of the heather-capped Cheviot Hills to the west.Shop and pub 1½ mile, restaurant 3 miles.
