Special interest holidays:

The Farne Islands are possibly the most exciting seabird colony in England with unrivalled views of 23 species, including around 37,000 pairs of puffin.

It's also home to a large grey seal colony, with more than 1,000 pups born every autumn.

Historically, the islands have strong links with Celtic Christianity and St Cuthbert, who lived here in the 7th Century.

There's also a medieval pele tower and Victorian lighthouse here, plus a visitor centre and easy access boardwalk.

Many of the islands hide underwater at high tide. Visitors pass lots of these inaccessible islets on boat trips - a short journey to a different world!

Originally home to the Lindisfarne Gospels and the site of grisly Viking attacks, a visit to Lindisfarne Priory is a great day out in Northumberland. Sitting offshore on Holy Island and reached by a causeway at low tide, the peaceful atmosphere and beautiful view is an experience to behold. Boat trips from Seahouses run several times daily in the summer months.

Coast/Beach:

Bamburgh is notable for two reasons: the imposing Bamburgh Castle, seat of the former Kings of Northumbria, and at present owned by the Armstrong family, overlooking the extensive award winning sandy beach; and its association with the Victorian heroine, Grace Darling, who is buried there.

Bamburgh is popular with holidaymakers and is within the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Travel:

Flights land at Newcastle International Airport, a 45 minute drive away. As well as domestic flights, Newcastle welcomes flights from across the globe including direct Emirates flights from Australia and New Zealand.

Less than three hours from London Kings Cross, stations on the East Coast mainline from London Kings Cross to Aberdeen include Newcastle, Morpeth, Alnmouth and Berwick-upon-Tweed. Connecting westbound services are run by CrossCountry and Hadrian’s Wall Country Line.

Distances:

Bamburgh - 3 miles

Beadnell - 4 miles

Alnwick (Town, castle and gardens) - 14 miles

Holy Island (Lindisfarne) - 18 miles

Morpeth - 33 miles

Newcastle - 49 miles

Hadrian`s Wall - 60 miles

Edinburgh - 79 miles

Further Details:

Seahouses is renowned for its fish & chips but also has an excellent array of pubs and restaurants, including Indian, Chinese, Italian and of course English.

The local shops include newsagents, bakers, butchers, gift shops and a well equipped supermarket.

Guests of the apartment have complimentary family membership to the adjacent award winning leisure club.

Fantastic view and great location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment is spot on being only a few minutes stroll into Seahouses. Bamburgh is a five minute drive along the coastal road. You really can't beat the view from the balcony which is a great place to sit with a coffee in the morning. Inside, the apartments neutral decor is very pleasing and it's comfortably furnished. It has a spacious feel. We slept really well as the beds were really comfy. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly return to the apartment and hope we do in the future :)

Very comfortable and an ideal quiet place to enjoy Banburgh beach

  • 5 of 5

We love this flat and have just booked for our 3rd stay.

Really easy and has every comfort.

The view of the beach right outside the flat is breathtaking.

No need to drive anywhere...a real joy for us .

Make sure to go to Swallow Smokery and Boat trips to the Farne Islands too.

Perfect base for a week in Northumberland

  • 5 of 5

Had a really enjoyàble week in Seàhouses. Flat was in a great location, was perfectly presented and had absolutely everything we needed to have a great break.

Thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the balcony of an evening looking out over the beach to the sea and watching all the healthy walkers whilst we sat and enjoyed a nice bottle of wine.

Lots of good food nearby, plenty walks and some great golf - Steven's suggestion to go to Dunstanborough Castle GC was on the money.

Thanks to all.

Best wishes, Andrew, Karen, Kirsten and Julia.

Great Location close to the Beach

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is close to the beach which makes it ideal for longer walks or jogging. It has high standard, was very clean and comfortable with all what you would need. It is also a perfect spot to explore Northumberland.

Despite being close to the main road is was surprisingly quiet. Steven was very supportive prior and during our stay. The Ocean Club is close by and great for swimming with the kid. The additional fee per visit to the swimming pool were a bit of an unpleasant surprise but it was worth it for the kids. I would recommend this apartment to everyone!

The location of the apartment, looking right onto the fabulous beach and the sea, was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. We walked endlessly on the stunning, clean, sandy beach between Seahouses and Bamburgh and braved the water which was so envigorsting. A short stroll into Seahouses was always a pleasure, with everyone so friendly. The wider area is fascinating and beautiful. The apartment is modern, well-equipped and warm. A perfect week and very helpful owner.
