The property

Holy Island 6.8 miles. This refurbished 19 century former farm cottage is in the middle of six cottages situated in the small hamlet of New Haggerston, where it is next to a working farm. Holy Island is only 6miles away and the town of Berwick upon Tweed is within easy driving distance of 7 miles away. Surrounded by fields with views of the Cheviots in one direction and the North Sea in the other, this cottage is set in an excellent location, and is a lovely base from which to enjoy days out in this picturesque area. Friendly and welcoming, this retreat is perfect for a small family or couples, wanting to enjoy a cosy holiday away from their busy lifestyle. The entrance will lead you into a small porch area, ideal for hanging your coats and leaving your boots upon arrival. The well equipped kitchen boasts a contemporary image, with splashes of black and silver. You will look forward to heading home after an eventful afternoon, to prepare a meal here, for your loved ones. To the other side, a dining table is neatly placed, so you can gather round with your friends for a warm and cosy evening. Continue into the sitting room home to a terracotta floor and a lovely wood burning stove, where you can feel snug on the sofa. Sit back and watch TV or read a book before stepping out through the French doors that open to the lovely garden and patio. Take the stairs to the double bedroom boasting soothing colours and views of the hills in the distance. There is plenty of room to store your clothes in the charming wardrobe and all those extras you may bring along. For an alternative place to sleep, or somewhere to house the children, the twin bedroom brings more rural scenery. The family bathroom is beautifully finished, for a comfortable place to get ready throughout the day. After doing so, and if the weather is pleasant, why not rest outside with a refreshing drink in the delightful garden to catch some sun. An ideal base to explore Northumberland 's many fabulous castles dotted along the coast, or just 6 miles away is Holy Island and 13 miles to Bamburgh Castle with its beautiful sandy beaches. The town of Berwick upon Tweed offers excellent amenities including shops/supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, a weekly market , pubs and leisure centre. There is plenty to enjoy in this leisurely location.

About the location


Berwick-upon-Tweed 14 miles; Bamburgh 16miles; Seahouses 18 miles

Holy Island is home to Lindisfarne Priory, one of the most important centres of early Christianity in Anglo Saxon England. The monastery was founded in AD 635 by St Aiden, but the island is more famously associated with St Cuthbert whose remains were carried by monks to Durham, and there they still remain. The island is now a popular tourist attraction with many visitors making a pilgrimage to the priory or following in the footsteps of the monks along St Cuthbert’s Way. Situated in the heart of the Heritage Coastline, the exciting journey to Holy Island begins with the essential check of the tides, the island is accessed via a long causeway which is impassable once the tide comes in. There is ample central parking and a short stroll will take you to the priory. The village itself has quaint tea rooms and pubs and a museum detailing the island’s interesting history. Those who enjoy the great outdoors will be delighted with the Northumberland Coastal Path, which runs through Beal just two miles inland and onwards down the Heritage Coast, offering stunning scenery along the way. Holy Island is within easy reach of both St Oswald's Way and St Cuthbert's Way and there are some great birdwatching sites nearby. Northumberland’s beautiful coastline, Alnwick Castle and Gardens, the Cheviots and the fascinating border town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, are all only a short drive away. The pretty village of Ford with its castle and craft shops is 13 miles away, part of the Ford and Etal Estate which has facilities for cycling and fishing, as well as a mini railway – ideal for all the family. There are also excellent golfing opportunities, with eight golf courses within 20 miles of Holy Island. A superb base for exploring all that the region has to offer.
