    “Fantastic home from home.”

    The accommodation was clean, well fitted and very comfortable. Excellent communications from the owner. We arrived late on a dark night and the only thing I would say it is a little tricky to first find the home at night - best to arrive in the daylight

The property

Warkworth 2.4 miles. A spacious detached lodge situated in the grounds of the Eastfield Hall estate. The Shieling is located near the Northumberland coast. Just a stone's throw from the scenic seaside village of Warkworth, The Shieling is a great base for a holiday with family or friends, with a host of nearby attractions. An open-plan living space contains all you need for an excellent self-catered stay, with a fitted kitchen lining the length of the room, complete with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer and a dishwasher among the appliances. Gather at the dining table for family meals and relax on the sofa to watch a film at the end the day. A small sun room sits at the front of the lodge, perfect for taking in the beautiful scenery and night skies. Head down the hall to a shared bathroom and three bedrooms, two twin rooms, one with its own TV, and a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. Enjoy alfresco lunches out on the picnic table in the garden, with plenty of lawn space for children to run around. The nearby coastal village of Warkworth has plenty of local shops and pubs to visit, as well as its own piece of 12th century history in the form of Warkworth Castle and Hermitage, set on a hilltop over the River Croquet. Warkworth also has a lovely beach with a long stretch of sand as well as a golf club. Try something new on holiday and book a lesson with Northside Surf School in Amble, or try kayaking or canoeing with Adventure Northumberland in Warkworth. The Northumberland Country Zoo is a fantastic day out for all ages, as well as the amazing Cragside, a National Trust run home of the Victorian inventor Lord Armstrong, with gadget displays and huge gardens to explore. The town of Alnwick is well-worth a visit, see the beautiful landscapes displays at The Alnwick Garden, explore one of the UK's largest inhabited castles at Alnwick Castle and ride on Alnwick's award-winning heritage train at the Aln Valley Railway.

About the location


Alnwick 5 miles; Alnmouth 3 miles; Amble 1 mile.

Lying in the loop of the River Coquet on the Heritage Coast, Warkworth is a picturesque village, dominated by the dramatic ruins of its 12th century castle. The history of the village and the castle are intertwined with the Percy Family who took over the castle in 1332. The Percys’ other home is nearby Alnwick Castle, most recently associated with Harry Potter as the film location of Hogwarts School. The main street is lined with Georgian and early Victorian houses and there is an exceptional range of galleries, antiques shops, a village shop/Post Office, pubs, restaurants and gift shops to suit all tastes. Warkworth has its own stretch of sandy beach and a 9 hole pay and play golf course. Also within easy touring distance are Hadrian’s Wall, Bamburgh Castle, Holy Island, the Farne Islands, several wonderful beaches and Alnwick Garden with its remarkable water cascade and Tree House Restaurant.
