The property

Alnwick 4.6 miles. Resting in the perfect position close to the stunning Northumberland coast and enjoying partial sea views, The Croft in Longhoughton, is an impressive, single-storey holiday home that promises a relaxing and enjoyable stay and is ideal for families. Your holiday begins as soon as you park up on the convenient driveway which can easily accommodate two cars off-road. Inside, the décor is bright, and welcoming, helping to create an inviting ambience for guests. Step into the spacious sitting room which has gorgeous French doors, which flood the room with light, and take a seat on one of the comfy sofas, kick back and relax. Whether you want to zone out and lose yourself watching your favourite TV programme or spend the time socialising with each other, the space is perfect for either. When it’s time to eat, make your way to the expansive open-plan kitchen/diner which is fully equipped with everything needed to produce hearty meals for the group. Pull up a stool at the breakfast bar, pour yourself a glass of your favourite tipple and keep the designated chef company. Serve up at the contemporary dining table which easily seats six and you can look forward to long, lazy meals together. Should the weather allow then you can carry on the evening outside, where you will find an enclosed garden complete with decking and a fantastic hot tub where even on a chilly Northumbrian night, you can enjoy the great outdoors. Come bedtime and guests can choose from two super-king-sizes, with the master having its own TV and sumptuous en-suite double shower room, and a cool children’s bunk bedroom. A family bathroom completes the accommodation. Wake up in the morning and after a quick shower or a relaxing soak in the bath, you’re ready to get out and about exploring the wonders of Northumberland.

About the location


Alnmouth 4 miles; Bamburgh 15 miles; Rothbury 10 miles.

The attractive and historic market town of Alnwick is dominated by Alnwick Castle, home to the Duke of Northumberland. The Castle Gardens, opened in 2002, are home to Europe's largest cascading water feature, a fabulous (and enormous) treehouse, a delightful rose garden and a beautiful, walled ornamental garden, which will delight novice and experienced gardeners alike. The castle is also famous as the setting for Hogwarts School featured in the Harry Potter films! The town's narrow streets have seen little change since the days when the London to Edinburgh stage coach passed through and the Market Place, with its stone cross, is still the central feature and the ideal venue for the weekly Saturday market. Alnwick offers a good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat and there is plenty to see and do, with miles of golden sandy beaches, numerous castles and boat trips to the famous Farne Islands all available nearby. Altogether a superb location for exploring Northumberland and its stunning Heritage Coastline.
