Accomodation Details

This Victorian townhouse is located 50 metres back from the seafront and promenade in Newbiggin by the Sea, south of the mighty expanse of sand at Druridge Bay. Set over three floors it has been recently refurbished to offer quality family accommodation. 15 miles northeast of Newcastle, Newbiggin links the buzz of a vibrant city with the endless beauty of this stunning coastline. 2007 saw the completion of Newbiggin by the Sea's new sea defence breakwater and the first permanent offshore sculpture in the UK called "Couple". The sculpture of a man and a woman standing together looking out to sea was commissioned by Inspire Northumberland and was a unique project for the artist, Sean Henry. Woodhorn Country Park and Northumberland Museum are only 5 minutes by car. A short drive inland is the attractive market town of Morpeth with a leisure centre, swimming pool, a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants plus the added attractions of a Bagpipe Museum and Chantry Craft Centre. Hexham, Hadrian's Wall and the Roman Fort of Housesteads lie to the west and are well worth a visit. Further north lies the ancient town of Alnwick famous for it's castle and gardens and Holy Island accessible only by a fantastic causeway. Druridge Bay Country Park and beach combine country pursuits of bird watching, walking, canoeing and board sailing.

"Lovely spacious house, well equipped for large groups, great seaside location. We were impressed by how spacious the property was, plenty of room for 10 of us plus dog to hang out, a well equipped kitchen, beds were all comfortable and showers efficient. The sea is at the end of the road & we bought fishing nets for the kids to take advantage of the rock pools at the end of the bay."

"Thoroughly enjoyed our week at half-term hols. The house is wonderful & extremely tastefully appointed, feeling of Hotel standard fittings and no grumbles at all. With 5 Kids + 3Adults, the accommodation was spacious, safe and left us feeling pampered. Plenty of places to visit, Alnwick, Belsay and Druridge were our highlights- ran out of time to visit the dozens of others- so well be back!

Very comfortable and homely accommodation. It was great to have lots of space as we are a family of six. Good location, it's been a busy week, ranging from Beamish in the south to Berwick on Tweed in the North. One of the highlights was Alnwick Castle, very impressive and lots to see. Will recommend to friends.

"The accommodation and scenery was just perfect and relaxing. Would definitely use again and recommend to others."
