Driftwood Cottage is a stone-built cottage situated in the traditional seaside village of Seahouses. This tastefully furnished, mid-terraced property is within easy walking distance of the harbour, shops and pubs. Seahouses offers a wide array of facilities including tea rooms, restaurants, pubs and shops. From the nearby harbour there are boat trips to the Farne Islands, which are famous for their nesting seabirds and grey seal colonies. Horse riding is available only 200 yards away, and there is an impressive golf course on the links close by. The picture postcard village of Bamburgh, protected by its dramatic fortress, is only 2 miles north with its wide expanse of golden, and often empty, sandy beaches. From here the tidal island of Lindisfarne, locally known as Holy Island and the birthplace of Christianity, can be viewed. A further 2 miles up the coastline leads to Waren Mill, which is steeped in history. Once an important port, its harbour has long since disappeared, silted up beneath the sands of the estuary. Budle Bay is a bird sanctuary and, at low tide, a vast expanse of mudflats is the home to countless thousands of sea and land birds making this location a haven for bird watchers. The market town of Alnwick, with its castle, offers many facilities a few miles inland. Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction with its grand cascade waterfall and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe! Driftwood Cottage offers an excellent base from which to explore the 20 miles of Heritage coastline designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Beach 300 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
