Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This modern, generously-sized, detached holiday property has two bedrooms and can accommodate up to four guests. Located within a recently constructed development at the southern end of the popular coastal village of Seahouses yet only half a mile from the bustling and vibrant harbour, Sandmartin is the perfect base for access to local amenities and for exploring the heritage coast of Northumberland or the scenic delights of the Northumberland National Park to the west. Golf-lovers will readily appreciate this property as it is located within a short walk from a 18 hole golf course overlooking the sea. Oil central heating ensures guests will always be warm and cosy no matter what the weather and there is off-road parking for two cars. A particularly lovely feature of this property is the enclosed patio garden area to the area; a lovely spot for planning the day ahead or winding down with a chilled glass of wine after a busy but interesting day.

Northern England region
The northerly county of Northumberland is a hidden gem of totally unspoilt countryside and wonderful long stretches of pristine sandy beaches. If you want to stretch your legs and breathe in clean country air this is the place for you, with miles of wide open spaces and magnificent views. The county has three distinct sub regions; a coastline stretching some forty miles with quiet sandy beaches and pretty coastal harbour villages. Inland visitors will find dramatic rolling moorland and forests, much of which is National Park and to the south of the region is the famous Hadrian's Wall which runs coast to coast and is now a World Heritage Site. Apart from Northumberland's natural assets the county is steeped in history and has had a turbulent past which is characterised by more than its fair share of castles and ancient hill forts, some of which were built to repel Viking invaders. It was also the scene of the border wars and conflicts between the English and Scots in the 14th-16th century.
Seahouses has an excellent range of facilities for visitors including a good selection of food and drink outlets and an amusement arcade. Boat trips are available throughout the holiday season from the harbour to the Farne Islands, a number of which are designated bird sanctuaries and well worth a visit. It is also possible to charter a boat for fishing trips. A few miles to the north of Seahouses is the beautiful and seemingly ‘time locked' village of Bamburgh, somewhat overshadowed by its awe-inspiring castle, which is open to the public. Bamburgh Beach is stunning and Ross Sands, a short drive further up the coast, is arguably one of the most beautiful beaches in the UK. The ancient and spiritual island of Lindisfarne, known locally as Holy Island, is only 30 minutes drive away and is reached via a tidal causeway. The island is reputed to be the birthplace of Christianity in England and is a settlement steeped in history, myth and legend. To the south lies the friendly village of Beadnell and the gorgeous Beadnell Bay- just perfect for a family day out by the sea. By way of contrast, visitors should take a trip inland to the medieval town of Alnwick. Another Northumbrian settlement dominated by a majestic castle and which provided the location for Hogwarts in the early Harry Potter films. Another must see is the Alnwick Garden – a stunning public garden that is home to the largest tree house in Europe and stunning water features. Barter Books, situated at the southern end of the town, is one of the largest second-hand book stores in the country. Located within an old railway station and offering an excellent tea room it is a wonderful wet-weather venue.
