Whilst its good to get away from it all, sometimes you have to stay in touch and that's why CALLIOPE offers free Wi-fi internet access to all its guests as well as free telephone calls to most UK landlines (full details will be provided on booking). And if it rains (surely it never rains in Northumberland!) we've also provided a small selection of books and DVDs for the enjoyment of you and your family.
The Northumberland region
The Northumberland region is one of the most beautiful and tranquil parts of England. Renowned for its castles, wildlife and sandy beaches, this historic coastline is complemented by the beauty of the nearby Northumberland National Park. But as well as peace and tranquillity there’s a whole host of things for you and your family to do.
If castles are “your thing” then the castles at Alnwick, Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Etal & Warkworth should keep you busy. If it’s the Romans that excite you then Hadrian’s Wall and the Roman Army museum are within striking distance and well worth a visit. And no trip to Northumberland would be complete without a visit to Holy Island, the Cradle of Christianity in England.
For those visitors with an interest in natural history the region provides an equally rich array of attractions. As well as Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve there are plenty of other sites for the keen birder to visit and a trip to The Farne Islands, home to more than 150,000 nesting birds and one of the UK’s largest Grey Seal colonies, is an absolute must for any visitor.
If you want to go even further afield then the Cheviots and Borders are easily accessible and the bright lights of Newcastle and Edinburgh are both within striking distance.
Beadnell is a quiet coastal village with its own beach and rock-pools and is a great base for families looking to explore this part of the world. For those so inclined the area offers the opportunity to enjoy a range of activities including golf; fishing, sailing, diving, cycling, horse riding, surfing, and even kite surfing.
The village has two pubs (both of which serve food), a small shop, a church and a children’s play park which is small but very well-kept. Beadnell also boasts a tiny chippy that opens for a couple of hours each day during the holiday season! The long arching beach of Beadnell Bay is the area’s key attraction. Frequented by families, birders and kite surfers alike, this two mile stretch of broad sandy beach is rarely busy.
Walk a little further south and your efforts will be rewarded by the comforts offered by The Ship Inn at Low Newton. Great food and real ale in a lovely setting. Further south again and you’ll come to the peaceful villages of Embleton and Craster. If you’re up to it, the 8 mile coastal walk from Beadnell to Craster is a very rewarding stroll!
Heading north from Beadnell you’ll find the small seaside town of Seahouses. As well as its gift shops, eateries, pubs and amusement arcade, it’s also the embarkation point for visitors wishing to take a boat-trip out to the Farne Islands. Bamburgh, four miles north of Seahouses is a quieter, pretty village dominated by the castle of the same name. As well as the castle you’ll also find another great beach, some quaint shops, cafes and the Grace Darling museum.
Nearby in Alnwick you’ll find every sort of shop and facility you might associate with a larger town including two supermarkets and a leisure centre. It is also home to Alnwick Gardens, Alnwick Castle and Barter Books (a huge second hand book-shop located in what was Alnwick Railway Station) all of which are well worth a visit.

"Lovely family holiday home"
Calliope is a great holiday home - not only that but a real family home from home, located on a very peaceful housing development. Everything is catered for from the comfortable beds to the well equipped kitchen to the great sea views.
Its a great central base for travelling around Northumberland, County Durham and Scotland - car definitely recommended.
Beadnell has a lovely chip shop although fairly limited opening hours. Plenty of choice just up the road in Seahouses.

"brilliant jubilee week"
stayed at the calliope for the jubilee week the house was lovely and spacious for 6 people. the bonus being the extra loo downstairs, the house was just home from home even having a bbq which we did use even though the weather was a bit chilly.The location was ok a bit out of the center where the pubs were, but found a shortcut through the fields.I would stay there again if I was in the area
