BOOKING NOW FOR 2016 - Bolt Hole by the sea is an end of terrace apartment with spectacular sea views from every room. Situated in the pretty seaside town of Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, it is close to the bustling market town of Morpeth and is located a mere stone's throw from the Newbiggin bay and promenade. The golf links are just a short walk away.

The apartment, which sleeps 4, provides a superb base for visiting the Northumbrian coastline, Newcastle and the Scottish borders. The area is rich in wildlife - with breath taking scenery and the gorgeous coastline provides a choice of many scenic drives, perfect for walking, bird watching or for a cycling holiday with the family.

This newly-refurbished apartment sits on a corner plot and boasts 180 degree sea views from the living room and sea views from every room. Within walking distance you will find the heart of the village with its wealth of eateries, shops, art and leisure facilities and there's a children's play area right on the beach, close to the new Maritime Centre with beach front café and gift shop. Even in the height of the summer months, the beach (recently categorised as 'Excellent' by the Environment Agency) is never overcrowded so you will be able to 'relax to the max' during your stay.

The apartment is perfectly placed for an abundance of activities. Go Ape Tree Top Adventure Centre is only a 15 mile drive and the area is rich in castles, gardens and history. Alnwick Castle, the location for Harry Potter's school Hogwarts, with beautiful gardens and a giant tree house for children to play in, is less than 40 minute's drive away. Balliffgate Museum Gallery in Alnwick is well worth a visit; as is the stunning castle at Bamburgh, spectacularly situated on a peak of basalt, overlooking the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and the gorgeous beach. The observatory at Kielder Water and Forest Park is less than a 30 minute drive and the Steam Railway at Alston is a great day out for all the family. There are numerous children's water parks, sand parks and soft play parks in the region.
