The Shieling is a spacious and bright, single-storey, luxury, detached property. It is highly recommended for its excellent location, open aspect and magnificent sea views towards Coquet Island and Warkworth Castle.

This superb, single storey property provides high standard accommodation with a feature floor to roof window and vaulted ceiling.

The property is centrally located for touring the inland areas of Northumberland and the Heritage coast. The Farne Islands with its famous National Trust seabird colony is a short sail from Seahouses. Beautiful Bamburgh is frequently rated as one of the top ten beaches in the U.K. A mere two miles away is award winning picturesque Warkworth village with its golf course, restaurants, inns, small shops, river, beach and ancient castle. Boat trips to the RSPB reserve on Coquet Island leave from Amble, three miles away. Historic Alnwick with its spectacular garden and castle, recently showcased in Harry Potter films, is within easy reach (five miles). The bus to Alnwick passes the entrance to the grounds. Historic sites galore and contrasting coast and country offer a holiday full of variety in this charming family run cottage. Cleanliness, standards and attention to detail are very important to us and are personally supervised by the owner Carole Ann. We have been providing accommodation for 9 years and take pride in the cottage. We love to share our knowledge of the area and places to visit

"What a lovely surprise!"

The lodge was much more spacious than we had expected.
Carole was waiting to welcome us and showed us round. All mod cons were there, almost too many of them! The space was light, airy, warm and spotless. There were plenty of books, including books and games for the children. There was plenty information about what there was to do in the area. Shopping for food was not a problem with large supermarkets in Alnwick and Amble. Although we were there for only three days, we visited Alnwick, Alnmouth beach, Warkworth and Amble. All in all a quiet, super location.

I love Northumberland and enjoy sharing it with my guests. It is great to hear you enjoyed your trip to The Shieling.
Thanks for the kind comments.
Carole Ann.

"Peaceful location, spacious modern lodge, wonderful views."

The Shieling is a fantastic place to stay and explore Northumberland. Warkworth and Amble are only minutes away by car for local facilities and attractions whilst the market town of Alnwick with its beautiful gardens and wonderful castle is just a little further. The lodge itself is clean modern, well equipped and spacious and was perfect for our family of 5. The sea view and peaceful location were ideal for relaxing after a busy day of sight seeing

"Lovely views across to Warkworth Castle, breathtaking!"

Lovely superior chalet set just outside Warkworth and away from it all. Perfect place for a family celebration or get together. Ideally placed for all of Northumberland's great attractions and beaches. Great social living area and warm, cosy and comfortable. Conservatory space great for a relaxing snooze or curl up with a book for a quiet read.
