Leaholme Cottage is situated in the quiet picturesque village of High Newton-by-the-Sea, with access to three of the most stunning sandy beaches in Northumberland: Low Newton (St Mary's Haven), Newton Links (on Beadnell Bay), and Football Hole ('the secret beach').
This gorgeous house sleeps up to eight guests in four double bedrooms (please note there is a normal occupancy restriction of six adults and two children). There are two bathrooms, one of which is on the ground floor. Both reception rooms boast traditional open coal fires, so it really is perfect for breaks at any time of year.
The location of the house could not be better, as it is only a few minutes' walk from the renowned, award-winning wedding venue of Newton Hall and just 100 metres from the well-known Joiner's Arms gastropub. The house is also just a ten-minute stroll from three of the best beaches on the stunning Northumberland coast. The Ship Inn at Low Newton has been voted by The Times as one of the best coastal pubs in the country, serving locally caught seafood and home grown produce as well as a selection of real ales from its on-site microbrewery.
The nearby village of Embleton has a small shop/post office, petrol station, golf club, and three pubs. Slightly farther to the south is the fishing village of Craster, where the Jolly Fisherman pub provides good food, and there is a coastal walk to the imposing Dunstanburgh Castle. Seahouses is the nearest town, just six miles away. Seahouses is a bustling seaside town with a working harbour and a fish smokery in the old quarter. There are lots of shops, restaurants and gift shops, as well the best fish and chips for miles. There is also St Aiden's beach, which has views of Bamburgh Castle in the distance. Bamburgh, a few miles farther north, is a quaint village that has lots to offer in term of old-world charm and history, and regularly features on film and TV. Inland, 20 minutes away, is the market town of Alnwick, famous for its castle and garden, where you will find a wide variety of shops, supermarkets, places to eat and other services. A regular local bus service joins Alnwick and the coastal villages, including High Newton-by-the-Sea, so it is possible to walk the coastal path without needing a car.
