Description

This truly unique and most charming Grade II listed cottage stands in possibly the most idyllic and desirable location on the Northumberland coast. Set in a superb and secluded position on the cliff edge with a sandy cove below, it commands panoramic coastal views from every window. The majestic ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle can be seen in the north, whilst to the south there are distant views of Coquet Island. The coastline in this region is characterised by a mixture of rocky inlets and lovely sandy beaches with attractive walks along the cliff tops. A 14 mile coastal footpath between Beadnell and Alnmouth passes nearby providing the opportunity of walking through some of the most outstanding coastal scenery in the country, this part of the Heritage Coast is designated an "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" as well as being a "Site of Special Scientific Interest". The Coast and Castles cycle route passes nearby. The Bathing House is approached by a 400 metre private track and is ideal for a family holiday or for those seeking a secluded, romantic coastal location. It was built in the early 19th century by the 2nd Earl Grey who was the Prime Minister responsible for the passing of the Great Reform Bill of 1832 and whose monument stands at the top of Grey Street in Newcastle upon Tyne. He had 16 children and the house was built specifically for the family to go bathing. The design of the house includes a large upstairs sitting room (now the main bedroom) where Lady Grey used to sit and watch the children bathe, and where tea was served by the caretaker who lived below. The Bathing House is now owned by Howick Trustees Ltd, a charitable trust who also own Howick Hall. Guests are provided with a free pass to the gardens which are open between early February to mid November and a free all year pass to the Arboretum, which includes about 65 acres of woodland walks. Craster is 2.5 miles north. Alnwick is 7 miles.
