Description

One of seven similar holiday properties on site, ideal for discovering castles, beaches and more.

"Views towards Bamburgh Castle over harbour and sea – within two miles of Beadnell’s sweeping sands . . ."

With fine views across the little harbour and its working quayside (not Gull’s Crest or Crag End), Farne House Holiday Homes are within a few hundred yards of the shops, restaurants, inns and other amenities of the fishing village and colourful seaside resort of Seahouses. Converted and refurbished to extremely high standards throughout, the properties here are grouped around a central courtyard only yards away from a fine indoor heated swimming pool and sauna. Available all the year round, the pool has a constant depth of 4ft 6in and features a south-facing glass sun living room to one side.
Within easy walking distance, the bustling harbour boasts a fleet of brightly painted fishing cobbles and a few larger boats, and the town itself provides a good range of facilities, including golf, sailing and horse riding. There are calm weather boat trips to the offshore Farne Islands, a wildlife sanctuary for puffins, oyster-catchers, kittywakes, guillemots and grey seals. The 28 islands form a nature reserve owned by the National Trust and, though half of them are submerged at high tide, landing is allowed daily in summer on the largest, Farne Island – where there is a nature trail, lighthouse and 14th-century chapel.
At Beadnell, 2 miles to the south, the dune-backed sands of Beadnell Bay provide ideal conditions for water sports. Formerly an important fishing village and smugglers’ haunt, Beadnell now enjoys a reputation as a centre for sailing and has the unique distinction of being the only East Coast port with a west-facing harbour. The sandy beach running the length of the bay is safe for swimming and is overlooked by 18th-century lime kilns. In the village stands a three-storey, 16th-century peel tower, which now forms part of an inn. Five minutes’ drive to the north of Farne House Holiday Homes stands the mighty fortress of Bamburgh Castle, easily visible across the wide stretch of sand from Seahouses.
Just a few miles further on is yet more historical, natural and scenic interest at Holy Island. Here, the fairytale Lindisfarne Castle was first a 16th-century fort, then a ruin which was redesigned by Edwin Lutyens in 1902 and is now owned by the National Trust.
Inland is a country of massive hills and moors, fast rivers and great forests. Between the Cheviots and the sea, there is easy touring through fields of corn and pastures dotted with solid stone hamlets and lined by dry-stone walls which patchwork the countryside. Shops 500 yards.

Entrance can be either from the courtyard or direct into the cottage from harbour path. Entrance hall. Ground floor: Double bedroom with king-size, four-poster bed and sea views. Modern bathroom with toilet. First floor: Sitting room and dining area with sea and harbour views from full-length picture windows. Small galley-style kitchen. Twin bedroom. Bunk bedroom with full-size bunks. Shower room with toilet.

SUPERB INDOOR HEATED SWIMMING POOL AND SAUNA:

The seven cottages at Farne House enjoy the use of a superb indoor heated swimming-pool provided for the exclusive use of only these cottages. Available throughout the year, and open daily for guests’ use from 8am-8pm, the pool has a constant depth of 1.2m (4ft 6in) and has been designed to the highest specification. It is heated and benefits from the latest purification and de-humidification system. With its sunny, south-facing glassed conservatory lounge to one side, this all-weather facility makes Farne House a fine choice for a Northumberland coastal holiday, whatever the season.

    In need of some serious updating. The upstairs bathroom door doesn't close, the floor is in a terrible state, toilet extremely noisy. Hob in the kitchen was broken (one of the burners does not switch off unless the master switch turned off). Mattresses were uncomfortable. Decor and furniture tired. Windows difficult to shut properly - wouldn't like to be there on cold days. Swimming pool was nice, but no sound insulation means if someone is in the pool, we could hear every single word as if we were in the pool too. Also, the sauna didn't work, the steps into the pool are loose and the shower area was outdated and in need of some updates.

    Puffin Crag is advertised as a luxury apartment. Luxury does not have dirty, smelly bathroom carpets, totally dated kitchen with a cooker that does not function correctly (the oven did not work and the hob was greasy and ancient) Hot water was not as it should be - anyone having an evening bath used up the supply. Telephone communication regarding this was curt and suggestions for using an over ride switch did not work! Furnishings were adequate but showing signs of wear and tear. The main bedroom was ok with a very comfortable bed but the other two bedrooms were quite simple. People have mentioned being influenced by the outlook and this I can agree with. The outlook is superb but this does not justify the high rental charge. I would not recommend Puffin Crag unless the rental was considerably reduced.

    Fantastic cottage & pool - view over harbour and sea is much better than the photos.
