Take a boat trip to the Farne Islands, famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony, and try your luck at fishing. Or enjoy a round of golf on the links golf course and admire the spectacular views across the sweeping coastline, north to Bamburgh, south to Beadnell and out to sea towards the Farne Islands on the horizon. There are several shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants within this friendly village, and horse riding can be arranged on its outskirts. Only a couple of miles north of Farne Cottage is the picture postcard village of Bamburgh, protected by its dramatic fortress, which commands the power and presence of the seasoned film set it regularly becomes, and where the Grace Darling Museum is worth a visit.
The wide expanse of golden and often empty sandy beaches this region is renowned for, is perfect for a romantic stroll to feel the sand between your toes and watch the waves lap against the shoreline. The tidal island of Lindisfarne, locally known as Holy Island and the birthplace of Christianity, can be viewed from here too. A little further north is the bird sanctuary at Budle Bay, and at low tide a vast expanse of mud flats is the home to countless thousands of sea and land birds making this location a haven for bird watchers. The sweep of golden sands at Beadnell Bay is popular with water sport enthusiasts, only two miles to the south. The elegant Georgian town of Berwick, which straddles the salmon-rich river Tweed, is 17 miles north and the historic market town of Alnwick, 12 miles inland, with its own magnificent castle, offers many facilities. Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction with its grand cascading waterfall, and restaurant set within the largest tree house in Europe.
