Description

This former barn has been sympathetically converted into 2 semi-detached houses, to make the most of the superb location affording sea views from many windows. Longstone sleeps 4 and its next door neighbour, Fidra, sleeps 6, so these properties could be booked together for larger parties of up to 10.

Longstone has 2 bedrooms on the ground floor as well as the family bathroom, and the first floor provides an open-plan living/dining/kitchen space with spectacular views from large picture windows. Sit with your morning coffee or at mealtimes and gaze out at the Farne Islands in one direction and the remains of Dunstanburgh Castle in another. On fine days enjoy less than a mile's walk to the unspoilt beach at Embleton and walk north to Low Newton or south along the beach to the National Trust's Dunstanburgh Castle and Craster. After a walk, the golf club at Embleton provides a warm welcome and refreshments or, if you are walking further afield, The Ship Inn at Low Newton has its own micro-brewery and serves food (lobster its speciality) or the Jolly Fisherman in Craster has a lovely eating area overlooking the sea. Don't forget to try the renowned Craster Kippers from Robson's traditional smokehouse in Craster!

Enjoy a very comfortable week at Longstone Cottage on the rugged north Northumberland coast, drinking in the sea vistas whatever the weather! If you have a dog, bring him or her along to enjoy the stunning beach walks.

Reviews

This was a great place to stay - fantastic views over the coast, great location with walks to local castle, pubs and bays. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable (albeit with very creaky noisy stairs!). The beach was about 15mins walk away and was beautiful. The local pubs served good food and the local playground was an added bonus - my son loved it! Only negative of the week was the arrival of the owner of the adjacent Seahouses on Saturday as we were leaving- a very rude woman who obviously has a problem with holiday lets - she made a big point of saying she was an owner occupier. She complained vociferously about us walking on her property - this was a path to the car park which wasn't marked as private. This was a complete over reaction as it was literally just a few steps on her 'drive'. While her rudeness didn't spoil our holiday it's a shame that our last interaction was negative - everyone else we had met had been really friendly.
