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. Fidra sleeps 6 and its next door neighbour, Longstone, sleeps 4, so these properties could be booked together for larger parties of up to 10. Fidra has 3 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 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 here on the rugged north Northumberland coast. If you have a dog, bring him or her along to enjoy the stunning beach walks.
