Only a few steps from the boats, lifeboat house and the golden sands in the sweeping bay, this tasteful, well-furnished, terraced holiday home is an ideal base from which to explore the magnificent Heritage coastline of Northumberland. The small fishing village of Newbiggin-by-the-Sea has the only east coast offshore statue, â€˜Ebb and Floâ€™, set in its picturesque bay; it also has a family ice cream shop in the centre of the promenade serving award-winning ice creams and coffee. The maritime centre, at the end of the bay, houses the old lifeboat and hosts regular exhibitions. Nearby, Woodhorn Museum puts on regular events and holds many genealogy records. The pretty, historic town of Morpeth is only 8 miles with some bespoke shops, plenty of tea rooms and pubs, as well as a riverside walk. The thriving fishing port of Amble is only 13 miles north with a popular Sunday market and small fish restaurants. From Amble you can follow the coastline towards Craster, Beadnell and Bamburgh, taking in the golden beaches and unspoilt miles of coastline and castles. Regular buses can be taken from Newbiggin-by-the-Sea to the vibrant city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, where you can explore the quayside and the historic streets and shops. A train to Edinburgh or York can be taken from nearby Morpeth, which make fabulous day trips. Explore the National Park and Kielder, perhaps stopping off at Otterburn Mill Shop to pick up a bargain. Hadrianâ€™s Wall is easily accessible via the A69, where you can also visit Corbridge and Hexham. The Mules is ideally located for exploring the whole of this unspoilt and friendly county.
