Holy Island Bay - Stables Beal

Book Now >
Newly launched August 2017.......

Tucked at the end of a coastal lane, gently lapping the waters of Holy Island Bay, a stay at the Stables promises carefree days and captivating coastal views. Sitting right in the midst of the Lindisfarne Nature Reserve, this is a walking and wildlife paradise, or simply an idyllic spot for those seeking a generous helping of rest and relaxation.

The interior features a soothing colour palette with pretty cosmetic finishes reflective of its coastal location. A key feature of the property is the very lovely conservatory overlooking the bay towards Lindisfarne - a dream spot to watch the sunrise cast its colours over the island outline.

A separate sitting room features a heritage scheme from Farrow & Ball with sumptuous linen sofas and Harris Tweed accents, while a large coach house window extends onto a private patio area with outside furniture - ideal for that first morning coffee and a freshly baked croissant.

Upstairs are two bright, comfortable bedrooms with pretty detailing and Velux windows to take advantage of the light, each with en-suite facilities.

There is a large shared sea-facing garden to the rear, and for larger groups looking to holiday together, the cottage can be booked in conjunction with The Byre (sleeps 6) which sits right next door.

Local amenities

The cottage sits next to many close visitor attractions with local services nearby, including the wonderful Barn at Beal (3.5 miles) for lingering lunches savouring the catch-of-the-day or informal evening dining.

You can get ‘corner shop’ provisions from the Beal Garage on the A1, or 4 miles will take you to the village of Belford which offers a range of local amenities including the Sunnyhills Farm Shop which sells fabulous local produce as well as serving excellent coffee and tasty food. Food fans will be delighted by the wealth of local goodies on offer here including Doddington Dairy ice cream, Northumberland cheeses, Lindisfarne Oysters, Chainbridge Honey, and Craster Kippers to name but a few.

More extensive amenities can be found in the Elizabethan walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed (6 miles) which has a mix of high street and independent shopping, as well as two large supermarkets, a Marks & Spencers food outlet and a good selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Activities and attractions

The whole area is bursting with things to do here, dotted by a trail of castles and fortifications interspersed with pretty seaside villages all the way up and down the coast.

Sitting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within the Lindisfarne Nature Reserve, nature lovers, birdwatchers and photographers will be captivated by the vast variety of wildlife and birdlife right on the doorstep. This is a spectacular stretch for migrant and wading birds, and in the evening, you can wrap up and head down to the bay to experience big sky views and some amazing sunsets.

For walking and relaxation, the beaches on this stretch of Northumberland coastline are an absolute delight. Ross Bank Sands, Cheswick and Goswick offer vast, deserted stretches of golden sands where you can wander to your hearts content, or why not cross the causeway to the mystical Holy Island of Lindisfarne to trace the legend of St. Cuthbert, including the chance to see the odd grey seal bobbing inquisitively in the sea or basking on the sand flats.

A must-visit is the beach at Bamburgh (10 miles) with its glorious curves of white sandy beach backed by deep sand dunes which is a top spot for picnics, walkers and water sports enthusiasts, with the dramatic outline of Bamburgh Castle as the stunning backdrop.

For cycling, this area has plenty to offer with an abundance of trails and waymarked routes suitable for all ages and abilities from family routes, leisure routes, and mountain biking trails with everything from easy coastal stretches to high energy treks along the course of the Sandstone Way which sits right on the doorstep.

Take a boat trip from Seahouses to the outstanding Farne Islands nature reserve and seabird sanctuary; head to Craster to sample their legendary oak smoked kippers; or head inland to experience the medieval splendour of Alnwick Castle with its fantastic child-friendly activity programme inspired by the wizardly magic and broomstick antics of Harry Potter. Enjoy!
