Overview

Embrace your inner child at this quirky hut with retro beach vibes just a short drive from Northumberland’s stunning Heritage Coast

Just four miles from the glorious golden sands of Cheswick beach

With a nod to the timeless design and colour palette of traditional beach huts, this unique property has been lovingly designed by the owners to achieve all the fun of hut living with added space and comfort. 

Tucked away in rolling Northumbrian countryside, the hut is just a short drive from Cheswick Sands, one of Northumberland’s most impressive beaches with vast swathes of dune-backed sand and panoramic views to Holy Island.

There is accommodation for up to two adults and two children, with one double bed downstairs and two 3’ twin beds on the mezzanine floor. The upper level is accessed by a companionway ladder internally and an external set of steps and is only suitable for children who can manage to climb a ladder.

The open plan living area comprises sitting and dining space and a galley kitchen. A good size shower room provides an electric shower, basin and WC.

For the cooler months the hut is super-insulated and has electric tubular heating and an electric ‘real flame effect’ stove.

Guests can also hire Colin, a cutesy retro caravan at £20 per night (subject to availability) where the younger members of the family can have their own little mini adventure - a fun den for day use but set-up for sleeping capacity too! 

Two dogs are welcome and there are kennels on site if required. Horses are welcome with prior notice. There is grazing and stabling available on site at additional cost.

The Beach Hut sits alongside three shepherd's huts, FoxgloveTeasel and Cow Parsley each sleeping up to four guests which are ideal for guests who wish to holiday together. Foxglove is also adapted for guests who are mobility impaired.

Location

The Beach Hut is well located for exploring the local area, sitting approximately 4 miles from the stunning Northumberland coastline and around 12 miles from the Northumberland National Park. 

The Beach Hut sits approximately 3.5 miles from the village of Lowick where you can buy a range of provisions from the well-stocked village store, including freshly baked bread, cakes and scones as well as lovely local produce. 10 miles and 10.5 miles respectively will take you to the charming villages of Belford and Wooler where you will find a good selection of small town shopping, as well as a selection of eateries, inns and pubs. Alternatively a more extensive range of amenities, including large supermarkets, can be found in Berwick-upon-Tweed just a short 7.5 mile drive away.

Activities

With over 30 miles of stunning sandy beaches, guests are spoilt for choice. Cheswick, Goswick, Bamburgh and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne all sit nearby with pristine white sands perfect for sandcastle making, rock pools made for dabbling in, hidden coves and deep sheltered sand dunes ideal for cosy picnics, and stunning sunsets on a balmy summer evening.

The dramatic beauty of the Cheviot Hills can be accessed from Wooler (11 miles) where walkers and mountain bikers can follow the routes of ancient cattle drovers, taking in Iron Age stone fortifications and traces of Bronze Age hillforts amidst the tranquil and rugged landscape.

Follow the legend of St. Cuthbert with a visit to the Cuddy’s Cave a short walk exploring the area around this historic feature, or alternatively join Northumberland Park Rangers for a guided walk where you will learn much about the heritage and wildlife of the area and enjoy some outstanding vistas along the way. For coastal hikes, take time out to spot the rich birdlife on the Northumberland Coastal Path. 

For cycling, you will find everything from gentle low-level meanders to big hill country treks, including long-distance routes such as the Pennine Cycleway or the cycle challenges of the Wooler Wheel Hub. 

For sightseeing the area is punctuated by iconic castles, stately homes and fortifications which are testament to the area’s rich and dramatic past. Pay a visit to the magnificent castles of Alnwick, Bamburgh or Chillingham where you can discover tales of bloody battles and royal rebellion, or enjoy the stunning stately homes and gardens of Belsay, Cragside, Wallington or Paxton House. Harry Potter was filmed at Alnwick Castle and children will particularly enjoy the wizardly magic of characters inspired by Hagrid and Harry, including a spot of Broomstick Training!

Foodies will enjoy the fine local produce in one of the many pubs or restaurants in the area - everything from the freshest fish and chips to fine dining experiences. The very popular Barn at Beal is nearby with amazing views over to Holy Island or perhaps partake in a tipple of infamous Lindisfarne Mead.

For action sports, surfing, kitesurfing and coasteering is available at Bamburgh, Beadnell and St. Abbs Head with teaching from local instructors, while canoeing can be arranged on the nearby coastal waters or river systems.

There are also extensive cycling and mountain biking trails in and around the area, with the Coast and Castles route a firm favourite. For riding, Swinhoe, Kimmerston and Slate Hall riding centres all come recommended, offering lessons, treks and wonderful beach rides.

For fishing, guests can head to the lakes at Chatton which offers fly fishing for trout, or try Coldingham Loch for bank or boat fishing - both helpful and friendly venues.
