About the Owner

My husband has lived at Elwick all of his life & when we got married in 1970 we set up home here. We have three daughters, all married now, but the oldest one, her husband & their two boys now run the farm. They moved into our house but we still live on the farm. We have been involved with holiday cottages for thirty years now & thoroughly enjoy meeting visitors who have now become friends & new ones who we hope will. As we live 'on the spot' we are available to answer questions or sort any problems that anyone may have.

Lovely setting, great Northumberland base

  • 4 of 5

Elwick farm was a great base for exploring all that Northumberland has to offer. The setting is beautiful, with only a short walk across the fields to the nearest bracket and lambs at the end of the garden. The cottage itself was lovely with everything that we needed for our stay. The owner was very welcoming - we particularly enjoyed the delicious lemon cake in arrival.

Location

From the Owner

Our cottages were all used as farm workers homes & have gradually been changed over the years as they have been vacated. We live in a beautiful peaceful part of the world & consider ourselves very lucky. When we return from a holiday we always say 'well, our coastline is beautiful here too'. The population here is small & the roads not nearly as busy as further south, so getting around is not a problem.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Newcastle upon Tyne at 50 Miles Nearest Barpub : Bamburgh at 5 Miles Nearest Golf : Bamburgh at 5 Miles Nearest Motorway : A1 at 2 Miles Nearest Beach : Ross & Bamburgh at 5 Miles

Coast/Beach:

There are miles of white, sandy beaches on our North Northumberland coastline. Ross Back Sands, a mostly deserted beach is the nearest (next door farm) but demands a half hour walk from where you park the car- but well worth the walk. Bamburgh is a 10 minute drive away to the south and there are lots of parking spaces. From there you find beaches all the way down the coast. Also to the north, you will find Goswick beach,25 mins. & Cocklawburn a little further on.

Travel:

Nearest airport is Newcastle (50miles) and Edinburgh is 75 miles away.

The nearest railway stations are Berwick-upon-Tweed (14 miles away)to the north & to the south, Alnmouth(20 miles) these are both on the main London to Edinburgh East Coast Line. A car is totally essential here and car hire can be arranged in Berwick.

Distances:

Belford is the nearest village & is two and a half miles, Bamburgh village is five miles away, Wooler is twelve miles away, Berwick-upon-Tweed is 14 miles away(15-20 mins) and Alnwick is 17 miles away(25 mins).

Further Details:

The Doctor is found at Belford Health Centre. There are Infirmaries with A&E at Berwick & Alnwick. Belford has a supermarket, post office, newsagent, beautician, a farm shop, a coffee shop, a fish & chip shop and three pubs. For larger supermarkets you find Tesco, Morrison, Asda, Aldi & M&S Simply Food in Berwick, then in Alnwick there are Sainsbury, Morrison & Lidl. There is no bank in Belford but there is a cash machine in the supermarket(open 8am 'til 10pm). Banks are at Wooler, Seahouses, Berwick & Alnwick. There are many pubs, restaurants & cafes in the area. Alnwick Castle, of Harry Potter fame, also has a wonderful garden with lots of water features(take spare clothes for children!) and a huge Tree House with rope walkways - great fun. Alnwick Town is only a short walk away & has shops & restaurants. Berwick-upon-Tweed, an old walled town has lovely walks on the historic Elizabethan walls by the River Tweed. Beautiful Bamburgh is a must with the Castle towering over the unspoilt village, then just along the road is Seahouses with it's lovely harbour. It is from here that you take a trip to the Farne Islands to see all manner of seabirds & seals. Booking offices are on the harbour. Beadnell is where you will find some water sports. You can walk from Craster (famous for it's kippers) to Dunstanburgh Castle, a little further south.
