Bolt Hole by the beach is a lovely spacious terraced property on a quiet street, just off the sea front with easy access and on street parking. Situated just 50m from the promenade it affords holiday makers an expansive elevated view of the full bay of Newbiggin in panorama. The property can comfortably sleep up to 5 people in 2 rooms and provides a superb base for visiting the Northumbrian coastline, Newcastle and the Scottish borders.
The area is rich in wildlife - with breath taking scenery and the gorgeous coastline provides a choice of many scenic drives, perfect for walking, bird watching or for a cycling holiday with the family. The property is modern, light and airy and is close to the heart of the village with its wealth of eateries, shops and art and leisure facilities. Newbiggin by the Sea is a historic fishing village that lines the northern arc of a sandy North Sea bay. The main street is lined with mature trees and the village is not a through route for traffic. There is a children's play area right on the beach, close to the new Maritime Centre with its beach front café and gift shop. Even in the height of the summer months, the beach (recently categorised as 'Excellent' by the Environment Agency) is never overcrowded so you will be able to 'relax to the max' during your stay.
We are perfectly placed for an abundance of activities. Go Ape Tree Top Adventure Centre is only a 15 mile drive and the area is rich in castles, gardens and history. Alnwick Castle, the location for Harry Potter's school Hogwarts, with beautiful gardens and a giant tree house for children to play in, is less than 40 minutes’ drive away. Balliffgate Museum Gallery in Alnwick is well worth a visit; as is the stunning castle at Bamburgh, spectacularly situated on a peak of basalt, overlooking the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and the gorgeous beach. The observatory at Kielder Water and Forest Park is less than a 30 minute drive and Beamish Museum is a great day out for all the family. There are numerous children's water parks, sand parks and soft play parks in the region.
