    Description

    OUR HOLIDAY COTTAGES
    We have fifteen self catering holiday cottages on our beautiful 350 acre farm, with acres of woodland and marvellous views to the Northumberland coast and Cheviot Hills. The holiday cottages, set in landscaped gardens in the middle of the estate, are all of an exceptional standard.

    Beacon Hill has won more awards for quality than almost any other similar business in England. We are the only business to have reached the final of England's Self-Catering Holiday of the Year on three occasions, and the only one to have won this prestigious award twice, in 1991 and 2000.

    We won North East of England Self Catering Holiday of the Year 2006. This was the fourth time we won this award, having entered four times!

    Each holiday cottage is fully equipped with everything one could possibly need, including colour television, fan-assisted and microwave ovens, dishwasher, washer-drier and deep freeze. All have central heating, masses of books, colour television, radio, quality pictures and prints, comfortable chairs and superb views; most even have log fires. All cottages have a CD player, and you can access your e-mail by WiFi in the reception using either your own laptop or our computer and printer.

    Location description

    Beacon Hill Wood
    Beacon Hill has been a settlement for thousands of years. Evidence of an Iron Age camp can be seen in the ground surrounding the cottages. Beacon Hill Wood is a prominent local feature and the hill and the wood can be viewed for miles around. It is only 200 yards from the cottages to the entrance to the wood. Younger guests enjoy completing the Harry Potter Trail, which runs through the wood and has given much pleasure to children of all ages over the years.

    We are very lucky to have 40 acres of private woodland on our doorstep and we have recently planted 900 new hardwood trees to ensure its continuing survival.

    The local ornithological club have put up a lot of nest boxes in the wood, and you will often see bird watchers in the avenue as it is one of the best places locally to see many of our summer visitors. Almost 90 bird species have been recorded at Beacon Hill. In addition, you will see red squirrels and badgers if you are lucky. Roe deer are also regular visitors.

    Beaches of Northumberland
    When staying at Beacon Hill Farm on a luxury self catering holiday near the coast, why not sample some of Northumberlands finest beaches? The beaces and coastline in Northumberland is some of the most spectacular in the UK.
    Unlike many parts of Britain, there are still uncrowded, room-to-breathe and unspoilt beaches in Northumbria - often stretching for mile after mile, with hardly a soul in sight. Check out thiswonderful coast with beaches, some of which were voted, in a survey conducted by the National Trust, among the 50 best beaches in the UK. Our region excels in great beaches and Embleton was voted the best beach in the Britain! I can only think that it was an error of judgement that caused Bamburgh and Druiridge Bay to be omitted. Maybe they didn't want too many beaches in one county!

    Other activities

    Beacon Hill Spa

    The Spa is open from 7.00 am to 10.00 pm every day of the year. It is a large building in a wonderful location located just a short walk through the grounds from the holiday cottages. There are a wide range of treatments available at the Spa. The pool is heated to 30 degrees and there are tables and chairs in which one can enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee. There are six showers and two loos in the building and three different rooms in which one can relax. In addition to the changing areas, we have two dedicated baby changing rooms complete with everything a parent might need.

    Our outdoor leisure facilities include ...

    ... an Adventure Playground - younger children will love this large, covered adventure area; with its wood chip flooring, this is a safe yet exciting area for the younger child.

    ... the Tennis Court is a green en-tout-cas court, which is available from dawn till dusk. It is south facing and sheltered and is playable all year round.

    ... the Games Room is a large, heated room next to the pool. Equipped with table tennis, pool, bar football and a lounge area with colour TV, this makes a great meeting place for children of all ages (allowing their parents to enjoy the Spa in peace and quiet).

    ... Riding is available at Kimmerston Riding School near Wooler (telephone 01668 216283). It is possible to go on beach rides on the sands at Lindisfarne - this is a superb experience! Slate Hall Riding Centre in Seahouses (telephone 01665 720320) have a varied selection of horses and ponies and can offer lessons and treks suitable for both novice and experienced riders. Riding times can change daily, so please telephone in advance to book your ride. In winter, riding is usually available only in the mornings and weekends.

    ... the Cricket Net has a green hard surface and has proved popular with children of all ages. We also have a cradle slip catcher, although most guests think it is either a deck chair or 'something to kill sheep in'!

    ... the Football Pitch is situated to the west of the gardens. 'Look, Dad, there are proper nets!' is the usual comment. Why this is so unusual, I am not sure, but many aspiring David Beckhams seem to have fun between the posts.

    ... the Croquet Lawn seems to provide a location for many friendly arguments - mainly about the rules!

    ... the Trampoline is 12 feet in diameter and seems to be a magnet for children of all ages.

    ... the Harry Potter Trail in the 20 acre Beech wood adjoining the gardens is great fun and is something the whole family can enjoy - and there are prizes for those indomitable souls that complete it!

    ... Fly Fishing at Meg's Lake is an idyllic pastime. Our guests are welcome to fish on our beautifully located two-acre lake, which is set within a 20 acre nature reserve established on the farm in 1997. The views from the lake are breathtaking and, as one guest remarked, 'One is surrounded by birdsong and tranquillity.' The lake is stocked with rainbow trout and may be fished all year round.

    Directions

    Travel Directions
    If you are coming from the north use the A697, the Coldstream road. The A697 starts south of Edinburgh, off the A68. The A697 runs through Coldstream and Wooler to Longhorsley.

    Turn right immediately one enters the village, turn left for Stanton 350 yards later, then drive 1 mile to a cross-roads. Turn left, travel half a mile up hill then turn right to Beacon Hill. Take the second drive and drive to the top.

    If you are coming from the south follow the signs to Morpeth on the A1, then turn onto the A697 north of Morpeth (do NOT go into Morpeth).

    After half a mile you will pass a large garden centre, Heighlygate Nurseries. Two hundred yards past the nurseries take the left turn which is signposted to Beacon Hill. It is very easy to overshoot this turn and end up in Longhorsley!

    Once you have turned off it is two and a half miles up hill to the farm. Follow the signposts. Take the second drive on arrival at Beacon Hill. Drive to your cottage if you know where it is and just go in and start your holiday. Someone will be around to welcome you and show you the Spa.
