This semi-detached holiday home sleeps five in its three bedrooms that all have plenty of storage space. The king-sized has a desk that can be used as a make-up station and there is a twin bedroom and a single. The upstairs benefits from a bathroom with a shower over the tub and downstairs, there is a shower room with a basin and WC.
Freshly decorated, the kitchen comes with a dishwasher and washing machine, there is a contemporary dining area, and the sitting room with its bay window has a log burning stove.
Outside there is a small driveway for your car, a lawned area and a patio with alfresco dining furniture and a wooden bench where you can soak up the sun.
To the north of Seahouses’ harbour, there is a good beach with clean water, where you can unpack a picnic and find a spot on the dunes where, on a clear day, you can see Holy Island that is one of the 28 Farne Islands. Cruises out to the island regularly leave from the harbour and nature lovers will be blown away by the bird and sea life that some islands are home to. There are two cruise operators, Serenity with its catamaran-style boats and Billy Shiels’ restored RNLI lifeboat, the Grace Darling. There’s thousands of puffins nesting in the spring and all year round you can get up close and personal to colonies of grey seals and you might even catch sight of a school of bottle-nosed dolphins and minke whales.
Before you set off for Bamburgh beach, where you can hire kayaks, paddle and surfboards, if members of your group have always wanted to “hang ten”, then grab the opportunity to take a lesson in surfing. If you are into history, then the inhabited 1,400-year-old Bamburgh Castle is worth a visit. Its King’s Hall and Armoury rooms have artefacts dating back hundreds of years. The nine-acre grounds on the 147ft outcrop overlooking the sea is dog-friendly and there is a café and toilets where you can refuel before heading back to Seahouses.
Further afield is Alnwick with its iconic castle and grounds; the Holy Island of Lindisfarne with its priory that attracts thousands of pilgrims every year and the Dark Skies Park that is the best of its kind in the country.
Be prepared to be spoilt for choice in the splendid location with world-renowned islands less than four miles out to sea and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that forms part of the Northumberland National Park.
Hazonleigh provides accommodation for a small group or a family and is ideally situated close to a golf course, the harbour and a beach that boasts good clean water. Whether it is enjoying fish and chips on the quayside or treating yourself to lobster thermidor at Swallowfish’s Fisherman’s Kitchen, you are going to be in seventh heaven in this working harbour, especially if you prefer a quieter seaside retreat. The older set might want to play a round of golf at the 18-hole Seahouses Golf Course and the kids can compete in a game of Beach Crazy Golf at the Bunker that is also 18 holes with an excellent value for money family ticket at £10.
Hazonleigh has a contemporary, freshly refurbished interior that will add a dollop of luxury to your stay away. Park up, release the pooches on the lawn, unpack and relax in this immaculate holiday home, knowing that your days are going to be filled with fun in the sun.
