A one minute stroll will take you on to the golden sands of Embleton Bay. With Newton Village to the north, and the iconic ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle to the south, this is one of the most magnificent stretches of beach to be found anywhere in the country. A real family beach where you can play for hours and, when the tide is low, the rock-pooling is great. The house, originally a pub, sits in its own grounds adjacent to Newton Pool Nature Reserve where a good variety of birds can be seen throughout the year and, if you are very lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the elusive otter. Straightforward links to the A1 make this a great base for exploring the delights of Northumberland. The house is light and airy seaside inspired space with cream walls, reclaimed and painted furniture, red, white and blue striped fabrics, pebble lamps, beach hut prints, birds, bunting and even a ship's bell that can be rung to announce dinner.

In England's spectacular North East, Yorkshire and Northumberland are both counties that offer something for everyone. Yorkshire is world renowned for the beauty of its countryside and its scenery, reaching from the Dales in the west to the Moors in the east. There are also historic towns and cities, a spectacular coastline, much of which is in the care of the Trust, and some of the most magnificent historic houses in the country. The cathedral city of York, where the Trust has two holiday apartments, has a huge variety on offer to visitors - from magnificent York Minster to the medieval Shambles, an area steeped in history and now rich in gift and antique shops alongside fashionable boutiques. Northumberland too abounds in magnificent scenery with wide open stretches of moorland and a long and dramatic coastline. Steeped in history, protecting the border with Scotland since the days when Hadrian's army built the famous Wall, the county also has a wonderful collection of historic houses and castles including Cragside, Wallington and Lindisfarne, all of which are in the care of the Trust. The Trust now has cottages close to Hadrian's Wall itself and in many other spectacular locations including Alnwick and Fountains Abbey, a World Heritage Site.
Long ago, Northumbria was a land at the very edge of a great empire. And even today, the wind sweeping across the hills still seems to carry the distant sounds of Roman legions marching along Hadrian\'s Wall. The scenery is as unspoilt as it was in those far-off times: it will certainly appeal to those wanting to discover high and lonely places and untouched beaches. The National Trust owns a range of historic buildings in the area including Lindisfarne Castle, Wallington, Cragside and the shore- based Souter lighthouse.
