Beautiful Retreats in unforgettable locations for Summer 2017

Why go?

High Mill, sleeping up to 10, has ample space for entertainment and relaxation making it an ideal getaway for family and friends get togethers. Enjoy some unforgettable feasts around the table for 10 in the open plan living area or head out to the large lawned garden with children’s play equipment, table tennis and outdoor furniture for some open-air downtime.

Nearest beach

Beadnell Bay is a crescent-shaped beach backed by dunes popular with watersport enthusiasts and young families. There is a car park and toilet and washing facilities – a necessity when young children are in tow – plus two village pubs and a café in walking distance should you wish to dine out. You can also pick up the coastal path from here, walking down the beach towards Newton where you’ll find another sandy bay and an excellent pub called The Ship Inn.

The Ship Inn. Live music, real ale and seafood fresh off the boat at this by the beach pub in Newton by the Sea. Relax in the beer garden while the children play safely on the shore.

Grab a bite to eat at…

Don’t go home without…

Rainy day tip

Have a pool competition in High Mill’s games room or venture out to Barter Books in Alnwick – a second hand book store in a former railway station with a café and lots of reading nooks.
