About East End House

East End House has a real sense of "home", making visitors feel relaxed and welcome from the moment they arrive. The spacious holiday cottage is on the 600-acre Annstead Farm, a mixed farm run by the Mellor family for over 25 years. The location is fantastic, just over the road from the Annstead Dunes Nature Reserve and the beach, and within walking distance (half a mile) of pubs in Seahouses and Beadnell. There is space for up to six people to sleep in three lovely bedrooms, with the opportunity to book the cottage with one or more of the other properties on the farm to accommodate groups of extended family or friends.

Annstead Farm is part of the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and one of the most unspoiled coastal landscapes in the UK. The cottage is close to the Annstead Dunes Nature Reserve, with stunning walks accessible from the front door. There is nothing like walking along a Northumberland beach for leaving you feeling refreshed and revived, whether it be under azure blue skies or granite clouds. It's entirely possible to walk for miles along the shore and not encounter another soul, enjoying the sort of Big Sky views of which those living in cities and towns can only dream. If you have always imagined cantering on horseback along a deserted stretch of sand, then this is the place to turn that fantasy into a wonderfully memorable reality.

The farm is about half a mile from each of the coastal towns of Beadnell and Seahouses. Beadnell's beach curves like a horseshoe so it always feels protected, and its sandy shore is a particular favourite with families as well as kiteboarders, kayakers and wake-boarders. The clear waters are excellent for salmon and trout fishing. Seahouses is the place to go for a boat tour to the Farne Islands where seals and seabirds thrive in the protected environment. Both Seahouses and Beadnell have excellent pubs, while Seahouses also has a choice of supermarkets and shops and is an excellent place to buy food for your self-catering holiday.

Days out can include visiting Bamburgh Castle and Holy Island, walking along the coast, taking a trip to Longstone Lighthouse, cycling, playing golf or sailing. If you can't resist the lure of the city, then Newcastle-Upon-Tyne is about an hour's drive from the cottage, while if you love a fancy house, then Alnwick Castle is the place for you.

However you choose to spend your time, you can be sure of a warm welcome and a comfortable stay at East End House.
