About The Old Corn Crush

The Old Corn Crush sleeps up to six people in three bedrooms, providing very comfortable accommodation for families in a rural location close to gorgeous Northumberland beaches. Whether you're coming from abroad or enjoying a British self-catering staycation, this beautiful holiday home has been lovingly renovated by the owner and decorated to complement the coastal surroundings. The house is in Togston, less than a mile from Amble Links Beach, in the perfect location for exploring Northumberland's countryside, coast and castles.

Amble has two beaches. Little Shore is a sandy beach between the promenade and the pier. It's suitable for swimming, with the best times being the two hours on either side of high tide. Amble Links is longer, with views towards Coquet Island lighthouse. It's a beautiful choice for a walk, particularly if you include Pan Poing and Wellhaugh Point. Whatever your preferred way to enjoy the seaside, you'll find it here. Run or cycle along the traffic-free path between Alnwick and Warkworth, book lessons at the local surf school, or hire a kayak or a SUP and brush up on your skills. Walk along the beach to Cresswell Bay via Druridge Bay and Hauxley.

Local attractions include Alnwick Castle, better known to fans of the Harry Potter films as Hogwarts. Celebrate a special occasion at the Alnwick Treehouse restaurant or wander through its gardens. Warkworth Castle is nearby, while Dunstaburgh Castle and Bamburgh Castle are 14 miles and 24 miles respectively. Nature lovers can book a sightseeing boat trip around Lindisfarne to see the sea birds and grey seals, go to Coquet Island, or sit by the mouth of Amble Harbour for the chance to see seals and dolphins. York, Durham, Newcastle, Berwick upon-Tweed and Edinburgh are close enough for a day trip by train from Alnmouth.

The Old Corn Crush is an old farm building with rustic features and very comfortable furnishings. Guests love the location and all the special touches like the high-quality bedding, delicious welcome basket stocked with local goodies, and the practical features that include a large utility room with space to dry wetsuits, coats and walking boots.

Location (Northumberland)

Accommodation Comprises:

The Old Corn Crush has been transformed from a period farm building and given a fresh lease of life as a beautiful self-catering holiday cottage. Accommodation is entirely on ground floor level.

  • Entrance hallway that welcomes you in. A shallow step leads up into the living room.
  • Dual aspect windows fill the living room with natural light throughout the day, amplified by the vaulted ceiling, warm white walls, and colourful furnishings. Sit back on the deep sofa with your feet up and the Smart TV on. The cottage has efficient central heating, but a log burner adds an irresistible cosy touch in winter.
  • Across the hallway, a huge kitchen/diner is the best place to start the day with a leisurely breakfast at the vintage pine table. The owners have given it a modern country that feels perfect for family self-catering. Appliances include a farmhouse range cooker, two electric ovens, a wine cooler, and a dishwasher.
  • A separate utility room with fridge freezer provides laundry and cleaning facilities and space to hang coats and wetsuits to dry out of the way.
  • Luxuriate in the spacious primary bedroom furnished with a king-sized bed, dressing table, wardrobe, and bedside tables with reading lights. The ensuite has a shower, heated towel rail, shaving light and shaver point, WC and a handbasin.
  • Guests will love the second bedroom, which features a king-sized sleigh bed with bedside tables and lights, a wardrobe and a chair.
  • Two oak single beds provide accommodation for children, teens or adults in the third bedroom. It has a dressing table/desk and hanging storage.
  • Soak in the bath or freshen up in the overhead shower in the family bathroom. A heated towel rail is a welcome addition, as is the shaver light and point.

Outside: A sheltered courtyard garden has seating and a charcoal barbecue. There is secure bike storage and off-street parking for three cars.

Additional Information: WiFi, bed linen, bath towels and utilities are all included with the self-catering rental. A travel cot and a highchair are available - guests to bring beach towels and cot bedding if required. Pets are not allowed on the property, and there is a non-smoking policy for the house and the garden.
