Beacon Hill Farm
Between the Cheviot Hills and the coastline
Luxury cottages in an idyllic setting with stunning views and superb leisure facilities.
All 15 cottages Visit Britain Gold Award -- 2010.
Green Tourism Silver Award 2010.
Beacon Hill, a 350 acre estate, sits between the magnificent Northumbrian coastline and the Northumberland National Park and the Cheviot Hills; Druridge Bay, with its 7 miles of empty golden sands, lies 8 miles to the east.
This is a beautiful estate, with 50 acres of ancient beech woods, 300 acres of parkland and grass fields; it is an ideal place for those that enjoy peace and tranquility or the walker or naturalist.
It would be difficult to exaggerate the beauty and tranquility to be found at Beacon Hill; the large number of annually returning guests, many of 15 or more years standing, is testament to this.
The luxury holiday cottages are situated in 15 acres of landscaped gardens bordering the beech wood, in the middle of the estate. The views across the fields to the coast and hills are magnificent; Northumberland is still a very unspoilt and quiet county with empty lanes and fabulous hedgerows, and Beacon Hill has a wonderful position in which to enjoy these riches.
The Cottages... are warm and welcoming, with masses of books and quality pictures, prints and furnishings. All are fully centrally heated; all (except Wood) have washer/driers, dishwashers and deep freezes. All have electric ovens, microwave, TV, radio, CD and DVD, IPod docks, Wi-Fi and Sky sports. All except Stable and Wood Cottages have open fires.
Electricity, fuel, logs, heating, linen and towels are included in the rent as are as many cots and high chairs that are required.
On arrival you will be greeted with a bottle of wine, homemade honey and mustard, a carton of milk, some tea, coffee and biscuits and in the summer, a vase of fresh flowers.
We can accommodate from a couple in Wood Cottage, a converted estate workshop, to a family of six in Quarry House, the second farmhouse for Beacon Hill. Many families chose to take more than one cottage and any combination of cottages works well as they are all dotted around 15 acres of gardens with the Spa in the centre. Full details of all the cottages with inside and outside photographs can be found on the web site.
Beacon Hill Spa
In the gardens a short walk from all the cottages, we have a wonderful Spa which is open from 7am until 9 pm daily. This is an exceptional facility with a sauna, steam room with heated granite seats, a Laconium...a warm dry heat therapy area, a jacuzzi an orangery and sun terraces to enjoy the stunning views to the south and west. A large gymnasium awaits the more energetic guest; a qualified beautician is on hand in the treatment rooms to pamper the less eager! You can also call on the services of a swimming, tennis or fly fishing coach.
There is also...
...a tennis court, a games room, an adventure play ground, a cricket net, a football pitch, a Harry Potter woodland trail, a woodland "sausage sizzle" camp and if fly fishing is your bent...we have a beautifully located 2 acre trout lake.
