The small coastal hamlet has a recently restored 15th Century Pele Tower, small village ice cream shop, and 'The Drift Cafe' featured recently in the Sunday Times 'Best places to eat by the Sea' - more local amenities and shops can be found in the market towns of Morpeth and Alnwick, as well as schooling for all ages.

Gardens - the house is approached via an electrically operated gated stone pillared entrance, opening to a long gravel driveway and beautifully maintained gardens. The stone wall is a lovely feature, with the garden extending beyond this down to the beach and sea. The formal gardens are lawned with feature borders and rockeries, along with a terraced seating area with pizza oven, ideal for outside entertaining and dining. There is a concrete sea wall for protection from the sea, in addition to solid bedrock.
Stone Garage - A handsome stone building, the former stables/coach house, and now a double garage and garden store. The two storey building could lend itself to a variety of uses, including the conversion to a holiday cottage/annexe or home office/studio (subject to normal planning and building consents). The garage has three separate entrances, with a central arched access with a staircase to the first floor - Solar PVA slates, power and lighting.
Agent's Note - The Solar PVA system currently generates circa £1200 per annum, as well as providing energy for the house, with an additional solar system pre-heating the hot water for the house. All of the windows, doors and skirtings are hardwood.
