The Old School House

If you want to venture further, Holy Island is 20 minutes up the coast with Castle and Priory, Alnwick with Castle and Gardens is also a 20 minute journey… The charming fishing village of Seahouses is just 3 miles away, with boat trips to the islands and a range of amenities for all the family.
