Close to Alnwick, the home of "Hogwarts", this property is ideal for a family break or a weekend with friends.. Blue Caps is a beautiful detached property nestled in a peaceful cul-de-sac within the heart of the welcoming coastal village of Beadnell. Furnished and equipped to a very good standard this deceptively spacious cottage oozes the epitome of style. The large open plan living space centres upon a welcoming woodburner ensuring Blue Caps is a cosy choice regardless of the season. French doors lead to a fully enclosed south-facing patio area; an idyllic spot to dine alfresco. The contemporary dining/kitchen areas are very well equipped. With four spacious double bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms too, Blue Caps is a particularly suitable choice for extended parties. Two of the bedrooms (one king and one twin) are located at one &lsquo;wing&rsquo; of the property leading from the living room, whereas the other two bedrooms (one king and one twin) are at the other, leading from the dining area &ndash; making this unique layout ideal for the gathering of families and friends alike. Beadnell is a popular holiday destination and offers local facilities including family and pet friendly pubs serving good food all within a gentle stroll from Blue Caps. A small sandy bay speckled with rocky outcrops is close by and leads to a long sandy beach that stretches to Seahouses, 2 miles north. The wide expanse of golden sandy beach Beadnell Bay is renowned for is a mere 10-minutes walk: a popular destination for water-sports enthusiasts, including sailing, sea kayaking, wind surfing and scuba diving. Beadnell Bay can truly be described as the jewel in Northumberland&rsquo;s seaside crown; idyllic for a romantic barefoot stroll in the sand to listen to the waves lap against the shoreline and inhale the invigorating sea air. Two miles up the coastline is the traditional fishing port of Seahouses, where boat trips to the nearby Farne Islands &ndash; famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony &ndash; depart regularly from its harbour. Here there are several charming tea rooms, quaint pubs and shops with horse-riding; fishing and golf on the links close by being only a sample of the many amenities available in this popular location. A further 3 miles up the coastline is the picturesque village of Bamburgh, which lies snuggled in the shadow of its majestic fortress and commands the power and presence of the seasoned television set it regularly becomes. Holy Island &ndash; the birthplace of Christianity and site of Lindisfarne Castle &ndash; can be seen from the unspoilt golden, sandy beach. Just a few miles inland is the bustling market town of Alnwick, with its own dramatic castle (and film location for Harry Potter&rsquo;s Hogwarts Academy!). Visitors will enjoy a trip to Alnwick Garden &ndash; a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden including the Grand Cascade waterfall and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe!
