The Strand has a most enviable position set well back from the coastal road and having stunning uninterrupted sea views. St Aidan’s sits on the periphery of the village of Seahouses, a very popular tourist destination. The village is centred around its busy working harbour, with boats offering trips out to the Farne Islands and charter vessels offering diving and angling. The house is just a stroll away from the sandy beach and a few minutes walk into the centre of the village, with many shops, pubs and restaurants to choose from. The village has good access to the A1 with the town of Berwick-upon-Tweed to the north, with five national supermarkets, health and leisure facilities and a mainline station, with regular services to Edinburgh and London. The nearby village of Belford has amenities including a supermarket, shops and pubs and St Aidan’s is also a walk away from Bamburgh with its historic castle. The north Northumberland Coastline and countryside is a popular destination for those looking for a weekend retreat or rural home because of its value for money and lifestyle on offer. 

General Description


The Strand was built in 2004 and was specifically designed to make the most of the incredible sea views. The house occupies a generous plot set back from its neighbours, with delightful landscaped gardens, ample parking, two garages and a two-bedroomed holiday let. The property also has a small paddock next to the house, which has the potential to develop, subject to planning permission. The front door opens into the foyer, with a further door opening into the hall. There is a conservatory to the rear of the house with access into the garden, a utility room to the front, two double bedrooms served by the family bathroom and the master bedroom with an en-suite. On the first floor there are two generous reception rooms, a sitting room and a dining room and the kitchen-breakfast room, with a balcony offering wonderful sea views. There is a cloakroom and the rear of the house is a sunroom with balcony, affording far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside. 

Strand Cottage

To the front and side of the main house is Strand Cottage, a two bedroomed property with an open-plan kitchen-living-dining room and a shower room/WC. This has been used as a holiday let in the past but could also be used for visiting friends and family or for an elderly relative. To the rear of the cottage is an enclosed patio garden.


The Strand sits on a generous plot extending to approximately 0.45 of an acre. There is a beautiful formal garden to the rear, a courtyard garden to the front, two garages, ample off-street parking and a small paddock to the side of the house, with the potential to develop subject to planning permission.
