Why stay here ...

Situated only a stones throw from the golden sandy beach of Newton by the Sea on Northumberland's picturesque coastline, Link House Farm, is the perfect seaside base from which to explore this wonderfully varied county. The beach is wide and gently sloping making it ideal for the whole family to kick off their shoes and enjoy a paddle in the clean, blue waters.

Link House Farm is a truly special place, which is why many of our guests return year after year.

Northumberland is England's most northern county and one of its least populated. Sharing a northern boundary with the Scottish Borders, this was a region which was not always as peaceful as it is today. Evidence of this once bloody past is all around us in the shape of multitudes of castles and fortified houses, many of which are open to the public.

Link House Farm is centrally located to make visiting these fascinating places a simple matter. Within an easy half-hour car journey there are castles at Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Warkworth, Lindisfarne and Alnwick (made famous recently as one of the main locations of the Harry Potter movies).

Other historic places of interest include Cragside House at Rothbury (approximately 45 minutes) which was the first house in the world to be lit by electricity, Lindisfarne Priory (approximately 30 minutes) the birthplace of the Lindisfarne Gospels and the site the Viking raiders landed and not forgetting the World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall (approximately 1.5 hours) which was built to keep the Barbarians out of the rest of the Roman Empire.

For those with sporty inclinations, Northumberland has much to offer. Being situated on the seaside, for those who aren't afraid of getting wet there is much to entertain on out very doorstep! Surfing & kite surfing, kayaking and windsurfing, snorkeling and skuba diving to name but a few. There are a multitude of centres and tuition available if required - please check out our Links section for more information or don't hesitate to contact us.

For the golfers, there are a good selection of courses in the immediate area including Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Seahouses. Please check availability and open days on the clubs websites.

Walkers and cyclists have the opportunity to explore a huge variety of trails and landscapes. From spectacular cliff-top walks overlooking the north sea to strolls in the Northumberland National Park and the wide open skies of the Cheviot Hills where wildlife such as otters, black grouse, peregrine falcons and curlew can often be spotted.

Northumberland boasts a myriad of villages and market towns each with their own unique flavour and character such as Craster, home to the famous kipper and Berwick upon Tweed with it's connections to the artist L S Lowry, magnificent architecture and Elizabethan town walls, it is well worth a trip.

Link House Farm is also located almost in equal distance between the bustling cities of Newcastle upon Tyne and Edinburgh giving ample opportunities for the serious shopper, art lover or culture vulture!

What a find!

Link House Farm
On this site now and it's wonderful. It's at the back of a farm which has lots of holiday cottages with play areas but it's far enough past them to be so peaceful and spacious. You can hear the waves from the sea across the sand dunes. There is an electric point and light on each pitch and water, loo and bins are close by. Views across meadows to hills and the dunes are lovely but the location is the best thing. A short walk to the most fantastic beach and a short drive to so many beautiful places including Bamburgh Castle, Alnwick and Cragside National Trust House. Good roads all the way from the A1 except the last few hundred metres which is single lane but passing places but it's a dead end road so only cars from the small car park and other guests at the farm would be coming the other way most likely. To date with all our coming and goings we've met on other cars.

Great location

Link House Farm
Basic site but brilliant location. Less than 5 minutes walk from the beach and 5 mins walk up the lane to the local gastro pub. Site really peaceful with lots of animals and wildlife surrounding. Great walks or cycle rides from the site. We stayed the week and wished we could have stayed longer.

Little Gem

Link House Farm
This place is a fabulous find! The motorhome / caravan compound is relatively small - just 4 or 5 pitches, but beautifully laid out and spaciously laid out, all hardstanding with grass verges in between. But the best thing is the wonderful view that greets you across fields with horses and cows to the sand dunes of Beadnell Bay. This is a cracking, wide sweeping beach - possibly one of the best on the Northumbria coast - and it's just a short walk away. The access is a little narrow and twisty down a county lane but our TAG managed it all no problem and be prepared to be greeted with a true menagerie of game and fowl - including three splendid peacocks - all wandering around the farm and the track that winds around various cottage apartments and farm sheds before reaching the site for motorhomes and caravans. Loved the location and to top it all there's a cracking gastro pub that we can vouch serves wonderful fish and chips, including takeaways, that's just a short and very pleasant amble up the road. We couldn't find a reception point on arrival but soon managed to find the owner who was busy turning round a large number of apartments for coming guests, but was friendly and welcoming. There doesn't seem to be an ability to book a pitch as such - it's just first come first served, so just rock up and grab your space, you wont be disappointed!

What a find!

Link House Farm
We just stayed for 12 nights at Link House Farm CL. The perfect location to base yourself to explore the coastal region of Northumberland. Five minutes' walk down to the dunes and Beadnell Bay beach. Ten minute walk to High Newton and the Joiners Arms (table booking essential). The site was level and had all the basic amenities you need. The owners were friendly and helpful, and the surroundings peaceful with big skies and superb sunsets. Also cattle and racehorses to keep you company in the neighbouring fields. Take a walk to Beadnell along the beach (at low tide) and see the Arctic Tern nest site along the way. Visit the Salt Water Cafe in Beadnell (again, worth booking), for a fantastic tapas style meal. Then walk back along the sand dune coastal path. Another lovely walk we discovered is from Craster, inland to Howick Hall and Gardens, then back through the wooded grounds (arboretum) and then on the coast path back to Craster. Im sure we will be back again one day. Our first visit to Northumberland. There is so much to see and so many places to visit and explore. We thoroughly recommend this site. A guide book we'd also recommend is 'Slow Travel, Northumberland' by Gemma Hall. Its full of fascinating facts about the county and very helpful when you're looking for a good place to eat!

Good little CL.

Link House Farm
Good basic amenities. Easy access to site. Pitches a bit smaller than we’re used to. We appreciated the gift of eggs from the many hens that run around along with ducks and Guinea Fowl within the area. Beautiful stunning beaches all about. Nice be so close to one of these just over the dunes. Visited many castles and Holy Island. A boat trip to the Farne Islands to sea the birds, including Puffins was absolutely brilliant by Billy Shiels boats from Seahouses. Alnwick is a quaint little town but great castle and do visit Barter Books in the town. Cragside a must to do. Alnmouth, lovely beach and little village. Scott’s of Almouth for icecream especially double ginger 😋😋. Also near Warkworth Castle is Amble. Nice beach and stunning waves as the tide comes in. Kippers if you like them from nearby Craster and we also had an interesting historical tour of Berwick on Tweed by Derek. Meet outside the library at 11am. For a couple of hours entertainment. Great first visit to Northumberland.
