Thornrigg is a detached house at the end of a quiet lane. While offering a peaceful retreat, it is only five minutes walk from Lesbury, where there is a village shop and post office. Because of its position there is almost no traffic, so it is safe to walk from the front door to footpaths. The riverside path is bird watchers' heaven.
There are more shops, pubs and restaurants in Alnmouth which is five minutes drive or fifteen minutes footpath walk. The fabulous beach has a large car park.
There are regular buses nearby and a station on the main East Coast line half a mile away.
