The Signal Box is our gorgeous little studio; a quiet getaway in the Northumbrian countryside but within 10 minutes' drive of the coastal resort of Beadnell. It's situated in the village of Ellingham, has a log burner, south facing balcony overlooking fields and a private enclosed garden. It's fully equipped for self-catering and is within a minute's walk of a great pub if you don't fancy cooking. Its name is our little touch of whimsy because we immediately thought of a signal box when we first saw it with its exterior wooden panelling. The studio is accessed via an external staircase onto a south facing balcony complete with patio furniture. Large patio doors open into the open-plan living space, furnished with log burner, sofa seating for two, TV and DVD player, dining table and chairs...The Signal Box is our gorgeous little studio; a quiet getaway in the Northumbrian countryside but within 10 minutes' drive of the coastal resort of Beadnell.
