  • "We had a lovely few days in the cottage which is bright, clean and very well equipped."

  • "Beautiful home really comfortable."

    Clean and in good distance to all amenities. Loved our stay. The only thing I would suggest is to have a folder with instructions on how to use the hob and heating I couldn't find anything in your box and I use a gas hob so not familiar with electric. This was my only struggle.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay! Clare Property Owner

  • "We loved this cottage, one of the nicest we have ever stayed in."

    The cottage was lovely and clean plus the location is excellent. The downsides to the cottage is the settees are very uncomfortable. The showers need somekind of soap and shampoo holder (not everyone is able to bend down all the time), no baking trays for the kitchen and you really need to put a mind your head sign on the stairs (my husband is 6ft 3 and banged his head and hurt himself). Sorry to moan on because we really did love the cottage but hoping these little things help you and others.

    thanks for your feedback, glad you enjoyed your stay! Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay in this cottage, very well located in Bamburgh."

    There is everything you need and we found the property to be very clean. Probably best described as functional as the sofas were a little uncomfortable however both bedrooms were well appointed with nice comfortable beds with good quality bedding. Good shower rooms although there was a leak beneath the sink in the en-suite. There is a log burner in the living room but no logs provided. That said other extras such as coffee, tea, milk were provided as well as a bottle of wine on arrival which was appreciated. Good sized garden areas - great for dogs although note they are not allowed upstairs. All in all this was a good stay, thank you.

    glad you enjoyed your holiday. Logs are easily available at the coop in seahouses should you ever return! Clare Property Owner

    Had a few problems but sorted.I don t think the sofas have been replaced i was really disappointed the sofas have not been replaced, they were extremely uncomfortable and quite small. With the cold nights and long winter nights i would have liked to relax on a nice sofa

    Hello both sofas were replaced when the house was refurbished. I'm sorry they weren't to your taste! Clare Property Owner

    Refuse collection was on Wednesday and there was not a replacement liner to use. Would also be good to have hooks behind the bedroom doors to hang such as dressing gowns.

    It’s well equipped in every way. We expected steep stairs to the bedrooms, it being a cottage, but they were very easily climbed by us “older” people. The cottage is very well situated, just a few minutes walk from the village and its amenities. Would recommend it every time.

  • "The place has been recently refurbished to a high standard."

    As an electrician, I’m quite critical and have noted some very minor items. 2 x Toilet roll holders need refixing, main bathroom toilet needs refixiing. (Probably wants a spacer on the wall) Both are very simple jobs and did not affect our stay what so ever. Outside the property needs a little work also. A gardener is needed here. Grass cutting before each stay in the summer is a must! As it’s dog friendly, poo is difficult to see in long grass. Front gate needed a screw in the catch, not a tyrap round it. ( I put a screw in) Overgrown roses prevented us from entering safely ( I cut them back a little) generally, garden needs attention all over, particularly around path and bins area. Gate at front to left hand side garden needs repairing. There is a rotary line stood up the wall, but after a furtle in the grass, I think the hole has been blocked up? IE. A washing line needed. I don’t like 7 nights in the same sheets anywhere. Freezer top draw front is broken and falls off. I applied some sticks like …. and it’s now fixed. May fall off again? As I said, I’m a tradesman and can be quite critical, but after the cost and effort of the refurbishment, why not address these minor points and make it spot on. Location is amazing too. Shops, restaurants and pubs around the corner, castle and beach 5 min stroll away. Perfect! Ps. Bed/pillows not to our liking, but that’s personal choice. The linen had had its day, Seemed worn out, spotlessly clean, but needs replacing. I like crisp cotton linen at home and on my hols please. Would I stay here again. Of course I would. Great place. Hope this is helpful and not just someone moaning fir the sake of it.

    The bed and pillows were super comfy in the main bedroom. The only downfall is the 2 little couches are not really comfy to sit and watch TV, we ended up watching TV in bed. With the world cup on we watched more then normal TV. I would stay here again in a heartbeat as the location is great. Also the front and back yard being fenced in was great for our two dogs.

    We have booked again for next year. Just a couple of things could be looked at. The main one is the TV. Being older people we can't hear the TV very well as it won't turn up. Just a little more sound would be really great. Also the shower needs repair, we did ring and told the housekeeper about it, so hopefully it will be mended for next year. Apart from that we love the cottage and look forward to going for our 5th, I think it is, visit.

  • "We would never have booked this property if we knew dogs weren't allowed upstairs."

    Only got told this a week before we went. Spent first two nights, broken sleep, going down to our dogs to resettle them. This needs to be clear before booking! Radiator in one bedroom not working, no lamp in that bedroom, Roberts radio didn't work. Window in other bedroom dangerous as low windowsill and no safety catch. Sofas only good enough for students. Fire extinguishers had no up to date label that they had been serviced. We were not issued with any guidance on what to do in case of a fire. Vacumn cleaner bag was rock hard with compacted dirt inside - we managed to change it. Putting a bottle of wine in the fridge and a packet of biscuits does not compensate. However beds were comfortable and the location good for the beach.

    We're sorry you didn't think it was clear before booking that dogs are not allowed upstairs. We'll have a look at the other points you've made. The house has two exits, front and back as well as patio doors. In case of fire any of these exits can be used. Thanks for the feedback. Clare and Richard Property Owner

About the location


Seahouses 3.5 miles; Beadnell 5.1 miles; Alnwick 16.9 miles.

The village’s sweeping sandy beaches and dramatic fortress - Bamburgh Castle - make Bamburgh one of Northumberland’s major visitor attractions. The castle can be seen for miles and dominates this part of the county’s coastline. Today it remains home to the family of the great Victorian industrialist Lord Armstrong, and is open to the public on a daily basis. Although overshadowed by the great castle, Bamburgh village is picturesque with neat grey stone cottages facing a manicured village green. There are excellent pubs, hotels with restaurants and a small selection of village shops. There are golf courses in Bamburgh and nearby Seahouses, and within easy reach are more wide sandy beaches, lovely fishing villages, stunning castles and coastal islands to explore along the dramatic Heritage Coast. There are numerous other attractions also a short drive away, including the famous Alnwick Castle and Gardens and the historic walled border town, Berwick-upon-Tweed. A superb base for exploring Northumberland.
