  • "We first visited Castle View a few years ago and what a stunning transformation!"

    Gorgeous cottage in a great location, compact and well designed. Our week here was sunny but very cold and the cottage was so warm and cosy with all the facilities we needed. Hopefully we’ll be back again soon ❤️

  • "We had a lovely stay at Castle View."

    Everything was lovely and clean and fully equipped. The layout was nicely thought out and lovely to sit and look at Bamburgh Castle at meal times. Great for Hal the dog and great position to head to the beach. We parked near the green which wasn’t a problem for us as we could park the car opposite the property to pack and unpack. Loved the decor, v relaxing colour scheme. Beds were comfy. All in all a super compact and comfortable cottage. Thanks for the welcome box.

  • "Lovely cottage in a fantastic location for access to the village/beach as well as other nearby locations."

    The whole family had a wonderful break over Christmas. Parking was a bit tricky but a minor issue

  • "The property was clean tidy and well maintained."

    The view of the castle was spot on and the access from the property at the rear to the village was ideal and the welcome pack was appreciated The only criticism was that the gate into the rear of the property should be on the other side of the door and the parking should be incorporated where the gravel is located immediately in front of the property as although there is a space opposite this is restricted by the user of the space in front and would be a nightmare in the summer months

  • "Very comfortable and cosy cottage in a good location for local amenities."

    As a result of recent renovations Castle View certainly lives up to its name. The welcome pack of wine and biscuits was much appreciated.

  • "Lovely bungalow just outside the centre of Bamburgh about 5 mins walk to the centre of the village with its pubs, shops and restaurants and 10 minutes to the castle."

    Comfortable, cosy, and well equipped, the lounge is spacious and has stunning views across fields to the castle itself. That it has a designated on-street parking space is a bonus as parking in Bamburgh is at a premium. It's a bit tight and you have to reverse into it, but once you've got the knack it isn't a problem. Highly recommended and we plan to return.

  • "Lovely comfortable property, very modern and well equipped."

    The location is perfect, with views over the castle and farmland. 3 minute walk and you’re in the pub, perfect! Lovely welcome when we got there with a bottle of wine in the fridge and some snacks which is always a nice touch. Plenty of storage for self caterers, big fridge with freezer, plenty of room to hang clothes, washer/dryer, iron/ ironing board, airer, got everything, fully loaded as some might say! We were very impressed. Now for the negatives which I don’t like doing because we had such a lovely visit but I feel other potential visitors might wish to know about. Firstly, there is a parking space but it’s not the easiest of spaces to park in, if you are not confident with parallel parking you may find it a bit tricky, unfortunately the chap who lives at number 18 who’s parking spot is in front feels inclined only to leave you the minimum amount of room, (very neighbourly of him). Another issue we found was that the gate is the wrong side of the back door. It would have been nice to leave the door open without fear of the dogs escaping. Another issue which was rather unpleasant but no fault of the home owners was when we arrived, like most people we open the windows to let fresh air in to the property unpacked then sat outside for a bit with a glass of wine, when we went back inside, the property was full of flies, to the extent that we had to drive into town just to buy some fly spray. We understand that this is no fault of the owners and the property is adjacent to fields with cattle in them. However to all future holidaymakers I would strongly suggest not opening the windows in the second bedroom! All being said we had a great time and would definitely stay at the property again and recommend it to others. I would like to have given it 4 and a half stars but there is no option.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location."

    Can’t fault it. The only minor problem we had was that our 2 Labradors could easily escape the yard so couldn’t go out there without a lead on. Would definitely rebook.

About the location

BAMBURGH

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.
