  • "Hi I would like to speak to someone in regard to our stay at the Granary please?"

    I have left two messages but heard nothing back. We left a day early as we could not settle due to the invasion of privacy and unclean downstairs. Please contact me asap. I have been using Northumbria Cottages for over 8 years and stayed in this property before but it was a very different experience this time. I would like to explain my disappointment in detail if someone can contact me please? Kind regards Suzanne Adgar

    Suzanne. Please can you explain in more detail about your disappointment. Really sorry to read that you did not have a happy stay at The Granary. Have you had the chance to discuss this with Sykes cottages? Best Regards Jeremy ( owner) Property Owner

  • "A lovely comfy house with plenty of space for a family of 5 and 2 dogs."

    In a great location for exploring and a short walk down to the nature reserve and round to the beech. The house had everything we needed and more. Thankyou

  • "Myself and 6 friends had the most wonderful weekend at Bundle Granary."

    It's the perfect size for a group of 7 with lots of space in the living and kitchen/dining room. It's very cosy even on cold days. The building itself has lots of character and is very close to the beach. Just a few things to be aware of, you need to bring your own toilet roll and toiletries including soap for some of the bathrooms. We would have preferred if these were provided. Also the mugs appeared to have been soaked in bleach and not rinsed so we had to re wash everything we drank out of. These are, however, minor practical points and we would absolutely recommend staying at the house and hope to come back in the future.

    Ruth, Thanks for your valuable feedback and all of these comments have now been actioned. We have also replaced all of the towels with much larger cozy ones, especially useful in winter. Regards Jeremy Property Owner

  • "Lovely property in a great location, very clean and comfortable kitchen excellently equipped and we all enjoyed our stay in Budle Bay."

    But we were surprised to discover there were no rubbish bags no bags for laundry no toilet rolls and I found the towels though serviceable were smaller than I expected in such a property.

    John, Sorry to read you review about the standard of the cleaning and amenities. I have actioned with Sykes properties and hope that it did not spoil your holiday. Property Owner

  • "We loved our stay."

    Thank you so much. The only constructive feedback is it would have been nice to have a hairdryer. Seemed to have everything else! The bed in the puffin bedroom was very creaky and could do with an oil or something.

  • "We found the property itself excellent and very comfortable."

    Overall well equipped but with one or two omissions ie no dustpan and brush and no mop and bucket for cleaning. The mattress protection cover was found to be stained when I stripped the bed there were also quite a few cobwebs down the wall in the lounge area and the cupboard under the sink had not been wiped out and was damp but we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hopefully will come back again.

    Stuart Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I have actioned all of your comments with Sykes properties and these will be rectified as this is not acceptable. I am baffled as to what has happened to the mop and dustpan but all have now been replaced. I hope that you are able to return and you see a marked change to the cleaning standard. Property Owner

    It is beautifully decorated and presented property that has obviously had a lot of thought put into it. It is spacious and we had plenty of room to accommodate 4 adults, three children and a dog!

  • "This is a lovely spacious holiday house, perfect for a large crowd, with everything we needed to have a wonderful week reunited with our extended family."

    The location is perfect for walking from the door and driving a bit further to explore pretty local towns and beaches. The outside and inside spaces are just great for being together in.

    Instantly felt at home and the property had everything you need. It was clean, cosy and comfortable.

  • "A lovely property with plenty of room."

    Everything you require in a home is supplied. Just a little out of the way for shopping if you are going to self cater. Nearest large store is the Co-op in Seahouses otherwise you have to go to Alnwick. Could not have asked for a better property, enjoyed by all the family.

  • "This was one of the best holidays - so much to see and do up there and having dogs made welcome was wonderful."

    Easy walk to a fabulous coast and so many other walks and places to visit. It truly is a magnificent county. The Granary was great for 8 people and everything was there that we needed. Also spotlessly clean. Will definitely be back.

Settled into the picturesque countryside of Budle, near Bamburgh, Northumberland, Budle Granary is an idyllic base for a family or group of adults looking to explore the history and heritage of the local area.

Park off-road and be welcomed by the beautiful stone exterior of this property, where a footpath winds through the garden, a great spot for alfresco dining with table and chairs and a backdrop of climbing plants, to meet the arched front door.

A spacious sitting area with seas of natural light will warm your feet beside a woodburning stove in the colder months and in the warmer months, open the double doors and let the fresh summer air in, and you will simply love curling up here with a good book after a long day of exploring, beneath the historic roofbeams.

Within a short walk of the property you will find the beautiful Budle Bay, an expanse of sand and ocean views where you can take picnic and enjoy the fresh air or even try out watersports and wild swimming.

If you are in need of a hot meal, head over to the next town of Bamburgh, where there are a selection of eateries, as well as a deli selling local produce.

Another sandy beach awaits your exploration and don’t miss a visit to the impressive Bamburgh Castle and its amazing views, or you can head over to Holy Island with the well-known Lindisfarne priory and castle.

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.
