  • "The drainage was blocked, it ruined our stay, so we had to leave early cutting of family holiday short."

  • "A Lovely Cottage with Some Disappointments Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ I recently had the pleasure of staying at 10 Budle Sands Cottage and overall, it was a pleasant experience."

    The cottage itself is charming and has a lot of potential to be a perfect holiday retreat. However, there were a few disappointments that prevented it from being a truly exceptional stay. Let's start with the positives. The cottage itself is lovely, with a cozy and inviting atmosphere. The interior design is tasteful and the furnishings are comfortable. The rooms are well-appointed and provide a comfortable space to relax and unwind. The location is also fantastic, with beautiful views and easy access to nearby attractions. However, there were a few issues that detracted from the overall experience. Firstly, the lack of basic amenities such as toilet rolls and tea towels was quite surprising. These are essentials that one would expect to be provided in a holiday rental, and it was inconvenient to have to purchase them ourselves. Additionally, the inadequate supply of cleaning products made it difficult to maintain cleanliness throughout our stay. The outside grey bin being already half filled with rubbish meant we had to find somewhere to dispose of our rubbish on our way home! Another disappointment was the lack of Christmas decorations. We had booked the cottage during the holiday season with the expectation of a festive atmosphere. I had contacted the booking company to ansk if the cottage was going to be decorated annd was told it would be! Unfortunately, there were no decorations or festive touches, which was a letdown. Despite these shortcomings, I must commend the cottage for its potential. With a little more attention to detail and ensuring that basic amenities are provided, this could be a truly exceptional holiday destination. In conclusion, 10 Budle Sands Cottage has the makings of a wonderful holiday retreat. The cottage itself is lovely and the location is fantastic. However, the lack of basic amenities, inadequate cleaning products, including washing powder for the washing machine and the absence of Christmas decorations were disappointing. With some improvements, this cottage has the potential to be a standout choice for a holiday getaway. Disclaimer: This review is based on my personal experience and opinions may vary.

  • "This house is beautiful to live in."

    Lovely enclosed garden, spacious kitchen/dining area. Aga takes a bit of working out but you enjoy it when you have mastered it. Beds comfortable and bedding perfect for the temperature. Very handy utility room. Towels were fluffy and great quality. Location good for Bamburgh. Lots of public footpaths to walk safely there or the option to take a beautiful stroll along the beach to the castle. There is also a bus stop just over the road The dishwasher sometimes filled with water after using, but it didn’t hinder us and probably is easily fixed. The local residents were so friendly. We had a wonderful stay and perfect for our family ranging from 11 months to late 60s. Extra care is needed on the staircase and a stair gate if children are younger.

  • "Just Wow. The cottage is incredible."

    It's fantastically spacious, beautifully appointed and the additional touches - such as welcome cleaning pack, bottle of wine and biscuits were a lovely touch. The location of the cottage is superb being just a few minutes walk from a beautiful beach. We did have an issue with the dishwasher on the first night so phoned Northumbria Cottages on the Saturday morning and a chap was out fixing it within 2 hours - could not have asked for any more.

  • "Very comfortable stay, thank you."

    Bin in en-suite bathroom hadn’t been emptied before we arrived. Some maintenance issues - outer cover on en-suite bathroom fan missing so rain is getting into the fan causing damp problem on ceiling and wall. Glass shelf in same room was loose - I managed to tighten it up. Two wheels missing from lower dishwasher basket causing a terrible clunk as wheeled in and out - these are readily available on Amazon & just clip on.

  • "Lovely place."

    Great location. The cottage is lovely. Being new to an Aga it takes a bit of getting used to. But easy enough to figure out. The hot oven isn’t hot enough in my opinion. The grass was very long, apart from looking untidy it makes it more difficult for a toddler to wander around. A few shelves in the showers for shower gel etc would be handy. But overall we had a lovely stay and would recommend to friends and family.

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.
