  • "We have stayed a few times in the area so knew where we had booked but obviously not been inside the property so were looking forward to being so close to the bay itself."

    Whilst the position of the property was excellent there is clearly a lack of maintenance both inside and outside the surrounding area of the lodge - which is a shame. Cleanliness was lacking somewhat with dirty pans in the cupboard, mould in the bathrooms and generally needing a decent deep clean. Pans needed replacing and cutlery all mismatched and really blunt knives in the block with no sharpener provided so whilst we enjoyed our stay we would not necessarily revisit the specific lodge - however with a little time and effort by the owners this could all be easily rectified.

  • "Excellent accommodation situated metres away from beautiful beach."

    We stayed in Godwit cottage last year and brought the family this year to experience a holiday in Budle Bay. They loved it!

  • "Lovely cosy cabin - great place to unwind."

    Jun 2017

  • "A warm and cosy log cabin on a quiet site."

    A short walk through the dunes to a beautiful white sandy beach. The cabin is well equipped and to a good standard. We had four lovely nights there and felt safe and relaxed.

  • "Grey Heron is an fantastic lodge in the best location ever."

    The lodge is well equipped and was spotlessly clean. The view and proximity to the dunes and Budle Bay beach are what makes Grey Heron the best holiday accommodation we have stayed in. We will definitely be back.

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.
