  • "A truly cute little cottage in a breathtaking location, metres from a beautiful beach, the cottage had everything we needed by way of crockery, cutlery etc and the hosts had left a small welcome package with, tea, coffee, milk, sugar, hot chocolate and a bottle of wine."

    The cottage was clean and comfortable enough but the double bed in master bedroom was very small and mattress wasn't great, so we ended up sleeping separately . The bathroom which is on the ground floor was large with a decent sized bath and plenty of hot water, alas the shower above the bath lacks power.A little toiletries pack would have been a nice touch too. The stair case is incredibly narrow especially the lower steps which twist around so wouldn't be the best to manoeuvre if you had any kind of mobility issues. We loved the inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, but we weren't provided with enough fuel to last even one evening, you can BUY more but the welcome guide asks for 24 hours notice.However positives definitely outweigh any negatives and we would definitely return.

  • "The location is superb."

    However we found the cottage very cramped for space and a little dark. The stairs are not ideal with being so twisty and narrow. The double bed is also very small, which meant we had to sleep in separate rooms. It is also very pet friendly. Not having the bathroom and toilet on same level as the bedrooms is a minus particularly in view of the narrowness of the twisty staircase.

  • "The property was fabulous with everything in it and more for a self catering holiday."

    It was nice and cosy and warm and comfortable. It was perfectly located, only a 2 minute walk to the beach with a fantastic sea view. And awesome sunsets!! It was one of the best holidays we have had. Perfect accomodation, location and so much to see in the area with incredible beaches for sea walks. Cant wait to go back next year!

  • "An excellent hideaway cottage."

    Peace and solitude. Night skies awesome with no light pollution. Good base for visits to attractions such as Holy Island and Bamburgh Castle.

The property

Bamburgh 2.1 miles.

Settled into the Lindisfarne Reserves beside the stunning sandy beaches of Budle Bay, Heather Cottages-Plover is one of 5 beautiful stone cottages, ideal for a family looking for a seaside getaway.

Park off-road, enjoying the coastal views before you make yourself at home in this lovely property, where a sitting/dining area takes the coastal chill away with a woodburning stove, and there is wooden flooring throughout this space, as well as a dining table where you can enjoy a meal together.

The kitchen rests between green walls and makes for a convenient cooking experience, with a selection of home-from-home amenities.

The property offers two homely bedrooms, including a double and a twin, as well as a family bathroom.

Dine alfresco on the communal lawn or at the patio furniture provided and enjoy the fresh sea air.

With a beach so close to the property, a day spent on the sand is a must, and you can try out watersports, wild swimming or just take a walk through the scenery.

Bamburgh is the next town to Budle Bay, where you will find a selection of tasty eateries, a deli where you can stock up on essentials and a fantastic castle overlooking the beautiful countryside.

From here, the historic Holy Island is within easy reach, and you can visit sites such as Lindisfarne Priory, the local castle and a great selection of eateries, beaches and countryside walks.

Make a holiday to remember with the stunning scenery of Heather Cottages-Plover.

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.
