  • "We really enjoyed staying in the property."

    It was in an excellent location.The facilities and decoration was generally of a high order. The only minor issue was the condensation in the bathrooms; the fan was not working in one and we generally had to keep the windows open.

  • "The flat is beautiful with stunning views."

    Key pick up was easy & good to have designated parking, although it is tight with a big car. It was spotlessly clean, so big thank you to the housekeeper. The welcome pack of food & drink were a lovely touch that we appreciated. Although the garden is listed as shared, we wanted to know if there was anywhere outside we could dry wet suits/ beach towels. It was very difficult to do this in the house, couldn't get the dryer to work. The dust pan & brush was old so didn't pick up sand and we couldn't get the hoover to work very well either. There is a very large foot rest which really gets in the way when there are 5 people to sit at the dining table.

  • "Brilliant well appointed apartment the views are amazing with a cricket pitch and castle in your front garden stunning, we had a great 5days holiday Bamburgh beach is superb, Northumberland is certainly among the most scenic areas inthe UK."

    Parking under cover locked gates felt safe at all times there are 8 apartments but at no time did we here any noise from neighbours really peaceful. Would recommend to anyone.

  • "Sandpiper was a lovely apartment, warm, clean and very comfortable."

    The down side was there were two couples sharing and only one key fob that opened the main gates. We repeatedly asked for another fob and were 'fobbed off' saying they only ever gave one key fob per apartment which I know for a fact isn't true. The solution according to Northumbria Coast and Country Cottages was when one couple went out, to put the key ring with the fob in the safe box on the garage wall and then when the other couple went out they retreive the keys, open the gate and then put the keys back in the safe. So, when we arrived back sometimes in the dark, we had to stop the car, open the pedestrian gate, putting the code in which doesnt always work, go to the key safe to get the key that opened the main gate. All this was such a hassle. The letting agent said they would contact the owner but we heard nothing back. I do feel that the maintenance company must have spare fobs but was told they dont. All this has left us feeling that we will not book again through Northumbria Coast and Country Cottages especially as they have either amalgamated or been bought out by Sykes and their service has deteriorated, you can no longer ring the local offices instead you are put through to Sykes. I would add that the second set of keys at the apartment was not for Sandpiper but for an apartment called Meroo so we had to go into Seahouses and get a second set of keys but without the fob for opening the main gates. Such a shame but we wont be booking Sandpiper again.

    The view is quite simply staggering, almost unbelievable. It is quiet & peaceful & ideally located to just walk out & explore. The gated parking is a huge bonus too.

About the location


Seahouses 3 miles; Alnwick 12 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.
