  • "4 years since last visit so a few changes/upgrades."

    Love this cottage, especially it’s location and hope to return again. A couple of things re maintenance Assume bulb gone in twin bedroom lamp, had quick look for spare but couldn’t find one. Double bedroom door from lounge doesn’t shut properly - guessing latch needs a tweak Lastly but most important is the lift up cupboard in the kitchen with mugs in also doesn’t stay up properly- it just missed my head yesterday but it caught my friend on the arm the day we arrived and really bruised her.

  • "Another holiday at Armstrong cottages."

    Criticisms battery for the torch,garden a bit overgrown and the latch keeps opening on the back gate....minor faults easily rectifiable. Positives's what we expect and enjoy. Parking space front and back to unload. Complimentary cookies,coffee and tea. View of Bamburgh Castle,just across the road from the beach. Seahouses is 10 minutes away by car,Bamburgh town a short walk away. Fantastic Bamburgh beach for our Well-being and our 2 labs love it. Three lovely bedrooms,a new shower facility,spacious kitchen,spacious living room with two settees,2 bathrooms/toilets/bidets and a dishwasher. Lovely garden for the dogs to run around in and for us to sit in and enjoy the sun. Hoover to get dog hairs up,usual cooking amenities and a lovely place to return to and relax. Comfy bedrooms to sleep in,heated radiators to dry things on. We will continue to return to Bamburgh as long as it is affordable. We feel rested and Northumberland is a beautiful place to visit. The weather was a bonus this year and we love driving through the countryside. We always feel welcome here. Thank you

  • "This is the 3rd holiday at Armstrong cottages and another winner!"

    Love the location, the simplicity of the cottage, the very comfy beds and big bath, lots of hot water, all the mod cons in the kitchen. Thank you to the owners of the cottage for another lovely holiday, and thank you Bamburgh/Northumberland for being such a wonderful place to stay!

    I am so happy you have enjoyed our family home, we love Bamburgh. I do hope you will come back one day, thank you for your wonderful feedback. Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage, and extremely well appointed."

    Good features in the kitchen include lots of pans, good quality kitchen knives, a knife sharpener, and good quality appliances throughout. There was a welcome pack for cleaning products, and ignore the standard advice to bring oven gloves because we found 2 sets. Beds very comfortable. The bathrooms were surprising because they'd been updated since the photos were taken (as of June 23), and they're just as you would like them now: modern, stylish and highly functional. Minor negatives: The listing was clear that dogs are allowed, but there were dog hairs under the dining chair feet and under the sofas. I'm allergic to dogs, and I had a mild reaction while staying, but overall the house was very clean and it was easy to throw open the doors and windows to clear the air. Sarah, who manages the cottage, was very helpful and reassuring when we had a toddler-based incident needing some cleaning products and replacement bedding. We felt well-looked-after. Overall this felt like a home from home, which I suppose is based on it having been someone's home in the past. Highly recommended.

    So glad you enjoyed our family home, Bamburgh is a beautiful village. I am sorry for the dog hair, will do better next time. Property Owner

  • "We only had one problem, with a leaking kettle, which the caretaker (I think her name is Sandra) sorted out very quickly."

    We may have overlooked it in the property information folder, but were unable to find out which day the recycling etc was collected.

    Thank you for your feedback, glad the kettle was sorted out. Will look at information for recycling. I hope you enjoyed your holiday. Property Owner

  • "3 areas that need addressing."

    The key safe that holds the house key is awful to get in. So much so that we took nearly 10 minutes to get in it to retrieve the key on one day. I don’t know if it just needs oil or safe needs replacing. It would be great to have a couple of ‘pint’ glasses. Lastly something that didn’t affect our stay but in the wind several slate tiles have become dislodged.

    Thank you for your feedback, we will address all issues asap. I hope you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    A little tardis of a place, that looks small from the outside but is very spacious inside. The garden at the back was an added bonus and the proximity to the beach is fantastic. The cottage is really well equipped and was super clean

The property

Settled into the beautiful wooden-panelled Armstrong Cottages estate, built by Lord Armstrong for workers who were renovating Bamburgh Castle, Armstrong Cottage No2 is an ideal base for a family looking to explore the wonders of Bamburgh and the Northumberland coast.

Park off-road and make yourself at home in a cheerful sitting/dining area where a stone fireplace houses a woodburning stove and adds a sense of history to this homely space.

The kitchen houses all of the home-from-home amenities needed to cook up a storm, so you can enjoy dinner with a view across the garden or you can dine alfresco in the enclosed garden at the sitting area provided as your four-legged family members relax on the grass.

This charming cottage offers three bedrooms, including master with king size bed and a handy en-suite and two twin bedrooms, ideal for children, as well as a family bathroom where you can enjoy a soak amongst the bubbles in the roll top bath.

Bamburgh is a fantastic seaside town where you don’t have to travel far to enjoy a hot meal at one of the local eateries, and there is also the option of trying out local produce at the food deli and emporium.

After a heart-warming lunch, head over to the magnificent Bamburgh Castle and enjoy its stunning sea and countryside views, before heading over to the beach to enjoy the sandy shore and salty air.

More countryside walks are available along the coastline and sand dunes, and the town also has its own RNLI museum.

Further from the property you will find more seaside walks and scenery at Beadnell and Seahouses, or there is the option to visit the well-known Holy Island with its fantastic Lindisfarne Priory, castle, museums and shops.

Fall in love with the coast of Northumberland with a stay at Armstrong Cottage No2.

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.
