  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    Cottage was well equipped (especially pleased to see some decent sized wine glasses) and really comfortable and cosy. A wood burner would make it perfect although only for aesthetics as the cottage is really warm and some decent kitchen knives would be useful. Otherwise a really positive stay, customer service was great when we locked ourselves out and it was fabulous being so close to the beach and some terrific places to eat.

    The cottage was just right for our holiday. It was dog friendly with having enclosed front and rear gardens ensuring the dogs could go outside safely. The rooms were beautifully decorated in keeping with the coastal theme and were clean and well furnished. I would recommend this cottage and will certainly book it again for future holidays in Northumberland.

The welcome begins as soon as you open the cottage-style front door and step into the delightful open-plan living space which is bursting with charm and character.

An extensive seating area awaits with feature wood panelled ceiling and an ornamental inglenook fireplace and is somewhere you can imagine gathering together to really get into the holiday spirit.

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.
