  • "Had such a lovely stay at Turnstone Cottage."

    Beds very comfortable, kitchen so well equipped (even for Christmas turkey...), everything clean. No noise from the road due to very good window insulation. Loved the fireplace and also the friendly owner. Felt comfy and at home. Thank you!

    Always our pleasure. You know where we are. Thankyou Mike Property Owner

  • "This has to be one of the best equiped kitchens I have ever stayed in."

    No dishwasher or clothes dryer. The dishwasher not a problem clothes dryer big problem with young children and wet weather, no decent airer or outside line which made life more difficult as struggled with almost unusable equipment. When a property is billed as dog friendly , I expect that! I also realise that not all guests will travel with covers etc as I do just in case, I dont like signs up everywhere saying no dogs up stairs on stairs etc. It would have been better with a child gate on the bottom of the stairs that could be for children and dogs. I used a broken one to block stairs. The beds where absolutely the most comfortable. I want one! Products supplied for guests beautiful touch as the welcome box and card. I would stay again very good for exploring the beautiful Northumberland coastal area.

  • "This was a wonderful cottage in a stunning location."

    It came with the best welcome hamper we’ve ever received. Would really struggle to find anything negative to say about it, except the mobile signal for us was non-existent but the router allowed Wi-Fi calling which cancelled that complaint out. We only had the wood burner going a couple of times as I couldn’t be bothered lighting it. The smart tv kept us entertained in the evenings and was easy to navigate. All in all, it was a hassle free stay.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this cottage."

    Being February it was a little chilly in the morning downstairs, but once the log burners were fired up it was cosy. Very well kitted out, beds comfortable, an ideal base to explore the coast of Northumberland. Although located directly facing the road, we never heard any road noise as it wasn't the busiest road in the world. Lovely welcome pack waiting for us on arrival, even biscuits for the dogs. Definitely recommend. Note there is only one parking space, and literally no place you could park a 2nd car (not an issue for us as we had one car only) but if you took 2 x cars it would be an issue.

  • "A beautifully situated cottage in Waren Mill with lovely views over Budle Bay."

    The accommodation was very comfortable and warm. Very well equipped kitchen with everything you could possibly need. Instructions available for all appliances. We especially liked and appreciated the welcome basket on arrival with some lovely treats for both us and our 2 dogs. There was also milk ready for us in the fridge and a few toiletries in the bathroom. We had a wonderful stay and will hopefully return

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.
