    “Our 3rd visit to this beautiful cottage (4-11 November) However it will be our last, this year we payed £750, the equivalent week in 2024 is priced at £942, a 26% hike I also agree with an earlier posting that the property is in need of a deep clean and freshen up.”

    The front door was jammed, the patio covered in leaves that I swept away from the door.

    Dear Guest Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately we have had to make a disproportionate increase in the cost of out of season winter bookings due to the huge increase in electricity costs. The cleaning points have been passed on to Sykes and we encourage guests to raise any maintenance points with the team at Sykes who will resolve them as soon as possible. Property Owner

About the location

BAMBURGH

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.
