    “A truly cute little cottage in a breathtaking location, metres from a beautiful beach, the cottage had everything we needed by way of crockery, cutlery etc and the hosts had left a small welcome package with, tea, coffee, milk, sugar, hot chocolate and a bottle of wine.”

    The cottage was clean and comfortable enough but the double bed in master bedroom was very small and mattress wasn't great, so we ended up sleeping separately . The bathroom which is on the ground floor was large with a decent sized bath and plenty of hot water, alas the shower above the bath lacks power.A little toiletries pack would have been a nice touch too. The stair case is incredibly narrow especially the lower steps which twist around so wouldn't be the best to manoeuvre if you had any ...

    The cottage was clean and comfortable enough but the double bed in master bedroom was very small and mattress wasn't great, so we ended up sleeping separately . The bathroom which is on the ground floor was large with a decent sized bath and plenty of hot water, alas the shower above the bath lacks power.A little toiletries pack would have been a nice touch too. The stair case is incredibly narrow especially the lower steps which twist around so wouldn't be the best to manoeuvre if you had any kind of mobility issues. We loved the inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, but we weren't provided with enough fuel to last even one evening, you can BUY more but the welcome guide asks for 24 hours notice.However positives definitely outweigh any negatives and we would definitely return.

About the location

BAMBURGH

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.
