    “Nice cottage, spent a comfortable week here.”

    Large enclosed garden with a gate to the burn at the back, dog friendly, super comfortable beds - we slept very well all week. Well equipped kitchen. Not much walking can be done from the door because even though it's in a quiet spot you turn onto a busy road with no paths, but luckily it's a 5 min drive to lovely Bamburgh and the amazing beach there. Many other highlights nearby including Ross Sands, Seahouses Harbour and Dunstansburgh Castle. Housekeeper contacted us on the first night which I ...

    Large enclosed garden with a gate to the burn at the back, dog friendly, super comfortable beds - we slept very well all week. Well equipped kitchen. Not much walking can be done from the door because even though it's in a quiet spot you turn onto a busy road with no paths, but luckily it's a 5 min drive to lovely Bamburgh and the amazing beach there. Many other highlights nearby including Ross Sands, Seahouses Harbour and Dunstansburgh Castle. Housekeeper contacted us on the first night which I thought a nice touch. No major issues although I do think the cottage could do with a little updating in a few places; trims on french doors missing, garden seems quite tired and not as appealing as the pictures, hob extractor only works on 1 switch and no light, Henry hoover with no pipe attachment and dustpan and brush wonky so we couldnt hoover/sweep up dog hairs during our stay which we normally would do for our own comfort. Also I used the washing machine once and it got so hot I couldnt touch it so that may well need replacing! Just small things, which didnt ruin our holiday at all, but need to be taken into consideration for future bookings.

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.
