Bamburgh is also home to the RNLI Grace Darling Museum and St Aidan’s Church and offers a host of pubs, restaurants and boutique shops. You can follow the spectacular coastal path to picturesque villages including Seahouses, Craster and Beadnell, or take boat trips out the beautiful Farne Islands or the famous Holy Island of Lindisfarne.

On entering this spacious and attractive holiday property, which retains many original features including exposed beams and stonework, you will find yourself in the light, welcoming and beautifully furnished lounge.

The garden is extensive, perfect for children to run around in or for you to sit back and take in the views of the picture-perfect countryside.

Obviously once a lovely cottage but in need of some maintenance. 4 dishwasher tablets and no cleaning products for a week's holiday - pennypinching. Lovely location but disappointing. Have had several holidays with your company always excellent. This needs work.

Overall The Old Byre was a nice place to stay, clean, comfortable & had what we needed. The location was ideal for the coast & attractions in the area. The property does have other properties immediately around it so not ideal if you want to be secluded but it is quiet.

We love this cottage and have been visiting here for a number of years. A good location with easy access around the area. The cottage is looking a little tired but a small investment will bring it back up to its original standard from a few years ago.

We had a great time. The cottage was spacious, well equipped and in a great location. We had 3 generations staying together and it was perfect for all with some particularly good toys to entertain the children. We would definitely stay again.

The Old Byre is in a great location. Quiet. Beautifully kept. Garden pleasant and even the lawn was freshly cut prior to our arrival. The Cottage was all spic and span when we arrived. Smelt fresh and clean. Kitchen very clean and cooker all lined with foil ready for use (although we didn't actually use it on this occasion )

The Old Byre is a lovely, well-equipped cottage which is well situated for exploring the area and great for the wonderful beach at Bamburgh. We loved the gardens and cream tea at Howick Hall, fabulous food at the Apple Inn at Lucker, exploring Cragside and the castle and gardens at Alnwick.
