With excellent views of Bamburgh Castle and easy access to the stunning beach, this Grad II listed cottage is perfect for fantastic walks and bike rides along the spectacular Northumberland coast.

The lovely coastal village of Bamburgh is famous for its castle, once home to the Kings of Northumbria, and which can be seen from the cottage. You can visit the inspiring RNLI Grace Darling Museum or take a trip to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Bamburgh is home to a spectacular sandy beach stretching for three miles. The village offers a host of great shops, tearooms, pubs and restaurants. There are miles of glorious walking and cycling routes, and you can head to Budle Bay, a picturesque bird sanctuary. The village of Seahouses is just over 2 miles south and provides access to the popular boat trips to the Farne Islands where you can see the bird and seal reserves.

On entering this charming single-level Grade II listed building originally constructed in the late 19th century for workmen restoring the castle, you will find yourself in the bright and welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. With comfortable seating, TV, DVD and a lovely open fire, the inviting and cosy lounge is a perfect place to unwind after a wonderful day exploring the beautiful Northumberland coast. You will also find a delightful dining area, and the attractively designed kitchen is fully equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. There’s also an additional breakfast bar with seating for two. Exploring further you will find two comfy bedrooms. There’s a master bedroom with a double bed, and a twin room with two single beds. You will also find a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath and a WC.

Fantastic location. Cottage is quite basic but comfortable and clean and on this basis a little overpriced.

Reviewed by Christine, 8th June 2019

Very good location. Straight across the road to sand dunes and beach. Ideal for our dogs. Dog friendly pubs nearby. Cottage very comfortable and well equipped. Look forward to repeat visit.

This is a perfectly located cottage in Bamburgh, especially if you have a dog. The garden is secure and within 5 minutes you are on the sand dunes and onto the beach facing the Farne Islands. Parking is excellent. Walking distance to essential shops and lots of excellent pubs and restaurants. Really quiet location.

Only a short walk from friendly Bamburgh and just over from the dunes and the beach, this cottage is in the ideal location to enjoy the Northumbrian coast. It's quiet without being isolated, easy to access from the A1, with a bus stopping outside to get to Seahouses. The cottage itself is beautifully maintained, with a double bed and a twin bedroomRead more, immaculately clean and with a great shower/bath with lots of hot water. We had a lovely stay! Hide

This cottage has everything you could possibly want in a self catering cottage. The lounge area has 2 quality 2 seater sofas which are great for a couple to lay out on in front of the real fire, to read a good book, while sipping a drink after a long walk along the perfectly clean sandy beach. The bed is a bit soft but is lovely and comfortable andRead more very cosy with the high tog rated quality quilt. Location wise, there is just the road and the sand dunes between the cottage and the beach - great for dog walks! Bamburgh village centre is about 10 minutes walk away, this is where you will find local shops including the Pantry and an award winning butcher. Seahouses, about a five minute drive provides larger shops and bank. There are many other Northumbria villages/towns to visit including Alnwick (book shop), Craster, Wooler and Berwick Hide
