    You couldn't ask for a better located holiday cottage .....

    Situated under the Whinstone Crags upon which stands Bamburgh Castle, nestled in the Bamburgh dunes, and just out of the garden you're on the beach in seconds, this single storey cottage just seems too good to be true. But, this house has been a family holiday retreat for over 50 years and now, Coastguard Cottage has been brought into the present day to accommodate up to 8 people and an infant. With 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an underfloor-heated conservatory, the cottage is spacious yet has a cosy feel and provides a great retreat after a day exploring the Northumberland coastline or simply walking along the vast expanse of Bamburgh beach, just metres from the front door. Besides the iconic castle dominating this village, Bamburgh also has a wealth of pubs/restaurants and eateries, as well as cafes, gift shops and general stores. Not to be missed is the local butcher's shop - Carter's - to sample the famous Bamburgh Bangers for breakfast!
    For a family get together, friends' reunion, or a base for groups to follow their interests there's space and comfort for all.

    "Excellent, comfortable and extremely well-equipped accommodation. Holiday was helped along by exceptionally warm weather for September, which ended with a dramatic thunderstorm! Try the Potted Lobster for very good seafood menu, the Castle for traditional pub grub in generous portions, and The Lord Crewe for dog-friendliness! Highlight of the holiday was walking the Pilgrims Way across to Holy Island, barefoot in the sand. We were accompanied by an excellent guide, arranged through "Footsteps Northumberland". Thank you for the K9 pack, bowls, towels and crate."

    Clark and McKay families - Sep 2016

    "As always a fantastic and memorable holiday. Be back next year. This is a wonderful place where we can all relax - all 3 generations - and we have all had a super holiday."

    Camerons and Pattisons - Sep 2016

    "What a fantastic holiday!! Wonderful cottage, brilliant location, well prepared and organised with everything we could need. Added bonus of course was the lovely weather, which allowed us to make full use of the large garden and BBQ. Thanks."

    Dawson and Bintliff families - Aug 2016

    "Our 4th visit to Coastguard Cottage and its has been fabulous as usual. It accommodates 3 generations and a dog with ease. One huge bonus this year was the dolphins - at least 6 or 7 who came into the bay in front of the lighthouse - what a treat! The weather has surpassed our expectations and we have been able to sit outside and play with Willow (the dog). - she loves it. We hope to be back."

    Ardron and Jarvis families - Aug 2016

    "Another excellent and enjoyable stay. We've had a great break and hope to be back next year."

    Simms family - Jul 2016

    "Another enjoyable holiday at Coastguard Cottage. A lovely relaxing break. Had good weather too, which made our holiday even better. Poppy and Maisy loved being back on the beach."

    Williams and Rees families - Jul 2016

    "Enjoyed a wonderful holiday in this beautiful cottage set in idyllic surroundings. There were 3 generations here and we all had a wonderful time. We visited the Farne Islands, Alnwick Castle and Gardens and Lindisfarne - all well worth a visit. This was an especially poignant visit for me as my parents spent a honeymoon week here in 1938 when the cottage was still a coastguard cottage. The coastguard was a family friend - so for me the trip has been particularly nostalgic. Max (age 6) said his favourite things were the beach and Alnwick Castle."

    Andreason family - Jul 2016

    "We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage. The location is truly fantastic and we got to explore the area extensively. Highlights: Walk from Craster to Low Newton Cragside is lovely Holy Island and lunch at Pilgrims Edinburgh was fantastic (although very busy!) Farne Islands - watch out for the Arctic terns. Walk from Bamburgh to Seahouses and back. We hope to return soon."

    Kalavitrinos family from Canada - Jul 2016

    "Having stayed in many different cottages in Bamburgh this location is just about perfect, allowing us to visit the beach as often as we chose. The organisation here is excellent and all is perfectly clean in spite of all the mention of dogs. Highlights: watching the strawberry moon rising behind the castle at midsummer sunset; running on the sand; swimming in the waves and of course the Farnes, Alnwick Garden, walk up to Dunstanburgh, the Castle. Love this place."

    Hoyle family - Jun 2016

    "We have had a fantastic stay at this wonderful cottage - what a find! We had 3 generations stay for a week and the cottage surpassed our expectations. The garden and location to the beach was extremely popular with our 4 year old and border collie! We will definitely be back - hopefully without the rain next time!"

    The Huntrods and Evans families - Jun 2016

    "Wonderful week back in Northumberland to celebrate Mum's 90th! Super visit to Howick Hall - woodland amazing; rediscovered The Ship at Low Newton (happy memories!). Fantastic cottage. Thank you."

    Batin family - Jun 2016

    "Had a lovely laid back, refreshing week, as always! Love the cottage, love Bamburgh. Thank you for the high standard again, we will return!"

    Avinou family - May 2016

    "We have had a wonderful week here - weather has been amazing considering the forecast was for rain! My 2 dogs have loved the beach walks every day. My 81 year old mother has had a wonderful week, having been born in Northumberland and first time back in 46 years. The cottage is in the most amazing position - absolutely perfect."

    Walls family - May 2016

    "Our second visit to this wonderful cottage and beautiful part of the UK. Blessed wth really good weather for the best part of the week - many walks along the local beaches. Walks around Hepburn have lovely moors, crags and views. Cottage is so well equipped and the cleanest I have ever seen. We've had a lovely time and are already booking for next year when we get home. So, thank you very much and hopefully we will be back soon."

    Henna and Chard families - May 2016

    "This is my 4th trip to Bamburgh and, as always, had a wonderful time! Lovely long walks on the best beach in the world. Weather was sunny with blue skies on arrival, followed by hail, sleet and gales! Cottage is so comfortable and well equipped, and very relaxing. My 2-legged minions have been coming to Bamburgh for over 25 years and said without doubt best cottage yet. Hope to come back again for sure."

    Page family - Apr 2016

    "What a wonderful find this lovely cottage is. Just wish our cocker spaniel could have lived to have been here. Had great weather - warm and sunny after a very cold, rainy and sleety start at the weekend. Had lovely long coastal walks. Another highlight was the views from the golf course. We will be back, hopefully with a four-legged friend. Thank you."

    Ewen family - Apr 2016

    "Another enjoyable week in this cosy and comfortable cottage. Sadly the weather let us down this year, so even more grateful for delightful accommodation. Thanks again."

    Fellowes and Livesey families - Apr 2016

    "Many thanks for a lovely stay. New Year at the Lod Crewe Arms, fish and chips in Seahouses, seal spotting, rock pooling.....magical!"

    Winter and Talbot families - Jan 2016

    "We've had a brilliant time in this cosy cottage just a stones throw from the beach. There are a lot of thoughtful extras that have been much appreciated. We've walked the beaches, visited Holy Island, enjoyed the garden and and marvelled at the stars. Thank you ."

    Bill & Elaine Turner & Nell the labrador - Oct 2015

    "A wonderful relaxing holiday the cottage is home from home, all our needs catered for. We all enjoyed the beautiful beach. The dogs were in 7th heaven. Will definately come again. "
