Description

Built in the late 19th century to accommodate the families of workers renovating nearby Bamburgh Castle, this deceptively spacious Grade II listed cottage is situated on the southern outskirts of the coastal village of Bamburgh, a short walk across the dunes to a magnificent sandy beach. The cottage provides contemporary well designed holiday accommodation with an exceptionally large lawned garden to the rear and is in a quiet location with fields behind. The amenities of the village are within walking distance and 2 miles south is the bustling fishing port of Seahouses from where boat trips to the Farne Islands are available. Budle Bay, 1 mile north, is home to a wide variety of native and migratory wading birds. The many historic castles which are a feature of this part of Northumberland are all within easy reach by car. Wind surfing, sailing, horse riding and fishing can be enjoyed locally and the area has several splendid golf courses.

Reviews

Had a great stay, very nice cottage well suited to toddlers and dogs. Very spacious and comfortable especially the beds. Had a very nice week away, the weather was even kind to us! Would love to come back again.

Previous Customer,

Thank you for another wonderful stay! the cottage has everything you could need and has a real cosy feel to it. We've loved being across the road from the beach perfect for long dog walks. We've explored Rothbury, Simonside and Low Newton. Beadnell is stunning and brilliant for a paddle! Lovely fish and chips from Neptunes & Pinnacles ! (Seahouses). Can't wait to be back again at Christmas. Thanks again.

Previous Customer,

Thank you for such a lovely Armstrong Cottage. The cottage is gorgeous and very spacious (pictures do not do it justice!) with large, enclosed lawned area which Bella, the golden retriever loved. We have especially enjoyed the walk to the beach over the dunes. Weather mixed but last couple of days have been glorious with sun in the garden from early morning until late evening.
