Description

This first floor apartment offers extremely pleasant accommodation close to the centre of Bamburgh. Situated above a small bistro, it has recently been refurnished and equipped to an excellent standard, with distant views of Holy Island, and provides a comfortable holiday base in this highly sought after location. Bamburgh has a splendid castle situated on a rocky outcrop overlooking the village and the sea. It was restored in the late 19th century by Lord Armstrong and is still the home of his descendants. Bamburgh was also the home of the Victorian heroine Grace Darling and there is a museum nearby dedicated to her memory. Seahouses is 3 miles, from here there are daily boat trips to the Farne Islands to view the sea birds and grey seal colonies.
