If you’re new to Northumberland, and are toying with a holiday in this region, then a good place to start is Bamburgh. Previously named in The Times as one of the 30 best places to have a second home, this historic coastal village has all the elements required for a perfect getaway: beach, castle and a good selection of places to eat. You never know, you may find yourselves falling in love with this dramatic slice of Northumberland and end up purchasing your own seaside getaway like some of our previous guests…
Bought and transformed by Coastal Retreats guests who were drawn back to Northumberland time and time again, North Star House has all the best elements of Bamburgh on its doorstep. Situated in a quiet corner of the village, you can enjoy this highly exclusive house for 12 in its own private grounds while just being a short walk away from the shops, restaurants and beach. The iconic Bamburgh Castle is a few metres away and can be seen in all its glory from the rear of the house. A weekend here is a break enjoyed without the car and will certainly leave you longing for more.
Every luxury has been considered at Skyfall. Elegant, contemporary and sophisticated in style, it is perfect for couples with children who do not want to forgo something special just because they have kids. Children are catered for here with the twin room and an enclosed rear lawned garden. At just a short five-minute drive outside Bamburgh village, you can escape the hustle and bustle of the main shopping area while also being near enough to benefit from it. Situated in Bamburgh’s Glororum – a former farm – two-bedroomed Skyfall is part of a collection of converted buildings, which have been tastefully designed to suit the discerning holidaymaker.
A beautiful apartment for couples, Bamburgh Five is situated opposite the iconic Bamburgh Castle in the centre of the village and just a short walk from the beach. Suited to one or two couples holidaying together (children are welcome here, but there are no specific facilities for them other than a toy box and a high chair and cot), it is the kind of place to forget your troubles, leave the office behind and find refuge in its decadence, unparalleled view and fine furnishings.
