Description

In the most atmospheric of settings, against a dramatic backdrop of a cliff of Whinstone rock, Seagrass sits within an enclave of privately owned lodges, facing Bamburgh Castle and the sea, just a mile or so away. Contemporary architecture and modern eco-luxury combine in this holiday home to deliver serious wow factors.

Formerly a quarry for the Budle Hall estate, and the source of the stone with which Bamburgh Castle itself was built, the site on which Seagrass is located now bears little resemblance to its hard working past. Still part of the estate, and up until recently, a safe and sheltered area for the estate's ewes to lamb, this enchanting spot is now home to 12 carefully designed eco lodges.

Seagrass sits on the higher level close to two other lodges. Inside, a contemporary mix of bold burnished copper and stately greys set the tone. A double height living area with log burner and vast glazed windows flood the spaces with light and allow guests to take in the coastal views of Bamburgh Castle and The Farne Islands in the distance.

Guests at Seagrass share the privilege (with the other lodges) of private access to a further 20 acres of woodland, picnic areas and the breathtaking clifftop viewing point, from where the panoramic coastal vistas are more than worth the climb!

Reviews

Perfect! 10/10 - everything was first class. Coastal Retreats provided a very professional service with the upmost of customer service and experience. The lodge literally had EVERYTHING we needed and more...The welcome pack was also a lovely touch!

Past Customer,

Tasteful, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Felt at home straight away and couldn't fault the lodge at all. We would love to come back as the location just suited us so well. Thanks for suggesting this to us Coastal Retreats!

Past Customer,

I am now inspired to redecorate my house. Just going to copy everything going on in this cottage. I've photographed every room and seriously going to duplicate. It was such a lovely homely and welcoming place to stay. Loved it.

Past Customer,

Tranquil and peaceful even in the height of summer. A beautiful place to return to in the evenings. The weather was great so we ate on the balcony most evenings, watching the sunsets.

Past Customer,

The location is fantastic. We loved the lodge and its cool interiors. A very very comfortable stay and we have been very impressed with the service from Coastal Retreats from start to finish.

Past Customer,

Seagrass is a fabulous holiday lodge - perfect for a family holiday. The lodge is well-equipped, clean and has amazing views to Bamburgh. We will miss our morning coffee on the decking.

Past Customer,

Seagrass did not disappoint and has everything we needed. Excellent location too! We've seen so much wildlife this week including a stoat, rabbits, hares, butterflies and birds around the lodge.

Past Customer,

Location

Part of the estate belonging to Budle Hall, a grand Georgian house, this crescent-shaped rock bowl was once the estate's quarry, then more recently, a sheltered spot for the farm's ewes in lamb. Now it is home to some striking contemporary architecture. Just half a mile or so from Budle Bay, a world renowned wildlife reserve, and just a couple of miles from Bamburgh, it's a quiet spot but still close to the main attractions of Bamburgh Castle and beach, Holy Island and The Farne Islands.
