Description

When the sun goes down on a day at Bamburgh Beach House, they’ll be grains of sand in between your toes and a carefree smile on your face. This is seaside holidaying at its best. Just a short walk from Bamburgh beach, this is one of our most popular Retreats for its location, beach hut exterior, coastal chic décor and family friendly nature.

Bamburgh Beach House may appear like a beach hut from the outside, but inside, in true tardis-like fashion, the space takes on grander proportions both in size and in character.

Add in its great location in Bamburgh village and we can ensure that a stay here will feel like a special holiday.

Featured in The Times '50 best cottages, beach houses and rural retreats', it has views of Bamburgh Castle from the front, fantastic timber play equipment in the garden for some off-beach fun, a log burner for snug nights in and a dreamy freestanding bath for some grown-up relaxation.

CANDID COMMENTS

There is only parking for two cars. Guests with additional vehicles can park in the beach car park or on the main road.
Bamburgh Beach House is set back off the main road into Bamburgh. Road noise is not an issue but you need to cross the road to get to the beach.
Mobile reception is difficult at this Retreat and in Bamburgh generally, but there is a landline in the house with a honesty box.
There is a washing machine but no tumble dryer.

TO NOTE

This house is a family owned holiday home and as such is unsuitable for holding large parties. Small gatherings are, of course, welcome but no ‘open house’ please.

Whilst we take great care to represent our properties and their facilities as accurately as possible, the décor, furnishings and facilities shown in images and video tours may occasionally be subject to minor change.

Reviews

The house coped well with our two families and it was great being just a short walk from the beach.

Past Customer,

Superb house, superb location!

Past Customer,

Stayed before and this holiday exceeded the last. Amazing hamper. House homely and well decorated, kids dressing up fab, warm and cosy, nothing needs changing!

Past Customer,

This house was perfect for us. We stayed a couple of years ago and it was great to see the addition of a new kitchen and new play equipment. The location close to Bamburgh is ideal and we will definitely consider this cottage again for next year. Thanks to everyone for helping us have another lovely holiday in Bamburgh and with Coastal Retreats.

Past Customer,

There was only four of us so we didn't use a couple of bedrooms but the house felt cosy and comfortable for us. In fact, it was great in every way. We loved not having to use the car all of the time. The garden was a hit with the children and most evenings we went for a walk along the beach up towards the castle, even going in the sea on one occasion!

Past Customer,

Location

Bamburgh Beach House has an enviable location, within walking distance of the beach and just a few minutes' stroll from the centre of Bamburgh with its castle, museum, places to eat and small shops. Holy Island is north of Bamburgh and The Farne Islands can be accessed from Seahouses harbour, just five minutes south.
