Description

Settle down on the generous glazed balcony at the rear of this holiday home and trace the changing Northumberland sky as it descends to meet the rolling Cheviot Hills on the western horizon. Step out of the front door, and that same sky leads the eye down to the sea and the silhouette of Bamburgh's majestic castle...Cue the name, Skyfall. And whilst this cottage may not be quite on the same scale as the film of the same name, it certainly delivers on drama in terms of the vast Northumberland skies in this spectacular coast meets countryside location.

Skyfall is a sophisticated two-bedroom house near Bamburgh where you are never too far away from some overhead drama. The wide glass balcony offers the best panoramic views of Northumberland’s countryside where the sky appears to roll on and on - also a good spot to catch a few rays or watch the sun go down. From the front of the house, you’ll be greeted by Bamburgh Castle in the near distance and the glint of coastal waters. Aside from the view, Skyfall offers an interior design mix of pastel and coastal colours, clean lines and contemporary living. The large open plan living area is on the first floor to maximize those great views, and off the downstairs bedrooms, there is access to the private lawned garden.

Reviews

This was a long journey for us to make (about 6 hours) and we hadn't been to this area before. My husband's comments on the way was "this had better be worth it". It was.

Past Customer,

10/10. This area is so beautiful. Skyfall is gorgeous and so relaxing. There are lovely places to eat and visit. It is never that busy even when its busy!

Past Customer,

First class experience all round. CR are easy to book and deal with, very responsive and professional. Our accommodation was outstanding, very clean, high spec features, spacious and exceptionally well equipped. Bamburgh is a fabulous place with loads to do with the kids.

Past Customer,

Excellent in every way. Spotlessly clean, beautiful open views, quiet rural location, everything worked and we felt very much at home straight away. Love the name too.

Past Customer,

We absolutely loved the house, and Bamburgh, and had a really lovely holiday. We'd definitely like to book with you again and were so impressed by everything Coastal Retreats had to offer - you made it very easy to have fun.

Past Customer,

Excellent location for us with our young children and we all loved the upside down living.

Past Customer,

Great to have both coastal and countryside views from the same property!

Past Customer,

Location

Just a mile outside of the very popular and picturesque village of Bamburgh with views from the front of Skyfall to Bamburgh Castle and the sea. This cottage is part of a beautiful development of former farm buildings, at Glororum - home also to our Bamburgh Coach House Retreat (sleeps 5).
For further information on the area, see our Bamburgh section.
