Available to guests from the end of August, it is one of the original Armstrong Cottages, located in one of Bamburgh's most popular spots overlooking the dunes of Bamburgh beach. Sleeping up to 4, in two ensuite bedrooms, Armstrong 8 can be booked with neighbouring Armstrong 7 for chic holidaying for up to 8 guests, and is also situated alongside other family favourite Retreats Bamburgh Beach House and Mr & Mrs Smith's. Its distinctive green-painted timber frontage can be spotted on the road to Bamburgh Castle.
