Budle Sands, near Bamburgh
Coral Cottage is part of a group of a converted Grade II Listed barns at Budle Sands, in a beautiful location at Budle Bay, just a couple of miles north of Bamburgh. The cottage has a sheltered garden with distant sea views over the bay from the garden, through tall trees towards Lindisfarne and Holy Island.
Budle Bay is a haven for sea birds of many types. The tidal coastline and saltmarshes of the bay provide an abundant food supply for the birds, some of which travel thousands of miles to breed before departing to their winter homes. The ancient Christian stronghold of Holy Island is a short drive away. It is home to the Lindisfarne Gospels and can be reached at low tide by the causeway. Bamburgh Castle, beach and village are about 1.5 miles to the south by road or a little further by a coastal footpath. The beach, popular with kitesurfers is a 10 minute walk away.

This cottage has been perfect for us as a family of 3. We loved our evening walks down to Budle Bay and really enjoyed your recommendation to visit Ross Sands. Wow, what an amazing beach. Not another person around. Perfect!'
Great base for exploring North Northumberland and within easy reach of all the main tourist attractions. We went to Holy Island twice as we loved it so much. Also loved Ross Sands which is about a 5 minute drive from Coral Cottage. Did our local shopping in Belford and went to the new farm shop and cafe at Sunnyhills a couple of times. This was a really nice place to eat and to stock up on meat, organic produce and cheeses. We even went back one evening for supper and had a delicious 3 course meal. We would recommend Coral cottage to everyone, thanks'
It was fantastic to be so close to the Bay - I had some lovely tranquil sunset walks. But I also really enjoyed just reading in the garden in the evening, listening to the birds and watching the distant waves. Thanks again to you and your team for your care and effort (special mention to the delicious cherry cake in the welcome pack)
I loved this cottage so much when I holidayed here with my girlfriend that I booked again with my next girlfriend!
The property was exactly as described, clean and well maintained, the kitchen was well stocked and the lounge and bedrooms comfortable. The ambience was very calm and peaceful and location perfect.
