near Bamburgh

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 ‘oooh!’ factors.  Formerly a quarry for the Budle Hall estate, and the source of the stone with which Bamburgh Castle itself was built, the site 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!

Featured in our 5 Great Outdoor Places for Summer Stays and one of our Best Cottages with Real Fires.

Prices and Availability

Booking options

Monday 1st December

Seagrass is available for booking on the following durations.


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.

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!

Absolutely fabulous! Beautiful location, fantastic lodge. Will definitely stay at either this lodge again or may try another Coastal Retreats cottage.

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!

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.

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

We have had another fabulous holiday with coastal retreats and the property has been fabulous. Thank you to you and your team for all that you do.

The local 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
