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.
Of course, inside will have something to live up to, so the interior has been set to reflect its location in a bold, but classic, coastal interior design scheme.

Love the cottage and upside down living, our lovely stay at Skyfall was memorable and very comfortable.
Skyfall was beautiful, well kept and had everything we could wish for.
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.
Great to have both coastal and countryside views from the same property!
Excellent location for us with our young children and we all loved the upside down living.
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.
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
