Bamburgh Coach House
An excellent choice for families visiting Bamburgh, this former coach house is a light and airy conversion with all the fun of a large garden and detached indoor heated games room. Recently featured in the British Travel Journal, it has glimpses of the sea and The Farne Islands can be seen from the two upstairs bedrooms and the spacious second triple bedroom has the flexibility of sleeping a sixth guest on request.

Arrival and Departure
Arrival: 4pm (3pm from Nov-March)
Children will enjoy the garden with trike and small seesaw and indoor games barn with table tennis table, table football and kid’s corner. The decor in the twin room is fun and there are books, a reading corner with beanbag and a dolls’ house for little ones. There’s even a full size keyboard for those with a musical bent. A travel cot (please bring your own cot linen) and highchair are available on request.
Would accommodate a larger family given that the second bedroom can sleep four children if the truckle bed is requested, but the space would equally suit one or two couples holidaying together.
LPG Underfloor heating with contemporary living flame gas fire in the living room.

The property was beautifully presented and well furnished. It was just like the photos!
Property was absolutely spotless
We chose to have all our meals apart from lunch at the property, and it had everything we needed in terms of kitchen equipment.
We loved the extra equipment we could borrow from the games room cupboard. The kids used the body boards for sledging down the sand dunes! The highlight of their trip! We also used the windbreak which was very handy as we don't own one. The table tennis table is brilliant and the main reason why I chose this property! Lots of spare balls and bats.
Many thanks to Coastal Retreats, you've come up trumps yet again. Every cottage you take on is better than the last! We have had such a fabulous holiday. Thanks team (5th year running)
So close to Bamburgh. Hadn't realised how perfect Glororum was in terms of accessing everything we wanted to see. Handy for travelling north to Holy Island, Ross Sands, Paxton House, Sunnyhills Farm Shop in Belford and Chainbridge Honey Farm (loved the double decker bus cafe and the vintage antique shop there), and equally handy for heading south to The Alnwick Garden, Seahouses, Beadnell, Embleton, Dunstanburgh Castle, and of course Bamburgh is on the doorstep.
The see-saw and table tennis were big hits with our toddlers and seven year olds. So much so, we almost had to drag them out of the garden! The Coach House was lovely to come back to at the end of the day - a peaceful little idyll.
We holidayed with another company in Northumberland last year to save some money and regretted it. We spent all holiday saying, we should have gone with Coastal Retreats. This holiday has been so different in so many ways and we will definitely be sticking to Coastal Retreats in the future. Thanks to Fiona, Jo and the girls in the office and also to Andrena who helped us out half way through the week when we lost the key to our car!
Have come home with my head full of design ideas. Must get hold of that cow wallpaper in the kitchen. We all loved it.
Perfect for us with our three children. The games room was a huge hit. A perfect holiday.
The Coach House was really lovely. We booked it along with neighbouring The New Dairy as we were holidaying with the grandparents, seven of us in total.
The games room was brilliant - for all of us, young and old. Lovely to sit in there watching the kids enjoying the space and the garden.
