The Chimney

Glororum, Bamburgh

You cannot fail to notice this Retreat, as its tall red brick chimney stands proudly above its fellow stone farm buildings in this delightful group of superior holiday cottages just outside of Bamburgh village. Pull up to the front door and you will see a fusion of rooflines and skylights, above carefully restored rustic stone work. Step inside the imposing timber doorway and catch your breath as you sense the open space, the original architectural features and the high end contemporary interior styling by Richard Grafton Interiors .

Recommended in Period Living’s Great Group Getaway List and featured on Channel 4 ‘s Homes by the Sea, The Chimney is great for groups whether that is a girl’s getaway or an escape for family or friends.

Prices and Availability

Booking options

Monday 1st December

The Chimney is available for booking on the following durations.


Just a mile outside of the very popular and picturesque village of Bamburgh, with views from the front of The Chimney to Bamburgh Castle and the sea. This cottage is located within a beautiful development of former farm buildings, at Glororum, completed in 2013. It sits on the same development as some of our other cottages – The Bamburgh Coach House (sleeps 5/6), The New Dairy  (sleeps 4), The Clock House (sleeps 4) and Skyfall (sleeps 4)  – ideal for a group of people wanting to holiday in the same place but with their own separate space.

For further information about the area, see our Bamburgh section, and see our blog for inspiration on how to get The Chimney look in your own home.

Candid Comments

It’s perfect. A very grown up adult retreat (with some lovely child friendly touches too). No lawned garden but two private walled patio areas.

Guest Reviews

An exceptional property which hit the perfect tone for our Golden Wedding Anniversary get together

Absolutely superb!

We loved watching it on Homes by the sea and it was even better in real life

The property was just great, and if the weather had been awful and kept us stuck in the house, it would not have been a trial for us!

Excellent well equipped luxury home, looking forward to future visits.

This is one of the best equipped properties we have stayed in and of a very high standard. An excellent place to stay

Fantastic weekend at the fabulous Chimney in Bamburgh. Wonderful house for a group gathering...very stylish... didn't want to leave!!
