Gull Cottage - Holiday Let in Bamburgh
This one-bedroom stone cottage, situated on the small road leading from the centre of the village to the beach could well be described as an "afterthought"! It is at the end of a terrace of houses, which have all been modernised to a high standard and forms part of the original farm building conversion. The overall development has been sympathetically constructed to maintain the original character. There is a gravelled area at the front, bordered by flower beds and to the rear is a paved area, with parking for one car.
A gate in the wall leads onto the village green and cricket field - at the rear of which stands Bamburgh Castle. A path skirting the castle brings you directly onto one of the most spectacular beaches in Northumberland. An all-weather tennis court, with flood lighting, has been constructed on the edge of the green and is available for anyone who wishes to use it. A fee is chargeable for this. Adjacent to the tennis court is a small well-constructed children’s play area.
IN AND AROUND BAMBURGH
Bamburgh itself is steeped in history and the castle, built in the 1200's rises out of the rock face, dominating the settlement of stone houses and cottages in this area of great natural beauty. There are two or three small village stores and four pubs, serving food and bar snacks.
Three miles away to the south of Bamburgh lies the fishing village of Seahouses with a larger selection of shops and supermarkets. The county town of Alnwick is approximately twenty miles away. This has many interesting features, including the Duchess of Northumberland`s Millennium Garden and Alnwick Castle, home to the Percy family. This is open to the public throughout the summer and houses a wealth of china and furnishings that make a visit a top priority.
Berwick upon Tweed is approximately half an hour’s drive to the North and is an interesting border town to explore, with the river Tweed an added attraction for fishermen. For walkers, there are many beautiful areas to explore and for those who are more experienced, a climb to the summit of the Cheviot is well worth the effort for the views from the top.
Lindisfarne Nature Reserve
The nearby Lindisfarne Nature Reserve is a famous centre for birdwatchers for whom a trip to the Farne Islands is essential - especially in July and early August when the islands are over-run with Puffin and Tern. At this time of the year, some sort of headgear is strongly recommended, as the Tern are highly protective of their young and are prone to "dive-bombing" anything they consider a threat, including human scalps! Boat trips go over to the Farnes on a regular basis during the holiday season, from Seahouses. Bamburgh is an ideal base from which to discover and explore this very diverse County and to go further afield to the Scottish Borders, Edinburgh, The Lake District or County Durham - we hope you will come and see it for yourselves.
