Houses in Bamburgh, Nr Beadnell, Northumberland, England - 2 Minutes Walk To The Castle, 5 Minutes To The Beach
Welcome to The Old School Bamburgh, situated on the Northumberland coastline, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The Old School is located centrally within picturesque Bamburgh village, with its fine selection of pubs and places to eat, literally on the doorstep. A short walk of 200 yards takes you to the village green and cricket pitch, nestling within the huge whinstone outcrop that supports the magnificent Bamburgh Castle. Another 200 yards (up the hill mind!), and you are at the gates of the Castle. The beach at Bamburgh is one of the best anywhere, with miles of unspoilt sand, rock pools, and dunes, all just a 5 minute walk from the school. For the golfers, we are less than a mile from Bamburgh Castle Golf Club, often referred to as one of the most picturesque courses in the country. Further a field, the busy harbour town of Seahouses is 4 miles by road; Lindisfarne/Holy Island is 16 miles, as is historic Alnwick, with its magnificent castle and gardens.

Tired and very dirty
We knew the interior would be tired from the photos. However, we were shocked at how dirty it was. There were hairs in all of the beds, all carpets and floors were unclean. The cutlery and pans all had old food stuck on - they were unusable. The cooker and fridge were disgusting, couldn't be used. A cleaner was sent back but we still had to spend our first day cleaning. The owner was completely disinterested. Would not recommend staying here.
Tired and dirty property
We knew from the photos the property was dated and it was. The shock was how dirty the inside was. Hair in all of the beds; unclean carpets and floors: dirty (had dried food on) crockery, cutlery and food utensils; fridge and oven were so dirty they were unusable. Whilst the cleaner did revisit which helped a bit, really the property is in need of a deep clean. the owner offered no apology. Very disappointing. Would not recommend.
