We have stayed in Bamburgh many times. but wanted a special house for a big birthday in 2015. Greystead sounded perfect for 3 generations plus dog - and it was! The house is fantastic, both in size and amenities, with a perfect location overlooking the cricket pitch and the castle. We stayed twice last year and are just about to book again for this year. The whole family love the house, we couldn't recommend it more highly.

Amazing house in fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday at Greystead!

4 generations were able to relax, have fun, and reconnect in this wonderful

property. The house was well equipped,spacious and beautifully laid out,

and all the personal touches including the beautiful flowers were the

icing on the cake. We all fell in love with Greystead, Bamburgh and

Northumberland in general.

The Perfect House in sunny Bamburgh

  • 5 of 5

Greystead really was the most perfect house and setting for a family holiday. It is beautifully done up, immaculately clean, with everything you could possibly need, very comfortable and very homely. I couldn't recommend it enough!

The beaches at Bamburgh are a few minutes walk away from Greystead. You can also drive to visit the miles and miles of the Northumberland Heritage Coastline.


Bamburgh is set in beautiful Northumberland countryside, approximately midway between Berwick upon Tweed and Alnwick (and some sixteen miles from both). 39 miles from the nearest airport (Newcastle) and 4.4 miles from the nearest railway station (Chathill). For InterCity services, residents must first travel to Alnmouth or Berwick upon Tweed. Travelling northbound on the A1 turn off at Adderstone services and follow the B1341. Bamburgh is about 5 miles.


Greystead is located in the centre of Bamburgh. Walking distance form all there is to offer in the village. As well as Bamburgh Castle, St Aidan's Church and The Grace Darling Museum are located within the village. Greystead is perfectly located in the heart of the village, guests can walk to the famous Bamburgh butcher run by the Carter family for the past 125 years. There is also an excellent grocer and delicatessen, coffee shop, pubs and hotels to dine in.

Further Details:

Bamburgh village sits on a coastline of outstanding beaches which are as long as they are wide. The Bamburgh Dunes, an area of sand dunes which are a Site of Special Scientific Interest, stand behind the award winning beach. This is a place for walkers, bird lovers and kite fliers. Bamburgh also has a number of Tennis Courts, located at the back of the cricket green, below the Castle. Hire of a court is just £5 per hour with an additional key deposit of £5. The courts are available to book from the reception of the Victoria Hotel, where you also collect and return your key. The Cricket Green in the shadows of the Castle walls has been used since the 1800's. Matches are usually played on a Sunday afternoon, which just adds to the character of this wonderful little village. The Cricket Green is also home to Bamburgh’s Croquet Club. The Northumberland Coast is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and as such offers some of the best coastal walking in the country. The Northumberland Coast Path runs from Beadnell in the South, through Seahouses and on towards the magnificent Bamburgh Castle in the North. Bamburgh makes an excellent base for walkers. There are three lovely walks to choose from in Bamburgh. The first heads up The Wynding toward the coast from the Village and heading North along the bridleway to the beautiful Budle Bay, popular with bird watchers. The second is a walk from Bamburgh to Seahouses, which is approximately three miles each way. Lastly there is a short circular walk that takes in the Castle, beach and golf course. From the Village head along the far side of the Cricket Green next to the Castle and towards the beach; from here you can walk North along the beach until you reach stags rock (an animal painted on the rocks), from here cut through the sand dunes and onto The Wynding. This road leads you all the way back into the Village.

From the Owner

The house is incredibly convenient. Located in the centre of Bamburgh just below the Castle and opposite the cricket pitch. Our children play in the play area and tennis most evenings we are there and we can see them from the house, allowing them enough freedom but still under our watchful eye! You can walk to the grocer/butcher and pub from Greystead. You can also walk to Bamburgh Castle Beach within 5 minutes... I promise you it is idyllic.
