Large Cottage Near Bamburgh And Belford. Ideal Location Sleeps 6. - BAMBURGH HOUSE Sleeps 12 (6 Bedrooms)



Updated: 24-Oct-2016
House and Cottage near Belford and Bamburgh , Northumberland, England - Peaceful rural location. Surrounded by farmland, Ideally situated & free golf at local course.

Bamburgh House and almost adjacent Lindisfarne Cottage are situated at the entrance of Adderstone Hall Farm Steading. The Steading was the working heart of the large Adderstone Hall Estate, which dates back hundreds of years, and was the family seat of the Forsters, including Thomas Forster - a leader in the Jacobite Rebellion, and through family following Lord Armstrong of Bamburgh Castle and Cragside fame.

In farmland near the steading are underground Roman remains of a settlement-being very near the old north road to Scotland. The area is truly "The Secret Kingdom" with fantastic scenic beaches, coastline, castles hills, countryside and scenic villages with popular eating, drinking and shopping venues. The area is an obvious choice for those seeking to enjoy quiet stunning sandy beaches and dunes, walking, bird watching, sailing, fishing, kite-flying, surfing cycling and riding. The renowned Bamburgh Castle ,Alnwick Castle and Gardens, The Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Farne Islands, other castles, Cragside, Chillingham with its`Wild Cattle are all nearby. Riding facilities are close-with a good hack to and on Bamburgh beach being superb. We offer special arrangements so you can bring your own horse (we can accommodate-with ringed pasture) unlimited FREE golf at Belford Golf club, and discounts in the restaurant at the much enjoyed Blue Bell Hotel in Belford.

Nearby, Belford Village ( the old market town for North Northumberland) has shops, a supermarket, post office, medical and dental practices, pharmacy , pubs, golf club with good food, and music sessions, hotel - with good bar, bistro and restaurant, church and visitor centre. Large national supermarkets are in Alnwick (15 mins to south) and Berwick, to the north. Alnwick is the seat of The Duke of Northumberland and has many shops, banks, and a Sports Centre with swimming pool. The location is superb-being very accessible to Belford, Bamburgh, the A1 and cost road which takes you north to Eyemouth, Berwick and south to Alnmouth and Amble - taking in the breathtaking Holy Island and Farnes. The coastline boasts some excellent golf courses eg Goswick, Alnmouth, Bamburgh, Seahouses, Foxton-as well as a number of sea food restaurants. To the north Salmon and Trout fishing are superb on the Tweed and Till. 400 yards away, the Service Station sells petrol, papers, food, fresh milk etc. The area is steeped in history including the "birth " of Christianity in this country - with St Cuthbert, Oswald and Aidan living here. Traditional music is vibrant in the local area - with sessions in Belford at The Golf club and Blue Bell Hotel. Hospitality, help and humour are the norm with Northumbrians! Guests can see dolphins, puffins, seals, numerous sea birds-on the local boat trips to The Farne Islands.

The house is large and airy, with parking for 8 cars to the front on private ground, has two lounges-one doubling as the main large dining room, 6 bedrooms, a small dining area off the first lounge, two family bathrooms, recess area off the hall with piano and computer, store cupboard housing "spares", many books (we are happy for paper back exchanges), family games, lawned garden shared with the smaller Lindisfarne Cottage. Seating and dining is organised for 18-in two dining areas-making group / family large groups ideal-all in one place! We often cater for numerous family, friends and university group reunions successfully. Having let it from 2005, we are reletting from JUNE 2014 along with Lindisfarne Cottage after carrying out improvements over the last year and is thus "just" on the market. Given it is a standard, rural, comfortable house, with all facilities but with the added benefit of free local golf, restaurant discounts, free " bring your horse" facility-it represents good, comfortable and economical holidays for families and groups.

We can house 400 yards away-large items eg bikes, canoes, kayaks etc in stores at Adderstone Hall. Our caretaker can provide-subject to availability- fresh eggs. The farm has also provided meat, vegetables and eggs to the Blue Bell Restaurant. The lounge has leather settees, chairs, large new LCD TV with DVD, CD/ RADIOS and a woodburning stove. Lounge 2 has a large dining table, sitting 12, with settee, chair and large LCD TV, DVD. Bedrooms are fully furnished-4 with twin beds, 2 with doubles.The house is all electric with electric central heating, wood burning stove ( logs provided),no gas present in the area, has a shared lawned garden with patio area, BBQ s, outside tables, chairs for 12, child items, and is gated for enclosed space. Linen and towels are provided, and the rental price includes electricity and logs for the wood burning stove. Our caretaker lives 400 yards away and is always helpful meaning guests rarely have to wait to resolve any problem or snagging issue. A small "welcome pack" with fresh milk is provided. At the heart of beautiful countryside, with so many facilities on hand and outdoor sports and attractions and wild life, our large accommodation offers a superb holiday!

About the Owner

From childhood-renting a caravan near Bamburgh I have adored this beautiful area-known as the "Secret Kingdom".Walks and cycling in the area, on the fantastic beaches of Bamburgh, and over to Holy Island remain as very happy memories.

My whole family adore the area now-for beautiful countryside, castles, coast line, superb golf courses, sailing , fishing and the ambience and good food and pubs!

Fortunately I was able from later in the 1990`s to purchase and develop into good holiday accommodation houses we use, and now offer for holiday guests to share our passion for the area.All guests remind us how lucky we are in this delightful area of England-steeped in history, near Scotland, convenient for the A1 and trains, airport and good roads.We hope you share our enthusiasm!

Avoid at all costs

  • 1 of 5

Disgustingly filthy. Many things not working, Iron, dryer, door handles, Internet, washing lines, showers. Terrible customer service, no reply from the owner except on Internet issue.

Owner's Response: WE ARE EXTREMELY CONCERNED AT THIS DISGRACEFUL REVIEW. We invite readers to look at the review from the large group who rented for a full week immediately prior. The person allegedly writing this review claims to have stayed immediately following the other group. Communication between owner and guests is vital.For this group we communicated with the "lead" booker, prior to the stay, regarding an internet problem, and we were concerned payments had not been received in the time scales per the Contract:we were near to reletting as we had alot of enquiries. In the event we received rent from another party:in the brochure sent out, in the property and at the Hotel for key pick up-owner, administration and caretaker,manager contacts are shown. We had not ONE concern or complaint from any of tis group, save a text re the internet. 3 free internet alternatives were given. The vast number of guests are honest, fair, constructive and intelligent.Had ANY turned up to find it""filthy"(which is a lie) they would contact us to remedy, go elsewhere, and ask for money back!! To post such a review is easy, cheap, disgraceful and disingenuous.We had NO complaints at all during the stay-indeed I spoke to one guest, who raised not ONE issue save internet. Fortunately such "GUESTS" are rare.To OWNERS-avoid this reviewer and group like the plague!!

Great location for family holiday

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a great location near Bamburgh, Seahouses and Beadnell with lovely views of the coast. The house is very spacious and the wood stove in the lounge made it cosy in the evening. Both the house and cottage were ideal for our large family gathering with kids and dogs; the properties are functional and comfortable rather than lavish. We had a great week and also enjoyed some lovely food and friendly service at the Bluebell Hotel in Belford.

Thank you and I hope you return! Kind regards David Susan and Michael.

Beautiful location, ideal for walkers.

  • 4 of 5

David was extremely helpful before and during our stay. Any issues were solved very quickly.

The accommodation was basic, but perfect for our needs. We were a large group with children and dogs and wanted somewhere to stay over New Year. The location is perfect for people wanting to experience the beauty of Northumberland and we were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights on NYE. Lots of places nearby to go for walks.

The heating and water heating system are a little outdated and meant that hot water was not on demand, but required a short wait to fill the boiler.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would stay again. Perfect for large groups, particularly if you are looking for somewhere that kids can be free to run around.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for such a nice review!New Year is great in the village-torchlight procession, fantastic fireworks and ceilidhe etc!. TELEPATHIC re heating/ water! In the area there is no natural gas and we depended on electric storage heating . We last week installed a whole new house Central Heating System with Combi hot water instantly from new boiler, calor gas led!! It is a huge benefit! Hope you return-as many guests do Thank you David and Michael.

Bamburgh House November 2015

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at Bamburgh House 13/14th November as a party of 8 adults and 6 children age 4 and under.

When we first arrived the house was very cold as all the windows were open & there musn't have been any heating on for a bit so it took a while to heat the house. I know we booked for November so weather isn't great but I think it would have been a nice touch if the house had been warmed up a bit or the windows closed as we had young children with us. There were also a couple of little other issues e.g. a few of the lights weren't working but when we rang the maintenance guy he was very helpful & offered to come out to the house.

Despite these little niggles we had a brilliant weekend, everyone had a great time. The house was a really good size & layout for our big party. It's in an ideal location, just a few minutes drive from Bamburgh Castle & Beach. The house was also very good value for money.

Our Great Holiday in Bamburgh House

  • 3 of 5

We had a brilliant stay in Bamburgh House. The house is clean, roomy and well equiped. We especially appreciated lighting a log fire at the end of one very rainy day. A great location for visiting the area just outside the village of Bamburgh and also in easy reach of beautiful Lindesfarne. The historic towns of Berwick and Alnwick are good for days out and Belford and Seahouses are good for everyday shopping. Our children and dogs ( and grown ups!) loved the beach just south of Bamburgh which is sandy and has a reasonabley priced car-park with toilets.

Since childhood I have had a huge love of this beautiful area-with superb coastline, beaches, countryside, castles, golf courses and activities. Holidays and long weekends here still delight my whole family-and we know the area intimately. Activities including sailing, walking cycling horse riding, golf, fishing and enjoying the steep history-St Cuthbert and St Aidan were here-keep us and visitors delightfully occupied!Coupled with Northumbrian hospitality, some fantastic folk and traditional music,the area is a must to enjoy peace and quiet or good social activities.Being just off the A1 route from London to Edinburgh, and near train stations, and Newcastle Airport makes access to us very convenient. We are 3 mls only from Bamburgh-on the " Bamburgh Road", and 2 mls from Belford.
