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!
David Ratliff purchased this house in 2004
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.
The property is at the entrance to Adderstone Hall Farm Steading, 400 yards from Adderstone Hall Estate , just off the A1 road, east , on the B1341 on the "Bamburgh Rd".The property faces east towards the coastline towards Bamburgh and beaches.

I spent a great weekend with my friends at Bamburgh house. Great location, had everything we needed, will definitely be going back.
Large and very warm house ideal for more than one family! Great for our pets, we didn't use some of the rooms! The one problem we had was sorted within 30 mins of arrival! Really easy to find, good value for money, owner always replied promptly and was very helpful! Had a lovely break, lovely places/castles/beaches close by! Blue bell hotel was also great, lovely food and excellent staff! Overall, we had a fantastic break with our children and was able to take our pets, a holiday we will remember forever!
Amazing stay - great property and location. All requirements already in property and clean and tidy. Can not recommend this place enough!
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.
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.
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.
