Nice property in a great location, which with a new mattress would be so much better - we were booked for 3 nights but left after 2 because of this. Other than that, the room although compact is well equipped for a few nights and the view across the fields is beautiful. The amount of information provided about the surrounding area was the best wed Read moreseen, from walks, restaurants and details of local vets. Very cosy with the log burner on. I would recommend but only if a new mattress is provided. Hide

Bamburgh Gate 2 was a lovely studio cottage for myself and my husband. We were immediately blown away when we walked in and my husband remarked it was a really good find. Small but perfectly formed and an excellent base for a week exploring Northumberland.

Beautiful location with lots to do. However, if you want a holiday where you like to relax at the accommodation, then youd probably want something a bit bigger. Its a lovely little cottage, but slightly claustrophobic.

Famed for its picturesque harbour and panoramic views of the spectacular Farne Islands, the bustling fishing village of Seahouses features everything you would expect from a seaside holiday and more. All the beaches in the area are dog-friendly, while there is also a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted. For the adventurous, there are breath-taking coastal paths to trek or scuba diving to enjoy and for those interested in local history, there is a broad spectrum of historical landmarks to discover nearby including the magnificent castles of Bamburgh and Alnwick.

There are boats trips taking visitors to see the spectacular wildlife habitats on the Farne Islands all year round. But if you’d rather stay on land there is Bamburgh Castle Golf Club, one of the most scenic golf courses in Britain, or guided walking tours of the beautiful coast to indulge in. Helping to maintain the character of the village, the variety of independent shops provides a unique shopping experience as well as a great opportunity to get your hands on some delicious local produce.
