This beautifully restored chocolate box cottage offers charm and character in an idyllic village setting.
Overlooking Bamburgh cricket ground, this property is only a minute’s walk from the centre of Bamburgh. Here you will find several shops, restaurants and cafes together with the famous Bamburgh Castle, which sits high on the hill. The vast stretch of sandy beach below is ideal for long walks, horse riding or surfing, while the surrounding countryside offers a multitude of walking and cycling routes. At low tide, stroll across the causeway to visit the enigmatic Holy Island of Lindisfarne, one of Northumberland’s most popular attractions. Also within easy reach of the property are the seaside villages of Seahouses and Beadnell, offering fantastic dining, shopping, sporting and wildlife watching opportunities.
This historic cottage has been beautifully modernised using fresh neutral decor, delicate soft furnishings and coastal touches throughout. Prepare tasty meals in the light and airy kitchen, which contains modern appliances and units plus a full selection of utensils and cooking equipment. The lounge/diner next door is a beautifully presented room with a cosy dining area, weathered oak furniture, tasteful artwork and a wood burner set into an original fireplace. After a long day on foot, cosy up on the comfortable sofa and lose yourself in one of the many books that fill the alcove shelves, or make the most of the many channels, films and box sets available. This property offers two luxurious bedrooms, each of which has been tastefully decorated in calming neutral tones with rustic furniture and elegant fabrics. There is a king-size bedroom with TV, radio, walk-in wardrobe and adjoining bathroom with cabinet shower and a super-king-size bedroom (which can be presented as a twin if requested at the time of booking), with a fitted wardrobe, dressing table and en-suite shower room.
To the front of the house there is a delightful south-facing terrace with table and chairs for enjoying a cup of tea in the afternoon sun. Or step outside from the kitchen onto a large rear paved terrace with a dining table, BBQ and stunning display of mature plants. From here, the garden gate opens onto a grassy path running down to the dunes and beach. There is one dedicated parking space outside the cottage.
