Stepping outside, the back door leads out to a walkway at the side of the house with a park-style bench, and leads on to the rear garden. You can relax and dine alfresco in the large, enclosed lawn garden to the rear of the property, with mature shrubs and a lovely patio area with dining furniture. The garden is extensive, perfect for children to run around in or for you to sit back and take in the views of the picture-perfect countryside. A pretty stream on the other side of the garden wall, where the local wildlife (and friendly farm animals) can often be seen enjoying the water, makes this one of the most beautifully located cottages in Bamburgh. There’s ample parking available for 2 to 3 cars inside the gated area next to the house.
