Grove House Bamburgh

Book Now >
A charming village cottage situated in the centre of the sought after village of Bamburgh with views of the iconic castle, excellent amenities on the doorstep and just a few minutes’ walk to Bamburgh’s stunning beach.

Previously two cottages, there is plenty of space and flexible accommodation to suit either a family or two couples. Downstairs there’s a sitting room with open fire and a separate dining room with log burner. A sunny kitchen to the rear of the property leads onto the small patio garden which provides a sheltered spot for a morning cup of coffee. There’s also a downstairs cloakroom and utility room / boot room for the storage of outdoor kit.

Two staircases lead to two good sized bedrooms each with their own bathroom. One bedroom has zip and link beds for complete flexibility.

Local Amenities

The cottage is the perfect base for a break whatever the season set in the centre of the conservation village of Bamburgh. With friendly local shops, quaint tea-rooms, cosy pubs and restaurants on the doorstep as well as miles upon miles of stunning white sands, it is part of the reason visitors return to this area year-after-year, and why it remains one of the most popular beach destinations in England.

For dining-out, you can enjoy wonderful seafood at the Mizen Head Hotel; Blackett’s for an excellent bistro experience; Number 23 for great service and delicious freshly cooked food; The Castle Hotel for a good pub meal and pretty beer garden; or the Copper Kettle a characterful little tea-room serving a selection of freshly baked scones, cake and light-bites.

Alternatively, a short drive will take you to the popular Barn at Beal with amazing views over the causeway to Holy Island, or head a little further down coast to the Ship Inn at Low Newton (9 miles) which has a reputation for serving excellent local food (their crab sandwiches are legendary!) along with ales from their own micro-brewery.

For provisions, The Pantry is a super deli next door to the cottage selling meats, cheeses, preserves, freshly baked bread and smoked fish as well as lots of naughty puddings which all come from renowned local suppliers across the area. For picnics or lunches on-the-go, they will prepare sandwiches on request along with freshly ground coffee, or can arrange for food hampers full of gourmet goodies to be made up for your arrival at your holiday home. J Carter has been the village butchers for 125 years serving only the finest locally produced meat, homemade pies and award winning bacon which is cured and smoked on the premises. You will also find a family run greengrocers in the walled garden which was once used to serve the Castle.

As well as boasting its own magnificent Castle, the village is home to the Bamburgh Golf Club - an 18 hole golf course with outstanding views towards Lindisfarne, the Farne Islands and the Cheviot Hills. Rated by Golf World Magazine as ‘quite possibly the most beautiful and beautifully situated golf course in all England’ this tricky links course will both challenge and delight. You will also find tennis courts in the village which can be hired at a cost of £5 per hour.

Activities and Attractions

Standing on a quite spectacular 180 foot high basalt crag, the skyline is dominated by the dramatic outline of Bamburgh Castle from miles around. A visit to the Castle will allow you to experience over two thousand years of fascinating history with dark tales of royal rebellion, turbulent battles, and stories of powerful legend and folklore. The Grace Darling Museum also sits in the village and offers a wonderful insight into the life of this courageous young woman who was written into the history books in 1838 when she risked her life to row a boat out in treacherous seas to rescue survivors of the luxury steam ship Forfarshire.

The parish boundary extends from Budle Bay all the way down the coast to a point just short of Monks House below Seahouses, and comprises glorious curves of white sandy beaches backed by deep sand dunes, rocky outcrops and dramatic shorelines. The beach at Bamburgh, voted Britain’s best picnic spot in 2013, has again been awarded a distinction for its excellent water quality and beach cleanliness and it is a wonderful spot for families, walkers and water sports enthusiasts. Surfing and windsurfing is highly rated here with waves naturally breaking to the left and right as a result of the numerous sandbars along its length, and while there is no lifeguard cover on this section, it is seen as a safe spot for swimming. Alternatively, six miles south of Bamburgh, you will find excellent watersports on the golden sands of Beadnell Bay where you can launch boats, rent surfboards, wetsuits and bikes or try your hand at kitesurfing, windsurfing, sea canoeing and waterskiing with accredited instructors.

For young explorers, pack a fishing net along with a sand bucket and enjoy a spot of rock-pooling for tiny shore crabs, starfish or periwinkles at Bamburgh Lighthouse at Harkness Rocks - named by Countryfile as one of the top ten rockpooling areas in Britain. Here you can spend many happy hours dabbling in the plunge pools before taking a gentle wander back along the beach to the village.

The whole area is bursting with things to do here, dotted by a trail of castles and fortifications interspersed with pretty seaside villages all the way up and down the coast. Cross the causeway to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne to trace the legend of St. Cuthbert, take a boat trip from Seahouses to the outstanding Farne Islands nature reserve and seabird sanctuary, head to Craster to sample their legendary oak smoked kippers, visit the beautiful gardens at Howick Hall, or head inland to experience the medieval splendour of Alnwick Castle with its fantastic child-friendly activity programme inspired by the wizardly magic and broomstick antics of Harry Potter.

Walking and cycling in this area is a delight with an abundance of trails and waymarked routes suitable for all ages and abilities. Take a four mile circular walk from Bamburgh to Budle Bay, where you can experience amazing sunsets over the bay in early evening, or follow the Coast and Castles circular, a dog-friendly stretch involving a moderate walk of 8.5 miles taking in both coast and country. For cyclists, there are family routes, leisure routes, and mountain biking trails with everything from easy coastal stretches to high energy treks in the vast wilderness of the Northumberland National Park which can be easily accessed from Wooler.

"Just to say that the family - myself and husband, daughter and son-in-law - enjoyed our stay at Grove House Bambrugh very much indeed. So much so, I have booked it again for next year. Despite the summer season we made good use of the open fire which was a luxury. The welcome pack was wonderful. Overall, a wonderful, quaint cottage and one we are going to return to." - Garner

"It was our 5th stay at Grove House so I think it speaks for itself! It was as good as ever. Lovely, cosy cottage in an ideal position right in the middle of Bamburgh with all the facilities on your doorstep. The property is kept very clean and there was a generous welcome basket and a good supply of logs for the fires. Relaxing break, did not want to come home." - Dokic

"We had a wonderful stay at Grove House. We stay in cottages in the UK 2/3 times a year and Grove House was the best I have stayed in by far. It was so clean, welcoming and comfortable. We will definitely be back." - Carr

"We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay. The cottage was spotlessly clean, well equipped (including a very generous supply of logs and kindling - much appreciated when so cold outside) and welcoming. Great location. We will hopefully stay again." - Hill

"The property was beautiful, very cosy, comfortable and spotlessly clean (all due credit to the housekeeper who is doing a fantastic job) and one of the nicest properties I have stayed at in Northumberland (I visit every year on several occasions). I really cannot fault the property as it had everything I needed (and more) for a very enjoyable stay. The welcome pack and toiletries were first class and all the facilities were exceptional." - McConnell

"We had the most wonderful stay, what a perfect (surprisingly large) cottage! Being in the centre of Bamburgh was brilliant and the organisation of the booking via Crabtree & Crabtree was so easy and clear. Thank you so much, we will be back to one of your cottages!" - Moorcroft

"We are back home and I wanted to email to say how delighted we were with Grove House. The accommodation and location were perfect and the welcome basket of goodies is a lovely touch. We had a wonderful holiday and hope to return to the north east for another holiday. We will certainly be recommending Crabtree & Crabtree to friends." - O'Donnell
