Neville Tower Bamburgh Castle

Book Now >
We are thrilled to announce the launch of Neville Tower, part of Northumberland’s iconic Bamburgh Castle and one of the most unique holiday homes to be launched on the Northumberland Coast for many years.

The Tower, which has spacious accommodation over three floors, has been fully renovated to a high standard throughout and sits within the walls of Bamburgh Castle, moments from Bamburgh's stunning beach. The highlight is the impressive top floor living area with incredible far-reaching views to the north and south over Bamburgh beach, the Farne Islands and Holy Island.

On the first floor there’s a fully-equipped kitchen with informal dining area, bedroom with king size bed and bathroom with bath with shower over.

The ground floor is split level with an entrance hall at one level leading down to a second bedroom with zip and link beds (which can be superking or twin) and adjacent WC, providing privacy for two couples holidaying together.

Both bedrooms are spacious with fabulous views over Bamburgh’s magnificent beach, whilst the kitchen overlooks the village and the Castle Keep and Inner Ward.

The period styling includes heritage colours by Farrow & Ball, Jim Lawrence lighting, bespoke curtains and cushions in sumptuous crewel, linen and velvet fabrics and beautiful wool throws by innovative Welsh designer Melin Tregwynt.

Local amenities

With friendly local shops, quaint tea-rooms, cosy pubs and restaurants on the doorstep as well as miles upon miles of stunning white sands within walking distance 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 fantastic seafood at The Potted Lobster; the Mizen for a superior eating experience; or the Victoria Hotel if you like great pub food and a great chat next to the fire. Alternatively try 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.

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 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.

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 sits nearby 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.

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 for a nominal fee.

The beach at Bamburgh comprises glorious curves of white sand backed by deep sand dunes, rocky outcrops and dramatic shorelines. and 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.
