Evocative of the natural beauty of Scandinavian design, this fantastic lodge forms part of a unique development within an oh-so-striking setting - built on the site of a former whinstone quarry, mid way between the stunning sands of Budle Bay and Bamburgh, one of the most popular beach destinations in England.

Just two miles from Bamburgh and miles of vast golden sands

With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, it will suit both families and couples alike, and with dogs welcome too, it really is tailor made for a perfect coastal getaway. A key feature of the lodge is its modernist cutting edge design, characterised by two vast glass windows in brushed powder grey, a perfect complement to the rugged surrounding landscape.

Inside, the look is wonderfully inviting, comprising a light filled open-plan living space with a fireplace dividing the sitting room space and kitchen/dining area. Three large sofas mean there’s plenty of relaxation room while a wood burner will add a certain cosy ambience on those cooler days when curling up with a good book feels like a good plan!

The smart kitchen with integrated units is well equipped with all the essentials while the dining area seats eight comfortably. Large bi-folding doors open up onto a south-facing deck giving plenty of dining options when the sun starts to shine.

There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, a king size double and a twin room (photo pending of twin singles bedroom). This lodge also benefits from a bath for those who luxuriate in a good soak.

A short walk through the woodland will take you up to the quarry top with a viewing platform which offers incredible views towards Bamburgh Castle and the Farne Islands beyond.

The village of Bamburgh sits 2.5 miles away 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 fresh seafood at The Potted Lobster located in the heart of the village; the Castle Hotel for a hearty pub meal and pretty beer garden; or the Victoria Hotel if you like great pub food and some chat next to the fire. Alternatively try The Wyndenwell for an ice-cream, cake and coffee stop, or the Copper Kettle, a characterful little tea-room serving a selection of freshly baked scones and light-bites. For something a bit more informal en-route to the beach, The Hut sits on the edge of the sand dunes for a delicious bacon butty or a kipper bun.

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. R 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. The nearest Co-op supermarket can be found in nearby Seahouses.


The beach at Bamburgh 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.

Sitting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within the Lindisfarne Nature Reserve, nature lovers, birdwatchers and photographers will be captivated by the vast variety of wildlife and birdlife at nearby Budle Bay. Holy Island is also a hot spot for vast numbers of migrant species, including the chance to see the odd grey seal bobbing inquisitively in the sea or basking on the sand flats while sightings of minke whales and white-beaked dolphins can also be spotted here in calm sea conditions.

No visit to this area should go by without a visit to the Farne Islands, and a recent accolade by Sir David Attenborough should leave you in no doubt as to its credentials when he declared it his favourite place in the UK to capture nature at its very best. Charters from the harbour run every day from Seahouses (weather permitting) and you will be enthralled by the thousands of breeding sea-birds and seals taking up every square foot of this incredible rocky outcrop, including over 37,000 pairs of characterful Puffins.

Walking and cycling in this area is a delight with an abundance of trails and waymarked routes suitable for all ages and abilities. Take the four mile circular walk from Bamburgh to Budle Bay with your four-legged friend, where you can experience amazing sunsets over the bay, or for cyclists, there are family routes, leisure routes, and mountain biking trails with everything from easy coastal stretches to high energy treks.

The whole area is bursting with things to do, dotted by a trail of castles and fortifications interspersed with pretty seaside villages all the way up and down the coast. The skyline is dominated by the dramatic outline of Bamburgh Castle from miles around, and a visit 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.

Finally, cross the causeway to Holy Island to trace the legend of St. Cuthbert; 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.

Platt Family

"We had a wonderful stay in Mallow Lodge which was in a beautiful, quiet location ideally situated to visit many attractions in Northumburland and Durham. At first we thought perhaps the quarry location might not be the best but we were wrong! It was so interesting watching all the birds and seeing so many wild flowers. Fantastic view of Bamburgh Castle and the Farne Islands from the top of the quarry. Sitting out and relaxing on the decking was a joy.

The weather was great, it only rained one day but as the lodge was so well equipped and comfortable it was no hardship to just spend the day indoors.

We had a lovely welcome pack left for us, including a bottle of wine – very welcome. The lodge was very clean and the beds were most comfortable with good quality bed linen. 

All in all, a brilliant holiday!"
