Overview

With dream views over Bamburgh Castle, this stunning apartment is sure to leave its mark. 

Easy, relaxed elegance

Look forward to lazy mornings watching the colours of the day shift over the dramatic castle ramparts; settle-down for afternoon cricket on the green; or indulge in carefree beach walks just a stone’s throw from the door.

Forming part of a prestigious renovation of a 1930‘s arts and crafts house, the apartment sits on the first floor, opening up into a serene open plan living space with vaulted ceiling and Juliet balcony. The scheme is one of simple, beautiful design - allowing the view to take central stage. Fabrics from Manuel Canovas and stylish Dar lighting add to the sense of easy, relaxed elegance.

Dividing the living space, the kitchen has a sleek, contemporary finish with clean lines, high quality appliances and granite work surfaces, extending to a smart dining area with seating for six.

The three bedrooms bring together a soothing colour palette with subtle patterns and soft pretty throws, including a master bedroom with en-suite shower room and two further bedrooms, one with Jack and Jill access to the family bathroom.

Outside, the communal gardens, parking and external storage are accessed via secure electronic gates. A short meander will take you directly onto the dunes and the sublime sands of Bamburgh.

Location

With friendly local shops, quaint tea-rooms, cosy pubs and restaurants on the doorstep as well as miles upon miles of stunning golden 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 cosy chat next to the fire. Alternatively try the Castle Hotel for a good pub meal and pretty beer garden. For a coffee and cake stop, the Copper Kettle is a characterful little tea-room serving a selection of freshly baked scones 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.
