Bamburgh, near Alnwick, Northumberland, Seaside village

Late availability from 28th September to 1st October (3 night weekend break for £1110)

Think hunting lodge meets continental, ’Riviera Maison’ styling, on the edge of the very popular Northumberland conservation village of Bamburgh. The award-winning architecture of this exclusive eight-house cul-de-sac is complemented, in Castlegate, by an equally outstanding interior - all just a short walk from unspoilt beaches and the iconic Bamburgh Castle.

Attention to detail is abundant in the stonework and architectural design of this house, and the exquisitely furnished interior has a warm but elegant ambience. Special features catch your eye; beautiful handcrafted stone fireplaces with log burning stoves, elegant oak flooring, designer light fittings and a superb bespoke oak staircase. Natural light abounds in the open plan lounge areas and the kitchen, perfect for entertaining, opens out onto the large rear garden with stone patio - a perfect sun trap for outdoor dining.

Occupying the largest plot at the head of this quiet cul-de-sac, the large south-west facing lawned rear garden overlooks open countryside to the Cheviot Hills, with truly beautiful sunset views. From the other side of the house, notably the luxuriously appointed master bathroom, there are glimpses of Bamburgh Castle itself. This detached holiday home truly sets the tone for a first class holiday experience. From Castlegate, guests can easily walk to the castle and beach, coffee shop, gourmet fish and game restaurants, local market garden, friendly local butcher and pubs, before returning to the tranquil setting of this luxurious holiday home.
