Pepperclose Cottage is a fully restored 18th century, stone, self-catering holiday cottage in Bamburgh, Northumberland. It sits across the cricket field below Bamburgh Castle, which can be seen through the windows to the east and south.

Situated off the Wynding, a lane running down to the golf course, yet only a minute’s walk from the centre of Bamburgh, this is one of the very best locations in the most stunning village on Northumberland’s wonderful Heritage Coast.

This award winning cottage with a 5 star rating with Gold Award from the tourist board is a luxury self-catering holiday cottage in Bamburgh, Northumberland and is ideal for a family or a group of four.

A light and airy sitting room with a dining table is at the centre of the cottage. There is a log stove, comfortable seating and masses of books, pictures and prints, giving the cottage a very homely feeling. A flat-screen Freeview television, DVD, stereo with IPod dock and weather oak furniture, quality pictures and prints, and a real sense of style make this the perfect home from home.

The granite-topped kitchen, opening from the sitting room has views down to the beach, and is equipped with everything that one could possibly wish for, including a modern Neff electric oven and hob with microwave, washer/drier, dishwasher, and an extensive range of kitchen utensils.

Pepperclose Cottage faces South with a delightful south facing private terrace with table and chairs by the front door. The door from the kitchen opens onto a large paved terrace with a dining table, barbeque, mature plants, pots of flowers and herbs and a view to the coast. The garden gates open onto a grassy path running down to the dunes and beach.

A comfortable, well-equipped and pretty cottage with two small, but beautifully planted outdoor spaces to sit in when weather permits. An ideal location, with lots to do on foot, such as explore Bamburgh village, castle and beach or use it as a base to see the rest of Northumberland.

There is a park literally outside with benches to relax whilst you can watch the kids play. The cottage itself is deceivingly very big insideRead more.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
