Ideally located near the stunning Northumberland coast, this spacious and impressive holiday home is ideal for exploring the many glorious beaches and picturesque villages of the idyllic North East.

The Old Byre is one of our lovely coastal cottages that’s perfect for the whole, extended family as it offers bedroom and bathroom accommodation both on the ground floor, as well as upstairs. This impressive and spacious property offers excellent, self-catering Bamburgh accommodation for up to 8 guests in 4 lovely bedrooms with 3 bath and shower rooms located within Smugglers Court, in the popular hamlet of Waren Mill, near Bamburgh. This quiet spot is just a stone’s throw from the picturesque Budle Bay, home to a wide variety of bird life. It’s also just 6 minutes drive (2 miles south) from the magnificent Bamburgh Castle - with stretches of golden, sandy beaches below and views of the beautiful village it once protected.

When you stay in one of our Bamburgh holiday cottages, you get access to a variety of local attractions, activities and amenities. Bamburgh offers a wonderful range of restaurants, pubs, shops and local attractions to visit - including the historic RNLI Grace Darling Museum. Cross the causeway to Lindisfarne, known locally as Holy Island (the birthplace of Christianity), and explore the nearby seaside villages of Seahouses, Beadnell, Low Newton-by-the-Sea and Craster - as well as Alnwick’s market town, Castle and Gardens and so much more!

The Old Byre has been lovingly refurbished - and many of its charming original features remain, alongside the tasteful, modern additions and facilities. These include the magnificent stone-built inglenook fireplace, housing a large wood-burning stove (which ensures cosy evenings all year round); modern bath and shower rooms; and the conservatory/garden room, from which you can watch your children playing in the garden - all of which guarantee your stay will be a truly memorable one. If you’re set on staying in Bamburgh, cottages like The Old Byre are few and far between.

3 of the 4 bedrooms and 2 of the 3 bathrooms are on the ground floor, making this an ideal choice for families of all generations and groups of friends including anyone with restricted mobility.

There is an extensive, enclosed garden where you and your children can run around and play or sit back and take in the views of the picture-perfect countryside. A pretty stream on the other side of the garden wall, where the local wildlife (and friendly farm animals) can often be seen enjoying the water, makes this one of the most beautifully located cottages in Bamburgh.

There’s also a large patio area with outdoor furniture for dining out - and if you love nothing more than a great view, you can also enjoy the sights from the comfort of the sunny, elegantly furnished garden room (an ideal space to sit and take advantage of the peaceful setting).

Facilities in the cottage include free guest Wi-Fi, off road parking for 2 to 3 cars, a large wood-burning stove, a useful utility room, a travel cot and high chair and a range of children’s toys and games. Heating, hot water, bed linen and towels are all included.

We had a great time. The cottage was spacious, well equipped and in a great location. We had 3 generations staying together and it was perfect for all with some particularly good toys to entertain the children. We would definitely stay again.

The Old Byre is in a great location. Quiet. Beautifully kept. Garden pleasant and even the lawn was freshly cut prior to our arrival. The Cottage was all spic and span when we arrived. Smelt fresh and clean. Kitchen very clean and cooker all lined with foil ready for use (although we didn't actually use it on this occasion )

The Old Byre is a lovely, well-equipped cottage which is well situated for exploring the area and great for the wonderful beach at Bamburgh. We loved the gardens and cream tea at Howick Hall, fabulous food at the Apple Inn at Lucker, exploring Cragside and the castle and gardens at Alnwick.

The Old Byre is a spacious well equipped cottage that was ideal for a family group of three generations. Plenty of toys and books to occupy the children aged five and two. Our daughter especially enjoyed the play kitchen! Within easy access of all local attractions. We will definitely return in the future.

Spacious accommodation working well for 4 adults and 4 teenagers. Situated on a beautiful bay close to Bamburgh. In an excellent position for walking and enjoying the countryside.

A comfortable and spacious cottage, well-equipped; parking a bit tight for two large family cars negotiating the gate. A great area for walking and wildlife. Nearby Belford good for "essentials" shopping, with a couple of excellent coffee shops and well-stocked Co-op. Thouroughly recommend the Apple Core at Lucker village for evening meals, also InRead moresieme Italian at Seahouses. We absolutely! love the area, particularly the coast...still so much more to explore. Everything was well-organised and smooth, thank you. Hide

The cottage was amazing, we staying with family who visited from Australia for our mothers 70's Birthday. Everyone had a fantastic weekend and enjoyed Seahouses and found a beautiful spot at Newton By The Sea. We all found the facilities at the cottage amazing and had everything we needed to make our stay so special.

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.
