Bamburgh itself is a great day out and can be reached by car from Warenford in just 12 minutes! Not only does it boast a spectacular castle which welcomes many visitors, it is also home to various cafes such as the Copper Kettle Tea Rooms which are certainly worth a visit! You will also find a great gift shop, Blacketts of Bamburgh and a delicatessen, The Pantry, offering tasty freshly made sandwiches. A visit to the RNLI Grace Darling Museum really is a must, here you can learn about Grace’s heroic rescue of shipwrecked sailors on the Farne Islands.

Head south out of Bamburgh for about 3.5 miles and you will come to the bustling village of Seahouses. Here you can join the many tourists enjoying boat trips across to the Farne Islands to see various rare birds and also a large colony of Grey Seals! Beadnell village, which is just under two miles from Seahouses, is also a great place to visit, namely for its horse shoe shaped bay which offers visitors the chance to try water sports, of course you can just relax on the beach too if you are looking for something more relaxing.

Another very popular destination for visitors to the area is Alnwick, situated slightly inland it has an impressive castle (click to check opening times as the castle closing for the winter months) which draws in visitors from around the world. Famed for its appearance in Harry Potter, fans can take part in broomstick training exactly where Harry took his first lesson.

Delighted with the cottage, just refurbished in many parts. Lots of space. Very clean throughout. Very well equipped cottage, extra amenities brilliant. We will definitely consider coming back and will recommend to family and friends. Plenty of parking, wonderful welcome. We ordered our shopping to be delivered. We used the swimming pool facilities, which was a lovely treat. The cottage is spacious comfy and extremely well equipped. We took the train from Berwick to Edinburgh for a day out at the castle and Scottish Museum. We also recommend the boat trips around the Farne Islands departing from Seahouses. For horse riding we went on a hack at Townfoot Riding Stables at Shilbottle, lovely horses and staff, extremely helpful, lovely countryside hack. Bamburgh Castle interesting and right next to the lovely beach. Alnwick Castle and Gardens were a fab day out, if the weather is good the gardens are super for kids.
