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.

Sorry - The Old Byre does not accept dogs.

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.
