This beautiful Grade 2 listed Georgian property, which dates back to 1692, is positioned on the Front Street of the highly desirable picture postcard coastal village of Bamburgh and reflects the epitome of style. An elegant Victorian extension to the rear means this property is deceptively spacious.
Number 8, Front Street has recently undergone a total makeover to provide elegant spacious self-catering holiday accommodation completed to a superior standard. Immaculately presented throughout with much thought, care and attention to the finer details, this stunning property oozes both style and charm, and is simply divine!
The lounge boasts a magnificent inglenook open fire, idyllic to snuggle in front of and watch the flames dance, and original works of contemporary art. The dining room boasts a large wood-burning stove nestled in the original Northumbrian stone fireplace, with two comfortable fireside chairs, making this property a suitable choice for holidaymakers whatever the season. The modern kitchen is well-equipped and leads to a large fully enclosed, private garden at the rear – a perfect spot to dine al fresco and for children and pets safe at play. There is also the convenience of a shower room on the ground floor.
Three beautifully co-ordinated double bedrooms on the first floor enjoy views across the large garden at the rear, towards the Castle, or overlooking the village green at the front and a fresh, modern family bathroom completes the picture.
The Front Street of Bamburgh is arguably one of the most prestigious postcodes in North Northumberland. Number 8 is situated overlooking the village green next to the historic carriage arch of the welcoming Castle Inn where guests regularly receive a friendly greeting. The commanding presence of the magnificent Bamburgh Castle, with its impressive film and TV pedigree, dominates the coastline. This esteemed tourist destination offers several restaurants, charming pubs and quaint tea rooms along with ample local facilities including a convenience store, butcher (home of the famous Bamburgh banger and a Rick Stein Food hero), gift shops and an art gallery as well as the Grace Darling Museum, all within a gentle stroll from Number 8, Front Street. The wide expanse of golden and often empty sandy beach that Bamburgh is renowned for is idyllic for those who yearn to inhale the invigorating sea air, feel the sand between their toes and listen to the lap of the waves as they gently reach the shore… The tidal island of Lindisfarne, known locally as Holy Island, is regarded as the birth place of Christianity and can be viewed from the shoreline. The causeway leading onto the island is swept by the North Sea but safe to cross twice daily. Two miles north of Bamburgh is the bird sanctuary at Budle Bay where at low tide a vast expanse of mud flats is home to countless thousands of wading birds making this location a haven for bird watchers. Offering views of Lindisfarne, the Farne Islands, the Cheviots and Bamburgh Castle, Bamburgh golf course is one of the most beautiful links course in the world.
