St Bede is an enchanting cottage with a spiral staircase leading to the galleried double bed. Situated on the beautiful heritage coastal route only 2 miles from Craster, which is famous for its smoked kippers and the glorious walk to Dunstanburgh Castle. Howick Hall Gardens are nearby and well worth a visit, with banks of rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias in the spring. A visit to Holy Island, which is reached via a tidal causeway and famous for the Lindisfarne Gospels, is a must, and not forgetting the pretty village of Bamburgh with its majestic castle overlooking the wide sandy beach. Alnwick Castle and Gardens, with its spectacular grand cascade waterfall, are 4 miles away, and walking, sandy beaches, fishing, golf, surfing and cycling are close by. A former retreat run by nuns, The Old Mill (ref 25579) is ideal for families and groups of friends, with plenty of quirky living space both inside and outside making it a cosy retreat, with logs for the open fires and wood burners included. St Cuthbert’s (ref 25580) and St Bede (ref 25581) are perfect bases for couples, with some privacy in the small courtyards. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

St Bede can be booked together with The Old Mill (25579) and St Cuthbert’s (25580) to accommodate up to 18 guests with seating available in the dining room of The Old Mill for all guests.

    St Bede was very clean and comfortable. It was very peaceful to return to in the evening and to wake up to in the morning. In a good position for all NE attractions, walks and places to eat.

    Stunning cottage in a beautiful location. Ideal if you want to get away from it all. Excellent base for exploring Northumberland. The welcome gift of Prosecco, chocolates and flowers was a lovely surprise.

    One of the most beautiful locations, the cottage was exceptional. The owners thought of everything and made it available the welcome flowers, chocolate and Prosecco was really lovely. They made it really hard to leave!

    A good base for Craster, Alnwick, Warkworth etc. Good quiet location, comfortable cottage. Mattress was a little soft but perfectly comfortable, but this is a personal opinion and we are used to a firm mattress! Good kitchen equipment, and a welcome bottle of wine, chocs etc. No hesitation in recommending.

    A lovely cottage in a secluded location... we had everything we needed for our stay and it felt like home just for a few days. Perfect location for exploring Northumberland including Craster and Bamburgh. Would definitely recommend, but don’t tell everyone!

    St Bede offers great accommodation for a couple - everything you need in a very small space! The cottage is fitted out to a high standard and the owners provided lots of nice extra touches. It is in a very quiet area with fields all around but near enough to places to visit. Highly recommend.
