This is a lovely property in a fantastic location. This was our first visit to this part of the country and yes the east coast has a cold wild wind even though the sun was shining. Go inland a bit and it is much warmer but stay at the barn. The view from the property of the castle is amazing. Very highly recommended.
The reason we gave this place 4 instead of 5 is twofold. Firstly upon arrival we had a problem entering the property (the remote control for the gate did not work and there was no other way to get to the front door bar climbing over the wall, which we did!). Secondly there is no clothes hanging space in one of the bedrooms and whilst that might work fine for a child's room, for 3 couples staying for a week it was not ideal. (The remote issue was swiftly resolved next morning and I know the owners are looking at a better back-up solution). So very good, but not excellent.
Now the good stuff, the location is wonderful, with stunning views of Bamburgh castle and parking for 3 cars. Everything in Bamburgh is close by and easy to walk to from the property.
The property is of a very high quality finish throughout, it is light and bright and very welcoming. There is a large deck area right outside the living room where we ate breakfast and watched the evening sun light up the castle. The living area is generously sized with sofa seating at one end, a large dining table in the centre next to a very well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms (one double, two twin) and ensuite bathrooms (two with shower cubicle, one bath with shower over) are compact but very well done, the quality of fixtures and fittings is very good.
We stayed in April and the evenings were cool, but the property was lovely and warm with underfloor heating to the living areas, very comfortable. You could stay here in January no problems!
Wifi had good coverage throughout the building but the connection was a little slow, so browsing but no streaming here.
Overall a very good quality property, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend.
We recently spent a long weekend at Bamburgh Barn and loved every minute. The living/dining/kitchen area is very spacious and the kitchen is really well equipped. 3 good sized bedrooms with really comfy beds and all en suite. We were lucky to have some sunny weather and it was beautiful to be sat outside over looking the castle. Can't recommend this place enough especially for families.
Fantastic barn - and deserves the title of luxury barn. Really cosy place to be, and a wonderful location too - we spent some time just gazing at the castle and watching it change through the day and as the lights went on at night,
Kitchen was well kitted out and shower was super powerful. I slept so well! I don't often (ever!) go back to places I've been, but this must be the best place to stay in bamburgh, and so I'll definitely be back.
