Bamburgh Five couldn’t be better positioned within Bamburgh village. The view is breathtaking and it has lots to explore from the doorstep. The magnificent beach, just a few minutes walk away is perfect to enjoy the sweeping sands of a beach so beautiful and unspoilt it’s often used as a backdrop for Hollywood blockbuster films. Bamburgh Castle stands majestically proud above the beach; well preserved and very well maintained and fascinating to explore.
The main street of the village is just 3 minutes away on foot, where you’ll find a fine selection of restaurants such as The Potted Lobster, pubs including the Lord Crewe Arms and quaint gift shops, a good green grocer, the famous ‘Carters’ butchers, several cafes and delis.
Bamburgh village is also home for the superb Grace Darling museum. Grace Darling was a famous local heroine who saved several souls from a shipwreck in stormy seas just off the coast of Bamburgh. Entry is free and it’s worth a pop in to get a sense of local history.
There are plenty of walks from Bamburgh, as well as the obvious beautiful beach walks on your doorstep. A walk northwards to Budle Bay will show you a wealth of interesting birds on the sweeping sands of the bay.

Tips from a local
A stay in Bamburgh isn’t complete without a visit to Carters Butchers on the main street to sample their famous ‘Bamburgh Bangers’ and pies. Carters Butchers is a family-run business and has been in existence since 1887.
They’re most famous for their divine pork pies and other meat pies, baked fresh that morning. Once they’re gone, they’re gone so don’t expect the shop to be open late in the afternoon as they close once all the fresh food has sold – go in the morning!
Tips from a local
Visit The Copper Kettle Tearoom which is located right in the heart of Bamburgh village. This popular tearoom serves delicious home-cooked lunches, sweet treats and a wide selection of hot and cold drinks. Either soak up the sun in the courtyard or cosy up inside the tearoom – either way, you’ll receive a warm welcome from the staff.
Tips from a local
Take an educational and very interesting visit to the Grace Darling Museum located in Bamburgh village. This museum tells the tale of Grace Darling who was born in Bamburgh in 1814 and moved to Longstone Lighthouse alongside her family, which is located on one of the Farne Islands which you can see just off the coast.
Grace Darling was the daughter of the lighthouse keeper and one stormy evening in 1838, the steamship SS Forefarshire ran aground onto rocks and broke in two, so Grace and her father set out in a rowing boat and as a result of their bravery saved the lives of 9 people.
The museum holds many of Grace and her family’s possessions, including the rowing boat she used to carry out the famous rescue. The museum tells the story of Grace’s life and untimely death in a fascinating and animated way.
Tips from a local
Experience a relaxing, well-earned pamper day at Beau Monde in Lucker. Beau Monde is the ideal place to relax, unwind and rejuvenate whilst on holiday and is located just a 10-minute drive from Bamburgh.
There’s a range of spa packages and treatments available to chose from or you can just enjoy a drink and unwind on a lounger by the pool.
Tips from a local
Head over to Budle Bay if you have an interest in bird-watching, it’s located a few minutes drive north of Bamburgh.
Budle Bay is part of the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve and is an important bird sanctuary with huge mud flats that are exposed at low tide. This nature reserve is particular popular for bird watchers in the winter when thousands of wildfowl and waders spend their time on the mud flats. If birdwatching isn’t your thing, you can always visit Budle Bay later in the day to watch the impressive sunset on a clear evening. Eitherway it’s a beautiful and unmissable place to see while you’re staying in Bamburgh.
