Brada House is in a wonderful location and beautifully presented. It was so easy to relax and enjoy this house with the family and dogs. The views from the house are stunning and it’s so peaceful. It was wonderful to be able to walk into a home where cleaning standards were superb. We had a fabulous week at Brada House, it really was superb. It was a lovely touch that the owners left my husband a bottle of red wine and a birthday card for him, thank you. We would definitely love to return again, without doubt!Escape the ordinary read our guest book
Tips from a local
Walk or drive to Bamburgh village and walk from Bamburgh beach around to Budle Bay. The bay is full of wildlife at all times of the year and is a stunning expanse of golden sandy beach when the tide is out. On your way back to Bamburgh, admire the magnificent castle on the headland.
Tips from a local
Take a boat tour out to the Farne Islands with Billy Shiel’s boat trips. This is a must when you come to Northumberland, especially as you are so close to Seahouses. The tours leave from Seahouses harbour and sail all around the Farne Islands. Some stop at the islands where you can get off the boat and have a tour by one of the local rangers, and each boat tour differs depending on the season and what is nesting/breeding around the island. Billy Shiel’s tours are the largest operator in the town, still ran by all the members of the Shiel family who are the most knowledgeable about the area. Make sure you book in advance as they are incredibly popular, especially after being features on Robson Green’s Northumberland!
