The New Dairy
A Stylish, Romantic Retreat with views of Bamburgh Castle
The New Dairy just outside of Bamburgh Village is a stunning cottage with views of the magnificent Bamburgh Castle. Ideal just for 2 but spacious enough for 3 guests, this contemporary yet incredibly cosy and comfortable cottage is a peaceful haven just over a mile from historic Bamburgh village.
Alike the inside of an interiors magazine, The New Dairy will most certainly impress even the most discerning of guests. It’s high standard of quality and style are matched equally by comfort, so you can settle easily into this gorgeous retreat.
You can reach Bamburgh village on foot during the day to meander around the pretty gift shops, tour the castle or stroll along the golden sandy beach which wraps around the foot of the castle rocks. The coastal villages of Seahouses, Beadnell, Embleton and Craster are all within an easy driving distance, and the market town of Alnwick and famous Holy Island are nearby too.
The New Dairy is pet-free and accommodation is all on one level. The New Dairy also has access to the members-only Ocean Club Leisure & Spa in Seahouses.
This gorgeous cottage sleeps up to 3 guests but is suited very well to just a couple who may be looking for a little extra space. The master bedroom has a king size bed and the single room houses a single bed, both rooms have plenty of storage. There is 1 bathroom with a separate bath, walk-in shower, heated towel rail, sink and WC.
The lounge, dining space and kitchen are all open plan, with a gas fire at one end and the lovely big windows looking out to the gravel garden. The utility space is at the far end of the property with a separate entrance, which is very useful when returning from a walk and also for housing extra storage.
No pets are permitted at The New Dairy so it is perfect for any guests who suffer from allergies. The New Dairy also has access to the members-only Ocean Club Leisure in Seahouses.

Map & Local Area
The picturesque village of Bamburgh is within walking distance of The New Dairy and has a range of great pubs, restaurants, shops, the renowned Grace Darling Museum, Bamburgh Castle and Bamburgh beach. You can also walk to Budle Bay along Bamburgh beach too, which has an abundance of wildlife to observe at all times of the year.
It will take approx. 20-22 mins to walk into Bamburgh village along the footpaths, but these aren’t lit so it’s not recommended in the winter with dark nights unless you have torch. The footpath is between the fields, rather than along the road. Otherwise, it’s no more than 3-4 minutes in the car.
Seahouses is another great vibrant little town which is another 5 mins’ drive south from Bamburgh. Whilst there’s an element of kiss-me-quick seaside charm, there’s some great little gift shops and of course, the famous boat trips that visit the Farne Islands that leave from the harbour.

The cottage was beautiful and the location was fantastic. Would stay again without a doubt! It was beautifully furnished but with lots of home comforts including children’s toys and books (which my little girl enjoyed!) and toiletries, cleaning products and a fab welcome hamper. We had a lovely relaxing holiday. The scones were yummy as was the bread and it was really thoughtful to have fresh milk and butter in the fridge! Location, comfort, cleanliness and home touches but really felt like a lovely relaxing place!Escape the ordinary read our guest book

Dine at The Potted Lobster
Owned and run by renowed local chef Richard Simm. With the catch of the day from Seahouses, prepared beautifully and straight onto your plate – Seafood doesn’t get much fresher than this! The restaurant has a great atmosphere, and is incredibly popular with locals and holiday makers alike so be sure to book in advance!
Tips from a local
Enjoy Bamburgh Beach
Take a walk out from the cottage and head over the dunes to stunning Bamburgh Beach and absorb the breathtaking views of the castle, nestled in the dunes on the headlands. This place is a photographer’s dream, especially if you get out there early enough to catch a sunrise!
Tips from a local
Dine at Beadnell Towers
Beadnell Towers is located in the cosy, coastal village of Beadnell just a short drive away from The New Dairy. Beadnell Towers is a centuries old building, with a modem stamp.
