Wild Goose in Bamburgh

Historic Bamburgh Apartment Looking out to Sea

Taking its name from the history of West House, Wild Goose has been aptly named from when West House ran as the Wild Goose Hotel in the 1930’s, before being converted into a collection of exclusive apartments looking out over the fields to sea, Lindisfarne and Budle Bay.

Wild Goose has all the character of a grand village home, set within this fabulous Edwardian home with tall ceilings and quirky features, this deceptively spacious first-floor apartment has uninterrupted views of the coastline and is just a short, 5 minute stroll into the centre of Bamburgh, passing the Grace Darling museum on the way.

Sleeping up to 4 guests, this gorgeous grand apartment is romantic just for 2 and ideal for couples holidaying together or a young family. 1 small-medium dog is very welcome too, as there’s an enclosed, shared garden to the rear and plenty of walks from your doorstep.

Twin Bedroom

Map & Local Area

Bamburgh is a gorgeous village, with dog-friendly pubs, pretty shops and the famous award-winning ‘Carter and Sons’ butchers, famous for their ‘Bamburgh Banger’. As well as the famous castle, there is also a huge beach which wraps around the bottom of the village and is dog friendly all year round. During the spring and summer months, you can watch the village cricketers play their matches against rival villages on the expansive bowling green, with the backdrop of the castle in the background.

Wild Goose is less than 5 minutes walk from the very centre of the village, where you will be spoiled for choice on eateries and pubs.  Seahouses is just 3 miles south, where you can catch the boat trips over to the Farne Islands and watch the daily catches come in at the harbour, then treat yourself to some of the best and freshest fish and chips in the country!  Beautiful Budle Bay is just 5 minutes to the north in the car and a birdwatcher’s paradise!  Holy Island is to the north (about 20 mins in the car) where you can visit Lindisfarne and the history-rich island. Watch out for those tide times though!

Interestingly, the house gets its name from its previous occupation as a hotel back in the 1930’s. The name came from the geese that migrate over from Scandinavia and the arctic in the autumn and setting in Budle Bay and Lindisfarne which you can view from the house.

Home and unpacked and wanted to say how happy we were at Wild Goose. This is the first time we’ve stayed in an apartment and in the centre of Bamburgh and it was a total delight. Sitting in the bay window watching the boats on the horizon, the sunset and just the general vista never failed to impress. Our daughter loved it too and despite her broken arm had a lovely time away. Once again thank you for your personal touch and always knowing we can rely on Coquet Cottages to deliver what they promise.

Tips from a local

Take advantage of the fabulous Northumberland Coastline and have a go at surfing at Embleton Beach, just 15 minutes’ south of Bamburgh, on the safe, coved bay!

Northside Surf School offer individual and group lessons for all ages and abilities. It’s a great day out for a family and a fun way of making memories with a group of friends during your holiday. Jon is a fully trained  lifeguard and surfing coach, and ensures everyone’s safety and enjoyment throughout the day – you won’t be disappointed!

Tips from a local

Take a walk out from the apartment and head over the dunes to stunning Bamburgh Beach and take in the breath-taking views of the castle, nestled in the dunes on the headlands. This place is a photographer’s dream, especially if you manage to catch a sunrise!

Tips from a local

Taste the most delicious, locally sourced seafood at The Potted Lobster positioned in the heart of Bamburgh village. The Potted Lobster has a real Mediterranean feel inside the restaurant with beautiful décor. Why not try it’s famous potted lobster starter which is a mixture of local lobster, brown shrimp, fresh crab and smoked salmon set in butter and served with warm toast (think post potted shrimp!) and wash it down with a local ale or glass of wine. Be sure to book well in advance as it’s a very popular restaurant!

Tips from a local

The Farne Islands lie two to three miles off the Northumberland coast midway between the fishing village of Seahouses and the Castle of Bamburgh. There are between 15 and 20 islands depending on the state of the tide. From April until the end of July, these islands are dominated by one of the most exciting seabird colonies in the United Kingdom with unrivalled views of 23 species, including tens of thousands pairs of puffins, the sight is a joy to behold. The islands are also the permanent home for a large colony of Atlantic or Grey Seals and one of the top grey seal pupping sites in England. We would recommend taking 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 Wild Goose is located so close to Seahouses. Make sure you book in advance as they are incredibly popular, especially after being featured on the much-loved TV series ‘Tales from Northumberland’ with Robson Green.

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 dog-friendly courtyard or cosy up inside the tearoom – either way, you’ll receive a warm welcome from the staff!

Jill Simpson and Family


We asked Jill what her favourite thing about Wild Goose is:

“I have been going to Bamburgh for family holidays since I was a little girl. Now I feel so happy to have a place where I can bring my own family in this beautiful coastal village.  We love the beaches, the castles, the big skies and amazing views. The kids especially love a trip to Wyndenwell’s for a scrumptious, home-made ice cream after a hard day at the beach! We hope you enjoy it here as much as we do!”
