Description

Snuggled down a private single track and commanding magnificent views towards Bamburgh castle and the sea beyond, this fabulous cottage has undergone complete renovation to provide sublime holiday accommodation. This property is divine!  Recently extended and refurbished to an excellent standard with so many beautiful, natural materials ensure The Cottage at Glororum is exquisite.  A coal fire in the lounge makes it a cosy choice whatever the season and the contemporary kitchen boast solid oak units and granite work surfaces with beautiful slate flooring.  There is extra luxurious comfortable seating in the spacious dining area too with an additional TV – ideal for use as a second lounge too.

Wander along the wide expanse of golden sandy and often empty beach where the tidal island of Lindisfarne, known locally as Holy Island and the birth place of Christianity, can be seen on the horizon. There is a bird sanctuary at Budle Bay close by and at low tide a vast expanse of mud flats is the home to countless thousands of sea and land birds; a haven for ornithologists. A warm welcome greets guests to the friendly village of Belford which offers many facilities including an impressive golf driving range only 4 miles inland. Take a boat trip to the Farne Islands – famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony – from the harbour in the traditional fishing village of Seahouses where there are ample shops, pubs and tea rooms or enjoy horse riding or a round of golf on the links only 3 miles down the coastline. The market town of Alnwick, with its own castle offers many facilities around 15 miles away; Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction with its grand cascade waterfall and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe!   The Cottage at Glororum is the quintessential retreat for those seeking spacious and well appointed holiday accommodation in a peaceful rural setting on the fringe of the prestigious and highly sought after holiday village of Bamburgh coupled with giving guests an easy opportunity to indulge in the simple pleasure of strolling barefoot in the sand, inhale the invigorating sea air and watch the waves lap against the shoreline of this stunning stretch of Heritage coastline this region is proud to have awarded as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Bolstridge Family -

Greatly appreciated the terrific welcome (tea/coffee/milk!) The whole place felt like home from the moment we arrived. The dogs (2 pointers) loved the house, the garden, the fields (harvesting was over) and so on. Even our 1 year old daughter loved the view.


The Straffords Family -

What a fab place! The location and view are both perfect and we loved the dog friendly garden. Would love to come again.

Perfect seclusion. Perfect accommodation for dogs, teenagers and so called grown ups!

The Beech Family -

Just had another lovely week. This is the 3rd year we have stayed here and everything in the cottage is just as good as our first stay. The weather has been kind again and we have enjoyed many long days on the beach. We have seen a family of pheasants here and saw a deer in the field today. This cottage and this area has all that we need for a peaceful relaxing holiday and I think there is a good chance we will be back!!
