WOW! Greystead is the quintessential coastal retreat! This luxurious detached property is positioned at the foot of Bamburgh Castle.....arguably one of the most sought after locations on the Northumberland coastline.
Greystead has recently undergone a full makeover with every comfort for the total relaxation of holidaymakers being paramount. Newly renovated to the highest specification Greystead is simply sublime; a perfect choice for the gathering of families and friends. This extremely well appointed property is beautifully furnished throughout with so much thought, care and attention to the finer details to ensure a memorable holiday is enjoyed. The spacious lounge faces onto the cricket pitch at the foot of the castle. Watch the flames dance in the cosy wood burning stove after a day at play on the wide expanse of golden sandy beach Bamburgh is renowned for. There is a newly built large extension to the rear of the property to provide a state of the art dining kitchen with fabulous glass atrium to maximise the bright and airy ambience..... and watch the stars at night. Full length glass doors leads onto a decked area and enclosed garden; perfect for children and dogs at play. A large play room is also an excellent ’chill out’ area for children ( or adults!) and also leads onto the rear garden. One of the four double bedrooms is also conveniently placed on the ground floor enjoying lovely views and en suite facilities. On the first floor are three further beautiful bedrooms, all with fresh and contemporary en suite facilities. The master bedroom has a Juliet style balcony and windows that frame the castle - what a view! The other double bedroom is at the front of the property with views across the cricket pitch and castle towards the seashore. Children will absolutely adore the bedroom designed with their fun in mind. With four single beds it makes the ultimate ’sleep over’... even the en suite has two wash basins - so no queuing!

About the local area

Greystead enjoys the added convenience of private parking the rear - a true bonus in this highly sought after prestigious location. Within the very heart of the picture postcard coastal village of Bamburgh, Greystead nestles protected by the majestic castle, which commands the power and presence of the seasoned film set it regularly becomes. Enjoy a romantic stroll along the seashore and inhale the invigorating sea air; listen to the waves lap against the shoreline and feel the sand between your toes... This esteemed tourist destination offers several restaurants, charming pubs and quaint tea rooms along with ample local facilities including a convenience store, butcher, gift shops and a gallery as well as the Grace Darling Museum, all within a gentle stroll from Greystead. The tidal island of Lindisfarne, known locally as Holy Island, is regarded as the birth place of Christianity and can be viewed from the shoreline. The causeway leading onto the island is swept by the North Sea but safe to cross twice daily. Two miles north is the bird sanctuary at Budle Bay where at low tide a vast expanse of mud flats is home to countless thousands of wading birds making this location a haven for bird watchers. The traditional fishing port of Seahouses is only three miles down the coastline with its good range of local shops including a Co-Op and the Chinese takeaway and Indian restaurants are well worth a try. Watch the trawlers return to the harbour with their daily catch or take a boat trip to the Farne Islands - famous for bird sanctuaries and the seal colony - or set sail to test your fishing skills! There are several golf courses, some of them at championship level, in the area and horse riding is available close by too. The elegant Georgian town of Berwick, which straddles the salmon rich river Tweed, is 17 miles north and the bustling market town of Alnwick with its own magnificent castle is the ancestral home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy!) also offering many facilities around 15 miles away. Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction with its grand cascade waterfall and restaurant set within the largest tree house in Europe!
