Facing the Sand dunes with views from the garden to the magnificent Castle, The Ranch is a cosy detached bungalow for up to 5 people. Only a short walk from the stunning beach at Bamburgh set in the popular seaside resort of Bamburgh, a small village set on the northern stretch of the Northumberland Heritage Coast with the castle dominating over the castle set on the cliffside. The beauty of seeing the castle for the first time is truly breath-taking and one which visitor will remember for years to come once they leave this glorious part of Northumberland.
The friendly village pubs and tea rooms have food and drinks for all tastes, leave your car behind and take an evening stroll into the village centre. The beach behind the castle is stunning, with many photographers often spotted with the castle as a backdrop it is memory you will treasure forever, visit St. Aidan’s Church and the newly renovated museum dedicated to Grace Darling the local hero and hear and see her story in the museum. Only a short drive and you are in Seahouses, take a trip to the Farne Islands on one of the local boats and see the medieval Pele Tower and Victorian Lighthouse, as well as the famous sea bird colony.
Depending on the time of year, you may even spot one of the friendly seals and puffins that visit the islands. Golfers flock to Bamburgh, where the Bamburgh Castle Golf Club offers a particularly picturesque setting. A few miles south bring you to the Historic Market Town of Alnwick, start your trip at the famous Alnwick Castle, one of the largest inhabited castles in the UK and used as Hogwarts when filming scenes for the Harry Potter films, with Harry Potter related events organised here throughout the year as well as guided tours.

About the local area

The idyllic country village of Bamburgh, ancient royal seat of the kings of Northumbria, is set in one of the most breathtakingly picturesque coastal regions in the UK. With trips to the Farne Island Group so close at hand from nearby Seahouses, Bamburgh is certainly one of the most sough after coastal destinations on the Northumberland coast.

The main attraction in Bamburgh is of course Bamburgh Castle, one of Northumberland's most iconic buildings. Spanning nine acres of land on its rocky plateau high above the Northumberland coastline Bamburgh it is one of the largest inhabited castles in the country and has won awards in the North East Large Visitor Attraction Awards and the Green Business Scheme. To prove its universal appeal, the castle was recently a finalist in TV's Britain's Favorite View competition.

A visit to this area is not complete without a trip to Lindisfarne (Holy Island), a tidal island which can only be accessed across the causeway when the tidal conditions allow. Holy Island has a national reputation as a wildlife haven and is home to a national nature reserve. As well as numerous rare birds, you may even spot the grey seal that are resident on the nearby Farne Islands all year round.

Dramatically perched on a rocky crag is Lindisfarne Castle is a small fortress first built in 1550 and today is looked after by the National Trust. Accessible over the causeway is at low tide only, and the island castle presents an exciting and alluring aspect.
