About James Brett

Our family base is just 100 yards from the cottage and we can easily be contacted if needed. We have been letting the cottage for many years and are happy to help with any special requests.

James Brett purchased this cottage in 1986

Why James Brett chose Bamburgh

Central village location (2 minutes walk).

Very close to the beach (2 minute walk).

Spectacular views of Bamburgh Castle from the kitchen and the double bedroom.

What makes this cottage unique

Boundary Cottage is in a perfect location within easy walking distance of the beach and the village centre. It's a far cry from the typical holiday let and is equipped and furnished as if it were our main home. It is used largely by family and friends and has many home comforts and facilities such as full central heating, an open fire and a telephone landline (mobile signal provided by most network carriers is sporadic). Views of the castle are stunning.

Beautiful cottage and location

  • 4 of 5

We spent just under a week (late arrival due to snow!) at Boundary cottage. The cottage is immaculate and well equipped.

We had some difficulty in our travel arrangements due to the amount of snow (March 2018) and James kept in regular contact and made sure we knew which routes were the safest into the village.

The cottage is in a fantastic location, no need to cross any roads to get to the green and beach. Our daughter loved the playground and our dog thoroughly enjoyed running around on the beach.

Highly recommend!

This is a beautiful cottage, really warm and cosy for our New Year stay. It's really well equipped with everything you could wish for, right in the village and with fabulous views of the castle which is a minutes walk away, along with the fantastic beach.

A clean, well maintained and well equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was accurate, although we did not expect quite such a spectacular view of Bamburgh castle from the bedroom window! Lots of useful information on the property, where to eat, sightseeing ideas, maps and leaflets provided. All dealings with the owner were prompt, friendly but professional and helpful. We would certainly recommend to family and friends and hope to return ourselves.

Boundary Cottage occupies one of the most sought after locations in the village just below the castle near the centre of Bamburgh on the road which leads to the beach and the golf course. The cricket ground, which lies between the cottage and the castle, provides direct access to the magnificent sandy beach which is only 300 metres away. The double bedroom and the kitchen face south-east and have superb views of the castle. The cottage is ideally situated for families as there are no roads to cross to get to the beach. There is a block paved area to the back of the property (the original farmyard) from which a pedestrian gate gives access to a large grassed area known as ‘The Green’ which is also the cricket ground. It can be used for general recreation and is our extended garden! On the edge of ‘The Green’ nearest to the cottage are a children’s play area and an all weather tennis court. The tennis court can be hired through ‘The Victoria Hotel’ in the village for a small charge.

Other Activities: Bird watching, Alnwick Castle and Garden, Hadrian's Wall, Grace Darling Museum.

Golf: The stunning location has often seen Bamburgh Castle Golf Club quoted as one of the most scenic in Britain. Offering views of Lindisfarne, the Farne Islands, the Cheviots and of course Bamburgh Castle, the course is one of the truest links experiences to be had in England. The course is lined by gorse, heather, whinstone and rare fauna and has a unique series of opening holes with back to back par 3s followed by two excellent par 5s. While not the longest course, amounting to just over 5,600 yards, it is a demanding par 68 although there are birdie opportunities especially on the way home with three par 4s under 300 yards for you to savour.

With a friendly clubhouse serving good food, Bamburgh Castle is a perfect getaway for societies and casual visitors, testing golfers of every level.

Other fine courses in the area include Berwick upon Tweed (Goswick) and the West Links at North Berwick to the north and Alnmouth (Foxton) to the south.
