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 now and are happy to help with any special requests

James Brett purchased this cottage in 1986

Why James Brett chose Northumberland Coast

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.

We visit Bamburgh every year and without doubt this is the best location for both the beach and village. We had great week in this cosy cottage. Made to feel very welcome with flowers and refreshments .......even our dog got some little treats.

Exceptionally high standard of accomodation. Kitchen appliances, furniture, towels and bedding all high specification. Everything we could possibly have needed was provided. Spent hours at the kitchen table looking at the castle and people watching. Fabulous walks along beach and countryside.Pretty village with enough shops and places to eat.ideal for a restful holiday or as a base for exploring Northumberland and the borders.

Beautiful Bamburgh Base!

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal place to enjoy Bamburgh. It has a great view of the castle and is only a short walk past a charming playground and green to the sand dunes and glorious beaches. The house cannot be faulted. When you care it shows and it's obvious here. There is everything you need and more. The Bamburgh locals are so kind and helpful and we have already booked to return next year. I cannot wait.

Great relaxing family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfectly equipped with board games, books and beach stuff so your activity choices are all catered for. The cottage is finished to a very high standard and the fire makes the lounge very warm and cozy. With a short walk to the beach, pub and shops what more could you ask for. My 6 year old particularly loved the view of the park from the bedroom window so she could see if her favourite swing was free before venturing out (and we loved the castle - lit up at night - very romantic!) We would love to return.

Our best family holiday EVER

  • 5 of 5

We are not long back from our truly wonderful Northumbrian holiday, definitely in contention for our best family holiday EVER!

Boundary Cottage was just perfect, cosy and traditional yet well equipped. We especially loved the luxurious towels, the great and the comfy beds. And we just could not believe its amazing location. What other cottage would have such a view from the kitchen table?

Absolutely stunning.

Our 6 year old made full use of the nearby playground, and our 11 year old and I hired the tennis court one evening. We played lots of football on the recreation ground, and also really enjoyed watching the cricket and the triathalons that were happening the weekend that we arrived. And how amazing to have that fantastic (uncrowded) beach

5 minutes' walk away from our door!

The location of Boundary Cotage was outstanding. We did the Farne Islands, Dustanburgh and Alnwick castles and Lindisfarne, and had a couple of good potters round Seahouses and Bamburgh itself (a beautiful, friendly village with a good deli and a great butcher) in addition to a LOT of time on the beach. Holiday rounded off with a trip to nearby Hadrian's Wall.

We will definitely return to Boundary Cottage when we can. The owner was unfailingly friendly and helpful during all our telephone discussions around the booking, and when we arrived at the cottage we found that a tea tray and fresh flowers had been set out to welcome us, a lovely unexpected surprise.

This holiday was an extra break to keep us going till our main holiday in Cornwall... Cornwall has now got a lot to live up to!

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.
