Things To Do in Bamburgh

The Copper Kettle is the castle’s shadow, a quaint stone tearoom that offers no less than 25 types of tea from Rooibos to Beetroot. The Kettle’s Ploughman’s Platter and vegetarian Panhaggerty Pie are always in high demand. Set aside a day to explore the 1,400-year-old castle that is still inhabited to this day. Set a dizzying 150ft above the beach, its staterooms, king’s hall and keep, provide an insight into its fascinating past. Especially during summer, there are back-to-back events that include open-air cinema nights and war re-enactments. While you are there, treat yourself to a refreshing cuppa at the dog-friendly Clock Tower café.

Blow out the cobwebs and give the dogs a good run by doing the three-mile coastal walk to Seahouses or get there through fields and quiet country lanes along the St Oswald’s Way. Here you can board a dog-friendly boat or catamaran for a cruise around the Farne Islands, where nearly 100,000 puffins, razorbills and arctic terns, to name but a few, cram on the islands’ rocky outcrops. There are at least three tour operators, and all have a running commentary on this archipelago that lies nearly four miles out to sea.

An alternative way of experiencing this AONB coastline is a beach horseback ride past the castle, along Seahouses’ beach that overlooks the Farne Islands and on to Beadnell with views of the Dunstanburgh Castle. Slate Hall Riding Centre is open every day and welcomes beginners, novice and experienced riders. The centre is half a mile from Seahouses on South Lane and has plenty of parking.

Last Word

This well-presented cottage is ideal for two couples who won’t need to compromise on sleeping arrangements because both rooms have comfy king-sized beds. The kitchen has been thoughtfully equipped with everything from the necessary utensils to a washer/dryer, dishwasher and separate freezer. Dog owners won’t have to leave their beloved four-legged family members behind because this holiday home has an enclosed lawned area for them to frolic in and there are dog bowls and towels provided too.

Thanks to its central village location, you won’t have to walk far to stock up on provisions or sample a pint of local real ale at one of the two pubs or a refreshing pot of tea at either the Copper Kettle or the Clock Tower café in the grounds of Bamburgh Castle. For sun, sea and sand lovers, the award-winning beach is only a 10-minute walk and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne is under half an hour’s drive. Water sports abound on this scenic stretch of coastline; the fishing is good too, with cod, ling and mackerel catches, especially on the shore between Bamburgh and Seahouses.

Not too remote, yet away from the madding crowds, this is a holiday destination that combines country and coast to provide a myriad of choices of things to do in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
