Things To Do in Bamburgh

Start the holiday off on a healthy footing by rallying the troops for a walk into Bamburgh. It shouldn’t take more than an hour. Perhaps you can designate a driver so that everyone can pile in for the return journey when there are achy limbs all round after an active day on the beach.

The award-winning beach is only five minutes from the village and here is an opportunity to enrol your water babies for a surfing lesson. Kitesurfing Adventure Sports in nearby Beadnell have two-hour surf lessons on the beach at Bamburgh or in Beadnell, depending on which way the wind is blowing. It only costs £30 and includes a board and wet suit and booties. Adventure Northumberland offers a three-hour coasteering experience for the daredevils in your pack. It is a mixture of swimming, rock climbing, swimming and scrambling above and below sea level.

For the more sedate in the party, there is the option of an afternoon tea at the Victoria Hotel that comprises sandwiches, cakes and cups of tea in fine bone china for under £15 a head. The Lord Crewe Arms has a classic cocktail menu and if they have the ingredients on hand, the staff are happy to provide customised cocktails, even encouraging guests to show them how it is done. There is a delightful dog-friendly beer garden and there is a designated doggie area indoors too.

Golf courses are on every corner of this coastline and one of the more interesting and challenging is the championship links in the shadow of Dunstanburgh Castle. The course wraps around Embleton Bay and is half an hour’s drive down the coast from Bamburgh. Seahouses, three miles or a four-minute drive, has a great course too and if you want to include the whole family, then there is Crazy Golf at The Bunkers on the seafront with views out to Bamburgh Castle.

Last Word

Betony has a contemporary interior that is going to add a touch of luxury to your stay away. Park up, release the pipsqueaks and pooches, unpack and put your feet up on the patio and savour the fact that you and the crew are in for a treat. It’s not just about sun, sea and sand, because, for instance, Bamburgh’s open air screening of classics such as Grease and Dirty Dancing will keep everyone entertained when night falls. Rainy days won’t put a dampener on your fun either because the interior of Bamburgh Castle will keep everyone occupied for hours and a trip to Alnwick Castle, which provided the setting for the Harry Potter movies, will delight fans young and old.

Betony is only a few minutes drive from where it is all happening, yet it is secluded enough to provide a tranquil base for a holiday away with the children, four-legged ones included.
