“Perfect location, great apartment”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Great location in lovely Bamburgh, with its own parking space which was an added bonus. Although above a the Lobster Pot restaurant (excellent, well worth a visit) the apartment was very quiet. Very well laid out, plenty of room for 4. It was very clean, well equipped and tastefully furnished/decorated.
Bamburgh itself is very pretty, set on a beautiful long and sandy beach, and the castle is one to visit. The village is well placed, in between Alnwick and Berwick, so travel times are kept to a minimum.

“Beautiful apartment but - Do not book through trip advisor!!!”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

As the title says this apartment is lovely however it cost £85.00 extra to book through trip advisor rather than booking direct, this is a booking fee from trip advisor!!
The decor of the apartment is lovely, and is equipped with everything you could need for a family or couples holiday. Right in centre of Bamburgh you are 5 minutes from a lovely sandy beach. Also a creating jumping of point for other places such as Alnwick and Lindisfarne. Would recommend!!

Hi Katy, so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Bolthole, thank you for your kind review we'd love to welcome you back anytime. Unfortunately Trip Advisor do charge both owners and guests a fee, however we do not inflate our prices during the school holidays and charge a flat rate all year round. Following our introductory direct booking price for 2016, from 2017 prices via Trip Advisor and booking direct will be the same.

“Gorgeous!!”

Had a fantastic couple of nights celebrating our anniversary in this gorgeous apartment. Spotless, very well equipped, lovely decor and furnishings. I would say it was a home from home but that would be doing it an injustice!
The location is brilliant too, right in the centre of Bamburgh. We stayed just as a couple but plenty of space to bring the kids next time. Can't wait to return.

Stayed at the Bamburgh Bolthole for a long weekend and it was perfect. Location the best for exploring the surrounding area, walk to the beach and bars. Apartment was spotless and really cosy. Everything that you could need was provided. Loved it.

Stayed here last weekend for 3 nights. It is new and tastefully decorated. The apartment is well equipped with parking and in an ideal location write above the potted lobster resteraunt and over the road to the victoria hotel/pub. There is a local shop, few more bars and of course the amazing northumbria coast just down the street behind the awesome castle.
Would recommend and stay again.

“Fantastic place in fantastic location.”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed for a long weekend in beautiful Bamburgh. The place was decorated lovely and was perfect for my young family. Everything needed in the place was supplied and kitchen/dining area/livingroom was very comfortable. Kids didn't want to leave. What is NOT to like about being; a) across from a lovely pub/hotel for a quiet drink/meal, b) around the corner from the BEST butchers I have been too, c) a stones throw from the best café (which sells amazing ice cream) and the village green and play park, d) a 2 minute walk from the castle/beach/and not forgetting sand dunes which the girls just loved exploring. Tie in with that, the amazing sunsets and sunrises you can experience about the North East(if not UK). Hopefully be back soon.
