“Top place in Bamburgh”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Simply put, simply brilliant!
We were looking to book somewhere en route to our main holiday and stumbled across this site by accident. As we were only looking to book 5 nights rather than a full week we contacted the owners direct. They could not have been more helpful with dealing with our request. Whilst the pictures on the website are really good, the reality of seeing this apartment in person was first class. The furnishings and decoration are so tastefully done and it is equipped to a very good standard whilst the location (1 mile from Bamburgh itself) was so quiet and peaceful.
This is an ideal location to explore the fantastic local countryside and one that you will look forward to coming home to at the end of the day. Enjoy!

“Breakers is a wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Breakers was a wonderful base for a weeks holiday in Northumberland. The house was beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It had everything we wanted. The views from the windows were impressive and the location was ideal for walks. The beach was spectacular and visits inland including Alnwick Gardens and Craigside were really enjoyable. The local people were very welcoming and the owners were very friendly, generous and thoughtful to ensure we had a wonderful time. I have no hesitation in recommending Breakers and have already done so to family and friends.

“FANTASTIC”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We loved breakers, on first walking in it had a wow factor; spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. All maintained to a really high standard. We felt so comfortable, comfy sofa, lovely linen, fluffy towels, all those home from home comforts The 3 children loved it, lots of nice toys and films to watch when the weather wasn't so good and a nice enclosed garden. We asked about a cot and a high chair and brand new ones were provided for us.

The area is of outstanding beauty, the views from breakers are stunning, the accommodation looks directly on to the coast and Bamburg Castle and open countryside. Just a few minutes drive from the beach, ideal location for local exploring.

Can't recommend highly enough

“A stunning coastal retreat!”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had the most fantastic week staying at Breakers last week and only wish we could have stayed longer.

The location is perfect for accessing a number of the beautiful beaches in the area as well as exploring Bamburgh, Alnwick, Holy Island etc.

The luxury and attention to detail at Breakers is beyond fabulous and our toddler was kept entertained with the great selection of both toys and books available too.

The views across to Bamburgh Castle from one side of the house and the beautiful Northumberland countryside stretching for miles from the other side are truly spectacular and we were lucky enough to see some stunning sunsets on an evening too.

The layout and space at Breakers is perfect and it was a delight to return to the house each day. We loved spending our evenings there and being pregnant too, I felt completely relaxed and able to unwind whilst enjoying the views from the balcony.

We would recommend Breakers so highly to couples and families and would really love to return ourselves in 2017!

“A fabulous place”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Finished and furnished to a very high standard. A very welcoming feel as soon as you walk through the door. Very clean and flooded with natural light during the day. Spacious bedrooms with great storage facilities. Large bathroom with a fab shower. Hard to believe all the pIping hot water apparently comes from solar power. House got warm quickly by the sun but on a couple of cooler days warmed up swiftly when we turned a few radiators on. There is also a feature gas fire and I think this would be lovely and cosy for winter break. Well designed house with the bedrooms on the ground floor so the lounge/kitchen/diner above gets the glorious views. Nice garden too, with shelter when the wind blows, as it frequently does in this area! Great tv with hard disc full of films and tv series. Nice balcony with table and chairs for warm summer evenings and watching the sun set over the trees. View of famous castle from lounge windows. Short walk down quiet road to Bamburgh - just over a mile. Plenty of pubs and restaurants to choose from, a great butchers and a small shop for fresh food. It was blissfully quiet at night. There was a welcome tray on the table well stocked with teas, preserves, a box of chocolates and bottle of wine! Nice touch. The mugs were printed with the words 'I'd rather be in Bamburgh '. How I do agree! Looking forward to going back as soon as we can.

“Fabulous well-appointed cottage in great location”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Comfortable, very clean and stylish with everything provided to get our holiday off to an excellent start; thoughtful touches such as a copious supply of dishwasher tablets and other miscellaneous sundries that one really doesn't want to have to bring along were readily provided at Breakers, including welcome wine and choccies. We found the beds very comfortable and things like the bed linen and towels all good quality. The open plan living/kitchen/dining area was light and spacious. The driveway was also spacious with plenty of room to shut the gate and turn our car around. The grounds were immaculate and everything including neighbouring properties had the air of being well maintained and in good order. We found the location quiet and the views breakthtaking, whether looking east across to Bamburgh Castle whilst eating breakfast or looking west across to the Cheviots whilst sitting on the balcony. Ideally situated about one mile out of Bamburgh (which has lots of good eating places), with easy access to both coast and inland and a network of country lanes to drive or walk along. Being interested in history and archaeology there was no shortage of sites to visit and we also popped into Borders Gliding Club at Milfield and managed to fly in gliders over Wooler and the Cheviots. We would be very happy to stay at Breakers again, - it is probably one of the best if not the best cottage in the area and and thank the owners for making our holiday perfect.

“Absolutely First Class Cottage !”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

The cottage is modern, clean, spacious and has everything you will need for a fantastic break. While we were there it was great to be be able to have breakfast and on several occasions dinner on the balcony. It is a superb base to explore Bamburgh on foot, bike or in the car. We walked on beach from Bamburgh to Seahouses. I have to say I don't think I have ever seen such a clean unspoiled beach anywhere else in UK.
