We’re a sucker for stone-built wow-pads – big abodes, built for long weekends and broods looking to celebrate the chillier evenings now that we’ve reached mid-autumn – and Wynding House is one of our best picks right now.
Just a short stroll from Bamburgh’s golden sands, it offers five cosy bedrooms and three large, luxey bathrooms to escape to – the ultimate in snug-but-spacious living. Find peace and quiet behind your own gated driveway and large wall-enclosed garden.
On the ground floor you’ll find the lounge, which boasts catch-your-breath views of Bamburgh’s castle and sparkling shores. There’s also a log fire, original wooden shutters, tons of seating, Freeview TV and DVDs, books and games to get stuck in to.
There’s an impressive kitchen, too, which benefits from toasty under-floor heating, a dishwasher, microwave and all the pots and pans you need. Park up at the breakfast area, which seats between six and eight people, for your morning fuel.
The first floor is home to a large family bathroom, decked out a free-standing bath and walk-in shower. You’ll also see a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a king-size bed, a second bedroom with another king-size bed and a dainty single room for solo sleepers. All boudoirs overlook the garden and also have raised views of Bamburgh Castle – what’s not to love?
Find a family room with two single beds and one king-size, along with another double room, on the second floor. Each room has been decorated in soothing, muted shades and furnished with luxury and comfort in mind. Think lavish linens and soft furnishings.
Another neat thing about the property? The owners of have provided all guests with corporate membership of The Ocean Club in nearby Seahouses (nominal entrance fee payable), meaning you can take advantage of the swimming pool, fitness suite and health and beauty services.
