Overview

Evocative of the natural beauty of Scandinavian design, this fantastic lodge forms part of a unique development within an oh-so-striking setting - built on the site of a former whinstone quarry, mid way between the stunning sands of Budle Bay and Bamburgh, one of the most popular beach destinations in England.

Just two miles from Bamburgh and miles of vast golden sands

With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, it will suit both families and couples alike, and with dogs welcome too, it really is tailor made for a perfect coastal getaway. A key feature of the lodge is its modernist cutting edge design, characterised by two vast glass windows in brushed powder grey, a perfect complement to the rugged surrounding landscape.

Inside, the look is wonderfully inviting, comprising a light filled open-plan living space with a fireplace dividing the sitting room space and kitchen/dining area. Three large sofas mean there’s plenty of relaxation room while a wood burner will add a certain cosy ambience on those cooler days when curling up with a good book feels like a good plan!

The smart kitchen with integrated units is well equipped with all the essentials while the dining area seats eight comfortably. Large bi-folding doors open up onto a south-facing deck giving plenty of dining options when the sun starts to shine.

There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, and one with full size double bunk beds which are ideal for children. This lodge also benefits from a bath for those who luxuriate in a good soak.

A short walk through the woodland will take you up to the quarry top with a viewing platform which offers incredible views towards Bamburgh Castle and the Farne Islands beyond.

The lodge benefits from a south-facing decked terrace to the rear with garden furniture and barbecue. Please note that the decked area is not enclosed but the south-facing aspect towards the quarry face offers a level of privacy. The wider site is a communal space.

Guests should note that a second phase of ten lodges is being developed on an adjoining site which is separated by a bank at the foot of the quarry. All heavy construction work is complete. This can be seen on the access road when entering Brada but is not visible from Mallow Lodge.

Parking

There is designated private parking for two vehicles to the front of the property.

Children & Babies

A travel cot and highchair can be provided on request.

Guests are permitted to walk to the top of the quarry where there is a viewing point, however it is important to note that this area is unfenced. Guests do so at their own risk and children will require careful supervision.

Dogs

Two dogs are permitted at a charge of £20 per dog but should be kept to the utility/boot room until clean and dry and for sleeping. They must be kept out of the bedrooms and off the furniture. The outside decked area is unfenced therefore dogs must be supervised and kept on leads.

Guest amenities

High quality linen and towels. A hairdryer is provided in the two double bedrooms. Guest toiletries are supplied.

Wi-Fi & Mobile Coverage

The lodge benefits from fast fibre broadband. Mobile reception is poor within the property but the signal improves outside. EE provides the best signal. A landline is provided for incoming and emergency calls.

Guest privacy

The lodge sits on a site in a development of twelve other properties, all in the same style and in private ownership. There is an adjacent development with a further ten lodges.

The lodge benefits from a south-facing decked terrace to the rear with garden furniture and barbecue. The wider site area is a communal space and as such, certain rules do apply.

Guests are permitted to walk to the top of the quarry where there is a viewing point, however it is important to note that this area is unfenced. Guests do so at their own risk and children will require careful supervision.

Location

With friendly local shops, quaint tea-rooms, cosy pubs and restaurants in nearby Bamburgh (2 miles) as well as miles upon miles of stunning white sands, it is part of the reason visitors return to this area year-after-year, and why it remains one of the most popular beach destinations in Northumberland.

For dining-out, you can enjoy fantastic seafood at The Potted Lobster or Mizen Head, or head to the Victoria Hotel if you like great pub food and convivial chat next to the fire. The Castle Hotel has a pretty beer garden, or for light bites, the Copper Kettle is a characterful little tea-room for lunches or afternoon tea.

For provisions, there is a super deli in Bamburgh selling meats, cheeses, preserves, freshly baked bread and smoked fish as well as lots of naughty puddings which come from renowned local suppliers across the area. There is a long established butchers selling the finest locally produced meat, as well as homemade pies and award winning bacon which is cured and smoked on the premises. The nearest Co-op supermarket can be found in nearby Seahouses.

Alternatively, a short drive will take you to the popular Barn at Beal with amazing views over the causeway to Holy Island, or a little further down coast to the Ship Inn at Low Newton (10.5 miles) which has a reputation for serving fine locally produced food (their crab sandwiches are legendary!) along with ales from their own micro-brewery.

Activities

The beach at Bamburgh is a wonderful spot for families, walkers and water sports enthusiasts. Surfing and windsurfing is highly rated here with waves naturally breaking to the left and right as a result of the numerous sandbars along its length, and while there is no lifeguard cover on this section, it is seen as a safe spot for swimming.

Alternatively, six miles south of Bamburgh, you will find excellent watersports on the golden sands of Beadnell Bay where you can launch boats, rent surfboards, wetsuits and bikes or try your hand at kitesurfing, windsurfing, sea canoeing and waterskiing with accredited instructors.

Sitting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within the Lindisfarne Nature Reserve, nature lovers, birdwatchers and photographers will be captivated by the vast variety of wildlife and birdlife at nearby Budle Bay. Holy Island is also a hot spot for vast numbers of migrant species, including the chance to see the odd grey seal bobbing inquisitively in the sea or basking on the sand flats while sightings of minke whales and white-beaked dolphins can also be spotted here in calm sea conditions.

No visit to this area should go by without a visit to the Farne Islands, and a recent accolade by Sir David Attenborough should leave you in doubt as to its credentials when he declared it his favourite place in the UK to capture nature at its very best. Charters from the harbour run every day from Seahouses (weather permitting) and you will be enthralled by the thousands of breeding sea-birds and seals taking up every square foot of this incredible rocky outcrop, including over 37,000 pairs of characterful Puffins.

Walking and cycling in this area is a delight with an abundance of trails and waymarked routes suitable for all ages and abilities. Take the four mile circular walk from Bamburgh to Budle Bay with your four-legged friend, where you can experience amazing sunsets over the bay, or for cyclists, there are family routes, leisure routes, and mountain biking trails with everything from easy coastal stretches to high energy treks.

The whole area is bursting with things to do, dotted by a trail of castles and fortifications interspersed with pretty seaside villages all the way up and down the coast. The skyline is dominated by the dramatic outline of Bamburgh Castle from miles around, and a visit will allow you to experience over two thousand years of fascinating history with dark tales of royal rebellion, turbulent battles, and stories of powerful legend and folklore.

Finally, cross the causeway to Holy Island to trace the legend of St. Cuthbert; head to Craster to sample their legendary oak smoked kippers; visit the beautiful gardens at Howick Hall; or head inland to experience the medieval splendour of Alnwick Castle with its fantastic child-friendly activity programme inspired by the wizardly magic and broomstick antics of Harry Potter.
