Oat Grass Lodge
This exceptionally stylish lodge has a fresh contemporary feel, punctuated by imaginative detailing which celebrates life’s nature and wildlife.
Clean Scandinavian lines just two miles from Bamburgh
It will be an instant draw for those looking for a lovely escape in the very heart of this pristine stretch of Northumbrian coastline.
With its clean Scandinavian lines and sunny south facing aspect, it is a striking contrast to its dramatic setting on the site of a former whinstone quarry, just 2 miles from the heavenly sands of Bamburgh.
The open plan living space features a scheme of cool greys and calming blues along with vast contemporary feature windows, divided by a central fireplace with wood burner and a Smart flat-screen TV.
The kitchen is a modern Shaker design, complemented by lime-washed accents evocative of coastal driftwood, while large bi-folding doors allow the outside in, leading onto a sunny south-facing deck with barbecue and outside furniture.
The three double bedrooms (one en-suite) have a very on-trend vibe, including a whimsical Flamingo design, and a calming Koi in azure blue.
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.
Easter: 10% discount on all available dates between 12th April and 3rd May 2019.

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. You will also find a family run greengrocers in the walled garden which was once used to serve the Castle.
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.
