Lovely setting, fantastic views

5/5 Excellent

Can't imagine a better base to explore this stunning area
Immaculately clean, stylish and spacious (even more so than the pictures suggest) yet cosy apartment with unspoilt views across Budle Bay. Brilliantly equipped, everything we needed and more. A very generous and thoughtful welcome hamper and fridge essentials were provided. Very comfortable bed and complete silence gave us a wonderful night's sleep. Modern, stylish bathrooms with hot, powerful showers. We started every morning looking out over the bay with the provided telescope and binoculars - so much rich wildlife to see. Easy to find with plenty of stunning walks nearby. Just a short drive from the A1 with Lindisfarne and Bamburgh within easy access. Handy bus stop outside the apartment for getting up and down the nearby coast. Overall extremely high quality apartment... Cannot recommend highly enough. We hope to visit again very soon.

4/5 Good

Great location but needs more attention to detail
Lovely apartment with great views towards Holy Island. Just a few points that the owners need to be on top of. For example cleanliness could have been better and there were a few things that were broken and did not work. Did not really affect our enjoyment of the stay hence high score. Pointed out deficiencies to management and owners offered a discount on return visit. I think that the faults would be rectified soon.

5/5 Excellent

Fabulous views of Budle Bay from 3rd floor loft, tides, birds, sunrise, sunset. Fabulous modern apartment in 18th century historic building. Fabulous location to Holy Island, Bamburgh Castle, Bamburgh Beach, Farne Islands and many other must see places. Would definitely stay there again!

5/5 Excellent

Great place to stay
We really enjoyed our stay at Budle Bay. The apartment had great views, and had great facilities. Great location as we were a short drive to Bamburugh and also short drive to Holy Island. Wish we could have stay longer.
