Holiday home Waren Mill's 16 apartments have been fitted and furnished to the highest standards, and Bay View has three bedrooms - two doubles (one with en-suite) and one twin. The bathroom and kitchen are extremely well-equipped and the open plan living room has attractive leather furniture. The apartment is on the first floor and has stunning views over to Lindisfarne. Bay View is a wonderful haven for those looking for a relaxing break in this beautiful part of Northumberland.
Area The magnificent Bamburgh Castle, set on a basalt crag, dominates this part of the Northumberland coastline and is one of the most popular destinations for visitors to the region. The Castle is home to the descendants of the esteemed Victorian industrialist Lord Armstrong, and is open from March to October. Bamburgh has other claims to fame, however, most particularly as the birthplace in 1815 of brave Grace Darling, who saved many lives from the wreck of the Forfarshire. The village has a very beautiful parish church, St Aidan's, as well as a number of pleasant pubs, restaurants and independent shops. The region is renowned for its golf courses, its wide sandy beaches and the spectacular Heritage Coast. There are opportunities for serious bird-watching at Budle Bay and the Farne Islands.
Region Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.

Everything to do with the apartment was so straightforward and easy.. The views are great. The location is great. Very good value for money. We were so impressed, we booked again for 6 months time even before we'd finished our holiday!
Mr Dando, September 2020
Great location, excellent apartment.. Brilliant value for money. Very helpful owners too. A lovely week.
A lovely apartment in a lovely location.. Sykes, as always, delivers.
Lovely spacious apartment,conveniently situated for touring the area.. Good selection of books,DVDs and games to keep you amused. Very generous welcome packs. All in all a very good choice for a relaxing break.
The location of Bay View was excellent as we wanted to walk along the Northumberland Coastal Path and we found it to be in close proximity to the coast and to Bamburgh Castle.. The accommodation was outstanding, clean and fully equipped with some special little touches that made us feel very welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
Bay View, again, was excellent.. The flat is clean, well appointed, light and airy. The new bedding is lovely, and has ended one of our few niggles with the property. The Internet connection/wifi is more stable and therefore better. I don't feel 2Mb is adequate when faster speeds are locally available however. This is a minor issue as the property is great, and we plan to return next year.
Beautiful location, really nice well decorated apartment, however it had not been cleaned properly before our arrival.. Firstly the floors felt sticky underfoot and our socks turned black. Bath had not been cleaned for a while and even had a used soap bar left behind which they should have noticed had the bathroom been cleaned properly between guests. The oven had baking trays with foil and bits of a previous guests cooking left in, again should have been checked. I could go on. We did overall enjoy our stay, although I'm not sure we would return. ***** Owner Response*****
Dear Mrs Mills
Thank you for your feedback. We have immediately raised these points with the cleaners and have received assurances that our very high standards will be maintained. We are sorry that you had issues and intend to monitor the situation closely.
This is a superb cottage in a great location for exploring the area.. Spacious and cosy with everything suppiled. Better than a hotel!
A great holiday in a perfect location.. The apartment is well equipped and the additional personal touches were very much appreciated. Would certainly stay there again - couldn't fault it at all - highly recommend it. Thank you.
This apartment is very spacious and extremely well equipped.. It is very well maintained and includes all of the little extras that really make a holiday. The location is perfect for exploring Northumberland, either walking or by car. We would recommend this property to anybody and hope to return in the future
We all had a wonderful holiday, the apartment was everything you said it was and great value for money.. The owners seemed to have thought of every detail and provided high quality fittings and what a location!
This was an excellent apartment - a true home from home! It was lovely and cosy on our arrival complete with very appreciated welcome pack containing not only the basics, but also luxury items too. Great location with lovely views and so, so clean. Would recommend this rental to all.
Beautiful apartment but as no mobile phone signal, does need at least a payphone in the property..
Fantastic apartment and so well equipped. Everything was well thought out and the extra touches were really beyond expectations.
This was the most well equipped holiday home we have ever stayed in and is in an excellent location with wonderful views across the bay.
Lovely accommodation in a beautiful part of the country. The was stunning scenery and beaches on the doorstep of the property.
Really comfortable and relaxing surroundings. The property felt like home and was particularly well-equipped with a terrific view.

Had a really good break from routine! The property and everything about it was really good and its location, for us as birdwatchers was perfect. It was a really relaxing and quiet place to stay, well thought out and spacious. The beds were really comfortable and the place was warm.
Position of the property was excellent with views over the bay and proximity to locations including Lindisfarne and coastal walks.
Lovely property, really enjoyed our time spent there.
Quiet location yet within reach of wonderful beaches for walks.
Very pleasant place, good for golf and castles with fresh fish and chips and sandy beaches.
Excellent accommodation with everything you need and more. An unexpected, lovely welcome pack greeted us on arrival at this spotless and beautiful apartment. A lovely walk around the bay enticed us from the front door, with many more a short drive away. If you like castles, there are plenty in the area and lots of golden sandy beaches. If you like bird-watching, you'll love the area.
This was our 2nd year at Bay View and it lived up to the first year. The building itself is lovely, it is a spacious property with room for everyone! The property is clean and well equipped. The welcome basket is a great gesture and much appreciated.
The apartment is fantastic. The decor is contemporary and just to our taste. The layout is perfect for our family (with 4 children, ranging from 1 to 10 years old) as they can all be occupied but within the sights of mum and dad. We hope to be returning many times as the area is so lovely and the apartment is so comfortable. Thank you.
Superb location. The welcome hamper was a very nice gesture. Everything in the apartment had been considered - lots of books, games, detailed local information about tourist visits and restaurants etc.
We would highly recommend this venue.
This was the most well equipped property we have stayed in it was a real home from home. Gorgeous views perfect location for main attractions and a wildlife haven in the back yard. Memorable first time visit to the Northumberland Coast and this property added to the joy. A very welcome 'welcome' basket of essentials and non essentials and lots of well thought out personal touches. Fantastic family break in such a beautiful part of the world that is yet unspoilt by tourist traps.
A well equipped apartment in a beautiful location provided all that we needed. It was quiet, had a nice outlook over Budle Bay, and had all that we needed to relax. It was also within easy distance of so many parts of Northumberland that are worth a visit by any holiday maker.
We loved the apartment, and loved being so close to Bamburgh, Seahouses, Alnwick and the Holy Islands.
Superb accommodation, very high standards in everything. Could not ask for more, the owners have provided a 1st class home away from home, and make their guests very welcome. The location of the property is ideal, quiet, peaceful, beautiful views and a perfect base to explore the delightful county and coastline. Loads to see and do, castles, gardens, beaches, good food and drink locally. An amazing place to explore and have a great holiday. Ideal for families or couples.
Superb accommodation, perfect location for visiting the many local attractions. A wonderfully relaxing family break. We will be back!

Mr Mrs Brown
Web site pictures didn't do the property justice, much better than we expected.
We all love the area of countryside around the property. There is lots to see and do within a reasonable distance from the apartment. The disabled access to the property is good, if required.
Superb countryside and coastline, Cornwall of the north but without all those people. Apartment excellent throughout. Excellent base for visiting the area. Overall everything was brilliant.

The area was outstanding and the beauty of The Bay View bay gave a great deal of pleasure.

Fantastic location on Budle Bay. It was very quiet and peaceful. The apartment was excellent and very well-equipped with everything one could possibly want.
I have two young children and this property was ideal with lots of space to run around inside and out. The appartment was equipped with everything you could ever need, just a shame we didn't know about that before we packed the car! Would definitely stay again if we were back in Bamburgh.
The owners have shown great attention to detail - they really have thought of everything! We've never been to a holiday home where so many things had been so carefully thought through from the holiday making point of view. This was hugely appreciated, thank you very much to them!
The standard of the apartment was extremely good and gave a great start to the holiday.
The location was first class and the property lived up to expectations. It made an ideal base to see the area and the view of Lindisfarne from the front room was something else.

A well-maintained, well-equipped, comfortable apartment, with lots of safe space for children. Completely sound-proofed from other apartments. Well situated for exploring Northumberland. We would certainly go again.
The apartment was in a very good and beautiful location. It was well stocked with guidebooks and leaflets to help us plan our time there.
My husband, on his first visit to Northumberland was overwhelmed by how peaceful it was.
One of the best properties I have ever stayed in - the location, comfort and views were superb.
Very high standard of property, and the location is just perfect.
Bay View was an excellent base for exploring Northumberland, and was certainly large enough to accommodate our party of five adults.

Great base for exploring Northumberland
Coastal location, good weather, comfortable furniture in a spacious apartment, and the Wyndings restaurant at the Lord Crewe Hotel. Waren Hill Hotel also good, and walkable.
The apartment is decorated & furnished to the highest standard, great thought has gone in what is provided.
The space within the flat gave the 5 of us (especially our 3 yr old and 2 yr old)the opportunity to spread out when indoors. We all enjoyed the view of the sea and the information pack was invaluable.
Fabulous apartment. Excellent facilities, very spacious. Able to reverse car upto back door for easy, level un-loading. Nice hallway downstairs to keep muddy shoes out of the way!
