Bolthole is a 2 bed (both en-suite) in the Crewe courtyard right smack bang in the middle of Bamburgh village. It’s gated and secure. There are three areas for sitting out, although was abit cold whilst we visited. It was just perfect for us. Its quiet. It’s immaculately clean. owners were around whilst we were there and it was great to hear how the cottages came into being, having once been part of the rear outbuilding at The Lord Crew Arms. We walked a lot most days. We ate at the ocean club and Lewis's fish and chips both in Seahouses. Excellent. The shops were all closed up as it was first week in January accept for Butchers and this is a must to visit and get yourself some Bamburgh Bangers - delicious.

Mrs P,

Our third visit to The Bolthole. Excellent location in Bamburgh, close to everything and yet it remains quiet. Added bonus, very comfortable beds !!

Previous Customer,

We have been to the Bolthole twice now, we know what to expect, beautiful well equipped cottage in perfect location.

Mrs C,

The Bolthole is in a wonderful location, only a few hundred yards from Bamburgh Castle, a magnificent sight when you step out of the cottage. This property is beautifully furnished with a very high standard of cleanliness; it also has the added bonus of secure, gated parking to the rear.

Mrs H,

The Bolthole was a lovely property, very clean, well-appointed and comfortable. The two outside areas meant that we could follow the sun round when sitting outside. In the centre of Bamburgh, it was in an excellent position for visiting the area as well as being close to restaurants and village shops.

Mrs A,

Wonderful accommodation, tucked away off the Main Street. With the beach, castle and restaurants all in walking distance it’s spot on!! Definitely be back!!

Mrs M,

lovely cottage, comfortable and clean, Kitchen was fully equipped for cooking in. Two lovely courtyards to sit out on, one having easy access to front street. Private secure car parking spaces was great as no need to worry about parking when had been out for the day. I would recommend a visit to Carters the butchers in Bamburgh beautiful.

Miss L,

Always found to be as stated on the website. Organisation perfect.

Mrs Denise W,

Our third visit to The Bolthole. Excellent that the high standards are being maintained.

JB and S,

It is our third time staying at The Bolthole. We love it more and more every time.

Becks and family,

Change of cottage for us this year and we have been amazed by The Bolthole. Wonderful cottage and loved the two courtyards for relaxing. Fantastic access to front street and the advantage of secure parking. We will return to The Bolthole for sure!

Fellows family,

Love these properties. Superb location and hi spec cottage. Stayed here several times and never want to go home.

Mrs D,

This was our second visit to The Bolthole, third coming up in October, so we’re obviously satisfied returning customers!! The location is perfect, close to local facilities (special mention to the Victoria Hotel) and the glorious beach, yet it’s very quiet. Two minor gripes….there’s no long mirror and nowhere to hang anything in the bathroom.

Previous Customer,

The Bolthole is a fantastic apartment with a great location. We have just re-booked for next year. The property is really clean and well maintained. Secure off street parking is a real plus.

Mr Daniel S,

The bolt hole was perfect in every way and we would highly recommended to anyone visiting this beautiful part of the world
