This truly unique and most charming Grade II listed cottage stands in possibly the most idyllic and desirable location on the Northumberland coast. Set in a superb and secluded position on the cliff edge with a sandy cove below, it commands panoramic coastal views from every window. The majestic ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle can be seen in the north, whilst to the south there are distant views of Coquet Island. The coastline in this region is characterised by a mixture of rocky inlets and lovely sandy beaches with attractive walks along the cliff tops. A 14 mile coastal footpath between Beadnell and Alnmouth passes nearby providing the opportunity of walking through some of the most outstanding coastal scenery in the country, this part of the Heritage Coast is designated an "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" as well as being a "Site of Special Scientific Interest". The Coast and Castles cycle route passes nearby. The Bathing House is approached by a 400 metre private track and is ideal for a family holiday or for those seeking a secluded, romantic coastal location. It was built in the early 19th century by the 2nd Earl Grey who was the Prime Minister responsible for the passing of the Great Reform Bill of 1832 and whose monument stands at the top of Grey Street in Newcastle upon Tyne. He had 16 children and the house was built specifically for the family to go bathing. The design of the house includes a large upstairs sitting room (now the main bedroom) where Lady Grey used to sit and watch the children bathe, and where tea was served by the caretaker who lived below. The Bathing House is now owned by Howick Trustees Ltd, a charitable trust who also own Howick Hall. Craster is 2.5 miles north. Alnwick is 7 miles.

Saturday to Saturday only
Lovely as always. Thank you to the team.
It would have scored higher but a couple of the mattresses were extremely uncomfortable and I found out this was a known issue.
A truly wonderful holiday home.
Unique house. Stunning views
Accuracy of property details. Very good communication.
The Bathing House was just gorgeous. We had a wonderful week, and will be booking again.
Bathing house was absolutely amazing, everything you could possibly need was available in the property. Views were stunning. Enjoyed every minute of our stay. Hopefully will return in the future.
The master bed is very uncomfortable and really should be changed as soon as possible. Otherwise everything was very good.
This is a lovely property in an amazing location. Anna was very friendly and attentive when she came over. However, I feel, the correspondence from OC, imparts the information in a very emphatic manner which I found slightly off putting.
The kitchen does not seem adequately stocked for 6. There was only four of us and we struggled with finding dishes/pans that were large enough
Not impressed at having to leave by 9.00 Not impressed by a 250 security deposit, having visited this property 7 times before. Not impressed by availability for 2024 not accessible. Everything about the property is excellent
Beautiful old house. Perfect location. Some equipment needs updating eg hairdryer (although nit picking here!!) We completely loved our stay. Thank you
We loved the Bathing House. We’ve booked again for 2023. Would have been earlier If we could have.
Wonderful property - another fabulous week. Original cottages need to update the information and instructions they give on how to use and leave the property asap. Fortunately we met the caretaker who explained that we didn't need to black sack everything as we left or leave the dishwasher full. The investment in new beds & bedding at the Bathing House is fantastic and certainly makes a massive difference.
A unique property in a unique location , six adults shared this cottage easily and so did the dogs !
The Bathing House is a wonderful combination of outstanding location and top quality accommodation.
