Budle Haugh Luxury Farmstay Holiday Cottage in Northumberland expertly caters for couples, children and pets. With the neighbouring Budle Falls, it forms part of the magical coastal smallholding that is Budle Bay Croft. A beautifully styled internal space, with both a private and enclosed garden as well as acres of the coastal smallholding estate to enjoy, this cottage will appeal to a couple, or equally to a family party, or 2 couples holidaying together.
Haugh (pronounced ‘Hoff’) is an Old English and Scots term referring to a low-lying meadow in a river valley, and Budle Haugh lies adjacent to the Waren Burn river with views towards the meadow, hence the name of this cottage. Guests can enjoy the sound of bubbling water while enjoying the view – including the swans, herons and the abundant river based wildlife. The river is fenced off and the cottage has a river side stone walled garden so it is safe for children.Read More
Budle Falls is also within the charming Budle Bay Croft. This traditional Northumberland stone cottage has been decorated in keeping with its surroundings with great taste and attention to detail. Vaulted ceilings characterise the interior with light and airy open-plan living accommodation. The master bedroom benefits from a feature king sized bed and the bunk bedded room will prove a hit with our younger visitors. Budle Falls gets its name from the feature waterfall at the rear of the cottage.
Within the historic 13th century hamlet of Waren Mill, Budle Falls is a restored hemmel that dates back even further to the 12th century. The building has been restored by local craftsmen, using traditional building methods and materials including random stone and Welsh slate, and it is within its original footings. The waterfall has been created from the original overflow wear of the neighbouring Water Mill, where the owners live. The Water Mill used to drive a wheel to grind corn before being transported by horse to the granary opposite, and then shipped worldwide from the busy port of Waren Mill. The waterfall, a real feature of the back garden, is turned on between certain times of the day and is illuminated at night. It is securely fenced so, parents, NO cause for concern!Read More
Location and Surrounding Area
This is a fabulous picturesque holiday location on the edge of the Parish of Bamburgh, with its towering castle and famous white sandy beaches, yet close to the shore at Budle Bay. Budle Bay Croft makes a great base for exploring the magnificent Northumberland coastline and countryside, close to walks and cycle routes. It lies only 2 miles from Bamburgh village itself with the iconic castle, many amenities and beach, and 2 miles from the historic coaching village of Belford inland. Close by is Holy Island, with one of the most important centres of early christianity in Anglo Saxon England, the Lindisfarne Priory. Budle Bay Croft’s luxury cottages also have the benefit, despite the rural location, of being within walking distance of the highly recommended restaurant in the Waren House Hotel (for adults without children).
