Taste of Northumberland

Northumberland has great local food. Why not pop into one of our highly recommended shops to collect some local produce to start your Northumbrian experience?

If you prefer to have a delivery unpacked ready for your arrival, you can order local fresh produce through Food Heaven. They work with local businesses to bring local food and drink to your holiday cottage door.


Butcher,  Baker and Sausage Roll Maker

A Rick Stein Hero and traditional butcher, Robert Carter and Son of Bamburgh have been the village butcher for over 125 years and have won numerous awards for their home cured bacons and pork sausage, The Bamburgh Banger. Everything is delicious but you just can’t beat a hot sausage roll on the dunes – I promise you won’t have tasted sausage roll like it!

Taste of the Sea

Another Rick Stein Hero, The Swallow Fish Shop of Seahouses supplies freshly landed fish of the day. The locally caught crab, lobster and scallops take some beating – from sea to fork in hours!
