Pepperclose Cottage has a wonderful location in The Wynding, Bamburgh, Northumberland. For users of SatNavs, the postcode is NE69 7DB.

Bamburgh Beach offers a mile of uninterrupted sand and dunes between Budle Bay and Beadnell, with marvellous views of Bamburgh Castle. Northumberland has lots to offer the holidaymaker. There are more castles and fortified houses here than in any other county in Britain, a result of centuries of border warfare with the Scots. Besides Bamburgh Castle, these include Alnwick, Chillingham, Dunstanburgh, Lindisfarne, Norham and Warkworth.

The National Trust own three major properties in the area: Wallington Hall, Cragside and, a recent acquisition, Seaton Delaval Hall, possibly Vanburgh's greatest creation. English Heritage run a large number of diverse properties, including Lindisfarne Castle, Brinkburn Priory and Berwick-upon-Tweed Castle. We are very close to the Scottish border, where there are a host of magnificent properties to visit, among them Floors Castle, Manderstoun House and Mellerstain. For those interested in gardens, we have the world famous Alnwick Garden on our doorstep.

Hadrian's Wall, built by Emperor Hadrian in 122 AD, runs across England and there are many Roman forts open to the public. Vindolanda, Chesters and Housesteads are all worth a visit for those interested in the Roman period. Hadrian’s Wall is a World Heritage Site and draws visitors from all over the world.

The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is accessible by a tidal causeway to the north of Bamburgh. The tarmac causeway is totally immersed by the sea twice a day, the times changing with the tides.

The Farne Islands can be reached by a variety of boats from Seahouses. There, one can see one of the largest colonies of grey seals in United Kingdom waters. The puffins are very attractive in their spring plumage and are always a great favourite with children.

Whatever your interests, you can be assured that you will find many things to enjoy in this stunning county, staying in what is without doubt the premier coastal village on Northumberland's Heritage Coast.
