Bamburgh Breaks – Willow Herb Lodge

Bamburgh Breaks is a great accommodation option close to Bamburgh village and its iconic castle.  Willow herb Lodge is situated in the basin of an old whinstone quarry. Willow Herb is part of Brada Lodges, a development of 22 luxury lodges nestling in this quiet sheltered spot.

The lodge is surrounded by growing fruit trees. The site has views of Bamburgh Castle and birds and wildlife are your neighbours all around Brada Quarry. It is a unique location and a great base for exploring the area. From the platform high up on the quarry the view of the countryside down to the coast is exceptional. It is probably the best view of Bamburgh castle I’ve seen.

Bamburgh Breaks – a luxury stay

Willow Herb lodge has a light and airy kitchen dining space, perfect for entertaining guests. Large bi-folding doors  lead out onto a private deck – an amazing spot to enjoy a glass of wine on a summer’s evening. A big open plan living area is complete with a woodburner and a gigantic smart TV. Ideal for cosy nights in! There 3 bedrooms (one en-suite) and a family bathroom. The lodge is so well insulated that it is extremely warm, it would need to be very much colder than it was when we were there to need to put the fire on!

Bamburgh Breaks – an outstanding castle

Bamburgh castle is a huge structure, spanning nine acres of land. High on its rocky plateau high above the Northumberland coastline, Bamburgh is one of the largest inhabited castles in the country.

Welcome to Willow Herb Lodge

Bamburgh’s written history begins in the times of the Anglo-Saxons with one chronicler citing Bamburgh as probably the most important place in all of England. But even before this there were people living here, there is archaeological evidence that there were people here as early as 10,000 BC.

Bamburgh Castle

Bamburgh castle has lots of interesting rooms and artefacts open to the public and a pretty good cafe too. You can walk along the battlements where the cannons are still in place. As you look out to sea, it is easy to imagine its former inhabitants repelling invasions in more turbulent times.

Bamburgh Breaks – where to eat

There are a number of options for eating out in the area. The village of Lucker just up from the quarry has the Apple pub and the Apple core pizzeria. In Bamburgh itself the Potted lobster is an upmarket sea food restaurant. I can certainly recommend St Aidan’s Bistro which is on the way to Sea houses but only open at the weekends. Gabrielle from Bamburgh breaks also recommended Purdy Lodge and Carnaby’s back towards the A1. Of course there are always plenty of fish and chip emporiums to choose from. It is the seaside after all!
