Bamburgh is a sleepy little village but with some good pubs, a number of places of interest in easy reach, within walking distance of Bamburgh beach, and of course with the impressive Bamburgh Castle towering above. There is self-catering accommodation of a good standard on The Wynding, as well as rooms at the pubs and one or two B&Bs. Definitely a place that warrants at least a weekend away if you've never been before!   - Paul
