Interior Views of Bamburgh Hall Farm The Dining Room Interior of Bamburgh Hall Farm
HISTORY AND ACCOMMODATION

Bamburgh Hall is a 17th century farmhouse. It was once the home of Tom Forster, self styled General in the ill-fated Derwentwater Rebellion in 1715. After defeat at Preston and imprisonment in the Tower of London, he was helped to escape by his daughter, Dorothy. He is buried in the crypt of the church next door. It is likely that plans for the rebellion were made in the dining room of this house.


Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom (no shower) and tea and coffee making equipment. On the 1st floor we have 1 double and 1 twin room both with en suite bathrooms. A suite on the 2nd floor consists of 2 large attic rooms, 1 double and 1 twin, sharing a bathroom. Both the attic rooms have views of Bamburgh Castle.

Breakfasts are lavish with local bacon and sausages, our own eggs and home grown tomatoes and mushrooms when available. Vegetarian breakfasts and salmon kedgeree are available on request. The drawing room is reserved for guests, and we light the fire there when the evenings are cool. TV and CD's are available in that room. There are many books available throughout the house.



The Hall is a working farmhouse and our family home. No one minds if a bit of mud is brought in on walking boots - or sand from the beach. Barbara runs a small shop - The Birdhouse - where she hand paints china for sale. Bird food and bird boxes (made on the farm) are also available. If people are only used to conventional Bed and Breakfasts, they may find that Bamburgh Hall Farm is rather outside their usual experience - although the chickens and ducks do not enter the house they certainly sit on the back doorstep. So if this shocks you then stick to what you are used to!



Although we only do breakfasts, we are within a 5-minute walk of 5 places to eat in the village including 3 public houses. We can book for you - things get crowded in the summer season. And only one and a half miles away is the famous Budle Hall, where gourmet dinners can be arranged.
