Nearby Points of Interest
• BAMBURGH CASTLE (0.5 miles from Pintail)
• Magnificent iconic 11th Century fortress standing on a rocky outcrop dominating the surrounding countryside and coastline. In a fantastic state of preservation and chosen by one celebrity as her favourite view for a tv programme. Here one can "stand in the footsteps of Kings".
• HOLY ISLAND (16 mi)
• LINDISFARNE. The cradle of early Christianity. Reached by a causeway which is covered by the tide twice a day (safe crossing times provided) to visit the Castle, which can be seen from miles around, and the Priory. Wonderful beaches on the less frequently visited North side of the island. Great for bird watchers year round but particularly in the winter and during migration.
• FARNE ISLANDS (4 mi)
• A paradise for bird watchers and a great day out for everyone. Seals and seabirds (including Puffins) abound depending upon the time of year. Featured in BBC Naturewatch. Scene of the famous rescue by Grace Darling following the wreck of the Forfarshire (museum in Bamburgh village). Boat trips leave from Seahouses.
• ALNWICK (17 mi)
• Said by one national newspaper to be the best place to live in England. The Castle is the home of the Duke of Northumberland and location for the filming of Harry Potter. The now world famous Alnwick Garden, brainchild of the Duchess of Northumberland, is not to be missed. Alnwick also boasts a well-supported local theatre, Music Festival and many other events.
• NORTHUMBERLAND NATIONAL PARK (20 mi)
• If a day away from the beaches appeals, the National Park covers some of the most wonderful scenery in the country with hundreds of miles of walking and cycling routes on country roads and off-road tracks. Keilder with its water sports, Ospreys, walks and cycling (track around the reservoir) is well within reach.
• BIRD WATCHING (0 mi)
• A bird watchers' paradise throughout the year. In winter Holy Island flats are a magnet for swants and geese while the coastline in general is often the first landfall for migrants from Scandinavia. The Farne Islands are famous for their breeding colonies of Terns, Shags and Puffins - look out for Roseate Terns! Eider Duck can be seen at almost any time of year. Go to Holy Island for Fulmars and Kittiwakes and in winter there is always the chance of a surprise such as Waxwings or Bluethroats

The area of Bamburgh is of amazing beauty and you would be hard pushed to find a more beautiful coastline in the region.

- Very Good
Fantastic apartment.. Very comfortable, spacious, warm and well furnished. Lots of lovely touches, wine and chocolates (thank you Judith!), but also lots of practical things such as good quality linen/bedding, thoughtful lighting, hand wash/cream at each sink, dishwasher tablets, tea towels, sharp knives and a working tin opener to name a few. I didn't have to get my usual self-catering supply bag out of the car!! We all agreed it was definitely home from home. Highly recommend the boat trip to the Farne Islands (Serenity Boat Trips) to see seals and puffins- magical! Bamburgh Castle, Lindisfarne and Barter Books in Alnwick all worth a look, but there were loads of other lovely attractions, villages, cafes and pubs. Castle Inn in Bamburgh very good with a good veggie choice. All in all a great short break and we would definitely stay at Pintail again!
Dear Judy, thanks for your fantastic review and I am so pleased that you had a great time and that you will consider coming back again. It is very much appreciated when guests take the time to leave a review so thanks once again until next time! Kind regards Judith
