Bamburgh Named Best Village to Live IN UK

Bamburgh Village is named among the top 50 best places to live in the countryside, and proves it is a great place to rent one of our Bamburgh Holiday Cottages. Bamburgh made the list, which forms part of The Sunday Times Best Places to Live guide, published this weekend. The annual supplements combine data and statistics such as crime rates, house prices and school performance, with the local knowledge of writers to compile the definitive top 50 countryside locations. The beauty spots positive community spirit, good local shops and services, and access to attractive outdoor spaces were praised, while Bamburgh received the title of Britain’s best countryside place to live by the sea. The coastal village of Bamburgh is nestled below the historic and dramatic castle of the same name, and is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. With only about 300 residents, the community swells during summer months as tourists arrive, hoping to make the most of miles of unspoilt white sandy beaches.
