Bamburgh Castle

The Hemmel, Burnfoot Holiday Cottages, Northumberland

(sleeps 6)

The Hemmel is a luxury self-catering holiday cottage on the edge of Northumberland National Park, near Alnwick, Cragside, Hadrian's Wall and Rothbury, as well as Bamburgh, Craster and Seahouses on Northumberland's Heritage Coast.

Created from Lord Armstrong’s original ’hemmel’, meaning 'cattle shed', The Hemmel no longer houses real cattle; however, this history has been kept alive with cattle portraits throughout. It has become the epitome of comfort, tranquillity and style for discerning guests seeking self-catering accommodation in Northumberland. This one-level holiday cottage, with a combined, spacious living / dining / kitchen area, is ideally suited for family gatherings, as well as for guests who require extra space for disability access.
