BEST PLACE TO STAY
Bamburgh Castle's Neville Tower
Located in Northumberland Bamburgh Castle boasts one of the most stunning locations in Britain and it is a rare privilege to stay in this iconic castle. The new self-catering apartment in the Neville Tower gives guests spacious accommodation over three floors with far-reaching views to the north and south over Bamburgh Beach, the Farne Islands and Holy Island. It's a smart, contemporary holiday apartment with airy double bedrooms for four. You sleep here in the cradle of British history. The castle was a royal stronghold from the 400s, long before the Normans built a stone castle here. A survivor of repeated sieges, Bamburgh finally fell victim to new technology - the first castle to succumb to artillery when, in 1464, Richard, Earl of Warwick retook the fortress for the Yorkists in the Wars of the Roses after a 9-month siege. The apartment is named the Neville Tower in memory of this event and its victor, Warwick the Kingmaker.
