Castle Garth was inspired by County Life developers and their architects, who worked closely with English Heritage, conservation specialists and local planning authorities to achieve the sympathetic renovation and extension of this early 20th-century Arts and Crafts property.

The exterior's traditional style, with its steep-pitch clay tile roofs and leaded windows, belies the use of modern building techniques which have been utilised to create a comfortable, contemporary and well-equipped living space.

Meroo or Apartment 8 is located on the first floor and has a spacious open-plan feel. Entrance is into a large hall which flows freely through to the main living area. This ample space provides areas for relaxing, dining and cooking - and boasts a magnificent, elevated view of Bamburgh's historic castle through its double-glazed, full-length windows.

The sleek and stylish kitchen provides a very workable space, with its sociable U-shaped arrangement boasting plenty of storage as well as a breakfast bar and is fitted with attractive white units beneath contrasting black granite worktops. Appliances include a Neff double oven, an induction hob with a purifier above, an integrated Caple fridge, freezer and dishwasher.

The property has three bedrooms, including the master bedroom which opens off the main living area and has an en suite shower room. The second bedroom has an en suite bathroom and a separate door which allows access from the hall to serve bedroom three. Both bathrooms are finished to a very high standard with tiled walls, white sanitary ware and chrome towel warmers.

A large utilities cupboard housing the washing machine and hot water tank can be found in the hall opposite the front door. There is also a second storage cupboard for bed linen and towels.


Due to its stunning location and no restriction on lettings, the property currently provides holiday-rental income to the owner. However, it would equally make an ideal principal residence or second home.

The annual service charge for the property is between £1,500 and £2,000 pa. This covers the building's insurance, commercial cleaning of the communal areas and windows, as well any maintenance of the exterior, garden, walls and parking areas.

Castle Garth offers unparalleled views of Bamburgh Castle and the sea across the cricket pitch on Castle Green and sits in an enviable location in this prime coastal village.

The property is located just off the main street on The Wynding - an ancient lane which leads to the golf club and beach - and is neatly tucked away behind a traditional Northumbrian stone wall. Castle Garth is within easy walking distance of all the amenities that the village has to offer. These include some fine pubs and gastro restaurants, as well as an array of local shops. There is also direct access to some of north Northumberland's most picturesque beaches which make up part of this beautiful coastline - and, of course, the imposing views of Bamburgh's famous castle.

A wider range of facilities can be found in Belford 6.5 miles to the west, while easy access to the A1 trunk road puts the popular market towns of Alnwick (17.5 miles to the south) and Berwick upon Tweed (17 miles to the north) within reach. Both have regular Intercity rail services to Newcastle upon Tyne, Edinburgh and London King's Cross.

Entry to the property is via a keypad-operated, gated entrance into a secure courtyard. An entry phone system also controls the main gate from inside the apartment.

A block-paved drive leads to the allocated covered parking bays and is illuminated at night for the residents' benefit. Designated covered parking is available for one car and includes a useful storage cupboard. Each apartment also has the use of one visitor parking space.

The communal garden is laid mostly to lawns with herbaceous borders. The outside space can be used by all residents and is owned jointly by the Management Company, which is comprised of the eight freeholder residents. However, Meroo also has a dedicated barbecue area for al fresco dining during the summer months.
