    We stayed here at Glororum a couple of years ago. Nothing much at the site itself, although good for cycling, and next time stayed at Wareham Farm (or something like that). It was ok but if you don't want the pool and bar etc, then it was a waste of time but I still loved Bamburgh and the Copper Kettle is great for a cream tea. Good stopping off point before Berwick upon Tweed.

    I think you might find that the two car parks along the Wynding now have overnight parking restrictions and height barriers :Sad:

    The two roadside pull ins are OK (at the moment), but the "Carparks" were fitted with the base posts for height barriers last summer - haven't been back, but the Guy from Bamburgh Castle stated that the barriers were toe installed. There was a longish thread on the subject last year - do a search for Bamburgh :Smile:

    What about the car park opposite the castle, last time I stayed , I just paid for 24 hr parking.
    Admit it was pay & display.
