Bamburgh Castle

Annabel Williamson, of GSC Grays, which is marketing the property, said: “Bamburgh Castle is steeped in hundreds of years of history and residents of these amazing apartments will not only be living within the walls of a working castle, but able to attend the many events hosted by the castle every year whilst they reside here.

“This is one of the largest apartments available within the castle and a personal favorite of mine, the interior is designed in the ‘Arts and Crafts’ style throughout, a new kitchen adds a modern touch, two large reception rooms make this a great place to entertain, but for me it’s about living in a place that has been a home for the Kings of Northumberland with hundreds of years of a rich and varied history.

“Bamburgh Castle still holds a lot of mystery and secrets, South Inner Ward is no different, the tenant will have access to a ‘secret room’ accessed along the turret walkway, it has been used for entertaining but is now a large storage space.

“With this property your home can literally be your castle.”

Bamburgh Castle has been used as a filming location for Hollywood blockbusters including Transformers and Elizabeth and home-grown UK television series including Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.

Whilst any occupant will need to adhere to a few restrictions in relation to the workings and safety of the castle, the perks far outweigh the limitations.

Anyone interested in renting the Bamburgh Castle apartment should contact Annabel Williamson at GSC Grays Alnwick branch.
