“On the edge of Bamburgh, one of Northumberland’s most attractive coastal villages, this is a treat for both seafood-lovers and those seeking a country escape in a smart but simple, contemporary styled hotel. Rooms are light and comfortable, the restaurant deservedly popular.”

Hotel Overview

“Strolling distance from one of Northumberland’s most iconic sights - mighty Bamburgh Castle which towers above the sea atop a craggy outcrop - The Mizen Head was originally built as the comfortable Victorian home of the Castle’s estate manager. A hotel since the 1940s, it’s had a 21st-century makeover to turn it into a contemporary styled restaurant-with-rooms with lots of pale greys and sludgy tartans set against exposed stone walls and parquet flooring. This is very much a foodies’ haunt, with the emphasis on seafood. The daily changing menu uses only wild, not farmed, fish with a blackboard detailing their origins - turbot from North Shields, for example, or scallops from Eyemouth. The local Seahouses’ lobster thermidor is the signature dish. There's a good choice of wines by the glass, many hand-picked by the owners from small wineries.
The bedrooms - some in an adjoining, new-build, stone house which looks rather stark - are light and contemporary with bright tartans, modern oak furniture and leather, art-deco-style armchairs while modern bathrooms are slick in travertine tiling. Large, pleasant and comfortable, they’re designed more for practicality than for romance.

But most of the time you’ll be out and about exploring Northumberland’s castles, taking a trip over to Holy Island or simply wandering the coast’s glorious beaches - rarely crowded - and working up an appetite for dinner.”
