Greenleaf, Northumberland Review

The Greenleaf is a self catering house in Bamburgh, Northumberland. Now before I continue I would like to say that we paid for this accommodation ourselves and we thought it would be useful for our readers to write up a review of it. You can tell as soon as you step foot in the Greenleaf that the owners take pride in their properties (they have 3 self catering properties in the area) and we will definitely be staying again.

Greenleaf in Northumberland Review

The Greenleaf is situated in the centre of town. You are only a short walk away from the beach and the village shops. Once you are on the main street you can see the magnificent Bamburgh Castle. 

Outside there is a private car park space with more than enough space for a trailer too. There is also a small garden with a lawn area and patio with access to a shared laundry room. 

Inside there is a gorgeous kitchen, WC, living/dining room. While upstairs you will find a massive bathroom with a bath and separate shower, and 2 bedrooms.

Great Features Include:

There are so many features that make the Greenleaf great for families and also great if you just have dogs!

  • Baby gates at the top and bottom of the stairs
  • Highchair
  • Toys and books in the livingroom
  • Travel Cot
  • Toilet seat and potty
  • Night light and more

The owners were great and they provide lots of cleaning products and a handy welcome hamper. We enjoyed eating the shortbread! There was also wine  but we don’t drink, so we never got round to drinking it.

The Bad?

If we are brutely honest then there really isn’t anything we can think of. The only thing we can think of which would make the Greenleaf even better would be bed guards for young children. Bed guards are pretty bulky to bring with us and our youngest is only 2 so needs a bed guard to stop him rolling out of bed. However, this is us nitpicking. 


We cannot recommend the Greenleaf enough for families or people with dog(s). The owners Philip and Sarah really don’t get enough credit given to them and we hope they have many more years of success. 

Disclaimer: We paid for our stay at the Greenleaf ourselves. Our opinions are 100% our own and honest.
