A spacious, very well-equipped holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with the attention to detail in this property - everything had been catered for. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, it has good Wi-Fi and even a Netflix account.

We visited with two children, aged 7 and 3. We were lucky with the weather, but if it had turned bad, the house is spacious enough to keep kids happy with plenty of games and books.

The location is ideal - just a very short walk to the beach, the harbour, the café and the pub. Beadnell is much quieter than neighbouring Seahouses, which suited us perfectly, but is only a short drive or 40 minute stroll. Bamburgh and Alnwick are both within short driving distances and are worth visiting.

Art Deco Delight

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this house from the moment I arrived after a long drive from West Sussex. My family had already arrived from Glasgow just before me. The house is gorgeous, well maintained and has the added benefit of being close to a lovely beach. We all enjoyed sitting on the balconies on both levels, taking in the views and feeling celebrity-like to the passers by!! We couldn't resist a royal wave!! The village of Beadnell is fantastic with good quality food on offer at the Craster, Beadnell Towers and The Salt Water Café/restaurant....yes we tried them all. Seahouses is very near and has everything you might need for everyday self catering. The house is very comfortable with all amenities on hand. It is very well equipped with high quality cookware and crockery! ( I would love to know where the owner purchased the leaf shaped glass entrée dishes)?? The owners had also left us a lovely welcome pack, including a bottle of champagne, thank you so much, lovely! My only thought on anything missing was stair gates for children, as we had a visit from my 18 month old nephew, who's only wish was to climb up and down the 3 flights of stairs for the entire visit!! Maybe something to include for any future stair climbing toddlers?? All in all it was a fantastic place to be and I would love to visit again. I love anything Art Deco, so it was a winner for me!! Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a comprehensive review and I am glad that you and your family had such a good holiday. The leaf-shaped plates were a gift from a friend so I cannot tell you where to buy them I am afraid! As to providing stair gates, we have thought long and hard about this and decided that stair gates can be a hazard in themselves for older/infirm people and that the safest thing is to close the heavy doors onto the two landings and allow children to play in the enormous enclosed living space on both the first and second floors. I hope to welcome you all back again one day!

Fantastic house, fantastic location, fantastic holiday !!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this as a central location for sightseeing at The Farne Islands, Alnwick and Bamburgh Castles, Beamish museum .....and a few other places in the area. The house is as good as it looks in the pictures - with all the ameneties you could want. We weren't disappointed ! - in fact one of the days the weather was rough and we didn't venture anywhere, but the house and beach were so nice it was great to stick around Beadnell. We had a smashing week - even though we had several seasons in the 7 days we were there. Can't recommend it enough - it's a lovely house in a lovely village. A week isn't long enough !!

Ideal property and location

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing holiday in a perfect location in a wonderful property. The Art Deco styling is carried right through the house the design of which affords great views over the Farne Islands. The house is also very well equipped for full occupancy. The finishing touches make it a very pleasant place to stay.

A wonderful holiday house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this lovely house. We are a family of 5. The house is beautiful, luxurious and in a fantastic location. The owner Helen has thought of everything in providing facilities, utensils and luxury items. The house is very clean with lovely flower arrangements throughout. There is a Jacuzzi bath, pool table, table football and plenty of games to play. We loved the luxurious welcome pack and toiletries. There were plenty of towels for us to use. The location is excellent. Views from the top deck balcony to the Farne Islands were wonderful. The house is close to the beach and there are 2 great pubs for food in the village; Beadnell Towers and Craster Arms. The location is great as you are between Alnwick/ Alnmouth and Seahouses/ Bamburgh which means that there is always plenty to see and do, if you can bear to leave the house. We would definitely recommend this property. We had a superb holiday and we hope to return for a 3rd visit. Thanks again Helen.

Special interest holidays:

The house is particularly suitable for large groups and families. The house is so close to the beach and rock pools that the whole week could be spent enjoying these! Its close proximity to Seahouses, Bamburgh Castle and Dunstanburgh Castle Golf Courses make it a marvellous place for golfers to stay. For those interested in birdwatching, walking and cycling the Northumberland Coast is simply perfect and a range of relevant literature is provided in the house. In addition, the information folder in the house gives our suggestions for some local walks.

Coast/Beach:

The Haven beach is directly across the green in front of the house and is a delightful sandy beach with rock pools which are great for catching little crabs and fish! Beadnell Bay has a magnificent 2 mile sweep of golden sands and dunes. The quiet beaches of Annstead Bay to the north of the house can be reached on foot within 10 minutes. Stunning Bamburgh beach and Castle are only 4 miles away. The entire coast is part of the Northumberland Coast AONB and has beautiful coastal scenery.

Travel:

The nearest airport, Newcastle International, is 40 miles south of Beadnell, while ferries from Amsterdam link North Shields, 45 miles south of the house, to the continent. Beadnell is easily accessible by public transport with main line trains from London stopping at Alnmouth (15 miles) or Berwick (20 miles) and local trains stopping at Chathill (3 miles). The village has regular bus services, which can be picked up directly outside the house, to Newcastle, Berwick, Alnwick and Seahouses.

Distances:

The nearest small town is Seahouses, about 2 miles away, a bustling seaside resort with a range of shops, restaurants and amusements. Boat trips run regularly from Seahouses harbour to the Farne Islands and to Holy Island in the summer. Alnwick, a larger market town, is only 20 minutes away by car and has a number of supermarkets and a much wider range of shops, as well as the famous Alnwick Castle and Gardens. Berwick, the Scottish Borders and the Cheviot Hills are all within 30 minutes drive.

Further Details:

This property has been rated '5 out of 5 - Great' by all 33 reviewers on Trip Advisor. Beadnell has a small shop, two very good pubs with excellent food (The Beadnell Towers and The Craster Arms), a cafe/bistro, a church and a well-equipped children's playground. Seahouses has a supermarket which stocks a range of organic and fairtrade items, a bank, a good range of pubs, fish and chip shops, two pizzerias, two Indian restaurants and Indian and Chinese take-aways as well as a number of gift shops and typical seaside amusements. The Seafield Ocean Club in Seahouses welcomes non-members to its Health and Beauty Suite for a range of relaxing massages and beauty treatments. Also, its licensed coffee shop serves delicious home-made cakes for that real holiday indulgence. To the North, Bamburgh with its magnificent castle and the Grace Darling Museum is only 5 miles away and the village has its own butcher's shop where you can buy the famous 'Bamburgh Banger', a greengrocer, a delicatessen and quaint coffee shops, pubs and restaurants. South of Beadnell is the huge sweep of Beadnell Bay with its golden sands stretching for over 2 miles. Wonderful for children and the young-at-heart. Part-way round the bay is the Long Nanny bird reserve with a large colony of nesting terns and plovers. Another mile or so brings you to the beautiful National Trust village of Low Newton with Newton Pool Nature Reserve and the famous 'Ship Inn'. Dunstanburgh Castle dominates the views further south, its atmospheric 14th century ruins adding character to an already dramatic coastline. The market town of Alnwick offers a much wider range of amenities including banks, a health centre, as well as supermarkets and a wide range of specialist shops and a market on Thursday and Saturday mornings. A farmers' market is held on the last Friday of every month. The famous Alnwick Castle, most recently renowned for its role in the Harry Potter films, and the award winning Alnwick Gardens offer a splendid day out.
