About Sheena Harrison

We are a family with teenage children who visit with our extended family of all ages. We are culture seekers, lovers of the outdoors and enjoy good food to buy and to be served to us.

Sheena Harrison purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Sheena Harrison chose Northumberland Coast

Having visited this area for over 20 years we have finally put our roots down in this lovely cottage. We chose this particular property for its proximity to the beach, Bamburgh and Seahouses. When we visit we rarely travel very far and instead enjoy everything that this quaint and historic area has to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is well equipped, spacious and comfortable. It provides us with a break from our normal hectic lifestyle and a haven away from all our usual cares. The cottage and area is loved by all our family and friends from mothers in their eighties and youngsters who still revel in the waves and shell collecting on the beach. Please note we do not accept pets at Bayside.

The real benefits of this cottage are its proximity to such unspoiled beaches, the short walk down to the beach and the ever changing scenery of the Bay.

The cottage is well proportioned and we like to think it feels like a home rather than just a holiday let.

Sea fishing is available at several nearby locations. Organised sea fishing boats leave Seahouses harbour everyday in season. Bird watchers will find much to occupy them both in nearby Budle bay and the Farne Islands with their famous puffin and seal colonies. The most adventurous can learn to kite surf and costeering is also available nearby.

Coast/Beach:

North Northumberland beaches are famous for their vast expanses of golden sand with rugged castles framed in the landscape. Bayside cottage is just a 500metre walk to the beach that edges Budle Bay and as the tide advances and retreats this area becomes an incredible beach playground. A short drive will bring you to the sandy beaches of Bamburgh village and Seahouses. For a memorable cliff top walk drive to Craster (10 miles) and head towards the haunting ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle (NT/EH)

The cottage is situated just three miles from the A1. A car is highly recommended to enjoy this area with car hire available in Newcastle, Alnwick and Berwick upon Tweed. Closest airport is Newcastle International (50 miles), North Shields ferry terminal (50 miles). Local train stations include Berwick (20 miles) and Alnmouth (16 miles)

Famous for Alnwick Castle and Gardens plus Barter Books. It also offers a good range of shops, supermarkets, leisure centre with pool and other regular activities.

Further Details:

North Northumberland is a hidden gem. History lovers can immerse themselves in castles and stories of old England, Boarder Reivers and the Romans. Garden lovers can explore the extensive estate at Cragside (NT), the fantastic Alnwick Gardens or the more quaint Chillingham Castle. Families are able to enjoy a different beach everyday or pick and chose from the many family themed events that take place at local attractions throughout the main season and into the Christmas period. Walkers can venture into the Northumberland National Park and enjoy the landscapes of the Cheviots. The towns of Seahouses, Alnwick and Berwick will provide all of the more modern conveniences that may be required on your visit but really you are most likely to revel in the relaxed atmosphere that Budle Bay and Bamburgh offer. Several excellent pubs and restaurants are on the doorstep offering good quality and reasonably priced food and drink.

Great cottage and location.

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, well equipped cottage in an excellent location for exploring. We have been to the area many times and this is the best place we have stayed. Nice to be able to walk to the sandy budle beach from the house. Couldn't ask for more.

Owner's Response: Lovely to hear you enjoyed the cottage so much. We all love walking on that beach too and the panoramic views change so much with the tides. I hope we can welcome you back to stay in the future.

Super cottage both by location and comfort

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week here, greatly helped by Sheena and Alison's helpful suggestions and caring approach. Our family of 5 (including 3 teenagers) had everything we needed and more. Every time we thought of something, a picnic blanket, a particular kitchen utensil, whatever it was, the cottage had it. And it was comfortable and cozy too. The location is brilliant and lends itself to lots of scenic walks and activities. Our favourites were: the walk to Bamburgh Castle and visiting the castle (twice, as we went to a fab evening performance of Midsummer Night's Dream by HandleBards), a walk around Lindisfarne, a boat trip to the Farne Islands from Seahouses, walk from Craster (delicious smoked kippers) to Dunstanburgh (a spectacular ruin), Alnwick Castle (allow plenty of time as the interior is stunning, there are lots of activities for children and we ran out of time to do the lovely looking garden), Barter Books in Alnwick (booklovers' heaven), the view from Cos castle (OS map needed to find this as it's only a few ancient stones but it's near Chilliingham Park) of 7 other castles and a haze of purple heather and lots of lovely pub meals (favourite and most expensive the Potted Lobster in Bamburgh!). Our only regret was that we missed the puffins - we'll be back to see them in the late spring/early summer when 80,000 are visible on and around the Farne Islands (a twitcher's paradise!).

Owner's Response: I'm not entirely sure how you managed to fit all of that into one week but delighted you managed to see and do so much. We'd certainly love to have you back for puffin watch!

A fantastic cottage close to Bamburgh and the wonderful Northumberland coast.

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a long weekend in this charming cottage.

We were a group of 6 adults. There was plenty of space for us all.

The cottage is beautifully decorated to a high specification and everything you could need for your stay. (The kitchen is especially well equipped)

The setting is very picturesque as you are only yards away from Budle Bay. A walk to Bamburgh is possible along the beach and back a coastal path through the golf course.

I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to anyone.

Warm cosy cottage for 1/2 term break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bayside Cottage for the February half term break. The cottage was very warm, welcoming and cosy. It was very clean, towels etc were provided and the quality of the fixture and fittings was very high. We did not have the best weather but it is only a short walk down to the beach at Budle Bay and we enjoyed some bracing coastal walks along beautiful sandy beaches. Be warned that many of the tourist attractions at this time of year are closed inc Alnwick Castle. However, we were able to explore Holy Island, Bamburgh Castle, Dunstanburgh Castle so we weren't short of great things to do. Would recommend the Potted Lobster in Bamburgh for dinner!! Big thumbs up for Bayside Cottage!!

Wonderful holiday. A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family have visited this part of the wonderful Northumbria coastline for many years and our stay at Bayside Cottage provided us with the best acommodation we've had. The cottage is lovely. Extremely well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. The rooms are warm and comfortable and a delight to come home to after a bracing October walk along the beautiful coastline. There is a lovely view of the bay from the back garden which is the perfect place to sit and unwind with mug of coffee or glass of wine in hand. And so much to do in the surrounding area. We particularly enjoyed the beach at Bamburgh with its enormous sand dunes and the fish and chips in Seahouses. So many interesting places are within easy reach including the spooky Chillingham Castle with its wild white cattle. We also enjoyed the boat trips from Seahouses and our day at Cragside where we picnicked in the beautiful gardens. Hope to return soon to continue the adventure and to enjoy the comfort and luxury of Bayside Cottage.
