Area Beadnell is a pretty harbour village which is situated in a peaceful location beside Beadnell Bay - a stunning stretch of Northumberland's Heritage Coastline. Beadnell was once an important fishing village and a 'smugglers' place of safety. It is still a fishing village, and now visitors also flock to Beadnell for its picturesque harbour and soft sandy beaches. Beadnell offers local conveniences including a shop and two pubs which serve food. A supermarket and restaurants are on offer at Seahouses a little over a mile away, and from this popular seaside town you can also hop aboard a boat trip from the harbour to the spectacular Farne Islands for some wonderful bird watching opportunities. Bamburgh is close by, whilst the market town of Alnwick with its castle and gardens are also within easy reach of Beadnell.
Region Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.

The property was superbly situated very close to a beach and within easy driving distance of many attractions. The property was spacious and the family bedroom and lounge were particularly well decorated and furnished and also the main bathroom was well fitted.
The accommodation was first class and all the little extras were appreciated
Lovely spacious family room, and a great family kitchen, which made it hard to get up and go and relax in the lounge! Great central location in Beadnell, within walking distance of pubs, beach and restaurants. Had a lovely time.
A practical and comfortable place to stay, and a very good base to explore a delightful area.
We all thought the holiday was a great success and the Northumbrian Coast a plus. We would definitely use this accommodation again.
Good location with the beach only a short walk away and an excellent playground just around the corner. Nice breakfasting kitchen and comfortable beds. The toy box was a big plus with my children!
The accommodation was perfect for a family, well equipped and fantastic family bedroom. The toy box and books were a great finishing touch.
A lovely home from home flat in a fantastic location. There are beaches near by and pubs round the corner, what more do you need?
The holiday was perfect. The flat was warm and homely well equipped kitchen and a nice touch of milk, biscuits, tea and coffee on arrival). Have always loved Northumberland so the surrounding area was lovely and the people friendly and helpful, particularly the owners of the property.
Spacious and well appointed family house - garden ideal for young children and alfresco meals. Property next door to a superb, safe, children's playground. Well maintained and with imaginative modern equipment. A BIG plus for our grandsons.
Brilliant cottage with loads of room and a lovely coal fire. Very clean with very comfortable beds.
Great base for touring, lovely beach 10 minutes away, great accommodation.
Dog-friendly cottage with easy walk over field to beach. Very good value for money.
The size of the property is exceptional for the price and the situation.
We loved the open fire. 'Barter Books' second-hand book shop in Alnwick is amazing, it has loads of character, great atmosphere and dogs are welcome! It's a 'must-see' attraction whilst in the area.
Very clean. Beautiful beach - un-commercialised. House good for big group with lots of age ranges.
A lovely property - newly refurbished. Garden excellent for our 2 dogs.
Excellent location and property ideal for the dogs. House very comfortable. The Pantry does an excellent Sunday lunch.
This is our second time at the property and it has been very well upgraded. Lovely flat, close to the beautiful sandy beach, and many other places to visit are close by. We may come again, as it is one of our children's favorite places.
Beautiful un-crowded beaches, friendly people...great area for walking.
A good base, it made it easy to explore the Northumbria coastline without having to drive to many miles.
Well situated accommodation in easy reach of all tourist attractions in the area.
The property was very comfortable and well placed for touring the area. The local facilities such as shops, beach etc. were excellent.
Particularly good for a young family. We didn't need to travel far, as the beach was only 5 minutes walk, and it was only a short drive to other scenic coastal villages and attractions.
We just love Beadnell, the beach is fantastic with lots of lovely walks.
The area is beautiful, I will certainly be going back.
A lovely day spent at Alnwick Gardens and Lindis Farne.
A very enjoyable holiday - the location was ideally placed for touring the area and the nearby beach was excellent.
Our third holiday spent here and have provisionally booked for next year. It is convenient for two wonderful hotel pubs that serve excellent food. A good base for exploring Northumberland.
The holiday was excellent and the house is really good and spacious.
We had a very nice time and the village was nice and not far away from other places to walk to like Seahouses along the beach. The local pubs where close and the food was very good.
A great location, with shops and a pub close by. There are loads of things to do with the kids.
We had enough space for 4 children and 4 adults to stay for one week. We were close to the beach and to other touring areas and services in the region, and did not have to go by car to all activities. Beadnell was not very crowded even in the tourist season.

Excellent base, everything we needed, basic but comfortable surroundings.
We hope to book for 2005. An excellent property and excellent base with home comforts, the garden's a bonus! Sykes cottages are good value!
The cottage was on the whole very well equipped, clean and well furnished. Having a garden was nice also. Providing videos for guests was also a nice touch. Beadnell is a very nice place. Just very good all round.
Excellent accomadation.Good walking alround both coastal and inland. Some very good resturants in the area.
Location of the property - easy access to pub for food - walks for the dogs directly to the beach via footpath behind flat through fields and location for ease of getting to surrounding sites of interest.
The property was ideally situated for a family seaside holiday and a good base for exploring the many castles and attractions in Northumberland. We had excellent family days out at the Farm Centre near Morpeth and Alnwick Castle and Gardens. There was also an excellent fishing trip from Seahouses.
The property was spacious, clean and made good use of the appliances, the walk-in shower and the open fire. Value for money. Good location for beach. Plenty of room for the whole family. I would come back to this ground floor flat and recommend to family and friends. Really relaxing holiday!!! Beats Spain if you have nice weather which it was.
The garden, the location, the spacious lounge, dog friendly and child friendly, peaceful, not far to the beach, good amenities(including good food) nearby.
Excellent base - pubs are v. close.If you only visit one castle in the area (very unlikely as there are so many!) make it Chillingham!
Excellent location for visiting the coastal area. 2 nice pubs within walking distance.
The cottage was immaculate. The beds were very comfortable. The whole cottage was well equiped which made our stay like home from home
good location nice flat pity about noise from upstairs would not return due to this problem.
