Greetwell description

Greetwell is a lovely single-storey detached cottage situated in the picturesque coastal village of Beadnell. The accommodation enjoys a homely ambience and is tastefully furnished throughout.
Beadnell is a popular holiday destination and offers local facilities including family-friendly pubs serving good food and a local village shop all within easy walking distance from Greetwell. Access to a sandy bay speckled with rocky outcrops is close by and leads to a long sandy beach that stretches to Seahouses, 2 miles north. The wide expanse of golden sandy beach Beadnell Bay is renowned for is around a half mile away: a popular destination for watersports enthusiasts, including sailing, sea kayaking, wind surfing and scuba diving. Beadnell Bay can truly be described as the jewel in Northumberland’s seaside crown; idyllic for a romantic barefoot stroll in the sand to listen to the waves lap against the shoreline and inhale the invigorating sea air.

Two miles up the coastline is the traditional fishing port of Seahouses, where boat trips to the nearby Farne Islands (famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony) depart regularly from its harbour. Here there are several charming tea rooms, quaint pubs and shops with horse riding, fishing and golf on the links close by being only a sample of the many amenities available in this popular location. A further 3 miles up the coastline is the picturesque village of Bamburgh, which lies snuggled in the shadow of its majestic fortress and commands the power and presence of the seasoned television setting it regularly becomes. Holy Island, the birthplace of Christianity and site of Lindisfarne Castle, can be seen from the unspoilt golden, sandy beach. Just a few miles inland is the bustling market town of Alnwick, with its own dramatic castle, which was the film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy. Visitors will enjoy a trip to Alnwick Garden, a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden, including the Grand Cascade waterfall and restaurant within the largest tree house in Europe!

Greetwell is an excellent choice for those seeking homely accommodation giving easy access to explore the 20 miles of heritage coastline recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Beach 300 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 150 yards.
