    • “We can't recommend the Old Byre highly enough. The house was beautifully decorated throughout, spotlessly clean and it had everything you would ever need, a real home from home. It was ideally situated to visit the lovely Northumbria coastline and villages. It was approx 15 mins from Alnwick, Bamburgh and beaches. We will definitely go back.”

    • “Old Byre is an absolutely fantastic little place. Comfortable, cosy, clean and everything was provided. Amazing facilities and a great little sun trap for a cup of tea in the morning. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly whenever we needed anything and it is in a great location, couldn't recommend it more.”

    Mr White, Edinburgh, October 2015

    • “An absolutely beautiful cottage in a gorgeous location. A real home away from home with excellent facilities. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone, it was absolutely superb.”

    Mrs Dilnot, Dewsbury, August 2015

    • “This is an excellent holiday house. It was comfortable, spotlessly clean and attractive. The house itself and the fixtures and fittings are of a high standard. The outside sitting area was very pleasant. It is in a quiet spot, with some nice walks around it but handy for the A1. We would strongly recommend it.”

    Mrs Small, York, July 2015

    • “The excellent position of this property in relation to the Northumberland coast access. The accommodation was fantastic in every respect - the best we have stayed in. The short walk to the local wind farm (no noise, very quiet) allowed us to view the whole of this coastline.”

    Mr Miziolek, Harlow, March 2015

    Mr Thompson, Milton Keynes, August 2014

    • “The cottage was home from home! There were 2 adults, a toddler and a baby in our party and, although the cottage wasn't advertised as 'child-friendly', the layout, cleanliness, organisation, functionality and equipment within the cottage meant it made our stay unexpectedly easy! I would definitely recommend this cottage to family and friends.”

    Mr Rackham, Manchester, July 2014

About the location


Beadnell 8 miles; Seahouses 8 miles; Alnwick 10 miles.

Wandylaw is a small rural hamlet comprised of a farm house and a few steadings. It is sited only eight miles from the attractive and peaceful Beadnell Bay, which lies on one of the most beautiful stretches of Northumberland's magnificent Heritage Coast. Once a smugglers’ haven, Beadnell is now a fishing village, popular with holidaymakers who come to enjoy its pretty harbour. Wandylaw is central to all rural and coastal North Northumberland and within easy driving distance of the nearby glorious sandy beaches between Seahouses (where boat rides can be booked for the spectacular Farne Islands) and Bamburgh, Alnmouth, Holy Island and the Scottish Borders, there is plenty to see and do.
