  • "A great dog friendly cottage with the best breach only 2 minutes from the door."

    Garden was completely enclosed and secure for the dog too. There was a lovely welcome pack and the owners have truly thought of everything. Highly recommended

  • "A perfect location for exploring the beautiful beach."

    Great terrace to enjoy the evening sun. A huge enclosed garden for dog and children to play in. We enjoyed the welcome pack and watching box sets in front of the fire in the evening. A perfect holiday, we would definitely book your home again!

    Good location ideal for the beach, excellent parking plus being a cul-de-sac exceptionally quiet The lower mark on facilities was the chefs knives, frying pan and a few other items need replacing because eating out at present is not an option although the two pubs have good protection protocols However the cottage was very clean (every room and cupboard) with good protection procedures in place Highly recommended

  • "The cottage was in a good location with everything you would need."

    Lovely furnishings we only had one problem the bed was too low to the floor in the double bedroom for us being in our 60’s we found it difficult to get in and out of bed. Everything else was perfect. Thank you for the generous welcome pack.

  • "No not water for 3 days"

    As we discussed on the phone the part for the repair was not available until the following day and was fixed as soon as possible. Please accept our sincere apologies but pleased to hear you had a good holiday otherwise. Property Owner

  • "Lovely holiday with the kids."

    Great cottage, excellent location. Very clean and lots of living space for when the weather was not as good outside. The pictures of the cottage show the garage but we don’t have access to this. With the garden being very open and visible I was a little uncomfortable leaving our bikes outside and on show all day whilst off day tripping or at the beach. The storage box on the decking was useful but not big enough for 4 bikes. A small shed or similar round the back of the property that guests could use would be an asset.

  • "We are just back from a great fortnight at two ducks cottage."

    We would return to the cottage but would like to see a few minor changes or additions, which are a full sized ironing board, a secure gate for the driveway (which we knew beforehand was not there) a DVD player and extra bedding for those staying more than 1 week. We had read previous reviews so had went with flypaper for the bathroom and an improvised gate for the driveway which both worked well. The bed was very comfortable although a little low for us. The cottage in general was very comfortable as was the garden furniture and the garden was ample for our dog to spend hours playing and relaxing in.

    The decking was perfect for early doors!

  • "Cottage in really good location."

    The welcome hamper was a lovely touch. The down side was the constant smell of bad drains in the bathroom along with lots of little flies. Cleared the bathroom windowsill at least once a day to get rid of the flies, but there were always lots more. Not nice at all. The cottage is in need of decorating also.

    Sorry to hear about the problem regarding the smell of drains. However the problem was not drains but a smell of damp from a leaking shower tray and the wood rotting underneath. This has now been fully rectified and we apologise for any inconvenience this caused and once again we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "The cottage had a smell (like drains) one of the cottages drains (outside kitchen/bathroom) was blocked."

    The smell eventually went away around mid week. The shower floor was sticky and we cleaned it twice as well as poured bleach down the drain, there was also a smell coming from the shower drain. The double bed was too low (I had a hip replacement last November) so found it difficult to get out of bed. The garden, although advertised as enclosed, wasn't secure, which is important when taking a dog. Overall, unfortunately we didnt think the cottage was worth the money we paid for it.

  • "I thought the cottage had a secure garden - it wasn't!"

    I may have read this wrong - but the fact there is garden but is not secure should be highlighted. When travelling with a dog this is a very important feature. For that reason we would not stay 2, Duck Cottage again.

    Thank you for your comments, we are sorry to hear you were unhappy with your stay at 2 Duck Cottage. Unfortunately the property is not marketed with a secure garden and a garden image is available to view. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay. Kind Regards, Sykes Cottages. Property Owner

Perfectly positioned for exploring Northumberland's Heritage coastline, this seaside bolthole is well-appointed for a holiday with the family.

The open-plan living room boasts a sleek, wooden floor sweeping across the interior, enhanced by the attractive woodburner adding a warm glow to the room.

Sit and relax on the plush, leather corner sofa and watch the world go by.

Prepare a hearty breakfast, picnic lunches and tasty evening meals in the kitchen; you have everything you need within a stylish layout!

The bedrooms are just off the hall comprising a double, a family room and a single; each served by the modern shower room.

During the summer months, the south-west facing veranda is ideal for lounging away your afternoons in the sun with a glass of wine and a good book.

Easy access to the bay can be gained using a dune path, ensuring safe arrival to the sandy shores.

A host of activities can be enjoyed at Beadnell Bay, including surfing, paddle boarding, coasteering and cycling.

Also within walking distance are two pubs serving food and local ales, along with two café/bistros.

Find an array of shops, a supermarket and restaurants at nearby Seahouses, a popular village offering boat trips from the harbour to the National Trust's Farne Islands.

Spot puffins and seals; each autumn hundreds of seal pups are born here!

Dunstanburgh Castle is also close by in Craster, with walking, wildlife watching and simply absorbing views of amazing stretches of coastline.

Follow the trail along the Craster to Low Newton coastal walk, pass the mighty ruins of the castle and enjoy the long sweep of Embleton Sands.

About the location


Seahouses 1.5 miles; Bamburgh 5 miles.

This attractive and peaceful harbour village is situated beside one of the most beautiful stretches of Northumberland’s Heritage Coastline - Beadnell Bay. Established in Saxon times, Beadnell was once an important fishing village and a smuggler's haven. Nowadays, it is still a fishing village, but is equally popular with holidaymakers who come to enjoy its pretty harbour and, of course, the nearby sandy beaches. The village has a shop, two pubs and a café serving food. Popular Seahouses is just over a mile away and has shops, a supermarket and restaurants, and it also offers boat trips from the harbour to the magnificent Farne Islands - a haven for bird watchers. Bamburgh is close by, whilst the market town of Alnwick with its Castle and Gardens, shops, pubs and restaurants is a short drive away.
