"We stayed at Changing Tides as a group of 7 for a family Christmas."
3 couples and a 9 year old. The property had a fantastic amount of space. The upstairs lounge was a brilliant size with gorgeous views of the sea. The dining room and dining table were also really big and easily accommodated us all for Christmas dinner. Lots of lovely Christmas decorations. The house was lovely and clean. Very handy having the extra downstairs sitting room too. We also noticed that noise didn’t carry through the house which is really helpful with all the different bed times! Amazing location for walks on the stunning beach. Lovely welcome hamper left for us. This is definitely one of the best holiday cottages I’ve stayed in and I have stayed in a great deal over the years. Would very much recommend and would be happy to return.
"This is a beautiful house in a lovely position and is equipped to a very high standard."
It is a pleasure to stay there and we hope to return next year
Thank you for your kind feedback, we look forward to welcoming you back should you return! Property Owner

Well equiped large kitchen with plenty fridge space for our family group.Enjoyed sharing meals in large dining room. Very comfortable beds.We had everything we needed for a perfect family holiday. Thank you.
Thank you for your lovely feedback, we're glad you had a great time. Property Owner
"The property is in great location in Beadnell and the layout is perfect for larger groups."
The house is very well equipped with kitchen items and the welcome basket of tea, biscuits and local honey was a lovely touch. A couple of big downsides though, the house could do with a proper deep clean. The carpets are looking v tired and grubby and very stained in areas particularly near walls. I am not sure the owners used professional cleaners as we found some items were rusty (sieve) or unfit for purpose (cafetière) We wanted to use the hoover and when we found it the dust cylinder was full!! Not nice for a guest to see contents of dust and hair. Another thing that would put us off coming back were the 10 or so typed/laminated “DO NOT’ notices which are EVERYWHERE. It was like having a ever-present wagging finger in every room. “Please remove shoes before going upstairs” stuck on wall at bottom of stairs by another note saying “rinse sand off feet with outside tap before showering” “Please do not place anything on the fireplace as it may stain the natural stone” “ Ensure that all crockery and pans you have used are clean and ready for use by the next guests.” A note in boiler cupboard saying “do not touch the controls” (so you’d have no chance to boost the heating if you were cold). “ If you have used the outside clothes line return the pegs in the peg bag and the clothes basket to the cupboard in the utility room, and retract the line” “ If you have used the barbecue clean it ready for use again. Cleaning tools and materials for this are under the sink in the utility room.” “ Please do not lean on the washing machine door as it has needed to be repaired several times.” “ we hope that you get weather for a BBQ, but could we ask that you clean it after use.” I wouldn’t mind, but we had paid good money for this property (£2000 for seven nights) and being the owner of an Airbnb property myself. I know that you do not place the onus of cleaning on prior guests. More notices: “ PLEASE DO NOT CHARGE ANY ELECTRIC VEHICLES AT THIS PROPERTY” “ Can I please draw your attention to the work top - itis not granite but it does need protection from sharp knives and hot dishes and pans. PLEASE use chopping boards and trivets provided at all times.” Honestly it was endless. I’ve never seen anything so unwelcoming! I understand how precious houses are to owners and you should expect houses to be treated respectfully but it was completely OTT. The garden has a strange metal fence all round, like being in a container. We had a great week but I’d imagine there are more welcoming places to stay in Beadnell.
Thank you for your feedback. We always want to make our guests feel welcome so are happy to replace any items during your stay where we are told at the time. The notes around the house are there to advise, so that guests know about things and are able to leave them in a certain way so that following guests are able to enjoy the same experience. Over the past four years we have been updating the property and reinvesting to modernise all furniture and carpets. The downstairs carpets will be updated as part of the programme within the next few years. We do appreciate feedback so that we can continue to provide great holidays in a wonderful location.

"We are 3 couples holidaying for a week so need parking for 3 cars - Changing Tides provides ample."
The communal spaces are generous, smart and clean. The upstairs lounge has a wonderful view and is very relaxing. The bedrooms are of good size, 2 with en-suites; although the master bedroom en-suite is disappointedly small. However the family bathroom is a good size and there’s a bath and a further toilet on the ground floor. The back garden is also a good size, although the neighbours look out onto it from one window downstairs as originally it must have been 1 long dwelling, and later divided into 2 properties. Its location is ideal. It’s quiet but within walking distance of the well stocked village shop , The Landing ( a very friendly small drinking and eating establishment), and tiny village centre ( consisting of a pub, hotel and a church). Northumberland is a beautiful and largely untouched part of the world. I would certainly return to the area again and stay at Changing Tide. I was so sorry to leave it.
"Lovely house,beautiful view from living room, very well equipped we were lucky ..."
Lovely house,beautiful view from living room, very well equipped we were lucky enough with weather to be able to have a great barbecue hot water tap needed some attention
"What a fantastic visit we had to Beadnell, and all started with arrival to a really great property."
Nothing we wanted was missing, the upstairs lounge in particular was a brilliant place to sit and relax after a long day out. Beds very comfortable. We were a group celebrating 50 years from meeting at College, and would totally recommend the property to other groups or families.
Thank you for your feedback, how lovely to hear of your reunion and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
"A beautiful home in a gorgeous location."
Attention needed to kitchen mixer tap which drips hot water constantly. Quite costly probably. Eight happy guests. Thank you for the thoughtful welcoming basket of basic provisions.
Thank you for your message, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
"This is a wonderful property."
We had a great stay. Well equipped and very comfortable. I would agree with the other review about the bbq. I dont think its been used for a while however the outside furniture is great and so are the views. We will be back.
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and apologise that the BBQ was not up to the standard that should be expected, it has been replaced. The views are very special, so hopefully you will be back to see them again. Best wishes. Property Owner
"All the family loved cottage,great location very clean,and well equipped."
Only problem we found Barbacue,was not clean ,and there was no gas.
Thank you for your feedback about your stay, we appreciate you letting us know about the BBQ and can only apologise that it was found to be dirty. It has now been replaced with a new charcoal BBQ. Best wishes. Property Owner
"Had a wonderful stay with my sisters and nieces."
There was lots of room to spread out as well as a great sized table for meals and games. Have already booked for next year.
"Excellent property, clean, comfortable and spacious."
Well equipped with crockery, cutlery, pans and glass wear. Plenty of fridge and freezer space ( not alway the case in some holiday lets). Comfortable beds with good pillows. Plenty of good towels. Beadnell is a lovely place with a well stocked general store and 2 excellent pubs/ hotel serving very good food. Lots of beach walks in the area, sandy beach with water sports or bathing ( weather permitting). We will definitely return . Thank you

Ideal location for families with children. Very close to the beach,harbour for catching crabs

"A perfect comfortable property for a family holiday."
Amazing views from the upstairs lounge! A big thanks to Frank who was on hand to help with a couple of problems which cropped up during our stay. Would definitely recommend Changing Tide and the village of Beadnell. Stunning beach just round the corner and lovely walks nearby. Plenty of good places to eat both in Beadnell and surrounding area.
"A superb house in a great location."
The upstairs lounge had wonderful views to the sea. And the downstairs lounge provided a space to relax also. Good walks from the house , a short distance to a beautiful sandy beach. Good pub The Craister Arms and village shop. No down side to this property. We would have booked it again for next year but have already booked one with Sykes in a different area.
"We had a lovely stay in Changing Tide."
The upstairs lounge is a real bonus with it's views of the coast. Parking excellent and the place was spotlessly clean. Great base for coastal walking in the area. Thank you.
"Clean. Well equipped."
"We had a wonderful time at Changing Tides."
The accommodation is spacious with plenty of room to gather together at the large dining table, or find room for some quiet time. The accommodation is well equipped, and there was a lovely welcome pack with some local food. We are definitely planning on returning.
We’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for the lovely feedback. Property Owner
"We were told surveyor was coming to measure windows, but felt this could have been arranged on the change-over day."
"Thank you for your feedback. You were contacted and informed of this arrangement, and asked if this would be OK, however we never received a response from yourselves, so the visit went ahead. We do apologise if this inconvenienced your stay, and please do let us know in future if we or the owners can be of any assistance. Thank you again Property Owner

"Super property, well equipped, loved the modern styling and furniture."
Bedrooms and en-suites very comfortable. House lovely and warm when it was blowing a gale outside. A great spot for exploring the local area, with lots to do. All three couples agreed it was the beat holiday rental we have stayed in.
Thanks for your lovely comments, it certainly has been windy and cold of late so we’re glad you had a comfortable stay! Property Owner

"We had an absolutely wonderful stay here."
The house is beautifully furnished and decorated to a very high specification, really well equipped too. There is plenty of space to spread out and some really comfy places to be all-together!

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.
