  • "House was amazing, second time at this property!"

    Everything you needed there and more! Comfortable, clean, plenty of car parking, dog friendly and only a few minutes walk to the beautiful dog friendly beach, what else can you ask for! Only 2 little niggles, shower in main bathroom slow and the 2 bedrooms could do with bigger mirrors! But these were only minor things! Loved the house, loved the Beadnell and loved the beach. Would highly recommend the house as already looking to book for next year!!

  • "It was a very comfortable place to stay and very convenient for the beach."

    I was impressed with how quickly a maintenance person came to fix a problem. The only thing we disliked was the fact there was no private space to sit or for our dogs to use. However, a comfortable place to spend a week in an area we love.

  • "Just some honest feedback really as there is a lot going for this property however I do think anyone who books this should be aware of some of the issues we had."

    The property is in a superb location just a 2 minute walk from a fantastic beach. The house is well decorated and looks as it does in the photos. All equipment worked and there were plenty of kitchen accessories and cutlery. Where the place let itself down for us was as follows. Firstly the upside down nature of the property doesn’t really add much to it as the view from the balcony only overlooks the bungalow opposite, the road around the estate and the caravan park. The house feels very ‘hollow’ and from downstairs you can hear every movement upstairs very loudly. So in terms of being child friendly if you’re putting little ones to sleep earlier downstairs it’s very noisy if people or pets are walking around upstairs. If you’re taking very young children be aware the stair gate provided isn’t fit for purpose and I hope the owner does something about this. We had to have the maintenance man out twice and on the second occasion it had collapsed on myself bruising my ankle. It simply isn’t the right size. Also as a pet friendly property you do have to bear in mind there is nowhere to let dogs out that is enclosed. I appreciate it does say that on the advert but definitely worth remembering. Final few points are that the beds are very low and soft and the curtains let huge amounts of light in, Wi-Fi is patchy downstairs in the bedrooms too. Also in terms of cleanliness we’d read a previous review about it being a little dirty in places and it was. It’s generally quite clean but all the nooks, crannies and under furniture was quite dirty in parts. I’m not trying to put a downer on this place and for the right type of party I’m sure it’s problems would be fairly insignificant but this isn’t a cheap stay and as a family of 6 with pets it had too many issues that I think people should be aware of. With a bit of attention it could be lovely but it just doesn’t quite reach the heights its price tag suggests it should.

  • "Bathrooms need to be deep cleaned."

    Water doesn't drain away in showers causing us to turn off showers while the water drained. Extractor fans need cleaning. We used the shelving in wardrobes and anything black came out dusty. Kitchen was clean but lacking in glasses. (No 4 the same) having said all that we had a fabulous break. Oh! The heating was too warm..The bills must be horrendous!

    The bathrooms are clean but in need of decorating which is booked in with a local decorator when he will do the whole property. The showers can be slow to drain when its a high tide -a coastal problem we are all aware of, don't worry they will drain. Extractor fan filters are changed regularly. There is another cupboard with glasses you may have missed. Glasses - counted as of 12 May, 6 pint glasses, 8 champagne, 10 hi ball, 6 tumblers, 6 wine, & 2 shot glasses. A further 8 tumblers, 8 champagne flutes, 3 pint glasses have been added as of 13 May. No idea of the glass situation in no.4 that is not my property. Yes you are right the upstairs lounge gets very warm because of the wall to ceiling glass, enjoy and open the glass doors if you need to. There is an off button on the heating. Pleased you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

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.
