  • "A lovely comfortable property."

    The house is very close to Beadnell beach and about half an hours walk to the Craster Arms and the Salt Water Cafe. The property seemed fairly new and was very well furnished. It was probably of of the nicest places we've stayed in.

  • "Overall the property served our purpose very well."

    It was very clean and tidy, well presented and accurate to the published specifications. Our only problem was the internet connection which was very poor. But after calling Zoe and Glen about this, we had a visit the following day by an engineer who checked the line and replaced the connection box. However the problem did persist (the connection would drop off). We suggested maybe a replacement router was required as it did become quite hot at times but other than this it was a very enjoyable stay.

  • "Nice spotlessly clean house."

    Small but adequate for our party of four. Beds very comfy with nice linen. Only slight problem was lack of occasional tables in the lounge to lay wine glasses & coffee cups etc in the evening. Super setting in village just few minutes walk from the long glorious beach. We would definitely stay at this property again & recommend it to others. Everything you need for a lovely holiday provided.

  • "Whilst we have stayed in Beadnell for many years, this was our first time at this excellently located, homely and compact little holiday home - literally a few minutes' walk from bonny Beadnell beach."

    We found it very clean, well-equipped and with nice welcome gifts. We had booked a 2-week, 'working holiday' and the owners very thoughtfully provided our second week's change of bedding and towels all ready for us. Beadnell is an ideal location for exploring all the wonderful local beaches, and also for walking in the Cheviot hills.

  • "Whilst we have stayed in Beadnell for many years, this was our first time at this excellently located, homely and compact little holiday home - literally a few minutes' walk from Beadnell beach, and some great walks."

    We found it very clean, well-equipped and with nice welcome gifts. We had booked a 2-week, 'working holiday' and the owners very thoughtfully provided our second week's change of bedding and towels all ready for us. Beadnell is an ideal location for exploring all the wonderful local beaches, and also for walking in the Cheviot hills. Whilst the property was of a high standard, in contrast, we were shocked and appalled by our experience with Sykes Cottages. After well over a decade of excellent, friendly and helpful service from Sykes, we were left wondering what has happened to this company. Only after we had booked, paid for the holiday months previously, and even worse, actually a day AFTER we arrived in the property to start our holiday, Sykes informed us that the property details had changed. We were no longer permitted to charge our little electric car at the property. No discussion, no negotiation. Despite contacting Sykes immediately via the online system and ringing customer services within 2 hours of being advised of the change to the property, no response. Even now - 3 weeks after contacting Sykes - we still have no response to our urgent request. Dreadful service, and still no explanation. We are not sure whether Sykes even contacted the owner about our concerns: no working EV chargers for our car locally, meaning a 28-mile round trip to Alnwick to charge; madness! Not only ecologically unsound, but constrained our holiday hugely. What on earth has happened to this once-excellent company?

  • "Great property in a great location."

    Perfect for our needs. It had everything we needed for our stay. The only additional comments we would make were the sofa's were low and verging on uncomfortable for us and the master bed was a bit saggy and rolled together. The front door was difficult to open and close, it needed a little force!

  • "The accommodation had been thoroughly cleaned to a very high standard."

    It was well equipped in the kitchen considering the lack of space and the beds were comfortable. The house was nice and warm at all times. It was only a short walk to either a large sandy beach or a rocky bay. The shop at the start if the village was will stocked and saved a few trips to Seahouses which plenty places for meals.

  • "Despite the present situation with Covid19 and fears of infection, as soon as we stepped into the house we felt immediately at ease."

    The place was thoroughly cleaned, in fact it was spotless. We appreciated the bottle of wine and biscuits as a welcome gift and there was nothing we needed that wasn't provided. The estate itself, remembering Beadnell from decades ago, felt rather artificial and anonymous, reminiscent of a set for Stepford Wives or The Truman Show but the house itself was both comfortable and warm (this was late September early October). We were a little disappointed in Sykes' request for an extra £140, as our original booking was for March and because of Covid we had to reschedule for late September - I felt a Spring price ought to have matched an Autumn one - it felt a bit like they were taking advantage of the pandemic. Otherwise it was an excellent break and thoughtful of the weather to provide late summer sun, warm enough for a brief wallow in the North Sea.

  • "Poor phone signal, very poor Wi-Fi."

    One small cafetiere for a house which accommodates 4 people is not adequate. Need smaller tumblers, and a sieve for cooking/straining rice.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. The kind words on the note you left on your departure and the high rating you graded us for cleanliness, means a lot. In answer to some of your other points, firstly, we don't supply a telephone in the house, but if it is your mobile reception you are referring to, then depending on your network provider, the signal can vary given the rural location of the house. However, many of our guests regard the down time from their mobile phone as a plus point and simply enjoy the idyllic setting that Beadnell and surrounding Northumberland area has to offer. Secondly, in terms of very poor Wi-Fi, the house benefits from superfast broadband that is supplied by EE, with consistent download speeds of nearly 66MB, streaming Netflix and other services. Nevertheless, the router has been checked since your departure and I'm pleased to say no issues have been found. We supply two cafetieres in the house, one small and one large for 4 persons (located on the next shelf up). We are sorry you missed it. Finally, a sieve is a great idea and we will certainly add it to our kitchen utensils for our future guests. Thanks again and hopefully you will visit in the future. Property Owner

  • "This was one of the cleanest holiday lets we have stayed in."

    Everything was sufficient for a couple or small family. We were able to contact the owners about a couple of small things and they were very helpful. A nice little garden for meals and within very easy walking distance to the beach which is beautiful and easily big enough for social distancing! Highly recommended.

  • "A well equipped home, suitable for a small family."

    The house is it a few minutes walk from the well kept beach and in a quiet, modern estate in the village of Beadnell. The owners had left a bottle of wine, which was very thoughtful and there was access to things like deckchairs and crabbing buckets. The beds were comfortable, with nice linen and there's a small, but practical and well kept back garden to use. It's only a short drive away from what Northumberland has to offer, highlights being Cragside and Lindisfarne

  • "The house was lovely and the welcome pack was very welcome!"

    The sofas and mattress were a little too soft for our liking, but not a major concern. One suggestion we have, is that a small bin would be useful upstairs. All in all, we had a great time despite the weather - thank you Storm Dennis! Would definitely recommend this property to anyone wishing to explore the Northumberland coast.

About the location

BEADNELL

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.
