  • "Hi I emailed you on Sat and Sun to report issues and I asked for a call yesterday - I have heard nothing back."

    The property is fab and a great location but there are some real issues: 1. Hole in top floor shower pipe; makes shower unusable 2. The flush in 2 of 3 middle floor bathrooms does not work - the stench was horrific 3. Cupboards in kitch are very dirty and untidy; we had to was everything before use. 4. Very difficult to lock front door and patio door. The property is not as advertised and in desperate need of some TLC. I have requested a call back and answer to emails I sent over the weekend. Thanks Claire

  • "The showers were not particularly good."

    Difficult to moderate temperature and not powerful.

  • "Fantastic house, lovely and warm, clean, plenty of utensils and crockery."

    Also loads of stuff that could be used in the shed too. Wonderful stay and will come back.

  • "On arrival there were no spare dustbin bags, no soap, no dishwasher tabs, no scouring pads for washing up (despite the request not to use the dishwasher for glasses)."

    Also there were confectionery wrappers under one of the twin beds, the shower heads were filthy with grime, the mat under the window in first floor bedroom with the balcony was soaking wet, the freeview channels were unavailable and we used our own logins for cable. In addition, it was wet weather and every time the back door was opened it resulted in a pool of water on the kitchen floor. The bin store needs the upper bolt reinforced,as in strong winds it is not strong enough to prevent the doors bursting open. The access to the utility room is problematic as the lock is stiff due to the door being tight in the frame; opening the door requires some strength to pull the door towards you to ease the pressure on the yale lock to allow it to turn. The broken latch fitting on the door would suggest that this has been a long-standing issue. There are weeds growing up through the astro turf, which needs attention.

  • "The heating was off when we arrived and it was -5 outside so the first night was uncomfortable."

    Also, there seems to be too few radiators in the living area to keep the room warm so we had to ask for some plug in heaters to get the house warm although Sykes were very responsive and sorted them out the following day. Also we could not get the Freeview working on any of the TVs. Apart from this we enjoyed the house and stay.

  • "A really great property in a great location."

    Lovely space and fantastic that all rooms have access to their own En-Suite. The property was let down slightly in a few areas as follows :- - on arrival there was no toilet roll in the top floor bathroom and the windowsill in that room was visibly dusty and sandy. - the welcome pack was very basic. We have stayed in a number of similar properties and have had some milk, coffee, tea, biscuits and a bottle of wine. Whilst the biscuits were nice a pint of milk and some coffee for the machines would have been welcome. - Mugs - the property is well equipped with most items - plenty of wine glasses, plates, cutlery but only 8 mugs that we were forever having to wash up. Adding another 4 or 6 mugs would make a great difference! Overall we loved the property and will certainly look at booking again as the space was great for the family, location good, views lovely and beds comfortable.

  • "Really lovely house in a fab location - easy to walk to the wonderful beach and nearby restaurants (we particularly liked Beadnell Kitchen and The Landing)."

    The house was very comfortable and tastefully furnished. Our only gripe was that when we arrived at 7pm after a 7 hour journey there wasn’t a single toilet roll in the house so we had to drive straight out to the next village (Seahouses) to find some. Apparently it was an oversight (but an annoying one for us). We also encountered a leaking shower (down through the kitchen ceiling) as the sealant around the edge of the bath had perished. The rest of the house was in excellent condition. The information says parking for 2 small cars on the driveway. One of these would have to be a REALLY small car in order to fit two on the driveway!

  • "An excellent property perfect for the bigger family break."

    We would definitely stay again. Proximity to the beach is fantastic Biggest issue is the number of people who look into the house as they walk past, I think the advertising of the holiday home on the outside promotes this. It got a bit tiresome in the end with one couple actually looking stopping and pointing things out in the house, whilst we were eating lunch.

    It was so well equipped inside - everything you could possibly need. The shed was packed with an amazing range for an outing to the beach. We loved it.

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.
