  • "Had a wonderful time at Sandy Cove and would definitely return !"

    House was warm and comfortable, and the location is amazing. I would agree with previous comments regarding it needing a freshening up ( the kettle in particular could do with replacing ) but I understand that is something the owners look at when they come to stay. Overall, we thought it was a fab house and we made some lovely memories there so thank you :0)

  • "The house is ideally positioned for the beach, literally minutes from the beach."

    The house is comfortable and well equipped. We had a problem with the key when we first arrived but we oiled the lock and it worked perfectly afterwards. Just a couple of niggles, an outside light in the garden would be helpful, from the side gate infront of the bin storage could do with flags or gravel putting down, as if it's rained or when you come back from the beach it can get a bit messy and there was no mat by the utility door. The fan in the upstairs bathroom wasn't working. As I said a bit nit picking but those were the only faults. I would certainly book this house again when we are next in Northumberland.

  • "The main bathroom lacks a shower, the shower in the ensuite is at the wrong end of the bath making it awkward to use, the stairs and upper floors creak which is not good when getting children to sleep, some decorating is required."

    It would be beneficial to pave the area where the waste bins are located and the approach, to avoid walking on wet/muddy grass.On the plus side the property is close to the beach, has parking for two cars and has a good sized enclosed garden.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are looking to decorate the property later this year. Again thank you for taking the time to give feedback. Property Owner

    2 minutes to a wonderful beach, lovely warm property that is spacious, comfortable and nicely set out. Love the DVD player as it means we can watch our favourite films after long walks. Great location and loads of parking at the front of the property. Enclosed garden for our dog too. We had a great time and will be back!

  • "Excellent location, near the beach."

    The cottage was comfortable and did have everything we needed. It was clean and the garden and furniture a welcome addition for the lovely sunshine we had. The house just felt a little tired and worn in places, and would probably benefit from a bit of an update. That said it did tick all the boxes for a great long weekend.

  • "The property is ideal for our needs - grandma, parents, 2 children and dog and feels like a real home from home."

    It’s well equipped and very comfortable and the pool table in the garage is a welcome diversion on a rainy day. I guess it’s obvious that we like it as we’ve just spent our 8th holiday there. An overbath shower in the family bathroom would be a useful addition, but that’s a minor point. We love Northumberland - the beach at Beadnell is fabulous and, as we live in North Yorkshire, it’s not far to travel.

  • "The house was brilliant."

    Literally minutes from the sea and local restaurant which served a lovely breakfast. The house was spotless and comfortable, it contained everything we could possible need. If I had to find one fault it could be the need for an outside light at the rear, probably during summer months it wouldn't be needed but with going early in the year it would have been a welcome addition. That said we will certainly be booking again we were so pleased with our choice of house. Thank you to the owners, we had a wonderful stay.

    Thank you for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. The property is very well decorated throughout, and we are sorry to hear that you felt it was “tired.” We admit there were four chipped plates and confirm these have been removed. The utensils are checked on every changeover and the cleaning team do their very best to deliver high cleanliness standards, however your points relating to the cleanliness of the property will, of course, be taken on board. With regards to the garden furniture, we thank you for bringing this to our attention and would like to assure you that we will look to replace the chairs as soon as possible. Had we been made aware of these concerns during your stay, we would have done our very best, as quickly as possible, to put things right for you. Thank you again for your feedback. Property Owner

    However had an issue with the ensuite shower. This was an over bath one and as the bath slopped and the shower head was quite small it was tricky getting right under it but even worse was that the water ran hot and then cold! The downstairs shower ran fine but the actual cubicle is quite small. It was ok for us but could be a problem for some people.

Being the end of the season some things were getting "tired". Overall though a very good property and one we would use again.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear you would visit us again. The extractor fan is in good working order. Its possible that it was switched off at the wall in error.

    Both calls sorted the issues quickly. Minor winge - think one key for 4 bedroomed house is not on - there ought to be other keys inside. Yes the one key could go back into the key box but the key box is perhaps over-used because of there being one key... and is quite difficult to open at times. Clearly not everyone in a party wants to come and go at the same time. All in all a well equipped & nicely furnished large house on a quiet road very close to an excellent beach. Btw, the only reason didn’t give it top comfort was because sofas getting a bit squishy.

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.
