  • "Absolutely loved our stay at Sandy Cove."

    The cottage was spotless and very well presented. The kitchen had everything you might need during your stay. Our dog loved the garden and the short 2 min walk to the beach. We would love to book again in the future.

  • "A great property, we’ve stayed before and enjoyed it for a second time."

    Very handy for the beach and for getting to nearby towns and attractions. Beadnell village is lovely as is the pub and the fish and chip van which makes an appearance on a weekend (up to the end of October). Another great Beadnell holiday.

  • "Would like to say that we were disappointed in the cleanliness of the house."

    Not been allowed in until 5 pm on the understanding of deep clean , due to Covid. That did nt happen the house was filthy, we had to vacate for cleaners to come back early next morning. Was very distressing and caused anxiety .

    Thank you for your feedback. The Owner was very sorry that the property was not clean properly on this occasion and the matter has been dealt with to ensure property is cleaned to a high standard for all future bookings. Kind regards Property Owner

    The house suited our needs perfectly (3 generations plus dog) and the proximity to the beach is a definite bonus. Have already booked for next year.

  • "The Property is only 2 min walk to a beautiful beach, the property had everything you need, we only found a couple of issues but it didn’t stop us enjoying ourselves, the welcome cake and milk was much appreciated."

    The only issues were the downstairs shower cubicle was not clean, and there were dirty tissues at the back of the bed, the only other issue is cupboard space for food. This could be easily sorted by cutting down on glasses ect. You could store them in the Garage. We would definitely book again.

  • "The property was very good and excellent location."

    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.

  • "The facilities were up to expectation."

    Little niggles like no hooks in the downstairs shower room, the mirror set far too high in the family bathroom, extractor fans not working, unable to access the internet despite using the codes provided, the information regarding the bins was inaccurate. 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. The WIFI codes are provided and correct & the information regarding the bins is issued from the local council so will be the same for all properties in the area. We appreciate you taking the time to leave these comments. Thank you Property Owner

  • "We had a very lovely stay at Sandy Cove in Beadnell."

    The house had everything we needed and the enclosed back garden was especially great for our cockapoo who loved to chance the baby rabbits every morning but fortunately never caught one! I would recommend this house with its seaside themed wall art to any family wishing to stay in the wonderful Beadnell. Plenty of space for all.

    Spotlessly clean with great central heating and plenty hot water for baths and showers at any time. Wi-Fi was excellent and the large TV had added bonus of free Netflix for evening viewing. Very comfortable lounge and large dining table good for family meals. Very quiet area at night so sleep is a joy. Lots to see and do in area to keep the whole family happy. The beach here is outstanding and our 4 year old Golden Retriever had a great week on the sand and the dunes. Highly recommended.

  • "Sandy Cove is a wonderful place to stay."

    The location is superb, within 30 min drive of Lindesfarne, Bamburgh, Alnwick, Seahouses, Dunstanburgh and everything inbetween. The cottage itself is just 100 yards or so from the sweeping Beadnell beach. The cottage was very clean and well furnished with a full larder and garage for all the holiday essentials. I would recommend it and would gladly stay there again.

  • "We had occasion to call Sykes twice."

    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.

  • "Sandy cove is an extremely comfortable house."

    On entering the property it was lovely and warm. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. I have been to a few properties in Beadnel and that is the first that has left a welcome pack. The kitchen is well equipped and everything was clean in it. The linen on the beds was spotless as were the beds. The king size bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've been in. Plenty space in the property. 3 bathrooms. One being a shower room with toilet down stairs. An enclosed garden which is safe for children and dogs. Great location just 2 min walk to the beach. We are looking forward to going back in October and taking our grandchildren.

    We could easily store all our bicycles and have direct access onto the road. We can recommend the village shop for fresh bread a wide range of necessaries, the pub The Craster Arms to walk to and for great atmosphere and, of course, the main feature, easy access to the harbour and coast both South to Newton and North to Seahouses (where all facilities can be found). We also recommend the Willowburn Leisure Centre at Alnwick for swimming, fitness classes etc.

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.
