  • "The property was poorly heated, only having night storage heaters, which have always been useless, and have never improved as time has move on."

    Consequently the property was cold and always felt damp, which spoilt the holiday as a whole. Apart from that things were ok overall, but I would find it hard to recommend this property.

    Thank you for your feedback we try to ensure that there are plenty of options for heating in the property, particularly through the winter months. The storage heaters are in the main bedrooms as there is no gas heating in Beadnell. However we provide 2 additional effective heaters(one is an electric stove fire that is found in the living area) that can be used in any location in the property through the winter months The living room has two electric radiators which heat quickly, one large main electric radiator under the main window that can be switch on at any time and the temperature adjusted to the required level. The is another small electrical radiator in the main living area that can also be turned on at anytime and adjusted to the temperature required. If you had contacted me during your stay I could have given you advice/help on how to ensure the property was warm for you at all times. Property Owner

    Well equipped bungalow. Just a bit tight around the bed and by the bunks. Would have liked a shelf in bathroom and an armchair in lounge. Excellent choice of seating in the garden.

  • "Very pleasant and well equipped outside area."

    Lounge roomy and fairly comfortable although main sofa was very hard. Bedrooms had dehumidifiers in them and there were signs of dampness on at least one wall. I developed a wheeze after a couple of days and a runny nose which seemed to disappear when I was outside which makes me wonder if it was the dampness. Some of the furniture looked a bit "tired" and the cold tap in the kitchen seemed to spray everywhere. There was, however, plenty of hot water on demand.

    Matthew thank you for your feedback, the sofa was brand new in August, most of the furniture was replaced in August on completion of the extension except for the leather sofa and dining room table. All mattresses in the property were new in August as was the wardrobe, bedside cabinet in the main bedroom, lighting, all blinds and brand new bedding and towels. The dehumidifiers in the bedrooms are there as this is a coastal property to ensure no condensation build up, when the property is not being used.The outside wall of the the property was re- pointed in May of this year and a brand new extension was completed in August of 2022. We are due to stay at the property ourselves on Saturday so I will look into the wall further. Thanks again for your feedback 24/7/2023 I have reviewed walls in both bedrooms no signs of dampness Property Owner

  • "The cottage was in a great location, within walking distance of the beach and the local shop."

    The property had pretty much everything we needed for our stay. To us, a washing machine/washing line are needed when you have kids and dogs, which were just a couple of the facilities provided. The down side of the property however was it's size. The bedrooms are compact, and the kitchen was tiny. The cooker was literally inches from the sink, which meant you had to be very careful if the cooker was on and you needed to use the sink. The washing up bowl nearly got melted several times. The mattress on the double bed is probably the most uncomfortable I've ever slept on. It was far too soft, you just sank into it. I do understand that something like that is personal choice, and as we have a firm mattress at home, we weren't used to it. It's just unfortunate that we don't like very soft mattresses. The living space needs to be improved. I personally don't think there is any need for 3 sofas. The 3rd "leather" sofa by the dining table isn't really needed, especially given there are only 4 people able to sleep there. Maybe an improvement on the old, dated current dining table/chairs would be better use of the space, or maybe some kind of storage, given there isn't much anywhere else. The garden area was compact, but was sufficient for a week stay. The hose was a great addition to wash everywhere down after a trip to the beach, and the outdoor seating- although we didn't use it- is a great addition too. The biggest issue we had unfortunately was cleanliness. I have taken pictures and if needed I can forward them to be looked at. The problem mostly was the floors. They were very dusty/fluffy especially around the edges/skirting. It was like the middle/main bits were hoovered/brushed, but the outer bits were just left. As we have a dog, I'm very aware that fur is a big issue, so we brushed everywhere through in the living area every day, including the floor mats. We did find a lot of what looked like white dog hair on the mats and on the sofas. Whilst I'm aware dog hair gets everywhere, it just didn't look like a great deal of attention was paid to cleaning up properly. One of the throws provided I noticed was also dirty on arrival. It looked like it had been used but not washed, just put back in the basket. I made sure all 3 were washed and dried on the day we left to make sure they were clean for the next guest. On leaving the property we brushed through but could not mop the floor due to not being a mop. The only thing we could find that resembled one was in the cleaning cupboard and was quite frankly "disgusting". It was covered in dirt/dust/fluff and was not in the best condition (again, I have a photo of this). The shower curtain was another issue, with the hemline at the bottom being black with mould. (Again I have a photo) I would like to think due to hygiene reasons that a shower curtain would be changed/washed for new guests, however this doesn't seem the case. The tiles around the bath looked like they could also do with a good clean, as the grout looked mouldy in places and particularly dirty. The kitchen sink was also lacking in attention to cleaning. I had to give it a thorough clean before I could really use it, along with the dish drainer. The dish drainer had clearly not been cleaned for a while as it had black slime/mould on it, which doesn't make a good place for clean dishes to drain. Overall, I was extremely disappointed with the cleanliness of the property. It was as though no real cleaning actually got done. Whilst I understand that guests are relied on to keep the property clean, some people are obviously not as bothered as others. Plus it seems attention to detail and standards are quite low, given that the property was as dirty as it was.

    Julie thank you for your feedback, I have highlighted all of your comments regarding the cleaning of the property to the manager of the cleaning company we use on a weekly basis. The property is cleaned after every stay by the cleaning company including the shower curtains which are cleaned on a weekly basis, however they will be replaced. We try to ensure that any issues with cleaning can be resolved quickly and efficiently by having the Duty manager's contact number of the cleaning company in the property which kept on the fridge in the kitchen, we encourage people to use this number if not satisfied with the cleanliness of the property on arrival. You mention there is no washing machine or washing line in the property and we have both. I am sorry our property did not meet your expectations, once again the comments have been highlighted to the cleaning company we use. Property Owner

    We found if filthy!! The oven was that bad I couldn't put my food in there the oven tins were rusty, the bathroom was dirty the tiles hadn't been cleaned and the light was very dim and we could touch the light pull as it was black!!! , dog food was stuck to the skirting board, the big window was full of flies!! I did send photos to the owner but she dismissed them

    Hi Linda please do not think we do not take your feedback very seriously, your email with photos was review and replied to by myself , then discussed and reviewed by the owner of the Sykes approved cleaning company we use and it has been forwarded to the Sykes owner relations team. We try to meet all guests expectations by using a professional cleaning company after each stay, we have the cleaning company's Duty manager's contact number in our cottage on a A4 laminated poster, on the fridge in the kitchen. This is there for use on arrival if there are any issues with cleanliness of the cottage, we encourage people to use this, however there was no contact to me or the cleaning company from you until 2 weeks after your stay ,making it impossible to rectify or resolve. Due to your comments we have completed a full inspection of the property on 24th July and any issues have been rectified. Many Thanks for your feedback Property Owner

  • "Nothing 'went wrong', firstly, I felt penalised financially for booking by phone."

    The holiday let was adequate for two for a week, my expectations were wrong, if the weather had been bad the experience would have been worse. The info in the let was an ad hoc collection with multiple leaflets for the same indian restaurant, but no village orientation map, no info on local walks, which was our interest, no menu for the ONLY local pub . The let had all we needed, we just couldn't both be in the bedroom at the same time unless one of us was in bed, we couldn't sit at the table And access the kitchen area, but heigh ho caveat emptor

  • "Unfortunately this was one of the least enjoyable Sykes 'cottages' that we have stayed in."

    In our opinion: - accommodation was on the cramped side which had not been expected given the property pictures; - there were some cleanliness issues; - noise was a bit intrusive at times from the con-joined properties. On the plus side the location was very good with plenty to keep us occupied during our stay. In summary - we wouldn't be in a hurry to stop at Sunrise Cottage again. NB Happy for you publish this review or not as you feel fit. It's given as being our personal opinion relative to other self catering properties that we have stopped in.

    Thank you for your feedback, We are sorry to hear that the property size didn't meet your expectations, we do feel that the photos and description do give a true representation of our cosy property and large decking area. Property Owner

    It could do with a deep clean. We found hairs in the bath plug hole etc. We use sykes alot and we think this was not one of your best properties advertised. On the plus it had everything you needed in the kitchen and the bed was clean and comfortable. Nice soft towels.

    Many thanks for your feedback from your visit on the 22nd June yes we aware the property is small but it is described as a small corner terrace property. In the main bedroom the photographs are accurate showing the bed a wardrobe, 2 bedside cabinets and space to walk down either side of the bed. In relation to the cleaning of the property I will take onboard your comments but Sunrise Cottage and our cleaner often receives many positive comments in relation to the cleanliness of the property.

  • "After the initial shock of how small the cottage was, we were pleasantly surprised to find it well equipped, but in need of a some TLC."

    The sofa was extremely uncomfortable, there was absolutely no privacy, if you did a little bit of washing you had to hang it outside in front of the house, where you could also sit in full view of everyone. It looked neglected outside, there were four or five pots full of weeds, when you walked down the road and saw some of the other holiday rentals with lovely gardens and pots of flowers, which also gave a bit of privacy, you realise how sad our little cottage was. I would not book it again, as we usually do when we find somewhere we like especially in such a beautiful area,or recommend it.

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.
