  • "We really enjoyed our stay in Northumberland."

    This bungalow is perfectly located to get to all the popular places you could ever want to during your stay. Welcome pack with milk and tea etc was very nice. Could not fault the facilities in the property. Lovely quiet location. We discovered a few foot paths that we used to get to the local pub and beach quicker. Would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again if we return to Northumberland.

  • "Thank you for the very thoughtful hamper for us and our dog."

    Your place was very well equipped and clean. I hadn’t noted there was no washing machine so this was a problem for us. We couldn’t seem to find the keys to open/unlock the windows and this wasn’t too much of a problem but would have been in hotter weather.

  • "Lovely welcome pack and property, pity about the roofers working next door over the weekend, starting at 08:00 Saturday morning, our first morning."

    The roof is now completed but beware, more work will be needed to finish the extension. The property is ideal for the long, sandy beaches and village centre. A fish and chip van is situated adjacent to the well stocked, village shop. Eating at The Beadnell Towers Hotel for Jan's b'day which was very expensive and nothing special. A 10% service charge was added automatically. We do recommend, The Salt Water Cafe for coffee, cakes, lunch and dinner. The Craster Arms is warm and very dog friendly. Over all we had a very relaxing week, in this very well decorated, comfortable, well equipped hideaway. Unfortunately the evening before leaving, people arrived at the other side of us, with two yapping dogs. We love dogs but make an exception when they put out and left too yap for what seems like a lifetime. Saying all this we would return to this property that also dog friendly. Well done to the owners for thinking of everything you would need whilst here.

  • "Swale Cottage is a wonderful, clean, well equipped cottage, it had everything we needed plus more."

    The welcome packs were a great idea, all the little touches within were great. It’s a lovely cosy property to return to after a day exploring the stunning beaches in the area. All in all, we had a fantastic time despite the weather deteriorating towards the end but it meant we could catch up with The Crown on Netflix!!! Thank you for a great holiday.

  • "On the positive side it was very clean and comfortable ( apart from the many cushions, though not a problem)!"

    The hamper was delightful and most welcome. The only slightly negative was the shower went from hot to cold a few times. Other than that we were very satisfied with our stay.

  • "The property was completed to a high specification, with all comforts catered for."

    The welcome package and little touches made it all very special. The only criticism I have is that the shower flow is really poor.

  • "Excellent property,nicely decorated."

    Cosy and comfortable,with a very generous welcome pack.Good location in Beadnell,which we have visited before and is a lovely village. Only a couple of minor suggestions for improvement: shower is a bit weak,though water pressure in bathroom sink taps is good,so worth the owner having a look to see if the shower can be improved. Also a colander and a couple of extra serving bowls including a salad bowl would be great.

    The cottage was truly beautiful, with lovely furniture, decorations and fittings. There was everything we needed and a fantastic ‘welcome hamper’ for us and a goodie box for Otis our dog! About 10 minutes to walk to the beach, 10 minutes to a lovely pub and restaurant and fabulous weather to boot! We couldn’t have wished for anything better......so much so we have booked to come again this time next year!

    The owners had gone the extra mile to make sure we had every comfort. We loved all the furniture, bed was comfortable. A very generous welcome hamper, lovely toiletries and even chocolates on the bed and fresh flowers. Lots of different types of glasses and even a cocktail shaker, everything looked brand new.

    The décor was hi spec, it was spotlessly clean and the welcome pack for both me, my husband and our dog Bobby was very much appreciated.

The property

Swale Cottage is a romantic bolthole resting in the desirable Northumbrian coastal village of Beadnell, in a wonderful position for a seaside escape with your loved one.

Sitting on the outskirts of the village, just paces away from all of the excitement, this beautiful bungalow benefits from an idyllic position from which to explore Northumberland.

Park up outside the property before entering into the enclosed patio at the front of the property, the perfect place for your canine companion to play freely as you soak up the last of the evening sun with a refreshing beverage in hand.

Step into the beautifully-presented open-plan living space where a seating area greets you boasting an impressive chaise lounge and accompanying armchair, a lovely spot to delve into a good book, or snuggle up on the corner sofa together before the Smart TV perched next to the quirky wood-framed mirror.

Perch at the sleek and stylish breakfast bar as you converse into the evening, your dinner simmering happily on the hob in the well-equipped kitchen, home to an electric oven and hob, microwave and a fridge/freezer, while you can also find a range of wonderful eateries on your doorstep too.

End your days beneath the warm of the covers of the inviting spacious bedroom, boasting a television so you can watch all your favourite shows in bed each morning, accompanied by a spacious en-suite shower room where you can prepare for your day in style.

Take a walk into the local village of Beadnell, a peaceful harbour village once an important fishing village and smuggler's haven, it's now a popular area for watersports on the glistening waters of the beach including surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing and scuba diving, as well as being a lovely spot for a stroll with your four-legged friend.

The village is also home to a good selection of amenities including a shop, two pubs to choose from and a café where you can enjoy a delicious lunch before exploring the beauty of the Northumberland Heritage Coastline, with plenty of opportunities for walking and cycling, with plenty of scenic splendour to soak up along the way, stretching over 40 miles from Amble to the Scottish border just past Berwick upon Tweed, there's so much natural beauty to explore at any time of the year.

Visit the nearby village of Seahouses and enjoy a boat trip over to the stunning National Trust owned Farne Islands, the perfect place for bird watchers, with twenty three species including around 43,000 pairs of puffin, as well as dive-bombing terns, a medieval chapel and Victorian lighthouse, there's plenty to explore here.

Explore the market town of Alnwick with its impressive castle, intriguing Poison Garden and good range of restaurants, while the National Trust delight of Dunstanburgh Castle, Craster and Bamburgh all lie within reach too.

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.
