  • "An absolutely lovely little cottage, the perfect size and space for our short stay in wonderful Northumberland."

    The cottage was immaculate and the facilities were great, the owners have provided everything that you would need for a self-catering stay. Would definitely come back to Swale Cottage again, thank you!

    No comfortable dining area inside or out only a small breakfast bar. limited outdoor space only at the front of the property overlooked by footpath and road. Double bed small.

  • "Enjoyed my stay at Swale Cottage."

    Loved the decor, well equipped kitchen, spacious shower. Welcome hamper a good touch. I had one issue with the door, Susan and Norman came straight away travelling from Gateshead to rectify it. Friendly helpful hosts. Would highly recommend a stay.

    The cottage was extremely clean and very comfortable. It is beautifully designed in a very quiet area but not far to walk to the beach, shop and Craster Arms. I can highly recommend this property for a lovely stay and I would definitely return.

    Close to village and beach. Everything seems to have been thought of to make our stay comfortable. Would have preferred bigger bath towels is the only (minor) suggestion for improvement.

    Unfortunately you can hear the neighbours which was frustrating at 6am. Nice seating outside but not very private as you are at the front of the property.

    Everything was lovely and clean. Nice welcome basket on arrival including treats for our dog. Fridge is tiny so not able to have shopping delivered as no room to store anything more than a days food but that's a minor gripe. Perfectly placed for access to the beach and Craster Arms pub (excellent food). Will definitely be booking again.

  • "Lovely, clean and modern bungalow in a fabulous, easy to walk to the beach location in Beadnell."

    The bungalow was easy to find, being winter we parked right outside, nut it does have an allocated parking space in a car park behind. The bungalow is spacious, modern with comfy furnishings and everything you could possibly require for a home away from home stay. The fresh flowers and generous welcome hamper was a lovely surprise, as was the dog hamper including treats and a towel. The owners have thought of everything but a small suggestion would be a rug in the lounger area for added comfort and a rug to step out of bed onto on a cold, snowy, wet winters morning. Would we return, definitely.

  • "Great bungalow in a central location with nice furnishings."

    Comfortable enough for two with all needs covered. A lovely touch with a hamper each for humans and dogs! The only comment I would add is that the bed frame (metal) looks great but needs tightening up on its joints as every time one or the other moves it squeaks which is annoying, especially if it wakes the other up

  • "Very well equipped and spotlessly clean."

    A Welcome hamper there for us plus treats for our dog. This property is excellent for a nice holiday in Northumberland. The only small negative, and it is small, is that the photos kind of give the impression that there is a private garden seating area but there is only a bit at the front of the property, as it is a back to back bungalow and u can hear the neighbours through the walls. Apart from that it is very comfortable and we didn't have anybody staying on either side of us for the last 4 days of our stay. Overall for the price, it's a nice place to stay, we had a nice time there.

  • "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.

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.

    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 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.

Choose Swale Cottage as your beautiful holiday base on an escape to Northumberland.

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.
