  • "We had a lovely week at The Snug, very well equipped with everything we needed."

    Thankyou so much for the welcome pack & doggy treats, very much appreciated. Loved that we could just walk from The Snug to both beaches, ideally located for exploring the area. We would definitely stay again.

  • "A lovely bungalow in a quiet area, great access to the beach at Beadnell and the local village amenities, Susan met us when we arrived and gave us a few pointers on local places to visit and eat."

    The perfect base for exploring the Northumberland Coast, we spent a week here and loved every minute of it. Would definitely recommend!

  • "Very well located, equipped and clean property, everything worked."

    When we were there in mid June it was in a very quiet area. Good place to be based for exploring the delights of the Northumberland coast. The entrance to number 74 is down the path by the LAMPPOST on the left after you have gone around the corner into Longstone Park. The allocated parking bay is in the parking area which is a few yards further on, also on the left.

  • "It's a fabulous small property in a lovely little village."

    We've been staying in Beadnell once or twice a year in similar properties for almost 10 years now and this one is the best so far. Only criticism is the WiFi in the property barely works. There's little phone signal either (ee) unless you stand in the garden. Overall though, an amazing little property with way more space than you'd expect looking in and in a perfect place for a relaxing holiday and a base to explore the area.

  • "Immaculate, clean, warm and in a perfect location."

    Directions to property are incorrect. This is not a detached property. The bed needs a topper on it. The sofa in the lounge is not as shown in photographs and is now a Chesterfield settee which we found uncomfortable. It has been refurbished to a high standard and is fully equipped with everything you could need. The WiFi is weak and was in and out. There is only a back door which has 2 steps which may not suit people with mobility issues. The welcome hamper, flowers and dog treats were much appreciated. A mixed review but more good points overall.

    Thank you for your feedback. The snug is not described as being detached In the description. The mattress was new in December 22,but I do understand it may not be to your personal needs.The sofa has been renewed to general Wear and tear,and keeping the property to a standard,which we are proud off. WiFi can be poor in the area ,which I don't have any control over.Alot of our customers compromise with their hot spot option. Property Owner

  • "Lovely property with everything you need."

    Enjoyed relaxing in the conservatory after a day out walking. Bed really comfortable and in our opinion, not hard as mentioned in another review. Our only quibble was the WiFi. Not very reliable but I came to realise this was a general issue in the area, not just at The Snug. We did struggle to find the property at first as it is behind other bungalows and not visible from the road, so instructions sent from Sykes need to be a little clearer. A great week’s stay and we will definitely be back.

  • "We loved the property and the welcome hampers."

    We originally struggled to find the property and the designated parking bay. Clearer instructions would have been helpful. A local resident helped us to find it. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. A recycling bin would have been helpful inside the property.

    Gorgeous interiors which have been really well thought out. Great base to explore local beauty spots and only a 5 minute walk to the beach. Peaceful and quiet area and a handy green area to take the dogs out before bed. Enclosed courtyard offers peace of mind for dog owners. Will definitely be back one day.

  • "Rotten weather which was no fault of the holiday cottage owner but meant that I spent more time indoors than usual."

    The laminate floor could do with having a rug in the sitting area, apart from that it was all good quality and warm. Nice to have Netflix. Lovely welcome hamper and fresh flowers. I am sure the conservatory will be a bonus in better weather conditions.

  • "The Snug was lovely and clean, very modern and had everything we required for our stay."

    Great location, not far from the beach with 2 good pubs within walking distance. Internet was bad but this could be down to location.The only downside was the comfort of the bed. Myself and my wife did not have a good night's sleep during our stay as the mattress was uncomfortable and you could feel the wrought iron bed frame. Due to this we would not book again.

  • "A tastefully decorated comfortable little cottage with everything we would need for our stay."

    Very peaceful area which was ideal for us as we stayed over the bonfire night weekend with our dog. A nice touch was the welcome hamper with wine, chocolates, biscuits, crisps, tea, coffee & milk, together with some doggie treats for our girl. Heating was by the way of electric radiators, with also a log effect fire & all were really easy to use, they warmed up the space really quickly. Only small issue we had was the internet connection dropped in & out frequently so we couldn’t do any proper searching for places to visit while there. There’s a couple of pubs a short walk from the cottage, The Craster Arms, which was quite full on Friday evening with the locals, not ideal if you’re wanting a quiet drink, it would probably be ok during the week though. There’s also the Beadnell towers Hotel, both serve food daily. All in all it was a lovely place to stay,

    Lovely touch with welcome hampers for us and our dog. Perfect base for travelling to local places of interest, 5 minute walk to beaches for the dog who loved the beaches at Beadnell and surrounding areas. Would recommend the local pubs for meals especially the local Alnwick steak pie! Advise to book a table can get busy in either of the pubs in village.

    The only improvements I could suggest is to state in the description that the car park is away from the cottage and that the cottage cannot be seen from the road. Other than that we were very impressed by the quality of the fixtures and fittings in the cottage and the lovely welcome pack provided both for us and the dog. I would also like to thank the owners for ringing me to tell me that I had left a couple of things behind.

    The little sun-lounge is very cozy and gets the morning sun; an excellent addition to the property. The hamper, flowers and chocolates made our holiday special from the moment we arrived; even our dog was thought of with his own doggy hamper. We felt it was unfortunate that there was no extractor fan above the cooker as the smoke alarm went off when we used the grill. It’s advisable to open the kitchen window before cooking. Beadnell is the ideal location for exploring the Northumberland coast. We enjoyed an early morning walk from the property every day of our stay; it was wonderful! Many thanks.

The snug is in a great location, only a 5 min walk to the beach which is fantastic for the early morning strolls with the dog. Beadnell has 2 pubs & a small village shop for all your immediate needs.

    The car parking space is not next to the cottage but is on a residents car park 25 metres away. Beadnell no longer has a fish and chip shop but does have a reasonably stocked shop. Having read trip advisor about the Caster arms pub restaurant which had several negative reports we decided to try it out. We found the opposite it had a very good system to cope with covid19 we could see no reason to criticise the management. Beadnell bay is ideal for walking and for children the dog recommends the ice cream van at the harbour which he visited almost every day.

    We had a welcome hamper on arrival and so did our cocker spaniel jack. Really appreciated. It was jack's first holiday and he loved the garden and grass in front of the bungalow as well as all the walks to lovely beaches - all within easy distance. Great area to visit. The furnishings within the bungalow were great and it was very well equipped. Obviously the owner has taken pride in ensuring great presentation and attention to detail. Due to the covid19 lockdown we were apprehensive about the holiday despite lockdown being eased allowing us to go but we were happy with all the extras measures made by the owners and sykes cottages that had been enforced as regards - cleaning, contact and there was plenty of antibacterial soaps etc. I had also taken my own. Masks had also been left for us. We felt safe and the local pub and restaurant were well organised. It was just the break we needed as my husband is a keyworker and has worked right through the pandemic and was ready for some time out. Bamburgh, Warkworth and Amble are all lovely places and nice beach walks. If you wanted to visit castles etc it was all pre booked online and times given to ensure social distancing but having a dog we had decided we didn't need to visit cadtles or shops etc. It was all about Jack this time. Seahouses and Lower Newton were recommended as being lovely places to visit but they seemed too busy for us as we arrived so maybe another time as we will be back. Great holiday.

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.
