  • "Myself, the wife & dog just spent a great week in the snug, a spotless cottage with everything you need."

    The welcome hamper which included tea, coffee, biscuits, cakes, wine & other extras is the best by far & was greatly appreciated. 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. Seahouses is only a couple of miles up the road and is a great day out, it also has a co-op if you need any more essentials. A really relaxing break was had and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the snug.

  • "Loved the cottage as soon as we went in, beautifully furnished and an amazing hamper for us and our dog, love the beaches and walks around the area, the only thing was that the same week next year is £250 more so not sure we will be back witch is a shame, I know prices increase but think this is a lot for a week in September."

  • "This property is in an ideal place for a beach and touring holiday around Northumberland."

    It is in a quiet area so good for sleeping after a hard day walking or touring. We didn’t have a dog but I believe one dog is acceptable in this property. The Snug is decorated to a very high standard. We would be happy to stay at the Snug again if we visit the area again.

    The Snug was very comfortable and nice and clean and modern the towel rail heater in the bathroom didn't come on all week and the weather was rainy and wet so we couldn't dry our bath towels

    Thank you for your feedback! We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at The Snug. We are sorry to hear that the heated towel rail didn't work during your stay. As mentioned in the information book at the property this would need to be turned on at the wall, we would have been more than happy to advise this if you had contacted us during your stay. We hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Lovely little bungalow with conservatory, great location for other towns/villages to visit, welcome pack was great even had one for my dog, well informed of details before arrival, only two suggestions, need a blind in bedroom, and probably a table and chairs in lounge, for board games etc, as breakfast bar was not sufficient, although this was not a problem for us, as we organised other alternative,would definitely recommend this property and hope to return soon."

  • "The bedroom has very little room at the sides of the bed and would be difficult if you had any mobility problems."

    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.

  • "Beautiful holiday let."

    Very tastefully done with homely touches everywhere. Everything you could possibly want - home from home - even cling film and kitchen foil in the drawers. A lot of things we took such as kitchen roll were already there. Beautiful hamper for ourselves and one for Willow our dog to welcome us. Very clean - even masks, gloves and sanitiser for us. Loved the conservatory to look out onto the green - a bonus as well when the weather was bad. Would highly recommend and would use again!

  • "It was exactly as we had expected and more."

    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.

  • "A lovely place to stay in a great location."

    I can’t fault the description of the cottage as it was spot on and is ideal for a couple. The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise and much appreciated. It’s in an ideal location for lovely beaches, coastal walks and handy enough to travel a bit further afield by car if you wish. If you don’t want to walk or take car there is an option of using the local bus service. We were there for 7 nights and used a mix of walking and bus to get to and from Seahouses, not too far to drive either to get across to Holy Island. The local pubs had great food and a shop minutes away for essentials.

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.
