  • "The house is lovely with good outdoor space and is close to an excellent family friendly beach."

    Having a wine chiller was great. The kitchen could do with 6 same size wine glasses, kitchen scales and measurement spoons. The large lounge wall clock was broken off the wall attachments and was just resting on a radiator. This should have been previously reported and fixed. The outdoor seating is poorly maintained, the wooden structure is split and the decking also needs cleaning and protecting. The outdoor seating cushions are needing better covers and we had to use our own travelling blankets for covers. However these aspects did not detract from our holiday and are honest feedback to help enhance experience of future visitors.

    Good information ahead of our visit. No coffee pot or similar but otherwise very well equipped. Cooling cupboard for winer a nice touch !

  • "We loved this property."

    Spotlessly clean, really comfortable and with plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses etc. Ideally situated with local beaches, restaurants and shop with bigger towns within walking distance. Could not fault it in any way.

  • "Wonderful holiday property."

    Very well fitted out with good quality beds, linen and towels. Vaulted ceilings made it feel spacious. Warm and comfortable. Good position close to beach. The site itself was quiet and peaceful. No complaints and would certainly book again if we return to Northumberland.

  • "Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home."

    This is our second time. So many nice things to say but I imagine you are looking to where improvements can be made. We would love to stay a 3rd time but struggle with the comfiness of the settee. Sitting of an evening is not great as the settee is so uncomfortable, beds are lovely. Overall I'd say that the house just needs a little TLC it has taken a bashing being used so often. The inevitable leaks from Showers have the wood plinth rotting and twisted. Sealant in showers is mouldy, so what should be a nice clean shower is not. 2 bathroom bins had not been emptied when we arrived and soiled sanitary ware in them. Broken blinds and outdoor seating damaged. Settee not only uncomfortable but dirty. Small things to rectify as all else lovely.

  • "We really enjoyed our time at Waterside in Beadnell."

    We stayed as 2 couples & a small dog. It was the perfect spot for exploring the Northumbrian coastline. The house is very comfortable, spacious & the living area is great for socialising. It would have been good to have an enclosed garden but we were aware this was not the case when booking. Also a slight shame some of the garden furniture was broken - although we hadn’t expected to be using in March. If we come back to Northumbria I would definitely look to rebook & would recommend

  • "The house was really lovely, also the beach and surrounding area was fabulous, just a couple of things, the tin opener was broken, the blind was also broken on the patio door which was permanently closed."

    The patio furnitures table leg was not secure so we never used that. Also finding the last holiday makers dirty towels in the bathroom cupboard.Not being able to recycle glass on site was sldo strange, you had to use the car park recycling bins

  • "Good afternoon Had a lovely stay at your accommodation and have stayed within the estate many times … recommendations for improvements from other property’s I have stayed at within the estate are as follows- ."

    Bluetooth speaker to play own music during stay . Tennis rackets to play on tennis courts . An important improvement would be a dedicated private area at the Back of property to allow dogs out safely within decking or fenced area

  • "This is our second stay this year at Waterside so that should speak volumes."

    It combines fresh, warm, spotlessly clean and homely, with modern, cool and stylish. It has an abundance of quality accessories that enhance your stay from thick fluffy full-size bath sheets and a wine fridge, to a Bluetooth speaker and a large Smart TV. The north was reeling from the after effects of Storm Arwen, when it was followed up by its slightly smaller but equally formidable Storm Barra during our stay. During the inclement weather Waterside suffered a very temporary power surge which knocked out the central heating. It was not a big deal but long term it might have impacted our stay. However several exchanges of texts to the “caretaker”, Rachel was liaising with a plumber and with their instructions we had it back up and running within a few hours. We were extremely impressed with her response time, her delightful manner and her professionalism. Thank you Rachel. We mentioned, after our last stay, the lack of window blinds on the stairs/upstairs landing. We were very pleased to see a new set of Venetian blinds at these windows which now allowed us to walk between the bedroom and bathroom unobserved at the front of the accommodation. This too was much appreciated. The accommodation is chic, contemporary and classy and we love it, but combined with its location, its close to idyllic. Waterside is only a few hundred yards, along a flat, easy stroll from an expansive, soul-lifting sandy beach. This is perfect for families, walkers, children, surfers and our four-legged friends, and in any weather was a daily pick-me-up. We are exponents of the “There is no such thing as bad weather just the wrong clothes” school of thought. We loved it, again, and we’ve booked, again. Enough said.

  • "Amazing house beautifully presented."

    Very close to a secluded beach to walk n run with the dog. 2 lovely pubs that are a good 25 mins walk away they serve great food n are dog friendly n warm n welcoming. The only thing was we never had any washing up liquid,dishcloth,tea towels,dishwasher tablets. We did take our own but the village shop was closed if we hadn’t have brought our own we would have had to drive to seahouses to get some which is not far away but was expecting at least 1 days worth of Kitchen amenities. Lovely stay tho and a very comfy house.

  • "Firstly, and most importantly, we had a lovely time and we were really delighted with this beautiful house."

    So much so that we have booked again for next year. The following comments are in no way ‘complaints’ but are suggestions and requests to hopefully make things even better and add to the comfort and convenience of everyone’s stay. 1. All toilets not flushing fully and the main bathroom one is not working at all on full flush. 2. Several curtain hooks broken in master bedroom. 3. Broken blind in lounge you know about. We left it closed all week. 4. Bracket needed to fix that dangerous kitchen shelf to the wall of the cupboard (far right corner cupboard) 5. Equipment needed for kitchen as follows:- glass or ceramic microwave dishes and/or jugs. Glass or ceramic Serving jug. Cereal bowls (if microwave proof could help the aforementioned). A smaller additional fry pan and an omelette pan. It was almost impossible to do a ‘holiday breakfast’ also had to fry a steak and a tuna steak in same pan at same time, still tasted good though. A plastic slice/spatula to protect those new smaller fry pans. 6. The weather was nice enough to use the outdoor furniture but no cushions!! I sometimes think that unless you are, as an owner, staying in the house yourself, it’s difficult to know what is actually ‘missing’ and ‘needed’. I sincerely hope this is received as helpful and not seen as criticism and I look forward to the improvements next year. Thanks again for a lovely stay.

  • "Host was very quick to rectify fact that one of outdoor chairs was broken, however I would have expected the inspection of the property to have clearly noted this in advance of our arrival."

    Some of the cushions were stained and one bedroom had no pillow covers. We also noticed a small white pill on the landing, which didn't belong to us. It might have been from when we took towels out of laundry basket to wash them. Disappointed the host denied the pill was from the property,and insisted it was ours.

    Such a wonderful area. And the house is beautiful. The only thing missing were some egg cups and extra mugs would have been useful. We weren't aware of the building going on nearby (although it is highlighted on the description now) and it was fairly low level for our stay.

  • "Lovely property minutes from the beach well equipped and spotlessly clean."

    Only thing to be aware of there is a development of new houses going in behind the house and the building work noise is considerable from 8:30 am to 6 pm diggers are clearly visible from the house so effectively looking out to building site.

  • "Lovely place, very clean & great location."

    The kitchen is well equipped, bathrooms good quality. I was surprised that there is not a shaver point in any of the bathrooms as they are modern & nowadays a lot of people have electric toothbrushes. Also no welcome pack, most holiday lets leave you a pint of milk & a few goodies as well as a few toiletries which is a nice touch. I also think 1 jay cloth & 1 scrubber with a tiny amount of washing up liquid is short sighted if you want guests to keep the kitchen clean. Overall would certainly recommend.

  • "The property is a beautiful home on a small, exclusive site with about thirty other similarly styled, but different dwellings."

    They all are surrounded by lawns without boundaries, which allows for anyone to stroll through your “garden” with their dog, which takes some getting used to. The listing did not include a washing machine which surprised us, and this was confirmed (twice) by a phone call to Sykes. This obviously determines the amount of clothes etc that are needed. On arrival, a washer/drier was found which was welcome news, but rather galling too. The overall ambience of the property is contemporary, stylish and cool, however a few niggles prevented us from giving Waterside the five stars it so easily could have attained. The stairs have a full length window on the first landing, other similar properties had shutters/blinds/curtains for privacy, Waterside had nothing. The main shower in the main bathroom is an electric Triton T80, which is relatively feeble and unbecoming of such a high priced property, whereas the mains fed “power shower” in the en-suite was excellent. There was a shortage of glasses, cooking pans, and general cookware, especially if the property was to cater to its full complement of six guests. Again, the standard of the existing crockery and glasses was rather utilitarian. I’d describe the glasses as those you’d get from the forecourt of a petrol station. Having said all that, the plus points way outweighed the negatives. The property was meticulously prepared and spotlessly clean. The furniture and fittings were beautiful and obviously styled by someone with exquisite taste. The 55 inch smart TV, Bluetooth soundbox, and WiFi were superb although the faux log fire was rather temperamental. The dining table was lovely, although the chairs were rather low, and we needed cushions to reach a comfortable eating height, and I’m over 6 feet tall. The bedrooms were delightful, and the bedding was immaculate and the beds were very comfortable. The Juliet balcony overlooking the bulrush-surrounded pond (which is fenced off for safety) was an added bonus to the master bedroom. The house is literally a three minute walk to the picturesque, sweeping sands of Beadnell bay, which is just superb, and a ma-hoosive plus point. Ideal for families, singletons, couples and dog-lovers alike. We believe we are reasonable guests and have stayed in self catering properties around the UK and Europe for over three decades. In conclusion, Waterside is a wonderful, warm and welcoming home, we loved it and have rebooked for later in the year. Please amend the listing to inform other potential guests that the kitchen has a washing machine, and possibly address our other points, but we’ll be back nevertheless.

Beadnell Point Cottages

Two extraordinary holiday homes resting on the exclusive Beadnell Point park, this pair of stylish abodes can be found on the outskirts of Beadnell amidst the spectacular Northumberland Heritage Coastline. Together sleeping up to thirteen guests, the Beadnell Point Cottages offer an exceptional holiday stay for groups of friends or families seeking a fun-filled escape to the coast of Northumbria. The properties lie just a short stroll away from each other, with both offering spacious open-plan living areas accompanied by warming woodburning stoves, both making perfect spots to come together for a celebratory meal, with the option to dine alfresco in the private gardens too! You will also find ground-floor living in both of the properties, allowing for a flexible sleeping arrangement for those less able, letting you bring along the whole family on your memorable escape.

About the location

BEADNELL

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.
