  • "The nest is a perfect place for a holiday on the Northumberland coast."

    Beadnell village has good places for dining. The house was comfortable and nicely decorated, with plenty of home comforts.

  • "Stayed at the Nest as a family of four and the location for us was perfect to explore Northumberland as well as close to all the amenities in Beadnell."

    5 minute walk to the playground, 5 minutes to the pubs, 5 minutes to the pebble beach which is great for dog walking or crabbing. Around a 10 minute walk to Beadnell bay. Living space was fine as a family of 4 with young children (might be a bit small for older children). Garden was great over looking the horse's field. Only downsides being no dishwasher (but doesn't say this is provided in details anyway) and a bit of dusting was required.

  • "Lovely small house in a quiet road with a sunny garden overlooking a field with horses."

    Very comfortable and clean , fresh and modern decoration. Everything we needed provided. Great position near to the coast and easy access to main routes. Lots of excellent attractions nearby. The coast is stunning here and has the best beaches and walks. Pub, cafe, small shop and fish and chip van in the village but only a couple of miles to Seahouses with many more facilities. Useful bus service. What more could you ask for?

  • "The property is excellent for a week."

    We (a couple) found the decor really cheerful, warm, welcoming and friendly, and the kitchen equipment and shower very good. The car space would begin to feel cramped after a fortnight. The location is an excellent centre for coast based touring (we also got to Alnwick and Cragside). The only negatives to our stay were outside the control of the property; the neighbour in the other half of the semi smoked outside and the smoke came in through the garden window so we had to close it; and once or twice their loud talking kept us awake till gone midnight. (The only maintenance item we noticed was the shaver socket in the bathroom cabinet, which we couldn't make work.)

  • "Very clean and comfortable cottage, with nice garden."

    Just a short walk to two beaches and a village store. Pub and tearoom nearby. Excellent location for visiting the beautiful Northumberland coast.

  • "We had a lovely stay at the Nest."

    The house is bright, comfortable and well equipped with everything you could possibly need during a holiday. The garden is a delight with sparrows and robins coming to feed, and a field behind with two beautiful horses. Beadnell was a good base for exploring the Northumberland coast and beyond. We'd be delighted to stay at the Nest again in the future.

    The bedding provided in double room was inadequate and not fit for purpose The cottage was otherwise perfect Unfortunately as a good nights sleep is part of the experience the quality of bedding provided did not provide enough comfort

    Dear Sandra, The temperature had dropped suddenly and so the warmer duvet should have been available for your stay. We normally have favourable comments about the comfort of the bed /bedding and so were disappointed that this was not your experience. I can only apologise that the winter duvet was not on the bed but was pleased to hear that everything else on the cottage was perfect for your stay. Kind Regards, Julie Property Owner

    Everything was as advertised and high standard of cleanliness and maintenance. It was really nice receiving a pre holiday call from the owner explaining where everything was in the house. Also Julie gave us some good recommendations about where to visit in the area. We are highly likely to return.

    There was a vase full of fresh cut roses on the table when we arrived as well as much appreciated tea, coffee, milk and biscuits to revive us after a long journey. The house is ideally situated for strolling along the nearby beach and for visiting the many interesting attractions in the surrounding area. We have no hesitation in recommending “The Nest” .

    Dear Philip, Thanks for your lovely feedback regarding your holiday at 'The Nest' - you're comments are much appreciated and we are delighted to hear you had a good time. We look forward to hopefully seeing you again in the future. Kindest Regards, Julie & Alan Property Owner

  • "The property is in a cul de sac so very quiet; it is full of other rental properties and holiday lets."

    It is walking distance to the beach and it had everything that is needed for a short stay; the garden was well kept too and the location is good to visit the coast. It could have been cleaner as there was dust around etc. and the kitchen pans could be replaced.

    Dear Emanuela, I'm pleased to hear that you had everything needed for a comfortable stay. Thanks you for your feedback, your comments have been noted and will be followed up. Our previous guests have commented on the high standard of cleanliness of the property and this is a high priority for us. Kindest Regards, Julie Property Owner

  • "A fabulous base for exploring, with the owner offering a friendly warm welcome to Beadnell."

    It’s clear lots of thought has gone into ensuring The Nest has everything required; we had everything we could have needed during our stay. A very short walk to the beach and only 1 minute drive from the beautiful coastal road, The Nest is in a great location. The description of the cottage is very accurate and honest, the second room is more suited to children (or one adult) and provides comfy beds for them. There is more than enough available storage in this cottage, meaning we were able to unpack and feel settled immediately. We really enjoyed our 4 nights here, enhanced even further by the lovely little garden and the neighbouring horses coming to say hello.

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.
