I have spent holidays in Beadnell all my life and so too have our children and now our grandchildren.
Helen purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Helen chose Beadnell
The peace and tranquility of North Northumberland make it a truly special place to visit. The opportunity to buy and thoroughly renovate this 1930's property was a dream come true!
What makes this Cottage unique
Within a minute, you can walk onto the beach and lose all sense of the humdrum of everyday life. There is so much living space in the house and the sea views from both living rooms and kitchen are fantastic.

Fantastic property in an amazing location
Everything you require is here , perfectly presented , stunning location
Fabulous house - perfect location.
What can I say except we had the most fantastic week! The house is just stunning with everything you could possibly need and more. Beautifully furnished and for a family with young children, loads of toys and games to keep them amused. For the grown-ups, there is also plenty to do, even on a rainy day. We were very lucky with the weather, sunny all week with just one morning of rain. The local shop in Beadnell is right opposite the house, very convenient for those last minute goodies! There are lots of lovely walks - it's only 2 miles to Seahouses where you'll find shops and plenty of nice places to eat. There is a beautiful children's playground in the village which has picnic tables, ideal if you don't want to walk too far and the pub in the village is great for Sunday lunch. All in all, the ideal place for a family holiday and as a base for exploring Northumberland. The only problem for me is that it's a long drive from home or I'd be there more often! That said, it was well worth the journey, we all loved it. Thank you for letting us experience your beautiful home.
What a fantastic place
This place is amazing, the house itself is perfectly situated for views and local amenities. The bedrooms with their crisp white linen and most comfortable beds ever, the lounge/kitchen/games room were equipped with everything you might need and both spacious and homely. The top floor view was superb and we all enjoyed the telescope. The terraces were little sun traps and the small garden was just enough to have Al fresco lunch.
The owner has put a lot of thought and time into this property from the little instruction notes dotted around the place to the beautiful fresh cut flowers in every room. I would definitely book this property again and intend to do so soon.
Had a wonderful weekend in this stunning property. The extra touches offered by owner ensured we had a fab celebration too! I love this property and would love to stay again!
Great break. Lovely welcome pack. Beautiful place to watch the changing moods of the North Sea.
Glad you enjoyed the house and its beautiful location!
Well equipped house, beautiful part of the country
The house is Art Deco and beautifully presented. The kitchen was very well equipped and as six friends together we like to cook and eat in. We did some lovely walks from the house and had a great time.
Glad you enjoyed your break!
Special interest holidays: The house is particularly suitable for large groups and families. The house is so close to the beach and rock pools that the whole week could be spent enjoying these! Its close proximity to Seahouses, Bamburgh Castle and Dunstanburgh Castle Golf Courses make it a marvellous place for golfers to stay.
