About Samantha Smith

Hi, my name is Samantha and I own 4 holiday homes with my mum, dad and brothers. I live in Morpeth Northumberland with my husband and 2 boys.

We have Shepherds Cottage, The Bothy in the Garden, Shepherds Lodge and Benthall House Ref: E17847

We are very fortunate as we are only 40 minutes from the cottages and love to stay there when we get the chance.

Samantha Smith purchased this house in 2014

Why Samantha Smith chose Northumberland Coast

We have three other holiday cottages in Beadnell and love the village and Beadnell Bay. Benthall House appealed to us as it is right on the sea front, only a minutes walk from the beach

What makes this house unique

The house is on the sea front with fabulous views from the upstairs balcony. It is walking distance to the beach and to the shop. There are also two pubs in the village with are within easy walking distance

Lovely property and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend at Benthall House to celebrate our son's birthday with 3 generations meeting up. The owner Sam met us on arrival and to show us around the property. She was extremely friendly and helpful and very kindly left us a delicious cake and bottle of wine which was much appreciated.

The property is very clean, comfortable and well equipped with stunning views of the coast. It is in a fantastic location with many interesting places to visit. We can recommend the Billy Shiels' Farne Island boat tour from Seahouses, it was amazing to get so close to see the seals.

A wonderful weekend in a great property and we look forward to visiting again as there is still so much to see.

Spacious, welcoming, clean and homely

  • 5 of 5

A group of seven of us plus a toddler have just stayed for the weekend. We were in the area for a friend's wedding and chose the house mainly due to location, but we would all happily visit again for a holiday in its own right.

The welcome from Steve was warm and friendly, and informative. The cake you very kindly left us was delicious and a real treat! All of the rooms were comfortable and very nice and the whole house was in great condition and clean. The kitchen was well-stocked with equipment and there was plenty of storage space. There were lots of nice touches (the books and board games were great!) and the location was fantastic - beautiful sea views from the lounge. It was a bit chilly to make use of the balcony, but what an amazing addition that would be in summer.

The house was warm and extremely comfortable for our group. I know the couple with the toddler appreciated the extra sitting space downstairs (they were up rather earlier than the rest of us!). All of our correspondence before the stay was prompt and very helpful.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property and hope we can make it back up for a visit at some point.

Lovely location and wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Met and showed around property by one of the owners. A homemade Cake to greet us was scrummy and wine and milk very welcome. Lots of space in the house with everything you could need for 6 adults 2 children and 4 dogs.2 min walk to a sandy beach and crashing wave beach straight opposite. Perfect. It was too cold to use the terrace even with the piles of throws left for guests to use. A shame as it looked ideal to have a sundowner whilst watching the sea.

I'd love to come back in the summer but recommend it for any time of year.

Fantastic Xmas

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to find a house for our family Christmas holiday on the stunning , unspoilt North East coast which was also 'dog friendly' however when we arrived at Benthall House it far surpassed our expectations. 

Benthall House was attractively & thoughtfully prepared for Christmas by Sam, the approachable & caring owner.  The accommodation is of a very good standard has a great layout for family/group leisure & fun.  The kitchen/dining/garden room works especially well.  The garden & driveway are very secure for children & dogs. 

Beautiful Beadnell Beach is right on the doorstep & along with other stunning beaches the area offers great restaurants, pubs, cafes & independent shops. 

All in all we enjoyed a wonderful family Christmas at Benthall House.

Great stay in fab location!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely week in Beadnell at Benthall House. Perfect family house for 5 adults and 3 children. Well equipped and in a great location, just a minute from the beach with great sea view . Old village centre a short walk away - 2 pubs close by for food and drinks. Great welcome from the owners who had provided basic provisions and a lovely cake to welcome us.

Location is excellent for exploring the area- we visited Seahouses, Banburgh castle, low newton and its lovely beach and dunes, Craster and Dunstaburgh castle, Alnwick Gardens and the lovely Cragside. If you get chance visit the Craster seafood restaurant- gorgeous !! Book though ...

All in all a great week- weather held out and would be glad to revisit.
