One of only 30 or so holiday cottages which have uninterrupted views overlooking the sea in this beautiful village of Beadnell on the North Northumberland Coast. The Haven is owned by descendants of one of the oldest families in the area and is a much loved holiday cottage. Light and airy, with neutral decor and stripped wood floors, tasteful stripped pine furniture and comfortable lounge furniture, quality beds and bed linens, the cottage offers very spacious accommodation for 4 people. We welcome families, friends holidaying together, or interest groups, though sorry the house is not equipped to meet the needs of divers. Birdwatchers, walkers, golfers and those generally interested in exploring the beautiful Northumberland Coast are well catered for here, and Beadnell is central enough to explore Northumberland's much undiscovered interior as well, being only 45 minutes from the National Park, 30 minutes from Berwick upon Tweed and 20 minutes from Alnwick. WiFi is also available.

All very good. Can’t wait to come again

Mrs Lorraine M,

Really lovely location. The kitchen is small, it everything needed is available. Nice touches, fluffy towels and squashy pillows

Past Customer,

Booked for a relaxing break with our 2 dogs wanted a beach location which was accessible and we were not dissappinted

Past Customer,

This is our third stay at this house and it is very suited to our needs. Off-season the lovely beach (thanks to teams of local volunteers who litter-pick regularly) is almost empty and great for walks. We come up to meet with old friends, do some palaeontology work and relax. The house is comfortable and well appointed - and very warm (slightly too warm for us). Charlie our whippet Bedlington cross likes the familiarity of coming to the same house and settles very well. We find the people at StayNorthumbria very friendly and helpful.

Past Customer,

The Haven is a warm cosy cottage with the added benefit of an open log fire. The views are stunning and the location perfect.

Past Customer,

House was warm and welcoming. Windows at the front of the house need attention as they let in water quite badly. Also the roof over the sitting room door leaks. The flower bed/block in the driveway - very annoying!

Past Customer,

well appointed

Past Customer,


Beadnell is a small village on the North Northumberland coast situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Once thriving as a fishing village and making its mark as a centre for the trade of lime and grain, its main thrust today is tourism, although some of the original fishing families still run boats from the pretty harbour over which stands guard the now redundant lime kilns.
The village has a pub, a hotel, both of which serve good ale and food, a post office / convenience store and a small cafe serving delightful offerings like huge cream filled meringues and cream teas and hot broth on colder autumn days.
Beadnell is a great base - it is steeped in history - just get talking to a local and they'll exude the tales of fisher folk, farmers and the herring lasses that followed the fleet down from Scotland in the hay day of the herring and the infamous Kipper, the Border Reivers, the Scots and the Vikings and the battles that made northern england.
There's the tranquility too, beautiful expanses of unspoilt beach, ideal for water sports and the village has its own launch facilities for leisure craft. Only 2 miles north is the busier village of Seahouses from where you can take trips to the Farne Islands, sample locally made ice cream and treat yourself to Fish and Chips whilst watching the days activities in the harbour. Or walk or cycle along the coastal path North and South, visit Castles, gardens, and find out about our religious heritage. Sample good local produce from local suppliers and marvel at the works of local artists in one of the galleries dotted along the coast.
