Description

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.

Reviews

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,

Spent another great week at the Haven, facilities are just right, its open plan downstairs with a separate kitchen and large utility with access to the garage which was great for drying the dogs before entering the house (we used the garage door as our main way in) We have stayed here for the last 3 years and also stayed at the property next door, the area is great and we just hopped up and down the coast looking for new places to walk or stop for a coffee. Would recommend this cottage for its easy access to the beach and local area

Past Customer,

We booked the Haven for a last minute weeks stay at the end of the summer holidays and it didn’t dissapoint. The house was spotless, light, airy and location would be hard to beat. In walking distance to great rock pools, the bay and sand dunes, harbour, cafe, pub, shop..and the south facing garden was a little sun trap, would definately recommend...my only negative point would be that the website photos don’t do the house justice!

Past Customer,

Everything was OK (nearly perfect). Minor criticisms: 1. TV could be larger, 2. Garden (front and back) needs tidying 3. What is the point of the large planter in the middle of the drive? If it is to obstruct the drive,, then it is doing a good job!

Past Customer,

Very central and loved being near to the beach, especially for walks and beachcombing in the evening.

Past Customer,

Fantastic location across the road from a great little beach that combined sand pebbles and rock pools. The house was clean, comfortable and well equipped to cater for a family on holiday for a week. Beadnell is well located as a base to explore the local villages and further afield in Northumbria, including the Farne Islands, Holy Island etc. Beadnell, aside from the beach across the road from the house, has another larger sandy beach by the harbour. There is a village shop selling a wide range of food and souvenirs about a minute walk away from the house. We would unreservedly recommend this property and the location. Our only concern was the size of the good housekeeping bond. Returning the property as we found it, we were not charged anything.

Past Customer,

Amazing location with great views, however a number of maintenance issues needed addressing to bring the house up to the standard the price demands. Issues raised with letting agents so hopefully these will be rectified for future guests.

Past Customer,

This was part holiday part work as two of us were involved in a fossilling expedition further up the coast (both are academic palaeontologists). The weather was lovely, the house very accommodating and our young lurcher loved the beach and all the other dogs. Just sitting at the table you can watch the sea - I saw 3 dolphins one afternoon and the heron sits on the rocks daily looking for breakfast. Very impressed that the local Beadnell people go out onto the beach to pick up litter and keep the area looking lovely. The staynorthumbria staff were very helpful also.

Past Customer,

Given we had picked the coldest week in the year and we were snowed in, cut off and the boiler went on the blink it was a week not without its problems. We felt the agent did everything she possibly could to help remedy our problems - even providing some mince for our young lurcher who is on a raw diet when we couldn't get to the shops. The dog adored the sand and the snowdrifts and thanks to a local farmer and his snow plough we managed to get to the A1 to come home. We'd certainly go again - probably later in the year!

Past Customer,

Location

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.
