The 1860s Old Vicarage at Beadnell is a large stunning, stone property in a private setting, surrounded by its own woodland, garden and paddock on the edge of the popular coastal village of Beadnell.  Ideally situated on Northumberland’s Heritage Coast for accessing the area’s most popular attractions, the house is a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach as well as village shop, high quality pubs and restaurants (including the recently renovated Beadnell Towers hotel) and less than a 5 minute drive to the nearest golf course. The property is in the ownership of descendants of 18th century. Beadnell landowner John Wood (who built the Harbour and resided at Beadnell Hall), and Thomas Wood Craster (High Sheriff of Northumberland in 1852), whose family name and crest adorns the Craster Arms Hotel/Restaurant.

Offering traditionally decorated accommodation, the Vicarage welcomes you via a gated gravel drive, to a gravel parking area. Through the courtyard door is a walled courtyard providing quality teak furniture, barbecue, and the old stable providing secure storage for leisure equipment. Entering the property through the flagstone floor kitchen with "antique Aga", downstairs is a cloakroom, drawing room with open fire and 40"+ TV with Freeview and DVD, a formal dining room and study. Upstairs on the 1st floor are 4 bedrooms - 1 King double, 1 King double with wash basin, 1 King double ensuite bathroom (shower over bath), 1 twin bedroom and 2 further updated family bathrooms, both with shower over bath. Up on the 2nd floor is a charming further double bedroom (can be opened for an additional charge), adjacent to the newly redecorated games room with table tennis table and American style pool table.

The property sleeps up to 8 people, and the ground floor as well as the games room have been recently redecorated and fitted with new fixtures and games tables. 

Outside, the property stands in its own grounds and guests are welcome to use the enclosed courtyard, the front/side lawn and the woodland arboretum. Note that the front paddock is "out of bounds" as it is let for grazing.

Fantastic property- great for families with a dog! Perfect.

Stephen C,

It was a beautiful property and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to stay again at some point.

Mr B W,

We spent an eventful and enjoyable week in the Old Vicarage. We all felt it was a real privilege to to be able to stay there. The house has been beautifully maintained and has a real sense of being a happy family home rather than a rental. The furniture and the decorative style is all in keeping with a a traditional vicarage and we all delighted in looking in every nook and cranny of the house. The beds were super comfortable and the provision of all extras like soap, shampoo and loo roll really made it an easy stay. The dining and and cooking equipment was exceptional.I had ordered a Tescos delivery which arrived on time so we were all set. There is a well stocked village shop 5 minutes if we needed anything. And Seahouses, 5 mins in the car has a CoOp and other shops. The house is 5 minutes from the sea. Glorious walks along the beach , visits to Lindisfarne, Bamburgh, Warkworth Castle all made it a brilliant week. Fabulous fish restaurant- The Jolly Fisherman Inn at Craster was our favourite eating place. We were there during the recent storms and some tree limbs came down on the drive. The management were superb and sorted the problem very quickly. Noe of us wanted to leave the house, it was wonderful!
