Reviews

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 only drawback is the wifi. The house is advertised as having Wifi but the router connection was very intermittent and the speed was extremely slow. It was very unreliable and I would urge the management to make this very clear in the blurb. 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!

Past Customer,

We stayed at The Vicarage in Beadnell. It was a comfortable traditional house and perfect for a family get together over Christmas. There was plenty of room with 2 lounges, games room and spacious bedrooms. The kitchen with the Aga was cosy and very well equipped. The formal dining room was perfect for Christmas lunch (though the candle ban was a little disappointing but understandable). The location was superb with a short walk to a pub, cafe and shop as well as the spectacular beach. We had a wonderful holiday and I would be happy to return again. Stay Northumberland were particularly helpful via email and phone.
