From: €330 weekly 4
Bay View Beach Cottage Self-Catering
Holiday home A first floor apartment in a quiet setting, with some views over Beadnell's famous sweeping bay, in an exceptional location just 100 yards from the huge sandy beach. Bay View has been decorated, furnished and equipped to offer cosy, quality family accommodation.

Area Established in Saxon times, Beadnell is a charming harbour village set on a wonderful stretch of the Northumberland Coast, an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, popular with birdwatchers. Beadnell Bay itself has a Blue Flag award and is one of the prettiest beaches in the area. The town of Seahouses is close to the beach and with two welcoming pubs and shops and restaurants close by it is, unsurprisingly popular with locals and holidaymakers alike. The Farne Islands are a short boat trip away, as are both Bamburgh and Alnwick Castles. The former is a huge bird sanctuary, created by St Cuthbert, who along with St Aidan, was one of the first monks to bring Christianity to Britain. That heritage is also upheld at the holy island of Lindisfarne, which can be reached via the causeway at Beal (depending on the tides).
Region Northumberland is a heady combination of fishing villages, market towns, sandy beaches, magnificent castles and historic Hadrian's Wall, tied together by beautiful countryside and abundant wildlife.

This is the first time I have had to do a negative review on a Sykes property and I don't do it lightly.. This property needs a deep clean some surfaces ok but still felt the need to clean again in view of current situation. Lightshades covered in thick dust, extractor fan in bathroom and top of shower, fridge needed a good wipe, carpet in lounge and hall area has large bumpy areas, does not fit tight. Some walls need redecorating. All in all needs a thorough clean and some updating.Yes this could have been mentioned to the owner but we did not want the upheaval of a deep clean whilst on holiday.
Had a wonderful time at Bay View cottage Beadnell ,we were met on arrival by the owner Christopher who gave us a tour of the apt and explained how everything worked, the cottage itself was lovely and cosy with amazing views of the sea ,Beadnell Bay and the sand dunes.. Wanted to book again for next year but Bay View was fully booked , Christopher is really friendly and makes you feel at home nothing is too much trouble.
Would definitely recommend had a totally positive experience

3rd holiday visit to Beadnell and 1st time at Bay View flat.. Flat was home from home, well equipped with good quality fittings and furnishings. Settee, armchairs and very large bed really comfortable. It's a stone's throw from the lovely sandy bay. Would happily stay in this flat in the future. Very approachable owner too.
Mrs Rowley-smith, September 2020
The owner met us and was on hand but not intrusive.. There were added little extras such as some milk and biscuits and crisps which were very welcome. The property had a very well equipped kitchen which was great as we ate in most of the time. The beds were comfortable with good quality bedding. The property has parking and is very near the beach and harbour. The kitchen had things like kitchen roll, washing up liquid, tea towels and lots of other things that came in handy.

In a good place to visit other areas, house well equipped with everything you would need, excellent
Mr Dawson, March 2020
We had a great stay, everything you could think of was provided, even the additional request of a high chair and cot.. The owner was easy to contact, very friendly and took the time to show us around to explain everything.
The location was also great, in a nice village with a beautiful beach a couple of minutes away.
Mr Alexander, February 2020
A spacious, well equipped apartment in an excellent location for beach walks.. A modern spacious kitchen with more than enough utensils including a dishwasher, which was handy.
Large open plan living/dining room. Th Smart TV works through the internet, so you’ve got Netflix, don’t forget your login details.Good strength WiFi. Bathroom has a shower over the bath. The shower pressure was quite low. The master bedroom has a comfortable massive king size bed and loads of wardrobe and drawer space. The twin room just has a set of drawers for storage.
The two village pubs are about a 20 minute level walk away. We had a good meal at Beadnell Towers.
We contacted and met the owner (Christopher) on two or three occasions during our stay. He’s a very approachable and helpful gentleman who showed us around the apartment on arrival and also offered advice and information in response to a few questions we had.
Would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to stay there again in the future.
Mr Horton, December 2019
A great well equipped holiday apartment, close to the beach with a lovely pub within walking distance..
Miss Towell, November 2019
This was a lovely holiday flat - very comfortable and well equipped and in a great location just around the corner from the beach with sea views..
What a great place to stay.. Chris was so welcoming. You walk in the door and just know you are going to love it, so clean and tidy and has everything you could possibly need. You can even see the sea from 2 rooms. So close to a wonderful beach with plenty of walks. I would recommend this place and hope to return next year.
Bay View was just like a Home from Home, everything you needed was there.. Comfortable Lounge, Kitchen with it's Fridge Freezer, Microwave, Washing Machine, Dish Washer and lovely view out to the Bay. Comfortable Bedroom with it's Kingsize Bed, Nice! The second Bedroom with Two Single Beds.
Excellent location, so close to a Lovely Sandy Beach and perfectly placed for visiting places of Interest in the Surrounding Area. A Return Visit is certainly on the cards.
The photos of the property didn't do it justice! There was everything we needed and it was in a great location for many of the attractions on the Northumbrian coast. It was really comfortable and we very much appreciated the new super king size mattress. On top of everything, Chris was a great landlord! Mick and Trish
Brilliant location.. Rocky shore with pools 100 yards on one side and very long sandy beach 100 yards on other.
Very clean and well equipped flat. Private and off road parking.
Grandkids loved it there.
Location was great, flat was clean and extremely well equipped - probably the best we’ve ever had and we’ve stayed in tens of holiday rentals over the years.. Would like to have been able to open windows more than just a couple of inches but as the weather was not too hot it wasn’t really a problem. Mattresses and sofa were a little on the saggy side for my tastes but that’s just me.
Very nice landlord who made us feel very welcome.. We had a lovely relaxing holiday in comfortable accommodation within easy walking distance of the sea. A lovely village that we have visited often.
Excellent spot, great new kitchen and well looked after by Christopher.. Would really recommend and hope to be back soon
Comfortable accommodation in a lovely location..
Lovely flat/apartment - very clean and well equipped, the kitchen had everything you need to self cater.. Fantastic position so close to the wonderful Beadnell beach. Hope to come back soon.
The flat was great with access to the beach a few minutes away.. It was very comfortable and the kitchen in particular had everything you could possibly need. The storage heaters worked well and the flat was always warm.
Great location, only a two minute walk to a beautiful beach and close to loads of amazing places to visit.. This apartment was very clean and well equipped, made life so much easier.
I highly recommend and would definitely consider returning.
This property suited our needs for the places we wished to visit.. A very comfortable property.
Fantastic location, right next to the beach. There was an excellent standard of cleanliness and range of items and amenities at the property.
Great location. The cottage was very well equipped. Lovely balcony. Very close to beach. Quiet and peaceful. Would recommend and wouldn't hesitate to return.
The location of the property was perfect - literally 3 minutes to the beach. The property was cosy, spacious, very clean and well equipped.
Great place to stay! Altogether, a wonderful apartment. Had a great feeling about the place - roomy, quiet and peaceful - although that could be the time of year. The proximity to the beach is great.
The location was fantastic - only 2 minutes from the beach. A very cosy and comfortable apartment with everything we could need.
The flat was bright, spacious and well furnished. The kitchen was the best equipped we've ever had and the beach was just a minute's walk away, over the dunes.
The owner was extremely helpful on our arrival helping with luggage etc We appreciated the wine milk left in the fridge. Very comfortable chairs in the sitting room well appointed. Ideally situated apartment, very quiet area. Helped make our holiday very enjoyable.
The apartment was very well furnished, especially the sitting room, and we felt at home during our stay.
It is a lovely area, very quiet. We enjoyed being able to walk to the nearby beach. It was only a short drive to amenities at Seahouses and Bamburgh! We would certainly recommend and return to this property.
We have been to this property before, and rebooked because we love the location and the apartment.
It was in good condition; new bathroom, new carpets in bedroom, and nicely furnished. It is in a nice position with partial sea views. Good for visiting places. A nice quiet restful holiday.
First floor apartment with sea views from the balcony. Very close to the beach and a short walk to the small harbour of Beadnell with its famous lime kilns. There is a small grocery store and fish and chip shop a 15 min walk away (limited opening hours), but quite adequate. Seahouses is a short drive with Bambrough a little further.
The apartment was well equipped,spacious and comfortable. There is a pub and hotel which serves food in the village centre. Directions for collecting the key could have been clearer, but that's my only complaint. I'd certainly stay there again.
The location was excellent, with 2 sea views from the balcony! The small harbour and lovely sandy beach were only a short stroll away.
It was just as the recommendations said, lovely and quiet in the most beautiful location. An excellent holiday in a really lovely apartment, loved the balcony. So appreciated the lovely wine and the milk!
Lovely location, quiet, warm and comfortable, we thoroughly enjoyed it.
The apartment was in an excellent position, just two minutes walk from the beautiful sandy bay at Beadnell. It was clean, warm and very comfortable.

We have taken breaks in Northumberland for many years and in the Beadnell area or village for the last 7. This was THE ideally located place that we have stayed at. Honestly 2 to 3 minutes from one of the best beaches in the UK. This property is very, very comfortable and well presented. One very short flight, with a view of the beach from the living room and balcony. All very peaceful. We rarely go anywhere twice but will certainly go back there if available next year.The walk along the beach, via Low Newton to Craster is about a 2 and half journey if fit and well worth it....there are buses back from Craster if needed!
Honestly cannot fault it, as for weather....well, it is the UK...so what if it rains, it is stunning countryside!

Well appointed, clean, very comfortable and ideally located, 2 to 3 minutes from one of the best beaches in Northumberland.
We love Beadnell and the position of the property is fantastic. It is quiet and comfortable and has everything we need. This was our second visit and I am sure we will be back.
This is the third time we have stayed at Bayview and would thoroughly recommend it. It is quiet and is ideally placed for walks on the beach and for trips out. The property was well equipped with everything we needed making it a real 'home from home'. I have already recommended it to friends who are interested in booking.
Lovely flat in a great location. The flat was comfotable and had everything we needed.
The beach was very close by. Beadnell is small but had a shop, a pub, restaurant and a fish and chip shop.
There are plenty of places to visit nearby especially if you like castles. The only thing that could have made it better was the weather.
We really enjoyed our holiday and the location is fantastic. We've put this property and location in our Must Return to holiday destination!
Location is excellent. Flat is good and very clean.
Our accommodation exceeded our expectations, very comfortable, relaxing, clean and very well equipped and to boot,it was situated in a lovely quiet and picturesque bay within a short drive of lots of wonderful family attractions.
The apartment was excellent. Everything was of a very high standard and very well equipped. One of the best places that we have stayed in. A home from home.
The location was fantastic, plenty of things to do within 10-15 miles. Beautiful beach on doorstep and holiday cottage was in a very pleasant and quiet location. Cottage itself was bright and airy and lovely to stay in.
Location - close to the beach and attractions. Lounge area very comfortable. Kitchen very well equipped.
Enough drying space for wet weather gear. We would definitely stay again.
The flat was very clean and tidy with more than enough equipment, books and entertainment. Very well appointed and homely. A stone's throw from good beach and highly recommended.
Really nice, warm and comfortable apartment with a sheltered balcony. It's just beside the lovely big flat beach. Very quiet. Particularly appreciated the super king sized bed.
The flat was very comfortable. It felt like someone loved it and cared for it very well. The kitchen was so well equipped I hadn't ever seen one like it in a holiday let. I love the North East Coast and the beaches are just beautiful.
The apartment was clean, comfortable, well equipped, had a new bathroom recently. Handy for exploring the Northumerland coast and towns. Would stay here again.
Easy access to nearby towns like Bamburgh, quiet place good for relaxing. Liked the games provided in the apartment.
One of the best equipped properties we've stayed in. Very convenient location for exploring Northumberland. Lovely quiet village and the apartment is extremely comfortable and close to the beach.
The apartment was all you could wish for. Very clean, comfortable and modern. It was only about 50 yards from a lovely beach. Good food in the local pub in the village which was a short walk across the field and a bit longer walk on the way back via the road. Very central for all sites along the coast, Seahouses, Bamburgh Castle, Farne Islands, Alnwick Castle and Gardens and Berwick-on-Tweed. Did all these attractions but not much driving. Would recommend this to anyone.
This is an excellent property, fantastic location and amazing views.
The flat was excellent, very clean and tidy and everything that you could wish for. The beach was very close and that was wonderful, very easy to get to with no main roads to cross. The village with pubs serving food were about 10 mins walk away, closer if you walked over the field. I would recommend this place to anyone.
We really enjoyed staying in this well kept, spacious, welcoming apartment in such a wonderful location. Weather was great this week and it was one of our best holidays yet. We hope to return.
Bay View was in a beautiful setting right by the beach, very comfortable, spacious, and spotlessly clean.
We had a brilliant time during our holiday. The apartment was very close to the beach. We did not go anywhere. We were at the beach everyday. The apartment was very cosy, clean and had everything we needed. The washer/dryer was a great bonus as the kids got wet everyday playing at the beach. We will definitely come back.
As it was our first stay in Northumbria we were very pleased with accomodation and the area. Ideal base to visit different places. Very well equipped apartment everything you need. Lots of information leafets. Short distance from beach. Ideal for a family. So many castles to visit. Will definitley return for another holiday.
Good weather enabling us to go on long walks every day.
A very good spot and the beach cove was very child friendly.
The property was close to the beach.
We were very pleased with the property, it felt like home after a short time and I didn't want to leave.
Beadnell is an ideal location for exploring the Northumberland coast and beyond.
We felt very much at home there and found that our every need was catered for. We shall definitely come again.
Bamburgh Castle is a must. Good food at The Craster Arms Inn, Beadnell. Nice quiet location.
This was the second time we've been to Bay View and found it an excellent holiday flat. The fact that the beach was so close and the comfortable accommodation really made the 2 weeks one of the best holidays we've ever had.
The location to the beach and harbour was exceptional. The property was comfortable and homely.
We enjoyed the sightseeing eg Bambugh Castle Alwnick Castle and Gardens and lots of other great days out. The evening meal we had at the Craster Arms Inn was lovely. Seahouses is a very nice town to visit and from there we took a boat ride to the Farne Islands which is a must.
Most enjoyable holiday in a lovely place.
The accommodation was really good and more than met with expectations. It was terrific value for money. The Northumberland area is ideal and fortunately we had exceptionally good weather. Beadnell is a great base for enjoying the coastal areas.
The location, the village, the friendliness of the people, the beaches, the puffins, the otter at one of the nearby nature reserves, Alnwick garden, the Craster Arms, the glorious weather. The apartment was brilliant and spotlessly clean. There was so much to do in the locality that we didn't get through half of our list. We both felt that this was the best holiday we have ever had.
The Ship at Seahouses serves excellent food.
Mr Mrs Poole
Fabulous location. Very spacious and well equipped apartment. Lovely welcome pint of milk, local newspaper and bottle of wine. Good private parking and lovely and quiet- we were the only people in the block.
The location is great a minute from the beach. The flat has everything you need and is excellent.
Everything exceeded our expectations; the apartment, the beach, Beadnell and Seahouses.
Mr Mrs Woodfield
Location superb. We walked on the beach every morning. Apartment is perfect. It was lovely to have breakfast on the sunny balcony.
A tranquil property that more than lives up to its description.
The accommodation was first class, very comfortable, homely and very well-equipped. The position was also excellent, handy for the beach and local amenities.
The accommodation was great. Clean and very presentable. The closeness to the beach was ideal with a six year old. We have already been recommending Bay View to our friends! A great spot for exploring the locality!
Location to the beach is fantastic! Apartment is well-equipped.
It was like a home from home.
Very safe position for beach. Property well located.
We hope one day to come again.
Very comfortable accomodation. Very fully equipped. High quality of furnishing, kitchen appliances, and TV/audio. Many thoughtful touches.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
A modern, well-furnished accommodation with a sea view and only 2 minutes from the beach.
The flat was close to the sea and in a good location to use as a base to get to different areas.
A lovely apartment in a superb location.
Accommodation very well equipped ideally located for the beach. Northumberland is a great place to holiday, lots of interesting places to visit and plenty of virtually empty,sandy beaches.
The property was a delight. We were very touched to find the owner had left us a pint of milk, the local newspaper and even a bottle of wine. It all helped towards us having a lovely relaxing week in a beautiful part of the world. I would have no hesitation in recommending the property to anyone and once again Sykes have come up trumps.
This was the third time we have stayed at Bay View. I am sure we will come again.
It was a beautiful flat, so clean and there was everything you could think of provided! So close to the beach. The added welcome touch of a newspaper, milk and wine were much appreciated! Please thank the owner for a fantastic place, we hope to visit again!
We knew exactly what we were getting as the apartment was just as described. It is in a lovely location and the standard of the property was extremely high. We were warmly welcomed with a bottle of wine and a pint of milk! Everything was spotlessly clean and there were lots of videos, books, games and information leaflets to guide us along.
A great location, very well equipped, a comfortable apartment.
Excellent location and very well equipped.
The location is excellent, especially for children, since there are no roads to cross to get to the sea.
Plenty of room for children to play safely at rear of property. Near to sea and clean sandy beach. The Craster Arms serve good food, reasonably priced, and it is children friendly, they also have a large outside eating area. Alnwick gardens and tree house, and other beautiful clean beaches are within easy reach.
This was our first visit to Northumberland. The beaches, countryside and attractions all exceeded our expectations. Bay view provided a really comfortable home from home at the end of each day.
We had a very good week. The weather was fine and this enabled us to spend time on the nice beach close by and also visit some of the many beautiful places quite close by.
Beadnell is an excellent centre for touring Northumberland. The flat was very comfortable and clean. There were particular touches which made us feel welcome - milk in the 'fridge, coffee and tea available, a local newspaper and a welcoming postcard.
Clean, comfortable, excellent location for the beach.
The first impression on entering the property was how clean to was. A credit to the owner! The beach is lovely and clean and very easily accessible. The holiday was very enjoyable. Very home from home as we had everything we needed in the property.
Highly recommended. Very well equipped property and well thought out in case of rainy days, books videos etc. An excellent cottage.
This is a great cottage, the best equipped we have ever been to. A sandy beach is 100 yards in one direction and a rocky beach 100 yards in the other directions. It is a fantastic location particularly for anyone with kids of 'rock pooling' age. We hope to go back again.
Close proximity to a lovely beach which could also be seen from the balcony.
House was clean, warm, well equiped and had lots of hot water on demand. We will probably book this house again.
Mr Mrs Taylor
Very quiet with places to walk to enjoy the coastline and countryside along with the wide range of wildlife and places of interest.
It felt like being in a home rather than a holiday apartment. The closeness to the beach was great. The surrounding area was very beautiful (Lindisfarne, Farne islands, Bamburgh, Beadnell Bay). Northumberland will definitely get a revisit from us at some point in the future!
Recommend BARTER BOOKS at Alnwick. Huge second hand book shop with well organised display system.
Excellent location for beach and a quiet holiday.The flat was exceptionally equipped and very clean. The personal welcome note was most appreciated.
We found this property was very well equipped, more than any other we have used. There is so little traffic !
The fabulous walks along the beaches, the good food from the New Beadnell Towers (?) Hotel. My husband is intolerant to gluten and the hotel chef was very helpful and understood the difficulty completely, which we appreciated very much as not all chefs are aware of the hidden dangers.
Great location for beach walking. Recommend visiting the Chillingham Wild Cattle - very informative. Good food at the New Beadnell Towers Hotel.
Excellent location - close to the beach. Good food at the Beadnell Arms Hotel. The weather was good (surprisingly!)
