Holiday home Castle View is a delightful first floor apartment, just a short walk from Beadnell's vast sandy beach, and has fantastic views towards the coast and Dunstanburgh castle in the distance. The apartment sleeps up to four adults and one child in a family room with a double and a single and a bunk room. There is also a bathroom and an open plan living room with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Castle View provides an excellent base for exploring Northumberland or enjoying a family seaside holiday.
Area Situated beside one of the most beautiful stretches of Northumberland's Heritage Coastline, Beadnell Bay is an attractive and peaceful harbour village established in Saxon times as an important fishing village and a 'smuggler's haven'. Somewhat more peaceful now, this settlement still lists fishing as one of its major sources of income but is equally popular with holidaymakers who come to enjoy its pretty harbour and nearby sandy beaches. Within the village itself is a shop and two pubs which serve excellent food. The popular town of Seahouses is just over a mile away and has a further selection of shops, supermarkets and restaurants whilst the nearby Farne Islands offer an excellent spot for bird watching whilst the market town of Alnwick is just a short drive away.
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.

A nice apartment in a great coastal location, perfect for exploring the Northumberland coast.. Very close to local pubs and cafes, and only 5-10 walk from a big sandy beach, with lots to see and do nearby. Apartment was well furnished with all we needed for a week and good amenities. Could hear some noise from surrounding apartments due to the nature of the building, but nothing that disturbed us too much.

Location information in acurate,cleanliness could have been better..
- Mrs Turner, September 2020
Castle View was a perfect place to base ourselves for a week exploring the wonderful Northumbrian coastline.. Well equipped, cosy and very comfortable. Short walk to Beadnell Tower Hotel and Caister Arms , ate in both and food is good. Great walks along the coast , Seahouses to the north and Low &High Newton to the south.
Close to bus stop too so hoped in the 418 to explore further.
Everything we expected and more.

Most comfortable and generously equipped apartment, suitable for families.. Located at the edge of village, overlooking the pastures and dunes with Dunstanburgh Castle in the distance. Walking distance to the shop, harbour and beach. Very friendly communication with the owners.
- Mr Hadeler, September 2019
Nothing to add - Castle View met all our requirements in terms of comfort, facilities, cleanliness and location, which contributed to a very enjoyable holiday.. Many thanks to Mr & Mrs Millar

The booking experience was simple and the person I spoke to on the phone when booking was very friendly and helpful.. The cottage was great - fab location, comfortable, clean and well equipped - as advertised. Would definitely use Sykes and this cottage again.
- Miss Smith, July 2019
Visited as a family of four, found the flat absolutely wonderful for our needs.. Very comfortable, surprisingly well equipped kitchen and a great location overlooking the kids play park. Being on the first floor the views were spectacular and sitting on a night looking out over the coast and fields was heaven.
- Mrs Walkwell, June 2019
Particularly helpful to have a well-equipped kitchen - though a grater would not have gone amiss! Thanks for a lovely and comfortable stay.
Lovely well situated property in a quiet setting with great views from all aspects.. Short distance from the beach and from local shop and pub so a great base. The property is comfortable and well furnished with some nice touches in terms of fixtures, to give it a nautical theme. The enclosed garden is also a nice hidden gem and was perfect for relaxing with a book in between beach walks. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to book again in the future.
Lovely apartment, well equipped in a great location.. A short walk through a field (cattle and sheep) down to the fantastic beach and an even shorter walk to the Craster Arms! The hotel (Beadnell Towers?) will be open very soon and even closer than the pub.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay even though we had to cut it short because of Alex's work.
- Miss Morgan, May 2019
The apartment was very cosy and in a lovely area with lots of walks nearby.. Local shop and pub were good
Having milk in the flat when we arrived was just what we needed desperate for a cup of tea
Lovely stay again at Castleview .. The apartment is so well equipped and warm that even on a bad day you can feel completely at home. Luckily for us the weather was superb so Castleview works as a brilliant base to travel inland or up and down the coast.
Certainly won't be our last visit here
Very quiet location ,ideal for touring the local attractions and just a short walk from a beautiful beach..
A really good place to stay for Northumberland.. the only draw back you could hear the people down stairs moving about
A very positive experience.. The flat was beautfully furnished and had all the amenities that we could wish for. We had all the information needed before we went.
It was everything we thought it would be.. Immaculately kept, bright, clean and comfortable. The location was perfect for us, and Beadnell is such a nice place

Lovely holiday flat in a fab village with stunning views. Ideal to amble down to the local pubs or sea front and/or use as a base to visit local attractions.
- Mrs Smith, May 2017
There was no mention of the access being up an exterior metal staircase, this was a problem with our dog who had to be carried up.. Many dogs do not like this kind of staircase.
Oven gloves would have been an advantage as using a tea towel with hot items was not really safe.
We were very happy with the flat otherwise and thoroughly enjoyed our stay
- Mrs Workman, September 2016
