House | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 14
Affording the most stunning sea views and with private access directly onto a golden sandy beach speckled with rocky outcrops, Waters Edge is the quintessential family seaside holiday home. Rarely does a self-catering holiday property boast such close proximity to one of Northumberland’s most gorgeous beaches but not only is its location idyllic, the supreme quality throughout the accommodation is the epitome of luxury too! With six beautifully co-ordinated spacious bedrooms; four of them with pristine en-suite shower rooms, two twin rooms and a fabulous family room to comfortably sleep four, along with a sumptuous family bathroom with Spa bath. This prestigious property is perfect for that special gathering of family and friends or for those who simply prefer the finer things in life.
The stylish lounge is spacious and tastefully furnished with French doors giving a bright and airy ambience whilst watching the ever changing seascape and listening to the sea crashing against the shore line. The well-appointed, contemporary kitchen has solid oak units capped with granite work surfaces and a dining area where the sea view can mesmerise too....
So much thought and attention to detail is evident throughout – even a collection of wet suits are provided for those wishing to experience the North Sea! And for those times when indoor entertainment is preferred, an Xbox 360 will be appreciated.
Waters Edge is a newly built detached property uniquely positioned right on the sea front of the friendly coastal village of Beadnell, where the beach is right at the bottom of the garden so you can drop off to sleep listening to the waves breaking on the shore. The extensive sweep of golden sands Beadnell Bay is famous for is within walking distance; a popular location for those who enjoy an extensive range of quality water-sports, including sea kayaking, wind and kite surfing and scuba diving. And for those who prefer a little less exertion, this special location will also appeal to those who simply enjoy wandering along the seashore; listen to the lap of the waves against the shoreline and inhale the invigorating smells of the sea air…
The traditional fishing port of Seahouses is only two miles up the coastline with its good range of local shops including a Co-op and the Chinese takeaway and Indian restaurants are well worth a try. Watch the trawlers return to the harbour with their daily catch or take a boat trip to the Farne Islands – famous for bird sanctuaries and the seal colony – or set sail to test your own fishing skills! There are several golf courses, some of them at championship level, in the area and horse riding is available close by too.
A further 3 miles up the coastline is the picturesque village of Bamburgh, which lies snuggled in the shadow of its majestic castle, which commands the power and presence of the seasoned film set it regularly becomes.
The elegant Georgian town of Berwick, which straddles the salmon-rich river Tweed, is 17 miles north and the bustling market town of Alnwick with its own magnificent castle is the ancestral home to the Duke of Northumberland (and film location for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy!) also offering many facilities around 15 miles inland. Alnwick Garden is a popular visitor attraction with its grand cascade waterfall and restaurant set within the largest tree house in Europe!
Waters Edge is perfect for the gathering of families and friends who seek exclusive accommodation in a truly spectacular setting giving easy access to explore the twenty miles of Heritage coastline rightfully designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Northern England region
The Northumberland region
Northumberland is a hidden gem of totally unspoilt countryside and wonderful long stretches of pristine sandy beaches.If you want to breathe in clean country air this is the place for you, with miles of wide open spaces and magnificent views. The county has three sub regions; a coastline stretching some forty miles with quiet sandy beaches and pretty coastal harbour villages. Visitors will find dramatic rolling moorland and forests, much of which is National Park and to the south of the region is the famous Hadrian's Wall which runs coast to coast and is now a World Heritage Site.Apart from Northumberland's natural assets the county is steeped in history and has had a turbulent past which is characterised by more than its fair share of castles and ancient hill forts, some of which were built to repel Viking invaders. It was also the scene of the border wars and conflicts between the English and Scots in the 14th-16th century.
The Beadnell area
This beautiful accommodation is located as close to the sea as you could possibly get. The coastal village of Beadnell is one of the most popular holiday destinations along the north east coast. The beach is practically at the doorstep. Apart from golden sands, Beadnell Bay is a popular location for quality water-sport activities, including wind surfing, waterskiing and canoeing. There are also several unspoiled, coastal walks along the Heritage Coastline between Holy Island, Beadnell, Craster and Alnmouth for hikers, bird watchers and nature enthusiasts. A boat trip further along the Beadnell coast will take visitors to the beautiful Farne Islands, a premier destination for nature lovers.

"Fantastic house, fantastic location"
Just arrived back from a 4 night trip here with a large group of family & friends (10 adults, 4 children aged 7month - 5 year, and a dog). The house is beautiful and in a fantastic location, right on the beach, perfect for morning/evening walks with the kids/dog. First night there was made for the kids when we spotted a seal popping its head out the sea right in front of where we were sat in the back garden.
Very spacious house, even with such a large group. All rooms very nicely decorated and very clean/tidy upon arrival. Would highly recommend to anyone and have even discussed returning ourselves already! Luckily we had some nice weather and were able to have a couple bbq's out the back overlooking the beach.
Owners very helpful when booking and communicating with about arrival etc.
Thank you for the lovely review, we are so pleased that you and your extended family enjoyed your stay at watersedge! Hopefully next time you arrive you may see the dolphins that often swim past the garden! Many thanks Louise
