The village of Beadnell is located on the North Northumberland coastline, 2 miles south of Seahouses, 12 miles north of Alnwick and 5 miles south of Bamburgh. It is well known for it's wide, dune sheltered sandy beaches and superb scenery along with its picturesque villages overlooked by magnificent castles.
The historic village of Beadnell lies just a few miles east of the main A1 that links Edinburgh with Newcastle-upon-Tyne, but despite this, it remains off the beaten track and as a result has not been spoilt by over-development.
Beadnell is a peaceful village but benefits from a couple of good pubs, offering excellent food, an excellent fish and chip shop and general store. The village provides an ideal central point from which to discover this fascinating and picturesque coastline.

Northern England region
The Sands Cottage is just five minutes from the sea in the remote Northumbrian fishing village of Beadnell.
Beadnell is just 12 miles north of Alnwick (go there to see the castle and Alnwick Garden), 5 miles south of Bamburgh where you won't be able to miss the most spectacularly located castle anywhere.
It is perched high on the rocks overlooking the sand dunes and the North Sea. Seahouses is just a short 2 miles away where you can get all your provisions, eat great fish and chips or book boat trips to the Farne Islands where you will see seals and puffins (May, June & July).
Turn inland and you'll see even more castles (Northumberland has more castles than anywhere else in England) at your disposal and access to one of England's last open wildernesses; the Northumberland National Park, (officially England's most tranquil place and, it is so dark, it is the best location to stargaze - there is an observatory in Kielder Forest). The dramatic Northumbrian hills and sheltered valleys stretch from Hadrian's Wall to the Scottish border.
If you feel the urge to visit a city then Newcastle is only just over an hour away and even Edinburgh can be done in a day! Nearest local towns are Alnwick (12 miles south) and Morpeth (20 miles south of Alnwick)
The area is renowned for it's wide sandy beaches and sheltered sand dunes. Ideal for walking. You can walk south of Beadnell along the coastal path to Newton By The Sea where you can have the most enjoyable luch at The Ship Inn.
If you're appetite is not quite ready, soldier on south past the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle to Craster, famous for its kippers and crab sandwiches - The Jolly Fisherman pub is the best place to have these sitting in their garden overlooking the sea with spectacular views of the coast.
Walking along the beach north from Beadnell you will first come to Seahouses. Lots to see and do there (read about the boat trips above) and for sustenance we recommend any one of the fish and chip restaurants (we prefer The Neptune) or The Ship Inn just up from the harbour. The cosy little bar has to be seen to believed - you'll never see a ceiling adorned with so much marine paraphernalia as you'll see here - with not even a speck of dust! Great food with local and regional ales all served here in this family run inn.
You can walk even further from here heading north to Bamburgh without leaving the beach. Just head for the castle, about 2.5 miles further along the beach.
If all of this is too energetic then the beach on Beadnell Bay will suit everyone. Watersports are available too - the sheltered bay is ideal. For land lovers, the beach is so wide when the tide is out you could easily have a full size football pitch running lengthways between the water and the dunes. The dunes provide great shelter; sit below them have a barbecue. Two local pubs are family-friendly and offer a great choice of food and drinks. In the high season, you can sit on the picnic benches outside the village's great little fish and chip shop which sits behind the dunes by the (other, closer) beach.

The Sands ist ein schönes gepflegtes Haus. Der Willkommens - Kuchen wurde nach der langen Fahrt dankend angenommen. Der kleine Garten mit Aussicht über die Felder und zwei Pferden ist sehr entspanne… More
Thank you so much for your very nice compliments on the house. The horses in the field do make the garden that bit more relaxing - you obviously got on very well with them! I'm glad too that you had such a good fortnight in Beadnell that you would like to return and should you ever make it back we would be delighted to accommodate you again.

"Compact, well equipped and clean. Great location and cottage."
Travelled with my partner and 2 kids (aged 11 & 12) and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is compact, well equipped and clean. It is in an ideal location, quiet and a 5 minute walk to the sea front. The free wifi was a nice addition.
Thank you for your positive review. I'm glad you all enjoyed the place, it is a nice little spot too for a family beach holiday and I hope one day you'll return.

"Lovely break at The Sands"
Very well equipped cottage. Clean and welcoming. Cake and tea on arrival was a very nice touch. A great location from which to explore this fascinating and historic coastline.
Thank you for your positive review. It's always good to hear that guests liked the cottage and enjoyed exploring the area - it is a very special place, especially when the weather is as fine as it has been.

"A lovely cottage with a homely feel"
The cottage was well looked after and had a very local feel, with some nice pictures and nautical themed decorations. The welcome cake was very nice, and the garden was a real sun-trap (we were lucky to get some sun!). Swallows came to investigate and may be nesting now. The area is beautiful, we visited the Farne Islands, and had the experience of being bombed by terns - not to be missed, and they didn't! The bunk beds are full-sized, but we were four adults and personally we found the second room a little small, though it would be quite OK for a family with children.
We're really pleased you enjoyed our cottage. The second bedroom is small and hence the bunk beds which we had specially made and although they are adult sized they don't compromise the remaining space in the room that much and we think they are worth having. That said, the room is probably more suited to children because of the size restriction and we have therefore amended the property description to point this out. Thank you for this constructive feedback and also the nice things you said about our cottage. I will keep you up to date on the swallows as previously promised.

"A comfortable base for exploring a very beautiful area."
A warm welcome with beverages and cake. The cottage was clean with lots of bedlinen and towels provided. A safe enclosed garden overlooking fields. Entertained by the nesting swallows under the patio roof.
Thank you for your positive comments. The swallows were definitely a hit this year.

"This was our second holiday here and it was as good as the first"
We loved the cottage last year and wanted to come back to see and do the things we didn't have time for last year. The children were excited to see the cottage again and revisit the beaches. The … More
It is always very rewarding when guests choose to return and it was lovely to have you back. You've seen a lot of Northumberland now - but it's a big county and there is still so much more to see!!

"Wonderfully relaxing & everything we needed"
Lovely, well equipped cottage, everything we needed, baby swallows outside the French windows kept us amused all week! Weather was fabulous, beaches within walking distance, cake there to welcome us,… More
The swallows are a real bonus and no sooner had they fledged then another pair started building a nest. It is very therapeutic to sit inside on the rocking chair watching them come and go feeding their chicks. Thank you for the positive comments about the cottage and we would love to have you back here.

"Lovely house in a beautiful area"
The house is semi-detached on the edge of quiet estate so has lovely views of the fields (complete with 2 resident horses, hares, cattle etc). There were swallows nesting in the porch which proved an additional bonus. Beadnell has 2 stunning beaches and is perfectly placed for trips to the Farne Islands, Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh castles, Lindisfarne and Alnwick. The Sands is very light and well-decorated with comfortable beds and a well-equipped kitchen. It feels like a real home and the owners, Heather and John, are lovely people who provide all the information you need to enjoy a memorable holiday in this beautiful part on the UK.
Thank you for such a lovely review. We're thrilled you got so much out of your stay up here.
