“4th visit to this property - says it all really!”
We've visited The Sands 4 times and it is one of the best holiday properties we have stayed in. Everything we need is there, clean, tidy, well presented, friendly and helpful owners, and the little added touches that make a holiday special. Handy for two beaches and an excellent chip shop, comfortable beds, plenty of towels, horses at the bottom of the garden. We love it.
Owner's reply: Thank you Mum! Seriously, the most flattering feedback we can get is a a returning guest.
“Great little place, conveniently located”
We stayed during half term week with our 2 year old. Cottage was well equipped for those travelling with young children and had a high chair and travel cot. The cottage is comfortable and compact, perfect for us three. The garden was great and we managed to sit out a few evenings and meet the horses. It's a quiet spot, located in a cul de sac. The beach is a short walk away and the two village pub/hotels are less than 5 mins walk. We liked the convenience of the location - just two miles from Seahouses, and not too far from Alnwick, Bamburgh and Lindisfarne. Would recommend.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind comments. Beadnell is a special place to get away from it all but without being completely isolated.
“A perfect base for exploring Northumberland - we'll be back!”
The Sands was a cosy and comfortable cottage and a great base for exploring Northumberland. As we were extremely lucky with the weather - glorious sunshine every day - we were out all day at various beaches and sight-seeing, and our youngest loved the boat trip to the Farne Islands where we saw seals, birds and even a couple of puffins. We enjoyed being able to walk to the local beaches where we watched the surfers and collected shells, and we ate at both pubs in the village - a welcome change for Mum! We also went along to the Spring Fling at the WI hall and got a few bargains and homemade cakes. The locals were warm and welcoming, and overall everything about our holiday and accommodation was top notch. The garden was perfect for children to play out safely while you have a coffee on the patio, or watch the horses in the fields. An idyllic spot. The owners John and Heather left us a delicious cake on arrival - a lovely and much-appreciated welcome! We hope to return next year.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your positive review. You certainly made the most of what the village had to offer! It's always very rewarding for us to receive reviews like this and the fact that you would like to return next year makes it even better - we look forward to welcoming you again!
“Wow ! Only 2 minutes walk to the stunning Beadnell Bay and beach.”
Our stay in Beadnell was eagerly anticipated and did not disappoint. From the clean , crisp , snug surroundings of our cottage to the wide open spaces of Beadnell Bay my family of 4 ( two boys aged 12 and 7 )were in our element . Either taking in the culture of the castles at Alnwick , Bamburgh or Dunstonburgh or body boarding in sea at Beadnell our whole stay was great . Our first visit to. Northumberland was worth the wait and we will definitely return to the area and to the cottage so well presented by the owners !!
Owner's reply: It's great to get such wonderful feedback - thank you! But what is even better is to hear that you and your family had such an enjoyable stay. Sounds like you made the most of your stay in Northumberland and it would be a pleasure to see you back soon.
“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.
Owner's reply: 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.
Owner's reply: 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.
Owner's reply: 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.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your positive comments. The swallows were definitely a hit this year.
“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.
Owner's reply: Thank you for such a lovely review. We're thrilled you got so much out of your stay up here.
“Great location, excellent facility.”
Quick & easy access to all the coastline. Very quiet & peaceful location. All amenities provided for with comfortable interior in very good order. Key safe is excellent way of gaining entry as we could not tell when we would arrive.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your positive review; it is really appreciated. We're delighted you had a nice stay up here and we hope you come back.
