This art deco house has been extensively renovated and its original art deco features enhanced. Panoramic sea views can be enjoyed from a balcony and also a terrace at first floor level and a large sun deck at second floor level. In addition there is a small, fully-enclosed and private paved garden which is ideal for barbecues and for children to play. All the bedrooms are on the ground floor so that full advantage can be taken of the beautiful views from the upstairs lounges.
The Haven beach is just yards away, directly across the green in front of the house, and is a delightful sandy beach - ideal for buckets and spades and rock-pooling!
The first floor lounge has a smart tv with Sky Movies, BT Sport and Netflix. Wi-fi is available throughout the house. A huge, luxurious spa bath in the family bathroom is wonderful for relaxing at the end of a perfect day. With two large lounges and a games room, this is an ideal place for families and groups of friends to get together.
This warm and welcoming yet stylish house is supplied with everything we can think of to make your stay happy and relaxing and we can even arrange for a company to cook and serve gourmet meals at the house.
There are a number of renowned golf courses within a short distance of the house including Seahouses Golf Course (1 mile), Bamburgh Castle Golf Course (5 miles) and Dunstanburgh Castle Golf Course (8 miles).
Beadnell Bay has a magnificent 2 mile sweep of golden sands and dunes. The quiet beaches of Annstead Bay to the north of the house can be reached on foot within 10 minutes. Stunning Bamburgh beach and Castle are only 4 miles away.
Boat trips run regularly from Seahouses harbour to the bird reserves on the Farne Islands and to Holy Island in the summer.

Peace and tranquility are always to be found on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne whichcan only be accessed at low tide by a causeway which links it to the mainland. Alnwick, a larger market town, is dominated by Alnwick Castle (used in some of the Harry Potter films) and the Duchess's Garden at Alnwick is a lovely place to spend an afternoon .

Beadnell Harbour is an historic and beautiful west-facing harbour (the only one on the North East coast!) and has the National Trust-owned Beadnell Limekilns as a backdrop.
Beadnell has a post office and a small shop, two very good pubs with excellent food (The Beadnell Towers and The Craster Arms), a church and a well-equipped children's playground.
South of Beadnell is the huge sweep of Beadnell Bay with its golden sands stretching for over 2 miles. Wonderful for children and the young-at-heart. Part-way round the bay is the Long Nanny bird reserve with a large colony of nesting terns and plovers.
