We stayed at The Sands in Beadnell and it was probably the best cottage we have rented, so well equipped and clean and would highly recommend this as a place to stay. It was anice touch by the owners to leave milk and tea and a nice touch was the cake, very welcome after a long journey.

“This was our second holiday here and it was as good as the first”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

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 cottage is very comfortable and stylish and we felt very at home. In addition to Alnwick Gardens, Holy Island and Bamburgh Castle which we visited last year we spent a day visiting the stunning Northumberland National Park which is only about 40 minutes drive from the cottage. Fantastic!

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”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

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, loved it. Only one downside for me, the bed was quite hard so took a couple of nights to get used to it, but that was only one small thing in a myriad of excellent things. Fully intend to return.

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.
