“The Perfect Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 9 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We have stayed with Mains Cottages on 6 occasions now and we can't recommend them enough. We've stayed in two of their properties and the welcome is the same every time. This is a real family enterprise and the personal attention to service, comfort and customer care is reflected in this. We're always welcomed with a home made cake, a bottle of wine/fizz (chilled) and treats for the dogs. Benthall House is a modern detached property situated on the corner of Beadnell's Harbour Road, providing stunning sea views. Only moments' walk away from the beautiful sandy Bay, the house offers everything you need for a short break or coastal holiday.
The owners have thought of everything, including holiday dog tags for four legged guests. There is plenty of space for everyone and plenty of bathrooms. A cosy upstairs lounge also boasts a wonderful balcony overlooking the sea and there's a further sitting room/sun lounge downstairs so everyone can enjoy their own space. The large kitchen/diner provides the focal point for our stays where the family gather for long meals and silly games around the large table (there are plenty of games and books at the property). Nothing is too much trouble: if you require extra of anything, you'll find one of the owners delivering it personally. My favourite tip from them when we first stayed was to order a grocery delivery online (all the major supermarkets deliver to this address). We have it down to a fine art now, arriving just ahead of our grocery delivery so that we're all set for our stay with minimum fuss or stress.
The house has all the mod cons you'd hope for and basics are provided such as tea, coffee, sugar, washing up liquid, household cleaners, bin liners and dishwashing tablets. It all makes for a very enjoyable stay.
If you have dogs and want to get away with them, this is the ideal place to book. Our dogs think this is their second home! The garden is fully dog proofed; there are spare leads, towels, bowls and poop bags; the beach is so close by and there are many wonderful walks in this part of the world, plus almost all the pubs in the area welcome dogs (and genuinely welcome rather than tolerate).
Its the personal touches, and the thoughtfulness above and beyond what's expected that makes every stay with Mains Cottages an absolute delight.

“A perfect place to spend quality time with family or friends.”
Reviewed 3 January 2018 for a stay in November 2017

Being near the beach opens lots of opportunities for all ages and abilities to enjoy themselves. Our group of 8 ‘folk of a certain age’ spent every day walking along the beaches; spending time admiring the views, discovering new places and enjoying the welcome and warmth of friendly eateries! The house is extremely comfortable and spacious and we’re already booked up to return again in November this year.

“Perfect doggy haven”
Reviewed 4 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

As a family with 3 large dogs in tow it can be hard to find somewhere to accommodate us. However I'm so glad we found this place. Beautiful location with instant access to the beach and very doggy friendly. 100% recommend

“Wonderful family weekend”
Reviewed 19 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We booked this house for a family get together to celebrate Dad's birthday. Everything was perfect - the house is in a great location with sea view from the lounge and had everything we needed for our stay. Thank you to the owners for providing a beautiful home-made chocolate cake and home-made dog treats for our stay. The house was great for the dog too with fully enclosed garden. Great, hope to be back one day.

“Fabulous Xmas Stay ”
Reviewed 5 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We were delighted to find a house for our family Christmas holiday on the stunning , unspoilt North East coast which was also 'dog friendly' however when we arrived at Benthall House it far surpassed our expectations. 
Benthall House was attractively & thoughtfully prepared for Christmas by Sam, the approachable & caring owner.  The accommodation is of a very good standard has a great layout for family/group leisure & fun.  The kitchen/dining/garden room works especially well.  The garden & driveway are very secure for children & dogs. 
Beautiful Beadnell Beach is right on the doorstep & along with other stunning beaches the area offers great restaurants, pubs, cafes & independent shops. 
All in all we enjoyed a wonderful family Christmas at Benthall House.
Thoroughly Recommended- 5+ Stars

“Fantastic well equipped very spacious house in a fantastic location next to Beadnell Beach”
Reviewed 20 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Booked Benthall House for 6 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 dogs for a birthday surprise. The house is in a fantastic location just 1 minute walk from beautiful Beadnell Beach. It is very spacious with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a lovely big kitchen dining area with added sunroom, utility room and an upstairs comfy lounge with fantastic views of the sea. There is also an enclosed balcony off the lounge. The house is exceptionally clean, homely and so well equipped with everything you need including tea, coffee, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, towels etc etc. The owner Sam, was there to meet us with a warm welcome and the key, and a delicious chocolate cake, wine and biscuits which was very thoughtful and much appreciated! There is wifi throughout, a lovely big secure enclosed garden at the back with a large patio and outdoor furniture, and lots of parking at the front. It is a short walk into Beadnell village. If you're thinking of booking this property then don't hesitate as you won't be disappointed. We would definitely go back again.
