Wonderful for families, an upside-down home designed to capitalise on its coastal vistas.
Stay in a village beside Beadnell Bay, steps from the sand and close to castles
Yearning for gorgeous sea views? In this stylish, spacious base, which puts families only a very short walk from Beadnell Bay’s golden-coloured beach, they abound.
It helps that Seaside House’s design ensures that its coastal scenery is always prominent. So you’ll find the open-plan living areas upstairs – light, bright and airy open-plan spaces where black-framed windows frame seascapes that should frequently give your heart a lift.
Blue and white shades emphasise the marine location, too, illuminated by chic pendant lights. After dark, three sofas positively demand relaxation in league with a Smart TV and Sky package. There’s also a large dining table, plus three stools at the casual breakfast bar and another bar which might become someone’s workspace, tucked away from the sociable kitchen island. The Farrow and Ball 'Railings' bespoke kitchen proffers every necessary appliance.
Bifold doors lead out to the rear garden and its raised deck where a barbecue, rattan sofa and dining table encourage outdoor living. So does the front balcony, whose romantic bistro set accompanies yet more stunning sea views.
Downstairs, on the entry level, all four bedrooms are en suite; three contain king or super-king-sized beds while the last is a twin room. In each case, their bathrooms feature large, walk-in showers. Accessible from the hallway too, one is also a Jack and Jill bathroom whose big, freestanding modern tub can be used by all guests for a soak.
Patio doors connect from two of the double rooms onto that back sun terrace, and the neat, enclosed lawn – around which energetic kids can tear about – beyond.
Beadnell’s restaurants and grocery shop are within easy walking distance, as are two great pubs. Beside its lovely beer garden, The Craster Arms occupies a medieval defensive Pele tower, while recently-refurbished Beadnell Towers is ever popular among guests for its great food. Situated at one end of Beadnell Bay’s two-mile horseshoe of sand, the village is known as a centre for watersports such as surfing, sailing and scuba diving.
Other quirky Beadnell charms include beautiful 18th-century lime kilns and the east coast’s only west-facing harbour. Just up-coast is Seahouses, from where guided small-boat trips chug off to the Farne Islands in search of dolphins, seals and seabirds galore. Coast Path walks across dunes to Low Newton’s atmospheric Ship Inn or ruined Dunstanburgh Castle are other options for days out, as is Alnwick Castle – of Harry Potter film fame.

There’s no shortage of places to eat in the area, with everything from cosy pubs to comfy cafes, not forgetting some of the best fish and chips of course!
Right in the village of Beadnell you will find The Craster Arms, a traditional coaching inn serving a range of hearty meals, as well as The Landing at Beadnell Bay a brand new beach bar & restaurant specialising in seafood dishes. The village also offers a post office and general convenience store for basic essentials.
The hugely popular Ship Inn at nearby Low Newton (5.6 miles) is renowned for great seafood lunches and its microbrewery, or try the Joiners Arms in Newton By The Sea. Continue south down the coast to sample delicious crab sandwiches at the highly regarded Jolly Fisherman at Craster (8.7 miles) or head to the lovely Shoreline Cafe for a steaming cappuccino and home-made cakes - muddy boots and dogs welcome! A must-visit is Robson’s Smokehouse, home of the famous Craster kippers as well as a wonderful selection of smoked delicacies, fresh fish, shellfish, cheeses and other delicious local produce from the Northumberland heartlands.
Travelling north on the coastal trail will take you to the seaside town of Seahouses (1.8 miles) to enjoy traditional fish and chips, or for evening dining try the Black Swan Inn, a new bistro pub serving mouth-watering meals with a focus on fresh fish. If it is Italian cuisine you're are looking for, head to the popular Insieme Seahouses restaurant. The town also has a good-sized Co-op convenience store on the high street, family bakers and a handful of independent shops.
Further north, call into the Potted Lobster at Bamburgh (5.1 miles) which has a fantastic reputation for producing exceptional seasonal dishes using the very best produce the area has to offer, while The Pantry and The Copper Kettle are delightful tearooms to enjoy a coffee and a tasty traybake.
A little further afield, you will find a greater range of amenities in nearby Alnwick (14.4 miles) with an eclectic selection of specialist shops, including a deli, bakery, award-winning butcher’s, charming coffee and gift shops, as well as a number of large supermarkets for holiday provisions.
For a dining experience with a difference, the Treehouse Restaurant at Alnwick Gardens is not to be missed. Set high in the treetops, it is a magical spot to spend an evening, featuring local fish and seafood, meats from Northumberland’s farmlands, as well as other regional specialities all within a lovely ambient setting.
Northumberland is renowned for some of the best beaches in the country, so if you want to spend your days walking over golden sands and watching the ever-changing sea, then you have come to the right place. Seaside House is ideally placed for exploring the Northumberland Coast. Start each day with a walk on the sand at Beadnall Bay which is right on the doorstep. The Bay is especially popular for those who enjoy watersports due to its protected waters and a number of accredited schools and instructors across the area. Alternatively head to Newton-by-the-Sea, a 10 minutes drive by car, where you can spend endless hours paddling, sandcastle-building, walking, surfing and body-boarding.
The Northumberland Coastal Path and National Cycle Route 1 also runs right through this area taking in scenic coastal paths for walking and biking and never-ending beaches all the way along the route. However, if you would rather explore the area on horseback, there is a riding centre at Slate Hall Riding School near Seahouses where you can experience the thrill of a beach ride.
For golf fans, there are scenic courses at Foxton, Alnmouth, Alnwick and Dunstanburgh, while fishing enthusiasts can cast a line on the lake below the mill and in the Brunton burn that runs down to the sea - by arrangement with the estate office.
Sitting within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, nature lovers, birdwatchers and photographers will be captivated by the vast variety of wildlife and birdlife right on the doorstep. Or why not take a boat trip from nearby Seahouses where you will be enthralled by the thousands of breeding sea-birds and seals taking up every square foot of this incredible rocky outcrop, including over 37,000 pairs of characterful Puffins. Alternatively, Ross Links and Holy Island are both top spots for vast numbers of migrant species, including the chance to see the odd grey seal bobbing inquisitively in the sea, while sightings of minke whales and white-beaked dolphins can also be spotted in calm sea conditions.
History buffs will delight in visits to the grand stately homes and medieval castles of the area - Dunstanburgh, Warkworth, Bamburgh and Lindisfarne stand as reminders of the area’s turbulent past, or head inland to the magnificent Alnwick Castle for a super family day out. Here you will find an activity programme brimming with adventure where children can take part in all sorts of magic and mayhem inspired by the characters of Harry Potter or test their knightly courage in the Dragon Quest.
Finally, for garden lovers, a visit to the stunning setting of Alnwick Gardens, Howick Hall and Cragside is an absolute must, with spectacular colours and beautiful walks through the grounds.
