Overview

Contemporary coastal chic moments from an expansive golden bay. 

Unwind with soul-stirring sea views and effortless indoor-outdoor living.

Situated on a stunning stretch of the Northumberland coastline, Tide’s Watch is a sophisticated escape for those yearning for sand and sea. Located in the picturesque fishing village of Beadnell, its thoughtful design capitalises on its setting to full effect. Expansive windows frame far-reaching views out to the North Sea, whose boundless waves and fresh breezes will form the constant backdrop to your stay. 

The open-plan kitchen and dining area lies to the left of the entrance hall, flowing with ease out through double doors and into the garden. Cool and minimalist, the kitchen features quartz worktops and three stools at the breakfast bar – perfect for leisurely breakfasting by early risers – while the window seat is the ideal spot to weather-watch as you plan your day. Whether the sun is shining or rain clouds are rolling in, you have a choice of two spacious dining tables to enjoy meals together, one beside the kitchen and the other outside on the deck. 

On the ground floor you’ll also find two of the bedrooms, one a twin and the other a double; the former features its own door to the garden while the latter enjoys sea views. Blending industrial minimalism with all the cosiness of Scandi hygge, they’re soothing rooms in which to relax after long days spent on the coast and are both served by a family bathroom, complete with an inviting rainforest shower. 

Upstairs, a mezzanine living room is warmed by an impressive log burner and boasts a floor-to-ceiling feature window. The mid-century style furnishings, contemporary wall art, and glass balustrade contribute to the pared-back appeal of this room. Next door is the master bedroom, with a king-size four-poster bed and Hypnos mattress amidst a calming palette of pink, sage and cream. This understated opulence is complemented by even more sea views and an ensuite bathroom, including a roomy bath. 

The garden is a true suntrap and its fire pit provides a great spot to gather in the evening. Beadnell Bay is a well-loved location for watersports enthusiasts while numerous breathtaking walking trails and golf courses also lie on your doorstep. The house features its own lockable garage for storing all your kit – be it surf boards, bikes, or golf clubs – while a purpose-built hanging rail for wetsuits ensures you’ll be ready to tackle the waves again in the morning.

Location

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.

Activities

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. Tide's Watch is ideally placed for exploring the Northumberland Coast. Start each day with a walk on the sand at Beadnell 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.
