The village of Beadnell is located on the Northumberland coast, and is one of the most picturesque places in the area. It benefits from both charming scenery and accessibility, making it one of the most popular villages for holidaymakers. It boasts a stunning beach along this stretch of the Northumberland coastline, which extends for over 3 miles south, all the way to Newton-by-the-Sea. Beadnell is just 10 miles from Alnwick and 40 miles north of Newcastle upon Tyne.
The walls of Beadnell Harbour were built in the 1790s and the old lime kilns still stand, though they are now owned and protected by the National Trust. The Craster Arms, located in the heart of the village, incorporates the oldest building in the area, a 16th century tower.
With a beer garden ideal for enjoying the summer sunshine, this welcoming local pub and popular restaurant welcomes dogs and has large open fires to keep you warm and toasty in the winter. If you’re looking for a great place to eat, then The Beadnell Towers Hotel could be for you. The food here is second to none and can be enjoyed both in the pub and the restaurant.
There are many water sports activities available at Beadnell Bay. The favourable wind directions and protected swells of up to 12 to 15ft make this bay ideal for those looking to go surfing or body boarding, but you’ll also find wake-boarding and water-skiing. As the beach is long, it is suited perfectly for kite boarding too. There are also many opportunities for diving in the area, with several diving clubs located nearby. Beadnell Sailing club has been established for more than four decades, and offers both a boat launch facility and tractor.
Within Beadnell village, you will find a well-stocked general store, two excellent pub/restaurants and a fish and chip shop. This makes it ideal for those looking to explore the coast, and its many historic sites and stunning Northumberland scenery.
We can offer a number of different cottages in Beadnell, all of which are conveniently located near the harbour, beach and local amenities. All cottages are well equipped and comfortable and suitable for parties up to 8 people.
