The Moorings enjoys an excellent location, overlooking the beautiful Beadnell coastline - with breath-taking sea views from the spacious upstairs lounge and kitchen/diner, as well as a cosy, open fire to relax beside on chilly nights!

The large conservatory leads off from the lounge area, offering yet more space to relax - with double doors opening onto the wide balcony, which looks over a rear garden terrace. This is an ideal spot if you want to catch some afternoon sun and delve into a good book in the comfort of one of the best holiday cottages in Beadnell.

When you spend your stay in one of our conveniently located Beadnell cottages, you can simply pop over the road to see the beautiful Beadnell Bay in all its golden glory and investigate the range of local watersports activities on offer. Nearby are two great pubs serving food, and an excellent cafe and patisserie (which becomes a popular bistro in the evenings).

The fishing village of Seahouses, boasting a wide range of restaurants, coffee houses and shops (as well as boat trips to the famous Farne Islands) is a 2-minute drive from here - with Bamburgh Castle and its beautiful village just a few minutes beyond that. Put simply, The Moorings is a superb place to stay with lots to offer a larger group.

The living accommodation is open plan and located upstairs, taking advantage of the uninterrupted, coastal scenery. The property has Freeview TV, a DVD player and Wi-Fi to keep everyone entertained during your time in the cottage.

The kitchen is very well-equipped, with everything you might need - from plastic picnic cups to cling film (not to mention 2 fridges)! It’s the perfect space to cook, socialise and enjoy a home-cooked meal with your family and friends.

The Moorings is ideally located in Beadnall with stunning sea views from the lounge window. It is 5 minutes walk to a beautiful sandy beach and surrounded by public footpaths for walking.

Lovely sea views, and Beadnell harbour and beach just around the corner. Bedroom layout downstairs isn't great, but if you are all the same family sharing, it's not a huge problem

We felt so comfortable in this holiday home. It is ideal for family groups and those with dogs. The location is fantastic with views out to sea, and such a short walk to a fabulous sandy beach. Hugely recommend for a family holiday.

This was our first visit to Northumberland and the cottage was in a perfect location. The sea view from the lounge is amazing. The sun is in the back in the afternoon, which makes the conservatory a lovely place to sit. There was just the two of us and two dogs, but this would be a great stay for a family or with friends. You are only a few minutesRead more walk from a small harbour and beautiful beach. Really helpful contact from the owner. Will be going back again. Hide

So lovely to look out onto the coast! Location is great for beach walks and not too far from local beauty spots like Holy Island and Bamburgh Castle! The open fire is great for the cold nights and all in all very comfy and cosy! I would definitely recommend The Moorings

Just returned from a wonderful week in a beautiful part of the country that was new to us. The whole family were able to join us and the house was perfect. There was everything we could possibly need especially for small children safety gates, high chairs, travel cots and even a baby carrier! When we arrived we were blown away by the view and the sRead moreight of the wine on the table was an added bonus! The house was spotless and very roomy, there were 8 adults and a toddler in our party and lots of space to relax in. The conservatory was a great place to have a little quiet time and catch some sun. We had mixed weather but it didn't spoil our experience as you could spend ages looking out on the bay we spotted seals and a dolphin one evening. Everyone enjoyed the lovely beach and there are plenty of walks to do. We did on line delivery for our food when we arrived as the bigger shops are in the next village. As a big group the two fridges in the kitchen was very useful. I would recommend trips to Alnwick and Holy Island and you can check the tide times for safe crossings at Seahouses. I am sitting here trying to think of any negatives about this holiday and even if I was very picky I would struggle to find some. Hide

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
