If you’re lucky enough, you may even see a seal bobbing in the sea whilst you’re on the boat.

Very good



Lovely location, great for walks on the beach, nice house.



Great location, easy walk into town. Loved our stay here.



Had a fantastic stay! Will book again



Immediately felt uneasy about the stay when we were hit with a large cleaning fee & an unexpected request for a deposit after the booking had been accepted.
We decided to go ahead & the place was easy enough to find. But when we opened the door there was a strong smell of stale cigarette smoke throughout the entire house.
As the sun set, we searched for the light switch & flicked it on. But there was no power! We tried the fuse box, normal. So we phoned the management company who directed us to a meter outside which read ‘emergency credit’. We pushed the button & fortunately, the meter got topped up for the remainder of our stay.
Anyway, the house needs proper maintenance. The downstairs toilet runs. The upstairs toilet handle is very loose. The dripping & clicking from the bathroom kept me from sleeping & there was dog poo in the back garden.
All in all, a disappointing stay made worse by the cleaners arriving 20 minutes early, waiting on the drive & making us feel awks AF.



Beachcombers is indeed a clean, comfortable, well-equipped house in a lovely position where you can easily walk into town and to the shore. The owners have furnished the house very thoughtfully. 10/10.
We were greatly disappointed by the pervasive smell of cigarette smoke in the house. We did complain but no one came to call. Also, the thermostat on the shower did not work and the water ran too hot.
And surely the Housekeeping team should notice that the toilet flush in the bathroom was not functioning - when cleaning the place? A shame the house is not well maintained.
The rubbish outside was overflowing.
In addition, it was a shock to have paid and then be presented with a bill of 25 pounds for extra insurance or a deposit of 250 pounds!! Booking.com used to say the charges were up front. Later, I did see this deposit mentioned in the last paragraph for the description of the property. Not to be repeated by us.



All the little touches, especially the doggy accents.






The bedrooms were very nice, kitchen and lounge fine, location fine.
We were looking forward to using the bath, but the water in the bathroom was not hot enough, water in the shower fine.
The heating seemed only to come on at certain intervals and was not on in the evenings, the front panel on the boiler was off , looked like someone had been working on it. Did not like having to pay an amount to avoid leaving a deposit to in case there were damages "Damage waiver £25" surely your insurance covers this ?We never have paid this before with Bookings.com.



Fabulous location. Two minutes walk from the beach.
House has everything you need in it and parking outside. Quiet location



Great house well equipped and very clean and tidy and comfortable. Recommended.



Excellent location, great house very well kept & immaculate in all ways except one!
From the moment we opened the front door we could smell cigarette smoke even after leaving windows & doors open it remained. Every item of our clothing smelt of smoke by the time we left totally unacceptable. I have to admit to a mistake I missed the details around damage wavers & felt frustrated when I realised I had to pay an additional £260, refundable minus £10 in 14 days or £25 total for a 2 nt stay & provide my personal information to a company I've never heard of subject to an inspection after my stay I was disappointed to be put in this position when I booked with booking.com I expect their T&Cs not host & stay whom I had never heard of & frankly I will never stay with again!



Glorious part of the world for a weekend break A very comfortable house located only a short scenic walk from the harbour shops and several charming pubs We enjoyed our stay very much We had everything we needed including TV a super big fridge a washing machine and Alexa ! One thing though watch out for very hot water in the shower Maybe the temperature control is not working properly ? Also a difficult to open sliding door into the nice out door garden space Overall a great house in a very lovely part of the world no doubt of that
just as above mad I know but the shower water was a bit too hot with no means of control and the difficult sliding door Or was that just us ? ?



Very good, lovely area. Hose very nice, comfortable and clean. Just a couple of points: mirror would be helpful in second bedroom and lamp. Also lamp in main sitting room. Otherwise very good . Thankyou



Beautiful location. Walkable to beach, town, restaurants, shops etc. House itself is lovely, perfect for our family, restful, spacious.
Would definitely return. Thank you



Good location. Nice little house. Not far from Banbrough Castle, Lindisfarne, etc.
The house smelt of smoke, even after airing. Not sure if this is cleaners smoking, previous visitors or owners. But it wasn't very pleasant.



Great location, well equipped house with private parking and outdoor space



Fantastic location to walk to Beadnell and Bamburgh. Lovely and peaceful. Really enjoyed the boat trip to see puffins and seals on the Farne islands.



Nice place, a few minutes walk from the harbour, shops and pubs. Can reach other destinations such as Alnwick, Bamborough etc easily by car or bus. Good beaches and walking nearby.
