As close to the image of a seaside holiday home as you'll get?
Certainly a well loved holiday house, owners Amanda and Mike have over the years collected some amazing coastal and nautical memorabilia and created a welcoming house that's somewhere you're not afraid to kick off your shoes and relax.
They've chosen cosy furnishings, quality bed linen and towels, toiletries, and an arrival tray to provide guests at Seacot a warm welcome (includes one of daughter Emily's fantastic home-made cakes, mmm!!!).
Well equipped and functional, Seacot has that all important feature - direct access from its enclosed gated garden to one of the best beaches Northumberland has to offer.
?Beadnell and its sweeping bay, is popular with families and water sports enthusiasts alike, with its own boat launch, sailing club and is popular with kite surfers and divers. The beach is wide and sandy, great to play with the kids, walk the dog or do a bit of bird watching at the Trust Sanctuary.
?Seacot is an ideal base from which to explore the further attributes of Northumberland, the tranquility of the inland stretches of fells and moors which are ideal for walking - The Cheviots, St. Oswalds Way, St. Cuthbert's Way and Hadrian's Wall; the history captured in the county's large number of Castles and the roots of Christianity on Lindisfarne. Do a spot of bird watching or take a trip to the Farne Islands famous for its seals and puffins........or just relax, unwind and enjoy......
The cottage is nestled down amongst the dunes in the popular area known as The Wamses. The garden is well protected and from the upstairs balcony there are views across the dunes to the beach which is just a short distance away through the garden gate.

Thank you for making our 3 day stay at Seacott so enjoyable. We really appreciated the chocolate brownie, wine, milk and orange juice.
Your cottage is so deceiving as it looks quite small from the outside but had plenty of room for all our family which included 6 adults, 3 children and a baby.
We found it to be well equipped (even hot water bottles!) and loads of toys and games for the youngsters.
Ideally situated for the lovely beach and days out to Holy Island and Bamburgh.
As we live in New Zealand we will not be back for a while though our UK family hope to return.

The kitchen was really well equipped plus there was an extremely nice welcome pack.
There were ample lovely fluffy towels.
The beds and bedlinen were very comfortable.
It was once to have ocean club membership which we used.
It was nice that there were toys for our grandchildren and bowls etc for the dog.
We felt very welcome just like a home from home.

What a lovely holiday, loved the house it all feels just right. Thank you for the thoughtful touches. The chocolate brownie was fab! Have had some lovely walks on the beach and days out. Always a pleasure to come "home" to such a great place. Great meals at "The Towers" ...... We will be back again.
Sharon & Andy Jones, Fife, Jun 2011
Your house is very much home from home, thank you for a lovely holiday! This is our first trip to Northumbria and we will certainly be back to do more exploring. The weather was very kind to us and we managed to see something different and do a new walk every day. Thank you for the lovely chocolate cake x

We enjoyed this place as soon as we got here! The house is lovely and the location is perfect! Right next to the beach. We all appreciated the "brownies" and hope to come back again sometime in the near future!! Thank you x P.S. Thank you for the welcome pack.

Beautiful location, house was perfect - had everything we needed chocolate brownies and wine were very welcome. Dogs loved the beaches - actually we all loved the beaches. We've left the next visitors a jigsaw, can be completed in a week (but the skies very tricky!)
