Set on the seafront on Harbour Road in the coastal village of Beadnell in north Northumberland, The Haven enjoys uninterrupted sea views from all front windows. Just walk out of the front door, across the lane, and start enjoying the beautiful coastline.

Light and airy, with neutral decor and stripped wood floors, tasteful stripped pine furniture and comfortable lounge furniture, quality beds and bed linens, the cottage offers very spacious accommodation for 4 people.

A great few days break at The Haven. Perfectly located for beaches and walks. We have two very happy dogs! Our children had a wonderful time and made good use of the excellent WiFi!!
Quinsee family, Leicestershire, Oct 2014
Another fab holiday, blue skies, sunshine and wonderful walks! Booking again for next year!!
The Wright family, Hampshire, Sep 2014
Brilliant two weeks, greatly helped by sunshine and sunsets. When tide goes out there are wide beaches all along the coast. Bamburgh beach with views of castles - so many castles to see. The Haven has been great - will be highly recommended to friends.
The 'Wow-Wows" of Wokingham, Aug 2014
We don't want to go home. We've had a wonderful time exploring the local area. An absolute highlight has been walking our dog along the beach early in the morning and watching the sunset in the evening. The cottage really was a 'haven' - we felt like we were at home. The welcome pack was much appreciated - for the dog also.
the Higham Family, Hertfordshire, Aug 2014
The Haven is a great place to stay - very central to all the lovely beaches, weather been great. Dogs had a brilliant time exploring all the beaches.. A big thank you for the doggy bag!
The Lamb family and dogs., Jul 2014
We've had a lovely week here at The Haven. We've done lots of walking and exploring this wonderful area. The view is amazing and we've had various breakfasts/coffee/lunches on the beach over the road! Even the weather has been good to us - just one wet morning!
The Bowker family, Oxfordshire, Jul 2014
We've really enjoyed our time here in Northumberland. The beaches here are full of life, our favourite one being Bamburgh. There were lots of seals to be seen on Holy Island. We've had a lovley, relaxing holiday and the dogs have thoroughly enjoyed it!
The Walters, Oxfordshire, Jun 2014
A few years ago we had the stormiest couple of days - even the locals said - this year almost flat calm, glassy sometimes, for a week. Highlight was a trip to the Farnes - we have never seen it so crowded with birds - an astonishing sight. The Haven immaculate as ever - a very happy week - many thanks to all.
The Cazalets, Hampshire, Jun 2014
Had a fantastic time here. Lovely cottage with everything for a 'home from home' stay. What can we say about the views? AMAZING! Our first tine in Northumbria, just didn't realise how beautiful it was. Beautiful beaches and 'craggy' coastline, never got tired of looking! Dogs had the time of their lives! Thanks again, we will be sure to come back.
Murray/Sadler party, Nottingham, Jun 2014
Fabulous week, great weather, lovely cottage!
The Darowskis, Leeds, May 2014
We've very much enjoyed our stay - good cottage and ideal for dogs. We've enjoyed our early morning walks on the beach. Craster Arms is great for food.
The Suttons, Norfolk, May 2014
We don't want to go home! Had a lovely week - celebrating our 43rd wedding anniversary. Th house is warm and comfy and feels like home. In fact we wish it was! Loved the welcome packs for us and for the dogs - great idea. Loved the smell of the Arran Aromatics toiletries provided. Thank you - hope to see you again soon.
Helen and Colin and the dogs, Tyne & Wear, Mar 2014
Great place to stay - very comfy and warm. The weather has made us relax more - high seas and strong winds. Got some walking in, meals out. Thank you for your Welcome Pack.
Geoff and Barbara. Yorkshire, Jan 2014
A great place to see in the New Year - not quite empty beaches, tremendous waves and atmospheric views. Teenagers happy having WiFi and a shopping trip to Newcastle. Adults happy hanging about watching birds, eating, drinking and being merry.
Mark, Jan, Hannah and Molly, Shropshire, Jan 2014
We have had a very good Christmas here. The house has 'stood up' to the tremendous gales from the west before and after Christmas. The beach across the road and the wading birds were fascinating to watch.
Richard and Bridget, Yorkshire, Dec 2013
We came to Northumbria for a week to relax - and that is what we have done.
Fabulous house & venue.
Very homely, relaxing & quiet.
Particularly enjoyed the walk from here to Seahouses on the beach - so did Maisie.
We will return!
Dave & Terry plus Maisie the lab, Nov 2013
A lovely house in a perfect location. Great for the dog as long, sandy beaches on the doorstep, without having to use the car. The two pubs in the village both welcome dogs and The Towers does the best coffee - perfect after a bracing walk on the beach! Everybody really friendly, we have enjoyed our break and will hopefully be back soon.
Lisa, Simon & Joe Barker + Lou the labrador, Oct 2013
I have had the time of my life! This is the most wonderful cottage and it is so homely. The weather has been good and better, even though it has rained a few days - better rain here than in Alabama where it is hot and humid. I look forward to my next trip... and I will stay here again. You must go to Cragside, it is fabulous. The Tree House in Alnwick Garden is a wonderful place for lunch. Enjoy your trip!! :)
Carolyn Walker, Montgomery, Alabama, USA, Sep 2013
Again, a lovely holiday in Beadnell.
The Haven is a great place to enjoy Northumberland.
Altogether we did plenty & enjoyed everything.
Wether was great and we had really nice food/service at The Craster Arms.
Dougie the dog met lots of friendly dogs and he doesn't want to go back to Sherwood Forest!
To think of it, neither do we!!
Can't wait to come back to The Haven & Beadnell.
Thanks so much.
Great location &
Andy & Linda Turner, Brain - the dad & Dougie - the dog!!, Sep 2013

Another fantastic holiday in Beadnell! Great sunny weather, so plenty of time on the beach and rock pooling. Cottage very clean, comfortable and does feel like home!
Helen, Paul, Toby & Tansy. Plus Pippa the dog, Aug 2013
Can't beat the location. Enjoyed many beaches & rock pooling over the road. Played cricket at the foot of Bamburgh Castle followed by excellent ice-creams. The Castle Hotel in Bamburgh allows dogs in the beer garden, food was surprisingly good.
Thomlinson family, Aug 2013
A great location and cottage for our first holiday with a dog. Lovely weather for two weeks - we will be back.
Burr family, Aug 2013
Had a great week of Walking, paddling 'n' playing ball with Gus the collie.
Coll, Rose & Gus Young, Jul 2013
Nice comfy cottage, fantastic beach, something for everyone, rock pools, sand, fossils & wildlife. We have walked and walked until we could walk no more, or that maybe because the stubborn miniature Jack Russell refused to go any further without any ice cream!!
Steve, Pat & Amy + Max the dog, Jul 2013
Perfect weather - Perfect house - What a great week!
Everyone walked to a standstill!!
Welcome packs very welcome, loved the biscuits - thank you.
Have had a wonderful, sunny week.
Walked, cycled & swam in the sea (in a wet suit).
Dogs have loved beaches & ideal cottage for them.

A wonderful first visit to The Have, Beadnell & hopefully not our last - a warm & comfortable base for lots of exploring & fantastic walks. Thank-you.
The Drysdale family, May 2013
Our annual week at The Haven is always one of the highlights of our year & this was no exception.
It feels like home from home, the moment we open the door here.
Extraordinary weather - but the cottage is wonderfully warm and everyone we meet on the beach and around the village is charming.
Thank you to Stay Northumbria who keep the cottage immaculate.
We'll be back again next year - which will be our 13th visit!
Adrian & Amelia Cazalet & Jodie, May 2013
Had a wonderful week, The Have was perfect for us and the dogs, with plenty of walk from the house, beautiful beaches and many interesting places to visit. Good food at The Craster Arms and dog welcome. Thank you for a great holiday.
A lovely light & spacious cottage & what a beautiful sea view! We have had a wonderful week of sunshine - so lucky - and of course there was a brisk wind as well! Visited the Farne Islands, Holy Island, Cragside, Low Newton, Craster, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh & Alnwick. A simply lovely holiday in a beautiful situation.
David, Sheila & Archie, Apr 2013
We had fabulous time at The Haven and visited many local places. The weather was fantastic, which made the scenery and long walks on the beaches all the more enjoyable.
Deborah & Gary, Apr 2013
Have been meaning to send you an e-mail regarding our stay. We all had a most enjoyable and relaxing week at The Haven. Well equipped and homely cottage, views where spectacular, very central for all tourist locations. We do hope to return in the future, thank you for accomodating the Mon to Mon booking. Many thanks, Mike and 'B' Winser.
Mike and 'B' Winser, Oct 2012
A beautiful cottage with stunning views. Truly exceeded every expectation. A wonderful, snowy Christmas too. Warm, inviting with supersoft beds and every need catered for. Thank you we will be back in the Summer......
The Porter family, Al Air, United Arab Emirates, Dec 2010
Beadnell is a small village on the North Northumberland coast situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Once thriving as a fishing village and making its mark as a centre for the trade of lime and grain, its main thrust today is tourism, although some of the original fishing families still run boats from the pretty harbour over which stands guard the now redundant lime kilns.
The village has a pub, a hotel, both of which serve good ale and food, a post office / convenience store and a small cafe serving delightful offerings like huge cream filled meringues and cream teas and hot broth on colder autumn days.
Beadnell is a great base - it is steeped in history - just get talking to a local and they'll exude the tales of fisher folk, farmers and the herring lasses that followed the fleet down from Scotland in the hay day of the herring and the infamous Kipper, the Border Reivers, the Scots and the Vikings and the battles that made northern england.
There's the tranquility too, beautiful expanses of unspoilt beach, ideal for water sports and the village has its own launch facilities for leisure craft. Only 2 miles north is the busier village of Seahouses from where you can take trips to the Farne Islands, sample locally made ice cream and treat yourself to Fish and Chips whilst watching the days activities in the harbour. Or walk or cycle along the coastal path North and South, visit Castles, gardens, and find out about our religious heritage. Sample good local produce from local suppliers and marvel at the works of local artists in one of the galleries dotted along the coast.
