Sailors Snug is an attractive, stone-built, terraced cottage nestled within the prestigious Smuggler’s Cove development, right in the heart of the coastal village of Beadnell. The accommodation is immaculately presented throughout. Patio doors enhance the living room with natural light, and there’s a small, fully enclosed patio area outside. Both bedrooms and the bathroom are situated on the first floor.
The property is positioned within the original part of the village close to St Ebba’s Church (named after a Northumbrian princess who founded the abbey in Coldingham), and there are two pubs, a café and a well-stocked village shop within walking distance.
Beadnell is a popular holiday destination thanks to the wide expanse of golden sandy beach at Beadnell Bay, which lies around half a mile south of the village. Ideal for water sports enthusiasts, there’s a wide range of activities to try, including sailing, sea kayaking, wind surfing and scuba diving. Beadnell Bay can truly be described as the jewel in Northumberland’s seaside crown, as it is also the perfect spot for a romantic barefoot stroll in the sand to listen to the waves lap against the shoreline as you breathe in the invigorating sea air. Alternatively, there’s a sandy bay speckled with rocky outcrops close to the village shop, which stretches 2 miles northward to the traditional fishing port of Seahouses. From here, boat trips depart regularly from its harbour to the nearby Farne Islands, which is famous for its bird sanctuaries and seal colony.
There are several charming tea rooms, quaint pubs and shops with horse riding, fishing and golf on the nearby links to name a few of the many amenities available in this popular location. A further 3 miles up the coastline is the picturesque village of Bamburgh, which lies snuggled in the shadow of its majestic fortress and commands the power and presence of the seasoned television set it regularly becomes. Holy Island, birthplace of Christianity in the UK and the site of Lindisfarne Castle, can be seen from the unspoiled, golden sandy beach.
Just a few miles inland is the bustling market town of Alnwick, with its own dramatic castle that was used as the setting for Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Academy. Visitors can enjoy a trip to Alnwick Garden, a spectacular interpretation of a formal garden. Highlights include the Grand Cascade Waterfall and a restaurant built within the largest treehouse in Europe!
