TO NOTE

There is no garden but a small private courtyard with a table and chairs for outdoor eating.

No tumble dryer, just a washing machine.

Whilst we take great care to represent our properties and their facilities as accurately as possible, the décor, furnishings and facilities shown in images and video tours may occasionally be subject to minor change.

Children are welcome at The Bolthole, but the only amenities are a few toys and games and a small courtyard garden. The beach, however, is a short walk away and very child friendly with washing facilities and toilets.

Reviews

A little gem. We'll come back next time we need a bit of rest and recuperation. The Bolthole was just so peaceful even though it's in a village. The beds are comfy, the lounge cosy and the beach is much closer than we thought. We were on Smugglers beach every day - a 3 min walk!

Past Customer,

I think this was actually the best cottage I have been to both in terms of location and presentation...near enough to civilisation not to feel isolated but out of the way enough to let you relax. Great to have The Craster Arms nearby - we ate there a couple of times and really enjoyed it. The property was spotless, and beautifully presented. There were lovely touches throughout...and a general feeling that the owners really cared about the place.

Past Customer,

Really good value for money holiday and a surprising spacious little cottage with amazing attention to detail. Love the paella recipe on the wall - very unusual and makes a great impression on entering the cottage.

Past Customer,

Really convenient location - for the pub, post box, fish and chips and walks on the beach. Even managed to get to the local church on Sunday and enjoyed meeting the friendly local people who made us feel very much at home.

Past Customer,

We loved our holiday at The Bolthole. The cottage is perfect for us and our dog. Beadnell is our favourite seaside resort, the beach is perfect.

Past Customer,

This is a perfect, quiet location for walks north and south. The pubs, cafe and shop are all we need. Seahouses within easy reach and it's on a bus route.

Past Customer,

I have both contracted and stayed in holiday lets worldwide and the attention to detail in this cottage is exceptional. The location and surrounding facilities are excellent: parking, outside patio, proximity to eateries, seaside.

Past Customer,

Location

Beadnell is a small village centred around a picturesque harbour and crescent-shaped sandy beach which is very popular with families, walkers and watersports enthusiasts. It is quieter than neighbouring Seahouses but still has a village shop and a couple of decent pubs where food is served and a good pint. There is also a cafe which transforms into a bistro by night.
