Mr & Mrs Smith’s


This well-loved holiday home of local beach lovers, The Smith family, is both charming and laidback. Just a short walk from the dunes leading down to the sands at Bamburgh, Mr & Mrs Smith’s offers an effortless, but luxury, beach break. The owners delight in sharing their coastal space with like-minded style lovers, who are looking for a relaxed and family-friendly escape.

You’ll find a traditional style timber-clad home on the outside, but inside, touches of beach hut cool combine with all the needs of a family, all just a short walk from Bamburgh Castle, the village with its many eating out options and, of course, the wide sandy beach.

Guest Reviews

Great quality cottage in terms of cleanliness, furnishings and location, suited us well and would suit most.

We needed a dog friendly property, with an ideal location next to the beach. The cottage is of high quality.

Lovely cottage furnished and equipped to a very high standard. Perfectly situated across the road from the dunes leading down to beautiful Bamburgh beach and a short walk to the village. A great base for seeing all that Northumberland has to offer. Would highly recommend.

We had an amazing weekend in Mr & Mrs Smith’s cottage, it was so lovely to stay in such a comfortable, clean, relaxing house and the welcome pack was unexpected but very much appreciated. It was our first visit to the area and it certainly won’t be our last, the beaches are amazing and it was ideal for us as everywhere (or almost everywhere) we went was dog friendly. I will definitely have a look at the other properties you have recommended for us (although Mr & Mrs Smith’s will be hard to beat!) and will be looking to book another break soon.

This was our 3rd booking with Coastal Retreats and we are ALWAYS happy with our cottages, the comfort, the quality etc. Staff at Coastal Retreats are always chirpy and friendly and above all knowledgeable about the area and the cottages

The house was immaculate, full marks to the team

We have stayed in several of your retreats, always delighted. 10/10
