“Fantastic well equipped very spacious house in a fantastic location next to Beadnell Beach”
Reviewed October 20, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Booked Benthall House for 6 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 dogs for a birthday surprise. The house is in a fantastic location just 1 minute walk from beautiful Beadnell Beach. It is very spacious with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a lovely big kitchen dining area with added sunroom, utility room and an upstairs comfy lounge with fantastic views of the sea. There is also an enclosed balcony off the lounge. The house is exceptionally clean, homely and so well equipped with everything you need including tea, coffee, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, towels etc etc. The owner Sam, was there to meet us with a warm welcome and the key, and a delicious chocolate cake, wine and biscuits which was very thoughtful and much appreciated! There is wifi throughout, a lovely big secure enclosed garden at the back with a large patio and outdoor furniture, and lots of parking at the front. It is a short walk into Beadnell village. If you're thinking of booking this property then don't hesitate as you won't be disappointed. We would definitely go back again.

“Simply perfect!”
Reviewed October 6, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Our criteria was a fully equipped, dog friendly holiday rental with ample space very close to the beach. Benthall House scored a 10/10 in every aspect.
The owners attention to detail here is exemplary and as far as facilities are concerned this house has everything you will need to make your stay an enjoyable one.
We were greeted with a lovely Coffee cake, bottle of wine and treats for the dogs.
If you are seeking a clean attractive and comfortable base, close to the most beautiful attractions this fantastic county has to offer, then look no further.

“So spacious”
Reviewed August 4, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Benthall House recently for a family holiday to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday – six adults, one toddler and a large dog.

The house was ideal for our needs – plenty of space for us to spread out and only two minutes’ walk to the beach. The kitchen diner had everything we needed so we only ate out once the whole week. (The Craster Arms - vg). The beds were very comfortable and the showers had good water pressure and plenty of hot water. We’ve had many family holidays where either the beds, the showers or both were far from perfect so we all gave full marks for this!

Plenty of seating both inside and out and safety gates on the stairs. Having a dog with us, the utility room was very useful for preparing his food and drying him off after he’d been in the sea. The washer was also made good use of, but we didn’t need the dryer as the weather was so good.

The welcome pack was a lovely touch – wine, cake, biscuits and even dog treats. We didn’t get to use the barbecue as, although the weather was fair, it wasn’t quite warm enough but we took the folding chairs, windbreak and beach towels to the beach each day with a picnic.

Seahouses is a ten minute drive (or half hour walk) away with a great greengrocers and a well-stocked Co-op. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants and take-aways there too.

We took Sam’s recommendation and booked a caterer for the birthday meal. I had some reservations as we’d never done anything like that before, but Adele and her daughter were fantastic. Very organised and friendly, they prepared wonderful food (with enough leftovers for a meal the following day) washed up and left us with coffee and home-made truffles. So much more relaxing than trying to get a toddler and dog to behave in a restaurant!

We’ve visited this area before so we took the opportunity to revisit Lindisfarne, Alnmouth and Alnwick (excellent butcher and of course Barter Books). Mostly though we were content to sit in the garden or on the beach and relax.

I would definitely recommend Benthall House to anyone visiting this area with a large party of people and we hope to be back ourselves before too long.

“Perfect for our walking holiday”
Reviewed July 16, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We're old hands at Beadnell holidays, and this house was perfect for our walking week. Lovely and light, bright and well equipped. Plenty of space for wet gear....but we didn't need it as the weather was fab. Half of our group walked 50+ miles over the week....the other half (hardy souls) walked 100+ miles because they walked back and didn't catch the bus Stunning sunrises at 4.20am......if you're up at that hour☀️ Enough parking space for all five cars. Nice garden and patio for evening drinks. We had a great time!

“Just as we imagined it would be.”
Reviewed June 4, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The seven people in our group and the Sprocker Spaniel had a very enjoyable and relaxing week even though the weather was at times a little on the chilly side. The house was exactly as we imagined and hoped it would be with everything we needed.
One advantage of the very windy weather on a couple of the days meant that the waves were fantastic on our walk from Craster to Dunstanborough Castle and the sun made it even more memorable. We will look forward to returning some time in the future because for some it was their first time in Northumberland and one visit is definitely not enough

“Beautiful home from home and More!!”
Reviewed April 21, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Really lovely house with plenty of inside and outside space. Welcomed by owner who left us cake wine shortbread dog biscuits and poo bags. Fantastic sitting on the veranda over looking the sea - was a bit chilly when we stayed and there was even rugs for our knees to sit outside. Local pub and cafe great and friendly, and the little store sold most things.
