Build quality of the property, internal furnishings and accessories are first class and we were all very impressed. Also the welcome pack was most appreciated as we have not had one in the various places we have had for some years. It was our first time with Coquet Cottages but will not be our last!Escape the ordinary read our guest book
Tips from a local
Take a stroll along to Box Pizza, just south of the village and an easy walk. This bohemian courtyard has pretty twinkly lights and colourful seating, serving freshly made pizzas from their pizza oven. It’s something a bit different and an excuse to build up an appetite before dinner!
Tips from a local
The Salt Water Cafe is a gorgeous new cafe almost opposite the cottage – very convenient! They serve fabulous breakfasts, tasty lunches and open up as a bistro on an evening. They’re fully licenced and serve all local produce using suppliers from nearby Craster, Seahouses and Beadnell.
Tips from a local
Drive up the A1 to the causeway and visit Lindisfarne Castle and Priory on Holy Island.
The Lindisfarne Brewery and gift shop is lovely where you’ll find tasty goodies to bring home with you for friends and family – and for yourself!
Please be extra careful and check the tide times for the causeway, and don’t underestimate how fast the tide comes in! It’s a regular occurrence for people to be stranded and have to be rescued by the Coastguard because they ignored the tide timetable and thought they could get through when the tide was coming in – cars flooded with seawater are completely written off!
Tips from a local
Dine at The Joiners Arms in Newton by the Sea. Just 5 minutes’ drive from the cottage, the Joiner’s Arms is a family-friendly, dog friendly pub and restaurant, serving excellent pub grub and with a great selection of spirits behind the bar for a wee tipple in front of the roaring fire. They also offer takeaway fish and chips if you wanted to stay in but not have to cook.
Tips from a local
Visit the stunning beaches between Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh Castle. Beadnell Bay is beautiful and great for a summertime paddle and some good old sandcastle building.
Head to Newton by the Sea and enjoy the stunning view along the bay with Dunstanburgh Castle in the distance. When passing The Square just before you step down on to the beach, don’t miss The Ship Inn nestled in the corner, it’s unmissable, they have their own micro brewery and are renowned for their famous crab sandwiches!

A Little Note from the Owners:
“Welcome to Mariners Cottage a beautifully welcoming home set in the centre of Beadnell Village. We bought the property some 5 years ago, we love the location its perfect for those nice walks on the beach and a stone’s throw away from the pubs for a well earned drink of your favourite tipple!
We’ve given Mariners Cottage a beach cottage feel and concentrated on ensuring that people with walking difficulties are able to experience all that Beadnell and the surrounding area has to offer by adding a wet room bathroom next to the downstairs bedroom, allowing everyone to enjoy their time here.
We love Mariner’s Cottage and very much hope that you enjoy your stay here.”
