Neighborhood
Driftwood is located in Beadnell - a charming village right on the Northumberland coast. Ideal for seaside stays, the village is set at the end of a stunning stretch of sandy shores. At the North end of the bay is the harbour and to the South you’ll find huge sand dunes which go on for miles. Gather all of the family together to enjoy the renowned watersports on offer. From surfing and sailing to scuba diving and bodyboarding, you won’t get bored of things to do at Beadnell Bay!

If you want to get active during your stay, Beadnell is also ideal for walking as it boasts great routes along the coastline with unrivalled views. You can also relax at one of the many restaurants on offer. At the Craster Arms you can enjoy a drink and food within a building which dates back to the 15th century.

Beadnell is just four miles from Bamburgh so you can easily explore other areas within Northumberland during your stay. Here you can head to England’s most northerly land-based lighthouse where there are incredible views of the Holy Island.

You can also visit Bamburgh Castle, a striking Grade I listed building which has stood on the Northumberland coastline for over 1,400 years. Known as one of the finest castles in the country, there is a wealth of history to uncover during your visit.

Getting Around
Driftwood is within walking distance of all that Beadnell had to offer.

If you plan on visiting other towns and villages during your stay, hop on the Arriva X18 route which travels to Newcastle with stops in Amble and Alnwick amongst others.

The nearest train station to Beadnell is at Chathill which is 3.7 miles away.

We really enjoyed our stay at Driftwood. The property has an excellent location and had everything needed for 5 of us plus the dog. Our only slight criticism would be, we were unable to use the en-suite shower as the shower head is broken, the tiles and grout also need a good clean. I appreciate we had only booked for 3 days but we didn't enjoy the garden as much as we had hoped as the grass hadn't been cut. Finally, the garden furniture is in real need of some TLC. This aside, we still really enjoyed our break.

The Driftwood was a real home from home. It was a great size for our party of 7 plus a dog. The location was fabulous and a great base to explore from. Hosts were always responsive and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property and we hope to return again.

We only had one key which was a problem. <br/>One of our party went back to the house, feeling unwell. She had to leave the door unlocked so we could get in later. Not ideal.

Our family have absolutely loved our little stay at driftwood. House was perfect for us with beach, rock pools and pubs within walking distance. Hosts were very nice with some good recommendations for food etc inside the house. Nice easy check in and out, just right for our winter get away. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a calm and relaxed get away within beautiful surroundings. Thanks

This is a nice house on an estate which has many holiday homes. Off season it felt like a bit of a ghost town but was very quiet.<br/>Beach walkable and lovely.<br/>Good enclosed garden, abut muddy buy it was November.<br/>Three downsides.<br/>The single beds in the twin room are very uncomfortable. Springs can be felt along one’s body when lying down. <br/>Dirty towels were left on the floor behind the door of one of one of the double rooms.<br/>Lastly the boiler stopped working on day two.<br/>As you may well be aware this was sorted within 12 hours after a lot of calls to Home and Stay and to air band b. We were given totally incorrect instructions to pour oil into the boiler. Fortunately there was no oil and I assume whoever I spoke to, several times, thought we had a generator not a boiler. Had we started to mess around as suggested this would probably have ruined the boiler and could have been very dangerous. <br/>We were told the owner had been contacted and said to pour oil in but this cannot have been true.

We have just returned from Driftwood in Beadnell Northumberland . This home did not let us down it was perfect for our family of 6 adults and a baby plus 3 dogs. Plenty of space for all , the lounge was cosy with patio doors leading to a huge enclosed garden perfect for our fur babies and our Toddler to run around. Kitchen fully equipped for our needs. The house was nice and warm throughout. 4 Bedrooms suited all of us one en suite all nice and clean, perhaps mattress toppers would make the beds a bit comfier, nice white fluffy towels. The position was perfect walking distance from the Beach and village centre and shops and pubs. We all loved it and would not hesitate in booking again.

Location is brilliant - not far from the beach and lovely places to eat. It is a comfortable, clean and warm house.<br/><br/>We would have liked a few more loo rolls and dishwasher tablets.

Clean and comfortable home with lots of space. Good sized garden. Great location within walking distance for the beach and venue ‘The Landing’. We have had a lovely mini break and enjoyed fabulous weather too.

A lovely 4 bed house with plenty of space for our party of 6 plus a dog, well equipped kitchen, nice garden space and comfortable beds. fabulous location just a short walk from huge, beautiful beach.<br/>Local pubs and restaurants were a little expensive, but very high standard. we enjoyed an excellent meal at The Joiners Arms in High Newton on Sea.<br/>Only criticism is that the main bathroom sink plug was stuck and it was full of dirty water on our arrival. Despite leaving a phone message and following up with 2 phonecalls, the management company's promises of getting it sorted never materialised and the plug was still stuck and the sink still full of dirty water when we left. Not ideal, but we didn't let it spoil an otherwise enjoyable holiday.

We had a lovely time at this house, perfect for kids too with a big garden and lots of toys already there. Our only comment would be it could do with a bigger coffee pot!

Extremely comfortable and well equipped. A credit to the owner.<br/>Walking distance to the beach and eating places. <br/>Would book again.

Good location if you want to be in walking distance of the beach. Large enclosed garden. Garden furniture could have been cleaned and some of it was broken. Shower head in en-suite wasn’t working, we reported it but didn’t get a response. Main oven wasn’t working which made it very difficult to cook.
