About Tickle Cottage

Tickle Cottage is an 18th Century period cottage in the heart of Beadnell, opposite the village green and St Ebb's Church and just a short walk from the beach. With space for four people to sleep in two bedrooms, it provides an idyllic escape for both couples and families who want to experience the staggering beauty of the Northumberland coast. As well as being just a short stroll from the beach, local shop and cafe/bistro, the Towers Pub and Craster Arms, which are family and dog-friendly, are nearby if you feel like a relaxed drink or a tasty meal you did not have to cook yourself.

The Northumberland coast is magnificent. Soft sandy beaches fringe clear waters with ancient coastal forts and castles adding an extra touch of drama to the scenery. Beadnell is a lovely seaside village with curved bay sheltered by dunes and a stone fort. Kids love building sandcastles and playing on the sand, or poking about in the rock pools by Beadnell Point. The calm water makes it a favourite not only for swimming but also for water sports like kitesurfing, kayaking and paddle boarding. Despite its charms, it rarely feels busy at Beadnell Bay, and in autumn and winter, it is not unusual for visitors to be the only ones on the beach.

One of the many benefits of staying at Tickle Cottage is its location midway along the Northumberland coast, putting a string of beautiful sights within easy reach. Bamburgh, with its magnificent castle, is only five miles north of the cottage, while Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve is not much further. Guests can take a boat trip to Holy Island or the Farne Islands, where the quantity of birds and wildlife - including colonies of seals and puffins, is impressive. The Northumberland Coast Path leads hikers to incredible views, while long-distance cycle routes include The Coast and Castles, Sea to Sea, Hadrian's Cycleway and the Pennines Cycleway. Even Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne are within reach, so if you wanted to spice up your peaceful seaside holiday with a day of shopping and city entertainments, then you can.

The owners of Tickle Cottage have taken care to retain the character of the period cottage while ensuring it does not lack modern comforts and style. It is a fantastic place to visit at any time of the year.

Accommodation Comprises:

Tickle Cottage was built over two hundred years ago and retains original features including an impressive fireplace. It is child and pet-friendly, with one well-behaved dog welcome with prior agreement from the owner. The cottage faces the village green and church and sleeps up to seven guests in three bedrooms. As well as being just a short stroll from the beach, local shop and cafe/bistro, the Towers Pub and Craster Arms, which are family and dog-friendly, are nearby if you feel like a relaxed drink or a tasty meal you did not have to cook yourself.


  • If you stay at Tickle Cottage in summer then the lovely sitting room will quickly have you booking another stay in colder weather, just so that you can see if the fireplace with log burner is as cosy as it looks (it is!). There is a sofa and two armchairs to seat four people, and SMART television with catch-up and DVD player. The room is at the front of the cottage, with a window overlooking the church and green. There is a dining area with a table and four chairs.
  • The kitchen is small but perfectly formed with a good complement of utensils and appliances. There is an additional utility room in the courtyard that is just outside the kitchen door, housing a washer/dryer and freezer, as well a convenient extra sink for washing sandy feet and paws.
  • Twin downstairs bedroom with two single beds.
  • Shower room with a WC, handbasin and heated towel rail.


  • The master bedroom suite is beautiful and romantic. It takes up almost the entire top floor, featuring exposed beams with a chandelier above a roll-top bath. The king-sized bed is under a dormer window so you can lie in bed and see the stars, and there is a wall-mounted flat screen television so you can relax in the bath and watch your favourite show.
  • A separate family shower room has a walk-in shower, heated towel rail, WC and vanity with a handbasin.

Outside: The cottage has a private courtyard with a table and four chairs and a barbecue at the rear of the property. Off-street parking available.

Additional Information: All utilities, including WiFi are included. Beds are made up for arrival and bath towels are provided, but guests will need to bring beach towels if they are required. A travel cot and high chair are available if needed - please ask when booking and make sure you bring bedding and linen for the cot. Smoking is not permitted in Tickle Cottage.
