Very well appointed property in an attractive seaside location.

5 of 5
The "welcome package" of cake and wine on our arrival was much appreciated following a lengthy journey. Benthall House more than exceeded our expectations in terms of its location, its furnishings and facilities. The sea view from the upstairs lounge and balcony is particularly attractive. Beadnell is a great place for exploring the Northumberland coast - the Farne Islands, Holy Island, Alnwick Castle to name but a few. This was a holiday that we will remember.

It was exactly as advertised. Modernised to a high spec. Very comfortable.

5 of 5
Excellent location. Used it as a base to explore the north east coast. Parking not a problem. Perfect for the 2 of us as we were only staying 2 nights. Any longer and perhaps more wardrobe space could be offered in the second bedroom? Great contact with the owner, very friendly and nothing was a problem. Would certainly recommend this apartment.
