Reviews

Although property was extremely warm and in an excellent location, we did experience several problems and found the lack of off road parking a nightmare as the house is on a blind bend! I think general housekeeping is the problem. On arrival I wanted to use the fridge in the laundry room and, on opening the door, a huge freezer box fell on my head! This had obviously been pushed up on top without consideration of whether there was enough safe storage space! A framed picture in one of the bedrooms fell off the wall onto the pillow! Good job my granddaughter was sleeping in another room. The wall fixture holding the rope from the ceiling clothes maiden was loose and dangerous and I had to report it. The management guy did come out the next day and tightened it. The kitchen blind was down on the window sill on our arrival, again I had to spend time emailing and calling the office. The kitchen window handle fell off and was a security problem. One of the showers had a broken shower head holder - this was reported and a new attachment was ordered but was never installed! This meant that the en suite for that bedroom couldn’t be used. The Venetian blind in the en Suite twin room was broken.Lots of crockery and drinking glasses were missing, again I spent time contacting the office as I wasn’t prepared to have money taken against these missing items. The baking sheets and grills were filthy. Tiny dishwasher, inadequate for 8 people. Too few pans. Garden is much, much smaller than shown on the website. - 16th April 2019
Wow what can I say about this house?! Absolutely fabulous - can't speak highly enough this property - it is gorgeous - looks recently refurbished to a very high standard and spotlessly clean - loved it from the moment we arrived. Haven't visited this area before, can totally see why so many people return. It is so quaint and peaceful and everywhere is dog friendly, we will definitely return. Loved it, loved it, loved it!! - 18th September 2018
We've stayed there twice before. The house as we knew, was very well equipped with some excellent items and gadgets. Bathrooms very nicely tiled and fitted out; showers good. It is just beginning to show a bit of wear and tare with some locks not working, some doors sticking, a few floors creaking. It was disappointing that the previous occupants (who we think were the owners) had turned off the hot water, which was boilingly hot when switched on, and left some items randomly stacked in the boot room/ garage. Also some of the kitchen surfaces were not as clean as they could be and there were crumbs under the breakfast bar and on the dining table. The water issue was resolved by the agents after the 3rd day. Location for beaches, village and sea views as always superb. Craster Arms pretty good for food and dog friendly; Saltwater Café has changed chef and staff since last visit---not as customer friendly as it was. - 14th September 2018
We arrived at Portland in the pouring rain, fortunately we know Beadnell so no problem. The house is beautiful, overlooking the sea and a short walk to the harbour, beach and pub. There was every comfort you could imagine, bit concerned about the astro turf and the dog though, but no problem there either. With two king and one twin bed on the first floor, all ensuite, it was perfect for Mum, Dad and the teenagers, whilst we had the second floor which gave us privacy when we required it. The kitchen and dining area were plenty big enough for us all, and there were games and cards to save us from TV viewing in the evening. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms spacious and well decorated. The only slight downside was the driveway as it was downright difficult to get two vehicles in, so one had to be parked across the road. The rental was slightly on the expensive side, but all in all well worth the extra, we all had a great time. - 21st August 2018
An excellent house within a beautiful location, great facilities for all our family. We had a fantastic holiday. - 31st July 2018
The house had everything we needed for a party of eight people, including two children who loved the play items in the shed. All the rooms were light, airy and comfortable and instructions for all the appliances were available. The weather was beautiful so we were able to enjoy the garden with the table and chairs and BBQ. The position was lovely with views of the sea to the front and a short walk/drive to the beach. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. - 10th July 2018
We had a fabulous stay at Portland the house was perfect size for us (5adults1child) plenty of space. The views are amazing. Beadnell is a lovely area good beach and the Craster arms is a lovely welcoming place to eat. - 10th April 2018
Our second time staying in the lovely Beadnell area in this great house. We can’t fault it in any way other than the fact we wish we could afford to stay in it more often! - 17th January 2018
Couldn’t fault anything wrong with the cottage, everything was amazing and the beds and lining were of high quality. Would definitely recommend this to everyone. The road needs a speed restriction on it as drivers go to fast. Would love to stay there in the summer months. The young lad that stayed loved his own bedroom ensuite and the television. Bless him he left his £2.50 on the bedside table. - 25th October 2017
Portland is situated in an ideal position to enjoy both beaches in Beadnell. The property is spacious, clean and offers an excellent holiday home. All furnishings and linens are of an excellent quality. We'll certainly be back!! - 15th August 2017
We had a lovely stay at Portland, we were two families with children ranging from age 4 to age 16. The property was very spacious, immaculately clean - 8th August 2017
This was our second stay at Portland and two years on from our first stay we were impressed at how well the property had been maintained. Very comfortable for a family of 6 (three teenagers plus 12 year old). Great garden for sitting out. Very good location. - 25th July 2017
We had a lovely stay and enjoyed being so close to an excellent beach. We found the house to be very well equipped and bright and airy. - 20th June 2017
Lovely,clean house with everything we could possibly need.A wonderful,relaxing week spent by the beach with our golden retriever who enjoyed many a swim! Made our holiday! - 25th April 2017
A great place to stay, the house has everything you may need and is well located. Our extended family stayed for a week in April and had a great time exploring Beadnell as well the local area. The spectacular morning sunrises across the sea at the front of the house were stunning. - 11th April 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this perfect holiday property. Lots of little extras were provided to cater for all of our needs. Without hesitation I thoroughly recommend this property for gatherings of family or friends. Faultless! - 24th March 2017
We loved Portland. The house was clean, comfortable and the decor was lovely. Location was fab with an amazing view. We Would love to stay again. The owners had thought of everything, we had all we could need and they had even provided extras such as body boards and some wet suits which you could use whilst staying. The children loved the house, it was light, airey and had an enclosed garden they could play in. Perfect! - 3rd September 2016
We stayed as a family group of 6 adults and 2 small children. The weather was mixed....sometimes fantastic, sometimes a bit wet. We had a GREAT time, largely because the accommodation was so good. Cooking was a pleasure. The garden was good because of the artificial lawn, something I would normally turn my nose up at. The shed held all the beach equipment anyone could need. The service from Stay Northumbria was excellent when we had a minor problem. The location couldn't have been better. Expensive....yes.....but split 3 ways between 3 families it would be value for money. This time it was my treat. - 30th August 2016
The attention to detail in this property is excellent. The first time I have stayed self catering and felt that I was in my own kitchen! Well done you have thought of everything. - 16th August 2016
Lovely house that feels like it's given you value for money. Coastal walks up through Seahouses to Bamburgh or down the coast to Dunstanborough Castle. Nice village with a decent pub (beer festival on when we arrived!), local cafe, shop and Fish and Chip shop so pretty much everything you need. House was clean and welcoming on arrival, and everyone was happy to pick rooms with their own ensuites. Lots of quality fixtures and fittings, and we definitely made us of the second fridge freezer in the utility room for the wine! We had great weather which made the BBQ used 5 days out of 7 and overall a really enjoyable and relaxing break. - 10th August 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed a week at Portland. The property is in a great location - within easy reach of many local tourist attractions. The house is very well equipped and feels like a home. The furnishings have been chosen with care and are of a very high quality. Having outdoor and beach equipment to use was also a nice touch, whilst we didn't take advantage of everything available it was comprehensive. All bedrooms had generous en suite bathrooms and the sound proofing in the house was good. The heating system worked very well. We arrived on a fairly chilly day but the house warmed up very quickly and we were never cold. The garden was a safe area for small children and our grand daughter enjoyed playing there. I am sure that we will return. - 28th June 2016
We had a wonderful week in Portland! The views from our balcony over the sea were stunning! The house was better than a home from home and had everything you could wish for, and more besides! The bedrooms were spacious and beautifully appointed with plenty of storage and lovely comfy beds! An added bonus was that each bedroom had its own ensuite bath or shower room so no queuing for morning showers! Our whippet settled in straightaway and there was even a welcome pack for her with biscuits. The enclosed back garden meant the little ones could play safely. There were toys and even a netball post which was use daily! Because the weather was kind we managed a couple of barbecues on the patio. It was just great! I would not hesitate to recommend the property to anyone and would love to return! Thank you! - 15th June 2016
Comfortable beds. Good bathroom facilities. Nice seating area and conducive to relaxing. Weather not good enough to use garden but it was a pretty and enclosed space. Only room for one car parked off road and no space outside the house so we had to park much further down the road. Real luxury having a television in the bedrooms; the kids loved it! - 7th October 2015
You usually get what you pay for. The house is fitted out to a very high specification. The location is perfect, you can see the house from the beach. Castle view from the top bathroom. A great holiday. - 26th August 2015
We had a great holiday staying in Portland. Everything anyone could need or want was catered for, it was simply lovely. The bedrooms were so comfy and spacious with a lovely en suite each. Superb. - 31st July 2015
We would definatly recommend this holiday home it had everything you could possibly need . We loved the doggie welcome packs and towels to wipe them down they were a lovely touch . The house was spotless and gorgeous . Loved it - 19th June 2015
