Discover South Riggs – a luxury property in Bedlington for business travellers and leisure-seekers.

In a place in which hotels are scarce and accommodation options outside of pubs-with-rooms are limited, South Riggs provides visitors to Bedlington and the town’s surrounding areas – including Northumberland and the North East coast – with a stylish and convenient place to stay.

Created by Rachel Wellbelove – founder of FlexHomes – the two-bedroom property has been purposely designed to meet the needs of those visiting for business, or as part of a holiday getaway, and goes beyond the standard – and offering – of traditional rental accommodation.

“I’m an avid fan of Northumberland and a frequent traveller to the area for business, yet I’d always struggled to find somewhere to stay that ticked all the boxes,” says Rachel.

“Taken by Bedlington’s historic charm and impressed by its convenient location, I knew I wanted to create something special here and help put this hidden gem of a town on the map – and so the idea to create a stand-out property here that both business travellers and leisure guests could enjoy was born.

“Ultimately, I wanted to offer people a comfortable and relaxed base while on their travels. An inviting space that allowed them to combine working with exploring the local area and taking time out, as they would do in their own home – and South Riggs is just that.”

Perfect for those who value familiar comforts, peace and quiet, privacy and flexibility while they travel, the fully-equipped house rental is made special with high-spec features and modern interiors – including two large luxury bedrooms, secure off-road parking, a dedicated work area and outdoor space for a distinct home-away-from-home feel.

Where it is

You’ll find South Riggs tucked away on a peaceful residential street in Bedlington, just a short 300-metre walk from the town’s much-loved Front Street, home to several independent shops and boutiques, cosy pubs and restaurants.

The semi-detached property’s convenient location also means the seaside town of Blyth and business hot spots, such a Blyth Port, lie just 10 minutes away by car, making it the perfect choice for business travellers temporarily placed in the area on long or short-term projects, visiting for training, attending meetings and more. 

Holidaymakers – including couples, friends and families – are also well placed to explore the nearby towns and cities of Newcastle, Morpeth and rural Rothbury, as well as much-loved villages along the North East’s coastline, such as Cresswell, Whitley Bay and Tynemouth – all of which can be reached in under half an hour by car.  


South Riggs provides enough space to accommodate up to four people, complemented by contemporary, high-spec interiors, luxurious décor and quality finishing touches throughout.

At the heart of the property, guests will find a modern kitchen, fully-equipped with essential kitchen appliances and added luxuries to make cooking and dining in an easy and enjoyable experience. The space also benefits from a large window, offering views out on to the property’s courtyard.

An oven/hob, fridge freezer, kettle, microwave and toaster are all included, along with quality cookware and crockery, a dishwasher, washing machine/dryer and a Nespresso coffee machine.

Elsewhere on the ground floor, guests will discover a pristine family bathroom – complete with bathtub with overhead drench shower, vanity unit and a fully-lit mirror – as well as a sumptuous living room to unwind in.

Stand-out features include plush leather sofas for lounging, a velvet armchair for curling up with a good book and a 55-inch 4K HD Smart Fire TV for entertainment – all complemented by an elegant, neutral colour scheme and soft lighting to create a relaxing ambiance.

Connected is a good-sized dining room for enjoying meals, socialising and even working. Here, guests can dine and catch up around the large oak table, or tick off tasks in the comfort of a dedicated work space, with which the room shares.

Complete with a generous 24-inch monitor, HDMI cable for easy connectivity, super-fast Wi-Fi and a comfortable chair, the specially-created area ensures guests can work efficiently and easily while enjoying their stay.


On the first floor, guests can take their pick from two bedrooms – a master, which offers a king-size bed, and a second bedroom complete with a super king bed, which can be split into two single beds upon request. For maximum comfort, both beds feature premium mattresses and bed linen.

Designed with comfort and functionality in mind, each room also features ample storage space – perfect for those enjoying a longer stay at South Riggs – along with modern wall panelling, a 43-inch TV and a vanity desk.


Opting for a private full house rental like South Riggs means guests can take advantage of perks such as ample driveway parking and a spacious garage with an electric door.

Owners of electric vehicles are catered for, too, thanks to an EV charging point at the front of the property. In an area in which such features are near non-existent, this handy addition makes South Riggs stand out from the crowd.

Guests visiting during the warmer months can take advantage of the property’s private rear courtyard, which features outdoor furniture. Perfect for alfresco dining and unwinding on warm evenings, the intimate space is made extra-special with outdoor lighting and even a canter lever washing line.
