“Perfect family anniversary experience”
Reviewed April 26, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed as a family group of 8 adults and 3 children, from the start we could feel the family atmosphere as we entered this superb house. As we admired the space, decor and views we came across the welcome pack in the kitchen/diner which was a very pleasant and much appreciated surprise which set the tone for a very pleasant family weekend. We had a great family meal in the large dining room where we all could be together whilst preparing in the open kitchen, the children exploring the superb well equipped bedrooms or in the games/ cinema room... Brilliant for them too! The house was so nice you could be excused for locking the door and just enjoying the whole experience inside but we didn't and walked to the nearby beach past the golf course, farmers fields with farm animals and berry picking on the way. We all will remember our stay here not just for the anniversary but the ambience of the whole package... Credit to the owners!

“Lovely house with stunning views”
Reviewed March 13, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Beautiful well appointed house with stunning views towards Dunstunburgh Castle. Six bedrooms and five bathrooms so ideal for large groups with comfortable and versatile accommodation for eating and relaxing. Good communication from friendly owners. Situated in a village with a pub, hotel and within a mile of a Links Golf Course. Ideal touring area for Alnwick, Bamburgh and Lindisfarne. 20 minute drive to Alnmouth where you can catch a train to Edinburgh (60mins). Thoroughly recommended.

“Great getaway”
Reviewed January 27, 2015 for a stay in October 2014

Fantastic property for a large group with plenty of room for socialising and with the large kitchen catering for everyone is easy.
Comfortable bedrooms with mostly en suites add to a relaxed stay. This is a great location for views, pubs and scenery and no matter what the weather you will enjoy your stay.

“Beautiful property”
Reviewed October 11, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Fantastic property with views to die for. Marvellous house for 10 of us to stay as we were attending a wedding at Newton Hall. 6 beds and 5 baths - fantastic. The accommodation is beautiful and everything is top class. Would definitely book again - brilliant for larger parties

“Luxury accomodation with unrivalled views”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Set in a stunning location overlooking Dunstanburgh Castle, you open you curtains to one of the finest views in Northumberland. Nevermind the weather at this time of year as you are warmed by the cosy underfloor heating and log-burners. The property has been finished throughout to a very high standard. There is enough space for large groups to spread out and find their own spaces whether it is in the well appointed kitchen with large dining table just right for entertaining, or one of the two sitting rooms. The Lookout is tastefully furnished and decorated with calming colours. Traveling with family, we enjoyed walks down to beach and nearby Craster, via Dunstanburgh Castle. The Greys Inn, just round the corner offers a friendly welcome and serves food together with a good range of guest ales. A great base for exploring this area of Northumberland such as Holy Island, Alnwick and Bamburgh. A return visit is assured.

“Excellent accomodation - amazing views”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Had a great week at The Lookout. The accomodation is a very high standard throughout. The kitchen / dining area is great for big groups to get together, and the views are spectacular when cooking! Only a short walk to the lovely beach and well signposted pathways for walks along the coast. The area is also great for cycling. Our party covered ages 10-82 and there was something for everyone in the area. I would definitely recommend this property.
No off road parking avilable, despite being advertised, but this didn't cause us any problems. There was always space on the raod side.
