“What great hidden gem!”
Reviewed June 5, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We're a family of 4 who stayed here for a week and we loved it! As soon as we stepped through the door, it was clear Elaine had made a real effort to make the house as pleasant and attractive to stay in as possible. There was a wonderful nautical/seaside theme to the rooms, with picutres of Newbiggin, jars of shells and sea-side-y items all around the house.

Elaine herself was lovely when we arrived, showing us around the house and chatting to our 2 girls very enthusiastically! She'd very kindly left us tea and coffee and ice creams for the girls - thank you! There were also games, DVDs and books for us all to enjoy, which was a real nice touch.

Newbiggin itself is a lovely, quiet, un-touristy seaside town, with a great beach in a beautiful bay. It's perfect for exploring Northumberland; it's situated just off the A189 coastal road, which offers some splendid views and easy access to everywhere in the area you might want to go. The house itself is only 2 streets away from the beach, meaning it's really easy to go and spend some time down there.

All in all we had a wonderful holiday and we're really grateful to Elaine for all the effort she went to to make it so lovely. Definitely on our "go back again" list!

“A Home from Home.”
Reviewed May 30, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This 'Bolt Hole by the beach' really lives up to its name. It offers a great stretch of beach (2 mins ) with well maintained flat promenade providing a picturesque access to lovely coffee shops local amenities and scenic coastal walks. Within short driving distance to many country towns Amble Alnwick & castle Rothbury 7 Morpeth all with their own charm. 'Woodhorn' mining museum & country park on doorstep a must. Plenty of choice for good food on the move. Home made soups delicious. I travelled alone for three weeks to visit elderly mum and it was a real home from home with Elaine the perfect welcome host.

We stayed here in the February school hols as a family of four. What a beautifully decorated property. It was absolutely spotless with everything we needed. Elaine had kindly left us milk, tea & coffee & toiletries, which we thought was a nice touch. Just a few mins walk to the beach and near to the town centre. We wouldn't hesitate to return.

What a lovely welcome we received from Elaine , who showed us the house and where everything was and worked. Lovely touches like milk in the fridge, tea, coffee and biscuits in the cupboard.
Spotlessly clean, lovely fluffy towels.
All in All a lovely house that we would go back to again.
We used the house as a base as my husband was having an op in the near by Wansbeck Hospital.

“A very good holiday accommodation experience.”
Reviewed January 12, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

I booked this holiday cottage for my son and his family, visiting from Ireland over the Christmas holiday period. The accommodation was very good, and the property owner could not have been more considerate and/or helpful. This whole holiday rental experience being completely satisfactory, and one which I expect to re-book later this year.
