“PERFECT!”

The Mules is a beautiful property - immaculately clean and modern (to be honest, it looked as if no one had ever used it!). The whole property has lots of little decorative touches that made it a delight to stay in. Really well equipped and with strong WiFi and very comfortable beds. We arrived to find fresh milk, cookies and crisps (thank you Karen!) and a note to welcome us. Karen has kept in regular contact and is friendly and helpful.
We are regular visitors to Newbiggin so had no problems finding things to do but there are also a variety of local info leaflets available as well as a well stocked DVD library and lots of books (including the one I am currently reading, funnily enough!) and games.
Our only problem was that we were there for 3 days - could happily have stayed a week or more!

“Fab value for money”
Reviewed August 31, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have stayed at The Mules several time now and have even booked again for December. Always our first choice instead of a hotel when we visit the area. Karen, the owner, could not be more welcoming or accomodating.
Another comfortable stay in a spotless property with everything you would need for a short or longer stay. Definately a firm recommendation from us !

“Wonderful Cottage by the sea”
Reviewed August 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Stayed here with my wife and two grandchildren for 6 nights.
The owner, Karen, gave us a very warm welcome on arrival and was extremely helpful.
The cottage is ideally situated for the beach, local shops pubs and resterants, all of which are only a few steps from the door.
If you haven't been to Newbiggin before try the Italian Due Fratelli, which is across the street. Great food at very reasonable prices.
The cottage is spotlessly clean and has everything that you need for a holiday home.
Can't wait to book again.

“Fantastic accomodation - a real home from home”
Reviewed August 8, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

My husband and I spent a lovely restful week at the Mules at the beginning of July and despite the rather mixed weather had a fantastic holiday.
The owner, Karen, advised us that we could probably have the property earlier than the time stated for arrival, so we rang her once we had arrived and she came straight over. She gave us a guided tour of the property and told us of some good places locally to eat. She followed this up a little later via a text with phone numbers to call to reserve tables.
Not that you would really need to dine out if you didn't want to as the kitchen is so well equiped and there is a Co-op very handy just down the road.
The property has lovely modern furniture and has a very contemporary feel to it. It has a lovely big dining table, a feature often lacking in holiday lets we have found, and comfy sofas in the lounge/diner.
All the bedrooms are tastefully decorated and beautifully furnished, although we only used the one. The bathroom, and indeed the whole property, is extremely clean and has a shower over the bath.
Newbiggin was slightly disappointing but if the weather had been better the Mules is in the ideal location for spending some time on the beach. We used it as a base to explore the rest of Northumberland visiting Berwick, Lindisfarne, Bamburgh, Alnwick, Seahouses, Amble, Hexham, Morpeth and Newcastle.
