“A wonderful stay....”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

people found this review helpful

Me, my husband and two daughters stayed her in August 2013, August 2014 cant come soon enough for our return visit. To sum it up, its a beautiful location, out of the front door, within a couple of minutes your on the beach with rolling sand dunes and shallow paddling friendly sea. All ammenities on the doorstep, the locals are very friendly, plenty of places in the village to eat, drink, walk, relax etc, and by travelling a few miles out of the village you have the un-matchable county of Northumberland at your fett. I would recommend Alnwick Castle and Lindisfarne Island to those who have never been, but there is so much more to explore. We were met with a warm welcome from Nick the owner who is on hand if you need him. If your considering Northumberland, this is a good place to start.

Date of stay: August 2013

“The perfect holiday cottage for a family”
Reviewed May 24, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

people found this review helpful

This is a perfect family cottage in a charming friendly village on the coast of Northumberland. The cottage has everything you could possibly need or require and everything has been catered for right down to an emergency sewing kit.
I had 2 young children with me and the proximity to the beach could not have been better, it is less than a five minute walk. There are plenty of places to go to eat with young children both during the day and in the evening. We also found a small park at the bottom of the village which the children enjoyed, as well as endless walks and the local bus service to both Berwick and Newcastle stops outside the front door. The owner,Nick, could not have been more friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home from the minute we arrived.
All in all a beautiful cottage in a perfect location and I would recommend this holiday let to anyone.

“Beautiful, Charming Cosy Cottage”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

people found this review helpful

We spent a midweek break at this characterful cottage, with our two teenage boys. The cottage was delightful, and in a fantastic location with the beach almost directly on the doorstep. Nick (the owner) could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The cottage is very well equipped and of a high standard, the log fire was just what was needed after a chilly afternoon walk on the beautiful Alnmouth beach. All in all a little gem, would highly recommend a visit.
