A very well maintained cottage,clean and spacious. We had a great week and the weather was good. The beach is amazing and you can walk for miles. Lovely pubs in the surrounding area that take dogs.
Thank you we will book again.

“A perfect beach retreat for the whole family”

We stayed in Cowry Cottage between 27th Sep - 4 Oct '14 having been recommended highly by a friend. This scenario is always worrying, because if you dont enjoy the property, surroundings etc then your likely to resent the duff tip-off your were given.

I needn't have worried, right from the off I found the owner Susie to possess exceptional customer service skills and her communication throughout the booking and holiday was exemplary.

As busy working parents with 2 children (2yrs and 6mnths), we both decided that a trip abroad may be a stretch to far but wanted a break away from the house that we are all too familiar with now! The local area is beautiful, with a selection of 2 parks on you doorstep along with excellent fish and chips in Seahouses and fantastic beaches in Bamburgh (and all along the north east coast for that matter).

Plenty of activities (Train rides, pottery/arts, walks) to occupy little girls everyday within 40 mins drive or so, and even though it was on our doorstep, we still didn't have time to visit the beach in Beadnall.

The WiFi was excellent and was used to stream NetFlix and football matches through our iPad. Other facilities were also fantastic, with BBQ, comfy Sofas and all manner of games, books and DVDs already provided for guests!

The best compliment I can give to this house was like it was staying in a home away from home. Immaculate presentation and great layout mean't we have already booked up a return visit in 2015.

“Such a lovely holiday cottage, in a wonderful location”

We stayed over Christmas and had such a lovely holiday week at this fantastic cottage. Clean and tidy, the cottage is really well laid out with good quality furnishings and is a real home from home. The main bedroom is lovely with en suite shower room, the other bedrooms were also lovely for our children, all clean tidy and very comfy beds.

Beadnell bay is so beautiful and only five mins walk away, really lovely, you can even see the sea from the bedroom windows.

If you don't know the area you're in for a lovely surprise, it's got to be one of the best places in England to stay with so much to do, great beaches, castles, and lovely walks.

The Ship at Seahouses, Castle at Bamburgh, Ship at Low Newton and Jolly Fisherman at Craster are all great pubs worth a visit in the area. All in all we would highly recommend to all. Many thanks to the owners who are very kind and so helpful too.

We stayed here for 4 nights in-between Christmas and New Year. We are familiar with the area and have been any times but have not stayed in this house before.
We were really happy with the accommodation; everything was clean, modern and comfortable. The lounge/dining area and kitchen is all open plan and very spacious. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of pans, dishes, plates etc. Upstairs the beds were comfortable and decorated very nicely.
We'll definitely be staying here again. We were also really grateful that the owner let us book for only 4 nights as all other rentals insisted on 7 nights.

“So good we're planning on going back”
Reviewed October 28, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Fantastic house just a short walk from a wonderful beach at a very reasonable price. Well equipped for young families (a 5, 4 and 2 year old) and with a large open plan downstairs for all being together. It had children's cutlery and plates and mugs which was handy, along with the normal travel cots. Location was ideal for us for visiting Alnwick (20mins), Bamburgh (10mins), Edinburgh (2 hrs) and Newcastle (45mins).

House was very clean and we felt right at home. Was one of only a handful of places we've been where we think we might stay here again it was that good. We'll be recommending it to friends. Look them up on Facebook for more details and photos.

Highly recommend this lovely cottage.
Living/ dining area and kitchen all open plan which makes a great space for the family to be all together.
Lovely seaside theme running through the cottage, all furniture and fittings new and modern.
Great location, short walk to the beach and a field directly in front of property, ideal for children to play.
The downstairs loo and ensuite an added bonus.
We'll be back!!
