Booked this for a family birthday for 9 people and found it ideal. Fantastic view from the lounge and kitchen. Clean and very well equipped. Most importantly, because it was cold February, the house was warm from morning until night. Bedrooms downstairs a bit quirky but, as we spent most of our time upstairs in the lounge, kitchen and conservatory, this did not matter. The young ones enjoyed the walk along the cliffs and beach from Beadnell to Seahouses, where we met them for fish and chips, and then the walk back again along the deserted beach. Very good value for money and would return. Good communications with owner. Thank you.
Our family had a wonderful holiday at The Moorings.
Jayne was in regular contact to ensure everything ran smoothly. We were not disappointed with the house as it was just as advertised. Amazing views from lounge and really well equipped kitchen/diner. Nicely furnished, clean and we'll presented accommodation. Very comfortable and cosy too. Lots of space and the conservatory proved a real bonus as a play space for my toddler grandson who was delighted to find the boxes of toys ! Ideal for dogs too as coastal path and beautiful beach are on the doorstep so great dog walking. The village shop was a great bonus and we'll worth a visit as they sell a bit of everything including delicious fresh bread, fruit,vegetables and meat. Staff are lovely too.
The Moorings is a great base for a family holiday exploring beautiful.
Wow, what a fantastic holiday and a lovely place to stay, has everything you can think of,(apart from scissors) lol. No joking apart I would recommend this place to anyone it was amazing such a cosy holiday home with a view to die for and location was just fantastic would definitely book again, thank you for an amazing stay see you soon hopefully
This house is in Beadnell Bay and has a fantastic location with views over the sea and ideal for walking and days out.
We had booked the house for a family get together for a party of 10 plus a small dog. Great size house, loads of room, very clean and the log fire went down a treat.
The dealings with the owner, Jayne were very easy.
What a wonderful place everything we could have wished for and more, great base for exploring, very close to a beautiful beach. Amazing views from the armchair, would recommend to anyone. Also thank you very much Jayne for the nice welcome gifts very much appreciated.
We stayed at The Moorings for a last minute weekend away with family. The house is in the most wonderful location, the local beach is only a few minutes walk away and is simply stunning. The house itself has very good points but some very disappointing points too. My main issue is the fact that this house is marketed as 'welcoming dogs', this is in my opinion false advertising and I would suggest that the owners should be ashamed of themselves for marketing it this way. It states in the house info file (kept in the kitchen) that dogs are not welcome in the main living areas, the lounge, kitchen, conservatory and balcony are upstairs in order to maximise on the spectacular view. Dogs are not allowed in any of these rooms as the owner feels they could damage the red wood floor, therefore dogs are only allowed in the downstairs entrance hall, downstairs small games room and the tiny utility room. As the family congregate in the main communal rooms the dogs must be downstairs. We booked a holiday with our dog but he was left on his own downstairs while the family enjoyed ourselves upstairs in the evening. If the owners feel that dogs will damage the flooring in the main communal living areas then this should be stated on the advertisement....or (more sensibly) don't allow dogs to stay at this house at all.
Another issue we had is that there were 9 of us (house sleeps 11 max) yet only 5 seats in the main lounge, leaving 4 people sat on hard dining room chairs or the floor. If your house sleeps 11. surely you can seat 11 too!
So, moaning done now, this is a nice house in a wonderful location. The kitchen is well equipped, there is plenty of parking, the owner had kindly left us a bottle of wine and some chocolates which were gratefully received. Had it not been for the issue with dogs not being allowed in the main living areas I would have given this 3 stars. My advice to anyone who has booked this house on the basis of it being dog friendly is to cancel and demand a full refund, if you are booking as a family without a dog I'm sure you'll love it.
