Lovely, clean house
We had a great stay in this warm, clean house. It had everything we needed and was a stones throw to the beach. The village had all we needed in it and it was brilliantly located for visiting the area.

Fantastic weekend
What a lovely welcome from Steph the owner. The house was lovely and spotlessly clean. There is everything you need and the shops cafés and pubs in Newbigging are great. The house is in a good place for the beach and shops and parking is safe and off road. We used the house as a base to travel out and we found it perfect. We will definitely be staying at the Mules again and to be honest I can't wait. Thank you Steph see you soon.

Great weekend! Thank you Steph!
Excellent property. The sea is just around the corner. Great facilities. Great Wifi, a television in every bedroom. Spacious rooms. Lovely lounge/diner. Comfy beds. Easy and friendly communication with Steph. Welcome wine, crisps & biscuits despite only staying for 3 nights, which was not expected and much appreciated. Milk in the fridge on arrival. No garden but there is a shared back yard. Plenty of parking. Loved Newbiggin. We will book again for next year but this time for a longer stay.

Excellent property
We booked last minute for a short break. Excellent property, well appointed and in a great position. We had not booked for a beach holiday but a base to tour around. The beach is only a couple of hundred yards away and a childrens paradise. We loved it as the town, beach and promenade has not become too commercialised. A great choice for a family holiday.

Lovely cottage that was immaculately clean
Lovely, immaculate cottage a stone throw away from the beach. Lovely quiet village with a few nice shops, cafes and restaurants. Well located for exploring Northumberland and not far from Newcastle. Would definitely recommend.

Would highly recommend
We've just had a cracking week at The Mules. The accommodation has everything you need & is spotlessly clean. It was a pleasure to stay here & is child friendly. The living room & dining area is lovely & spacious which is just what you need with children. Steph the owner is lovely & kindly provided a welcome pack which was greatly appreciated. The house is in an ideal position just a minute from the beach & in easy access to local amenities. It's in an ideal base to use to travel to other main tourist areas ie Alnwick, Seahouses, Holy Island etc. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here.
