Nice cottage. Quite basic but very clean and well equipped. View from front windows outstanding.

Lovely comfortable cottage in a fabulous location with parking and good utility area for clearing up after sandy and wet walks. Sunrises from the bedroom and living room are stunning. The situation of this cottage is great, walking distance to a great pub, cafe and restaurant, not to mention the smoke house! Buses short walking distance.

Reviewed by Margaret 24th February 2020

It was a clean, comfortable cottage which had the added bonus of a utility room to dry off on the not so dry days. The Jolly Fisherman pub at the top of the hill was lovely, allowed our furry friends and the food was excellent. There is also a dog friendly cafe in the village too. All in all a lovely relaxing week.

Yes, the cottage was a bit dated, but it was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The fact that it wasnt pristine took away the stress of having 2 children and 2 dogs with us. The location was fantastic, perfect for walking or just watching the sea. We had a lovely few days. In the midst of Februarys storms it was great to hunker down on Read morethe sofa with a glass of wine and a dvd and watch the weather crash around us. Hide

Reviewed by Rachel 8th February 2020

Pros: Location great, cottage very clean, nice and warm, great views from the front bedroom. Cons: Kitchen cupboards very shabby and not enough small plates/large mugs. Insulation between the two adjoining cottages is terrible and I could hear my neighbour's barking dog at 3AM very clearly. Wi-fi is also awful. Fibre broadband is available in the vRead moreillage, yet download speeds were a pathetic 1.6 mbps. Not good enough to reliably stream any content. Good luck with that if you have kids. Hide

This is a 3 star cottage - well located, functional, clean and warm but no frills and lacking some ambience. Extremely quick response to a small issue. Would certainly consider again.

Reviewed by Don 15th January 2020

We arrived on a cold January afternoon and the only heating on the ground floor was an electric stove with wood burner affect. The bulb lasted two hours so we did not even have the glow to comfort us. We had a phone contact number for problems but could not get a phone signal.

Reviewed by Eileen 11th November 2019

This cottage is in a wonderful position but it is very basic and the pictures do not reflect what it looks like. The camera has taken highly lightened shots which gives an impression of bright smart interior which it is not. A great deal of tlc is needed to make it value for money. We will rent elsewhere next time.

Cosy cottage with great sea and harbour views and great location for local walks and Northumberland coastline.

Beautiful location. Morning coffee on the harbour wall. Perfect.

Reviewed by John 14th September 2019

Excellent location, lovely cottage, the only complaint I could argue with that it was a little TLC is needed,ie cupboards the Formica had peeled off, the blinds in the bedroom,at the bottom the beading had come off. Otherwise everything was fine. Thanks John Middleton.

Reviewed by Angela 8th June 2019

A lovely cosy cottage overlooking the harbour. We found the heated towel rail in the downstairs toilet a godsend as the weather wasn't very kind. Having a utility room on entering the backdoor was very convenient when dealing with a soggy dog! It suited us perfectly (2 adults and a spaniel). It's on the coastal footpath and it doesn't take long to Read moredrive to some wonderful, dog-friendly beaches. Hide

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
