We honestly could not have asked for a more perfect place. Location was ideal and perfect for exploring our favourite beach in Northumberland. Nothing quite takes your breath away as the view which hits you as you walk over the golf course and onto the beach..... I almost don't want to tell people about it so it can remain "my beach".....

The house was clean, tidy and had everything in that you would possibly need. The linen and towels which were provided and the games, DVD’s and books were a lovely touch too turning it from the normal rental to something a little bit special. The bed was lovely and comfy and the bathroom immaculate with a lovely shower. The kitchen had really good facilities and pots and pans etc were all in a good condition, so much so that we cooked both nights of our stay rather than venture out. Something I was glad of after a long walk! :O)

I’ve already recommended it to many of my family and friends and will certainly be returning as it made a most lovely surprise birthday weekend for my partner.

“Lovely cottage in a wonderful wee village”

My girlfriend and I decided to visit Northumberland for a spot of sight seeing and to visit my uncle and Snowdrop cottage met our needs perfectly.
My first impressions of the cottage was it was smaller than expected, however it turned out to be a case of quality over quantity. The cottage is very comfortable to stay in, the kitchen has practically everything you'll need to prepare meals. We had a great sleep thanks to the lovely big bed and the peace and quiet. The free wifi was a very welcome facility which we found extremely useful.
The cottage is perfect for a couple wanting a relaxing break or a young family looking to explore as Northumberland has a lot to offer. There are many beautiful beaches along the cost and plenty of things to see and do. On this particular break we visited Alnwick, Berwick, Bamburgh Castle, Seahouses, Amble, Lindisfarne and Newcastle, all of which could be reached in under an hours drive.

A wonderful cottage, spotless and very cosy. Everything you could possibly need to make your holiday complete. The location is fantastic - near the beach and lovely walks in all directions.

“Perfect cottage for a week's walking in Northumberland with your dog”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We’ve just spent a lovely week at Snowdrop. It was our base for a week of walking, castles and pub lunches and was perfect.

It’s not a rambling old farmhouse or anything like it – it’s a comfy, warm cottage, big enough for four and ideal for a week or rest and relaxation. It looks like Snowdrop and the neighbouring cottages are a barn conversion.

It’s well furnished downstairs with plenty of space to eat, cook and relax. There are two comfy sofas and a table for four people to eat around. There’s enough crockery for a week’s holiday and the oven is excellent.

The heaters warm the cottage up quickly and the shower is excellent. Space is used brilliantly upstairs – it might be quite a compact cottage, but use of sliding doors upstairs means that it doesn’t feel cramped. And we loved the open plan downstairs.

It comes with an iPod dock – the first I’ve seen on holiday cottages – and the vacuum cleaner is a top of the range Miele. There’s no washing machine – but who wants to do the washing when you’re on holiday?

The location couldn’t be better – tucked beside the hotel, just off the road. Two mins from the pub and 10 mins from the single greatest beach on earth.

The owner was helpful and communication with him was excellent.

We will definitely be returning.

We decided to take a last minute short break and John the landlord was more than helpful. We found the cottage more than expected, all very new and clean, very near to the lovely coast We all thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone. We didnt want for anything in the cottage.
