“Beautiful holiday house”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned home after a weeks holiday at The Mules. We arranged a slightly earlier arrival time with Karen who met us at the house and showed us round. She also recommended places to visit and eat in the area. A lovely welcome pack. The house was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for a weeks holiday even buckets and spades for the beach! We had a great week and would recommend The Mules to anyone looking for a lovely, comfortable house close to the beach and other visitor attractions in the area.

From the mement we arrived and met Karen at The Mules we knew we would have a great time. The warm welcome, delightfully presented accommodation, high standards of cleanliness and great location combined to create a relaxed and comfortable base for a lovely break. Thank you Karen for all the little touches which we really enjoyed and appreciated. We hope to be back!

“Perfect place near the sea”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Well, I could go on and on, but in brief, this was the best stay ever anywhere for us. We are a family of four and simply loved everything about this rental. Although I want the owner to due very well and get lots of rentals, I also wish that I could just keep it a secret since it is such a nice place in such a tremendously wonderful Northumberland town. Everything you could need was just a short walk away. The sea was about 20 seconds walk out the kitchen door. If we could buy a place in the NE of England, we would want it to look like this one did. Thanks to Karen for all her A+ service and warm welcome. We will never forget it!

“Boutique Hotel Feel”

person found this review helpful

Arrived to be met in person by Karen, personally shown around the property which is very large and comfortable. everything in provided you could possibly want and some you didn't know you needed; a bottle of red, chocolates, biscuits and snacks in a welcome basket.

spotlessly clean throughout, beautiful white bed linen and towels, beds very comfortable, neighbourhood quiet and very close to shops and cafes. a minutes walk to the beach.

wonderful location to tour northumberland and tyneside, hope to be back and would higly recommend both Karen and her property.

A basket of goodies, a welcoming smile heralded the beginning of our stay. The Mules is a lovely cottage, spotlessly clean and well located - shops, pubs, golf course, restaurants and seaside prominard,all within easy walking distance. I would strongly recommend the Mules as a wonderful base for exploring the north east, we will be back!
