“Wow, Wow, Wow Everything is just Prefect!”
Reviewed 18 February 2018 for a stay in October 2017

For some reason I thought I had written a review for this property over a year ago however after looking back through, it either failed to load or I must have forgotten with baby brain.

What can I say apart from I wanted to live here. The house was just perfect every touch, every clean corner all the clean bed linen, pillows, bathroom immaculate. I do not think anyone could fault anything in this place, even down to having a sink bowl under the cupboard stairs just in case you preferred it- as a southerner does like myself!

The storage was fab, washing machine fantastic and the toys and games available for both children and adults was the best to come home too.

The welcome pack was my favourite I think every holiday cottage/home should provide one it's nice to know in advance places to eat things too do times and openings etc was a fantastic touch.

I would in no doubt recommend this to anyone visiting the area, we stayed on a trip to see my partner who's currently based near Hexham with work and we wanted to look round the area/ Newcastle surround for houses for myself and little one to make the big move up North to be with him. If this place ever decided to do a long term let we would most definitely take it up as it just felt like a home from home. Being so close to sea just felt like home aswell.

Thank you very much Steph for greeting both my partner, my little boy and myself on arrival and for helping us with any questions.

“Lovely stay by the sea...”
Reviewed 29 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We stayed at The Mules in November and were not disappointed. The house is immaculate, the owner communicates well, came to visit us and left us a lovely welcome gift. We used the house as base traveling out for the day to see Souter Lighthouse, Durham, Alnwick, Bamburgh and Beamish. All these places are less than an hours drive from The Mules.
The house is located right by the sea so we went for a walk up the prom on our first morning to blow the cobwebs away.
The house has 3 lovely bedrooms and a large living/dining room. Everything you need is there for you. Beautifully decorated with lovely comfortable bed my family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend to others.

“Our Newbiggin home from home.”
Reviewed 2 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Excellent location, an extremely comfortable cottage with warm and friendly owners. Nothing is too much trouble and the communications we experienced prior to taking up the rental were first class.
We have stayed there three years now and will be travelling back there next year.

i feel very fortunate to have found the listing for The Mules. the location was excellent, easy to get around to see the sights in and around Northumberland such as Durham, Alnick Castle, The Holy Island of Lindisfarne, etc.

the cottage itself was wonderful. a two-story townhouse with private, off-street parking and entrances front and rear. Steph provided a thoughtful welcome basket and it was nicely appointed with a fitting nautical theme. clean and inviting and all we could ask for. good pizza across the street and two very bakeries down the street. just steps away from a wide, curving seaside promenade where you can see the Couples sculpture out in the water. Newbiggin-by-the-Sea is a nice little town. not touristy, but a fine tourist base, and Steph was a great hostess. recommend.

“A beautiful house near the beach”
Reviewed 21 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017
1
person found this review helpful

We had a great stay at the Mules with our three children. The house is very beautiful, comfortable and very clean and tidy. The kitchen is well equipped and we were surprised to find so many books, toys and movies. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, she left us some nice things too. The beach is very close to the house and we have made nice walks along the beach and we have taken beautiful pictures. It is very photogenic with those rocks in the water. In short, we enjoyed it very much.
