“A little gem”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Lovely cottage, well equipped and in a lovely position for the A1 making it easy to get out and about. Lots of lovely places to visit some with free parking, a rarity nowadays, beautiful beaches, good eating places, and a pleasure to drive around on the many somewhat empty roads, and if like us you did not want to drive every day there was an excellent bus service right on your doorstep. The cottage benefited from the Running Fox bakery across the road but we were thankful we only had a week otherwise we would have been a stone heavier than when we arrived, an amazing shop. All in all a lovely cottage in a lovely village surrounded by lovely countryside.

“Best cottage ever”
Reviewed 25 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Kids booked this cottage as a Christmas present and their research certainly paid off. Everything was perfect from the location to the cottage itself. The thought that had gone into it by the owners was obvious including the lovely welcome hamper and an excellent guide handbook. Just off the A1 and minutes away by car to fantastic beaches. Our poodle loved it too with lovely walks just outside. Will definitely be returning.

“excellent holiday, thank you”
Reviewed 26 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We had a excellent holiday in your cottage and will be recomending to friends and family. We were impressed with your communication and the information you provided which helped to make our holiday easier to plan. Brilliant location for walks especially the local ones from the cottage and those further afield, the beach, NT & EH properties and thanks to your suggestion to go to the Sunday market in Amble can also recommend illy's ice cream parlour near the Marina especially the elderflower and ginger. Good food at the Northumberland Arms and cakes from the Running Fox. The towels for the dog were a good idea. Will definately put you on our list to revisit again sometime. All we can say is thank you.
