Dolphin Dream is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Loved the walk along the beach at Low Newton and the walk to Dunstanburgh. The wild weather added to the enjoyment. We were very happy with the facilities and the property was very clean. The people I booked with over the phone were extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

An ideal location to visit all local and not so local places of interest. Cottage was 1 min from A1 route to wherever you wished to travel! Amble and Warkworth were very good indeed, but the favourites are still the walk from Craster to Dunstanburgh Castle along the coast, and the beautiful Low Newton, with the Ship Inn and the most wonderful beachRead more with views across Embleton Bay to Dunstanburgh....Northumberland is magical and the people are rather special too! Overall we enjoyed a great week in the cottage which met with everyone's approval! Got a mix of some great Northumberland weather as well -sea fret, sunshine, rain, wind - perfect! Hide
