A great location, easy access to the beaches and hiking trails. The welcome pack had a gift for our dog which was a lovely touch. The cottage is a bit tired and there was an issue with the bathroom, which smelled of damp and mould. The local Co-op and dog friendly cafe were with a 5 minute walk. Had to leave early due to lockdown as there was no gaRead morerden for our dog to play in. Hide

We had a fabulous week thankyou. Great location, just a 20 minute walk to our favourite beach, near Alnwick and Alnmouth, and a Co-op round the corner. A cosy cottage, very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. We hope to return!

Everything we needed re equipment was there. The extras left for us was a lovely touch. Comfy beds, good shower, nice small enclosed garden for sitting in, I would drive to Boulmer, park in free car park and walk right for lovely beach walk rather than Longhoughton beach through farmers land/gate/honesty box for parking

Small but Extremely cosy cottage, lovely and warm, well equipped, within walking distance to a beautiful beach. Lovely walk to the pub at Boulmer. Coop just over the road which sells everything you need. Easy access to Alnwick, Alnmouth, Amble and Craster. On a bus route. We have booked for next year

Compact but very comfortable and peaceful little cottage. Charming courtyard to enjoy the sunshine. We enjoyed a nice walk to the Silver Sands beach - about 25 minutes away - on a couple of evenings.

The cottage is very compact and is adequate for a couple as the bathroom is quite small. It was very clean and tidy. It is down a narrow drive which is quite tight to access from the main road.

We were delighted with the cottage having everything we needed. Although near to other properties we weren't overlooked & there is small, secluded patio. Longhoughton is only a short distance to most of the places we wished to visit. Overall, a lovely holiday.

The cottage is well maintained overall with some of the basics for a comfortable holiday (but which are often overlooked) being of great quality: a top quality mattress in one room and beautiful cotton bed linen and soft pillows all made for a great night's sleep after a good day in the outdoors. The kitchen is generally well equipped with good cooRead moreking knives and modern quality appliances. The patio garden was tranquil and full of bird song.
