Excellent cottage, well equipped and modern, clean and comfortable. The owners provided a warm welcome included some nice little touches to make our stay (and that of our spaniel!) even more enjoyable. Cottage is located perfectly to make the most of the beautiful Northumbrian coastline, surrounding countryside and local amenities.

This cottage met all our needs and expectations. The kitchen was very well equipped with appliances and the supply of condiments, tea and biscuits etc was appreciated. The wifi was very fast and the smart tv channels a bonus. The location was great with parking outside the front door or at the rear.

We had a great time. There were only two of us but the cottage was spacious and well equipped. Lianne was very proactive in contacting us and ensuring everything was OK. The location was excellent with plenty to do within reasonable travelling distance. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage and location.

This is a very cosy cottage in a lovely village 10 mins walk down to the sea. It was very clean, with comfortable beds and good, new utensils and equipment. One bedroom just has a small velux window in the ceiling. It is a bit bigger inside than it looks from the outside, with a separate kitchen, and a dining/sitting room.
