  • "We had a lovely stay at the Haven."

    Martin and Sally had thought of everything to make our stay perfect. We had everything we needed and things we didn't know we needed until we used them (dog cleaner was great) for a comfortable stay. Everything was clean, beds were comfortable (I asked my daughter and her feedback was she liked how it looked and the bed was comfy). Location wise it was great for exploring the coast and the borders. It is on a main cycle route with quiet country roads. We boogie boarded at Cheswick beach, found fossils, gem stones and saw dolphins at Cocklawburn beach. Walked across the causeway to Holy Island. Went to Cragside Castle - adventure playpark, maze and interesting house and grounds. As well as local castles and stream trains. There is so much to do and explore we barely scratched the surface. Thank you for having us at your wonderful cottage.

    Kirsten and family, we are so pleased you had a wonderful, action packed holiday in this beautiful part of Northumberland. Thank you for taking the time to review The Haven and your positive comments. Over the years we have strived to ensure guests have comfortable, well equiped accomodation, a home from home. As newcomers to Sykes Holiday cottages we aim to continue that approach. We hope to welcome you again in the future to experience more of this outstanding area. Thank you. Sally and Martin.
