  • "Really lovely cottage with a great welcome pack - some lovely wine and home-made tealoaf."

    Lesbury is a great village and we enjoyed walking to the coast and running nearby. Local people seemed friendly and the village store was excellent. We appreciated the bedding options (I liked the feather pillow) and the fantastic log-burner. We had a very restful time and would recommend both the location and the cottage.

  • "Our third stay at this excellent property."

    The owners are very helpful and accommodated our additional requests. Pleased that this remains a dog free property. Both neighbouring properties are dog friendly, with dogs present during our stay, which is fine, but not to everyone’s liking. The 2 rating above relates to the letting agents (not the owners!) Disappointed with the lack of response from the Sykes to the emails that I sent prior to our stay and no contact telephone number to speak to someone. Very poor customer service! As a result I had to contact the owners direct who were exceptionally helpful and accommodating.

  • "Oak cottage was fabulous."

    It was clean and comfortable and very well equipped.Lots of thoughtful extras were provided (milk and butter in the fridge, wine, cake ,biscuits etc). The beds were very comfortable and the en suites were ideal as we were two couples, so no bathroom queues in the morning. It is in a lovely quiet location yet it was close to the station and a short drive from the coast and shops pubs and restaurants.We would have no hesitation in recommending the cottage.

  • "Clean, cosy, comfortable with two bedrooms of equal high quality."

    We hardly ever find that. Has everything we could ask for and is superbly equipped except for a small saucepan and a garlic press. We love the welcome basket, teas, coffee etc. etc. Top place.

  • "A lovely holiday experience."

    The cottage is absolutely lovely, it's so well equipped and the owners have provided everything we could have needed along with such thoughtful additional touches. We were lucky enough to have good weather but the cottage would have been a relaxing retreat whatever the weather. We'd love to stay again!

The property

Alnmouth 1.3 miles.

Enjoying a superb location in the tranquil hamlet of Lesbury close to Alnmouth in Northumberland, Oak Cottage offers superbly presented accommodation ideal for a family holiday or a break for two couples travelling together.

Inside, the accommodation is rustic yet stylish with an attractive sitting room inviting guests in, complete with ample seating and a woodburning stove which provides a delightful focal point to the room.

For the chef in the party, they will be over the moon with the attractive and well-equipped kitchen where you can imagine delicious meals being whipped up ready to be served at the elegant dining table.

Adjoining patio doors open from here giving you the opportunity to throw them open on warmer days and bring the outside in or you could step outside to the charming patio area and enjoy time eating and drinking alfresco.

All the fresh air will no doubt have tired everyone out, so when it’s time for bed choose from either of two king-sizes; one comes with its own TV and both have their own en-suite facilities.

In the morning, after a quick dip in the shower or a relaxing soak in the bath, you’ll be ready to get out and about exploring.

The pretty town of Alnmouth is nearby as well as the charming town of Alnwick which is just a short drive away where you will find a stunning castle and gardens or drive a little further to attractions such as Hadrian’s Wall, Howick Hall and Gardens, Dunstanburgh Castle and Northumberland Country Zoo.

Take a boat trip over to the Farne Islands where you might catch sight of an unusual bird or seal.

If you love wildlife, then you’ve come to the right place with RSPB reserves at Annstead Dunes and Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre.

Activities worth having a go at while you’re here include golf at Alnmouth Golf Club, horse-riding at Slate Hall Riding Centre, surfing at Bamburgh Castle Beach and sailing at Beadnell Sailing Club.

For a warm welcome to remember for a long time, book a stay at Oak Cottage.
