  • "Had 8 adults 1 child 2 dogs and never felt on top of one another all rooms spacious."

    only one shower- small BUT everyone used daily and always hot and powerful. Kitchen very well appointed didn't want for anything. Perfect position for all amenities and beach. plenty of parking we had 5 cars in our party. 2 permits but plenty of off street parking.

    Thank you for the feedback - we are so happy you had a comfortable stay with everything that you needed. Sounds like you enjoyed the house as much as we do which is lovely!!! Property Owner

  • "A really well-equipped and spacious house superbly located in this charming coastal village."

    However, for a house this size, a single (and small) shower is not adequate, Moreover, it leaked through the floor below and was blocked when we arrived. Would benefit from hand soap in bathrooms (mentioned in previous reviews), an explanation on how the central heating works (I had to google the control unit), clearer bin putting out instructions (alleyway?) and a glass recycling point in Alnmouth. A huge plus was the responsiveness of the NCCC/Sykes staff who quickly turned up to provide the high chair that we'd requested (but wasn't there on arrival) and sort out the shower.

    Thank you for your feedback and firstly we are really glad to see that you had a good holiday. We are in absolute agreement with you on the shower and are looking at how we remodel the bathrooms. Fairhaven is popular and often heavily booked so getting a time slot to get a remodel done on the bathrooms is challenging and something that we are planning for next year. In the last two weeks we have experienced this particular issue with the shower and the property has been closed to complete this essential maintenance – we’re very sorry you experienced this problem while you were visiting and very glad NCCC was able to assist you. Thank you for the hand soap suggestion - we have now arranged for that to be provided in both bathrooms and the kitchen. During the summer we had amended the instructions for the bins but clearly this isn’t working so I have asked NCCC to revisit this and ensure it is clearer. The NCCC team have also since added the heating instructions to the information pack. Glass disposal is something we are reliant on the council for however we are also investigating how to provide more convenience for guests. We are so grateful for your constructive feedback so that we can take action, thus assisting future visitors. Property Owner

  • "Lovely property excellent location close to the beach ."

    Very comfortable bedrooms .Extremely well equipped kitchen Lots of stairs in the property worth bearing in mind if you’re not very mobile . Two parking permits provided got on street parking which was never an issue even though we were there over half term holidays . We had a couple of minor plumbing issues which were very promptly sorted out . Would recommend for a familiar holiday

    Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback, we’re so pleased you had a good time and found the bedrooms comfortable – that makes all the difference when you want to have a good rest away from home. NCCC have sorted out the plumbing issues and we thank you for your patience on those. We are really grateful that you raised it with them so that they could be rectified. Property Owner

  • "The property was very warm and comfortable."

    Northumbria Coast and Cottages staff were extremely pleasant and helpful, turning up promptly when some attention was required in the house. We were disappointed that the owners appeared to be unable to be contacted to sanction a change of date, even though one of our party was taken seriously ill before our holiday began. We would certainly book with Northumbria Coast and Cottages again, though - they did everything possible to help us and facilitate our stay. Thank you.

  • "Generally this property suited us very well."

    On 3 storeys with several stairs, might not suit those with mobility issues. Very well equipped for the number of people staying (we were 6). Very warm and comfortable. On street parking not a problem with permits supplied. Providing hand wash and/or soap would be expected in a property of this standard. Alnmouth is a lovely small town located beside a golf course and beautiful sandy beach with several excellent restaurants and shops.

    We are so happy you enjoyed the house and the village. Thank you for your great suggestion - we will now be providing hand soap in both bathrooms and the kitchen. Property Owner

  • "Amazing property."

    Beautifully furnished, fully equipped with everything you need, very clean, short walk to the beach and Alnmouth high street. Lovely touches like some family games, Netflix signed in, travel cots, lots and lots of towels, handy kitchen essentials kit, easy to collect the key on arrival, parking passes immediately available…. All great! We will be back!

  • "In general the accommodation was fine."

    However, two bathrooms next to each on a mezzanine floor between ground and first was insufficient and inconvenient. Only one very small shower cubicle for 9 people was a struggle. It would be a simple task to add another shower/bathroom on the top floor. We also struggled for cupboard space in the kitchen for the food we had brought. Every cupboard was full of equipment.

  • "The only problem was parking, There was no car pass for restricted area outside house."

    There was also no marked refuge bins for the house outside and it was a lottery if we got he correct one? Having to drive 5 miles to get rid of glass bottles was not good there should be a place for this at the house as remember people are on holiday and this should be addressed by the host.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback. We’re glad to see that you had a good time, but we are really sorry to see that you experienced a couple of issues. Unfortunately we did have problem with some parking permits going missing and whilst they are now available at Fairhaven we are sorry that you weren’t able to park outside the property during your stay. Based on your feedback we have now highlighted which bins belongs to Fairhaven to avoid future confusion and we are working on a glass recycling option. Property Owner
