  • "Lovely cottage in a very nice position in Alnmouth."

    Very comfortable and cosy and the property met the description. Very clean on arrival. Just a few areas that I would suggest for fairness and improvement really. I think it has been mentioned before in previous feedback, but three logs and sticks described as a starter fire pack is not on really especially for winter lets. Only one loo role on arrival for a cottage that sleeps 5 No proper kitchen cloths and a very limited supply of washing up liquid. I am sorry but the cottage is not cheap and you would expect more basic essentials being provided. I would suggest new customers to be aware of this prior to arrival and come prepared. Also for those people not familiar with the Nest Heating system it was tricky to figure out. There was no instructions for this in the cottage information. I think they must have gone missing as the information stated that they should be included. Therefore downstairs cold but small bedroom roasting.

  • "Grebe Cottage itself was excellent, clean and extremely cosy."

    The provision of some wood would have been nice for the first night as we arrived after shop hours. There were some sticks and 3 logs but not enough for the night. Some of the shopkeepers need a course in customer relations, one couldn’t manage a good morning, whilst another questioned why we asking for mince pies on the 29th of November as it was not Christmas yet. Whilst some locals were pleasant it was evident that others had no time or patience for visitors.
