  • "Brilliant location and fantastic cottage, bedrooms were spotlessly clean and v comfortable."

    The kitchen was bijou and took some conjuring to wash up. A very small point - a draining board with a drip tray would be handy otherwise it after gets everywhere! Other than that would definitely recommend

  • "We had a lovely week staying in Sandpiper."

    Just a few glitches. Parking … more detailed info on where to park or a parking permit would have been useful. I’d been to Alnmouth before so had a fair idea where to park. If one was a stranger it would have been more difficult at the end of a long drive. The cottage was clean and fresh, all but the oven which would benefit from some attention. Beds were super comfy. Although the cleaner was late coming we were reimbursed for needing o go out for a meal and there was a nice complimentary bag of goodies. Contact with the agency was easy and accessible. .

  • "Lovely clean and comfortable accommodation."

    Nice comfortable bed. Lovely finishing touches and art work in every room. Within easy walking distance of shops, pubs and of course the beach. Parking was a little tricky but not a huge problem and being down a lane it was very quiet. Would definitely consider going back there, especially back to Alnmouth.

  • "Beautiful, traditional stone terrace house in a lovely traditional Northumbrian Coastal village."

    It is much larger than expected, and it's over three floors. Was very cosy in the winter. There's great pubs and a deli in the village too, and its well connected by public transport, which is great for exploring the region.
