  • "The property was lovely."

    It’s quirky with lots of interesting features. It was so nice to lie in bed and look out at the amazing view! It is very well equipped lots of cooking equipment etc. The location is great too. Only two very minor things that are needed. 1. dustpan and brush or hoover! We have two mucky dogs. 2. The wood provided was very wet and there was no kindling so it was impossible to light the fire when we arrived. We found a local farmers store and purchased what we needed! I am happy for you to publish feedback but only the first paragraph

  • "We booked a week's break at The Huffy House for January 20th 2024."

    We noticed on weather reports that the week of January 13th was going to be really bad and as my husband is a builder and doesn't get paid if he doesn't work we looked at Sykes website and saw that The Huffy House was available on the 13th January so rang Sykes and asked if we could bring the holiday forward a week. I kept ringing Sykes to see if they had heard back from the owner but the answer was no every time so later in the day I rang Sykes again and said if we can't go on the 13th can we move our booking till later in the year. To cut a long story short, we received a message from Sykes the next morning to say that the owner of The Huffy House says we cannot move our week to the 13th January and we also couldn't move it forward to later in the year. Very disappointed with this response. We won't use Sykes again nor Northumbria Cottages which is a shame as it's a lovely cottage.

  • "On a negative point, in the listing it states “fuel and power included in rent” also note “starter fuel provided” as shown in the photograph on Sykes the basket is full."

    Upon arrival we questioned this and was told “all the wood was wet”. We would have thought at the very least they would have done what we had to do and pop into town to get a bag of logs. On a positive note, of which there were many, cosy, quiet and with ample white goods. The area has lots of places to visit including many castles, holy island and you must visit Craster for the locally caught kippers.

  • "A lovely quirky place to stay."

    Fabulous setting, great for accessing the Northumberland coastline and a short walk into Alnmouth. We were able to make use of the outdoor picnic bench to watch the trains passing over the viaduct, even though close to the station it is very quiet. Dark clear skies also allowed star gazing. Lovely views from longue/bedroom and kitchen, Property had everything you need, a small freezer would be a good addition as would a few extra glasses. Log burner used nightly made for a toasty warm evenings.

  • "We had a wonderful time at the Huffy House."

    It exceeded our expectations. The view is amazing and is a real treat to wake up to in the mornings. There is everything you need, it is very comfortable and we loved it. You don’t need to go up the few steep steps - there’s another way round (ideal for our elderly dog). It’s only minutes from Alnmouth and the beach, and is well placed to explore the beautiful Northumberland coast and neighbouring castles. Everyone we met was very friendly -and it’s a very dog friendly area too! A great place to stay.

  • "Had a lovely holiday at The Huffy House."

    It was a great base for getting to other areas of Northumberland. Property has fabulous views and privacy. We stayed in February, so the weather was cold, but once shutters closed and fire and electric heating on, we were very cosy. Sofa was a chesterfield, so I was not very comfortable but was in keeping with the style of the cottage. We had our dog with us, and he loved it. Was a very stress free holiday, just what we needed. The owner's live opposite and gave us advice on walks in area as well as offering help with any problems but we didn't have any so no issues there. Thank you

  • "It was pretty much perfect for us and what we were looking for."

    Sitting in the stillness and quiet was sublime Loved the accommodation someone with a good eye and empathy for the building equipped it. Pls do not print this bit below My only comments were Being a short arse I couldn’t open the window in the wet room to let steam out from the shower The heated towel rail , couldn’t work out how it went on /off. My dog ran into the fields on day one. No animals were in the fields, although farm animals don’t interest her at all I was eventually able to retrieve her She’s young and just got over stimulated. If that was a potential problem maybe there needs to be more of a barrier ?

  • "We had a lovely short break at The Huffy House, it was quiet, comfortable and ideal for a 14 year old Spaniel who still manages two good walks a day, but prefers his humans close by."

    All on one level, and so close to good walks and the wonderful Alnmouth beach. The views over the fields are wonderful. Would definitely recommend! We had a small hiccup with our booking but Tom and Jill sorted it out whilst we diverted to Warkworth for our dinner. Somehow our booking details hadn't filtered through properly and they weren't expecting us. It wasn't a problem to us and we found an excellent pub, The Mason's Arms in Warkworth. Also very doggy friendly. Warkworth also has a super river walk for humans and doggies, plus the most marvellous tea room called Bertram's, they welcome dogs here too.
