  • "What a lovely place to stay!"

    The Byre is beautifully furnished, had everything you could need and was full of quirky touches. Chris and Elizabeth are excellent hosts and couldn’t have been more helpful, the welcome hamper was great! Thank you! The walk into the village or to the beach took about 10 minutes. I’m quite sure that we’ll be back!

    Thank you so much for your kind comments, we are so pleased you liked the Byre and we would love to see you again. We try to include local produce in our welcome pack and we are glad you enjoyed it. The home made chocolates are hard to resist! Thank you again. Property Owner

  • "We were welcomed at The Byre by the owners."

    Cake/milk/bread/butter/wine had all been provided for us. Initially the property was a bit chilly but this was soon rectified and the lovely log burner with unlimited wood available was a valuable addition to a windy, wet week. The Byre was spotlessly clean with a comfortable double bed, loads of hot water and ample parking. There are nice walks to Alnmouth and Amble and Cragside and Alnwick are easily driveable.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are so pleased you enjoyed the welcome pack. A fire does make a difference. We are glad you had a lovely time. Property Owner

  • "Just fantastic!"

    A real home from home, we felt very comfortable from the first minute. The property was spotless, well equipped, with a beautiful outside patio to enjoy a glass of wine on. It’s only 10 mins walk to a very quiet sandy beach and into Warkworth centre with numerous coffee shops, restaurants and pubs. You’ve then got a beautiful coastline to explore. All in all a very chilled week, Chris and Elizabeth were perfect hosts, we fully intend to visit again.

    Thank you for your kind remarks we are delighted that you had a lovely stay and we look forward to seeing you again. Regards Elizabeth Property Owner
