  • "Lovely cottage - well equipped kitchen."

    Would have been good to have logs and kindling when booking in winter. Lovely and warm though when we arrived. Clearer instructions or already connected to Netflix would be handy Overall a really lovely cottage

  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage in Budle Bay which is located besides the beach in an excellent spot for bird watchers or just people wanting to get away from it all."

    Everything from location to cleanliness was first class. Definitely recommend.

  • "We had a great stay at Coral, there was a slight problem on arrival but all was soon sorted by the team."

    The property is very comfortable and well fitted. A couple of notes though, information in the property is out of date, bin days listed are for 2022 and as a consequence the grey bin appears not to have been emptied for weeks, and in fact previous guests have dumped bags and bottles in the middle store, this will encourage vermin. Also washing machine instructions are for a previous washing machine, not much good at all. Moan over, thankyou for a lovely stay.

  • "Although the house inside was very clean the outside was very bad."

    Before going on holiday I noted that a previous person had commented on this and I therefore thought it would have been addressed. The immediate patio outside the kitchen was a disgrace. My husband swept some of the dirt and old leaves away to stop it coming into the house when we oped the door. Also the front door and surrounds needed attention and was most unwelcoming. At the price we were paying this should have been addressed.

  • "Nice well situated property."

    Very well stocked kitchen. Welcome packs very useful. View and beach accessibility not quite as good as expected but didn't detract away from the beautiful surroundings-great for early morning walks. Some small issues: Bed a little hard, power showers great but not easy to get to required temp. Exercise caution as the 'hot' is almost scalding and comes unexpectedly. Windows in kitchen difficult to close and in need of maintenance. Had to clean the windows outside due to accumulated dust and cobwebs. Despite the above the cottage is comfortable and worth it. Lovely place and surroundings.

    Sea views from bedroom and top garden. Walking distance to Budle Bay, lovely beach. The only little complaint would be the garden, just needs a little attention otherwise a perfect stay. Would definitely recommend.

  • "We greatly enjoyed our stay our Coral Cottage."

    In particular, we liked that the kitchen was well equipped for self catering and the garden was lovely on the one day we had sun in the evening! We wish we could have used it more. We have a baby so the highchair was much appreciated, but the straps on it were filthy and badly need cleaning. The property in general seemed clean but we did notice a musty smell in the bedroom. However, these are minor issues that did not detract from our stay overall.

  • "We love Coral Cottage."

    This was our second stay. So quiet and so near the sea and great to have a charger for our car. Good that outside had been tidied up since last year so it was easier to get bins out without battling with climbing plants! And great to have toilet rolls provided this year too! My only little grumble was that the patio furniture was really grubby and I had to clean it before use, especially the glass topped table.

  • "The house was adequate for our needs."

    However it was disappointing in some aspects in that I feel the advertising was misleading. We chose this house because it looked bright and airy with views to the sea. In reality it was not. I then looked at the advertising again and realised that every light was on in the property when in reality the house is very dark with no outlook whatsoever just looking into a courtyard with cars parked at the windows. I appreciate this is the layout of the house but it should really have been pointed out - we would not have booked this. One thing that should have been sorted was the length of the grass in the upper garden. Clearing after the dog is far easier when the grass is maintained.

    Thank you for your feedback – it is really helpful to us when our guests let us know how your time away has been. We’re sorry to hear that you felt the pictures were misleading. It is a standard practice for website images to have all the lights on so that it highlights features of rooms etc. There is an image of the sea taken from the garden area which offers the perspective of where the sea is in proximity to the cottage. We totally appreciate the garden being slightly longer than normal – there have been so many wet days this spring and it has been tricky to get this cut, however we take on board your feedback and apologise for it not having been cut.

    We all (including the dog) loved our week at Coral cottage and exploring surrounding area and beaches. As mentioned in previous reviews they are a few outstanding maintance jobs but these did not impact our holiday at all.

    The seating area caught the afternoon/evening sun making it a very pleasent place to sit for tea or drinks.

  • "A lovely cottage with patio area and smallish grassed area up a few steps."

    The cottage was very comfortable and clean and nicely furnished. The kitchen is well stocked with crockery & cookware and appliances, even a small coffee machine (the type with pods). We did find the two clumsy and awkwardly placed swinging arm lamps either side of the sofa a nuisance and apart from a few general maintenance issues we were not disappointed and enjoyed our stay. The beach is just across the road and down a short footpath and Bamburgh and Seahouses were just a short drive away. In the spirit of constructive feedback the maintenance issues as follows: - The grass needed cutting and garden furniture needed a bit of tlc, inside, cobwebs from the beams, ivy obscuring one of the skylights (knocks against the glass when windy), missing door threshold into the lounge and damaged door threshold in the hall nearest the shower room, rust stains from a slight or previous leak on one of the hallway skylights, also we had to scrape back the stone clippings in the bin store to get the bin in and out and to be able to close the door properly and as you expect guests to put the bins out for collection it might be an idea to update your information booklet. (We looked up the correct day on the council website). Lastly, as mentioned in other reviews, we were disappointed there were no logs for the wood burner, it appears to be BYO! These were minor issues, the cottage and location are great!

  • "The property was just right for the three of us."

    The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the lounge had a cosy feel, especially when the log burner was on. No logs or kindling provided though! The property is ideally located for coastal walks and only a couple of miles from Bamburgh. The only observations were that the property was not as clean as we would have expected, and whilst we accept that the property allows pets, there was a distinct animal smell. Despite these points it did not spoil an otherwise very enjoyable stay.

  • "The cottage is lovely - very spacious for 3 people and very well equipped."

    We had a fabulous week of cold but bright frosty weather and loved the beach walks and pub lunches. It was a real bonus for us that it has an electric car charging point which made our first adventure away from home in our EV easy and stress free. Our only issue was that there was no fuel for the wood burning stove. We would have gone better prepared if we had known we needed to take our own wood. Maintenance issues- back door outside handle needs securing, adjuster knob on stove needs grub screw tightening, kitchen clock needs new battery, and the information file needs updating (eg tide timetables and refuse collections out of date)

  • "The property was lovely and well maintained and presented."

    Just a couple of points : first of all, the cottage is not that easy to find and directions are not clear, it would be far more welcoming to leave a light on in the cottage for arrival and the heating, even if turned on low. Also a small welcoming gesture would not go amiss. Rarely have we stayed in a cottage where there was not something left out to welcome guests ( a bottle of wine, cake, or something in the fridge with a little note etc)..... it is a nice gesture and always appreciated. Another issue was with the smoke alarm which went off every time we lit the wood burner ( and enough wood for a couple of uses at least should be provided) - that was a real nuisance. The windows need some attention as not easy to open.... and shut. All in all though, we had a lovely time. Northumberland is stunning and evocative, and Coral Cottage was a comfortable place to stay

About the location


  • Seahouses 3 miles
  • Alnwick 12 miles

The village’s sweeping sandy beaches and dramatic fortress - Bamburgh Castle - make Bamburgh one of Northumberland’s major visitor attractions. The castle can be seen for miles and dominates this part of the county’s coastline. Today it remains home to the family of the great Victorian industrialist Lord Armstrong, and is open to the public on a daily basis. Although overshadowed by the great castle, Bamburgh village is picturesque with neat grey stone cottages facing a manicured village green. There are excellent pubs, hotels with restaurants and a small selection of village shops. There are golf courses in Bamburgh and nearby Seahouses, and within easy reach are more wide sandy beaches, lovely fishing villages, stunning castles and coastal islands to explore along the dramatic Heritage Coast. There are numerous other attractions also a short drive away, including the famous Alnwick Castle and Gardens and the historic walled border town, Berwick-upon-Tweed. A superb base for exploring Northumberland.
