  • "The most well equipped place we’ve ever stayed in - So well thought through."

    Ann had left us scones and jam, milk and coffee for our arrival and bread, butter and marmalade for our breakfast next morning. She had even provided towel, bowls and toys for the dogs! Huge garden totally dog safe with lovely views and a quiet location near a lovely river. We had 3 spacious bedrooms, tastefully decorated lounge with comfortable sofas and a window seat, a large fully equipped kitchen diner, 2 porches and a parking space. A real home from home for humans and dogs. The location was perfect for visiting the area, it’s coast, castles and pretty little towns. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

    Thank you so much for your kind review. I’m so pleased you all enjoyed your stay and hope you’ll visit us again! Anne. Property Owner

  • "The listing should really state that the owners live next door as we like full privacy."

    We only found out when we got there. They mustve gone into the garden at some point to remove garden cushions during overnight rain which we found quite intrusive. Nice property but could do with a shower.

    Thank you for your feedback. The privacy of our visitors is very important to us, however we have found that being on hand to answer any questions is appreciated by our guests. The cushions were removed when the garden was not in use because of a heavy downpour. They were dried and returned the following morning, again when the garden was not in use. We do hope that you enjoyed your stay in this beautiful area. Property Owner

  • "Everything has been thought of here and each room completely spotless."

    The kitchen has everything you could need (tea, coffee, milk, bread, pots/pans etc), the bedrooms are all done to a lovely standard and the living room is cosy with a snug by the window to look out over the garden. The garden itself is one of the biggest I’ve seen for a holiday let and has a table and chairs for dining and a bench for soaking up the early morning sun with leafy green views. It’s also totally dog safe! It’s a 5 minute walk down to the river which is beautiful. Overall the perfect relaxing setting for a wonderful break and I will definitely be returning.

  • "We had such a lovely stay here over the half term holidays - we have 3 children and a small dog."

    They all loved the space and the big garden. The bedrooms were all very comfy and spacious, the bathroom is downstairs. Everything was perfect, we appreciated the lovely scones and the coffee machine! My son appreciated the PlayStation! It was central to everything and we had a few trips to St Marys lighthouse. The only thing missing was a hairdryer!

    I’m so pleased you all enjoyed your stay with us. Feedback is very important to us and we now provide a hairdryer! Property Owner

  • "Communication with Anne was excellent throughout the stay, and this can make such a difference, and was helpful with some of the questions we asked."

    The cottage is in a nice location down a quiet drive and not far from lots of central places and within easy reach of the beach and shops. The property had a cosy feel to it, and had lots of extra touches which were very useful to keep us all entertained during out stay. There is a lovely walk along the river around 2 mins from the property which we made use of. To note there is no freezer in the property, but everything else was great, lovely place to stay.

    Thank you so much for your kind review and I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We take customer feedback seriously and as a result of your comment have now provided a under bench freezer in the kitchen. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very comfortable and every need thought of."

    (Best equipped self catering cottage we have stayed in). Lots of places to go and lovely beaches all easy to reach from its good situation and good road connections. Alan was very helpful when the electricity failed. We loved the area and found plenty to do.

  • "We came up to spend the Sunday , with a group of friends , meeting at Bambrugh Castle."

    All pets could run about on the really great beach , after which we visited The Copper Kettle , a great Tea Room. Pets welcome. The local area itself , has some great walks. Five minutes from the Cottage , is the River. A thoroughly pleasant walk. Ideally , we should have had a few more days to visit the area. That said , perhaps there will be a chance in the future. Very pleasant Cottage , beautiful views from the front Bedroom and Kitchen windows. Ideal getaway , with the Owners of the business just next door , a very pleasant and helpful couple. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.Pet friendly.

  • "The cottage was great."

    Very comfortable and was kitted out with lots of extras - especially the welcome items left by the hosts and all the garden extras in the boot room. The garden was great and very secure which meant we could leave the door open for our dog Molly to wander in and out as she pleased. It was very close to the local beaches and they were lovely and sandy. Other attractions could easily be reached by car within an hours drive at most. The hosts were very welcoming when we met on the drive taking Molly out on walks in the village etc. Would defo stay there again.

    Can highly recommend holiday cottage. Cannot recommend money grabbing tactics of Sykes Cottages.

  • "A lovely clean house with excellent amenities and a perfect stay for us."

    The owners were next door if we needed them, and waved as we entered, but otherwise left us to it which is what we needed after a hectic previous week. There were some lovely touches such as leaving is a few bits in the fridge! It was a perfect hub for us to explore Northumberland’s Coast and national parks and we’d definitely stay again.

  • "The property we stayed in was large, very tastefully decorated and comfortable."

    Lots of extra bits and pieces for a holiday with dogs, like additional entrance areas for wet shoes and towels, heated clothes airer for damp bits and pieces, plenty of coat hooks etc. You wouldn’t have thought it was ‘dog friendly’ accommodation as it was so clean and fresh, like no other dogs had been in there ! Particularly liked the extra effort of the hosts … shampoo and conditioner, washing up liquid, bin liners, bread, butter, milk and even fresh scones and jam ! The garden was beautiful and perfect for our two mini dachshunds, there was no way they were escaping ! A very peaceful and lovely outlook with no surrounding noise. We had a fabulous stay and the hosts who lived next door were extremely helpful in sorting a heating problem out very quickly when we arrived. I’m very reluctant to book ‘dog friendly’ accommodation as ifs often a bit off putting but this place exceeded expectations. Five stars !

If you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, head outside to the large well-maintained garden to indulge in a spot of alfresco dining, enveloped in the tranquil setting of the surrounding greenery and countryside.

Stepping back indoors, after a busy day of adventures retire to the sitting room to put your feet up in front of the television and enjoy a movie night, warming the room with the electric fire in the cooler evenings.
